Top 3 Wrinkle Creams

Our Top 3 Wrinkle CreamsTop Wrinkle Creams – An Overview

If you’re like most women (including myself), you’ve probably gone through several hundred tubes and jars of anti-aging products which all promise the same thing…to reduce or even eliminate wrinkles. And like me, you’ve probably been let down to find that many of these so called “miracle creams” were nothing short of a halfway decent moisturizer.

Moisturizers are easy to find, but anti-aging treatments that make a real difference to not only smooth fine lines and wrinkles, but actually reduce wrinkle depth, reduce hyper-pigmentation, and rejuvenate the skin to bring noticeable results requires a product with cutting edge ingredients. After reviewing and trying dozens of different wrinkle creams and anti-aging treatments, I have to say that choosing my top products was not easy.  However, I did narrow it down to three superior products worthy of being our favorite choices that have given me great results!

What makes our Top Wrinkle Creams stand out from the rest?

We ranked our top three wrinkle creams based on a wide variety of criteria, including:

  • Long Term vs. Short Term Results
  • Strength and Effectiveness of Ingredients
  • Our personal experience trying the product first hand
  • Feedback from other users
  • Reputation of manufacturer
  • Price

Below you will find a brief overview of our top wrinkle creams, listed in the order in which we rank them.  You can either choose to visit the official website of that product to learn more, or you can read our official reviews by clicking on the link provided.  We also invite you to leave your feedback below if you have tried any of these products or have specific questions.  Either way, have fun and enjoy the reviews!

My #1 Top Wrinkle Cream – Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment

Lifecell Anti Aging Treatment

Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment, Our #1 Wrinkle Cream, instantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles!

Price: $189 for a two month supply

Topping our list for skincare products is Lifecell, which is a #1 rated anti-aging treatment developed by South Beach Skincare.  Lifecell is a scientific breakthrough in anti-aging that provides immediate and long lasting results.  It’s age-defying ingredients dramatically reduce the appearance of damaged skin and hyper pigmentation, moisturizes, and improves the skins firmness and elasticity. Lifecell’s promise is that of an “instant facelift” and this product delivers.

You may have read some hype about this product, as there are a number of Celebrities and Dermatologists that swear by Lifecell, and what’s amazing about this product is that it actually starts working in 17 seconds.

Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment is packed with a powerful blend of anti-oxidants, water binding agents, and complex tightening agents that create a natural botox-like effect on the skin to bring immediate results. It not only moisturizes your face, it creates a supple, youthful, and less “wrinkly” appearance – instantly!

My Results From Using Lifecell

I used Estee Lauder’s Time Zone for years, and had decent results with moisturizing, but what’s amazing about Lifecell is that it smoothed away my wrinkles immediately and dramatically reduced the hyper pigmentation along my jaw line.

I have been using Lifecell over two years now and it is THE product in my beauty arsenal that has made the most difference in my skin. It makes my skin smoother, wrinkle free, and it’s reduced redness to give me a more even complexion, and it creates the perfect palette for applying makeup. I feel more confident in my skin at 42 years old than I did in my 30’s!

Lifecell is also a wonderful eye treatment and can be used both underneath the eyes and on your eyelids. It’s hypo allergenic and PETA approved.  It is truly an amazing product – it’s like having 7 beauty products in one! The value of this product lies directly in the results I’ve experienced personally, and to me it’s worth the splurge.

 My #2 Top Wrinkle Cream – Kollagen Intensiv

Kollagen Intensiv

Kollagen Intensiv moisturizes and plumps the skin with collagen boosting ingredients

Price: $59.95

Read My Personal Review…

Visit Kollagen Intensiv’s Official Site

Our second choice is a product called Kollagen Intensiv, which was originally developed by researchers in Switzerland.  This product is different from Lifecell in that it boosts collagen levels naturally, and improves the elasticity in your skin as well as reduces hyper-pigmentation.

We originally came across this product while researching some of the top wrinkle creams on other sites, and decided to order a 3 months supply of it ourselves. What’s great about Kollagen Intensiv is that it has a really nice silky feel to it, and it provides moisture on a deep level while boosting collagen and elastin in the skin. Kollagen Intensiv is very hydrating, absorbs nicely, and leaves no greasy residue or tacky feeling. It has a light, refreshing smell and is calming to the skin with no harsh ingredients – it’s a great choice for sensitive skin.

My Results From Using Kollagen Intensiv

Compared to a lot of other anti-wrinkle creams I have tried, this one gives me the right balance of moisture, plumpness, and helps to reduce redness and even out my skin tone. With effective ingredients such as SYN®COL, it’s no wonder this product works so well to boost collagen production for younger looking skin. When we mentioned you should look for cutting edge ingredients in a wrinkle cream, this is exactly what we’re talking about.

While more economically priced as compared to Lifecell, it may not have quite the instant wrinkle smoothing effect that Lifecell does, but it does a great job boosting collagen to give you softer, plumper, younger looking skin.  Sometimes I actually prefer using Kollagen Intensiv when I feel like I need the added moisture. If you have normal, combination or dry skin, I highly recommend this product.

