Over the years, I have battled the typical acne as a teen and now with recently hitting the big 3-5 birthday milestone this month, I am more concerned with fine lines and wrinkles. Recently, I was able to experience Allu Ultimate Skin Therapy.
Allu Ultimate Skin Therapy was formulated by Dr. Samir A. Bute. Years ago, researchers found ancient writings about surgical techniques used to keep the Pharaoh and his family looking youthful. There was a recipe included as a footnote in these writings that spurred Dr. Bute’s interest. This “recipe” was used for “Transforming an Old Man into a Youth”. Dr. Bute traveled back and forth from New York Academy and Egypt, researching to unlock the “Fountain of Youth”.
Eternal Beauty Ingredients
Bitter Almonds contain mandelic acid, an alpha-hydroxy-acid that rejuvenates skin, combats hyper-pigmentation, improves skin elasticity, and prevents breakouts. The acid in Bitter Almonds’ molecular structure is larger than that of other alpha-hydroxy-acids. As such, it is more slowly absorbed into the skin, helping make Allu’s effects last longer with minimal irritation.
Neroli, an essential oil extracted from fragrant blossoms of the bitter orange tree, has an enchanting history. Cleopatra soaked her sails in Neroli to assist in her (successful!) seduction of her Roman conquerors. Neroli is much more than a scintillating flavor, however – modern science has shown that Neroli can improve skin elasticity, stimulate new cell growth, relax wrinkles and soften scars.
Beta-Arbutin is a skin brightener, inhibiting melanin production by limiting tyrosinase. It reduces areas of hyperpigmenation, post blemish scars, fades freckles, and evens out skin tone. This results in brighter skin, more uniform in tone.
Green Tea is included as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that protects against free radical damage. This helps sooth irritated skin, reduce redness, and heal dry cracked skin.
Grape Seed Extract contains powerful antioxidants to protect collagen and elastin, resulting in noticeably firmer skin.
Vitamins A, C and E: Vitamin A: increases skin cell regeneration and turnover, and helps stimulate collagen production. This helps your body keep its skin looking smooth and tight naturally, and can also lighten discoloration of the skin. Vitamin C: prevents oxidative changes to skin cells that occur following sun exposure. Vitamin C also assists Allu’s rejuvenation effects, making for happier, healthier skin. Vitamin E: provides hydration and helps Allu help your skin attract moisture out of the air. Vitamin E also helps restore elasticity, radiance and beauty.
Lanolin is known as the World’s greatest emollient. As such, it helps the skin maintain suppleness and elasticity, contributing to Allu’s lasting effects.
Collagen is a protein that gives structure to skin, contributes to elasticity, and rounds out wrinkles. As we age, the skin’s natural collagen diminishes. Without correction, this inevitably contributes to the development of wrinkles and a reduction in the skin’s elasticity. Collagen increases hydration, improves skin elasticity, and decreases the extent and depth of wrinkles.
Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide) is a patented peptide complex that modulates the excessive stimulation of facial muscles, relaxing facial tension and also reducing the depth of wrinkles. It’s “like Botox without the hassle.”
White Lotus grew in ponds and marshes throughout ancient Egypt. Popular for its moisturizing and replenishing, the White Lotus was cultivated for its natural beauty and healing powers. Our White Lotus draws its nutrients from the rich, black mud from where it grows, helping your skin pull water out of the air to refresh the skin.
The packaging and product are in the shape of a pyramid. The directions are to apply liberally to the face, AM and PM after washing the face. It can be used as a primer before applying make-up.
Dr. Bute’s formula is to re-hydrate skin, smooth skin tone, and decrease lines/wrinkles. I do feel after the two weeks of using that my crow’s feet have diminished and my freckles are lessened by using Allu. My skin doesn’t feel as dry as I remember it going into winter as in the past. I wish I would have taken/before after images as a comparison, but I do personally feel there is difference.
Overall, I do think the product does deliver what it promises. I accidentally found that it has a bitter taste so make sure not to leave on your lips. The only other issue I had was sometimes lining the top of the pyramid up to open and close wasn’t always instantly locking/unlocking.

The cream is a nice consistency. It was easy to apply and took maybe a minute to soak in.
