Multi-Action Sculpting Cream by City Beauty Review

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Feb 1, 2019

The Multi-Action Sculpting Cream from City Beauty is an intensive moisturizing product meant to visibly restore your skin’s elasticity to reduce the effects of aging. The company claims that this cream’s formula will nourish your skin so that it develops a “taut, springy” feel that visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

City Beauty is a luxury skincare brand based in Los Angeles that is dedicated to helping women look their best as they age with “functional beauty” products that they claim offer more than surface-level skin benefits.

The company is most known for City Lips, a lip-plumping gloss that we’ve highlighted before. Their Multi-Action Sculpting Cream expands the collection by purportedly targeting the underlying causes of thinning, sagging skin to increase toning and tautness.

Will this cream work as described? You’ll have your answer after reading this article.

How Does the City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream Work?

The company claims that the sculpting cream can offer benefits to all skin types. To use, scoop a small amount into your hands to warm it up before massaging it where your skin needs the treatment.

According to the company’s marketing material, the Sculpting Cream works due to three proprietary compounds that it contains: EASYLIANCE™, PROGELINE™, and IDEALIFT™.

Below are the benefits City Beauty claims these compounds add to the cream:

  • EASYLIANCE™: This ingredient is derived from acacia and sunflower, and purportedly gives the skin a tighter appearance within five minutes of use by forming a contouring network on the skin’s surface that reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • PROGELINE™: Promising to decrease your skin’s levels of progerin (a skin-aging protein) by 22%, this peptide ingredient restores your body’s natural repair process. The compound is also claimed to help promote healthy levels of collagen and elastin in your skin.

  • IDEALIFT™: This compound is claimed to stimulate elastin synthesis to improve the structure of your skin so that it holds its shape without sagging.

About the City Beauty Multi-Action Body Sculpt Ingredients

These benefits sound impressive, but it’s hard to unpack any details without knowing the specifics behind these proprietary ingredients. Can we learn more from the ingredients list?

Let’s take a closer look by listing some of the ingredients included in this cream:

  • Water
  • Butylene glycol
  • Caprylic/capric triglyceride
  • Isononyl isononanoate
  • Glyceryl stearate
  • Acacia Senegal gum
  • Aloe barbadensis leaf extract
  • Camellia sinensis (green tea)
  • Avena sativa (oat) kernel extract
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Zinc gluconate
  • Copper gluconate

We don’t claim to be chemists at HighYa, but our research into third-party websites like WebMD and the EWG cosmetics database showed us that most of these ingredients are frequent additions to skin creams and act as moisturizers, skin conditioning and thickening agents, emollients, solvents, fragrances, and preservatives.

Nothing stood out to us as potentially dangerous about this product, though Acacia Senegal gum does have a slight risk of organ system toxicity (but only when ingested). Likewise, some people have skin sensitivities to phenoxyethanol, so it might be smart to try a small amount of this cream before committing to treatment if you think you are one of them.

What Does City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream Cost?

At the time of writing, this sculpting cream was sold exclusively on City Beauty’s website. The price per jar depends on how many you purchase, with one costing $49, two $88 ($44 each), and three $117 ($39 each).

The company offers a 60-day trial for each purchase, meaning that you can request a full refund if you don’t like the changes you see within two months of use.

You can get in touch with any further questions by contacting the company through phone (1-800-347-1558) or their email page at support@citybeauty.com.

A Look at the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream Reviews

While we couldn’t find any independent reviews of this sculpting cream online, the product’s reviews on the City Beauty website and Facebook page still provide plenty of information about what users think of it.

Overall, the reviews we saw were impressively positive about this product. Many people reported that they noticed differences in the texture and toning of their skin after a few weeks of use. Some even said that friends and family complimented them on their appearance.

A few people weren’t as enamored with the cream because they felt that it dried out their skin and left it feeling tight. However, the vast majority of reviews we read awarded the product five stars.

