Review: Eskinol Ageless Night Cream

Hello! I've just dropped in this little blog to continue my recent "responsible blogger streak" which I post (--what a miracle!) in a relatively more frequent manner (yes subjectivity disclaimer but let me have my way!)

Today I'm going to share to you a product that has been on my drawer for the past couple of months now. Specifically, it's been two months since I used this item and I am getting really good results! I would like to share to you this skincare that I think will become a staple in my night time routine (though it only has some limited use in my current skin care steps.)

What I have here is the ESKINOL Ageless Night Cream. What it promises: "Firms skin. Reduces lines and wrinkles. Repairs while you sleep." Like we haven't heard of that before. But as all things go, let's not overly depend on the product description too much.

Because as a user, I can tell you that this is the bomb. :D

Eskinol is a local product and therefore bear the burden of being a popular household-name brand yet remains a disregarded and looked-down product. This is because most people almost always carry the presumption that when it's local, it is LOKAL or inferior than its more high-end counterpart, or that people who use Eskinol are the 'can't-affords'. I won't comment much on that except to say that Eskinol has changed ship, bringing a bigger force and a prettier presence in the local skincare industry.

With its Ageless series, you can definitely see the improvements of the packaging and the streamlined and better aesthetic design on the bottle. During the testing period, I used to just buy the sachet versions of this one (Priced at about P20.00) but after liking it so much, I finally bought the big pot (About P200.00).

More information on the product box right below. Noting the ingredients is always the foremost thing you should do once you pickup a skincare product. It is purported to have "Peptide Plus and Soy Protein" to promote firmness in the skin and lessening of fine lines. In the ingredients list, I am glad to see Niacinamide, Hydrolized Soy Protein, Xanthan Gum, Allantonin, Soluble Collagen on the ingredients list.

Directions to use: Clean your face with soap and water (wiping off with wipes is not enough!) and apply a small amount to the face (or in my case, in the areas of the face where we usually get fine lines.)

Maybe not a lot of people my age would be totally into anti-aging, but the wave of products, advertisements, and even higher overall usage or product consumption are a good indication of rising interest. I personally think that the more we know about our options in skin care, the more it will help us balance on what we want, what we need and what is good for us.

The product itself has the consistency of a cream. It's not runny, but it isn't completely thick either. The best thing for me is that it's not the sticky kind, and it even has the gel kind of feel, but it spreads very, very easily on the face and leaves little to no film which is amazing.

Below I got a dollop to spread out on my hand:

Look ma, no oily film: It has a matte finish!

And from the time that I used this, about early February, I can see that somehow it has contributed to a smoother-looking face, ridding of the little bumps! I love that this is a preventive product, but when push comes to shove, it works in no time.

Eskinol as an addition to my nighttime routine:

I use this ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK. And only during Mondays and/or Fridays. I am just using this for preventive measures, I don't entirely have a lot of lines except for minor ones so it's not a very big deal. I mainly get a lot for my neck area because I have a bad habit of scrunching my neck downwards when I sleep. Lines form though temporarily, but if left alone, the lines can get nasty by becoming PERMANENT. Eskinol Ageless has definitely given me a good chance of fighting those nasty lines away if ever they seem to appear quite frequently.

I follow an entirely different skincare routine for night time now, in accordance to my desire to go natural/organic. So long as I don't have an organic skincare product replacement for my non-organic ones, I keep it. I don't see any inexpensive organic product to give me the same results I got from Eskinol Ageless, so in the meantime, it sits cozy on my shelf!

Thanks for reading!
Keep healthy today~
