Wrinkle Creams Put to the Test
An effective, nonirritating wrinkle cream is the holy grail of beauty products. But do home antiaging products really work? And do you have to spend a lot to find a good one? We gave real women wrinkle products to try for one month. Here, the honest-to-goodness results:
Murad Resurgence Age-Diffusing Serum, $60 The promise: Made with soy and wild yam extracts, this product says it will stop the breakdown of collagen and encourage elasticity, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It's specially formulated for perimenopausal and menopausal women. The product: Julie, 55, used the serum once a day in the morning. It wasn't greasy and absorbed easily. Only a squirt was needed, so the product lasts a long time. The result: Although she liked the way it felt on her skin, Julie didn't notice any change in her skin.
Olay Regenerist Collection, $19.99 per product The promise: Fortified with amino-peptides, these products promise to decrease wrinkles by regenerating the outer layer of skin. The product: Winnie, 56, applied the daily regenerating serum at night, which caused a slight tingling sensation. This was relieved by application of the perfecting cream and enhancing lotion, which she also used under her makeup in the morning. She has sensitive skin, but this product proved gentle. The result: Her skin felt soft and touchable, and she noticed a slight softening of the lines around her eyes.
