Erases Wrinkles and Lines in Minutes

While Furlesse works fast, albeit temporarily, on lines and wrinkles, these patches work by smoothing out brow furrows, crow’s-feet and forehead and lip lines by evening out skin and holding it in place. $20, furlesse.com

Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint is one of those products that does it all—and, it works pretty fast, too. It contains specially pigmented capsules that release a dose of radiant color for a healthy glow as soon as they come into contact with your skin.
