Do You Have a Favorite Product for (gasp) Aging Skin?

12 Jun

Man, this getting older thing is rough. I’ve pretty much given up on wearing high heels and my body sounds like a cracking drum solo when I stretch in the morning. Of course, it’s better than the alternative…

So, as I’m getting older I’m trying to do even better at taking care of my skin. I’ve been using a really great moisturizer for probably 20+ years that I swear by, but I’ve recently added a couple new products to my routine. I’d love to know if you have any products that you are obsessed with, so leave me a comment and let me know what you recommend!

Here’s what I use:

Origins A Perfect World SPF 40 Age-Defense Moisturizer
Find it here

I’ve been using this moisturizer forever and love it for keeping my face hydrated and protected from the sun. They changed the formula a year or so ago to a higher SPF, so the consistency is a little thick now… but it does such a good job that I just slap a little power on the shiny areas and go on my way!

Here’s what I’ve recently added:

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum
Find it here

I received a deluxe sample of this a while ago and I’ve been using it religiously each day in the am and pm. It goes on like a super light lotion and claims to visibly and dramatically minimize multiple signs of aging. It is supposed to “reduce fine lines, diminish pores, even skin tone and give you plumper, smoother skin.” Over the past 6 weeks of using this serum, my skin tone is definitely more even and my fine lines around my eyes are much less noticeable. The full size is pricy at $77, but the sample has lasted me for so long that I think it is worth the investment.

Aveda tulasara Wedding Masque Eye Masque

I had an online return to go back to Aveda, so I had a store credit to spend. I’ve been wanting a really good eye cream and this one was highly recommended online and by the Aveda sales associate. It is a super tiny container for $55, but you use such a minuscule amount that it will probably last me a year or longer. According to Aveda, “the ultra-rich crème masque brightens skin around the ye area overnight and contains a potent turmeric extract to help visibly even skin tone by diminishing the look of dark circles over time.” I’ve been using this for 2 weeks so far and I do think my eyes look brighter and less puffy. Also, using this in conjunction with my serum has really impacted the fine lines that were starting around my eyes.

Now it’s your turn… what do you use? Please share in the comments!

    I use the same Origins SPF cream, every day and I love it! Keeps me from having to put actual sunscreen on my face and it works really well. I should probably try the serum again. I think I got a sample but didn’t really understand what it was for or when to use it, so I have a pile of things like that I should go through.
