Finding the best products for your skin can be a full time job! It takes time, money and energy to test out which ones work best. In this article, we are talking serums. They have become wildly popular in the world of skincare and for good reason. After spending about one year testing so many brands, I have found these to be the best for anti-aging. What are your favorites? Read on, ask questions, and please feel free to comment!
Retrouvé was founded by third generation Kiehl's heir, Jami Morse Heidegger and her husband Klaus. They initially created the luxury unisex line with high-octane active ingredients in high concentrations for their own personal use. The Nutrient Face Serum is full of vitamin supplements made to activate stem cells, improve suppleness of skin and firm the face. The Hydrolyzed Algin heals damaged skin, while the Vitamin C brightens, and the Ambiaty Extract enhances collagen synthesis. Perfect to use day and night under your favorite moisturizer for normal skin. I love the whole product line but it's very pricey!
The No. 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is clinically proven to reduce deep lines and wrinkles with its lightweight, hypoallergenic formula. The active ingredient Matrixyl 3000 Plus works to help restore more youthful skin over time. This product has a patented antioxidant complex that helps protect skin from future signs of aging. 80% of women said this serum provided the best ever anti-aging results they have ever seen. Worth the $30 a bottle for sure!
The Dermarie Lumitox Acetyl Hexapeptide Facial Serum works like Botox to interrupt the nerve signals responsible for facial expression lines and wrinkles. Use morning and night to reverse and prevent expression lines between, or instead of injections. This product creates smooth and tighter skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines. Some of the active ingredients of this product include Chondus Crispus (seaweed) extract, and two powerful peptides, Hexapeptide-30 and Actyl Hexapeptide-8. These two peptides work to calm the muscle movement that cause fine lines. There's a lot of science behind this product and I think it works well to improve the look and feel of your skin.
The RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum is an anti-aging serum that I like to use specifically to reduce lines around the eye area. The RES Technology in this product targets the eye area with a Line Relaxing Complex. This potent serum works well to smooth fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eyes. In the clinical trials, 100% of consumers reported an immediate improvement.
I love the Radical Skincare Advance Peptide Antioxidant Serum because it's the one serum that gives you the Trylacel™ Technology (see video below). It contains thirteen ingredients that help even out your skin tone, reduce wrinkles, create more youthful appearance and increase the elasticity of your skin. After 4 weeks of use, 100% women who tested this product have been measured with an improvement of width, severity and number of wrinkles.
The Moon™ Serum by Me And The Girls is perfect for the eco-conscience gal with its 99% Certified Organic ingredients. The anti-aging serum is full of antioxidants to help nourish your skin. Some of the ingredients include organic jojoba seed oil, organic sunflower seed oil, organic vanilla oil and so many more. It can also help to heal sun damage by applying the product overnight. The company is all about setting a standard by being cruelty-free, non-GMO, no chemicals or fillers or synthetic fragrances.
The Environ® Ionzyme® Range Focus Hydrating Serum intensely hydrates and adds volume to skin. This product contains hyaluronic acid that helps to smooth wrinkles, plumps and firms the skin. It's also great serum to treat dry, photodamaged skin. Contains Transcutol CG - a highly effective Penetrant enhancer. I like to use this serum in conjunction with many of the other Environ skincare products.
The Collagenesis Deep Wrinkle Protocol Age Reset Serum is great for brightening skin and giving it a boost of hydration. I like this product because there is a time-release of hyaluronic acid that is slowly absorbed by the skin and it's super hydrating. This makes skin smooth, relax and erase appearance of fine lines. The HGF-7 complex is the seven-ingredient complex that help to rejuvenate your skin. Peptides, amino acids and vitamins also encourage your skin to gain strength and elasticity.
VOUCELLE Stem Cell Activation Serum is the product of a collaboration between Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Joel Aronowitz and an international acclaimed and highly regarded scientist, Dr. Kiminobu Sugaya. Both Dr.'s are leaders in stem cell research and Dr. Aronowitz is committed to refining non-invasive methods of anti-aging. VOUCELLE's stem cell activating technology stimulates the body to naturally create its own skin cells. The proprietary ingredient has received a US patent grant and was based on over 15 years of research and development into the acceleration of wound healing. It was discovered that this restorative medical breakthrough was useful in the multiplying of stem cells in the skin. A great serum to use for skin regeneration and renewal in conjunction with your daily skincare. Apply at night to face and neck for the most effective results.
