Does Firma-Face XR Really Work?

The Firma-Face XR is a temporary facial firmer that everyone can use, they claim.  According to them, the Firma-Face XR will cover both the face and neck.  This lotion when applied, is supposed to show immediate effects even with the first application, as it dries up.  They claim that skin will look tighter, firmer, and texture will be smoother and younger looking.  Lines and wrinkles will dramatically reduce, and the skin under the eyes will tighter resulting in a more open and awake appearance.  Used every morning, they claim that Firma-Face XR will continue to enhance one’s facial appearance.  Because it is invisible, this temporary facial firmer is also very natural looking.  The Firma-Face XR is easy to apply.  Just put it on, splash water to gently rinse off, and pat dry with a towel.

Yes - Old Formula Better

I have been using for about three years. They recently changed the packaging and formula. While the new formula works – not as good as old formula for tightening. Old formula had a drawback as it left white film – but you just dab it off – still works better.

It does make a good bit of difference on even larger wrinkles and creases. I bought it off of Ebay for about 5 bucks and it was a little watery and left a slight film after you are supposed to leave it on for a few minutes, but it easily washes off and the effects last half of the day. […]

I’ve been using Firma-Face XR for the last 7 days, and I love it. Prior to purchasing the product, I read numerous reviews on it; people either “absolutely loved it, or absolutely hated it. But after reviewing it I still felt curious and compelled to give it a try, and since it came with a 30 day money back guarantee, I thought what the hell, worst case scenario I could slap the return label on it and send it back, no harm no foul.
I received Firma-Face in the mail just after a few days of ordering from HSN. I opened the box and read the instructions and ingredients carefully. The first few ingredients listed were acid compounds I didn’t recognize; a bit unsettling, vanity aside, I had no intentions of burning my skin off although I did recognize one of the acids: glycolic, an ingredient commonly used in facial peels. The only other ingredients that I could readily identify were retinol; a stimulant for collagen production, and caffeine; when applied topically constricts the skin tissue therefore acting as a firming agent to tighten and reduce the size of your pores. I followed the instructions to the letter, it was very easy. I applied Firma-Face and set the kitchen timer for 4 minutes; it recommends leaving it on for an additional minute after the initial 3 minutes prior to rinsing. Within seconds after applying, I could feel a slight burning followed by a cooling sensation as it tightened. After rinsing it off my complexion looked flawless, almost like glass the pores shrank substantially and the fine lines around my chin and mouth where less noticeable, and even the droopy skin on my eye lids looked firmer making my eyes appear fresh and awake. Afterwards, I mixed a little bit of the product into my moisturizer and eye cream and applied it directly to my face and eyes followed by additional moisturizer; the product tends to be a bit drying from the acid compounds and can otherwise leave a slight opaque matte finish without the additional moisturizer.
In all fairness, I think for those who hated it, may have had unrealistic expectations or may have extremely sensitive skin. It is as it states: a TEMPORARY result, not permanent. You have to approach it for what it is; a facial and pre-makeup primer not a” miracle” in a tub. However, with continued use the effects of glycolic acid and retinol are lasting, but initially the immediate effect is temporary; since I’m not a chemist or dermatologist, I’m still unsure as to how all the other ingredients play into it
What I absolutely loved most about it was how liberating it was not to have to apply any foundation or powder afterwards, it evened out my skin tone beautifully I just lightly added some blush and lipstick, and finished with a touch of mascara; I didn’t want to detract from the beauty and clarity of my new skin. On a value level, I think it’s a great value, I’ve shelled out hundreds and thousands of dollars over the years for injections and retinol at the dermatologist, so at $50.00 for a 2 month supply, that’s $300 a year and I’ve spent twice that at the makeup counter with less results I strongly feel it’s an excellent value and a great addition to my tool box/makeup kit. Just bear in mind that it’s a tool, not a magic wand.
53 & loving it!

Yes - Works very well but worried about ingredients

Firma face is so incredible. My 60 yr old face imediatly shrunk every pore and droop of my turkey neck and bags. I just worry about the ingredient of the liquid glass. Thats the 2nd ingredient listed;sodium silicate. This is not all natural. in fact has some chemicals. So I am interested in the long term use
