Review: Serious Skin Care InstA-tox

A review of a wrinkle smoothing cream that isn't cheap but does work

Serious Skin Care InstA-tox

A lot of women, most in fact, simply cannot afford expensive Botox or collagen injections to help smooth out their skin. However, that doesn’t mean that they don’t want to look beautiful too. Quite the contrary, every woman wants to look her best at all times.

Serious Skin Care believes in listening to its customers and responding to their requests. One of the most requested was a wrinkle smoothing cream that could help to minimize the appearance of wrinkled skin on the face and neck.

Serious Skin Care response has been a product called InstA-tox that, it claims, helps a woman’s skin look younger, firmer, and infinitely smooth, reducing the appearance of facial creases and making pores look smaller. I actually found this to be the case when I tried the product; the result really is more youthful, resilient, and even textured skin.

Serious Skin Care InstA-tox is easy to use. After cleansing your neck and face, it is important to thoroughly rinse and dry the skin that will be treated with InstA-tox. Once ready, you simply apply the serum over the wrinkles, and lines that you want to smooth out. The key is to apply the product lightly. In this particular instance, less is key. More won’t do anything but waste the product.

Once the InstA-tox is applied, it is important to keep the face expressionless for between three and five minutes. You should feel a tightening sensation, which indicates that product is working as it should, settling into the pores, lines, creases, and wrinkles. As it dries, InstA-tox pulls the skin tighter together so make it look smoother, sleeker, and infinitely more youthful.

After application of InstA-tox you must not apply moisturizer or makeup over the product until it is thoroughly dry. If you do, the results of the product will be instantly negated.

Serious Skin Care products, including InstA-tox from the A-Defiance line, can be purchased online at or through Home Shopping Network or any of its affiliates. The cost is dependent upon how the product is purchased. If purchased in individual .75 fl oz tubes, the price is $28.50. However, when purchased in conjunction with one of Serious Skin Care’s many beauty kits, it runs between $10 and $15 per tube.

Granted, this isn’t a cheap product. However, its effects are well worth the end result - beautiful looking, line and wrinkle reduced skin with tight, youthful pores and a lovely healthful glow.

FINAL VERDICT: This one is a winner if you use it as directed.

You wrote that your skin *was* tighter, but how long did that last? 1 hr? 1 day? 2 days?

Angie, the tightness will vary in length depending upon factors like air humidity, exposure to water (rain, the beach, etc.), re-application of makeup, etc. The more moisture put into the skin, the quicker the breakdown of the product.
