Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream - the ultimate in age prevention!

Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream
containing Copper PCA
£42 50ml

Containing Copper PCA, Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream, available with SPF30, is an anti-aging face cream for all ages. It’s a daily moisturiser which is scientifically proven to improve and strengthen skin elasticity by 32% within four weeks.

After cleansing and applied at night and mornings, I found my skin benefited from this amazing face cream after just two weeks. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, prevent new wrinkles forming, smooth skin texture (through hydration) and minimise the appearance of pores from week one. Aging skin with weakened elasticity is visibly wrinkled, has enlarged/irregular-shaped pores and is rough in texture. Improved elasticity in the skin makes it look younger with a smooth appearance, fewer wrinkles, and fewer fine lines and enlarged pores. With the loss of elasticity (the elastin and collagen in our skin) beginning in our 20’s, maintaining elasticity is one early way of preserving the health and youth of your skin. This is a useful cream, an excellent anti-aging cream to use from, I would recommend, the age of 27 or 29 onwards in a skincare routine.

The way this cream works as one of the most technically advanced anti-aging creams you can buy at the moment is through its unique, hydrating combined formula of  Copper PCA, Abyssine, Calcium PCA and Apricot Kernel Oil. Abyssine is a naturally derived survival molecule which thrives under the extreme conditions of heat, pressure and toxicity. Apricot Kernel Oil is high in Vitamin E, aiding fast absorption. I found this cream is instantly absorbed and its smooth texture spreads easily on the skin. Copper is an element naturally present in the skin for its healthy appearance and it multi-functions in this moisturiser. It is an element which stimulates the production of elastin and remodels it. Copper is a vital antioxidant defending the skin against oxidative stress and, with Calcium, it maintains the health of the skin’s moisture barrier. 

I found the Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream visibly reduced fine lines on my forehead in under two weeks and my mid-40s skin gained an overall youthful, relaxed appearance. As a powerful wrinkle reducing cream, it is the mildest and most calming I have ever used, qualifying it for sensitive skincare. Its effect on the skin is completely softening. Apply gently to the neck also.

As one of the best age-erasing creams I have ever used, although not the most firming, I highly recommend the newest  Kiehl’s anti-aging offering in skincare, Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream, £42 for 50ml. Available with SPF30 and as an eye cream, Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream £32 for 14ml. Buy online or at Kiehl’s stores in the UK and worldwide. For the ultimate in age prevention. Fragrance free. Made in the USA.
