This AHA moisturizer contains glycolic and lactic acids, but even combined the amount isn’t high enough to help exfoliation. Plus the third ingredient is triethanolamine and that high-pH ingredient shouldn’t be a primary element of the formula because it is irritating in higher amounts and offers no benefit for skin.
Ignore the claims that this product is targeted toward the skin-care needs of women in their 20s, it isn’t. There are some great ingredients present, but the amounts are too small to be of help for skin of any age. Regeneration Skin Renewing Lotion is best considered a moisturizer for normal to slightly dry skin, but there is nothing about this worth considering over several other moisturizers in the BeautiControl line or hundreds of other well-formulated moisturizers from other lines.
It’s never too early to begin discouraging the signs of aging! This repair product is specially formulated to target the needs of 20s skin, and is part of the “R” in BeautiControl’s exclusive M.R.P. formula for total skin wellness. Used daily, Regeneration Skin Renewing Lotion helps reduce the appearance of those first signs of aging such as fine lines. It delivers alpha hydroxy acids to help improve the overall appearance of skin clarity, tone, firmness and elasticity.

Texas-based BeautiControl has been around for nearly three decades and has maintained a consistent focus on skin care. Most recently they have shaped their line around the concept of creating your own in-home spa, which the company uses to entice women to host BeautiControl parties for their friends and family. Whether you find out about (or end up purchasing) these products by attending a BeautiControl party or you happen across their Web site, there are some compelling reasons to consider several BeautiControl products. Let's start with the positives.
The best face forward side of BeautiControl is that their price point is not over the top, and mostly reasonable; plus several of their products are exceptional. We also think their overall approach to taking care of skin is well-intentioned. Without question, the ingredients in their best products demonstrate they're keeping up with the state-of-the-art. If they stopped including problematic ingredients and discontinued the poorly formulated products this line would be a much stronger option for consumers looking to take excellent care of their skin while remaining brand-loyal.
BeautiControl's focus on launching more and more miracle products with incredibly misleading claims might help them sell more products, but it doesn't always make for good skin care. And how come they have so few facial moisturizers with sunscreen? Protecting skin from sunlight indisputably keeps it looking younger, firmer, smoother, and even-toned far longer than anything else you can do for skin.
BeautiControl's makeup collection has been streamlined a bit, and that's good news. The foundation colors are divided into warm, cool, and neutral tones though the warm tones (those that begin with the letter Y) are more neutral than warm, which is good news. The cool shades (those that begin with the letter P) are the least impressive. Throughout the color line are some happy surprises, such as the improved powder blush and eyeshadow trios but also some really bland products such as the eye pencil and some gimmicky primer-type products. You'll find some great products whether you want to shop BeautiControl's color line piecemeal or assemble a complete makeup wardrobe, and the prices are reasonable.
