I heard many times that some anti aging products don’t work as well as the companies claimed them to be.
Which affordable brands (like Loreal, Olay, Garnier, etc) of anti aging products actually work from your experiences?
Well, of course they don’t. Aging skin is not something that can really be arrested by any beauty product, no matter what the claims.
However, the effects of aging can be minimized and perhaps delayed a bit. I like L’Oreal’s Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair, combined with Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist (CP+) Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler. On top of these, I always wear a moisturizer including a sunscreen — 15 SPF, at least.
My dermatologist likes RoC products, so I use the Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, on top of which I slather Nivea’s Essentially Enriched Body Lotion. It may be made for the body, but basic moisturizers are all the same.
I’m not suffering from deep wrinkles yet, but I have some wrinkles, and it may be that I can keep them at bay for a while. Ultimately, however, it’s a losing battle. We all have to face that realistically.
The Estee Lauder product really is effective. I’ve seen a significant difference. The major problem with all these products is that they may flake and pill when you try to apply make-up on top of them, and then you have to use a brush or tissue to lightly remove this flaking or pilling. The cosmetic companies haven’t quite figured out to handle that tendency.
