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

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.

    Just in a week the difference...

    • Ottawa, Canada,
    • Jun 21, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I just can’t believe the difference in my skin's firmness and how soft it already feels. What really worried me and when I actually saw my eyelids lifted...I was hoping but I couldn’t believe it was actually happening and so fast. Made me think there might be some chemicals I should be worried about...but I guess not. The crepe cream is even more surprising for me. I just hope I can afford the products, especially with customs being so expensive across the border.

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

    Smoother neck

    • Phoenix, AZ,
    • Jun 21, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been using Multi-Action Sculpting Cream for about 3 weeks, mostly on my neck and chest. This past week I have noticed a marked improvement in my skin. The wrinkles on my neck have begun to smooth out and more importantly, others have made the comment to me that my neck looks different, better than it used to.

    I use the product at night, before bed, mostly because it is heavier than my usual daytime moisturizer. I feel putting it on at night gives it the chance to work its magic, when cells rejuvenate (or so I have read).

    I look forward to seeing just how much better my skin is going to appear as time passes.

    So glad you asked. My first phone call to your support group was to get answers to a whole list of questions. Most of them were answered but the one that could not be was, "Are the natural ingredients harvested and sustainably and ethically?" I do not want to damage any other living being's habitat or abuse anyone's rights just to make myself look better. I was told a supervisor would call and answer that question...I never got a call.

    Secondly, the rep I was speaking to said that she was part of a company that also handled the customer service calls for other companies including dog food! Is this why all of my questions could not be answered? Perhaps there should be specialists for your product at the end of the line?

    Thirdly, I have be using the Sculpting Cream for a month now, and I am noticing some difference in the depth of my marionette lines, but there hasn't been any improvement with my turkey neck. That being said, I wasn't expecting a miracle as this was caused by a surgery in the late 90's to remove a tumor from my periodic gland. I ordered two containers as I was going to be in the States for a holiday and saved money on shipping, etc.

    I now see that there is a new gel being launched that might help a little better but I will be using up the Sculpting Cream before investing in another.

    City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream totally hydrates my face without feeling heavy or greasy.

    • Vicksburg, MI,

    I haven't noticed a decrease in wrinkles, however, they do seem less pronounced. I am most excited to see the wrinkles on my upper lip starting to be less noticeable. For me, that is the true test of the product. They didn't appear overnight, and I don't think they will go away without a fight, but with City Beauty's help, I think I'm winning the battle.

  • Love this cream!

    I was skeptical about the screen but decided to give it a shot. I’m really glad I did. It is by far the best cream I have ever used. The skin on my face has never looked better and I didn’t realize it first but I am now noticing that I am comfortable not putting makeup on because my skin tone is even and looks great without makeup. I am 49 years old and did not have really seriously sagging skin but I have been contemplating a facelift in the next couple of years. I definitely believe this cream has given me some additional years before I’ll need to do that.

    I'm now 58, at 55, I had a 65 lbs weight loss and suddenly my face fell. I'd lost all my young looking baby fat and I had wrinkled cheeks. I'd tried using retinol for 3 years with no benefit as far as I can tell. So I gave this Multi-Action Cream a try. I've been using it about 3 weeks now, so far my wrinkles haven't disappeared, but have slightly blurred or softened. Maybe I need more time?

    I have been using the product for three weeks. I can see some difference in my face but I still have deep wrinkles around my mouth that I was hoping would change for the better. The place I have seen the biggest difference is the inside of my upper arms. The skin seems less wrinkled.

    I love to use City Beauty's Multi-Action Sculpting Cream as part of my daily skincare routine. I am 72 years old but my facial skin looks a lot younger.

    I have tried and discarded so many products over the years but the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream is a keeper! I use it in the morning and at night. I like the continuous moisturized and more substantial feeling it gives my skin. I apply it to saggy areas with an upward motion and the lines around my lips seem to disappear, giving my skin a more lifted effect. I hope City Beauty comes up with more great skincare products like this one!

    I haven't been using the Sculpting Cream for very long (about 2 weeks) but I swear I see a difference already. The skin under my chin seems less saggy and the fine lines by my temple seem to have diminished. If this is what happens after 2 weeks, I can't wait to see long term results!

    I am 55 years old. I have been using the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream for over 1 year and will not go without it. It has virtually reversed the sagging neck and jawline areas. It is a vital part of my skincare regimen and I will use it for the rest of my life.
