Plexaderm and Genucel are two popular brands who make cosmetics products, with a focus on anti-ageing formulas.
Since both Genucel and Plexaderm offer a similar range of anti-ageing formulas it can be difficult choosing the right product for the areas of your skin with the most prominent signs of ageing.
In this article, we are going to look at both brands so you can see the main differences and choose the best brand for fighting your wrinkles.
Plexaderm vs Genucel comparison table
What Is Plexaderm?
Plexaderm is a skincare brand that are most well known for their rapid reduction eye serum that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and bags under the eye fast.
This fast reduction, or should I say ‘temporary hiding of wrinkles’, is only a short lived solution in your fight against the long term increase in wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Once you apply the rapid eye serum under your eyes, be patient for around 10 to 15 minutes and let the formula dry.
Try not to pull any funny faces, just close your eyes and keep still. Facial movements are likely to break the layer of hardening cream in the same way you might crack a face mask when you giggle.
If you are in a rush getting ready in the morning, you can even use a low-speed, low heat setting on your hairdryer to speed up the drying process.
The rapid reduction serum will harden in your wrinkle lines creating the effect of a smoother layer of skin, where the wrinkle lines are filled in.
Even if you only apply a small amount the formula helps give the illusion that the wrinkles around your eyes are greatly reduced for around 10 hours after application.
The illusion works because of the silicates derived from shale clay that actually tighten your skin. Some people find them irritating though, so be careful to read the product information carefully before applying the formula on the thin and sensitive skin close to your eyes.
How does it work
How Plexaderm works depends on the two main ingredients, sodium silicate and magnesium aluminium silicate. These two materials adhere to the skin.
Whenever they dry, the skin is pulled slightly, providing a temporary fix to your eye wrinkles and bags. At the same time, the wrinkles are filled so that they don’t look uneven as they are pulled gently.
The plexaderm serum has a reputation for giving good short term results on most skin types. Product testing conducted by Plexaderm also shows good results. There doesn’t seem to be much doubt about whether the formula works, it does what it says, but you’ll pay a price for this temporary fix.
Because the formula is successful for a lot of users, this doesn’t mean the Plexaderm formula is the best solution for your anti ageing fight. If you want to look your best tonight, knock off a few year of ageing and hide some under eye wrinkles then this product will give you a good chance of achieving this.
What this formula won’t do is give you any long lasting results. It’s a short term fix, for a long term problem. If you want instant results that make you look better today, then feel free to apply Plexaderm, but if you want to give your skin the best chance of looking its best and slowing down the ageing process this isn’t for you.
One frequent complaint about the Plexaderm rapid reduction serum is that it doesn’t come in enough shades, leaving a white coloration underneath your eyes if your skin isn’t already ghostly white.
What is Genucel?
Genucel is another popular anti-wrinkle cream that many people support. This product specifically relies on anti-cancer drugs and natural oils to create more collagen and fight against wrinkles.
Some of these natural oils and ingredients include grapeseed oil and nutrient E.
These packages and products are specifically designed to reduce wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face. This includes products for the eyes, jaw, and facial skin as a whole.
Unlike Plexaderm, which has received a lot of mainstream success, Genucel hasn’t really been in the spotlight. Nevertheless, there are many positive results, especially with the brands jawline treatment.
Comparing Plexaderm vs Genucel
Plexaderm has more consistently positive results between these two products, meaning it’s more likely to make your skin look much more youthful bu only for a limited amount of time.
At the same time, you might want Genucel if you aren’t focused on wrinkles around your eyes specifically. As we mentioned above, Plexaderm’s best products are focused specifically on improving eye wrinkles, whereas Genucel offer a wider range of products for your entire face.
How long do they last?
Plexaderm rapid reduction eye serum lasts for a maximum of 10 hours but you are likely to see your wrinkles start to return before you reach 10 hours. This should be long enough for a day at work and will cover you on a night out.
Genucel immediate effects 2 is one of the brands longer lasting eye serums. This product will smooth out your fine lines for between 15 and 24 hours.
Plexiderm use a range of ingredient across their range of anti ageing products. The ingredients I think are the most interesting and key ingredients in plexaderm formulas are; Hyaluronic acid, ceramides, solluble collagen, peptides and seaweed extract.
The plexaderm rapid reduction eye serum has sodium silicate as it’s main key ingredient. Sodium silicate act as a firming agent when it has chance to dry.
This means that when you apply it and let it dry it will harden on your skin and create a smoother appearance where the formula has filled in your wrinkle lines.
Genucel use a different set of ingredients when compared with Plexaderm. The Genucel plant stem cell therapy formula contains eyeseryl which is a tetrapeptide. Eyeseryl inhibits glycation, which is the process that happens after eating sugar.
Eating too many of the wrong kinds of sugar can damage collagen and elastin and the purpose of eyeseryl is to stop this form happening and protect your skins natural collagen and elastin from becoming loose and damaged.

Which is better Plexaderm or Genucel
