Elizabeth Prevage Anti-Ageing Night Cream
Active Ingredients: Idebenone, retinol, vitamin C, lemon peel ferment, tomato extract
How can one escape from this product? It’s a brainchild of 2 giants – Elizabeth Arden and Allergan, makers of Botox. The star ingredient here is Idebenon,which is the flavour of the month. It has been touted to improve wrinkles, fine lines, elasticity, etc. Studies so far has shown some promising results, and Idebenone indeed has some potent anti-oxidant properties.
There is a drawback however: the price. This product is one of the most expensive in the market, which is a big minus in these economic tumultuous times.
ROC Retin-Ox Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Serum
Active ingredients: Retinol, zinc gluconate, vitamin C, vitamin E.
I am a big fan of retinoids, despite its negative publicity in recent years. ROC Retin-Ox series contains probably the most researched, most proven anti-ageing ingredient in the world – retinoids. The derivative here is retinol, which is one of the few retinoids available over the counter. The concentration here is decent, and from personal feedback, this product does work wonders on those who have used it. Plus, it is more affordable, being priced below $100!
