Skin changes in the mid-thirties. Seeking an effective yet entirely organic anti-aging solution? The Z Skin Age Defying System contains eight 100% organic products with an astounding array of fast-acting, beauty superhero, all-natural ingredients.
Z Skin combines ingredients proven effective individually and when used in tandem, are marvelous. The combination of ingredients intrigued us, there is such an amazing cocktail of combinations used within the line. Ingredients include both National Institute of Health studied, state of the art newly discovered Apple Stem Cells for wrinkle reduction to centuries-old methods used is Aveduredic medicine for skin and hair beauty. There are three reasons we find this particularly interesting.
- If you buy these ingredients individually if you can find them, they are often pricey. The aforementioned Apple Stem Cell sells for at least $30 as a serum. Some ingredients are practically impossible to find in organic skincare.
- Typically, there are two or three main ingredients in a product with supporting ingredients, but nearly ALL of the ingredients in these lines are each “beauty stars” all on their own. There aren’t the filler ingredients typically seen even in organic skin care lines. And each product boasts numerous skincare superstars.
- Z Skin reports that because there are so many active, effective ingredients, that it works 30 times faster than their competitors to erase fine lines, wrinkles, dark age spots, restoring hydration, all while lifting and firming. That sounds like a big get, so we decided to test the Z Skin Age Defying System for ourselves.

PRODUCTS IN THE Z SKIN AGE DEFYING SYSTEM SET
Face Lift Toner
Face Lift Toner contains Rosehips, Jojoba, Vitamin E, Orange, Grape, Safflower, Flaxseed, Baobab, Myrrh, Juniper Berry, Papaya, Neem, and Castor.
RESULTS: I am normally not a fan of toner because it stings and makes my face feel tight, but all of the ingredients in this toner are more hydrating and soothing than skin-stripping.
Face Lift Wash
Face Lift Wash is a lightly exfoliating cleanser that uses pumpkin, sorbic acid, bitter melon and raspberries to gently remove dry, dead skin. It also contains several humectants including honey and olive to soothe the skin. Follow using the wash with the lotion.
RESULT: Skin feels soft, hydrated and not tight or dry after use. The exfoliation is mild, but I don’t see dead skin or flakes on the surface of my skin and my face feels smooth, similar to when using a sonic facial brush.
Z Skin Lift Lotion
Z Skin Lift Lotion is an SPF 45 lotion that helps tighten, lift and lighten discoloration. Apply twice a day after washing the face. It contains:
- Maca reduces the effects of aging and gives the skin strength.
- Triphala is used in Averudic medicine to remove toxins.
- Hibiscus naturally firms skin. It also contains Vitamin C to treat acne, scars, and eczema. It is called the Botox plant because it retains the skin’s elasticity, making it look younger for longer, and treats fine lines.
- Amalaki is Amla or Indian Gooseberry, which prevents damage to skin and soothes redness.
- Bhringarai is used in Ayurvedic medicine as an Antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
- Vitamin A & D is a natural Retinol
- Wakame is a seaweed used in several of the products.
- Cream Tartar is excellent for adult acne.
- Rooibos is an anti-inflammatory
- Kelp has powerful anti-aging properties
- Apple Stem Cells are a highly effective form of stem cells which target wrinkles.
- Rosehip is a concentrated Vitamin C that soothes skin
- Red Algae enhances the skin’s barrier function, replenishes moisture, and increases its moisture retention capabilities.
- Hyaluronic acid holds its’ weight in moisturizer, plumping the skin, making fine wrinkles and mild sagging disappear temporarily. It also drives active ingredients to deep skin layers for better results.
RESULT: This feels light but supple on the skin, it goes on light, absorbs well and is not greasy, but does have a light dewy after the finish that I like.
DAYTIME EYE CREAM
The Daytime Eye Cream has an SPF 8 for protection around the delicate eye area. It targets dark circles, puffiness and eye bags.
Unique ingredients include Wakeme, a type of seaweed, Chamomile to soothe and Coffee to combat puffiness. Another super ingredient is Spirulina, which removes darkness around the eyes, and the slew of vitamins Spirulina contains nourishes skin until it glows.
RESULT: Let it sink in for a few minutes before applying eye makeup, but it is light and absorbs very well.
NIGHTIME EYE CREAM
TARGETS: tightening, fights Crow’s feet and fine lines
CONSISTENCY: light, absorbs well
Also contains Spirulina, Wakeme, and many of the ingredients used in the rest of the product line. It also contains Tumeric, Elder Flower, Bacopa and Rose Absolute.
- Turmeric fights inflammation, dryness, and redness.
- Elder Flower is rich in bioflavonoids that help prevent wrinkles
- Bacopa is Brahmi, long used in India for hair and skin. It is a free-radical fighter, which means you look younger longer.
- Rose Absolute rejuvenates and firms skin
RESULT: I like that my eyes are not puffy in the morning after wearing this cream. My eye area does seem smoother and brighter. Crow’s feet do look a little better even after about a week.
AGE DEFYING EXTREME MOISTURIZER
- Age Defying Extreme Moisturizer contains deeply hydrating and moisturizing ingredients such as nutrient rich carrier oils like safflower, avocado, almond, coconut, honey, shea butter, as well as grapefruit, ginger, and cinnamon. It is for use on chapped, dry, red and irritated areas of skin.
- RESULT: Really hydrating, very useful after sun exposure, and on dry chapped lips. I like to apply it after using the Hydroxy Face Mask.
AGE DEFYING HYDROXY FACE MASK
- TARGETS: Discoloration, scars, restores healthy skin
- Hydroxy comes in various forms, better known as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (from citrus, in this case, an acid from lemons) lactic acids (from milk) and glycolic acid, which comes from sugar, all in one mask. It is combined with several skin-supporting ingredients to fade scars and promote skin rejuvenation.
- RESULT: I was surprised this was as effective as an all-natural product. It is an every other evening type of mask, not as powerful as a weekly or monthly treatment, but there is no dryness or redness, no recovery time. As a side benefit, I noticed some of my stubborn blackheads loosened up. I liked the results on my throat, it reduces the appearance of the horizontal lines mid-neck. It smells of the Tartar and lemon upon application, but the scent dissipates as it dries, and I didn’t mind it since it is a treatment, not a lotion to wear all day.
AGE DEFYING NECK CREAM
Deeply hydrating, it nourishes and restores the skin with organic Shea Butter, Grape Seed, Vitamin E, Almond, Rosehip, and Orange. Grape seed is the foundation for high-end skin care lines like Caudalie and is highly effective in restoring delicate skin on areas like the throat, while still being light and easy to absorb.
TIP: Apply from jawline to chest
The result, when used together, makes for a formidable skin care program. I did not expect to see results as quickly as was promised, but I was especially impressed with how quickly my skin had a glow, and the improvement in fine lines and crow feet around my eyes looked better within the week. I particularly like how skin improves without redness, irritation or peeling skin.
