Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review +Giveaway #anavitawrinklecream

I am always on the lookout for novel options to help make my skin look smoother and more youthful. There have been so many innovations the past few years in wrinkle creams they really can make a huge difference if you choose a quality cream or serum. I recently had the opportunity to try something new from Anavita.  It works quickly to make a difference and the Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream can offer more beautiful, smoother skin in just 2 to 4 weeks and see continuing improvement for 12 weeks or potentially sooner.  I was excited about the opportunity to reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles and restore some firmness. Since fall and winter is approaching, I was also hoping to replenish my skin as well without resorting to scary and expen$ive procedures like injections or fillers.

Anavita's non-irritating cream is perfect for all skin types. It is recommended for normal, dry, oily, and sensitive skin. I experienced no irritation and my skin can sometimes be sensitive--not a problem with this cream. It is a simple product to use too. I followed their instructions and just massaged the Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream after cleansing my skin in the morning and again at night.
I like that I can eliminate multiple steps too. It makes my life easier and more streamlined. It works as a cream, night cream and makeup base. This is a unique formula that Anavita shared stimulates collagen production and rebuilds the cellular matrix of the skin using three clinically proven ingredients - a super-absorbent form of hyaluronic acid, Argireline (5%), and Matrixyl.  This is a powerful but gentle combination that makes this anti-wrinkle cream for the face and neck extraordinarily effective.  This is a cream with high quality ingredients that are paraben free and not tested on animals.

I followed their guidance and cleansed my face gently and then applied a pea-sized dollop of the thick and rich cream and gently massaged in the cream using gentle upward strokes twice a day. I love that it serves as a day cream, night cream, wrinkle cream and make up base to make my life simpler too. Anavita also points out that not all skincare products work synergestically. For example, if you are using another brand of wrinkle cream on your face at night and wanted to use Anavita during the day, the night product could prevent Anavita from absorbing easily. They suggest a two week washout period so Anavita will absorb normally.  I just have been using the Anavita by itself and it has been working fine.

My thoughts:  I noticed my skin looked more toned and definitely rejuventated after a few days of using the Anavita cream.  I think replenished would also be a good way to describe my skin. I love that Anavita Moisturizing Cream is made by a company in the USA.  They are based in Tennessee and the Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream is manufactured for them in Canada under strict Canadian cosmetic manufacturing guidelines.  I feel like this is a great moisturizer that will work well for me into the chilly winter months when my skin really needs it. I will update you as I see more results in the coming weeks.  You can buy this excellent anti-wrinkle cream on Amazon.

180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen Review #expederm

I am always looking for options to improve the look of my skin.  You have to take care of your facial skin carefully.  I was excited to hear about a novel option from 180 Cosmetics. They have a great product that can help reverse the signs of aging with the revitalizing power of oxygen. 

This powerful serum has several benefits:
  • Delivers abundant moisture for smooth, supple, wrinkle-free skin.
  • Diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, and the signs of aging, while preserving the skin's elasticity, suppleness, and youthful tone.
  • Nourishes, energizes, hydrates, and rejuvenates.
  • Contains the highest concentration of the absolute best quality Swiss hyaluronic acid available on the market, and enriched with natural ingredients for maximum results.
  • Also contains powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radicals.

Why should anyone consider Hyaluronic Acid? As we age, our body produces less and less of this important acid, thus affecting how moisture is stored in our skin. With 180° Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen, your skin gets the nourishing ingredients it needs to stay toned, smooth, rejuvenated, and beautiful. In just moments, this amazing serum penetrates deep into the skin, nourishing it from the core.

My experience:  I have been using this serum all week long on my face after cleansing.  It feels good on my skin and I haven't experienced any irritation.  My face looks bright and my skin is super clear.  The pores are starting to look smaller which is wonderful. I think my fine lines look a little softer but I will give it a few more weeks. Nothing works totally overnight and I think repeated applications make a difference. 

You can find this hyaluronic serum right on Amazon. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
