Victoria Principal the star of the 80’s mega hit series Dallas, has created her own skincare and cosmetics line known as Principal Secret Reclaim®. The Reclaim® system is advertised as being an affordable way to keep your skin looking “healthy and beautiful,” due to its anti-aging technology that may help “fight the visible appearance of facial expression lines and wrinkles.” The Principal Secret Reclaim® System contains 4 products—Total Facial Cleanser, the EyeMazing® Eye Serum, Revolutionary Anti-Aging Cream and Age Breaker Benefit Boosters. It is important to note that this line has actually been scored poorly on some consumer-driven rating sites and blogs, in terms of effectiveness and manageability.

Beenigma - Premium All-In-One Bee Venom Face Cream
We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream. The Beenigma story is a new story with old origins. It began in Auckland, New Zealand where the Beenigma team undertook research into Apitherapy and specifically the use of Bee Venom as a means to fight the signs of aging. It has been discovered that topically applied Bee Venom directly nurtures cell regeneration, assists in collagen formation and even helps in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The more the Beenigma team learned, the more they were amazed by Bee Venom and its incredible rejuvenating effects. Read a Full review of Beenigma here.

Yuli: The Principle Secret Product line seemed to work for me right now. It fit my budget and my lifestyle. Unfortunately, it didn’t work very well. She must be using cheap ingredients in order to keep the cost down. It doesn’t fly. I will just have to save up and buy a more sophisticated cream for “mature skin”. p.s. love her still!

Toni: The Age Braker EyeFirmation Eye Serum did seem to increase the moisture around my eyes, but it didn’t seem to help with the bags, puffiness or wrinkles. So i am not all that impressed, i do like a good moisturizer for the eye area bcs sometimes my skin does get dry. But for my particular eyes, there are more noticable problems than dryness. The bags are major, and so are the crow’s feet, and this didn’t change that.

Janice: Well, let’s face it (heh heh), Victoria Principal is a beautiful woman. So her products work, right? No! Her not so big secret? She’s married to a plastic surgeon!!! Hmmmm. So, even though she was a star on “Dallas” about a hundred years ago, she looks fabulous! Does it take a genius to figure this out? The woman was thinking ahead…and once her husband got her looking really good, the obvious was to sell cosmetics to us unsuspecting hopefuls. So Reclaim? Reclaim what? Truth in advertising? I AM SO FED UP WITH ALL THIS!!!!!

Kelsea: I appreciate the effort that the reclaim line makes to not be condescending to women. I think the vitamins are a good idea for older ladies and I will think about buying these again but the skin care line is very weak and watery. not high quality. very home shopping channel.

Sara: The Age Braker Eye Serum from Principal Secret Reclaim sounded like the best eye serum, when I read about it. My eyes have gotten so puffy, and the dark circles make me look like I haven’t slept since 1982. I was really convinced that I’d see big results, if not in a day or two, at least in a week. All this did for me, though was give me false hope ;( I’d still like to find the perfect eye serum, my tired eyes are really depressing me.

Krissy: The Revoluationary Anti-aging Day Cream from Principal Secret felt nice, smelled nice, and blended seamlessly with my makeup. But there were two major problems. #1, the SPF 15 was not nearly strong enough, i ended up being burned to a crisp after only 2 hours out in the sun. Also the Oiliness of this cream caused a cluster of whiteheads near my mouth. ick. Not really worth it.

Rosie: One word for the Reclaim Enzyme Mask & Peel – OUCH!

Caro: I know, I know Argireline is a good ingredient. But I think it has to be combined with other stuff ( I don’t know what I am not a dermatologist) in order to be most effective. I will try another cream, not Principal Secret.

Amy_jl: The Reclaim Antiaging Cream really didn’t feel any different than the Rachel Perry colllagen cream I was using before, I was hoping for something..a bit richer in texture, but it was just so-so.

cecily: I see that Principal Secret has a “Skin Care Club.” Do any of you belong to this? and is it worth it?

Meredith: The Eyefirmation Eye Serum from “Principal Secret” is not very good I’m afraid. I really wanted to like it and I had to say something bad but I can’t lie: It didn’t help my droopy eyelids or crows feet one bit.

Noelle: Two months ago I turned 52, and I’m TIRED. I have no energy lately, when I read all about how much the Prinicipal Secret Reclaim Anti-Aging Day Cream would do for my skin, I got excited. A “surge” of moisture & “accelerated” exfoliation, the ad said. I thought great, maybe my skin can get moving quicker than the rest of me. Its not really doing much though. Maybe its my metabolism? I don’t know, I wish I could find something to pump me my up, skin, body, mind, anything.

dawna: The EYe Saver Gel from Princapal SEcret seemed to leave a sticky residue around my eye area. This didn’t look so good combined with makeup and all. I also noticed some stinging and eye watering, which caused some inflammation. Aside from these reactions i didn’t see any significant difference, which was disappointing. Overall, i don’t think its right for me.

