In my last post I had mentioned Anavita Skincare Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream is one of my May Favorites. I have been using this product for over 2 weeks now and I have noticed subtle differences before and after. This cream is supposed “…to improve skin texture, smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles, firm, tighten, tone and moisturize skin.”
Ingredients include: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate (and) PEG-100 Stearate, Stearic Acid, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline), Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (Matrixyl), Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate
Directions: Apply morning and evening to cleansed face, neck or body. Place a pea-sized dollop on a finger and dab bits of the cream on the areas needing treatment. Massage gently with upward strokes until absorbed. Visible results in 2 to 4 weeks with continuing improvement for 12 weeks with regular use.
It’s also cruelty free and contains NO parabens, sulfates or drying alcohol nor does it clog pores. It also works best in conjunction with a Vitamin C or Retinol based serum (I use this with Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate).
This product comes in a very HEAVY jar and it holds 1.7 fl. oz. of the product. The cream is extremely (super-duper) rich, thick, and creamy, it’s so thick that you need to use the jar walls to scoop out the product with your fingers (side note: if Anavita is reading this, it would be great if you included a little scoop to get the cream out). It also has a light and pleasant citrus scent (see ingredients).
A little bit of the product covered my whole face and when applied, I do feel some mild tingling, but I wasn’t bothered by it nor did my skin become irritated. It also doesn’t feel oily when applying, or look oily, or feel oily afterwards. I feel like it keeps my skin from becoming too oily throughout the day.
So far I am really loving this cream! I’m well past two weeks and have already noticed a significant difference and I use this daily during the mornings and evenings. My skin tone has evened out and I basically don’t want to change my routine nor try other skincare products anymore, because this cream is just so good!
I feel like my skin is back in its 20’s again, which is basically how good this cream is for me! For a while during my 20s, I had the best looking skin. I didn’t even need to wear makeup, but the only thing was that my skin would get really oily because of the products I was using to achieve my great skin during that time. Unfortunately, I couldn’t handle how oily my skin would get and so I switched around a bit. My skin hadn’t been as nice or vibrant looking and I really didn’t want to walk around looking oily-shiny all the time. And now I seemed to have found the product that answered my 20-something-year old self. It’s just too bad I’m almost 40 now… haha