My #3 Top Wrinkle Cream – Dermology Wrinkle Repair Complex

Dermology Wrinkle Repair Complex

Dermology has a silky texture that dries to a matte finish

Price:  $49.95

Read My Personal Review…

Visit Dermology Wrinkle Repair’s Official Site

Showing it’s tightening and wrinkle reducing effects immediately, Dermology Wrinkle Repair Complex is an all in one formula which uses a  potent cocktail of the latest and most scientific anti-aging ingredients to relax the muscles responsible for wrinkles, while stimulating collagen production in the deepest layers of the skin to provide healing moisture to dry, sun damaged, and aged-looking skin.

Dermology contains Argireline, which Dr. Oz calls “the best needle free alternative to cosmetic injections.” It also contains Matrixyl 3000 to plump up collagen, Hyarulonic Acid to retain moisture, and soothing apricot and sunflower oil to sooth and calm red, irritated skin.  We break these ingredients down in our review to show you how they work to reveal younger, firmer and rejuvenated skin. You won’t find these cutting edge ingredients in drug store brands.

What stands out about Dermology Wrinkle Repair is while it’s highly thirst quenching to the skin, it absorbs and dries to a flawless matte finish. Its formula will rejuvenate the skin, diminish wrinkles, tighten and tone, remove puffiness and brighten your skin tone.

We believe that Dermology Wrinkle Repair delivers a very targeted “one-two punch” to wrinkles and signs of aging by first addressing the outer layers of skin and then improving conditions in deeper layers as well.

My Results from Using Dermology Wrinkle Repair Complex

Dermology Wrinkle Repair Complex

Dermology is flawless under makeup!

Dermology worked immediately to tighten my skin, and reduce the appearance of my wrinkles. It worked to give me a more youthful and all over wrinkle-free appearance. This is exactly how Argireline works and why it’s compared to botox – it relaxes the muscles that create furrows and wrinkles to give the skin a smoother appearance. 

Dermology also has a nice silky, moisturizing formula and I like how it feels going on, and also how once it absorbs, it leaves no greasy residue at all. This formula would work extremely well for combination or oily skin and won’t leave you shiny!

I experienced no side effects at all while using Dermology as it’s very calming to the skin with a barely there scent. I’ve been told by my dermatologist that I have “vascular” skin meaning I often have a little redness in my skin tone on my face and chest and Dermology helped to noticeably reduce redness and give me a more evened skin tone. I would consider Dermology a “breakthrough” wrinkle cream based on my results and I will definitely continue to use it!

Need help deciding? Just a few tips….

Let me just add that while all 3 of these anti-aging treatments are worthy of a #1 position as being effective for treating ALL signs of aging and would work well with most skin types, if you need a little help deciding which one might be best for you and the problem you’re trying to treat, see if this list helps. This is a very general list, and I encourage you to read my full reviews for more information, but in a nutshell:

  • If your main concern is wrinkles, I would recommend either Lifecell or Dermology as they both have “tightening” and “wrinkle relaxing” agents in them and contain the most cutting edge anti-aging  ingredients.
  • If your skin is more on the dry side, I would recommend Kollagen Intensiv as it is the “most” moisturizing out of the three.
  • If you need to treat wrinkles in addition to treating dark spots, then the best bet is either Lifecell (#1 choice) or Kollagen Instensiv, as they both can treat those conditions (if your skin is more oily, go with Lifecell).
  • If you have acne prone skin, I would recommend Dermology.

    Rachel,I need your help on getting a phone number to cancel an order I made today for a free trial for Revival Beauty Cream and Revival Eye Serum that has Dr. Oz in the ad online. I sent you a letter earlier today but I did something wrong and the post was deleted. I didn’t listen to that nagging voice that was saying “check it out first” and now i want to cancel because of the posts I’ve been reading on your blog. When I went back to find the number all it does is takes me to other offers on different products. Please help me if you can or maybe one of your viewers could help. Thank you so much! I sure wish I had read your blog first!

      Debbie, I’m sorry but I can’t find a phone number for Revival for the life of me, which usually means it’s a scam. I would call your credit card company immediately and ask them for the phone number listed with the transaction since you probably don’t have your statement yet. Tell your card company you’ve been scammed and see if they will block further charges. Try to call the number to cancel right away. If there’s no phone number, you may have to cancel your card altogether and have them send you a new one. Sorry for your troubles.

    Hi Rachel, I was wondering if you could give me a review on Dr. Oz’s Revival Beauty Cream and his Revival Eye Serum. I ordered the free trial of both of these products without investigating the reviews. I know it was dumb on my part but,I think I can trust Dr. Oz.Now, I am having doubts. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! I look forward to your email reply.

      Debbie, Dr. Oz does not recommend ANY creams – therefore any and all Dr. Oz recommended wrinkle cream ads that you see are all FAKE. They are deceptive, so don’t feel bad for falling for this scam. Just be aware in the future.