JAR_1978: SO YOUR SUPPOSED TO USE ALL THE PRODUCTS IN THE LINE IN ODER TO SEE A REAL DIFFERENCE?

sanditaki: the total facial cleanser is really nice, i like that it has toner in it, bcs i hate waiting for my toner to absorb before putting moisturizer on. its a lot easier now & my skin is just as clean.

Ms.Diva: The Time Release Tinted Moisture Plus was a very strange product. I liked the idea of having an alternative to heavy foundation, esp. on humid days. But rather than provide a light dewy texture, this caused an unattractive, oily shine. This was very strange for me bcs I have very dry skin naturally. The color (i got sheer rose) was nice and blended well, but the shiny-face thing was just not what i was going for.

Tiffany: About a month ago I started using the Principal Secret Total Facial Cleanser. it’s real different then anything I’ve used in the passed and so I thought it was good, you know what I mean? But instead of making my skin look yoothful in a good way it has caused acne zits and redness that make me feel less confident that I did before. I have no respect for this company because I think they must know that some people with have this reaction and they don’t warn you or nothing.

Karyn: This Age Braker Line Serum from Reclaim is supposed to be firming my skin as well as protecting it, but I really can’t tell if its doing much of anything. Its not firmer, not yet, but I guess it could be safer from free radicals. Is there a way to tell though if this works.

Lourdes: the principal secret is that these products are not going to do anything! what a trick they have played on the public. I may as well have used baking soda and salt on my skin. The Day/Night cream is far too heavy for day in my opinion. I see no improvement in my skin.

Katie: Well, i do have to say that the Skin Refining Serum from Principal Secret did go a long way. All i needed was a little bit to cover my whole face, which is unusual for a serum. So that was nice, and i also liked that it didn’t cause any breakouts. However, it also didn’t seem to reduce my wrinkles at all. That was a very big disappointment since i;d heard such great stuff about this line. But it really didn’t change anything.

donna simmons: now, i was a little skeptical about trying these antiaging products from prinicipal secret, but the reclaim introductory kit was so cheap! i thought, what can it hurt, only thirty bucks. well, i’m gonna tell you, there’s a reason they’re so affordable, they just are no better than anything i’ve picked up at walgreens. cheap. not harmful, but no reason to ever buy them.

Jeanine: I don’t know about this Reclaim stuff. It’s pretty oily an feels heavy on my skin. I don’t even have sensitive skin and this stuff seems to be causing an irritation. Nothing too bad, I mean, I’ll continue to use it for now until something better comes along.

Babs_etc.: The Rosemary Mint Hydrating Mask for Face and Body smells just lovely….you can’t go wrong with rosemary and mint. But i do have to question the fact that this is called a “mask.” for me, it acted more like an exfoliator or a scrub. Seriously, how do you use a “mask” on your body?? Anyway, it wasn’t overly moisturizing either, despite the name. I thought this was a rather confusing product and i’m not so sure about the results. The smell is awesome though.

Helene: For some reason I decided to go with the 8 piece Principal Secret kit, it was not a bad deal. I got more products than I normally would buy/use, its always fun to experiment, but I wouldn’t buy these again. Anyway, I was just looking on here to see if anyone knew of anything better for wrinkles, but I saw Noelle’s post, and want to let her, and anyone know that if you’re feeling lethargic, need to lose weight, Nuphedrine has an excellent program. It’s gotten me in shape, eating healthier & feeling just more energetic overall.

andrea: This is the first time I ordered a product like this from Principal Secret and I have have mixed feelings about how it is working. Well, for one to be perfectly honest with you I don’t think that this cream is better than the “drugstore” brands I usually by. And it was more expensive. And harder to get. And my husband yelled at me for spending the money on myself. But he also told me I looked pretty today for the first time in 211 days. It’s a start.

lazysusan9367: is this the victoria of victorias secret?

leah: The Advanced Pore Minimizing Detox Mask from Principal secret was a nice clay mask, worked just fine, but you really pay a lot for just a small tube of product. There was really nothing special about this above and beyond your typical clay mask.

Gretchen: Most eye creams are very irritating to my eyes, and the Principal Secret Reclaim Eyemazing Serum has actually been tolerable so far. No itchiness, no redness, so thats a start! I have been using for 3 weeks, my skin is not yet glowing or free of lines but, at least i can use this.

