In a couple of short years, I will be forty.
While I’m perfectly okay with that, I am NOT okay with LOOKING forty.
I don’t want wrinkles.
Not even one.
So years ago, I started using products with Retinol, and I've tried to stay out of the sun.
But Retinol products can be iffy, and pricey, so I’ve tried a lot of them with varying degrees of success, and never really found a favorite.
Price: $18 at philosophy.com
I started using Philosophy’s “Help Me” Retinol cream as part of my night-time skin routine about eight weeks ago, and even in that short amount of time, I have noticed a difference in the way my skin looks.
It really does.
And better still, those tiny wrinkles that were forming around my eyes and mouth are gone.
And best of all, I got something I didn’t even bargain for — my slight acne is also gone.
I have had only a few spots in the past eight weeks, which is remarkable.
I’ve suffered from mild acne for almost my entire life.
Is there a downside to “Help Me”?
The only one I can think of is found in the product description on the Philosophy website: pregnant women should consult a doctor before using any Retinol product.
In short, I love Philosophy’s “Help Me.” I’m not searching for another anti-wrinkle product.
Why should I, when I have the best one, right here?
