Multi-Action Sculpting Cream by City Beauty Review

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

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.

    I have not used it for 60 days yet, however, I do love the feel of my skin the next morning. I’m excited for the 60-days-after look. One thing is the thickness of the cream, I’m used to a thinner consistency. So this will take some getting used to.

    I am always in great expectation when I use a new face cream but deep down I know nothing is going to change, I'm old, nothing other than a fairy godmother with a magic wand is going to change my appearance, but I live in hope.

    I haven't been using your product for very long so I can't say I have noticed any changes, I will say it's a pleasant cream to use and it sinks in very quickly, that's really all I can tell you at this stage.

    I am using the Multi-Action Cream for a few weeks now and it is working, just very slowly it seems. I have very light skin and not many wrinkles just deep lines around my mouth. I use it every morning and sometimes at night. It doesn't feel heavy or crease and I like the way it feels on my skin. I guess I just need to be patient and let it do its work.

    I’ve now been using Body Balm for 3 weeks.

    I find my skin is so much softer and at the end of the day, my skin is too very subtle.

    I will continue to use this product.

    I just ordered the Sculpting Cream and I’m excited to try it also.

  • Even a critical inspector of small millimeter inclusions says City Sculpting Cream Works...

    • Ogden, UT,
    • Dec 10, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I received my order just a few days before my 16-day cruise to the Panama Canal. Previously, I have only let my face be in wedding pictures prior to this cruise. I have tried several different companies' product lines, who are established, expensive, and highly rated. The other creams have had limited success after years of use. I have not been looking for a "quick fix" to my skincare as most are a scam at best and can do excessive damage at worse. I have been extremely careful with my choices of skincare and I have sensitive skin and therefore, cannot use many skincare products.

    City Beauty Sculpting Cream is all I have used for the 16 days of the cruise, other than soap and water, but my skin is healing up, and my face is much improved. Even in the cruise conditions with hot, dry, windy, dirty days on and off ship. I look and FEEL better.

    Even more impressive, my husband, who is a critical parts inspector of crucial jet airplane engine parts, where millimeters small inclusions can cause a fault or fatally damage an engine, also says my skin looks and feels better than it has for years.

    My sagging has almost completely disappeared and my wrinkles are filling out to plump healthy skin and skin tone. My sensitive skin is healing, I am looking and feeling so much better about my face. And I even bought an all-inclusive picture package for the duration of the cruise, we had 4 or more pictures a day taken.

    I cannot say how wonderful I feel.

    Thanks City Beauty.

  • A great product for my ongoing neck problem

    • New York,
    • Dec 9, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    About 5 years ago I noticed my face and chin were beginning to sag. I used a face roller which I thought was helping.

    When I applied my first Sculpting Cream, I knew I found something better. After a week I have noticed my face and neck look different! Both are tighter with decreased sagginess every day.

    I am so excited to see what further results will happen, especially for my 70-year-old skin.

    I agree it's pricey. I hope that I will be able to continue using this great product. Thank you City Beauty for the opportunity to try it.

    I use Perricone serums, and his Sub-plasma D Neck Firming product, and they work very well. But I've added this as a finishing touch, morning and night, to my face and neck and I can not believe the results. After 3-4 weeks of use, my face is even smoother and more beautiful than t was. In fact, I could see and feel the difference in two days. Most amazing of all, though, was the effects on my neck: Perricone's product worked better, or this cream smoothed my neck skin to near-perfection! I'm always told I have beautiful skin, but now it's even better. Nobody believes my age (67), and this is something I will never be without!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
