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

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.

    Does not work

    I purchased this because of all the raving 5-star reviews.

    I’m wondering how they got these reviews?

    I’ve used morning and night for almost a month now with zero difference (other than it's a good moisturizer, but I already had a good one).

    Feel like I was scammed.

    Doesn’t work for everyone

    • Kennesaw, GA,

    While this product is a very nice moisturizer, after using this twice a day for over 7 months, I have not noticed any difference at all in my sagging jowls. I’m convinced that nothing you rub into your skin will be able to tighten it up because heredity is what you’re born with and there is no changing that (without surgery).

    I have used the Sculpting Cream for 30 days now and to my disappointment, there has been zero change to my skin. I have even asked friends if they notice any change at all and they agreed with me that they did not notice any changes. I don't want to be told to give it another month. I don't want to spend more money only to find that I'm throwing money to the wind.

    I started using this product for the first time this July 2019 and my face looks amazing. I just sent a photo to my sister because I am 59 years and I wanted to show her I have no wrinkles. I’m very grateful for this product.

    I have tried so many different products since my early 30s but I was looking for a product that would actually take the wrinkles away, and City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream does exactly that for me.

    When I was at work last week a person actually told me that I am much younger now than when I first started this job. I said thank you.

    My experience with City Beauty skincare

    • Massachusetts,
    • Sep 28, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I lost weight two years ago due to hospitalization for pneumonia. The weight loss was about 25 pounds. I noticed my skin started looking loose and crepey. I have been using City Beauty body balm and sculpting cream, and have not seen any change in the look of my skin. I guess I should have started using it as soon as I lost the weight. I was about 160 pounds and now weigh 135 pounds. If someone loses this much percentage of their body weight, they should start using the product right away. I guess I just waited too long.

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

    SCAM!

    • London, United Kingdom,
    • Sep 24, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Back in June, I made a big order of City Beauty products (AROUND £100), got charged AN ADDITIONAL £60 for UK customs - which I paid for and received. Then I canceled my subscription. Then I got charged a SECOND TIME FOR $78 for their products and never received anything! I emailed 15 times to date - this Vanessa G Customer Service Representative kept giving me the run-around saying she can't find any record, and then saying I have to pay for the customs charge. This has been going on for MONTHS. I'm furious - and will never ever recommend them.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very pleased with the feel and smell of the product. Makes my skin feel very soft. With only 2 weeks of use, there is no dramatic change but I took a before pic and will take one after a month of use. So far so good.

    Everyday I live in the City (Beauty) but I'm a county girl at heart!

    • Tampa, FL,
    • Sep 23, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I live in Tampa, Florida just outside of downtown in a cute little house with a surprisingly good size yard for being so close to the city. Five minutes away in any direction is any interstate to anywhere!

    With that being said, I am still lucky enough (in my opinion, it’s not shared with many, lol) to be blessed with many chickens, a pig, a squirrel, 2 rats, a dog, 2 cats, and a marmoset monkey!

    I have many fur babies I take care of both indoors and outdoors. The Florida sun and heat takes a toll on my face, neck (both front and back), chest, and hands for all those hours! I’m out there changing pine shavings and hay, giving them fresh water, cleaning out their cages, etc. Then I go indoors to take care of all those babies into the air conditioning which, well just an instant dry out flaky mess for my skin!

    This rollercoaster loop ride has been going on awhile and it’s taken a toll! I’m young and needed a cream that was multifunctional/multifaceted. I did my research and read many reviews which brought me to a video for City Beauty. It was very interesting, kept my attention (which is very difficult) by the end I knew this was the cream I had been searching for, it hit all the criteria I wanted and needed! I ordered it, not a second thought!

    I received the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream promptly and began using it right away, but you must read and understand the little instruction postcard included to ensure proper application of the cream! That is very important as well! I love this cream, it is very thick and covers well but it is NOT oily and leaves no residue at all. You only use a very small amount at each application so you won’t go threw the container fast either! The fragrance is wonderful and makeup is no problem to put overtop of this cream. A little plus, I like to do is put it in the fridge so it’s nice and cool when I apply it, it feels amazing on top of the fact that I know all of the great things it’s doing for my skin!

    All in all, I just cannot say I have any complaints about this wonderful sculpting cream, City Beauty the company, and I must say as well, the customer service is absolutely fantastic!

    So THANK YOU City Beauty! Every day I truly live in the City (Beauty) but I am a country girl at heart!

    I have only been using this cream for 5 days and I’ve already noticed a slight difference to my face. The cream is easy to apply, non-greasy, and you feel a little tightening of your skin as it absorbs. My jowl lines appear smaller each day I use this cream. Very happy with results so far.
