I’m not as young as I used to be, friends. And being as fair-skinned tends to show off skin imperfections like a spotlight shining on them. I’ve always had lots of freckles, especially in the summer, but as I’ve gotten older (and especially in the last year when I’ve spent more time outside on runs) my skin has also developed patches of sun damage. So a daily lotion that can help brighten my skin is a must. And with age also comes wrinkles; I’ve also noticed as I’ve lost weight that my skin doesn’t have the elasticity it used to and the excess skin makes my wrinkles seem even more pronounced. So I was excited to try two products from Ageless Derma – Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream and their Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener.
The anti-wrinkle cream retails for $65 and the skin brightener for $49, and each package is one ounce. But don’t be alarmed – big results can come in small packages.
From Ageless Derma, more info on their skin brightener:
Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener is an innovative new treatment that is clinically proven to reduce all types of hyperpigmentation and leave you with soft, glowing skin. Whether you are concerned by freckles, age spots, brown spots, liver spot or changes in skin pigmentation caused by pregnancy or oral contraceptives, Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener has been specially formulated with an all-new combination of natural and bio engineered ingredients to lighten the skin without any harmful side effects.
And their anti-wrinkle cream:
Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a revolutionary new product to protect and revitalize your skin from the signs of aging. Combining seven scientifically proven anti-aging ingredients into one product, Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream eliminates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the firmness and elasticity of skin, removes crow’s feet and re-energizes skin for a smoother, firmer and younger look. Each of Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream’s special ingredients has undergone rigorous scientific testing that demonstrates its ability to make dramatic improvements on aging skin.
One of the things I love most about these Ageless Derma products was evident before I even tried the lotions themselves – their new airless pump. It’s similar to the nail polish remover dispensers used at salons, where the product is dispensed through a hole in the top by pressing down. Pressing the top of these containers dispenses enough lotion for one application, so you can avoid using too much (or too little) and your product lasts longer and stays fresher without wasting lots of excess product. The dispenser is also easier to keep clean, so you’re not left with crusty gunk around the pump opening as can often happen with more common dispensers.
The lotions themselves are great-feeling. They leave my skin moisturized, and without a greasy sheen on my face or fingers. They absorb quickly and leave my skin feeling fresh, just like a light moisturizer. I have a chronically shiny T zone, but after using Ageless Derma’s products I didn’t feel like I had an oil slick sliding down my face. The lotions have a subtle, clean scent – nothing perfume-y to irritate my senses or chemical-smelling to make me feel like a lab experiment.
I’ve also noticed a definite improvement in the tone and texture of my skin after two weeks of use, things that were surprisingly hard to capture with a camera but that could easily be seen in the mirror and felt whenever I touched my face. I love using the skin brightener in the morning, to give my face a more “awake” glow. It’s subtle, but I’ve also noticed my sun spots have gotten just a bit lighter. And the fine lines around my eyes and mouth seem to be filling in and smoothing out thanks to my evening ritual with the anti-wrinkle cream. I also have some acne scars that have faded, which I LOVE; nothing like being in your mid- to late-thirties and still struggling with acne. I like that, post-skin brightener, I can use a tinted moisturizer instead of a full-on foundation to even out my skin tone.
Another great part of Ageless Derma’s lotions are the ingredients. I have very sensitive skin, but Ageless Derma’s products haven’t irritated my skin at all; in fact, my skin looks healthier, brighter and more supple. Is it possible to age in reverse, Benjamin Button-style?
Ageless Derma’s products aren’t cheap, and they aren’t for everyone. But there’s been noticeable improvement in the quality of my skin in the last two weeks, and for that these little black pumps have earned a permanent spot in the crowded real estate of my bathroom counter. And if you’re not completely satisfied, you can return your product to Ageless Derma within 30 days for a full refund.
