You can’t get rid of face wrinkles by reading reviews on wrinkle cream, but sometimes, you can learn a lot. I have to warn you, though; it isn’t always “pretty”.
Reviews on Wrinkle Cream/Adrien Arpel
No one has anything really good to say about these products. They contain an ingredient called Argireline that is supposed to reduce face wrinkles by preventing muscle contractions and facial expressions.
The original research concerning this ingredient was positive, although no more than a 27% reduction in wrinkles was noted after 30 days of use. The research is not specific concerning the age of the volunteers.
The company does not fully disclose the other ingredients that they include in their products. But, according to consumer comments, they “clog the pores”, “feel greasy”, are the “consistency of chap-stick” and make lips “drier than ever”. Judging by this description, I am sure that the products contain mineral oils, petrolatum and paraffin wax, all of which are petroleum derivatives that will eventually increase the signs of aging.
Reviews on Wrinkle Cream/Allergan Prevage
The companies name may as well be “allergen”, considering almost all of the ingredients are prone to cause allergic reactions, even in people without sensitive skin. One customer, who says she does not have sensitive skin, used a test patch, as advised by the company, and awoke on the tenth day with redness, itching and an oatmeal textured rash.
There is nothing in the product that could be considered effective. The company still advises the daily use of sunscreen, a controversial suggestion. I would recommend that you avoid this product.
Reviews on Wrinkle Cream/Adverse Reactions
The most common reactions are like the ones mentioned above; redness, itching, rashes, clogged pores, etc. Some products cause pimples, which is a result of clogged pores. But, others cause serious changes in the skin’s texture and even increase face wrinkles.
If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is read more consumer reviews on wrinkle cream. I’ve had enough of them. I have found products that effectively reduce face wrinkles, without causing adverse reactions.
They are a relatively new line of products, so only a few comments have been reported, but all of them are positive. This isn’t your average company, either. They actually host a blog on their website, where consumers can say what they really think and comments are unedited, unless of course you write something offensive or pornographic.
The ingredients that they use are mostly sourced from plants, but one unique protein complex is extracted from sheep’s wool. In clinical studies, researchers measured a 44% improvement in firmness after only 18 days of use. After 28 days, 62% of volunteers reported significant wrinkle-reduction.
The extract has antioxidant activity, exceeding that of vitamin E. Antioxidants are necessary to repair wrinkles, caused by free radical damage from the sun and other environmental factors, as well as what naturally accompanies the aging process.
Dermatologists agree that free radicals are responsible for face wrinkles, while antioxidants prevent and repair the damage. Just shop carefully, to prevent unwanted reactions.