    HI, Rachel. I happen to be looking for similar products you advocate for on the womensblogtalk website, but for men. Are these products that appear to be mainly geared toward women also just as viable and beneficial for men, as well or do you recommend other products that are better for men?

      Rachel Vrabel March 26, 2015 at 3:16 pm - Reply

      Hi Sean, all of my top 3 creams are great for men as well, but the one that seems to be the favorite is Kollagen Intensiv. I have my brother using it (he’s 44) and he loves it. My husband also uses it occasionally after volleyball if his skin is dry or he got too much sun (he should use it every night for wrinkle prevention but he’s too lazy;) It has a light fresh scent, not floral or strong at all. Let me know if you have questions.

      Tamara, to be honest, I have not tried Nerium. I had a lady pushing me like crazy to sell Nerium and to be a part of their “pyramid” marketing scheme. It’s sort of like Rodan & Fields, the people who sell Nerium try to sign up other people to sell Nerium and they make 90% of their money on selling the start up kits. No thanks. It could very well be a great product, but I steer clear of multi-level marketing like the plague.

      Pat, I do have a review on Hydroxatone. I’m not a fan of this product to be honest. It’s usually promoted as a combo offer with both being offered as “free trials” so they suck you in to signing up for not one, but two free trials and most of the time the purchaser is not aware that it’s sent as an auto-ship, auto-rebill arrangement. How do you like it so far? Did you purchase it as a free trial where you just had to pay $4.95 in shipping and handling? Thanks for your comment and your feedback.

      Hi Bec, for your skin I would definitely recommend my #1 product, Lifecell. It works best to fill in lines and wrinkles for an all over smoother and younger looking complexion. My mother in law is your age and Lifecell is her favorite out of all of my top creams, she’s tried them all. For deeper wrinkles, Lifecell has a unique ability to camouflage. Thank you for your question and let me know if I can help in any other way!

          Hi Bec, I do have a review of the Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream you can check out. I don’t personally use the Roc products so I can’t give you a first hand opinion but I know you can buy their products at most drug store chains. I’ve never been overly impressed with any products from the drug store and find them mostly using marginal ingredients.

    Hi Rachel!
    I am so happy that I have found your blog…it’s refreshingly different and informative. Now my question is I am 36 and mother of 2. I have normal to dry skin. My skin is relatively good for my age but I do nothing special. As I am approaching to 40, now I want to do something for my skin. I have few dark spots on my cheek and wrinkles are started appearing around my eyes. So please suggest me something. And also I think I need something for skin tightening.
    And more important thing, as I am a homemaker now, I can’t spend a lot :(
    Thanks again for your wonderful blog…keep it up.. :)

      Hi Tamanna! I’m so sorry for the delay in writing back to you, I’ve had some server issues the past 24 hours but all is resolved! Well, having used my top 3 products for the better part of the past four years, for your skin being normal to dry, I feel that Kollagen Intensiv would be best for you as it’s a bit more moisturizing than Lifecell or Dermology. It’s a collagen booster, it feels wonderful going on, silky smooth but not greasy, and you can use it underneath your eyes (not on eyelids though). Also use it on your neck and chest. The neck skin is the thinnest skin on the body (aside from you eyelids) and will start showing your age once you hit 40 (like me eeeek!). Kollagen Intensiv is also the most reasonably priced and it comes in a 2 oz tub so it’s a good quantity. It’s sold outright and not on a free trial by the way, and they have a 90 day money back guarantee. Use it morning and night after your cleanser, toner and serum if you use one. It’s a wonderful product and made a real difference in my skin. If you need any thoughts on combining a toner for anti-aging, I’ve paired the Skinception AHA Toner with the Kollagen Intensiv for noticeable results. They are both collagen boosters and they make a real difference in the tone, texture and elasticity of your skin. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much for your inquiry!

    LifeCell says it is a 2 mo supply. Is that for 6 oz? What is the weight of Kollagen Intensiv? And, is the Dermotology Wrinkle Repair 1 oz or 1.9 oz? I am also looking for the best value!

      Hi Carol, Lifecell is a large 2.54 oz tube, Kollagen Intensiv is a 2.0 oz tub, and Dermology is a 1.0 oz tub. Kollagen Intensiv is the best bang for the buck, since it’s still 25% off through Dec. 31st. It’s normally $49 so with the discount it would be around $38. Hope that helps. I gave both my Mother, Mother-in-Law, Sister-in-Law and sister Kollagen Intensiv for Christmas and they all love it!

    Rachel – how refreshing to feel like someone can honestly answer womens questions on this. Would appreciate your help/recommendations: 1) I am 58 and want something to help with wrinkles, crows feet, etc. 2) I have some hyperpigmatation areas on my face & neck;
    2) I tend to have dry skin except sometimes in the T zone (but not always there); 3) I have a type of Lupus which tends to lead to areas similar to acne with scarring on my face; and 4) I have been using Bare Minerals makeup for some time now. would love your help on what creams, lightners coverage or help in reduction for these issues. My budget is tight as I am on disability so I want to get the best for my money. ALSO, the Bare Minerals – is there something that might be better and if not will it apply smooth over the creams? I am so excited to find this site and would love to have your help and comments on this. Thanks so much!

