Whether it’s from stress, lack of sleep, or simply just because, we all have those days where we want to give our skin a little extra pampering. But with so many anti-aging skincare options that promise the world when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles and banishing dark circles, it can seem daunting to decide what’s really worth incorporating in your anti-aging skincare routine–that is, until now. We turned to Ipster reviews from past Glam Bags and rounded up the anti-aging products our community can’t stop raving about to give you a comprehensive list.
Ready to slather on skincare for aging skin that actually lives up to the hype? Take a peek at some of the best anti-aging skincare products according to Ipster reviews below.
Gentle enough to use on all skin types, this peel-off mask is made with propolis–one of Queen Cleopatra’s go-to skincare secrets. It's also a powerful acne-fighter and pore clearer, and encourages cell turnover and growth. A low dose of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) exfoliate and remove impurities, all while leaving you with a clear, supple glow that's safe for even the most sensitive skin.
“Works great. Skin felt amazing after,” said one Ipster, while Ipster @LadyMPhantom wrote: "Not only is it fun to peel and unclog your pores, but it also helps improve your pores and skin elasticity/smoothness."
This Ipster favorite is packed with vitamin C and grapeseed oil to enhance your natural glow and brighten your complexion, while jojoba oil and shea butter provide much-needed hydration. It’s an antioxidant-rich cocktail that serves as a major line of defense against daily aggressors (like free radicals and sun damage). Ipsters especially love the lightweight gel consistency and the way it reduces the appearance of fine lines. “Great serum! So moisturizing and [an] amazing wrinkle reducer,” wrote one Ipster. “This is working very well for me. My skin is smooth, the tone seems even, pores look pretty good, and laugh lines look softer,” wrote another.
This hydrating gel is like an at-home spa treatment in a bottle thanks to its calming, cooling properties. Not only does this moisturizer feel great when it goes on, but it also employs Ultra Filling Spheres™ to visibly smooth the look of fine lines and uneven skin texture, all while protecting your skin against environmental aggressors that are behind premature signs of aging. “I’m pretty sure this stuff made me look instantaneously younger,” wrote one Ipster. “Almost gel-like consistency, great subtle fragrance, absorbs well and leaves a dewy finish,” wrote another.
One of the best things you can do in an anti-aging skincare routine actually comes before your skincare. Yup, you guessed it: it's removing your makeup properly. This gentle-yet-powerful cleanser does just that, removing all your makeup while also giving your skin the nourishing hydration it craves. It removes even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup while delivering potent anti-aging and hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal, and niacinamide. The result? A clean, smooth complexion. “Takes off every bit of makeup without stripping my skin. My face is clear and glowing after using this product!” Wrote one Ipster, while another Ipster wrote "Smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling great."
As the years go by it becomes increasingly difficult to keep signs of stress and late nights from showing up on our face (and under our eyes). Want to reduce puffiness and dark circles once and for all? Look no further than this cream. It's made with hyaluronic acid to boost lymphatic circulation (which is a fancy way of saying it’ll reduce puffiness), all while hydrating your skin and brightening dark circles. It’s also super lightweight, making it perfect to apply under concealer–no creasing concerns here. As one Ipster wrote, this firming eye cream “gives me that I got 8hrs of sleep look!”
While many products and eye creams promise to reduce dark circles, it can be extremely difficult to find something that truly does the trick. But the verdict is in, and Ipsters are wowed by their results after using this lightweight eye gel. “Works awesome for helping get rid of dark puffy eyes,” said one Ipster, while another added: “This stuff is amazing! Works wonders on puffy, tired eyes. I was skeptical but I love it!” The secret behind the impressive results? Powerhouse ingredient niacinamide manages to minimize fine lines and puffiness all while brightening up dark circles. You’re welcome.
Looking for something firming to add to your skincare routine? Look no further than this sculpting serum that contours your face, jaw, and neckline. Sodium deoxycholate smoothes and defines your skin texture, while antioxidant-rich turmeric root soothes, hydrates, and nourishes skin. As one Ipster wrote: “Yaaaaaaas! Gimmie time machine in a tube!! Bye bye wrinkles, don't need no surgeon when you have your own 'private Dr.'”
Want to bid goodbye to crow’s feet? This retinoid-infused eye serum is ultra-firming and brightening, all while reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Ipsters love the way it rejuvenates their look. ”My eye area looks so smooth, bright, and refreshed my family and friends keep asking why do I look so fantastic!” wrote one Ipster.
One thing to note: as with all retinoids, you'll want to make sure you slather on a product with SPF after. For more hydrating sunscreens you can add to your anti-aging skincare routine, check out our list of the best moisturizers with SPF.
Revive your complexion with this powerful peptide cocktail that’s like a facial in a bottle. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide get to work hydrating, filling in fine lines, firming, and smoothing your skin. A little goes a long way with this potent potion, which has the most amazing gel-like consistency, making it a major game-changer for anyone who doesn’t like the feeling of heavy wrinkle creams. No greasy residue to worry about here. “OMG, this is my new favorite wrinkle cream. I have never used anything even close to how good this stuff is!” wrote one Ipster, while another wrote "This feels amazingly moisturizing without being heavy or oily. Even my boyfriend steals it!"
Want to hydrate your skin all while improving its elasticity? Look no further than this plumping, nourishing moisturizer that’s packed with vitamin C and green tea (two major antioxidants) to brighten your complexion and provide protection against free radicals and sun damage. It also supports collagen production and evens out your skin tone, leaving you with a radiant glow. Ipsters praise it for actually making a difference. “This stuff has revived my face. Love it!” One Ipster wrote, while another wrote: “Absolutely in love with this cream! My skin is very smooth, nourished and glowing.”
This game-changing moisturizer hydrates for up to 24 hours thanks to advanced hyaluronic acid technology that works to restore suppleness and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Get ready to embrace a seriously smooth face. “This is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used,” wrote one Ipster. “I could tell a good difference in my skin and the elasticity,” wrote another.
