Top 3 Anti-Aging Creams

You’ll Love my Top 3 Favorites!

Let’s face it ladies, you’ve probably gone through hundreds of jars of anti-aging creams with a similar promise…to reduce or even eliminate wrinkles.

Over the years, I’ve likely tried hundreds of creams that have turned out to be decent moisturizers, but do little for any real anti-aging effect.

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 anti-aging creams have it.

I have several favorites I’d like to share that I’ve used for long periods of time and enjoy using.

I have sensitive, maturing skin that is often dehydrated and I battle with hyper-pigmentation and dark spots.

You should ENJOY using your skin care, and I enjoy using all of these because they work!

What Makes My Top Creams 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

Beautycounter Countermatch reviews

Read my personal review of Countermatch

View Countermatch on Beautycounter

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. Quit simply, it feels amazing on the skin! 

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), plumps and smooths wrinkles, and reduces redness.

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.

2. Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème

Vital C Hydrating Repair Cream

Read my Personal Review of the Vital C Line

Shop Image Skincare on their official Amazon Page

I’ve used Image Skincare for several years now, and they simply don’t make a bad product – and they don’t use harmful parabens! 

Image Skincare is medical grade with high concentrations of effective ingredients. Until recently, you could only purchase from a med spa or Dr.’s office. Vital C is their best selling and most popular line!

And the truth is, I have many favorites, and you’ll see many Image Skincare products featured on Women’s Blog Talk as top recommended products, all well deserved!

But as far as a daily anti-aging moisturizer that is great for all skin types, I could recommend this cream to anyone and they’d do backflips out of sheer happiness for how good their skin will feel and look.

  • Calms redness and irritation
  • Supports collagen synthesis and cell renewal
  • Nourishes and provides antioxidant protection
  • Intensely hydrates and provides lasting moisture

The Vital C Hydrating Repair Creme is packed full of powerful antioxidants. Formulated with high concentrations of Vitamins A, C, and E, this is a  daily moisturizer that nourishes and protects the skin for daily anti-aging benefits while promoting cell renewal.

The Vital C line is made for all skin types, dry/dehydrated, sensitive/rosacea, sun damaged/sun burned, oily/acne, Eczema, and post treatment skin.

3. Perfectly Posh – Moisturize 911 + Cann I Be CBD

posh favorites Moisturize 911

View Moisturize 911 on Posh

View Cann I Be on Posh

Caffeinated face cream with Vitamin C for an energized complexion.

The Posh Moisturize 911 cream is one of their best sellers and is a fantastic moisturizer at a GREAT price point.

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.

While the Moisture 911 can be used just on its own as a daily moisturizer, I use it by mixing a few drops of the Posh Cann I Be CBD oil with it.

Posh Moisturize 911

CBD is AMAZING for your skin. 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, cut the redness, and SHRUNK my nose pores!

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.

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! It takes your pampering and relaxation to a whole new level!

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!

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.

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.

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!

User Questions and Answers



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

Q: What about Retinal? Do you recommecd -Dianna

A: Hi Dianna, retinol is great in the right strength. I've never used prescription retinol where it's a very high percentage because it's too strong for me.  My top cream, Kollagen Intensiv, has a little bit of retinol (Vitamin A) at a lower concentration so it's still a very calming cream but you get some of the benefits of having retinol in it without the side effects like peeling, sensitive skin. You can read more about the advantages of Retinol in skincare here. ~Rachel

A: Denise, thanks for your question. All three of my top 3 recommendations are made with sensitive skin in mind. They are all very hydrating, gentle and do not contain any harsh chemicals. You would probably do best with Kollagen Intensiv, my #1 choice. It's a great choice. It's going to build collagen and elastin and give you a good amount of moisture.  Rachel

Q: Can I use Illuminatural 6i Skin Lightener under Kollagen Intensiv? -Deborah

A: Hi Deborah, you absolutely can use Illuminatural underneath Kollagen Intensiv, in fact it's a great combo. You can just use the Illuminatural to spot treat (if you just have some spots), or you can put a thin layer all over your face/neck/chest etc and then allow it to absorb a few minutes, then apply Kollagen Intensiv. You can shop for both on the Skinception Anti Aging Store. It's the same manufacturer. Rachel

