Ugh. The sad, sad truth of getting old… wrinkles. Thirty is coming real soon for me, we’re talking a mere matter of months. So my skincare regimen continues to get more advanced and wrinkle prevention is at the top of my priority list. Tula Skincare sent me both the Volume Defense Deep Wrinkle Serum and Advanced Neck Cream and I couldn’t wait to start using them. I had always heard great things about Tula, but never actually tried any of their products until now. And I have to say, these are really great products.
The Volume Defense Serum ($98 for 1 oz) is packed with vitamin C and retinol – ding ding! Retinol is key for any anti-aging products because retinoids actually minimize the appearance of wrinkles, boosts skin’s thickness and elasticity, slows the breakdown of collagen (which helps keep skin firm), and it can lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. The serum feels light on the skin but is surprisingly moisturizing, which is a must for my dry skin. I found this works great for morning or night, but I prefer to use at night under my daily moisturizer so my skin can absorb the retinoid properties without any makeup on. And while I haven’t seen my wrinkles disappear, I have noticed my smile lines to be a little less intense (in other words, my makeup doesn’t settle there as much anymore). So that’s a win!
The Advanced Neck Cream ($80 for 1.7 oz) is what I was most excited to try as this hasn’t been an area I’ve been paying any attention to. Shame, shame. The neck is often what shows signs of aging, similar to hands. So even if your face is wrinkle free, you’re not fooling anyone if your neck has aged. As I’ve gotten older, gained weight and experienced my fair share of sun damage, my neck has become a bit of a problem area. This cream helps firm the skin on the neck and décolletage while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I love incorporating this into my everyday skincare routine and use it morning and night! It’s no miracle worker, you can still see the lines on my neck. BUT it has definitely improved overall firmness around my neck and décolletage. I even put it on my chest!
I highly recommend trying out these products if you haven’t already. If anything, go with the Advanced Neck Cream. It’s a beauty regimen must! I also love their Exfoliating Treatment Mask!
