The Revolutionary Anti-Aging Skincare Brand Hundreds Of Beauty Professionals Swear By

If you’re been tirelessly searching for a supremely natural, safe and effective anti-aging skincare line that helps reduce brown spots, gently exfoliate dead skin cells and smooth fine lines, you’re about to hit the jackpot!


Spend time Googling Restorsea, and you’ll find several enthralling videos with Founder and CEO Patti Pao. Not only is she a revolutionary formulator – having been the first person to effectively utilize the Aquabeautine XL® enzyme without denaturing it – she’s also quite a storyteller. I’ve had the great honor of Zooming with her one-on-one and been one of hundreds of Beautytap’s Beauty Experts to learn firsthand about her medical grade products. 


Restorsea, the Revolutionary Anti-Aging Skincare Brand Hundreds Of Beauty Professionals Swear By


If you’ve never heard of Restorsea before, it’s probably because these clinically proven products have never been sold to the public except through dermatology offices. When Restorsea came to Beautytap earlier this year, Beauty Experts seized the opportunity to not only try these products themselves but to recommend them to others looking for quality results without uncomfortable side effects. 


Beauty Experts Love Restorsea Products Because:


  • They diminish the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation better than glycolic acid.
  • The formulas are safe enough for post-procedural use.
  • They are safe for all skin types.
  • Their proprietary enzyme, Aquabeautine XL®, exfoliates only dead skin cells.
  • They don’t contain parabens, phthalates, silicones, sulfates, PEGs, or mineral oil.


Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream

Many people dismiss eye creams under the assumption that they’re just smaller jars of facial cream with higher price tags. Beauty Experts know otherwise. They understand that the undereye area is more prone to wrinkling due to dynamic movements like smiling. They also understand that products like retinol, which work to diminish these lines, can be harsh and lead to excessive flaking and dryness. Reviewers consistently note that Restorsea’s Revitalizing Eye Cream:


  • “Softens crow’s feet” and “smooths fine lines”
  • “Melts” immediately and effortlessly into the skin
  • “Doesn’t pill up”
  • “Wears well under concealer”
  • “Brightens” dark circles (thanks to circulation-enhancing Glucosyl Hesperidin)
  • “Reduces puffiness” – which isn’t even one of its claims!

Ask any Beauty Expert where your skincare dollar is best spent, and you’ll likely hear one word: serum. When properly formulated, these potent, problem-solving products deliver real results with consistent use. Restorsea’s Renormalizing Serum targets dark spots that are caused by sun exposure, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) from acne, and melasma caused by pregnancy or birth control pills. Unlike prescription tretinoin, which can be difficult for some people to tolerate, especially those with sensitive skin, Restorsea’s living enzyme formula is gentle and paired with hydration-rich Kalpariane (brown algae) as well as 2% Vitamin C and Songyi Mushroom extract to brighten the skin. As a Beautytap favorite, reviewers appreciate Restorsea’s:


  • “Fresh,” natural white tea scent
  • “Silky,” “lightweight,” “watery” texture
  • “Fast absorption” 


Repairing Neck and Décollatage Treatment

As you might’ve noticed, the Beautytap Experts weigh in heavily on targeted products that address key skin concerns. Restorsea offers eight skincare solutions here, and they’ve amassed nearly 1,000 likes in approximately six months. The Repairing Neck and Décollatage Treatment is no exception. Treating these areas effectively presents a challenge because the neck and décolleté contain very few sebaceous glands, making them prone to dryness. The skin is thinner than other areas of the body, and lack of muscle tone exacerbates sagging over time. After testing this product for themselves, our Beauty Experts were most impressed by the way the gel:


  • “Applied smoothly” 
  • “Dried down without feeling sticky”
  • “Improved [their skin’s] texture”
  • Made the neck area feel “firmer” and “more taut” 
  • Gave them “younger looking cleavage”


Want to experience these benefits for yourself? Most results occur within 12 weeks with twice daily application, but you can have the luxury of experiencing a sample before making the investment.

The eye cream is seriously the best I've tried so far. I'm down to the last few drops of the face oil and I'm like nooooooo.... a little goes a long way and makes such a noticeable difference immediately. Really great products from a founder who is obviously passionate about quality and efficacy.

