Hi ally -- I haven't tried it but on the medhealthreports site, bellaplex is rated #8. In tests it received the following points (5 being the top) 5 for product effectiveness for wrinkle reduction; 4 for skin cell renewal - collagen; 3 for boosting hydration; 3 for improving skin imperfections; & 4 for firming & tightening skin. the #1 rated cream was Dermaxin. Prevage was # 3 --which I tried it when it first came out and didn't like it at all. Look up the site -- you can see all the products and their ingredients.
