Neutrogena ageless intensives anti wrinkle serum
I’m turning 27 this year and although I’m part Asian and look young for my age I’ve started to notice faint lines on my forehead.
Not having been much into beauty products before (due to laziness) I had no idea what to do about this. I faced the vast wall of products available, unsure whether my laziness or vanity was stronger. Me being someone who has never even bothered to regularly moisturise in the past.
I did a little research and discovered that there were actually different types of anti aging products, and for those in their twenties and early thirties it was considered the ‘pre aging’ category. Good! I felt validated in my decision that it would be easier to do some thing preventative now than wait till I look old then try desperately to fix it.
I found an article that said retinol was the key ingredient I should look for, whereas collagen etc are more useful for mature skin.
The selection above is what I eventually settled on, the Neutrogena serum is recommended as a high over the counter retinol containing product. The L’Oréal youth code series was a godsend- the latest L’Oréal packaging has AGE RANGES written on the side of the box. I don’t know what marketing genius came up with that concept but no other products in pharmacy seem to have it, and seeing that it was recommended for 25-35 (day cream) or 30-40 (night cream- close enough) whereas other ranges they had said 40-50, 60+, just made it SO much easier when I had no idea what I was doing and didn’t want to spend ages trying different products till I chanced on the right one, or going to consult a beautician. Yes, this appeared to be a product for me.
I’ve been using the three, in conjunction with actual cleansers and exfoliants, diligently for about a week now and I can already see a bit of a difference (though there wasn’t much to repair to start with) so I’m pretty happy with that ^_^
The price is affordable at about $30 each and regularly on sale at Priceline or Chemist Warehouse. You don’t seem to need much but I’ll see how long it lasts.
