You’ll Love my Favorites!
Let’s face it ladies, you’ve probably gone through hundreds of jars and pumps of anti-aging products with a similar promise…to reduce or even eliminate wrinkles.
While a good moisturizer won’t “erase” wrinkles altogether (don’t we wish), they can definitely help you look younger by softening and plumping, improve the overall texture of the skin, and lighten those dark spots!
Having a bright, even skin tone is THE #1 thing that helps us look younger – that’s why I love Vitamin C and antioxidants in skin care and ALL of my favorite moisturizers have it.
I have several favorites I’d like to share that I use on a consistent basis and enjoy using. I have sensitive, maturing skin that is often dehydrated and I battle with hyper-pigmentation and dark spots.
I love moisturizers that hydrate without leaving me feeling greasy which feel fabulous underneath my foundation! You should ENJOY using your skin care, and I enjoy using all of these!
What Makes My Favorite Moisturizers Stand Out?
- Long Term and Immediate Benefits
- Quality, Strength and Effectiveness of Ingredients
- My personal experience and enjoyment using these products
- Reputation of manufacturer/customer service
- Good for all skin types, even sensitive skin
- Cruelty-free, no animal testing!
- No harmful chemicals like parabens, phthalates or petroleums
1. Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion
Be sure to check out my Top 10 Beautycounter Favorites here!
Plant based, clean beauty at its best and suitable for all skin types, both day and night.
Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion is lightweight and helps the skin adapt to varying conditions by adjusting hydration and oxygen levels as you need it. And quite simply, it feels amazing on the skin!
Breakthrough Bio-Mimic Technology captures the unique life-giving properties of plants to exactly match the structure of skin, giving it precisely what it needs and nothing it doesn’t.
Countermatch gives me the perfect amount of hydration with its smooth silky feel and light, natural smell (no added fragrance), smooths wrinkles, eases redness, and my face doesn’t get shiny going from a freezing cold office, to the humid outdoors of South Florida.
It feels protective and is great for cold climates or indoors where winter heat can dry your skin out.
I’ve used this lotion on and off for the past two years and I always come back to it! I love that it comes in a pump to preserve its freshness (no dipping your fingers in a tub) and easy to pack.
Beautycounter’s mission is one of safer skin care: they simply do not use ANY toxic ingredients. They adhere to a Never List of ingredients and they never test on animals.
Caffeinated face cream for an energized complexion, with Vitamin C.
The Posh Moisturize 911 cream is one of their best sellers and is a fantastic moisturizer at a GREAT price point. Finding a $20 product that I love this much does not happen often!
Perfect for normal/combo and oily skin types who crave hydration over oils in a water-based, vegan formula.
What makes it special is that it contains caffeine which immediately tightens the skin and vitamin C to lighten, brighten and hydrate. Soothing aloe and citrus essential oils also promote a radiant complexion.
I also love using the Moisture 911 cream on my neck and décolletage because I could sure use some tightening in those areas especially!
While the 911 can be used just on its own as a daily moisturizer, I really enjoyed the added benefit of mixing a few drops of the Posh Cann I Be oil with it.
3. Cann I Be – Full Spectrum Topical CBD Oil
Price: $42 (you only need a few drops so this bottle will last a long time)
It’s easy to use, you just mix 4-5 drops of the Cann I Be with a little bit of the Moisture 911 and rub it together and just apply like any other moisturizer.
What surprised me most about this combo was how it SHRUNK my nose pores to be almost nonexistent. CBD has anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties and it’s also great for acne prone skin. It gave my skin an added boost of moisture with no shine and helped with redness.
I’m a huge fan of CBD, but I don’t take the Cann I Be orally, I take this CBD Oil at night before bed.
While Cann I Be is a full spectrum hemp oil and is food grade (so safe for human consumption), it’s strength is better suited and is targeted towards topical skin care use. It definitely adds something special to an overall pampering and relaxing feel!
Cann I Be is a fabulous product you can use to enhance any Posh face or body products. I also love mixing it with the Fresh Creamy Milk Body Butter.
4. Perfectly Posh – Never Grow Up
Antioxidant-loaded, daily face moisturizer.
Behold the Posh Never Grow Up Face Cream with Vitamin B & C!
