Firm And Fill Without Freezing
By Diane Seltzer , Contributing Writer |
How could I say no to La Roche-Posay's Redermic, which announced its arrival as Daily Fill-In, Anti-Wrinkle, Firming Care for my face and neck? This product could accomplish three of the many things I want to do for my 41-year-old skin.
Centered around vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and madecassoside, this product has a wonderfully light consistency that absorbs easily into the skin, yet does not evaporate so quickly that you feel like you want to moisturize again right away. I have used it in the morning before putting on my makeup, and it made my skin feel very smooth and soft; the subtly uneven texture due to fine lines, pores and imperfections seemed to disappear. My foundation went on beautifully, and my face felt terrific all day long.
I have also used Redermic without putting makeup on over it. When I do, my skin feels hydrated, supple, and and even-textured all day long, like there is the faintest, most unobtrusive layer of protection smoothing out the skin's surface.
The firming and filling formulas I've used in the past have made me feel like I have basically shellacked my face and frightened my skin into feeling taut and firm. But Redermic produces the absolute opposite sensation, thankfully, so now I don't have to feel claustrophobic upon applying an anti-aging product.
(Bonus points: my sweetie gave me a kiss on the face after I applied Redermic and said, “Mmm, you smell good!”)
