Has anyone tried products that have fillers that temporarily reduce the look of fine wrinkles?

I wasn't sure if this topic would go under skin care or make up.

I remember Aloette had one called prep and prime or something like that....it kinda smoothed out the appearance (a primer).

You might also try other primers....Laura Mercier has a very nice primer you use before or after moisturizer. Smashbox has one too....lot's of brands have them. BUT....if you are open to suggestions, Monistat Anti-Chaffing Gel....I know....but hear me out....he he he. Has the same ingrediants as the other primers and works LOVELY! Smoothes, feels like silk, evens out tone and texture and makes pores and fines lines look smoother.

Arbonne has a RE9 Lift product too, or the Eye Cream. But if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to try out first, your first bet would be one of the above. Oh...Aloette product is expensive.

just try collagen herbal or kojic acid (soap or cream form). they are excellent for skin rejuvenation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Kelly referred to an Aloette product; the name is "line freeze". I used it on a fairly deep frown line and it does plump out lines and wrinkles. The "wrinkle" here is that it is fairly expensive and you have to reapply at least every 3-4 hours -- that is -- if you're going somewhere and want to impress the group how young you look.

I tried Strivectin HS which is supposed to give you instant gratification and with use of about a month and a half permanent results -- I didn't see any results even on minute wrinkles.

On the lower end of the price scale, Olay and L'Oreal are supposed to have wrinkle fillers -- -- commercials say they work ....

I have tried the Olay and it seems to work "some". I don't know about the L'Oreal. I just know that putting makeup on over the fillers don't go on very well. I must be doing something wrong.

I got a free olay wrinkle filler and gave it to a friend of my mother's in London. She swears by it and is happy it has now hit the shops there. That said, she did say it is like a glue that will kind of flake after several hours. The way fillers work from my understanding is one of two mechanisms, they tighten skin like a glue and then the glue-like substance seeps into the folds to make them appear filled in the other way is to irritate them to puff out. Kind of like lip plumpers. I suppose some may also be humectants (attract water from air) to fill the wrinkles out too. In any event they all have some effect. I am more the permanent type and would actually love to try out porcine collagen which has just been approved by the FDA. It actually is semi-permanent as it binds with and stimulates your own collagen to kick in. The only place I really have a wrinkle though to try it is on the sides of my mouth, smile lines that I have had since I was about 16 so I am not sure I would do it. I only have very fine lines this is for dynamic wrinkles (not yet approved for lips though).

Lexi2009,

Do you know where we can read info on the 'porcine collagen'? It sounds interesting.

I tried the Loreal line filler, two tubes in fact but was really disappointed! It did nothing at all for my skin. After two months there were no changes in my wrinkles. It was just a waste of my time and money.

My mother uses the Olay filler and it works great but she just told me they discontinued it and asked me to see if they still had it in USA which I have yet to see it.

Mony and all, the fact is with the fillers they are basically just good as temporary and very superficial plumpers-nothing long term.

Isn't that such a bummer though, you hear of people getting these amazing results. So you go out there full of anticipation, ....can't wait... you finaly get the product for what? ...You spent your fortune and the product does absolutely nothing but sit there in't is pretty bottle and does nothing for you..... ( sorry the bottle here mentionned kinda sounds like my Huney Ex!!!) sorry had to put that one in!
We need to find something as individual aas our DNA is.... hmmmmmmmm! scary thought eh?

Hi Martha,

Many promises are made by cosmetic companies and I remain sceptical. A friend once bought a product that promised it would reduce the look of a small scar; it had no effect whatsoever and cost £30!

What is amazing is the eye roll-on which smoothes the under-eye area and it is applied before make-up. Nevertheless, you can get the same effect if you paint the under-eye area with a very fine film of an egg-white and use a fine brush,

Warm regards,

redrose

Hi Martha, the only one that I use (but didn't put down because I couldn't find it- that is how often I use it!) is Tri-Akline Instand Deep Wrinkle Filler. It works great on me and does not cause my acnee to flare up, I purchased it at Shoppers Drug Mart. It's reasonably priced and you get 30 ml. ...It claims that 83% of subjects reported a noticeable visible filing of wrinkles after 4 weeks... Now I don't know about that, but I do use it to fill in the lines when I have somewhere important to go to. Hope this helps you.

I get regular emails from Total Beauty Dot Com and today they had a great review for Two Faced Line filler. Just Google porcine collegen and you will get lots of information about it.

Martha,

The one that I use and absolutely love is Relax-a-line from Cellular Skin RX.
I use it twice a day after my Vit C serum. You have to use it twice a day every day for 30 days..then once a day. I have seen a significant improvement (all but gone) on my forehead and between the eyes. I use it after my sunscreen/moisturizer. I included a link if you want to check it out.

Forgot to add that I use a primer after...Monistat Anti-Chaffing Gel. It really does work. Works better than the most expensive ones for me..SMASHBOX, DR PERRICONE, SKINN ORCHID GEL. You can use your foundation makeup after that and it goes on very smoothly.

HTH