This cream is great for dry skin and provides lasting moisture with aloe vera, coconut water and olive oil in a Shea butter, vegan base.
But don’t let the fact that it’s great for dry skin fool you into thinking it’s got a heavy feel, it doesn’t feel heavy or leave you with a shiny face!
Never Grow up contains 20 botanical extracts and 4 botanical oils to fight free radicals and prevent signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone.
It’s packed with Vitamin C which lightens and brightens the skin and has a light coconut and vanilla scent.
This cream has a soothing, protective feel that works quickly to plump and hydrate. It’s GREAT for an everyday moisturizer for all skin types, but especially for those who need some extra hydration.
5. Kollagen Intensiv
Something I’ve used on and off for years is Kollagen Intensiv, which was developed by researchers in Switzerland and is made by Skinception.
Kollagen Instensiv contains a unique patented peptide, SYN®COL and is proven in clinical trials to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by 354%! Not many creams back up their claims with clinical trials.
Kollagen Intensiv boosts collagen levels in your skin, improves elasticity, reduces redness and diminishes hyper-pigmentation.
It’s a multi-purpose anti-aging treatment cream that works quickly and effectively to give you a more youthful look to your face, eyes, neck and chest.
Loss of collagen in the skin is what causes wrinkles, and our ability to produce collagen declines quickly with age.
I am in my 40’s, and a loss of collagen and “plumpness” is the change I’ve noticed most in my skin over the past 5 years, so putting back lost collagen has become a priority for me and this cream makes a real difference.
Kollagen Intensiv is silky-feeling hydrating cream which absorbs nicely without feeling to rich or too heavy. It simply feels amazing on the the skin!
It has a light, natural smell and contains no harsh ingredients or fragrances- it’s a great choice for aging, dry, sensitive skin, or rosacea.
Compared to a lot of other anti-wrinkle creams I have tried, this one gives me the right balance of moisture, plumpness, and gives my skin the perfect balance to apply my makeup.

Thank you Rachel!
Beautycounter does an outstanding job at smoothing wrinkles, I went for the Countermatch cream. I'm 54 and I really notice a big difference, my skin is much smoother when I use it and putting on foundation just looks better all around. The cream is gentle and has a nice slip to it. Thanks for the rec!
Before using Kollagen skin cream, I always doubted if it really worked for those who allegedly changed their lives after using it. This was, I suppose, mainly because I had tried almost everything I could to do away with those ugly marks on my face. Thankfully, I was motivated after reading some unbelievable reviews by some users and decided to give it a try. I love it!
Countermatch Cream cleanser
Hi! I know it's not on your top list (maybe you have a different section for skin cleansers?) but I LOVE the Beautycounter Countermatch Pure Cleansing Milk - it feels great going on and leaves my skin so supple. I follow with the Countermatch lotion. My skin has turned around for the better.
Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment
This is just awesome. It starts working from the beginning. Also, it works instantly. Love it!
Best line for my skin ever! I love the Radiance serum, it leaves my skin glowing! And you can't beat the Rejuvenating cream for nighttime use. I really like that these products are safe to use, no bad chemicals.
I've been using this line for several years and love all the products. My skin looks better now than it ever has. They leave your skin soft and are very gentle. I use the Countermatch collection and sometimes use the Cleansing Balm. They feel great and my face always feels silky smooth and never dry. I'm 32 and my skin has always been combination.
Kollagen Intensiv is fantastic
I just received mine a couple of weeks ago and it's really helped calm my Rosacea and give me an even tone. Love the feel of it. Very soft and absorbs well.
Kollagen for older skin
Rachel, I ordered your top cream Kollagen Intensiv two months ago, and I am really happy how it's working for me. It's softened all my wrinkles, especially around my mouth and forehead, and it feels great and reduces puffiness underneath my eyes. I just wanted to thank you for your recommendation! I really have been enjoying your blog. Thank you for suggesting good products that work! Now if you could recommend something for my flabby thighs, that would be great -ha!
Can't live without it. I've been using it 2 years and my skin looks amazing. Love, love, love these products!
Kollagen Intensiv for redness
This product really helps the redness calm in my skin. I have borderline rosacea so I need calming products that don't irritate. This is a good one to try. Love the feel of my face now it's very soft and smooth.