      Rachel Vrabel December 12, 2014 at 6:39 pm - Reply

      Hi Donna, thanks so much for your questions, I love it when I am given very specific information on skin so I can make a good recommendation. You have several issues going on and I must be up front with you that I have no experience with Lupus and its effect on the skin and how it can cause acne scarring. What I do know is this: your skin has a natural 28 day cycle of cell regeneration, and speeding up the sloughing process can be helped with a good exfoliator, toner and moisturizer to reveal younger looking, healthy vibrant skin. I have two options for you and you can read about both and let me know if you have questions…
      1) Stages of Beauty – this is a skin care system with age specific lines. The “Grace” line is for women in their 50’s which is what I would recommend for you. I am currently using the “Elegance” line for women in their 40’s and I absolutely love it. It’s a cleanser, exfoliator, toner, serum, and moisturizer. They use high quality ingredients and it leaves my skin feeling fabulous. I am actually giving my mother-in-law the Grace line for Christmas – she is 59. My review is actually on the “Harmony” line which is for women in their 30’s (I was on the cusp of age bracket when I purchased it). When I’m finished using the Elegance line for a couple of months I will provide an updated review on it, but I am honestly considering making the Stages of Beauty line my #1 recommendation – that’s how much I like it! If you follow the link I provided you can read my review, and click through to the Stages of Beauty site to learn more about it.
      2) My second option for you would be to use Skinception Microderm Facial Exfoliator, AHA Toner, and Kollagen Intensiv. You can click on those to read my individual reviews, but it’s easier to purchase all three in the same basket by going directly to the Skinception Anti-Aging Store. if you decide to purchase all three. I’ve used this combination with great results as well. It’s a bit “stronger” on the skin so if your skin is sensitive, the Stages of Beauty might be a little bit better of an option for you.
      3) as far as the makeup, I’ve been using “Makeup Forever HD Foundation” which you can purchase at Sephora for exceptional coverage and it’s very light on the skin (lighter than Bare Minerals which I’ve used – that actually caused me to breakout). I started using the HD foundation when I had my engagement pictures done, and then for my wedding and I’ve used it ever since! It goes on very smoothly and what I like about it is that it does feel light while giving good coverage. If you go to the Sephora store, they will take a picture of your skin with a little computer and give you an exact color match. It’s the best match for foundation I’ve EVER used. I don’t anticipate ever using anything else, that’s how much I love it! They also have powders that work very nicely with the foundation. I use the HD powder as well. The HD is for “high definition.” Please let me know if you have any more questions or if I missed answering any of your questions.

        Wow! Thanks for answering so quickly. I am going to go through each suggestion and make a decision. At least now I feel I am headed in a better direction. I am going to go to Sephora and have them do the color test. I have been thinking the Bare Minerals was not the best for me lately and welcome this recommendation. Lupus is a bummer – the places are actually like mini cysts and sort of travel like a tree root. My doctor has only seen one other who has it like me. Overall, I am delighted with your information and am sure that these products will be my next step. Thanks Again!!.

      Hi Valerie, you shouldn’t need to apply both. Did you buy these as a combo deal? I like both of these creams but they are similar in ingredients so there would be no benefit to using both simultaneously. If you have both, maybe just use one during the day and one at night.

    I have very sensitive skin and the Somaluxe brand is the only one that does not irritate my skin while helping me with my wrinkles. I have used the Somaluxe Moisturizer with the Lady Soma Berry Mask – and was very satisfied with results. I only wish that the selection of products was broader.

      Hi Michaela, I actually haven’t tried the Somaluxe brand but I just took a peek at the ingredients and it looks like a decent product although I’ve never liked the heaviness of cocoa butter for facial use personally. I’ll have to try and get my hands on some to give it a try. The Stages of Beauty line is also wonderful for sensitive skin. No sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs or synthetic dyes in any of the products and they are dermatologist tested for safety, 100% fragrance free, formulated for sensitive skin and never tested on animals. It’s a wonderful line if you’re interested in trying something new that is in line with the philosophy of Somaluxe. Thanks for your comment.

      Rachel Vrabel November 24, 2014 at 6:22 pm - Reply

      Hi Marie, my best value cream is Kollagen Intensiv, which is my #2 recommended wrinkle cream. It’s $49.95 for a 2oz tub but I have a coupon code in my review for 25% off through Dec. 31st. So the price would be $37 for a one month supply (just click through the link and you’ll see the coupon code at the top). I’ve used this cream regularly for over 2 years (I alternate between my top 3 but for the past month I’ve been using Kollagen Intensiv again). It’s a really nice anti-wrinkle cream for any skin type. It’s a collagen booster so it does a good job at plumping up those wrinkles and also reduces redness. Let me know if you have an specific questions, but that would be my recommendation. Thanks for your question.

