LifeCell: Does LifeCell Work?
Even if LifeCell was the best anti-aging skin cream on the market, the ridiculously over-exaggerated website would deter most potential customers. The official company website is presented as a ‘personal’ open letter from the developer of LifeCell, a woman named Michelle Bell, who delivers the information on what is basically a one-page advertisement for the product. It is written in a very informal, unprofessional manner, referring to the reader as ‘girlfriend’ and name-dropping celebrity names throughout.
The LifeCellsite is so long and repetitive that it is doubtful if anyone would take the time to read it in its entirety and it makes it extremely difficult to actually find the parts that contain any useful information about the product. It is claimed that some of the key active ingredients in LifeCell have been featured in a couple of major media outlets such as the New York Times and NBC news, and quotes from these sources are provided. However, it does not seem that LifeCell has been mentioned as a product in its own right.
There are customer testimonials scattered throughout the website, some of which include ‘Before and After’ shots. Most of the testimonials refer to the ‘horrors’ of being mistaken for someone much older and how using LifeCell has saved them from further embarrassment. Because LifeCell is described as an alternative to skin injection treatments like Botox, the site devotes some space to describing the dangerous side effects of these procedures.
LifeCell – Product Description
No actual list of ingredients is shown for LifeCell and it takes the consumer a while to find the part of the site that contains any ingredient details.
LifeCell does in fact contain some good anti-aging ingredients such as D3PA, Ubiquinone, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Deanol, Acetyl Hexapeptide 3 and Nitric Oxide. In combination, these ingredients are designed to address a number of problems that occur in aging skin. The cream formula promises to brighten skin tone, reduce visible broken capillaries, diminish puffiness under the eyes, plump the lips, and deeply hydrate the skin. Ubiquinone is a good anti-oxidant that is particularly useful in fighting free radicals in the body and helping prevent future damage. In addition to this, LifeCell claims to have the ability to boost collagen production naturally, rather than just include it in synthetic form which apparently has no effect at all.
No clinical trials are included as proof of LifeCells’ performance although there are references and statistics for some of the key ingredients. Unfortunately no amounts are given for the LifeCell ingredients so it is not known how potent the cream is.

LifeCell – The Bottom Line
It is amazing that any consumer would really purchase this product given the scant information provided by the company. While it may be a good cream it is hardly likely to be a ‘Nobel Prize winning-worthy breakthrough’ and certainly not worth the cost of $189.00 for a 40-day supply.
Any consumer would be advised to avoid this particular brand and look for a more reputable cream that contains similar anti-oxidant and collagen-boosting ingredients.
