You’ll Love my Top 5 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. Perfectly Posh – Moisturize 911
When you think of a youthful face, it’s tight with an even skin tone right?
Have you ever used a product with caffeine? I hadn’t, until I tried the Posh 911 Face Moisturizer and it’s fabulous!
The Posh Moisturize 911 cream is one of their best sellers and is 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.
One of my favorite routines to perk up my skin and wake up, is to use the Posh BFF Facial Exfoliator (with grapefruit and mint which perks your senses right up!) and then follow by applying the Moisturize 911 cream.
The BFF Exfoliator is something I’ve been using EVERY day no matter which cream I’m using – pure love for this one! And this combo would make ANYONE happy about a skin care routine.
I also love using the Moisture 911 cream on my neck and décolletage because those areas often get neglected and I could sure use some tightening in those areas especially!
Cann I Be – Full Spectrum Topical CBD Oil
Price: $42 (you only need a few drops so this bottle will last a long time)
Check out my Youtube Video on using the Posh Cann I Be CBD Oil with the 911 Moisturizer – this is my new FAVORITE combo, it’s working very well to soften my skin, especially the crepy skin on my neck and chest.
But who knew it would SHRINK my nose pores to be almost nonexistent? WOW! I’ve never experienced the anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties until now!
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.
2. Perfectly Posh – Never Grow Up
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 those who need some extra hydration!
This would also be a great choice to mix with the Cann I Be Topical CBD!
3. Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion
Antioxidant rich moisturizer with Bio-mimic technology that mirrors the unique life-giving properties of plants to match the structure and hydration needs of your skin.
I’ve had a love for Beautycounter products for a couple of years, and the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion is one of my faves!
It has a lightweight feel and my skin loves how soothing it is with the perfect amount of hydration for anytime use.
The Countermatch Lotion is packed with natural ingredients to nourish, plump the skin, reduce wrinkles and inflammation while adapting to your skins hydration needs throughout the day.
With ingredients like plum seed extract, Shea butter, arginine (great for tightening and building collagen), vitamins and minerals, salicylic acid (for skin cell renewal), aloe and sunflower seed oil, your skin will be getting an array of nutrition for a healthy glow!
Beautycounter is a company who’s made the biggest strides towards safe, non-toxic skincare and their products are very effective and a joy to use.
The Beautycounter Facial Oils and Masks are also gems in my opinion! I love using the Brightening Oil when my skin needs extra hydration or lightening and brightening; the charcoal face mask is the best I’ve used to shrink my pores and get a deep skin detox!
Any skin type would be well suited for the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion.
4. Perfectly Posh Defiant Gimme a Boost
The Posh Defiant Gimme a Boost Moisturizer (and entire Defiant line) is specifically formulated with more powerful anti-aging ingredients that will significantly improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and smooth and brighten an uneven skin tone.
With anti-oxidant loaded moringa and grapeseed oils, tripeptides to support younger looking skin, all whipped together in a moisturizing avocado and Shea butter base – this is what you’ll want to use if you have signs of aging you want to reverse.
There are two version of the Defiant Gimme a Boost – one for Dry Skin and one for Normal/Combo Skin. Both very powerful anti-aging moisturizers and both formulated for two unique skin types.
I happen to LOVE the Gimme a Boost for Dry Skin. I generally have dehydrated skin (despite drinking tons of water) and never have an issue with oily skin or breakouts. I’m in my mid-40’s so that generally doesn’t happen anymore! When I was in my 30’s, different story.
If your skin is more on the oily side, choose the Defiant Gimme a Boost for Normal/Combo Skin since it’s a bit lighter on the oils.
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!
Lifecell does an outstanding job at filling in wrinkles. 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. I've had the same tube of Lifecell for about 6 months because I tend to not use it every day, but I should. Thanks for the recommendation. What I did was just ordered the trial, and it billed me after 30 days (I knew it would because it is a membership), but I decided since I don't use it every day I would just cancel the membership. Their customer service was easy to reach and gave me no hassle whatsoever. Said if I wanted to resume at any time I could just call and I would be afforded the VIP reduced rate, so I'm sure I'll do that when I run out!
LifecCell Skin Cream Review
Before using LifeCell 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. Frustrated, I was presuming Lifecell to be one of those bogus skin-care fads. Thankfully, I was motivated after reading some unbelievable reviews by some users and decided to give it a try.
shea butter body
Hi! what a product! raw shea butter body lotion
Try it for sure
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 glowing serum, it leaves my skin so radiant! And you can't beat the Creme de Serum for nighttime use. I've read about the rare melon extract and the reason they use this is because all those antioxidants protect your skin from breaking down, which is how the melons last so long. That's why these products have such a good effect on the skin and all the products contain it.
Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty Skincare
I've been using this line for 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 love the Ultra Lifting and Firming Serum for daytime use, with Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules over it, and I use the Creme de Melon at night. 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 8 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.
