I review a lot of anti-aging skin care. I love being able to review different products and the fact that I will be 45 this year (I know), I feel the need to try as much as I can for my awesome readers as well as myself!
Unfortunately, aging does not only show itself in wrinkles. There are so many wonderful (ha!) skin problems that we encounter as we age such as enlarged pores, redness, sensitivity and dark spots.
Most of the products below help more than one symptom of aging skin and may help you look even more radiant than you do now!
Algenist Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Concentrate
Algenist Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Concentrate ($75 USD) — Formulated with Alguronic Acid and multi-perfecting ingredients (salicylic acid, oligosaccharides), this oil-free serum has a unique lightweight texture that instantly tightens pores, smoothes roughness and refines skin texture. Enlarged pores and discoloration are visibly reduced for a more even, radiant complexion.
What I think: This is a very light serum that instantly absorbs into the skin and leaves it feeling smooth, but not tight. I notice that on my first use of both this and the Gel Moisturizer below, my skin looked smoother and now that I have been using them about once a day for a few weeks my pores are less noticeable.

This is a light get that leaves skin soft.

Consequent skin care management is the imperative prophylaxis to prolong the youthful vitality and appearance of your skin. sebamed Research & Development formulated Q10 Protection to support the natural metabolic processes and receptivity of the skin to facilitate its regeneration.
The active ingredients in Sebamed Anti-Ageing Q10 Protection are absorbed optimally by the skin to promote its equilibrium. Co-enzyme Q10 is an important catalyst, which activates the metabolism of oxygen in the cells. Its production in the skin decreases noticeably from the age of 30. Panthenol supports the regeneration process of the skin cells. Vitamin E neutralizes free-radicals caused by environmental contaminants and UV radiation, which cause premature ageing. It reduces fine lines and protects the cellular elasticity against other age-related changes in the skin.
What I think: This is a great anti-aging cream for those with sensitive skin. Unfortunately, many anti-aging products irritate my skin. This does not. And it keeps my skin smooth, hydrated and has helped reduce some of my fine lines (I don’t have deep lines yet. Probably because I use so much anti-aging products, LOL)!
