Firmacare Face Therapy claims to be an active anti-aging treatment that increases stem cell vitality, diminishes wrinkles, boosts epidermal regeneration, and improves the skin barrier, which they add will help it cope with climate change. Firmacare Face Therapy states its ingredients have been clinically proven to work, with results you will see in just 15 days.
What’s in Firmacare Face Therapy that they say makes it so great for my skin?
Firmacare Face Therapy boasts it contains “one of the most advanced combinations of superior ingredients” ever discovered to reduce the telltale signs of aging. They are listed as:
Bio-plasma: They state it’s a “unicellular micro organism of marine origins”, which sounds to us like a fancy way to say seaweed. And while seaweed is a popular ingredient in many cosmetics and/or cosmecueticals that is rich in vitamins and nutrients, its anti-aging properties are unsubstantiated by science.
DMAE: Aka deanol. They insist it provides “ultra firming benefits” as well as reduces fine lines and wrinkles. However, according to Whole Health Chicago, there are no sound studies to support these claims.
Retinyl Palmitate: Aka vitamin A. Firmacare Face Therapy states this ingredient will accelerate cell turnover and reduce appearance of wrinkles. But the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit dedicated to consumer safety recommends avoiding any cosmetic products with vitamin A, retinyl palmitate, retinol, retinyl acetate, retinyl linoleate, and retinoic acid because they may increase the risk of cancer.
EssenSkin: “A especially designed ingredient to address essential nutrient deficiencies.” They don’t say what this ingredient actually is.
Conclusion: The seaweed may dry on your skin to make it temporarily feel firmer, but the retinyl palmitate may shorten your lifespan.
What do they charge for the Firmacare Face Therapy face cream trial offer?
Firmacare Face Therapy offers what they say is a 15-day trial for $4.95 shipping that will allow you to check out the benefits of their cream. When you use Firmacare Face Therapy, they encourage you to take a selfie on day 1 and then again at day 15. They promise you’ll notice a big difference in your appearance.
However, the Terms and Conditions (aka the fine print you should probably read but usually don’t):
- You actually only have 14 days from date of order (not receipt) for you to try it.
- If you do not like it, you must contact them within these 14 days and send it back, postmarked no later than the 14th day.
- After this date, you will be billed $86.95 for the jar of Firmacare Face Therapy you already received.
- You’ll also be signed up for an auto ship program, where you are sent another Firmacare Face Therapy order every month and charged $86.95.
- There is a “negative option clause”, which states you may be liable for future goods and services.
- Refunds are only for “defective” merchandise.

Bottom Line: Is Firmacare Face Therapy a good product to help my aging skin?
No. Firmacare Face Therapy has ingredients that are unproven and might possibly be dangerous for your health. If that doesn’t scare you off, remember you don’t even have enough time to try the product to see if it will actually work before they charge you $86.95 and keep it coming every month until you beg for mercy.

How to look younger
As Baby Boomers continue to retire, the billion dollar anti-aging business is now the thing that’s booming. We searched for the Fountain of Youth and not only is there no magic elixir that will turn back the hands of time, what we did find may shock you.
Still, there are some very simple things you can do to reduce age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles or at least make people think you are younger than you are.
First, wash your face regularly but not too much. Next, use a gentle exfoliate – again, not to harsh or too often.
Then, moisturize. When it comes to cheap vs. expensive facial creams, we discovered that there is little difference (aside from the price) – check out the recommendations here!
It’s also important stay out of the sun. While we need the sun for vitamin A, damage from its rays is one the main culprits behind age spots and wrinkles. Wear a large brimmed hat and SPF 30 that protects from both UVA and UVB.
Finally, one of the easiest ways we’ve found to appear younger is to smile. A study conducted found that a photo of a person smiling was judged on average to be 2 years younger than their actual age. Smiling also makes you look more attractive and a fake smile can even lead to a real one, decreasing your stress and lifting your mood.
In other words, put on some sunscreen and smile! Enjoy your life today and don’t waste money or energy trying to turn back the hands of time.
We hope this helps you make an informed decision about Firmacare Face Therapy. Let us know below!
