Kiehl's must have taken a leaf out of Lady Liberty's notebook because their latest wrinkle-reducing innovation is all about copper. Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream utilizes copper to stimulate elastin production. Historically, skincare to treat fine lines and wrinkles has focused on collagen production; elastin, another integral component of skin, has largely been overlooked. As its name suggests, elastin plays an important role in maintaining the elasticity of skin. Decreased elastin, and thereby decreased recoil, can lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. According to Kiehl's, copper has the ability to stimulate elastin production, thereby promoting a more youthful complexion. In addition to copper PCA, Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream also contains calcium PCA, a humectant, and moisturizing Apricot Kernel Oil.
As you can see, the copper theme of Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream extends to the translucent tinted tub and metallic cap. Though the lid and jar have the convincing appearance of metal and glass, respectively, both parts are actually made from practical, durable plastic. I really like the texture of Kiehl's creams and that of Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream is no exception. The cream is thick with a bit of slip; only a small amount is required for application. It moisturizes and protects well without being heavy or oily. The ingredients seem to sit well with my sensitive skin, which makes me happy.
Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream ($52 for 50mL) is now available in stores or www.Kiehls.com, along with a companion eye cream and SPF containing cream. The packaging and texture of the cream are both wonderful (as one would expect of Kiehl's quality). I don't have visible wrinkles or fine lines (yet), so I can't attest to improvement. However, elastin starts to decrease in your 20's so I plan on putting Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream to good use! Thanks for reading! Have you tried any of the products from Kiehl's Wrinkle Reducing line? What are your current Kiehl's favorites?
