When I hit my 30’s my skin changed in so many ways but one of the more annoying changes was that I found a new line on my face almost every day which is quite scary!
Botox is becoming more popular to correct lines and wrinkles but if you either don’t want to go down that route, or want to use some good skincare that will compliment your treatment then I have the answer for you!
Vichy Liftactiv Advanced Filler contains a combination of two super anti-ageing ingredients, pure retinol and LR2412 which work together to smooth out the surface of the skin and fill in the deepest of wrinkles. Partcularly frown lines between the eyebrows, nasolabial folds on either side of the nose/mouth, wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks and the fine lines above the lips (the ones that make your lipstick bleed!). These are the areas that show telltale signs of ageing first and give you that permanent sad, tired expression.
Now for the Science bit:
Pure retinol is one of the most powerful anti-wrinkle products in existance and Liftactiv Advanced Filler contains this in a formula which has been adapted to sensitive skin. Vichy have managed to add the highest concentration (0.2%) ever used in a pharmacy brand skin care product. It increases skin density and helps to fill in the deepest wrinkles.
In addition to this, 2% LR2412 enhances cell renewal and boosts the skins natural barrier: skin looks brighter, its surface is smoother and fully hydrated. Deeper down, it accelerates epidermal repair and reinflates and re-plumps the skin’s natural mattress. Deep wrinkles are filled in and smoothed.
I have been using this every night for a couple of weeks now so I am still trying it out, but my skin seems to love it so far. I didn’t have any reaction to it although it does warn that you should try it every second day until your skin gets used to the retinol as it can irritate sensitive skin. I pop it on before bedtime and I have noticed my skin is softer and appears more radiant and hydrated which is a great result so far. I’m hoping to see a wrinkle free face any day now 🙂 Although I’m sure Vichy don’t do miracles unfortunately 😦 😉
You can buy Vichy Liftactiv Advanced Filler at larger Boots stores and selected pharmacies and it will set you back a reasonable €35
