1. Splurge or Steal: Wrinkle Management

    Posted by Kathia Sya on July 3, 2012

    Try as we might to deny its arrival, but wrinkles are a true fact of life and too often, they are here to stay. While we are at home with the idea of wrinkles as a natural part of the aging process, it is hard to deny the professional pressure women and men alike encounter to look as fresh as a daisy if not crease free. We’ve picked out two products from two end of the price spectrum for when botox, injectable fillers and resurfacing treatments are not a consideration.

     

    Dr. Brandt Crease Release with GABA & 3D-Lift 

    This product is incredibly lightweight and leaves minimal silicone slip, unlike many wrinkle relaxing and smoothing products.  It spreads out extremely evenly and has a delightfully light and minty smell. The lightweight formula also means there is a need for a moisturiser underneath. This allows users the flexibility to not abandon their tried and tested moisturizers. Dr. Brandt claims that the 3-D lift technology instantly tightens while GABA smoothes the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles in a way similar to Botox®.

    We like this for the very fine wrinkle smoothing effect and lightweight texture. The price tag may be steep, but a little goes a long way with this.

    Price: RM299 for 15g
    Availability: Dr. Brandt counters nationwide.

     

    Olay Wrinkle Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream

    Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream claims to manage visible signs of aging in an instant while providing longer term benefits in reducing wrinkle formation. It contains Regenerist’s signature Aminopeptide Complex, which is made up of ingredients such as Pal-KTTKS, niacinamide, Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and Allantoin which helps to renew the skin at the cellular level at the epidermis layer. It also includes Peptamide Y6 - a new biopeptide. Read more about peptides in anti-aging formulas here.

    We feel this product’s is one of the most moisturizing in its class. Many topical wrinkle filler products are made to go over a matching moisturiser and contain less humectants and emollients on its own. For skin that isn’t overly dry, we feel this is a sufficient product for moisturizing in addition to its wrinkle filling and long term relaxing benefits.

    Price: RM99* for 50ml
    Availability: Olay displays in pharmacies nationwide.
