Anti-aging skin care continues to advance with new technology, but tried and true products are still selling strong. So, what are the products – old and new – that consumers love because they work?
Alpha Hydrox is a hugely popular anti-aging brand. Their Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash is soap free and appropriate for all skin types. It’s alcohol free, so it doesn’t dry your face out and oil free so it doesn’t clog pores. It’s the perfect cleanser to use before putting on any anti-aging treatments as it cleanses so well. Many loyal customers feel that this cleanser is better than more expensive brands. Another great cleanser is Olay Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser with Beta Hydroxy Complex with Gentle Microbeads. This cleanser lifts away makeup, dirt, and oils and the beta hydroxy complex and microbeads exfoliate and help in reducing the signs of aging. Customers say it leaves their skin smooth and glowing.

Customers say that this serum helps their skin feel smoother and firmer and can help with reducing redness from acne or rosacea. philosophy save me is for use at night and contains retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C, and peptides. The retinol helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and clogged pores. The Vitamin C helps brighten skin tone. And, the peptides help lift and firm the skin. Some customers even see a marked improvement in their dark under eye circles!
If you’re looking for a great moisturizer that has anti-aging properties as well, look no further than Kinerase. Kinerase Cream, with 0.1% N6-furfuryladenine will moisturize your skin but also helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consumers love the improvement to their skin that this cream gives. And of course, philosophy has another great product for anti-aging, hope in a jar. In fact, hope in a jar is one of their top selling products overall. It contains beta glucan and lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin while still moisturizing. Customers who love this product consistently rave about its ability to even out skin tone, clear up skin, soften and smooth, and giving skin a healthy glow.
A couple of new anti-aging products on the market are the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator and the L’Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejuvenator is a device onto which you attach little puffs that contain ultra-fine crystals and mild purifiers. The device massages and vibrates your skin to exfoliate, boost circulation and oxygen flow, and increase cell turnover. This will help your skin look more “luminous” instantly and over a couple of months, you should see an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and firmness. Simply use the Healthy Skin Rejuvenator in place of any exfoliating wash or scrub three times per week.
The L’Oreal Skin Genesis line includes three different moisturizers and a serum. Perhaps the most promising product in this line is the L’Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum Concentration. This serum is intended to strengthen the upper layers of your skin, making it tighter and younger looking, as well as even out skin tone and improve firmness. L’Oreal claims that its patented Pro-Xylane molecule is so small, it can penetrate the surface layers of the skin. And, although L’Oreal scientists created this Pro-Xylane molecule, it is actually derived naturally using what they call “green chemistry”. Time will tell if these products take off like other anti-aging skin care products. But they definitely hold promise!
There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of anti-aging products out there. What works for one person may not work for another. Hopefully this information about the products that perform well for many consumers will be helpful in choosing what products are right for you.
