My Top 5 Favorite Moisturizers

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

View Moisturize 911 on Posh

posh favorites Moisturize 911Caffeinated face cream for an energized complexion, with Vitamin C.

Price: $20

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!

New Product!

Cann I Be – Full Spectrum Topical CBD Oil

Price: $42 (you only need a few drops so this bottle will last a long time)

View Cann I Be on Posh

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

View Never Grow Up on Posh

Perfectly Posh Never Grow Up CreamAntioxidant-loaded, daily face moisturizer.

Price: $24

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

beautycounter countermatch reviewsRead my personal review of Countermatch 

View Countermatch Adaptive Lotion on Beautycounter

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. 

Price: $49 

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

View Defiant Gimme a Boost on Posh

posh defiant gimme a boost for dry skinForget your age with this moringa oil moisturizer for dry skin!

Price: $40

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.

Both of these creams pair perfectly by first using the BFF Exfoliator and/or the Set the Tone Balancing Toner.

5. Kollagen Intensiv

kollagen intensiv best wrinkle creamRead My Personal Review of Kollagen Intensiv

 Visit Kollagen Intensiv’s Official Website

Price: $59.95

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Q: is there a review for ReviveDerma -sharyne

A: Sharyne, avoid Revive Derma like the plague, it's a scam. I just went to their website and read the 1 mile long terms and conditions, arbitration waivers, class action lawsuit waivers, all this you must agree to to order the "10 day free trial + 4 days shipping" product. They will bill you $89.95 on the 14th day. I found typos throughout, and where they give their hours of operation where naturally a phone number would be, there was none. No list of ingredients, etc. It has all the indicators of every other short-term wrinkle cream I come across daily. You're smart to ask! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Has anyone 73 years old used any of these products? If so which one? Thanks! Glad you wrote about all the scams# -Anna Maria

A: Anna Maria, hopefully some others will chime in to answer your question, but I will say that I feel like most of the women who email me about Lifecell are mostly over 50, with most probably being in their 60's or 70's. It's really a product that is best suited for someone who is in need of an advanced wrinkle treatment since it has a "filler" quality as well as anti-aging benefits. I think it would be great for someone your age. My mother in law also uses it and loves it, she's 62, and my mother as well, she's 67. However, I'm 43 and it's definitely a remarkable product for my skin as well. I'm getting fine lines around my eyes, and also on my neck and chest and it helps to camouflage them. Thanks for your question!  Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Never bought online but did with SkinCompleRx trial and was told by friend that they will send you full amount with full price after you try it automatically cause they have your credit card info. Is that true should I return it before using? It said site discontinued now already! Do you know about this sort of thing? -kat

A: Kat, this is one of those short term wrinkle cream scams I write about. Once people catch on, they flip to links to different creams, so that's why it disappeared. You should call right away and cancel. They will probably be charging you full price on the 12th or 14th day (day 1 is the day you order) so keep a close eye on your credit card statement. All these scams run about $93. I can't find anything under the name "SkinCompleRx" Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Pls recommend the best scrub n face serum to clear face blemishes n hyperpigmentation. Thks -Chrissy

A: Hi Chrissy, sorry I'm so late getting back to you. I've been on the road and got a little backed up. I had really good results from Lifecell for the hyper pigmentation along my jaw line and it's not a heavy formula so shouldn't cause breakouts.  Are your dark spots from acne scarring or the sun? Either way it would help. I would also recommend using Skinceptions AHA Toner to help clear up your blemishes and for a good exfoliation. It's a very gentle blend of fruit acids (alphahydroxy's) so it won't strip your skin. You still need moisture even if you have acne because if you strip your skin of its essential oils, your skin will compensate by overproducing oil and that may cause more blemishes. What else have you tried for your acne? Let me know if you have more questions. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

    What do you think about Strivectin products? I am over 50, and am noticing more and more wrinkles around my upper lip and mouth.