      Hi Pam,
      I do have several reviews of Lancome products on WomensBlogTalk. If you go to the home page, and type in Lancome in the search box on the upper right hand side, a list of all those reviews will come up. You can also read this one on Lancome’s Genifique. Lancome has been around a long time, but it’s pricey and the reviews we found were mixed. Since you can purchase at department stores, I would try getting a sample first before purchasing. I feel that some of these high priced lines are overrated just because of the brand name i.e. Dior. I used to use Dior and it made me greasy and it was too fragrant for my sensitive skin. Hope that helps, and let me know if you have questions or if I can recommend something for you.

If your skin is very dry, then I would say give Kollagen Intensiv a try. Both are wonderful. If you have any specific skin issues, let me know so I can take those into consideration.

    Thank you for all your information about beauty and wrinkle creams.I am reluctant to purchase another cream but have been reading about your first hand experience with Lifesell. Does Lifecell get rid of wrinkles that are present already or just diminish the appearance.Also how much hoes Lifecell cost. Also can you purchase the product in a store.WHo created the product?
    Are you familiar with Dr Perricones’ products
    Are you invested in the Lifecell company /

      Hi Ellen, thanks for your questions, all good ones! Lifecell certainly works immediately to diminish wrinkles, and it works long term to reverse the signs of aging. There is no cream that will make your wrinkles disappear completely, but Lifecell can reduce the depth of the wrinkles over time. Lifecell is offered as a 30 day free trial and then you will be charged for the full purchase which is $189. It is pricey, but there’s nothing quite like it! It’s very effective at smoothing out eye wrinkles as well and can be used on the eyelids. South Beach Skin Care is the manufacturer of Lifecell and they’ve been in business for a long time and they have a 60 day money back guarantee so if you’re unsatisfied you can send it back with no issues, and no, I’m not an investor in Lifecell. I do have a few reviews for Dr. Perricone, one is the Chia Serum if you’d like to read it; it is recommended for very dry skin. Kollagen Intensiv is a very solid second choice if you’d like to compare with the Lifecell. Please let me know if you have any more questions. :)

    Hi Rachel,
    Have you heard of NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment, and a day cream called NeriumAD Age-Defying Day Cream that complements their night cream from a new company, Nerium International, out a couple years. One bottle of Night Cream is $80 plus $10 s/h and tax which brings it to about $98.
    I went to Amazon to check out Revitol and it had a 1 1/2 star review – people complaining that they didn’t get a product in the bottle displayed and that they were having all kinds of issues w/ the product – face breaking out, huge red lumps….
    I’m wondering if RVTL Anti-Aging Cream and Equinox Instant Wrinkle Reducer have gotten so much publicity that the product has changed from high demand?????

      Hi Eileen,

      Thanks for the tip. I’ll check into Nerium AD. One thing I’ve noticed about skincare products sold on Amazon is that lots of times, they’re counterfeit products, not the real thing. So I wouldn’t necessarily hold Amazon comments about odd looking jars and strange looking contents against the actual product.

    I’m 57 and have had very few wrinkles but now I’m noticing wrinkes around my mouth – not so much pruny lips but ‘brackets’ from my nose to my chin and kind of ‘sunken’ spots near my chin. My husband says it’s just a normal thing for aging and that I should just accept it but it’s hard to just let it happen. What would you recommend?

    Hi Rachel,
    i’am actually looking for a product for my mom. She insists on having Botox but to me that is just ridiculous especially because of the risk factors. Well I came to a website that mentioned these two products(Aura Vie Skin Care, Kollagen Intensiv) and was wondering if you knew what the side effects would be if you stopped using these products? I ask now because I tried finding numerous websites about these products and had gotten different answers. Also per say you only wanted to try them do you have to cancel in less then 10 days or the companies automatically charge you $90.00 than an additional charge of what the product costs? Sorry for all the questions as my mom would say “it’s always better to be safe than sorry”. Plus as a daughter I just want her to feel better about her self(like every mom should). Also I just wanted to say thank you for reviewing these products it’s going to save me a lot of money in the near future!

      Hey Farrah,
      Thanks for your comment! As far as using Kollagen Intensiv with Auravie, there is no link to using them together to get great results. Using Kollagen Intensiv is just fine, and will produce the results you are looking for, as well as no side effects. How old is your mom? Also, is she looking for a moisturizing product that helps smooth away wrinkles, or something a little bit lighter on the skin that acts as an all around beauty product? If it’s the former, I would say that Kollagen Intensiv is right for her. If it’s the latter, than I would recommend Lifecell. Let me know if you have any other questions, good luck!