Q: Why not show results for women in their 80's? All the models you use are so young, it's hard to believe that any of the creams would help the older woman. I happen to like Eminence for my face, but their neck firming cream is only OK. Their eye cream and wrinkle filler do not seem to do the job. What do you recommend to tighten the sagging neck? I have tried several. My skin otherwise is good. After reading below about Revive, I'm hesitant to use again, although I can purchase locally. Revive Fermitif neck renewal cream seemed to be ok. Now I'm looking to Whole Foods for my creams, they are local, so if I'm not pleased, I can return, and there is no pushy salesperson. It takes time to see any results. -Gail

A: Gail, I like using Skinception's AHA Toner + Kollagen Intensiv, it's my favorite combo and you can purchase both from the Skinception Anti-aging store. The AHA toner speeds up cell renewal and builds collagen, which is what strengthens the skin and creates firmness and lifts. The Kollagen Intensiv cream also builds collagen and has a bit of retinol for anti-aging. You could certainly give it a try. I've used many Whole Foods brands....I can't say I have ever loved an organic product I've tried from there. Kollagen Intensiv doesn't contain any harmful chemicals or parabens, but it's not "organic." I don't mind some lab made ingredients, they work better in my opinion and are not harmful. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of more mature women. I used my picture a lot and I'm 45... I try to use myself as an example because that's all I've got to work with:) Good luck! Rachel

Q: Are Obagi products any better than those you recommend? -Karen

A: Hi Karen, Obagi is very expensive and they do contain some of those bad chemicals that I try to avoid. My sister when she worked at Nordstrom, would meet women who used Obagi and said they had "thin" skin... I've tried their hydroquinone products and was allergic, the face cleanser had parabens, etc. so I'm really just not a fan :/  For a spa grade brand, I MUCH prefer Image skincare, it's amazing, but it's also pricey. ~Rachel

Q: Hi Rachel, great blog! I'm 45 and dealing with deep lines around my mouth (I've never been a smoker though), fine lines on my face and neck, and crepey skin on my knees and hands. What would you suggest? Thanks for your time and advice! -Angela

A: Hi Angela, I'm 45 too! :) My favorite combo is using the Skinception AHA Toner + Kollagen Intensiv Anti-aging cream. The toner really helps to refine the skin, smooth wrinkles over time, and build collagen. It also does a good job exfoliation which allows the Kollagen to work better. Take a look at my review linked above or you can shop for both at the Skinception Anti-aging store. The toner is key!! It's refreshing also and doesn't burn, although you can feel it working....fruit enzymes. Thanks, Rachel

Q: Is there any kind of pore cleansing/ pore refining skin care treatment you can recomend? -Erinn

A: Erinn, Skinceptions AHA Toner is a great product for that. It shrinks pores, builds collagen and will refine your skin tone and bring it to the proper pH level. This is my favorite toner. It contains natural fruit enzymes (alphahydroxy) but it's a gentle formula. Really effective and works quickly! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Hello, Have you tried the AGE Stop Swiss serum or any products with the Red Snow Algae? Thank you, Lisa -Lisa

A: Lisa, unfortunately I classify Age Stop Swiss Serum as a scam. They charge you $4.95 to cover s&h then they're going to bill you $91.36 on the 14th day, the day the free trial is up. Day 1 is the day you ordered. Then they will continue to ship it to you every 30 days and charge the same. The number I found for the Suisse serum is:  888-339-1909. As far as the red snow algae miracle anti-aging claim, it's a gimmick and there are no clinical trials to back it up. Much like the snake venom peptide cream claims; it's not snake venom at all, just a marketing ploy.  Rachel

Q: Which cream is better for neck and chin sagging -Mercedes

A: Hi Mercedes, thanks for your question. I think I'd go for the Skinception AHA Toner + Kollagen Intensiv combo, those two together really help to increase cell turnover, build collagen and firm and tighten over continued use. You can look at both on the Skinception Anti-aging website. I love using the toner and cream on my face, neck and chest. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks, Rachel

Q: I’m 70 years old and my face is very wrinkled. I’ve tried many different products. I did try meaningful beauty a few years ago. I liked the product but felt wrinkles hadn’t diminished that much. I’ve pretty much given up. I don’t really believe there’s a product that can significantly reduce my wrinkles. I can’t afford a face lift or injections so I’ll have to learn to live with my wrinkled face. Thanks for listening. -Pamela S

A: Hi Pamela, out of my favorites - give the Posh Defiant Gimme a Boost Cream a try (the one for dry skin would be best), I think it's the best choice for mature skin. You could even mix the Cann I Be CBD oil with that one as well, it has a lot of healing properties and it's been great for smoothing out my chest wrinkles and face!

