With Botox, Collagen Fillers as well as the new celeb treatment 'Juvederm' (line filling injections) becoming the latest beauty must-haves, it is no surprise that since it's launch in the UK this year, wrinkle filling serum Tri-Aktline has been a huge hit as well as a growing obsession...!
According to it's science it works in 3 ways, firstly with plant extract 'Gatuline' which relaxes facial tension & reduces expression lines, plus seaweed extract 'Kombuchka' which helps to plump out & smooth the appearance of wrinkles, then finally 'Argireline' that stimulates collagen production in the skin. Their tests also showed that after 4 weeks 83% of users noticed a visible improvement in the appearance of wrinkles with some even noticing instant effects in certain areas.
After looking at feedback from users who have been trying it over the last few months, most have had postive results, some saying that as soon as it was applied they could see an improvement to certain lines & others noticing a smoother appearance to their skin with wrinkles decreasing after a few weeks of use. Most people who have used Botox before did find some similar effects with a smooth appearance near the eyes & mouth, although the results are not as effective as injections themselves, but if using the cream everyday lines & wrinkles will improve & stay away, great news for needle-phobes! One down side though is that the consistancy is a little thick & can be difficult to apply, also you cannot use it under make-up as it won't blend very well. Still over all a good product & certainly cheaper than botox! Available from Boots - £24.99.
Just out from Simple are their new Daily Radiance Cleansing Wipes, Simple wipes are always gentle on the skin & an excellent quick step to removing make-up, however this new addition also contains light reflecting particles which gives a radiant & brightening boost to the skin! £3.99