      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Stephanie, I have not used Strivectrin but know it’s pricey. Lifecell Anti-aging Treatment works great for all wrinkles and lines and can be used as a lip and eye treatment as well. It gives an instant effect because it works as a wrinkle filler as well as having some very effective anti-aging ingredients to reverse aging. Definitely worth it! My sister and I both love it. She is a pro makeup artist and uses it on all her brides and mother of the brides before applying their makeup. Instantly smooth faces! Good luck and thanks for your comment! Rachel

    • Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Melinda, it’s tough to find completely organic products, but Nourish Organics is a great line if you want to be 100% USDA Organic. They use a lot of argan oil, apricot extract etc. My top cream, Lifecell, while it’s not “organic” it doesn’t use any harsh chemicals, parabens or pthalates (no fragrance). Here is a a picture of Lifecell’s ingredients. I’ve done individual searches of every ingredient within and none of them are toxic or harmful and they do not test on animals – 100% cruelty free. Same goes for Kollagen Intensiv, my #2 cream, here is Kollagen Intensiv’s ingredients. Most of the ingredients in both are plant derived. I consider them both very safe and effective. For me personally, I have no problem with ingredients reproduced in a lab (even if I can’t pronounce them), if I look them up and do research and see where they are on the scale of being safe. 😉 And I feel they work better than some of the 100% organic products, although I do love Argan Oil for the body and hair. Not so much for my face unless I’m feeling really dry. Hope that helps. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

  • Jennifer

    Hi Rachel,
    I have dry and sensitive skin. I’m 44 and starting to see fine lines around my eyes and eye lids. I know your favorite product is Lifecell but have also seen you recommend Kollagen Intensiv for dry skin. I’m not sure which would be best for me … what would you suggest? Jenn

  • Andrea Hadley

    All the wrinkles cream described by you are really good. I am using Kollagen Intensive and PureLx Perfection Anti – Aging Cream. Both Creams are good and best suited for my skin.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Andrea, thanks for your comment. I’m so happy you’re enjoying the Kollagen Intensiv and found a good routine that works for you. If you want to boost your anti-aging results with the Kollagen Intensiv, try pairing it with the Skinception AHA toner. I wrote an article about it after trying both together.

      Hi Jewell, thanks for your question. This is a hard area to treat but I feel the best combination is a firming cream and upper body exercises to tone and tighten. My favorite firming body butter is made by Lifecell. The issue is, they don’t seem to sell it directly! If you purchase Lifecell, they send it for free every 60 days with my anti aging treatment. In fact, they send me a ton of free stuff with every shipment i.e. face wash, eye gel, spf moisturizer, and the firming body butter. So, if you need a good anti-ager for your face, I would recommend signing up for Lifecell so you get all the free goodies every 60 days. Let me know if you have questions.

    Hi Rachel,

    I’m turning 60 next month August. Having watched the LifeCell infomercials for almost a year, I finally ordered LifeCell about 4 months ago. I decided to try out the free trial and was very pleased with the results. I agree with you when you say the product DOES WORK. I mainly notice the difference on my face, but I feel my neck needed a bit more attention. I’m ‘starting’ to get under my chin the turkey gobbler, sagging, lines and wrinkles. While researching LifeCell I also watched infomercials for Dr. Perricone’s products. Recently I ordered the Dr. Perricone introductory Basic Kit which included: Cold Plasma Sub-D and High Potency Amine Face Lift. As a bonus they also sent me their Blue Plasma and Blue Plasma Orbital. The Cold Plasma Sub-D swears to tighten sagging under the neck, chin and décolletage area. My question is: Can I use the Dr. Perricone products with the LifeCell All In One Anti-Aging Treatment? Will one’s ingredient affect or dilute the other’s benefits? or do they work well together? Thank you Rachel.

    ~Joann

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Joann, thanks for your feedback and I’m so happy you are enjoying the results from Lifecell! I use it on my face, neck and chest every time I apply. Sometimes I’ll use other products on my neck to see if I see any better tightening but Lifecell seems to work just as good for tightening as it does for smoothing. If you like those other products, maybe just use them at night and alternate with the Lifecell. The only thing I usually combine with Lifecell is an spf which I apply over it (you want the Lifecell to absorb first for the anti-aging benefits). I would use the Perricone products separately on your neck and decolletage areas and see how you like them.

