Another Anti-aging product I recently tried ... is called Skin Rescue RX by Advanced Skin Care. They also advertise it on Amazon as A Botox Alternative - Snake Peptide, with a bunch of other peptides. Which is where I got it, on Amazon. I know that peptides are good for your skin so I figured I'd give it a try. And, I've recently been reading about the snake or Syn-ake peptide that act's as a Botox like ingredient(but without the painful injections). I'm not one for needles. So, any topical products I can use that will give me similar results, I'm all for.
Before I started using it, I wasn't really expecting to much. I figured if it helped some it would be worth it. But as you know(or if you've read my other posts) I haven't had much luck with finding products that work. But boy am I glad I decided to try this. I figured I'd give it a try since its reasonably priced. Then I wouldn't be to upset if it didn't work. But, it really did help tighten & tone my under eye area & crow's feet. A lot better than I was expecting. So I am really happy with it.
When I apply it, I put a little on my finger and lightly swipe it under my eyes & crow's feet a couple times. Then I lightly rub it in just a little. But, only for a couple seconds, then pat the rest in. Because for one, you really don't want to rub hard or tug at your delicate under eye area. But, also if you keep rubbing it in, as it starts to dry, it will start to pill(or ball up) and come off. And you don't want it to come off or it won't work right.
You really don't need much. I only use a little bit for each under eye area. Probably about one small pump, split between both under eye areas. If it still feels wet after I pat it in, then I take a piece of paper or card board & fan it. This helps to dry it the rest of the way, before I apply my moisturizer & make-up. I also use it on my forehead, around my mouth and chin as well as under my eyes. Or, sometimes I put it all over my whole face and neck.
The only thing is, that once you wash it off at the end of the day, it seems some of the results go with it. But I just apply more for the night. I usually apply it twice a day(once in the morning & once at night). With all the great ingredients in it, it should help where ever you apply it, to keep improving over time. Just the few weeks that I have used it, I notice a difference in the lines, wrinkles & puffiness around my eyes starting to diminish. Even the dark circles under my eyes have lightened some. Yay!
I notice the best/most results shortly after I apply it. Usually within a few minutes. Which is great that it works that fast. And for how bad my under eye area was before, I'll take whatever help I can get. But it really does make a difference. At least, it has for me.
I like it because its fast acting. Meaning it works within a few minutes after applying it. But because it has a lot of "good for your skin" ingredients(vitamins & peptides as well as the snake or Syn-ake peptide) in it, it works over time too. And its easy to apply.
If you decide to try it, start with a tiny amount on a small spot on your face first. Just to make sure you don't have any reactions to it. I don't know of something like that happening to anyone. But you never know. Its better to be safe than sorry, right?
I bought it on Amazon for around $20. Which isn't a bad price for how well it works. It has 600 reviews and a 4 1/2 out of 5 star rating, & that's pretty good. I would have to agree. I would give it a 4 1/2 out of 5 star rating too.
But you be the judge, I will post a recent picture below. You can notice a difference under my eyes in the picture below, compared to the one I posted at the beginning and on my last post.(Sorry that the pictures aren't the greatest). I can tell a big difference. But that's because I can see my skin close up too & without make-up. But I think the Skin Rescue RX really has helped. So I will continue to use it, until I find something that works better.
Let me know in the comments what you think. Or if you've tried anything that you like & that works for you.
Thanks & have a great day!
The first picture is the Skin Rescue RX.(on Amazon) Next to that are my pictures. The picture in the middle(or the 1st of my pictures) is after using the Strivectin. And the last picture is after I started using the Skin Rescue RX. I hate that 1st picture of me but I wanted to show it since it shows what my under eyes looked like before I started using the Skin Rescue RX.
Big difference under my eyes, huh?(Especially from before I started using the Strivectin, on my 1st post).
If you click on any of the blue/green underlined ... Skin Rescue RX or on the Amazon product picture below, it will take you to the product on Amazon, if you'd like to read more about it.
I just wanted to write a quick update to show you a picture of what I look like after using the Strivectin products for a few months. I think the Strivectin products really helped to diminish the lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Now the lines, wrinkles & puffiness, aren't completely gone. But the Strivectin products did make a difference around my eyes in what they looked like before I started using them, as you will see in the pictures I post below.
I had some pictures I had taken shortly after using the Strivectin products, some without make-up and some with make-up. Well, we had a power outage and my camera was plugged into my computer when it happened. The pictures I took without make-up some how vanished, when we had the power outage. So the only picture I have is with make-up. But I think you'll still be able to see the difference. The make-up might help hide some of the problem area's(lines, wrinkles & puffiness) around my eyes. But you can still see there is a difference from before I used the Strivectin products till after I used them. In fact, maybe I should load the picture of before I started using them again too. Just so you don't have to go searching for it.
Again, if you are interested in the Strivectin products I used, I will put the links down below under my pictures. If you would like to read about me using them, that is on my last post.
If you happened to have tried any of the Strivectin products, let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks!
p.s. I know, everyone tells me how different I look with make-up. :)