    Hi Rachel,

    got it! thanks sooo much for the pix and the answer.. I love this product! I have use it now for 10 days, I haven’t seen an extreme changes but I do feel my skin is softer, usually I have some rough feel on my chin, now it’s smooth.. :)

    I haven’t seen any changes on my eyes and on my “smile line” but I will continue using it coz I realize no cream works as magic.. it takes time… but do appreciate your review…

    Hi Rachel,

    after reading your blog, I am convinced to try Lifecell and just have tried it for 3 days now ( I use it night and day).
    I just want to make sure that I am using the right amount.
    it is written on the direction that the amount needed every application is much as a dime size, but since it’s a cream type, kinda difficult for me to judge if it’s already enough.
    when they refer to “dime size” should I flatten the cream to get the size of I just squeeze and not flatten it?

    I know it’s kinda funny question.:( but I just want it to work well with the right application.

    Thanks before hands for your reply.

      Hi Anastasia,
      Thanks for your comment. It shouldn’t be literally the “shape” of a dime, but when you squeeze it out it should basically be the circumference of a dime. Here is a picture I just took, hopefully it comes out good:

      Hi Moji,
      I have never triedthe Obagi Nu-Derm products but maybe I can add them to my list of products to review. Life Cell remains to be my most effective product, I use it daily with great results. It works to fill in the existing wrinkles you have which gives your face an overall smooth appearance. I have some wrinkles on my forehead and when I smooth on the Life Cell, it literally fills in the wrinkles while nourishing your skin to prevent further wrinkles and creates a nice base to apply your make up. No other moisturizer I have used has the same effect that Life Cell does. It fills in the wrinkle so that the shadow that creates the wrinkle is more subtle. It has also reduced the hyper-pigmentation along my jaw line. You can also use Life Cell underneath and around your eye and it’s very soothing. Please let me know how it works for you if you decide to try it. Thank you for writing, Rachel

    can you specify what you are using for peeling … at which frequency ?

    I believe peeling is also important to let your skin breathe and to increase the soaking capacity of the dermal layers

    Hello Rachel,

    Reading from the reviews & untiring efforts to surf the net & find solution to my concerns, I finally decided to go for Lifecell. Im in my mid-40’s & my primary concern Rachel is wrinkles I developed underneath my eyes & the appearance of crow’s feet as we may call it.Also, in my neck area, I begin to notice skin sagging & some wrinkles nearest to “turtle neck appearance”. May I just confirm if Lifecell will be able to address my two concerns or you may suggest another cream for neck wrinkles? I’ve come across also of Delfogo V-Covery Neck Cream. Any helpful information about this product? I don’t have credit card on hand for now.Do you have any other means I can purchase Lifecell?How much will it cost me & shipping/handling? Hoping to hear from you Rachel. Thanks alot & more power!

      Hey Janet,
      I also just turned 40 in April and I continue to rank Lifecell as my favorite moisturizer. I have been using Lifecell for over 8 months and I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in fine lines and wrinkes around my eyes, and it has also dramatically reduced hyper-pigmentation along my jawline. Lifecell is unique in that it works not only to prevent wrinkles, but also works as a filler to smooth out any wrinkles you might already have, reducing their appearance and providing a nice, smooth palette to apply your make up. I also smooth Lifecell onto my neck and chest and it has the same smoothing effect. I highly recommend using Lifecell twice a day as part of your beauty ritual. Unfortunately, the only other way I know that you can order Lifecell is with a debit or gift card. Sorry!

      Thanks for your message, I have also used Lifecell for about a year now, and what I do for sunscreen is use a foundation with an SPF of 15 (I’m currently using MAC but sometimes use Estee Lauder). SPF is important and unfortunately Lifecell does not have it. If you feel like your wrinkles show only after you put make up on, you may need to use a foundation for normal/combination skin, and make sure you’re not using a foundation that is oil free as it may just be too dry for your face.

      Your foundation should feel nice over Lifecell, not make your wrinkles pop. I think you need to try some new foundations with an spf to feel great and get the sun protection you need. I would recommend Estee Lauder’s Futurist Age Resisting foundation which has an spf of 15 and continue to use Lifecell underneath.

      all the best,

    Rachel, I am very interested in the Life cell but was also wondering if you ever heard of or did any research on Derma pure+ kollagen intensive/ it is suppose to do WONDERS in just a couple weeks (14days) In fact I would like you to see if you have not already the before and after along with the story “url removed”. I have been doing a very long extensive search for whats the best and have tries so much that I thought would work> I still get carded sometimes (age 33) but all I see are wrinkles that I want gone or at the very best reduced in a very big way. Please get back to me on what you think. i do appreciate all the time and effort you have put into helping all of us. Thank you!!!!!

      Hey Amber,
      I have looked into that, and believe me when I tell you, the story on that page is completely untrue. Go back to the link you sent me and scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see the following disclaimer: *The story depicted on this site and the person depicted in the story are not real. rather this story is based on the results that some people who have used these products have achieved. The results portrayed in the story and in the comments are illustrative and may not be the results that you achieve with these products. The depictions on this page are fictitious and indicitive of potential results. Actual results may vary.”

      Lifecell, in my opinion, is one of the most effective for both wrinkles and skin discoloration. At the very least I would give it a shot and see what it can do for you. IT might be expensive, but it really does work as 5 products in one, and you can make it last a long time. Hope this helps ad let me know if you have any other questions!

