Many would be asking, what is this product???
Extracted from site:-
Pentaxyl is a proprietary blend of herbal extracts and the breakthrough formulas of the Matrixyl® Complex and Argireline, which reduce the appearance of wrinkles and furrows, help skin look thicker and firmer, and gives the skin a youthful glow. Pentaxyl has harnessed the age-fighting power of "bio-peptide" technology, with three age-fighting bio-peptides (1) Pamitoyl-Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) (2) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (3) Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline). Peptides are a low molecular weight amino acid group that are building blocks of proteins that make up plants and animals. Palmitoyl_Pentapeptide-3 was discovered at National Institute of Health.
Pentaxyl may temporarily reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Skin will take on a more youthful appearance. While nothing can rewind time, Pentaxyl has been shown to support a beautiful, resilient, flawless look by fighting against the visible signs of ageing.

Pentaxyl™ is a light-weight non greasy cream and I used a pea-size for my whole face (as I have combination skin and would like to go easy initially).
We are encourage to use circular motion to massage in Pentaxyl™ into our skin to allow the cream to be properly absorbed by the skin as well as promote blood circulation. I love the minty after-feel after applying Pentaxyl™!

So you might be wondering now, what happen to me that made me love this product??? Let's take a look at my naked face taken in Dec 2014, shall we?
You can see from the picture above that I have deep laugh line on the right side of my face. And for whatever reason, it is more obvious and deeper than my left face. So I decided to try Pentaxyl™ on my right laugh line, and massaging any residue into the rest of the face.
I kept to my usual skincare routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising. Without changing any products in my skincare regime, I only added Pentaxyl™ to apply after the toner and before moisturiser. As a start, I experience a few pimples popping out but they went off after a week and I haven't had any breakouts after which. I interpreted this as my skin trying to get used to the new product.
Even though it is encouraged to use Pentaxyl™ for both day and night, I decided to just stick with applying Pentaxyl™ during the night for my skin to get more norishment and repair through the night.
Honestly it did not occur to me to see obvious effects as I believe skincare products always need time to work their magic. But yesterday I noticed my laugh lines on the right face seem to be looking lighter and quickly asked my hubby for confirmation. He agreed!!! I decided to take a picture again and do a side by side comparison below.
From the picture above, I can see that my right laugh line is indeed lighter!!! I am really glad because I have been wondering what I can do to lighten these lines for the longest time, especially when I am getting older everyday. What makes me so convinced that Pentaxyl™ works is because the improvement can be seen over a period of 1 month and me only applying it during the night (instead of both day and night).
In case you are wondering Pentaxyl™ must be super expensive to be effective, you will be pleasantly surprised that it is only $106.75 for 118ml. This is totally affordable in today's market considering the price of another similar product from Strivectin-SD is already double!

You have finally reach the end of my review post and I hope Pentaxyl™ is able to help you like how it helped me!