Britony: The Age Braker Enzyme Mask and Peel in the Reclaim like from Victoria Principal is a very deceving product. I don’t think it made me look younger and I don’t think it made it softer either, It will probably be more difficult to try and get my money back so I guess I have to swallow the loss and wate untill next month to buy another product, B

Sue: Yah, are the saying it’s just papaya in the Reclaim cream because I could just get that from the supermarket and mix in my my processor. Ohh, that would be good with yogurt. As a mask or as dessert!

michelle G.: Hi, Andrea, i completely agree with you about Principal Secret not being any better than typical “drugstore brands.” These are not bad products by any means (altho the day/night cream did break out my skin) but they are just not so great that the prices are justified. Nothing special, i would have to say.

MrsA: Just recently began noticing how flaky my skin is, and dull. The Reclaim Exfoliator Scrub is nice, I like the scent & its not too harsh, like some, although my skin is stil pretty dry & i don;t look any younger. I am not convinced the Principal Secret creams will be most effective for wrinkles, does anyone have any suggestions for what does work?

Lisa: I wanted to enjoy a spa like treatment at home so I ordered Principal Secret cream and it was nothing like being at a spa. The cream is sticky and thick and heavy and gross. I won’t be wasting any more of our money on such things anymore.

Angie: The anti-aging cream with Argeline (sp?) was pretty good I thought. I look a little perked up if not exactly younger. I’ll keep trying Principal Secret line.

debby mcConnell: I recently tried the Skin Refining Thermal Treatment from Princpal secret. This stuff is supposed to be a “self heating” microdermabrasion alternative. It does warm up, i will give it that…but it seems to have a very harsh ingredient in it, that really caused a burning, itching feeling in the area of my lips. I also tend to have a ruddy complexion (not rosacea just red skin) and this product seemed to leave my skin extra red for about 5 days after i used this. I was not happy with that outcome. overall, in terms of improving my skin tone, i saw minimal resutls. I think this is just not for those with sensitive skin.

LeAnn: My skin is super duper sensitive, and have been terrified of micromdermabrasion, The Principal Secret Reclaim Skin Refinining Thermal Treatment sounded like a decent alternative, it was said to be gentle, and it is. My only complaint was that it seemed inexpensive but only lasted for 2 weeks. Ive never had a product run out that quickly, so i am not sure if I would buy again but I would look for something similar at least.

Gwendolyn: I’m old and my skin seems dry. I have been in the sun at least once and I have smiled on a few occasions. I guess Principal Secret must be right for me! I had better run out and get more because the cleanser wasn’t at all disgusting. hurray.

lorax#2: The 4-pc. discovery kIt from Principal Secret was not one of my better QVC purchases. It was nice enough cleanser for cleaning out the pores, however, i found the day/night cream just sat there without sinking in. I also feel that i may have had a slight allergic reaction in the eye area. I couldn’t continue with it really.

Natalie: Lately I’ve been looking for strong sunscreens, it seems like I burn every time I step outdoors, so I decided to try the Principal Secret Reclaim sunscreen w/ SPF 30, for my body & face. Well the first time I used it I burned after just 90 minutes in the sun. I thought maybe I didn’t give it time to absorb, so the next day I applied it an hour before going outdoors. Still burnt! And it has a fruity smell, I don’t like this, it was overpriced & not good at all.

whoshotJR?: I have Loved the work of Victoria Principal since she was on Dallas. I think she is still today a sexy, smart and talented woman. She projects confidence. And that is one thing I am lacking. As well as good bone structure and lots of money. But I liked the image her company presents with it’s Principal Secrets and Reclaim lines of skin care. I really wanted it and I saved up for months and bought the whole kit and kaboodle. I have been using the creams ans serums for weeks and am so sad to report that I see no real change in my skin. It’s maybe a little softer, but also greasy. so I wouldn’t say that’s entirely a plus. I am afraid I look no more like her than I did when I started (which I know is a long shot, but still) I still think Victoria is marvelous and if she sells other types of products like jewelry or shoes I might buy them (not clothes though because I am 30 pounds overweight) sigh.

Gabbi: I usually am fairly pleased with the Principal Secret Reclaim line, but Calming and Toning Mask was a bit of a disaster. Rather than soothing, it felt immetiately irritating, like glass being rubbed into my skin. I left it on as long as suggested even tho it was killing me. My face was left red afterward which is very wierd bcs my skin NEVER turns red i never even get a sunburned. I am not about to go out of my way to turn my skin red.

Keri: Bought the Reclaim Radiance Youth Wand from QVC, very good concealer. Much better than the Clarins one Id used before because it blends well to make my skin look a little smoother.

Molly: I read that Victoria Principal recently got cleaned out to the tune of $25MILLION in her divorce settlement….this will make a lady desperate for money…she got some of mine, unfortunately. Wish i could RECLAIM it, cuz this junk didn’t work.

