Now in mid-40s, apart from pigmentation; wrinkles and loss of elasticity are other signs of aging I’ve been trying hard to fight off in the recent years. Though wrinkle is a common sign of aging but I actually could have minimized the look of wrinkles if I have taken good care of my skin when I was younger. I applied nothing at night, not even a moisturizer and I did not apply any sunscreen in the day too until I was in my early 30s.
I first noticed mild fine lines on my forehead and lower eyelid areas during my late 20s. It didn’t bother me much at that time and without realizing it, these fine lines (on my forehead) eventually turned into wrinkles after I reached my late 30s. Hence I will strongly advise you to start an anti-aging regimen if you have not. It’s never too late to start one even if you’re only in your early 20s. Here’s something for you!
Understanding the top concerns of women are fine lines, wrinkles and pores, Kiehl’s chemists offer a new approach to addressing these key concerns, and proudly introduced the highly anticipated Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream, which are officially available from May 2013 onwards.
A couple of weeks ago, I was glad to be one of the first few bloggers to preview Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream.
The preview event was held at The Fullerton Bay Hotel @ Collyer Quay. What a lovely venue with a spectacular view!
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream – S$80 / 50ml
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream, powered with Copper PCA and Calcium PCA, is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkle and pores for a smooth skin complexion in as little as 4 weeks! It is claimed that this wrinkle-fighting reducing formula is clinically demonstrated to significantly improve elasticity by 32% and texture by 26% within 4 weeks.
Developed to strengthen skin’s elasticity, Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream is formulated with powerful micronutrients to help boost elasticity, reduce wrinkles, smooth texture and improve the appearance of pores.
Micronutrients are nutrients required by the human body to function correctly, but in fact cannot be produced by the body. Micronutrients include minerals such as copper and calcium. Micronutrients also include vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folic acid, niacin and riboflavin. Harnessing copper and calcium, in the form of Copper PCA and Calcium PCA, Kiehl’s chemists developed a formulation built to improve the appearance of aging skin.
Copper acts directly on fibroblasts to stimulate the production of elastin and Calcium helps improve hydration of the skin barrier and stimulate rapid cell turnover. And Calcium also aids in collagen formation and protein structuring in DNA and RNA.
Do you know loss of elasticity actually begins in our 20s with the slow progressive decrease and alteration of our elastin and collagen fibers? It is one of the fundamental reasons why fine lines, wrinkles and pores begin forming.
To protect and improve skin elasticity, three skin areas need to be addressed:
- Organize and protect skin’s elastic fiber network
- Protect and strengthen the skin barrier
- Restore hydration
The ingredient list is hidden at the bottom of the jar. Spotted some amazing ingredients, pretty impressed with its formulation.
It has a soft creamy texture that absorbs into the skin easily. It doesn’t leave any greasy residue upon application. There is no synthetic fragrance added which is a good thing.
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream – S$65 / 15ml
Utilizing the power of Copper PCA and Calcium PCA, Kiehl’s chemists extended this efficacious combination to its Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream. Developed to target serious aging concerns in the delicate eye area, this preparation is demonstrated to visibly correct the appearance of wrinkles and smooth skin texture.
A consumer study was performed, within 4 weeks : 80% reported crow’s feet visibly reduced and 81% reported fine lines visibly reduced.
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream also contains Ceramides (to protect skin’s moisture barrier) and Caffeine (to decrease the appearance of puffiness).
I like its light silky soft yet creamy texture that glides over the skin easily. Similarly to the face cream, this eye cream doesn’t leave any greasy residue upon application and it doesn’t have any fragrance scent at all.
I can’t wait to try out both products soon, do stay tuned for the review.
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream will be available at all Kiehl’s stores from May 2013 onwards.