Q: Is Derma Joie a scam? It is supposedly a cream that Meghan Markle helped developed and, now that she is in the Royal Family, she had to "give away all her samples." I sent for the " free" sample. Am I going to have to pay for this every month now? Please let me know if you have any information about this product. -Cheryl

A: Cheryl, yes this is a scam. They've charged you $4.95 or so for a "free" sample but it's not free. After the "free" part of the trial is up in only 14 days - they're going to bill you around $100 and keep sending this bogus cream to you every month and billing you the same. Please read my Skin Care Free Trial Scams blog - I do have an extensive list of phone numbers there (over 500), but it's best to call your bank and ask them for the number of the company who billed you - it's usually a different company name than the cream. And they may be impossible to get a hold off. Try calling first and then if you can't resolve it, ask your bank if they can dispute the fraudulent charges, and you may even need to cancel your card so they can't continue to bill you. It's a real big, fat, SCAM! The Royal Family is not really recommending these creams - people just write bogus sales ads and use celebrities to lure people in to a free trial. Sorry to bring you bad news, but it's in your best interest to get out of this recurring auto shipment ASAP. Good luck! xo Rachel

It's not "free" it's only free for 30 days and then they bill you, UNLESS you call before the 30 days is up to cancel. I like to make this very clear so there are no surprises. So it's not a "free" trial, it's a 30 day delay in billing you unless you call and tell them you don't wish to keep it. It's an AWESOME cream, but no sample is free forever unless you get a sample from a department store counter. :) Thanks, Rachel

Q: I am interested in the Lifecell products as I have aging skin and brown spots. How do I get to their website from your blog. I really don't know if anything will help me at my age which is 82. I do have wrinkles on my cheek area, forehead and not that many around my eyes. Everyone says I look very good for my age and I'm sure it's due to my mothers good genes. I would appreciate any feedback you could give me. Maybe it's too late for me. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Pat -Pat

A: Hi Pat, you can read my Lifecell review here and I provide links directly to the manufacturer. You can visit the official website here. Be sure and read my review first so you fully understand how their trial and membership works so you have no surprise billings. It's a great product, I used for years, and it does instantly fill wrinkles. It's never too late to help nourish the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles to give your face a smoother look and so it's easier to apply makeup. :) Just be aware that they give you 30 days to try it before they bill you. Mark you calendar around the 20 day mark so that if you don't like it, you can call them and cancel before they bill you and enroll you into their autoship. They're really wonderful products, I love their face wash as well, but many people try Lifecell thinking it's "free." It's only free during the trial period. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. Rachel

Q: I will be 66 and I have deep lines over my top lip, around my mouth and getting wrinkles on my cheeks. What's the best product to use? Thanks for your time. -Susan

A: Hi Susan, check out Beauty Counter's Rejuvenating Collection....it has the strongest anti-aging ingredients from their line...and it contains vitamin C which I love for reversing damage. You can buy just the cream separately as well, and my other favorite product for plumping up wrinkles and smoothing the face is their Plumping facial oil, you can check out the Plumping Spa set here. These are all wonderful so it's hard to choose just one, but choose the Rejuvenating Night cream if you have to choose just one and you can use it both am and pm if you don't want to buy the separate day cream. Let me know if you have questions once you start browsing. I've been using these collections for the past two months and my skin has shown a real improvement and they all feel oh so pampering!

If it decides to land someday, it goes from the products,the mix up I had due mostly I could not remember Christie Brinkley and my brain was out getting a tune-up so I could put the correct products with Cindy Crawford. I am so glad I read your blog. It reinforced my ideas of what I wanted to purchase and from the correct person/place. Also, I hope to read your book tonight. I feel it will fill in many gaps in my very poor makeup knowledge. Well I will go and order my "goodies". Thank you for your help today and the help I am sure I will be getting from you regardless if it is from reading your blog, reading other people's questions or even asking my own question that you have answered (hopefully). Sincerely, Linda -Linda

A: Linda, I did get your message, thanks! I just responded. Rachel

Q: What would be the monthly cost for all the products needed. Would you have any discounts for low income disabled seniors ? Thank You -Darlene

A: Darlene, it depends on which of my Top 3 you're looking at trying. I unfortunately don't have a discount for seniors... I just give recommendations.  The Kollagen Intensiv is $59 for a tub. ~Rachel

Q: Dark spots -Sonia alvarez

A: Sonja, did you have a question? I'm going to assume you're asking what my recommendation is for dark spots. :)

The best combination I could recommend would be using Illuminatural 6k Skin Lightener  (you can read my personal review there) and using  Kollagen Intensiv on top. The Illuminatural does a great job of lightening spots, and using Kollagen Intensiv over top will also help lighten spots (plus you need a separate moisturizer).