    Hi Sher! Thanks for your question. Both my mom and my mother in law are your age and I have them both using Lifecell. Lifecell is an anti-aging wrinkle cream that will even out your skin tone, reducing redness and reducing brown spots, and it works to “fill in” wrinkles making them much less noticeable while lifting and firming. It is THE best for a woman your age. And if you don’t like to wear lots of makeup, this will make your face look smooth so you won’t feel the need. You can even use it on your eyes as it’s also an under eye treatment (I even use it on my eyelids – that should tell you how gentle and non irritating it is). It really works like no other cream I’ve ever used and I highly recommend it. Let me know if you have any specific questions about the product.

      Hi Liz, I’m a big fan of doing regular sugar scrubs for my body and then using avocado oil or coconut oil all over – they are both wonderful for the whole body, nails, and hair! As for your face, if you are crepey, I would give Kollagen Intensiv a try as it really encourages the boosting of your own collagen production and plumps up everything. I use it on face, neck and chest always! You should always treat those three areas the same as your face.

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.. 🙂

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      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!

    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!

      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.

    Hi Rachel,

    Would like to know if the three wrinkle products are available in Montreal Canada.

    Which one of the three products will be more effective for women over 70, or none is recommended . Thanks,

      Hi Sonia, all three of my top wrinkle creams are available in Canada. I would recommend Lifecell for you, it’s the best for smoothing wrinkles and removing dark spots. 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. Thanks for your comment!

    Hello,

    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 /

    Thank You,

      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?????

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Williams

      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?

  • Farrah

    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!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      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…

    take care,

    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.

    Best,

      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 Rachel,
    I have been using the OBAGI NU-DERM products, what are your thoughts on this product? Also, what product would work to reduce the laugh lines? Would the Life Cell reduce the laugh lines?

    Thanks,
    Moji

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      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

  • Tansel

    Dear 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!

      Regards,
      Rachel

    Hi- I’m 22 years old and am looking for face products. I have slight wrinkles on the forehead and around the eye. I am interested in lifecell / kollagen for face and revitol / syringe shaped eye cream which combinition would be best for me? My skin is pretty normal. Any help is appreciated.

    Rachel,

    I am fifty and have been using Life Cell for quite awhile(atleast a year). I guess I am not getting the results that you are. I have wrinkle especially under my eyes, etc. I noticed that you said that Kollagen worked well as a mosturizer, BUT what about a good moisturizer for daytime with sunscreen. Life cell seems to work well till I use makeup and then the wrinkles really show up on my face…any suggestions…Help…:-~ Gwen

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      Gwen,

      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!!!!!

    Rachel,

    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!

    Hi Rachel,

    I found the ingredients list (finally) for Kollagen Intensiv and it IS paraben-free. Just thought I’d save you the trouble. Can’t find a list for LifeCell.

    Ashley

  • Ashley

    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!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      Ashley,
      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!

    Hi Rachel,

    I am constantly looking for products for my face. I believe I spend more time researching and comparing than buying. Someone recommended that I view this website for help in choosing a product. Question, would you say that Life Cell and Kollagen Intensive are much better products than Nue Science? Which would you recommend?

    Thanks,

    Monique

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      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.

      Thanks,

      Rachel

    Hi Rachel,
    Have you reviewed the Deramgist products? I would love to see a review on those products. I have searched high and low and no one has posted any reviews about the products, only the company. They guarantee to dramatically reduce wrinkles and sagging. Would you be willing to review it if you haven’t already?

    In using a combined approach (both kollagen intensiv and life cell together), what is the best order to use both products effectively for max results or does it matter? Thanks!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      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!

      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

    • Rachel Vrabel
      admin

      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

    I did a search for turkey neck” and found only some not so helpful reviews from 2012. Has anyone out there 50+ found something that helps quickly with this? I’m tired of looking like a gobbler!

      Tess, all you can do is try to firm it up and keep your neck area very hydrated. I use Lifecell on my face, neck and chest. It contains DMAE which is a tightening agent. You could give it a try. You could also pair it with an AHA (alphahydroxy) toner which will help increase cell turnover and also allow your anti aging treatment to penetrate more deeply. I use Skinception AHA Toner. It works great but it’s also gentle, no burning. Kollagen Intensiv pairs really nicely with this toner. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com
