The vibrant Truth In Aging community is the lifeblood of our site. You all bring your unique experience, knowledge and personalities into every review, and provide a valuable service to all the TIA readers. In honor of Valentine's Day, we are spotlighting the products that you have told us you love the most.

Eye Creams

AQ Skin Solutions Eye Serum ($99 in the shop)
"This product is the only product that keeps my deep-set crows feet at bay. I tried to reduce the frequency to every other day and after a month, I saw the wrinkles around my eyes coming back. After going back to daily use, the crows feet quickly responded." — Valerie

"I love this product because it works. Nothing else is as efficacious at treating puffiness and dark circles. I occasionally try other products that claim to do the same and the puffiness and circles reappear. That is until I go back to using the AQ eye serum." — Alexa

Arcona Eye Dew ($38)
"It is a wonderful eye serum that goes on smoothly, without an oily feeling. It leaves my eyes looking awake and refreshed for the entire day! It is an essential part of my daily routine." — Shannon


Medik8 Firewall ($145 in the shop)
"Quite simply put: Because it actually has removed years from my face!" — Gunilla

Michael Todd KNU Anti-Aging Face Lift Serum ($150)
"I love this. It is my 3rd bottle. Upon application, my face feels instantly tightened. It is not drying and effects increase with use. It contains several new peptides, dmae, snail secretions, and EGF. Can't go a day without it. No irritation with it." — Kimberly

Your Best Face Control ($160 in the shop)
"Its firming and anti wrinkle properties are phenomenal. I haven't found another product that delivers the same results." — Hazel

Osmosis Correct Skin Serum
"It actually lightens my hyperpigmentation." — Kitri


Amarte BB Cream ($55 in the shop)
"It works as moisturizer, light foundation, or even spot cover. It has a great smell and a little goes a long way!" — Stacie

Reluma Moisturizer, Original ($85)
"Skin calming, visible brightening and light moisturization, without a hint of irritation." — Stephanie

Royal Nectar Moisturizing Face Lift with Bee Venom ($55)
"Although I try many great products, it seems that I do go back repeatedly to the Royal Nectar Moisturizing Face Lift with Bee Venom. I find it helps to soften, smooth, moisturize, and firm a bit without any greasy feeling." — Mark

Treatments / Oils

Your Best Face Prep Microdermabrasion ($80 in the shop)
"I think that YBF Prep is the underacknowledged 'star' of the line. It really cleans and exfoliates, deals with pores, and makes every other product and treatment work better!" — Emily

Your Best Face Private Reserve ($75 in the shop)
"It is such a versatile product with absolutely no "nasty" toxins. I use around my eyes, my lips, anywhere. With only four ingredients it is refreshingly simple but highly effective with two of the ingredients being heavy hitting antioxidants. I apply it first after cleansing morning and night before any other products. Just a bit goes along way. Thanks YBF for such a wonderful product!" — Terri


RMS Beauty "Un" Cover Up Concealer 
"The texture, the ingredients, the cute packaging, and the color matches well with my skin." — Lynne


Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($45 in the shop)
"It's difficult to pick just one product out of so many great ones at Truth In Aging, but I truly cannot live without Suntegrity Sunscreen and Primer. Here in sunny California, I use it everyday as a fantastic sunscreen and make-up primer. Coming in at a close second, I love Osmosis Correct, too!" — Denise

Hair Care

Hair Vitality Conditioner ($44)
"My hair is so much healthier when I'm using this conditioner, and there is NOTHING on the market that comes close to it." — Kim

At-Home Devices

Ultra Renew PLUS Ultrasonic LED ($159)
"Nothing firms and lifts for me like the ultrasound feature of the Ultra Renew. I can see the difference if I do half my face straight away and over time it has all but done away with my marionette lines. For that, I will love it forever. The red LED light over time is definitely skin plumping and the blue LED does help with breakouts. I need longer to find out if the green LED is truly helping with hyperpigmentation, but I live in hope." — Sheena

    My experience with AQ was that it takes time to get going - at least six weeks. If I were you, I would use the bottle up before giving up on it. But not everything works for everyone. Also since you mention dark circles being the main concern, it could be worth thinking about the root cause - which tends to be nasal congestion. It's true! This article has more on the causes of dark under eye circles:

    I've been using AQ Eye Serum for about 7 weeks now, without any results. My issues are circles, puffiness and lines, in that order.

    How long should I give it before I give up and try something else?

    Thank you so much,
