Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex

Hydroxatone AM/PM Wrinkle Cream

By employing the most advanced beauty research technology, Hydroxatone products conclusively deliver rapid, safe and long-term visible results. AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex SPF 15 is a unique moisturizer specifically designed to increase skin hydration and soften the appearance of visible wrinkles by helping the skin stimulate the production of collagen. Increased collagen produces a long-term reduction in visible wrinkles, crow's feet, and facial lines. Your multi-functional anti-aging powerhouse and moisturizer in one! Hydroxatone is formulated for all skin types, both women and men, and all ethnicities. Hydroxatone is not tested on animals and is paraben free.

The color and texture of this reminds me of whipped butter like if you were making butter cream frosting. There is no discernible scent which is nice. I've read some reviews that said this was super hydrating. I may have mentioned once or twice that I live in the desert. Las Vegas has had a HOT summer. We didn't break the record but we tied the record for hottest day ever recorded. So when I first started using this I didn't think it was that hydrating and I had to use more than I thought I would need. Now that we're into monsoon season and it's more humid, I found it more hydrating. This does have an SPF of 15 but I use a separate sunscreen on my face anyway. 

I'm in my mid-30s and do have some fine lines in my forehead and under my eyes. I used this day and night. I have seen an improvement in my wrinkles since I started using this. I also changed my diet and increased my already high water intake. So I'm not sure that can be 100% attributed to Hydroxatone.

I'm not a fan of the packaging. I would definitely prefer a pump bottle or a tube. This was difficult to maneuver when I was testing the Brodaway Nails imPress Manicure. My forehead also broke out slightly when I started to use this but cleared up fairly quickly. The retail price on this is $69 at Ulta. I liked it but I didn't like it that much.

Pros: Hydrating, diminishes wrinkles.  
Cons: Packaging & Price
Bat's Rating: 7.5 Cost plays a major factor.