Autum: I wish I had one good thing to say about Principal Secrets but unfortunately I don’t. I don’t like how the jars and bottles look, I don’t like the texture of the creams and I don’t like what the products do for my skin. I hate to be negative, really, but everyone her is always so honest. I know I can count on this site for that. what should we be looking for anyway so we don;t make the same mistakes in purchasing over and over as I am wont to do…

mikencari: really have been impressed with the reclaim moisturizer, as long as i don’t use too much. i made the mistake of applying too much when i first got it & it felt really greasy. but i only use a small dab now, which is good bcs it lasts longer that way.

jayne: The PS Advanced Gentle Enzyme Treatment does an ok job of sloughing off dead skin, and it rinses off well with minimal redness. My issue is the smell, it is really quite foul. I know that sounds wimpy of me but it wasn’t that great that i am willing to put up with that smell.

Celine: Well I have always wondered just how useful it is to spread antioxidants all over your face, I mean, is that realy the best way to go. Probably helps some, but I never could tell. Those vitamins I got when purchased the Prinicipal Secret Reclaim kit are the best idea, I am pretty sure they’re keeping my whole body healthy.

Lillian: well, I am giving Principal Secret a mild thumbs down because I really believed the claims about getting younger-looking skin. Look, it isn’t really as terrible as some people may claim, The cleanser is actually pretty refreshing they just should call it what it is: A mid priced beauty line for middle aged women. not a miracle. not a life changing event. sorry Vicky, it’s time to come clean.

laddie: right now i can’t afford to go to the salon for anything, i can’t even really spent the money for the gas to get there so i gotta shop from home for products, it makes most sense. the reclaim enzyme peel mask is fine for deep cleaning, i am treating myself for low cost, until i can go back to he salon for some real pamperig.

nancy: Okay, it’s obvious to me that these ingredients are not excellent. I think Reclaim with Argireline is a fine moisturizer but it isn’t really acting on my wrinkles as much as I would like. I don’t want Botox or anything poisonous like that but if there is a cream that really works what does it have in it??! Please tell me! I will continue to use what I have but would not buy again.

Keila: The Advanced Continuous lift comes in very weird packaging, like an eyedropper or something, and it was not very effective that i could see. if this is what all Principal Secret products are like I’m not too interested.

Regina: Its def good that Principal Secret uses Argireline, I kept reading about it, how great it is for older skin & wrinkles, there is a lot of proof out there. But I didn’t get the results I was seeking with Reclaim, I figured there had to be other formulas with Argireline, and I began searching. Just received a trial of Bellaplex (http://www.bellaplex.com/magazine ) which also has it & I can’t say for sure, but I think my skin looks firmer already, in just 4 days. I think this one may be better than Reclaim was…

Kat: This may not be what I use for the rest of my life but it’s light good for summer and therefore I will continue to use it.

Rita: The Age Braker Line Breaker Serum from Principal Secrets is way too sticky.

Taline: Principal Secrets products are okay, I didn’t expect much, I did buy them from QVC so I knew it wouldn’t be super amazing. I had no reactions, they were all fine for the price, better than Olay.

Mishka: HAs Victoria Principal really had work done?? That puts a whole new light on these products for me, I was considering trying one more month of the Reclaim moisturizer to see if it would come through & erase those lines, but maybe not..

Alynn: I prefer substance to celebrity and I chose Reclaim not because of the figurehead but the formula, I thought the Argireline line was going to smooth wrinkles and promote elastin qualities in my 45 year old skin. So far, I have experienced nothing so tremendous and feel foolish for being suckered in like everyone else. I just wish I could find something that worked for once.

Joanne: The Age Braker Eye Serum worked pretty good for me. NOt sure what everyone is complaing about. Thumb up.

Gina: Eye Firmation Serum working wonders these first days! Hooray for Reclaim! it works for sure!

becky weber: the reclaim moisturizer stings when i apply it. it goes away after a minute or so and does not leave any irritation but should i be concerned about this? i have never had a moisturizer hurt before this.

Rita: I figured i would try the Reclaim moisturizer for my severe dry skin and rosacea. Well i have tried a lot of different skin care products for these issues and most of them jhust haven’t worked,but so far none except this line caused actual PAIN when i applied it! Both the moisturizer AND the cleanser stung my skin the minute i rubbed them in. And the cleanser especially left patches of scaly redness and flaking. It was quite upsetting to me. I am just going back to my old standby.

Cybill: Who is this Victoria Principal anyway, I never heard of her. I just bought the Reclaim products because they were pretty affordable, 4 products for thirty bucks or something, seemed like a good deal. Probably should’ve done some homework first, bcs they didnt’ leave my face feeling fresh or smooth or wrinkle free. I’ll check here next time.

evelyn: i heard that Victoria Principal has had a TON of plastic surg. on her face. So why should we trust these products? SHE clearly doesn’t see to?

