Is this 'miracle' cream everything it's been made out to be?
Disclaimer: This case study was done independently by Product Panda and has not been modified by Amour Skincare. We have their permission to repost this to our own website.
The product: Amour Skincare's Repair and Renew cream: This product has been popping up on our news feeds for the past 2 months, making massive claims about what it can do for the skin in such a short period of time, so for our first product review, we figured this would be a fantastic starting point.
Amour Skincare claims that the Repair and Renew cream combats:
➡️ Eczema, dermatitis & psoriasis
➡️ Acne and rosacea
➡️ Dry skin
➡️ Dull skin, thinning skin and uneven skin tone
➡️ Burns, sunburn and nappy rash
➡️ Skin infections and excess sebum
How do they claim this product works to combat all of the above skin issues?
The cream claims to repair the barrier function. As we know a broken barrier function is the main cause of many skin issues.
For those that don't know what the barrier function does - its function is to protect the body from excessive water loss, as well as preventing the penetration of harmful compounds via the epidermis.
What product panda did?
We visited forums all over the internet looking for women of all ages and skin types, with the skin problems that the Repair and Renew cream claims to combat. We asked volunteers for their honest feedback on how effective it was compared to current products they use.
About the selected women:
We selected women who were aged between 30 and 70, with various skin types and skin conditions. These varied from normal skin through to scaly skin and those with problematic skin through to those just looking to brighten up their dull skin.
Treating skin issues:
Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis:
A majority of women reported that the cream had a positive impact on eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis over a 2 week period. Varying results included keeping it under control, to the problem disappearing entirely.
It should also be noted that a smaller percentage of ladies reported that it had no impact on these conditions. Important - None of the volunteers could report back as to whether or not this was a permanent fix or temporary whilst using the product.
3 of the women with adult acne tried this product for a 2 week period and as a result 2 of them felt this product had the same or more of an effect than previous products they had been using to control their acne.
This was 1 of 2 massive stand outs. Over 3/4 of women that used the cream that had some sort of facial redness, felt they saw a noticeable improvement. Some said the improvement was very significant and others said it was minimal, but the changes noted over a 2 week period were visible to the naked eye. Important - It's important to note that the women said they needed to continue to use the product. Upon waking up in the morning the rosacea came back, but once they used the cream again improvements would be visible again.
This was the second stand out. All women looking for an improvement on their dry skin said the cream made a significant difference in the appearance of dryer than normal skin.
Dull skin, thinning skin and uneven skin tone:
The majority of women said that their skin looked brighter and that the cream helped to even out their skin tone.
Important - None of the women felt like it made their skin feel thicker.
Would our participants buy it themselves?
Overwhelmingly our participants said the pot was very small and costly at £19.99, however based on the results they saw, a large majority would continue to use the product and consider repurchasing once the cream ran out.
Based on the ingredients, we're unsure how so many of our participants are seeing such fantastic results, but does this really matter? It seems this cream could actually be what Amour Skincare is hyping this up to be. The most impressive thing is how quickly our volunteers were seeing results. The less impressive thing is that this product is not a cure, but something you will need to continue to use in order to see the results, which could get costly. Is it worth the investment? We'll let you decide.
