I am a disciple of Deciem’s The Ordinary. I love the efficacy, the price point, the gorgeous frosty packaging. And I’ve sung the praises of this brand before. I was reminded of the awesomeness when I came across an article in Byrdie that mentioned one of their products, The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%.
It claimed that there was a magical ingredient that plumps you up! I don’t do Botox and fillers – but I’m down to try potions that market themselves as giving you the same effect.
WHAT IS ARGIRELINE?
ARGIRELINE is a chain of amino acids used in skincare formulas that prevents the muscle movement that leads to wrinkles.
Argireline, a synthetic peptide, which is patterned from the N-terminal end of the protein SNAP-25, can both reduce the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrate effectively against their development. In our past studies, we found out that Argireline had a significant anti-wrinkle effect in Chinese subjects and that it was safe and well-tolerated. – NIH
Argireline also promotes collagen production — which is always a win! Who doesn’t want plump and dewy skin!?
And as it turns out, I am now a convert! I have been using The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10% for a few weeks now and have found great results. I squirt some onto the palm of my left hand. Then I take my right finger to dab it in my eye area, frown lines and upper lip area. Then I dab a fair amount on my forehead and wipe the extra onto the back of my hands — Voila!
I’m not sure I can go without this now!
Another one of their magical cult faves is The Ordinary Buffet – which, yes, is a Vegas buffet of goodness that acts as a multi-tasking powerhouse. Why? It’s packed with hyaluronic acid and wrinkle-fighting amino acids — and it contains a specifically designed peptide, Matrixyl 3000, which stimulates collagen production and repairs skin.
Apply it to clean skin in the morning and night.
And then there is The Ordinary’s Matrixyl and HA cocktail! It’s a super fab peptide formulation created to target fine lines and wrinkles.
And for those who want to know the scientific detes, Matrixyl is a highly-effective peptide composition that contains two generations of matrixyl (matrixyl 3000 and matrixyl synthe’6) at a combined concentration of 10 percent by weight in a specialized hyaluronic acid delivery system.
Who needs more HA Instacarted to our faces? Me, that’s who!
++ And there you go!