Addie: yes, its affordable but if it doesn’t work how good is that? I mean I could just wash my face with soap and have the same results. You need to spend more it is apparent and correctly. It’s about getting the right formula. I just don’t know what I need. That’s why I trust in you girls!

ghiagirl00: the reclaim night cream from principal secret made my eyes ithcy & swollen, def not recommend to anyone, thumb down.

Mindy: LADIES: it is NOT normal when the Reclaim Moisturizer burns and stings! For me, this led to itching, peeling and redness. Its obviously a harsh product and i don’t know who exactly it works for, but not me!

Pamela: I don’t know the first thing about eye creams that is why I trusted in an expert like Victoria Principl – I figured all those years of being an actress she would have come across the best ingredients and things. Boy, was I wrong! There is nothing special about the Reclaim cream!

Dawn: Well I was so intrigued by these vitamins I got with my Principal Secret order, I never thought about how vitamins could clear my skin. I was searching on this site for other ideas it got me thinking, and foudn these foot patches http://www.cleasepatch.com/beforeandafter I thought yeah right, but what the hell ordered and you know, they’ve helped to clear my skin a lot. Lot less black heads for sure. I think every little bit helps for healthier skin especially from the inside out.

hallie: Yeah, i trusted Principal at first too, till i read that she’s had everything done under the sun. Then i figured i knew what her REAL secret was.

Christene: I must be part of the 30% that didn’t see any results in their study they conducted. Reclaim with Argeline worked liked…Ponds or something. Not a high end cream.

holly: Principal Secret from Victoria Principal is a line of skin care products that are low cost but probably won’t do much to alter your skin for the better. that’s my best sound bite. happy friday :)

Sabrina: If you look closely at her face, I think its actually pretty obvious that Victoria Principal has had work done. A lot of it. These products are just a cover & a money maker. Old celebrities have to keep their names somehow, I mean look at Suzanne Somers. She’s got her hands in everything. These people are just faces & names, no quality or innovation here. I am a little upset with myself for ordering the Reclaim Eye Serum, I was trying to be optimistic, but it was not a worthwhile product.

nora: I had hoped that the Reclaim Eye Serum would help with my dark circles under my eyes. But it didn’t. I wish i knew what would work for that problem, i feel like i have literally tried everything.

TLG: I have to say that after using reclaim, my skin is much firmer than what it used to be. It takes time to see results. People need to be patient. It is not overnight. But when I see my skin looking firmer, smoother and even tighter than what it used to be, OH YES I will continue to use it. A little goes a long way. If you use too much, you will look greasy. This product is powerful and a little dab will work. For the people who want it overnight, then do yourself a favor, and receive plastic surgery. Thanks Victoria for making it affordable for me and for a product that works.

PB: Absolutely terrific product. I’ve used it for 20 years. I now use the Reclaim line and love it. Victoria does her own research because she uses it herself. She stays up to date with all the new technology. The new Reclaim Eyefirmation is great. I can tell a big difference in my eye area. The Reclaim Face Serum is also great. I am 50 years old and people are always surprised at that. They think I am mid 30s and that makes me feel good because I have a 13 year old son and I don’t want him feeling like he’s got an old moma compared to his friends mothers. As a matter of fact he’s told me on a couple of occassions that I look younger than so and sos mother and they are 13 years younger than me. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not conceited but ladies we all know it makes us feel good to look good. If it didn’t we wouldn’t be viewing this website would we. And by the way, Victoria does include Matrixyl 3000 in some of her products. Anyway, I can’t say enough about her products and they work great for me and I will continue using them until I quit seeing results.

Lori: I have been using most of the products in the Reclaim line. I have to say I was quite surprised after reading all of the negative reviews. I did notice a difference in my overall complexion after a few weeks. The price in comparison to other product lines are very affordable. I would suggest contacting the company if you experience problems with a product. They will be more than happy to help you. It sounds like some of the reviewers were not using the products correctly or using the correct amounts. The serums are a bit sticky upon application, but quickly dries. You are using too much of the product if it remains sticky after a minute. The reviewer that stated the Thermal Treatment only lasted two weeks used much too much product per application. This product should last at least two – three months. I highly recommend the Reclaim line.

