Just to share a review from my favourite site.
Beauty Boff by The Times UK
I’ve gotten this long ago for a product review.
However, I’ve been using it on and off only so I can’t really gauge much from
my infrequent usage.
It can be found at Guardian Stores islandwide and is retailing for around SGD60-70+ I believe. Quite a pricey drugstore product I must say.
Hence, it would be good to read more on it if you’re contemplating the buy.
Though it seems poorly rated in the review below, I have to add on that I’ve read pretty good reviews about it elsewhere though.
Therefore, a search on google would be good if you wish to continue your research on the Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler.
They say “In one compound you get instant wrinkle-filling science plus a complex of three technologically advanced ingredients.”
We say Its three key ingredients are gatuline, extracted from the South American Acmella oleracea plant ; kombuchka, derived from black tea; and argirline, a peptide. Gatuline relaxes facial muscles, and hence reduces the appearance of wrinkles, says the manufacturer; yet there is no publicly available data to support this. Kombuchka may have antioxidant properties, which could help to prevent lines, says Dr Tamara Griffiths, a dermatologist for the British Skin Foundation, but its effect on skin has not been fully investigated. Good Skin Labs, the cream’s manufacturer, however, claims that it improved skin complexion in experiments. Argirline, Dr Griffiths suggests, may also relax facial muscles, but has done so only in the manufactuer’s test-tube studies. The cream reduced wrinkle length and depth in in-house studies, but the scientists didn’t use a control cream, so it’s hard to know whether this was caused by the action of the ingredients or simply by the skin being moisturised.