I'm so glad you're loving Restorsea, Kim. My vanity looks like a Restorsea store! The eye cream was the first product that hooked me, and now I'm using almost everything they make (full-sizes, too!). Shortly after buying my first Restorsea eye cream, I got a black eye. While healing, it didn't peel or get crepey-looking, thanks to the hesperidin, which improves circulation, and the Aquabeautine XL enzyme, which lightly exfoliated the skin. I'm sold!

Agree! I just purchased the full size because my eyes are looking tired since I ran out of samples! It is honestly the best!

I have an easy time selling brands I love and believe in and this is one of them! Every client I have recommended this to has not been disappointed and I am confident will be a repeat buyer! I have used many different neck creams and this one is the bomb!!

I absolutely agree, Deborah. Restorsea's neck treatment has filled a void in my skincare routine. I'm a retin A user, but applying it to my neck more than once a week often results in intense irritation. Restorsea's product has taken its place, and I couldn't be more pleased. It's not a miracle (skincare never is) but it's darn close!

Patti is a maverick! Previously formulating products for Avon and then launching her own line, is what makes her a visionary. Taking ingredients from the sea, from nature, and weaving them into good, clean, skincare is not easy. My turkey neck is not gone, but it is less wrinkly. Barring an invasive surgery, this line delivers the best bang without the knife.

I couldn't agree more! Restorsea's Neck & Decolletage treatment is officially a staple in my routine.

I live for the white tea scent and use this brand as an example that "scent" in the product is not bad, just like any item, you must do your research and watch out for "trend cancel culture ingredients( parabens, alcohol, etc) so much more to know then what those IG skincare memes tell you.

Thank you for deciphering the scent, Jonni! It's fresh and clean, and I appreciate you mentioning that not all ingredients are inherently bad. New article addressing those "cancel culture ingredients" coming very soon.

Oh Patti Pao, what a lifeforce! She is an incredibly intelligent woman, and has created an even more incredible line of skincare. The science and story behind Restorsea is fascinating, as are the results. I used this product for 3 months, and it incorporated with facial massage techniques. I was so impressed with the results, especially on the difficult and delicate décolletage. My "boob folds" have diminished, and my skin looks brighter than before I started using it. Slow and steady wins the race, and Restorsea is in the lead! Greatest part? Its available with the sample... Read more

I'm with you, Jenny! Restorsea's products do provide visible results when used consistently. I'm officially a walking commercial for this brand, but more importantly, I'm a loyal customer.


Such great products, in great packaging that are backed by Science. It is really effective, a little goes a long way, but it does take time to see the effects. I had never heard the term Décolletage until this brand.

I'm sure you're not alone in learning about the decolletage, Cliff. I'm on my second bottle of this product, and it has made a huge difference in my neck's texture. Less crepe-y and "old lady-ish" (a term I can use 'cuz I'm over 50). :) This Restorsea product is a keeper and one I'm proud to recommend.

The Restorsea Eye Cream is my go-to eye cream! I love the texture, it's not too heavy and super effective! I'm also using the neck treatment and it's really beginning to firm up my neck! Love it!

So glad you love the eye cream. That was my very first full-size Restorsea purchase, and now my vanity looks like a shelf in a derm's office because there are so many others there, too.


a definite must try product

I couldn't agree more, Gretchell! If people are patient and use the products diligently, they will see results. I started with the eye cream and now have a full-size bottle of everything.


With 35 global patents and $50 Million R&D, this Harvard graduate created quite an amazing formula. If you haven't tried this brand yet, you are missing out!

I'm so thankful to have discovered Restorsea in 2020. I've been using the Day Cream on several "suspicious" moles that my dermatologist recently treated with a freezing agent, and the patented enzyme has helped the dead skin exfoliate gently and quickly while also nurturing the fresh skin underneath. I fully understand why they're a medical practitioner's favorite. Worth every penny!

Another concise and entertaining article. Restorsea is my absolute favorite at this time. I went from the samples straight to full size products just as soon as my little fingers could carry me from my wallet to my shopping cart. Im on week 10 with the face wash and I already see a huge difference in the uniformity of my complexions tone and texture. I really can't say enough great things about this brand. Adding in the numbers from the verified expert reviews really puts this brand into perspective. One only needs to try a sample to see why the... Read more

The popularity of the cleanser may have been a surprise to Patti, as she mentioned to me in a previous interview, but everyone I know who has tried it is hooked. It's helped reduce the irritation and flakiness I used to get from tretinoin and has kept maskne at bay by keeping my pores clear. I'm so glad you're enjoying the results!