You can take a look at both at the Skinception Anti-Aging Store. This is a line that I highly recommend. I use many of their products.

Let me know if you have any more specific questions. Thank you. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Am I able to order any of these without the long term contract of receiving automatic monthly refills. I just want to try them and then make my OWN decision on ordering more. -Kathryn

A: Hi Kathyrn, you can purchase Kollagen Intensiv outright. They do offer a 30 day trial but I prefer not to recommend that for people, unless they're fully aware of how it works. Meaningful Beauty is a membership....if you order and don't cancel within 30 days, then they're send you a 90 day supply. For you, I would recommend Kollagen Intensiv. No strings attached if you don't wish to buy more. I think you'll love it! Rachel

Q: Have you tried Christie Brinkley's skin care products and do they work? Thank you -Ann

A: Hi Ann, thanks for your email. I'm going to be honest, I have tried them and to me they smelled very odd, it reminded me of bug spray. I also have sensitive eyes and all of her products irritated me badly. I ended up giving them to my mom to try. She thought they were just OK. I don't have a recommendation on my blog for her products. You also have to be very careful to buy from HER website - there are tons of companies selling her products as "free trials" which are the very ones I warn about.  I prefer Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty, they products work well, have better ingredients and are wonderful for sensitive skin. You can read my Meaningful Beauty review here if you'd like to learn more about it. Thank you! Rachel

Q: Do you know anything about the SkinPeutics Line. I am especially interested in the Peptide Matrix Plumping Serum. Ingredients sound wonderful, but can't find a lot of info on them. I'm 68 and enjoy reading your questions & Answers, very informative. -Linda

A: Hi Linda, I have not used this line before or actually ever heard of it. It's a new company so they don't have a long history or reputation in the market place. Honestly their products seem pricey and they don't provide a complete list of ingredients on their website. I always raise an eyebrow when I see what seems to be nothing but raving reviews on their website, which they can just create themselves. I wish I could give you a better answer. They do seem to offer a 30 day guarantee but you would have to pay for shipping back to them with proper RMA form filled out and they'd have to receive it back within the 30 day period. If you decide to try it, I'd love to hear how you like the products. Rachel

Q: Have you researched the otc skin care system "REVITALIFT"? I was just curious as to results... Thank you -Erinn

A: Erin, Revitalift is a short term free trial offer, there's nothing special about it. I don't trust any of these companies who only give you 12 days before they bill you full price. Lifecell gives you 30 days. Rachel

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

      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

    Hi Shanni, thanks for your comment. I haven’t tried Somaluxe but it looks like it has good ingredients. My #2 cream, Kollagen Intensiv has similar, collagen building ingredients. Love it!

    Hi Rachel,
    I’m wondering about how natural these three products are. I only use very clean and natural products on my body but would love to find a good wrinkle cream and skin regenerator!!

      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.

    • 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.

      Thank you so much for your reply. I feel confident enough now to order Lifecell. I will let you know how it works for me later on.

  • liz

    I was looking at the crepe away because of this crepe looking skin which has not responded to any kind of lotions or organic oils that i have used. I am interested in the skin on my arms and legs. If will work on other parts of the body-that would be a bonus.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      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.

    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.

      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.. 🙂

    • 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 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.

  • Marie

    I was just wondering what skin care products do you recommend that will fight against wrinkles, but at a very good price. Since I am trying to cut back on money. Thanks!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      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 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.

    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,

      Rachel Vrabel

      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!

    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 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

  • Lara

    hello Admin,
    Im Lara and my age is 26. Im From India. I have an unclear face with deep dark circles under my eye and upper of my eyelid area and seems wrinkles too. When i see myself in the mirror, i can see like I’m wearing a glass…. i mean: people can notice my dark circle easily from far and when people meet me or comes closer to me, they asks me that either i am sick or didn’t have enough sleep or they feels like I’m facing a big problem so that i looks sick.

      Hey Jasamine,
      I also responded to your post on Triactol, check it out here. As far as cream recommendations, I think that Lifecell would work well for your face wrinkles, and Elite Serum could work for your under eye issues. Let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!

    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

      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!

      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!

        Hello Rachel,

        Thank you so much for answering promptly to my questions. I will follow your advises and check back the site ones a while to keep myself informed.

    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

      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?

    Thank you so much!

  • Dani

    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

      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!

    • Rachel Vrabel

      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
