First Peek: Ageless Face and Neck by Michael ToddMonday, January 19, 2015
I received Ageless Face and Neck Cream from Michael Todd in order to facilitate an honest review; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
You guys know how much I love my Soniclear facial brush from Michael Todd (if you want to see that review, you can find it here. I also reviewed the Soniclear Petite travel brush here.), so when I was offered a new product to try out, I was pretty excited about it. The Ageless Face and Neck Cream is brand-spankin' new and I've got the scoop!
A complete anti-aging complex targeting all three sectors in the anti-aging realm: cell regeneration, improved cellular turnover and future protection. Includes next generation Hyalusphere delivery system technology for advanced penetration of encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid, providing a "dewy" complexion.
Neuropeptides smooth wrinkles, creating a flawless surface to reflect light and exude health. Plant stem cells and tripeptides stimulate the cell regeneration process for more youthful looking skin while Sea Fennel extract and Lactic Acid brighten dulled complexions. Fatty acids and Ceramide 3 restore the protective barrier that seals in moisture and protects against harmful environmental factors.
Ideal for mature skin but suitable for all skin types except sensitive. Use daily in the morning and evening on clean dry skin. May be used over a serum or under moisturizer for additional benefits.
Sounds great, right?
I was sent a jar of Ageless, and the packaging is luxe and unique (in my experience, anyway.)
Ooh. Shiny. Also goes perfectly with my Soniclear on the bathroom sink. Not that that's a selling point. ;)
The pump made me do a double-take. It's a very unique set-up where the pump top is a large button, slightly concave towards the center. You push down on it and it dispenses the perfect amount in the center.
Swipe it off with your finger and you're set to go. I love this feature because with jar moisturizers I always get the cream under my fingernail, and at $100 a jar, that can be a little annoying.
The cream itself is fairly thick. I would liken it to a night cream, which is designed to deeply moisturize and stay put.
It's unscented, but I think I would prefer the scent of something light and slightly floral or green if that could be done naturally. The unscented would be good for people with an allergy to scent though.
It didn't irritate my skin or cause any breakouts. It just felt deeply moisturizing, and yes, it made my skin feel a little dewy.
I did a "before" shot (which is a must if you're trying to gauge the effectiveness of skin products. Break out those cameras, ladies!), in which I had washed my face with a gentle cleanser that day, but used no other products. It says you could use it under a moisturizer, but I wanted the "after" to be totally the results of Ageless. I then used only the cream for 7 days.
The "before" is on the left, the "after" on the right. I didn't expect much in the way of results after only 7 days, but what I got was a noticeable decrease of under-eye puffiness, and my usual dark circles are lessened. I didn't notice a diminishing of the fine lines under my eyes, but the "crepey" texture looks much better. Pretty good results for 7 days!