Angela: I’m sorry that the other posters have had such negative experiences with the Reclaim line of skin products. I actually like them – the cleanser is not drying to my skin, the day cream (if applied lightly) makes my skin glow, the serum made the pores on my cheeks shrink and I’ve been using the eye stuff – don’t really see a difference there, but I don’t have many wrinkles around my eyes. I am 53 years old and never get taken for my age – that’s good genes, not Reclaim by any stretch of the imagination. What I have to “complain” about is their customer service (or that of Guthy Renker’s) is for the birds. While belonging to the skin care club thing, my credit card expired and I got a new one. I didn’t think to call or write them to change the expiration date of the new card. They wrote all kinds of ridiculous letters demanding payment or a new credit card and as many times as I tried to call customer service to update the expiration date (it was the same number on the card), I never got through. Finally, I got a letter from a collection agency! I was pretty steamed about that. I called and gave the woman the updated information and told her that I have proof of all the times I had tried to call and even fax and email customer service. She seemed not to care really and told me that if I called her in two days, I could get a special number allowing (get that one) me to order again from Victoria Principal. I am almost out of cleanser and day cream and am “jonesin’” for more but don’t want to join that club thing again and deal with the morons in customer service there. I even dropped an email at the website pleading for someone in customer service to call me in order to set the pot right. I wish you ladies luck with your purchases. As always, caveat emptor – let the buyer beware. I liked this product overall – it was the customer service that was lacking. Thanks for letting me have my say.

sarah: Hi Angela, I can soooo sympathize with your experience, i had a very similar interaction with the rude, opportunistic customer service people at Guthy Renker. My experience involved being charged *repeatedly * for items that i did not request. Anyway, all i really wanted was the Principal Secret Day Cream, which was just a nice light moisturizer. But i was not going to patronize this company again, just on principle, no pun intended. Then i read a review of Bellaplex on here, & saw you could get a free trial, and i went for it. Well it was like night and day. The customer service people were actually polite, non aggressive, and willing to answer my questions. And i haven’t had a problem with payments or shipments or anything. This stuff is a great anti-aging cream, way better than Principal Secret. So in a way, I’m grateful for Guthy Renker’s rudeness, because otherwise i might never have found my H.G., Bellaplex!

Debby Ryan: I feel bad a lot of people don’t like Victoria Principa. I’m 49 and have been with her since 34. Immediately got comments and could see a major difference to the positive side with her beginners line.. I love certain products in the advance. I definitley have ones I prefer over others. But have left her and went elsewhere trying all kinds of other stuff, and always come back to her knowing she does the most for me. She says if you want to try something else, do so but it should show in two days atleast an improvement. I love her Reclaim line and Advanced I keep adding more products. Youthful mask is excellent 4 in one cleanser love all of her serems.. Espeially she had one called intesive serum. Can’t find it in her line anymore and it was really goood. But overall, I think she is one of the best lines I’ve seen, beings I’ve tried Estee Lauder and everything, for me she’s the only one that I’ve seen so much more an improvement. Also have tried Cindy Crawford since and saw a great difference with her stuff.. That might also been some of the rest of you people’s ticket to try. She makes hers with an orgainc melon that’s very rare. It does make my face glow.. So I go between the two… If I try anything new, I’ll let everybody know. But Cindy Crawford is also really good.. D.R.

Anonymous: I love Reclaim products. My favorite is the Cleanser & Mask, it’s gentle yet it clean everything on your face even eye shadow. The price fit my budget. I notice the line around my eyes is almost disappear. I’m almost 40 yrs old, 125 lbs. My doctor tell me I look 27.

deanne: The Reclaim Eye Serum was the biggest waste AND it caused major irritation around my eyes, and caused redness and flakiness. I was really hoping that this would help with my dark undereye circles but it did NOTHING for that or for my crow’s feet. The peeling and redness really just drew attention to all of that, adn taht didn’t help. Victoria Secret is not a trustworthy line of products.

Diane: Ladies,From the tone of your comments it sounds to me like you haven’t given Reclaim enough time to work.I am religeous about my skin care regiment.I have used this product and this alone for two years.I am 58, and I have been blessed with good skin, but my skin is in better shape now than it was two years ago! At this rateI know that I can keep those wrinkles at bay for much longer! I was a Manager for Lancome’ for years, and I can tell you that this product if used consistantly works better, and at a fraction of the cost.Slather this product ladies and watch it do miracles!

Jenn: Principle Secret Reclaim is not the sort of product I usually buy but I was feeling desperate and bored one afternoon and thought perhaps I had been going in the wrong direction. I honestly can’t even say it was a decent moisturizer, much less a skin rejuvenating treatment. It was runny and thin and left a film on my skin. I should have trusted my instincts and continued along the lines of great ingredients in a pretty understated package. I am just not an as seen on tv type of girl. sorry!

Kim: I have been using the Reclaim line for at least a year now and I love the way my skin looks. My friend has commented on how good my skin looks. My skin is smoother and the lines around my eyes are so much less and the Reclaim line has also helped even out my skin tone. I just love the products. I do have to say that it took about 3-6 months before I started noticing major improvements in my skin, but that is the way it is with any products you use, no matter the cost, you have to give the products time.

