It seems that as soon as I hit 40, my whole face decided to rebel. One of the most noticeable issues I had were the deep lines that had formed between my eyebrows aka glabellar rhytides. I guess I do frown a lot and this was the karma from frowning. Either way, I had to do something about it rather than have botox injections. I tried several anti-ageing serums that did nothing for them and I was beginning to believe that I would never find a topical skin remedy that was going to smooth them out. I was not looking for a huge miracle; just a tiny one 😄
So one day I was looking on one of my favourite websites, lookfantastic, and I saw that they were now stocking Paula’s Choice products which is great as I order in bulk to save on postage as I live in Cyprus and everything I love you cannot get here 😡
While browsing through Paula’s products I spotted the Resist Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Acid Booster. The regular sized which is 20 ml is expensive (€44.91), I have to warn you, so I bought the trial size which is 3.5ml (€9.00). When it arrived I couldn’t wait to try it.
Paula’s Choice website advises you to use it after your cleansing routine and you can either add it to moisturizer or serums before you apply them or you can apply it straight to your skin which I chose to do and adding the serums and creams after. You can also apply it to your undereye area which I love.
With all the other serums I had been using I didn’t have much hope for this product, not because I don’t have faith in Paula’s products, some of them I have used are great! Just I believed nothing was going to help these lines.
After a few days of using the Resist Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Acid Booster I looked in the mirror after I had cleansed my skin and saw how much smoother the glabellar lines had become. Seriously, I was in shock! I also noticed that my skin was plumper and appeared more hydrated and firmer and I began to get excited! Hehehe!
Over the following weeks the glabellar lines became smoother and smoother. Of course, they are not going to disappear completely from a serum but the effect it has had on my skin tone in general is amazing. As soon as I saw that this serum was working I ordered the regular size and before this ran out I ordered another. Just today my second bottle arrived from lookfantastic.
I haven’t got enough good things to say about this product and I have been and do recommend it to anyone needs to smooth out lines but I always believe that prevention is easier so even if you haven’t started forming lines yet and your skin hasn’t started sagging (for lack of a better word) it is better to act now rather than later.
