One day when I was in the store looking around at all the anti-aging products, I came across a small trial type tube of Aveeno Positively Ageless. I thought to myself that Aveeno was supposed to be a good anti-aging product line. So I decided to give it a try. It did seem to soften my lines & wrinkles a little. So I continued to use it. But it only seem to soften them shortly after I applied it. The results weren't long lasting. But I liked that it was nice & creamy and easy to apply. I just wish it kept softening my lines & wrinkles.
Next, I received a sample of another product I never heard of called Perlabella. It was a card with about 5 or 6 little (I don't even know what you would call them). Its a tiny soft plastic pearl type thing that you twit the top off and squeeze the product out. I actually received 2 of these products. One said it had some kind of Q10(probably an antioxidant) and that one made my skin real soft. But, I didn't really see any improvements after using it a week(other than my skin being real soft after using it). The other one said it had retinol in it. When I used this one, it made my skin soft & helped soften the lines & wrinkles. It didn't make them go away. But, it did help soften them. However, I believe it was really expensive. I tried to look up how much it cost but I couldn't find much information on it, so it might have been discontinued.
Again, while shopping I stopped at the isle with the anti-aging products and came across the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer. This is supposed to have retinol in it to help with wrinkles. I read up on it online and it sounded like it would be a good product for me to try. However, again I sadly report that it really didn't do to much for my problem areas. I really thought this would work for me. For one, it had retinol in it(that's supposed to help with lines & wrinkles). I read up on it that seemed like it would work. Another I used it faithfully every day/night for over a month. And, I still didn't get any results from it.
When I was at the store, when I bought the Neutrogena, I had also seen another product similar which was the Roc Deep Wrinkle Serum. So I bought that and tried that next. Again since I bought the full product and used it for over a month until I had used every single last drop, I thought it would have helped at least some. But, I really didn't see any difference in my skin or problem areas. And I believe that is supposed to have retinol in it too. However, since they are sold in any store, I'm thinking that there probably isn't to much retinol in them.
So, I figured I'd mainly concentrate on my eye area since that's where I have the most problems. So, I decided to try a product called Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Under Eye Recovery. But again ..... nothing. I used the whole tube and I didn't see any difference at all.
I just can't believe out of all the product I tried so far that I haven't gotten any results from any of them. There were a few more samples that I received that I tried but I didn't save the empty pack & I don't remember what they were now. But, if I remember then I will add them in.
But, from all the product I tried so far, I can't believe none of them have made any difference at all. Except for a little bit of the BB cream. But, that was only temporary and washed off when the product was washed off.
So, I thought, maybe I need to get away from the store brand products and try something a little better(thats probably going to cost more money though). But I'm willing to give it a try as long as I can get some results.
Below are a sample of what the products I tried and told you about above.
Stay turned for more products that I tried and their results .....
