Lets talk anti-aging serum(s), the more the merrier

14 March 2016
Anti-aging effects with Filorga Time Zero, EmerginC vitamin C serum and Scientific Organics Peptide Booster Serum.

It’s no secret that my interest for quality skin care  – the kind that targets the effects of aging skin – has no limits. As much as I am totally not interested (I skip these articles altogether) in anything to do with fillers and/or Botox, I devour all information about new – or new to me – products and brands.
Recently I’ve tried and tested Scientific Organics Peptide Booster Serum, Filorga Time-Zero Multi-Correction wrinkles serum and EmerginC Vitamin C serum. So let’s talk serum!

Scientific Organics Peptide Booster

Another anti-aging gem from the Scientific Organics line of EmerginC skin care. This new Peptide Booster Serum targets the mature skin with natural (100%) and organic (70%)  ingredients. Paraben free. It improves skin tone and texture, hydrates and actively fights the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As in tightening, brightening and firming.
The oily texture is lightweight and non-greasy. I find it easy to massage into my face, neck and chest.
Key ingredients are Colhibin PF™ peptide combined with red algae, pomegranate concentrate, kombucha and super-antioxidants.
Too bad I did not make a before-and-after picture since I really see the large pigmentation spot on my left cheek fade. Only within 3 weeks of use! This might have something to do with me ignoring the application tip that says one pump on a clean skin. Uh, I use two.

Available at € 89,00  30 ml

Filorga Time Zero multi-correction wrinkles

The latest of French cosmeceutical brand Laboratoires Filorga is this multiple correction serum. As in multiple wrinkles.
During the launch at a lovely room overlooking Amsterdam at Marcel Wanders HQ last month, Filorga informed us about the formation of deep-, tiredness-, contraction- and surface wrinkles. Hm, I recognise all four of them…
In this – creamy and white – serum high active ingredients (hyaluronic acid, tripeptides and more) target each specific kind of wrinkle. Blend together only at the moment of use, due to the new swirl technique in the bottle. Easy to use, day and night before anti-aging creams. My skin feels smoother and firmer. Paraben free.

Available at ICI Paris XL € 59,90  30 ml

EmerginC Vitamin C serum

Golden oldie. It is now 20 years ago that the sustainable EmerginC brand started with the launch of this Vitamin C serum. We all know that vitamin C is crucial for both health and skin.
I brought this bestseller with me to South Africa last December. The high concentration of Vitamin C fights free-radical damages and is a key co-factor in the production of collagen.
The liquid gel texture is absorbed quickly, easy to use in warm weather and improves skin tone and texture. It fights sun damage and improves pigmentation problems. It really is an all-in-one product and perfect under my SPF50 day cream. You can opt for 12% or 20% Vitamin C serum, which are both very effective. The vitamin C is captured in little peptide balls and released only when broken for optimum effect. Paraben free.

Available at Indigo Cosmetics € 78,95  30 ml

Serum Tip: finish with massaging the back of your hands over your cheecks.

I think our goal is, well mine is, not to look younger but maintain a good skin condition. These three products certainly work. Or should we say a serum (and spf50) a day keeps the wrinkles away? And those who stay must be there for a reason.
