A hard-working day cream that tackles anti-ageing is one of the most expensive skincare purchases you can make, so you want your splurge to be an informed decision. We rigorously tested over 40 creams during the last few months and only included products that deliver results.
There’s always the risk you’re buying into an overinflated market, due to the frustrating pressure on women to remain youthful by whatever means necessary – which usually involves a price hike on anything promising the holy grail of anti-ageing.
But you don’t always have to spend a lot on a moisturiser; there are some very good anti-agers in the high-street price bracket. Also don’t be swayed by expensive advertising and marketing, you’re paying for all those extra costs in your pot of cream.
Of course a moisturiser isn’t going to reverse ageing, but choose wisely and you can certainly slow down the process and also minimise the look of ageing skin.
Fine dehydration lines and age spots can be softened by a good moisturiser and dullness (which is surprisingly ageing), can also be easily remedied with an effective cream. We looked for results that included softened lines, paler age spots, reduced redness and a fresher, more youthful radiance and glow.
