Thanks to BzzAgent, I recently got to try out L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cream 45+.
The cream is packaged in typical L’Oreal style, clean, fresh and modern design. This cream is in a clear glass jar though, which is nice as you can see how much you have left. I much prefer this clear style over opaque jars.
The cream itself is a really thick cream but being so thick you really don’t need to use much because a little goes a long way. Despite it being a thick, rich cream it is still pretty light so it absorbs easily into the skin, providing hydration and nourishment that lasts all day. It’s non greasy and leaves your skin feeling super soft and firm. It has a pleasant scent but I do find it is quite strong but then I am really sensitive to scents in general.
This anti wrinkle cream contains Retino-Peptides; this is what it says about them on the L’Oréal website:-
RETINO-PEPTIDES are a powerful complex of Pro Retinol A and PEPTIDES. The formula helps to stimulate skin surface cell renewal in the epidermal layer.
It also claims to have the following benefits:
1. SMOOTHES THE LOOK OF WRINKLES
The appearance of the length, number and surface of wrinkles are reduced. Skin looks softer and more supple.
2. IMPROVES FIRMNESS
After one week, skin regains the feeling of firmness and elasticity. Its overall appearance looks improved.
3. HYDRATES 24H
Skin is intensely moisturised for 24 hours. It feels supple and more comfortable.
I have started to notice that fine lines are diminishing and my skin looks and feels plumper and firmer after using L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cream 45+ for 14 days now. I do have very sensitive, dry skin though and found that this cream did sting a little on my most dry areas for a few seconds but it faded quite quickly. These areas are extremely dry though and very, very sensitive. It however, did not irritate the rest of my skin in any way at all.
All in all, I found this to be a really good day cream that does actually do what it claims to.