Even so, it’s important to note this potentially isn’t a balanced perspective because all of the reviews are moderated and published by City Beauty.

Similar Products to City Beauty’s Multi-Action Sculpting Cream

For those looking to tone their skin, there are other sculpting cream brands to consider besides City Beauty.

Two popular options are the StriVectin Tightening and Sculpting Face Cream, and Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream. Are either better contenders for your face? Let’s look closer.

The StriVectin Cream promises to nourish your skin to visibly plump up your face and improve definition. The product relies on a ‘proprietary NIA-114 technology’, which claims to target problem areas in the skin to deliver results that pack a punch.

The company website states that 97% of users report firmer skin after eight weeks of use, and Amazon reviews show this cream averages 3.5 stars out of five after 40 reviews. Pricewise, you’ll pay $95, or approximately twice as much as you’d pay for a jar of sculpting cream from City Beauty.

Another product worth considering is the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream. Like the other two creams, it promises to penetrate your skin to provide deep hydration that improves elasticity while reducing wrinkles.

This cream contains hyaluronic acid, a common compound in skincare products that’s used to help skin cells maintain their moisture content.

You’ll pay less for this product than the others, as it costs $21.74 per 1.7-ounce jar on Amazon, which is approximately half the price of City Beauty’s cream.

Even so, customer reviews show us that many people are convinced it works, as the cream averages four stars on Amazon after more than 3,000 reviews.

Our View: Should You Try City Beauty’s Multi-Action Sculpting Cream?

From this report, we’ve learned that City Beauty’s Multi-Action Sculpting Cream is a product offered by a reputable beauty company that claims to erase your wrinkles and add moisture to your skin.

The company bases these claims around the proprietary ingredients within the cream, but we couldn’t determine anything specific in the ingredients list that stands out from other skincare products that might be responsible for these effects.

While customer reviews of the cream are hard to find off the product website, the reviews we read were glowingly positive about its skin rejuvenating effects.

However, the two other sculpting products we looked at had similarly positive reviews, and one (Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream) comes in at half the price.

If you’re on the fence about trying this cream, we think there’s enough reason to give it a try. So long as you keep the 60-day guarantee in mind, you should be able to get your money back if it’s not right for you.

    Scam

    • Texas,

    I ordered one jar. They billed for three by American Express. Kept saying it was sent. And was by my garage. Never was offered to send it free (for the inconvenience).

    Called me today. WE DON'T ACCEPT AMERICAN EXPRESS. American Express says they charged my card.

    Now you decide if you want to order from them!

    I really like this product. I’ve tried many different moisturizers that have ultimately given me pimples. Which means it’s plugging up my pores. I’ve been using this product for a couple of months. No pimples and my face feels smooth and hydrated.

    Good product

    I have only been using this product for a week but already in love with it. I have sensitive skin that makes me unable to use lots of products. I'm glad that Multi-Action Sculpting Cream is very calm and pleasant on my skin. I guess it's too short to tell if it does a good job on tightening up the sagging skin. I'll definitely continue to use it and happy to recommend it to my friends.

    Haven’t been using for 90 days yet but finding small results ie smoother skin around my eye area. Hoping my turkey neck will improve.

    Please also advise how I can order more as there seems to be no link via your emails, only able to find on advertising sites.

    Many thanks.

    I have been using the cream for a week and I feel it is already making a difference in my saggy neck and jowls.

    It goes on smoothly, drives mat and it seems to be working on my 63-year-old fat pocket under my chin.

    I’m excited to see how much more improvement I get!

    I have been using this for a few months. I really like it. It goes on nice and is not greasy. I like the lightness of the formula and have noticed some tightening of my skin. I won’t say it is a miracle cream, but I think it helps.

    I should have read the BBB reviews before purchasing this product. I encourage other people to do it too. Most other reviews you find online are fake or paid which makes it difficult to get honest real reviews.