    We must have been typing at the same time. Thanks for your input. HA is Hyaluronic Acid and it’s produced by the body to moistuize your skin, but as we age it decreases causing wrinkles. So using it on your face is supposed to enhance your skin’s abilty to retain moisture. Anyway, I appreciate your advice!

    I am 43, and started using pure HA a couple of nights ago around my eyes, and I now have 100x more wrinkles than I did when I started. As I’m freaking out trying to find the right cream to fix this disater, I found your site and it has been very helpful! Thank you! I’m having trouble deciding between LifeCell and Kollagen Intensive. I have very sensitive skin, and my eye area is really my only issue so far. What would you recommend? Have you heard that either of these can cause skin irritations? I’d also be interested to know if either are paraben free. Thanks for your help!

      I’m not sure what HA is, does it have glycolic? I recommend LifeCell…it will instantly smooth and fill wrinkles and is gentle enough to use under your eyes, on eyelids, and even all over your lips to smooth and decrease the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Kollagen Intensive is a great product also, but it is a collagen booster and is more of a moisturizer.

      Lifecell is a moisturizer as well but does more to reduce the look of wrinkles and it works instantly. I asked about the glycolic because I have a face wash that contains glycolic and every time I use it, it seems to accentuate the wrinkles because it is drying – I don’t like it it’s not gentle enough. Good luck and I know Life cell is a bit pricey, but I’ve been using it 6 months and I’ve had great results. I also have hyper-pigmentation around my jawline and it’s lightened it dramatically and reduced wrinkles.

      It just feels good on your face, and has instant results, so to me, that it worth it. We only have one face, and we owe it to ourselves to splurge on it!

      Hope this helps,

    Hi Rachel,

    This may sounds funny but I need first to let you know that I am a man and not a woman. I was surfing about wrinkle reducers and I end up on your website.

    I really think that there are 10 times more products for women than for men and honestly I don’t see why those products formulated for women wouldn’t work for men. After all, a man is a human being as much as a woman and I don’t think that the science is at that stage for being able to make a difference within the genre. The major breakthroughs are still news in the coming years, and it’s very exciting to be kept informed by knowledgeable people like you (thanks).

    Meanwhile, I need you to know that I am originally from Paris and I’ve been growing up there for almost 30 years and now I’ve been living in California for 15 years. During decades I used femal products for my skin like Lierac “Lipofilling” and “Hydra-Chrono”, L’Oreal “Revitalift”, Dior “Capture R60/80″ or Roc “Retinol Triple Action” and with a good antioxidant diet, exercises and a lot of water consumption I look like 30 years old for my 47.

    To make this short, I want to tell you that the day when my girlfriend offered me a present for one of our Valentine’s day, she bought from Vichy/Homme “Silicium-R” (during a travel in Brussels) a specific product for wrinkles formulated for men and I didn’t felt the product as good as those formulated for women.

    Bottom line, I was wondering what you are thinking about all this and don’t you agree that we, as men, are completely left behind. Therefore, as a conclusion, if I start using those two products (Lifecell and Kollagen Intensiv)would you agree that it will give me the same benefits to me as much it would give those benefits to a woman?

    Thanks a lot for reading me.

      Hey Marjan,
      First off, got your message about last name, removed it. Secondly, thanks for your kind words about the site. I have been working hard on specifically creating a section dedicated to men’s wrinkle creams, and yes, you are correct there are way too many skin creams solely for women.

      Lifecell alone works great for wrinkles in men, and I truly do believe that you would get the same benefits that a woman has. I know this because my husband of 6 years has also been using it and it has worked wonders for him as well. Kollagen intensiv works great as well in a cold weather climate. I say this because it acts more like a moisturizer than Lifecell.

      Using Lifecell and Kollagen intensiv combined could work very well. I use both daily and it has taken years off of my face. You of course have to use them for a few months to see the best results, but once you do you will continue using them.

      Keep checking back for when we announce our men’s wrinkle cream section. Thanks again for writing!

Question, would you say that Life Cell and Kollagen Intensive are much better products than Nue Science? Which would you recommend?

      admin March 1, 2012 at 12:30 am - Reply

      Hey Monique,

      Thanks for the message, and I’m happy to hear someone recommended my site to you! Lifecell and Kollagen Intensiv are my two favorite products, but depending upon what your concerns are with your skin, and what you can afford, I’ll explain why I like each and why. Lifecell is an awesome product, it lightens dark pigmentation spots, fills and decreases fine lines and wrinkles, and goes on lightweight and is not greasy or heavy at all. I use this product on a daily basis morning and night and have for about 6 months now.

      It has made a noticeable improvement in my skin tone, fine lines and hyper-pigmentation along my jawline. It is more pricey than Kollagen Intensive but well worth the price. If your main concern is more of a need for moisture, and price is an issue, then Kollagen Intensiv is a great second choice. It’s lightweight, non greasy, and works to moisturize your skin by boosting collagen. It instantly moisturizes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles and make up smooths over it nicely.

