The new anti-ageing moisturisers and serums for youthful-looking skin
Dr Lewinn's Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Plumping Gel, $74.90
It is right there in its name: formulated to plump up your skin with caviar-like collagen capsules, this anti-ageing serum by Dr Lewinn’s is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while promoting firm skin.
We’re talking hydration, improved elasticity, and lifting and firming that precious visage.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream, $89
You’ll adore this whipped cream-textured night moisturiser, which is infused with fresh, hand-picked lotus extracts. It detoxifies and destresses skin, minimises and prevents the first signs of ageing, boosts radiance and fights free radical damage as you snooze.
The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream also has a delicate peach scent to help you relax, and will leave your face feeling silky smooth the next morning.
Lancome Absolue Soft Cream, $450
The gentle moisturiser is infused with Grand Rose extracts to help your skin regenerate in as little as three weeks.
What’s special about the Lancome Absolue Soft Cream, is its unique thick-thin-thick texture. It starts off feeling rich on your skin, to nourish and comfort, then melts into a lightweight texture for better and faster absorption, and finally, it thickens again to plump up skin and give it a soft glow.
We especially loved how soft our complexion felt after just a few days of use.
Giorgio Armani Beauty Crema Nuda, $250
The weightless anti-ageing cream is infused with the brand’s exclusive ingredient reviscentalis, and moisturising agents like hyaluronic acid and mannose, to boost skin regeneration, soften and plump, while providing intense hydration for up to 12 hours.
But what truly sets the Giorgio Armani Beauty Crema Nuda apart is its hybrid pigment technology. A combination of transparent and ‘skin affinity’ pigments work together to instantly blur out imperfections and illuminate skin, leaving you with a dewy glow, and a perfect-looking complexion.
Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Cream, $115
Shiseido’s Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Cream works by optimising the communication between sensory nerves and your brain to improve the skin’s cellular response and trigger its self-repair process. This helps to prevent damage to skin, delay the ageing process and leave you with a healthier complexion.
And if that’s not enough, the Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Cream is infused with an algae complex to smooth and prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, tea extract to fight pigmentation and boost radiance, as well as yuzu seed extract to improve skin elasticity.
Laneige Time Freeze Emulsion, $65
The Laneige Time Freeze Emulsion is infused with musk mallow water and carob bean extract to improve skin elasticity and soften fine lines. It also contains low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid that can penetrate the deeper layers of skin to intensely hydrate and leave you with a firmer, more supple complexion.
The formula also helps to balance the skin’s oil and water ratio to keep your complexion soft, plump and shine-free.
Albion Embeage Cream Parfait, $755
This luxe anti-ageing moisturiser in an indulgence, but it’s worth every cent. It stimulates the production of DHEA in the skin, a hormone that works on physiological ageing, to soften and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, repair damage, prevent the over-production of melanin, detoxes and boosts cell regeneration.
The result: a younger-looking, healthy complexion. And because the cream is chock-full of active ingredients, a little goes a long way. Just a soya bean size amount is enough for the whole face.
Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream, $96
The Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream is like a protein shot to your skincare regime. It is made with a cocktail of signal peptides, growth factors, supportive amino acids, as well as pygmy waterlily extract, to visibly improve the appearance of skin’s tone, texture and firmness.
Used over time, it will help treat lines, wrinkles and sun damage, while also leaving your complexion more resilient. The anti-ageing moisturiser is also free of silicones, chemical screens, colourants, perfumes and fragrant essential oils, making it great for sensitive skin.
