How to Rate Wrinkle Cream

by Shannon Moudry
  • Overview

    According to dictionary.com, a wrinkle is defined as a line or crease in the skin. Improper skin care, age and environmental factors can all contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Many manufacturers have formulated products that claim to help prevent, reduce and even reverse wrinkles. Some of these products, however, do not live up to their claims and so it is important to rate a wrinkle cream before purchasing it.
 
  • Step 1

    Rate the wrinkle cream according to its effectiveness by giving it a zero, one-half star or a whole star. Effectiveness can be determined by finding out if there are any clinical trials available for the product that actually back up or support the manufacturer's claims. Also check to see if the company explains the scientific basis behind the product and if these claims are supported by actual scientific evidence.
  • Step 2

    Give the wrinkle cream another zero, one-half star or whole star according to the ingredients it contains. Check to see that the ingredients are fully disclosed on the label or package insert. Look for ingredients that are known for their antiaging effects such as retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, coenzyme Q10, copper peptides, kinetin and tea extracts.
  • Step 3

    Rate the wrinkle cream's cost, giving it a zero, one-half star, or a whole star. Look for things such as a free trial of the product, free shipping and how the price compares to other products containing the same active ingredients.
  • Step 4

    Give the wrinkle cream a zero, one-half star or a whole star for customer service. Customer service can include a money-back guarantee on the product, how well the company responds to customer inquires and if the company openly discloses their phone number and email address.
  • Step 5

    Rate the wrinkle cream's website and give it a zero, one-half star or a whole star. Rate the website according to how easy it is to navigate, whether or not ingredients and scientific evidence are posted on the site and whether the site contains real customer testimonials or not.

  • The higher the wrinkle cream rating, the better chances you will have of obtaining results from the product. When purchasing a wrinkle cream, it is best to choose a product with a rating of 3.5 stars or above.
