  • Ingredients show little sign of causing adverse reactions

Multi-Action Sculpting Cream Review: A Detailed Look

By Lydia Noyes

Updated on: May 26, 2020

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 our analysis.

Analysis of Ingredients

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—preferably areas with some sag like your neck, underarms, and under the eyes.

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.

These ingredients seem to offer promising benefits, but it’s important to note that few (if any) clinical studies are available that look at their effectiveness. This makes it difficult to weigh in on whether they will work as claimed.

Additional ingredients included in this cream are:

  • 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

These ingredients are frequent additions to skin creams and act as moisturizers, skin conditioning and thickening agents, emollients, solvents, fragrances, and preservatives.

That’s another way to say that there’s little in this product to differentiate it from the other options on the market today. We couldn’t track down any ingredients that offer specific benefits for firming and toning the skin beyond the proprietary ingredients previously mentioned.

In the same way, little stood out to us as potentially dangerous about this product. One exception might be acacia Senegal gum, which has a slight risk of organ system toxicity (but only when ingested).

Likewise, some people have skin sensitivities to phenoxyethanol. One study found that many people reacted poorly to its presence in ultrasound gels. It might be smart to try a small amount of this cream before committing to spreading it over a large area if you tend to react to skincare products.

Pricing and Money-Back Guarantee

The sculpting cream is sold exclusively on City Beauty’s website and costs $67 for a 1.69-oz container. Shipping is included with every order.

You can also sign up for the company’s auto-ship program, which offers significant savings per jar so long as you are willing to commit to a monthly delivery.

For example, one jar per month will cost $44, two are $78 ($39 each), and three are $105 ($35 each). You can stop these shipments at any time by contacting support.

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.

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.

Analysis of Customer Reviews

There are more than 350 verified reviews for the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream on our site, and they average 4.5 stars with a 94% recommendation rate. That’s an impressive track record; here’s a closer look at what’s the customers are saying:

Common Compliments:

  • Lead to significant reductions in wrinkles around the face
  • Has a refreshing scent, quickly soaked into the skin
  • Leaves skin feeling smoother, more hydrated
  • Helps users feel younger

Common Complaints:

  • Doesn’t lead to much improvement for severe wrinkles
  • Produces similar results to significantly cheaper creams
  • Some shoppers never received their order

Popular Alternatives

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 3.9 stars out of five after 75 reviews.

Pricewise, you’ll pay $95 for a 1.7-oz container, 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.

There’s also some evidence that it can repair collagen levels, but most clinical evidence is focused on its use in injections, not topical applications.

You’ll pay less for this product than the others, as it costs $21.63 per 1.7-ounce jar on Amazon, which is approximately one third the price of City Beauty’s cream.

Even so, customer reviews show us that many people are convinced it works, as the cream averages 4.5 stars on Amazon after almost 6,000 reviews.

The Bottom Line

The City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream comes from a reputable beauty company and claims to erase your wrinkles and add moisture to your skin.

The company bases these claims around the proprietary ingredients within the cream, but there isn’t much clinical evidence available to verify these claims.

Likewise, we couldn’t determine anything specific in the other ingredients that stand out from competing skincare products that might be responsible for these effects.

Even so, customer reviews here at HighYa give a glowing report and shows that the majority of users love the results they get from the cream. That’s good news from a pricing perspective, as the company offers significant discounts if you order numerous jars at a time through a subscription program.

However, the two other sculpting products we looked at had similarly positive reviews, and one (Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream) comes in at one third 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 used this Sculpting Cream for about 9 months and I saw no change whatsoever. I wanted to know if there was a special way to apply it, because I thought I was doing something wrong. But as usual, when you turn on a tutorial, you get some dizzy blonde that taps non-stop until almost the end. Well, I ain't got patience for people who love the sound of their own voice, say it as it is. Make a tutorial that shows you how to do the necessary, and I would maybe give it another try.

The magic Sculpting Cream is a dream come true, within a couple of weeks I’ve had great results!

By Linda J., Houston, TX, Verified Reviewer

The first time I ordered this, within 2-3 weeks I saw dramatic results! No kidding around, I was standing in front of my mirror and I told my daughter-in-law, "Wow, this stuff really works!" I have probably spent 1000s of dollars on cream and products that didn’t work. Yeah, they made my face soft, but I saw no true results. This cream really works! I immediately called in and set up a monthly subscription for it. I couldn’t be happier! Ladies, you need to try this magic Sculpting Cream, it gets rid of jowls quickly.

It really lifts the skin! You won’t be disappointed.

Length of Use: 6–12 months

Multi-Action Sculpting Cream delivers

By Judy R., Plantation, FL, Verified Reviewer

I’m completely satisfied with this cream from City Beauty. As with their plumping lip gloss, it delivers. My skin is tighter, firmer, and sculpted around the jawline and neck. It is lightweight and you only need to use a small amount. It spreads and absorbs quickly and well. I would happily recommend this product. In fact, I’m very happy with all of the City Beauty products that I use.

Length of Use: 1–2 years

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

Pros and Cons

I'm in love!

By Kathryn D., Blythewood, SC, Verified Reviewer

I'm very pleased with this product. First time I applied it to my face it felt like silk. I've been using the Sculpting cream for about 2 weeks now and can tell my tiny lines next to my eyes and lips are decreasing.

My neck had started sagging terribly. I can tell the Sculpting Cream is working like a charm there too.

I recommend this cream highly.

Multi-Action Sculpting Cream

By Linda B., California, Verified Reviewer

Delicious. Refreshing, smoothes and "soaks" into the dermis in no time. I was surprised this cream was so pleasing to use, morning and night, and I see the marionette lines are reduced with use - texture of my skin is luscious, too. At age 66 that is a surprise, but I have received compliments from a couple of strangers so it’s not only me that sees the benefit of this cream. Happy to leave a review - not usually but in this case yes, it deserves a shout out. Thanks!

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

So far so good!

By Cathy T., Springfield, IL, Verified Reviewer

I have only been using City Beauty Multi-Action Sculpting Cream for about 3 weeks. I took a picture before I started using it and am waiting to see the results. My face does feel smoother and softer.

Good product but still early

By Denise M., Indiana, Verified Reviewer

So far so good, I haven't used it long enough to see any firming results...but I have faith I will! I do like the way my skin feels when I use it. Seems a little goes a long way, use just a little too much and I have to brush off the little bits that roll up and don't absorb. Wrinkles seem to be less noticeable, I am 60 years old and don't expect miracles! So, all in all, I like the product but need more time to decide if I love it.

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

By Eleanor S., Morden, Manitoba, Canada, Verified Reviewer

Although I have only been using this cream for 2 days I can already see a difference because I have milia on my face and I haven't found anything that removes and smooths it out until I got your cream. Now I hope to see some of the wrinkles disappear, especially around the mouth.

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

Sculpting Cream

By Gillian C., New South Wales, Australia, Verified Reviewer

So far (approximately 2 weeks) the product appears to meet the advertised expectations and I am more than pleased. At the time of purchase I chose to order only 1 jar as in the past I have bought because of cost savings and discovered in the first jar, the promised result was not achieved on my face. I fully expect, based on results to now, to see further improvements in crepeyness and when I do I will become a regular user. I also appreciate your ongoing support and advice, very rare in this day and age.

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