If the last year has taught me anything, it is to hold on to the things that bring me pleasure in this world. Chocolate and salty food make up a not insignificant part of that category and ask for the same shade of deep red lipstick repeatedly. While I can generally handle the consequences of those hobbies, a Glytone anti-ageing face cream erases the lines, wrinkles, and dull skin that comes from inhaling popcorn.
“As soon as the cream is applied, I feel the skin tighten,” writes a buyer about the difference Glytone Renewing Night Cream makes on their ageing skin. “It makes my skin look smooth, clear and very healthy.” At 73, another person says that Renewing Cream reduces wrinkles and leaves their face so smooth they’ve been using it for years.
Scattered through countless reviews of Glytone’s latest success are stories of dermatologists directing shoppers to the product, which is typical of the brand loved by doctors. “I saw the difference immediately: smoother, fresher skin,” writes a 72-year-old fan. “I’ve been using it for over five years. It works wonders for me.”
Like the Rejuvenating Mini Peel Gel brand, the CreamCream relies on glycolic acid to exfoliate and reverse fine lines. Avène retinol products inspire it with the inclusion of retinaldehyde, which is the most potent OTC retinoid. According to Glytone, the combination of glycolic acid and retinaldehyde helps improve firmness and elasticity while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and, judging by the rave reviews, that’s right on the money.
“Smoother and smoother skin at night,” decrees one person, a 63-year-old who considers it the perfect antidote for his dry skin. So how do you come up with Cream with retinol, which is known to dry out the skin? Just look at the squalane in the formula, the super moisturizer at the heart of Reese Witherspoon’s favourite brand.
“Studies have found that squalane is easily absorbed into the skin and can improve the natural suppleness and flexibility of the skin without leaving a greasy residue,” board-certified dermatologist Dr Anna Guanche previously told InStyle.
So squalane not only provides a built-in check for any irritations that retinol may bring but adds its anti-ageing capabilities to the mix. Bottom line: If you want to satisfy every whim of your lifestyle, the ingredients in Glytone Night Renewal Cream hide the evidence.
