Truth In Aging Olympics- Anti-Aging Serums
AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum ($149 for 30ml in the TIA shop). I am coming to the end of my bottle after four months and there is no doubt that I will be buying a new one. I started seeing effects with AQ’s serum after only two weeks and I am pleased to say that it has stayed the course. AQ’s formula is simple: a couple of vitamins, lactic acid and glycerin with the dominant ingredient being the active human fibroblast conditioned media, of which AQ claims there is a concentration of 42%. This serum really focuses on wrinkle repair and overall skin rejuvenation. Read the full review
Your Best Face Control ($160 in the TIA shop). The newly reformulated Control is better than extremely good and I can’t imagine how I got on without it – my skin looks firm and refreshed and keeps my skin moisturized throughout the night (something that menopause was conspiring against). A key ingredient is Syn-Hycan and it does battle against sagging skin and double chins. Another (with a similar function) is Relistase. Plus there’s old favorites such as Matrixyl 3000 and the radical scavengers liprochroman-6 and spin trap. The formula really hones in on skin firming, by restoring elasticity.
ReLuma Skin Illuminating Anti-aging Serum ($145 for 20mL and $220 for 30mL in the TIA shop). Similar to AQ, but takes a little longer to kick in. Once it does, ReLuma has a visible effect on wrinkles. ReLuma’s formula is deceptively simple. In fact, it is based on human conditioned media and ReLuma has quite a complex combination of what are essentially proteins. These proteins and growth factors can be isolated as PDGF, VEGF, FGF, IGF3 and TGF-B. It is the combination of different growth factors that is supposed to give results. Read my full review.
