I started using anti-aging skin products about 2 years ago, not because I have wrinkles or fine lines, but because I find that these products work better on my aging skin. I’ve used a number of products, all of which I will share in a separate post, but I want to dedicate this post to Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex.
Hydroxatone contains Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixl3000, Agireline and SPf15 which helps skin to retain moisture, promote natural levels of collagen, provide fast result and protect the skin against the suns harmful rays.
According to their site, Hydroxatone is clinically proven to:
- Enhance production of healthy skin
- Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and age spots
- Exfoliate dead, unhealthy skin cells
- Replenish skin with deep conditioning
I actually tried the product at the end of 2011 along with their intensive youth serum when I was having issues with dry, taut, flaking skin brought on by the cold, dry air. At that time, I certainly couldn’t say that I noticed any of the results that they claimed but it did wonders in hydrating my skin.
It’s a heavy cream though that tends to be oily when first applied. Because of that reason I didn’t think it would be a good solution for me during warmer months when my skin tends to be Jermaine Jackson grade oily. However, I’ve been using the AM/PM cream for the last two weeks and I am actually happy with it. It’s heavy (I can’t even emphasize that enough) so I use a smaller amount and massage it onto my face. I was surprised to find that it actually absorbs quickly into my skin and while it does leave a glow on my skin, its not “greazy” looking.
I had a really bad acne breakout back in April (this was what prompted the emergency doctor visit mentioned here… Yeah, it was that bad!) and I was still dealing with some of the left over dark spots (hyperpigmentation) from the breakout. I have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my skin since I started using it this time around. My skin looks brighter, my pores look smaller, my skin looks more even and most of the spots, especially the ones on my lower cheeks are now gone. I did get a few additional pimples since I started using the product, but I believe that it’s part of the same issue that started back in April.
Hydroxatone’s AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex is not a budgetbabe or frugalista price range product, though. It sells online and at retailers like Ulta for $69.00. The essential beauty box looks like a great value, however. It contains: Advanced Under Eye Treatment, .5 oz AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex, 1 oz, Revitalizing Microdermabrasion, & 90 second Instant Effects all for $49 also at Ulta.
