Seeing Signs of Ageing on your Skin???

 

You’re not alone! Say Bye-Bye to Wrinkles and Fine Lines with the help of the Avène YsthéAL Collection ❤️  The products in this line are formulated to help you fight signs of ageing by smoothening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restoring your skin’s radiance. Not just that, these will also protect your skin from free radicals and bring back firmness in our skin. So, are you ready to transform your skin?… ‘Coz I am!

 

I posted a while ago that I added two products from the Avène YsthéAL Collection into my skincare routine and today I’ll be sharing with you my thoughts on the Avène YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion.

So, Avène markets the YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion as follows, “Lightweight, preventative anti-aging emulsion for combination skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and help stop future signs of aging. Formulated with an exclusive patented combination of ingredients to smooth away fine lines, reinforce skin elasticity and restore skin radiance without irritation. The lightweight texture absorbs quickly into the skin, preserving its youthful appearance.”

 

I’m in my early 30’s and truth be told, age is starting to catch up … I can see the fine lines and wrinkles on my skin… crows feet and smile lines becoming more prominent. When I decided it was time to incorporate a few Anti-Ageing products into my skincare routine, I did a lot of research and decided to stick with a brand that I trust and love with all my heart – Avène and chose the YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion as my first anti-ageing product.

Why YsthéAL? Well, because this line from Avène aims at fighting and working specifically against:

 

  • fine lines and wrinkles

 

  • uneven skin tone and irregular skin texture

 

  • lack of luminosity

The Avène YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion is best suited for normal to combination skin types and is a lightweight formula that is fast absorbing into the skin. This emulsion/lotion helps to visibly reduce the early signs of ageing and has a patented blend of ingredients that will fight early signs of ageing like the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Key Ingredients

Retinaldehyde – an ingredient that is believed to be more effective than Retinol, however much less irritating to the skin. This makes the Avène YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion suitable for people with sensitive skin. It also brightens the skin and smoothes away wrinkles.

 

GGO or Glycylglycine oleamide –  acts as the protector and reinforces elasticity of the skin. It also boosts the efficacy of Retinaldehyde and increases Vitamin A reserves in the skin.

 

Pre-Tocopheryl – this helps preserve the Vitamin A reserve in the skin. It is a photo-stable form of Vitamin E that provides antioxidant protection to the skin.

 

Avène Thermal Spring Water – helps to calm, soothe and soften skin.

My Thoughts

I’ve been using the Avène YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion for a few weeks and I really enjoy using this product in my night-time skincare routine. The emulsion comes in a sleek pump dispenser bottle and is a nice rich texture with a peach colour. There is no fragrance in the product, which makes it great for those who have sensitive skin.

I love the texture of this emulsion because it soaks into the skin beautifully. I would say it takes a few minutes to sink in completely and makes my skin look very dewy and moisturised. It is not at all oily or sticky, in fact, it makes the skin appear healthy, which I love!

It has only been a few weeks of using the Avène YsthéAL Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion so I can’t really comment on wrinkles and fine lines disappearing altogether, but I will say that it makes my skin feel very smooth, bouncy and fresh in the mornings. I use this in my night-time skincare routine as the last step and use about 2 pumps for my face and neck. I have never experienced any stinging or irritation with this product and I always use a good Sunscreen/ SPF in the mornings while using this product, I highly recommend you do too 🙂

 

Another thing that I LOVE about this product is the ‘airless’ packaging, which means that the product never comes in contact with air and so the formula remains fresh and intact always! The pump dispenser has a twist top to open and close the pump and it has a small arrow with a droplet sign to show if the pump dispenser is Open or Closed (see images below). Also, the pump never clogs up with the product – a huge thumbs up!