Deb: purchased the *Reclaim Eyefirmation* by Principal Secret (Guthy Renker, slimebags) and subsequently found that guthy renker charged my Credit Card REPEATEDLY for items i had not ordered or requested!! Repeated attemps at a refund were IGNORED!! I think thisnis a TERRIBLE line of products and it is unfortunate that Victoria has lent her name to Guthy Renker, an unethical manufacturer of shoddy prodcuts that they have to TRICK you into buying. PS the Reclaim eyefirmation didn’t do anything.

Linda Ll: I have been using the product for a month. it makes my skin feel good, but does not help the wrinkles, especially on the forehead, does not shrink pores like I would like. I have run out of the eye serum, and low on the facial serum. will continue to use until something better comes along

Pam: Hey, I tried may products, and this too for 30 days. Stopped using for 39 days, and couldn’t wait to start up again. Keep using for 30 days and see the relaxing of lines, and the glow of your skin. It does work and I’ve ordered more for the 3rd time. I’m older, work 50 or more hours per week…with the public. I need to look as good as I can, and I look healthy with this product.

sonya: The Principle Secret Reclaim Day/nIght cream was very luxurious and felt wonderful going on, smelled great and was very hydrating (sometimes too hydrating – occasional zits). The problem was, it really didn’t smooth out any of the wrinkles or improve the age spots near my jaw, or even just make my skin look a little tighter or give it a glow. It did almost nothing to improve my face, actually. just becuase it felt nice doesn’t mean i will buy it agian. in fact, i have to give it a thumb down.

Toni: My bank account was charged after two months for products I did not re-order. I still have not completed the beginners pack, and still unsure if this product is worth a second purchase. I asked upon the initial purchase if I would be charged repeatedly without a request for more products and was told “No”. However a package of reclaim products came to my home, and a $46.00 charged was posted to my account. I have not opened the second package, I don’t know what is in there, and like some of the other comments, I find that some of the products I will not continue to use. I am undecided on the rest. This is just another way for these thieves to access your information and take money from you without a prior authorization. I thought by ordering over the phone from a TV advertisement I would be safe from these unethical means of getting money. I find that this was no exception. My account was charged, and I have incurred a $33.00 overdraft charge on that account. Ladies…. Beware, nowadays once you give them any information that accesses you money. It seems to me they can use it over and over again. I have had to close my debit cards 4 times this year alone because of this type of buisness. And in some cases was not able to recover my money. – principal secret reclaim

christine van arsdale: I tried this product for a year and I found it to be wonderful. Once again I am 44 without a wrinkle on my face. I love this product !! One must stay on top of their facial cleansing and moisturizing in order to see results ! My face always feels so refreshed and pampered afterwards.

Tina Willis: I used Reclaim Bright & Even Re-Texturizer within 12 hours of Buffing Exfoliant and my neck was burned. Now my skin is permanently damaged. I have sent two letters to Principal Secret and returned the merchandize, and have not recived and answer or a refund for the products, I would not recommend any of the products.

Bernie madisib: I think it is a great product. Yes, I have started to see results and I love the age-breaker serum and the facial mask. I have tried a lot of stuff this is one that stands out!!

Barbara: I’ve been using the Reclaim products for about 3 weeks and just love them. I love the cleanser and day/night creams. Haven’t used of all of other items as yet. Think these products are sold at a very good cost. I am 57 years old and no problems with wrinkles and lines as yet. The products make my face feel very soft. I also purchased the Reclaim liquid makeup and pressed power which I like very efficient and friendly and I’ve been very pleased with how promptly I receive my orders. I guess for those that possibly aren’t having that good of luck with the products – “you get what you pay for”. At prices like these I don’t know that they can/will help with wrinkles and lines. But will any product, no matter what price, take these problems entirely away? Don’t think so once the damage is done.

Cheryle: About three weeks into using the Reclaim line, I began experiencing intense itchi*g around my eyes any my cheekbones became r*d and inflam*d. My cheeks also h*rt when I touched them. I remembered having these same symptoms several years ago when I used a toner with green tea as an ingredient. I immediately went down the list of ingredients of each piece and found green tea in both the eye braker serum and the facial serum. That last time it took almost a month before my face healed. I stopped using those two items about three weeks ago and my face has begun to heal. I still experience an occasional itch around my eyes but it too is subsiding. I went back to using my Neutrogena with Retinol and won’t change again. I am 63 but look younger – good genes from my mother and grandmother.

Kim: I canceled the Principal secret line in April and guess what I received a box today (9-10-10)and was charged without my approval. When someone says they no longer want the product they shouldn’t be sneaky and send it to you!!!! When I called and complained they wanted to sell it to me for a discounted price. NO THANKS. They won’t refund all my money I have to pay for the shipping charges which is ten dollars. No big amount I know, but I have to also pay to have it sent back to them. It’s just the ‘Principal’ of the matter that really ticks me off! So beware it you decided to order this product. They tired to tell me that I put my order on hold for a few months which I didn’t, they wanted me to, but I told them if I decided to ever order from them again I would let them know. So much for them listening to their customers, I can see what is more important to them and that’s the all mighty dollar!

