The word “splendor” means both bright and magnificent, two qualities women investigating the skincare product Splendyr likely desire for their aging skin.
Ads for Splendyr, an anti-aging facial mask, say its ingredients fight nearly every symptom of skin aging and promote skin health, so you remain young-looking and beautiful.
Splendyr’s purported abilities to reduce wrinkles caught my attention. Here’s what my research about Splendyr revealed about its anti-aging abilities.
The Company behind Splendyr
Splendyr is made by Clear Skin LLC. This skincare product company also makes Levela, an anti-wrinkle cream.
Clear Skin LLC has an F rating on BBB.org, the Better Business Bureau website. BBB gave Clear Skin LLC this rating because of almost 40 consumer complaints filed against the company since 2011.
Clear Skin LLC’s BBB rating makes me wonder about the quality of this company’s skincare products and its general business practices.
Splendyr’s Ingredient Profile
Splendyr mask uses both well-known and obscure ingredients. I examined some Splendyr ingredients from both sides of this spectrum to get an idea of its anti-aging potential.
Hyaluronic acid injections are considered a clinically proven anti-wrinkle treatment because they stimulate collagen production.  What about topical hyaluronic acid? Some research shows it has a less potent but still noticeable wrinkle-reducing effect. Lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid penetrates skin best.  The molecular weight of Splendyr’s hyaluronic acid is unknown, though.
Resveratrol is a plant chemical scientists study as a health-promoting antioxidant.  However, not much research exists examining resveratrol’s anti-aging skin benefits. When used on animals in a laboratory, topical resveratrol protected against sunburn.  But, more research is needed to show resveratrol reduces wrinkles or repairs photoaging damage.
Coenzyme Q10 acts as both an internal and external antioxidant and is found in nearly every cell.  As skin ages, its coenzyme Q10 depletes along with the energy-producing mitochondria. Applying coenzyme Q10 to skin repairs mitochondria and improves skin cell function. 
Silicone is a silky smooth substance which moisturizes skin and resists washing when skin gets wet.  One study showed silicone sheets heal and hide scar tissue.  Some people avoid silicone oil because it has a reputation for clogging pores or suffocating skin, but these claims aren’t substantiated by science. 
Glycerin moisturizing creams prevent skin from flaking and itching. Glycerin forms a layer on skin that stops water from escaping the surface but also draws water molecules to skin’s surface.  Skin also contains glycerin for signaling when skin cells should move through skin’s layers.  Consequently, glycerin is used as a treatment for many skin disorders. However, little is known about how glycerin affects wrinkles.
Beeswax comes in several forms but all have anti-inflammatory properties.  A few research studies also show beeswax treats some common skin infections. However, these studies call for further research.  And, I couldn’t find any research linking beeswax with reducing wrinkles or other skin aging signs.
Buying and Using Splendyr
If you want to buy Splendyr, you have to purchase it online. Although I couldn’t locate specific prices, most Splendyr retailers offer a sample jar for first-time buyers. Agreeing to get this sample jar allows you to try Splendyr for 15 days before being charged full price.
If you decide you like Splendyr during the trial period and don’t want to return it, expect to get additional Splendyr jars shipped to you regularly. That’s because everyone who requests a Splendyr sample is enrolled in an auto-ship program. You have 30 days to return Splendyr if you decide it didn’t work for you.
To use Splendyr, apply a thin layer of the mask after washing your face. Let it soak in for 10 minutes before washing it off. Use Splendyr 2 or 3 times a week for best results.
Splendyr Anti-Aging Mask: Buy or Bypass?
Splendyr’s ingredients all seem well-suited for promoting skin health and making sure it stays as young as possible. If I were judging Splendyr on ingredients alone, I’d have no trouble recommending it as an anti-aging treatment.
But, my excitement about Speldyr diminishes when I consider its company’s BBB rating and the mandatory auto-ship program. If you choose to buy Splendyr, make sure you use it quickly before the 30-day return policy expires just in case it doesn’t produce dramatic wrinkle reduction on your skin.
