As I mentioned before I have always used a moisturizer on my face & neck. But it wasn't until several years ago that I started using products especially for anti-aging. I started using products from the drug store because they were quick and easy to get and they were affordable(for the most part). I believe the very first anti-aging product I started using was Oil of Olay. And, although it did moisturize my skin, it didn't really do anything for any of my problem areas.
Since I liked Olay as a moisturizer, I tried the Olay Regenerist anti-aging moisturizer. Again, it moisturized my skin good but I didn't see any results on my problem areas. Although this might have helped keep me from getting any more lines and wrinkles(if I continued to use it), it didn't help diminish the one's I already had.
Then I received a sample of Garnier Ultra-Lift, so I tried that. When I applied it, it did seem to tighten/lift my skin, ever so slightly. So I went to buy it to try it longer to see if using it longer would help any more. When I was at the store looking for the Ultra-Lift I seen something in the same line. It was the Garnier Ultra-Lift Targeted Line Smoother, Tightener + Cream.
Now this seemed like it would be something more on the lines of what I needed. So, I bought that and used it. I think the bottle lasted me around a month. Again, it did give my skin just a slightly lifted look after applying it. But, the lifted look didn't seem to last to long(maybe an hour or so). And after about a month of use, I didn't really notice any improvements, on my face or around my eyes, other than it being moisturized.
Next, I received another sample in the mail. This was for Loreal Revitalift Triple Power. I was thinking, Wow, triple power! This must be good. Now the sample pack only contains enough for a couple uses. When I tried it, like the Garnier, it did give my skin an ever so slightly lifted look. But again, it didn't last long.
At the same time, I also received and tried a sample of the Loreal Revitalift Miracle Blur. I didn't like that at all. Its supposed to help Blur your lines and wrinkles. But it would just ball up and rub off when I put it on. If I just wiped it over my wrinkles once, lightly, without rubbing or wiping it(just a very thin layer) it looked alright, until I moved my face(smiled, squinted, etc.). Then it would crease and make my wrinkles look even worse. So, I'd have to wipe over it & it would ball up and wipe off. So that didn't last to long or work to good for me, either. It was just really hard to get it to go on right.
Next I will tell you about some more products I tried and their results. So, stay turned! : )
