TYK Revelation Review
TYK Revelation is supposed to be a “botox alternative” without argireline, the one ingredient that is supposed to mimic the effects of botox over time. Argireline relaxes the facial muscles instead of freezing them, but essentially achieves the same effect. They claim TYK Revelation provides a matrixyl/collasyn complex.
Matrixyl actually produces higher levels of collagen and elastin, which is ultimately better than argireline, but not exactly comparable to botox. Still, its manufacturers, Can Do Spirit Inc, claim that it uses these ingredients as well as retinol and vitamins to renew your skin.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
TYK Revelation ingredients include D.I. Water, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, PEG-45 Palm Kernel Glycerides, Glycerin, C-13-14 Isoparaffin, Isostearyl Isostearate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyacrylamide, Polysorbate 60, Oleyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Urea, Lecithin, PEG-6, Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) Oil, Palmitoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Retinyl (Vitamin A) Palmitate, Retinol, Palmitoyl pentapeptide 3, Myristyol-tetrapeptide VA, Myristyol-pentapeptide KS, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Fragrance, Trisodium EDTA, Carbomer, Diazolidinyl Urea, Butylparaben, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Triethanolamine.
Their “active ingredients” manifest themselves at the bottom of the list, meaning extremely low concentrations. With retinyl palmitate and retinol, it could easily irritate your skin more than it helps, and these forms of vitamin A have not really been proven to reduce wrinkles. The rest of the ingredients and really the main ingredients include a couple moisturizers and quite a few harmful preservatives.
Overall Impression of TYK Revelation:
TYK Revelation at least uses some of the right ingredients, but only in extremely small and insignificant amounts. There are very few ingredients of worth, and most of the ingredients could do more damage to your skin than good, if any good at all. TYK Revelation is definitely not worth your money or your time.
