Apothederm Firming Serum reduces visible signs of aging with a patented blend of SmartPeptides® and deeply hydrating ingredients in a luxurious-feeling serum. Its powerful botanicals protect skin while fighting pre-existing wrinkles and dark spots for a refined, ageless complexion. After a 30-day test period, Marta saw its firming and brightening effects take hold
, and we're sure that you'll be equally satisfied.
In a clinical study of Apothederm's Firming Serum, 94% of participants reported firmer skin in 14 days while 84% reported a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 14 days. With a potent blend of peptides
and hydrating actives, this serum will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it firms for invigorated skin. Moisturizing and and conditioning ingredients further refine and brighten your complexion for a refreshed glow.
Tested for at least 30 days and reviewed by Marta:
Apothederm is not just any old anti-aging cosmetic brand, it is owned by a bio-tech company that owns the patents to 100,000 peptide sequences. Two of them made it in to Apothederm Firming Serum and there’s nothing more of a come-on to a peptide-phile like me than a serum with unique, proprietary peptides.
Apothederm (at least in my case) was a slow starter. For three weeks or so, I swore I was seeing no effects whatsoever. This has happened to me in the past with anti-aging products that proved—eventually—to be stellar and so I wasn’t about to quit. Although not especially hopeful, I kept going until I was in the fifth or sixth week of my test. Then suddenly Apothederm really came into its own.
It was indeed firming and brightening. When brushing my teeth in the morning, I'd catch a glimpse of my plump and glowing cheeks. Not bad. It might even be keeping rosacea down. After two months (and I still seem to have plenty left in the bottle), I’d say Apothederm Firming Serum punches above its price point.
I found Firming Serum pleasantly hydrating and this seems to be due to trehalose, a natural sugar that has rehydrating and water binding properties, and phospholipids, a kind of fatty acid that attracts water and holds on to it. There’s also palmaria palmata extract, a seaweed known as dulse or sea lettuce and a proven antioxidant (source).
There are a couple of potential irritants in the formula, although my skin has been spared any reactions: pentylene glycol and disodium EDTA. These aside, I recommend Apothederm Firming Serum as a decently priced anti-ager that does what it says on the tin, as well as imparting a nice glow and hydrating. Just be prepared for a lingering romance.
