Artistry: One of the World's Best Selling Skincare Brands Not Sold in Stores

Everyone has heard of Crème de la Mer, Clinique, Dermalogica and Chantecaille. But one of the world's best-selling skincare lines is relatively unknown to the vast majority of American consumers.

Amway's Artistry outsells many better-known skincare brands in markets around the world but is only available through Amway sales agents and mail order.

Although Artistry isn't a household name, that may change thanks to two innovative skincare products the Michigan-based company has introduced recently. Crème LuXury is Artistry's top-of-the line skincare product. Like the popular Crème de la Mer, it utilizes active ingredients to purportedly give women a more youthful countenance (81 percent of women surveyed saw a decrease in visible fine lines).

The $340 crème is thick and fragrant, with the consistency of cold cream. But the similarities end there. This isn't your grandmother's moisturizer. Crème LuXury uses scientifically proven ingredients such as cardiolipin to optimize skin radiance and appearance. You don't have to use much to get the benefits. Dab on a little before bed to promote cell turnover.

The newest addition to the Artistry family is the Intensive Skincare Renewing Peel ($95.50). Most peels are made of alpha hydroxy acids (salicylic, glycolic and lactic). The Renewing Peel consists of a unique mushroom enzyme, making it a safer alternative to fruit acids for at-home use.

Artistry scientists put the mushroom through rigorous testing. The enzyme self adjusts to the skin's pH level, allowing for full penetration without over-exfoliating. The results are extraordinary, as I can attest. You get the tingling of regular peels but none of the redness or fear of burns.
