Firming Face Creams

Fantastic Firming Creams, Part II: Face

Yesterday I told you a little bit about some firming bust creams, and today we're moving up on the body by focusing on creams to firm your face. Firming facial creams can help to minimize the appearance of your pores, and some can topically and temporarily suspend muscle contractions in your face — similar to what Botox does, but without the side effects.

Tracie Martyn Firming Serum ($185) is a favorite among celebrities, so I was really excited when I received a sample to test. I used it only a few times, but I found it to be calming, moisturizing, and brightening.

Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream ($77) is more for women in their 40s and up. The medium-weight cream has a very clean smell, and it claims to firm, tone and reduce those stubborn fine lines on your face. I found it to be soothing and it left my skin looking plump and smooth, but I didn't feel any particular sensation when I applied it, so it's hard for me to judge if it really worked.

For one more drugstore brand,

I have yet to try this Neutrogena Visibly Firm Face Lotion ($18), but I've read a lot of positive reviews on it and plan to check it out. It is a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic face cream that contains SPF 20 and active copper to restore firmness and elasticity to the skin. Supposedly you will see the firming results after just one week of use.

Chemicals in skincare products will cause your skin to sag in the long run. That because those chemicals don’t belong there and impact your skins elasticity. I would definitely recommend the Face firming serum, from Made from Earth. I stopped using it after 6 months because it naturally improved my owns skins ability to tighten and heal itself. . . I went through a bottle a month for 6 months and that’s it…. I saw a major difference. . .I highly recommend it to anyone who is tired of trying all the different face creams. . .the website is madefromearth.com and its called the Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum. . .

Thank you for the reviews, but the Visibly Firm could have been left out as it wasn't tested and doesn't really qualify as a review. It's marketing.

I love Clarins products. I'd try that one.

I'd give the Neutrogena a shot - even if it doesn't firm, at least it has SPF for your skin.

I have tried the Clarins cream. I am a big fan of Clarins firming products. Especially their firming neck cream. It is amazing.
