In early 2011, Kiehl’s has once again launched a new innovative skincare product – Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler islandwide in Singapore.
Kiehl’s is considered one of the first few brands to have developed a wrinkle filler product. Other brands that have developed similar products are RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler, Boots Intensive Line Filler, Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler and Babor Wrinkle Filler.
A month ago, I was delighted to receive a complimentary Kiehl’s Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler and it is the first and only wrinkle filler I’ve tested so far.
Frankly, I have been longing to try a wrinkle filler for a long time! An instant filler for my nasalabiol folds, marionette lines and crow’s feet without going under the knife! You will probably ask on why have I not tested other wrinkle fillers before? Well, there is no one product that has tempted me to do so. Kiehl’s is one of the reliable brands I have known and the product claim of this new Kiehl’s Wrinkle Filler is so convincing that I couldn’t resist anymore. In addition, I like the idea that it is FREE of fragrance, silicone and paraben.
Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler is the latest addition to the Dermatologist Solutions line.
Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler works instantly and over time without any silicones! Two types of Hyaluronic Acid provide double the wrinkle filling power instantly filling in wrinkles while also plumping and smoothing them over time.
The active ingredients are Sodium Hyaluronate Filling Spheres, Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid, Tensor Polymer and AD-1 Peptide.
Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler is claimed to contain potent blend of two types of extremely bio-compatible Hyaluronic Acids, plus polymers, peptides and silica to provide double the wrinkle filling power that instantly filling in, plumping and smoothing wrinkles.
Ironically, based on Beautypedia’s review, the two types of hyaluronic acids are barely present in the product to produce result. Well, as I’m still not very familiar with skincare ingredients, I have no idea if the claim is true! And according to the ingredient list, Sodium Hyaluronate and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid are listed on the last and last third respectively which means the amounts are usually minuscule.
This wrinkle filler treatment contains alcohol (second on the ingredient list) which may cause dryness and irritation.
It is FREE of fragrance, silicone and paraben.
For the past few years, I have been painstakingly finding ways to eliminate my nasolabial folds and marionette lines. I really hate those lines and folds as they really make me appearing old and tired-looking.
Similarly to other wrinkle fillers, Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler is claimed to clinically diminish the look of lines and wrinkles instantly. It is also claimed to minimize the number of facial lines over time, in as little as four weeks.
I use the product twice daily using patting motion only on the targeted areas.
Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler‘s ultra-light and soft creamy texture absorb into the skin pretty well. It is FREE of fragrance, silicone and paraben.
[My camera is not able to zoom and capture the details properly, hence the fine lines and wrinkles are not clearly shown.]
After one week of usage, I have noticed very superficial improvement on the fine lines (due to wear & tear) around the nasolabial folds (folds that run from corner of the nose to the mouth). The fine lines look somewhat smoother but the deep wrinkles/folds still look obvious.
After three weeks of usage, the fine lines around nasolabial folds appear softer, smoother and plumped up. I’m quite pleased with the result. The deep wrinkles/folds still look quite obvious though. Maybe I shall incorporate a massage to help soften the deep wrinkles/folds. As it was barely three weeks only, I guess I have to be more patient and wait a little while more before I’m able to see a more significant result after a long period of use.
Other than nasolabial folds, I have also use it on my marionette lines and forehead. After three weeks, there is very slight improvement on the forehead but not so on the marionette lines yet (fold lines from the mouth to the chin). I reckon why it’s difficult to tackle on marionette lines because the cause of marionette lines are mainly due to the loss of volume and collagen, and supporting structure of the skin. The skin on the cheek areas start to pull and hence the marionette lines.
I have yet to try this product on the crow’s feet as I’m kind of worried as it is too close to the eye area. All-in-all, Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler works pretty well on fine lines and as for deep folds and wrinkles, I reckon I have to use it for a longer period in order to determine if it works.
Will I buy it again? Probably yes!
