As a busy working woman, when I buy a product for my skin I expect it to live up to my expectations, to do what is says on the tin and most of all, to work fast. I don't have time to sit around and wait for possible results, just to discover a month later that once again I wasted my money. Am I too fussy? Am I expecting too much? I don't think so.
The battle against time and ageing is a tough one and has to be fought with the best possible weapons, sorry, products. When buying anti-ageing skin treatments most customers are looking for instant results and only then, they will continue to apply them and consequently buy them.
Leading brands are constantly investing in cutting-edge technologies to enhance the performance of their remedies, one of these is Elizabeth Arden, which has recently released in the UK Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum (£160.00) only available at Jonh Lewis, ahead of its national launch in January. The serum contains a formula that starts working in 15 minutes and promises immediate improvements in fine lines, radiance, luminosity and also smooths skin.
Also recently launched on the market is ReVive Pore Correctif Multi-Action Repair Serum (£149.90) which acts from the top layer of the skin, encouraging skin cells to flatten and pores to reduce. The results are instant and the surface of the skin looks more radiant, improved, with a younger looking texture.
A favourite among celebrities is the best seller Intraceutical Rejuvenate Daily Serum (£130.95). This products promises quick results in just one step, by lifting, toning and hydrating the skin. It promotes the production of natural collagen and elastin, improving texture and elasticity, thanks to Hyalauronic Acid, Vitamin E and C. It can be used as a primer before make-up as well.
French brand Yves-Rocher also has a brand-new treatment that protects and regenerates the skin, smooth wrinkles and doesn't cost the earth, its name? Anti-Age Global Creme Fondamentale Jour (currently £23.90 instead of £46.00 on www.yves-rocher.co.uk) uses fourth generation natural plant cells, which act as a protective, moisturising barrier retarding signs of ageing and reducing wrinkles.
Another must-have, fast acting product is the new Lancome Genifique Eye Light-Pearl (£44.00), designed to illuminate and rejuvinate the contour of the eyes. The bottle has a clever single-dose applicator that also lightly massages the delicate skin around the eye, promoting circulation and reducing wrinkles and dark circles.