      Sometimes I alternate between the two products but I mostly use Lifecell. Nue Science wasn’t a bad product, I liked the serum and I liked the fact that the moisturizer had a 30 spf (Lifecell and Kollagen do not have an spf) but I didn’t like using it on a daily basis or at night with an spf (why use spf when you’re sleeping? why add chemicals to your face at night?). I didn’t like the feel of the Nue Science moisturizer as much either, it just wasn’t as smooth. I recommend Lifecell and Kollagen Intensive as my #1 and #2 choices. Hope this helps, and feel free to ask any more questions you have.

      I would use a little bit of Kollagen Intensiv first, because of the moisturizing effect and it sinks in a little deeper. And then use the Lifecell on top for the filling effects. However, If you want to use one in the morning and one at night, I would recommend using life cell in the morning because of its nice smoothing effect, and Kollagen Intensiv at night for its deep moisturizing and collagen boosting properties. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions!

      No problem. As far as alternating, I would say if you live in a cold climate where your skin scan get dry very easily, go with the collagen intensive. If you live in a warm climate, go with the life cell. No need to alternate them otherwise. Hope this helps!

      Hey Annaliza,
      Yes, it is quite expensive at about $189 for a 2 month supply. But when you really break it down, it’s only about 3 bucks a day, and when you consider how much we spend on moisturizers, toners, eye creams, wrinkle creams, and firming creams, when Lifecell does all of this, it really is alot cheaper than you think. Plus, you can try it out for a few weeks, if you don’t like it you can just send it back and there is no charge. It’s well worth it ladies, trust me!

    can you used Kollagen and life cell together, and if so, what is the best order to use them?

      You can most certainly do that, and I actually recommend it. Kollagen acts more like a moisturizer, and lifecell works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

    Dear Rachel,

    I am a 51-year old Persian woman from Sacramento, California. Thank you so much for your reviews. I actually tried the Nue Science Skin Renewal 14-day trial and have been a customer from Atzen (which I discontinued to use) since 2005. Atzen had been recommended by a friend of mine (who was one of the sellers) but now I have been trying other products and found your website. I just placed the order for Lifecell wrinkle package (30-day trial). Since the package includes just the cream, I was wondering whether you could recommend any toner, cleanser and sun block cremes for my skin. I could send you pictures of my face and you could take a look which (in your experience) fits best. My skin looks similar to yours, and your life-long experience in this skin-revival business is really helpful. I have very dry skin, and have pigments around my lips. Thanks so much for your insight and I am looking forward to hearing back from you. Best wishes and a merry Christmas. Zari

      Dear Zari,
      Thank you for your message. I’m not familiar with Atzen but it sounds like it’s no longer working for you from what you’ve explained. For me, Lifecell has significantly reduced the hyper pigmentation along my jawline more than any other product and works great to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, especially around my eyes and forehead. I also have to be very careful with sun, as I live in Florida and I’m in the sun every weekend. I use a 50 spf creamy foundation when I go out in the sun (I play volleyball so I need something that will stick to my face and last for hours). I will send you the name of it when I get home, I am traveling right now. I think you will like the Lifecell and after a month you will really notice a difference. It smooths out all my wrinkles and feels very nice on my face. It’s moisturizing but it’s not oily at all. I use it in the morning and at night before I go to bed.

      I am in the process of trying to find a variety of toners to try and do reviews on. I am currently still using my NueScience toner since I had some left on the free trial and it works nicely and is not drying. As far as facial cleaners, I’m still trying to find one I love. Currently I’m using DDF 5% glycolic face wash, which can help with exfoliation and help with the pigmentation, but it is too drying for my face.

      If you feel the Lifecell is not moisturizing enough, I would suggest trying Kollagen Intensive. This is also one of my top choices for moisturizers. It’s a collagen booster so it plumps up your skin and you can also use it under your eyes. Good luck and let me know how the Lifecell works for you.

      Take care, Rachel

    Hi Fan,

    Thanks for your question. I am also 40 and I have found my favorite product in Lifecell. It is a unique product and works like no other face moisturizer. It actually fills in the fine lines and wrinkles in your face, without feeling heavy or greasy at all, and gives your face a smooth and plump texture. It is also good for using around your mouth and is gentle enough to use on your eyes and even your eyelids (I have very sensitive eyelids and it doesn’t sting or burn but is very mild and not overly fragrant).

    I use it in the morning and at night before bed. It is also really good for hyper-pigmentation. I have some along my jawline from being in the sun and it has reduced those dramatically. I have been using Lifecell now for about one year. I try other products in between, for reviews on the site, and nothing I try works as well. It feels very nice going on and has a nice texture.You will feel the results the first time you try it, and make up goes on nicely over it. Please give it a try and let me know how it works for you. And let me know if you have any other questions.

    You will not be disappointed with Lifecell, and if you don’t like it for any reason the company will allow you to return the product within 30 days.

    Take care and good luck!
