Roloxin Lift was recently named an Allure breakthrough product of the year at the magazine’s annual Best of Beauty awards, so I felt compelled to share. What caught my eye was the fact that Dr. David McDaniel, a dermatologist and researcher in Virginia, was so intrigued by Roloxin Lift that he studied its formula at his own expense.

Doris Day, a dermatologist in New York City, told Allure that Roloxin Lift may be the first in a whole new category of anti-aging products. McDaniel agreed. Cosmetics and cosmeceuticals have gotten a lot of hype over the last few years for their ability to deliver instant results, he told me in an email. But most of them really didn’t deliver as promised. Roloxin Lift provides visible and immediate improvements that last all day into the evening, said McDaniel.

So how do you use this miracle product? Basically, you knead the little packet of lotion for about 10 seconds to activate it, then tear it open and apply a thin layer to your clean, damp face. You leave it on for five to seven minutes. It will dry like a mask and turn a chalky white color.

Tiny silica particles start binding together and sticking to the surface of the skin, with an assist from the film-forming ingredient chitosan glycolate. As it dries, the breathable film pulls your skin taut, leaving it feeling nice and smooth. You rinse it off by splashing your face with lukewarm water. You can then apply moisturizer, sunscreen, makeup, and you’re out the door. Roloxin Lift is safe to use every day.

McDaniel said that most of his patients are thrilled with the results. You’d particularly like Roloxin Lift if your pores tend to be on the larger side. “Some younger patients see improvement, but since they do not have the larger pores, fine lines, and wrinkles that older patients do, the results are not quite as much of a ‘wow’ factor when they first test it,” McDaniel said. My skin felt bright and flawless, like porcelain.

The effects of Roloxin Lift may be cumulative, too, although they have not been studied over an extended period of time. The product contains active ingredients designed to provide lasting improvements to the skin, McDaniel explained. He went on to say the findings of a study done overseas suggest the effects may be good for a while. “We just have not seen it personally yet, as our patients have not returned far enough out after they began treatment,” said McDaniel.

A few notes. The product smells and looks a little like Greek yogurt. And it doesn’t come cheap: a 10-day supply is $110 and a 30-day supply is $270.