Courtney: If you have ever put an egg white on your face and let it dry, this is the effect I am getting after using the product for 4 days. My skin feels dryer and has many more fine lines in new places than it did before using it. Going to stick with it for a couple more days and if things don’t improve, I’m sending it back.

Anonymous: Amy: I started with Victoria’s line years at least 10 years ago. I started with the Advanced line system but as Reclaim took off, it was harder to find the Advanced line, which is a shame because I would love to start my 13 year old daughter on it. I have been using reclaim for the past 5 years or so. I have never been more pleased with any products. The moisturizers have worked the best for me, day and night versions. I have struggled finding the right moisturizer for years and am completely content with this line. I love the face wash and enzyme mask as well. I recently tried the age breaker eyefirmation serum and wow!!! did it help brighten under my eyes. I am adding to my regime the eye creme as well and I worry at my age I haven’t paid enough attention to moisturizing under my eyes. I will say that I am confused of the difference between the eyefirmation and the eyeMazing product…not sure of the difference. I have pretty sensitive skin and have never had a problem with this line. Because of the inconvenience of mail order, I’ve tried others and always go back, and am so happy when I do. Wouldn’t it be great Ulta cosmetics carried the line?!?!?!


Principal Secret Reclaim®

Some of us may remember Victoria Principal from the TV show Dallas, a huge hit from 1978 to 1987. However, more recently she has gained notoriety for her line of cosmetic and skincare products known as Principal Secret Reclaim®. It seems that many actresses have cosmetic lines these days. While notoriety may make a line extremely popular, it is no guarantee of its ability to produce results. This is especially true in the anti-aging arena, where it takes a carefully crafted formula to produce the most effective and long lasting results.

The Reclaim® system is advertised as being an affordable way to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful, due to its anti-aging technology that may help “fight the visible appearance of facial expression lines and wrinkles.” However, while this line has been popular, some consumers may have scored it poorly on a number of consumer-driven rating sites in terms of results. We will definitely take a look at this information, as well as a wide variety of other data, to ascertain this product lines true capabilities.

 Products at a Glance
The Principal Secret Reclaim® System is said to contain 4 products: Total Facial Cleanser, the EyeMazing® Eye Serum, Revolutionary Anti-Aging Cream and Age Breaker Benefit Boosters.

 Ingredients in Focus
For the most part, the ingredients used in The Reclaim® System may not be disclosed, but this site does heavily promote their use of Argireline®, which is a potent anti-aging element. It is a collection of Amino Acids that have been shown to have an innate ability to reduce the depth of facial wrinkles, when used together. In one recent study, it was shown to be particularly effective when used on lines caused by the contractions of facial muscles—especially those around the eyes.

Also, some experts have compared it with Botox®, as it has been shown to be able to relax facial muscles, which makes it particularly attractive to individuals. However, it lacks Botox®’s skin numbing and paralyzing side effects. Unlike other elements it has also been shown to be able to stop wrinkles and facial lines before they start, which is a great asset. Argireline® has been shown to be especially effective when used in a 10% concentration, and we were glad to see that Reclaim® has included this amount in many of the products, including the EyeMazing® Eye Serum.

 Lifestyle
That said, we were disturbed that this developer may not have disclosed any of the other ingredients used in this formula. While we believe that Argireline® is a very good anti-aging element, we prefer to see it teamed up with other equally as effective elements to offer consumers a multilevel approach to skincare and anti-aging. Many skin savvy individuals are used to products that use this kind of approach, which may be why this product scored so low on some consumer-driven sites.

For example, Matrixyl 3000® is an element that was intentionally designed to help promote Collagen production, which is the core of maintaining good skin health and keeping aging at bay. It has been shown in studies to be able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 40%, as well as being able to increase skin firmness and thickness.

 Positives
• May contain Argireline®


 Negatives
• May not contain Matrixyl 3000®
• May not use a multi-level approach to anti-aging


 Final Thoughts
The Reclaim® system may be endorsed by Victoria Principal, who clearly looks great for her age, but this may not mean that her products are as effective as they could be. The fact that it contains Argireline®, means that it may be highly effective in addressing certain aspects of aging, but this formula may do little to address other issues such as Collagen production and wrinkle density. As noted above, this product may have scored poorly on some consumer-driven rating sites, and this may well be because of its one-sided focus. For this reason, we had little choice but to agree with the ratings found on these sites. We feel that it is important for individuals to understand a product’s true abilities, which is why we recommend fully researching a product before using it. We belive good products will come with a complete list of proven and effective ingredients, good customer service and a money-back guarantee.
