Review Overview

Tri-Aktiline Plus Deep Wrinkle Filler + Firming Concentrate is a water- and silicone-based serum that contains some formidable anti-aging ingredients for all skin types, but it cannot lift skin, either instantly or over time. A face-lift in a tube isn't possible, but don't let that stop you from trying this product as a means of smoothing and temporarily filling in fine lines and deeper wrinkles.

The silky, fragrance-free formula provides a dose of antioxidants, sophisticated skin-identical ingredients, and cell-communicating ingredients, and it comes in packaging that will keep them stable. It has what it takes to promote and maintain healthier skin to the extent possible (meaning this won't replace Botox or dermal fillers but rather can help enhance their results). You’ll only be disappointed if you believe the wrinkle-eliminating claims though this formula can help strengthen skin against further wrinkling, and yes, that also means stimulating collagen for firmer skin! Those with realistic expectations should definitely consider this product; its texture is best for normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin.

Claims

To treat wrinkles PLUS the loss of firmness, the scientists at GoodSkin Labs created Tri-Aktiline™ PLUS. Its concentrated multi-pronged approach INSTANTLY diminishes the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles. PLUS, over time, skin is lifted and the length and depth of wrinkles are visible reduced.

Brand Overview

GoodSkin Labs At-A-Glance

Strengths: Most of the serums and treatment products (including the wrinkle fillers) are very good; relatively inexpensive given the anti-aging ingredients used; some of the products are fragrance-free.

Weaknesses: Falls short in terms of not offering any sun protection products; no longer a comprehensive line.

GoodSkin Labs is owned by Estee Lauder and sold exclusively at Kohl’s department stores. Although originally launched as a full-featured collection of skin-care products, the brand has since been whittled down to a few key players. We’re not sure why the downsizing occurred, but perhaps it’s Lauder simply decided to focus on the core products that sold best. Whatever the reason, what remains from GoodSkin is a mixed bag—but there are some very good products you may want to consider. Because this is Lauder-owned line, you’ll find several products are similar to others from Laude brands, including Clinique. The price point of GoodSkin Labs is in line with Clinique, though with Clinique you have a lot more choices and can, if desired, put together an entire skin-care routine. Just to be clear, you can put together a brilliant skin-care routine with products from different brands—let go of the myth that you won’t get good results if your routine mixes and matches various brands. In some cases that may work beautifully, but more often than not it can lead to trouble because few lines offer a perfectly ideal assortment of products. What GoodSkin Labs does best is serums and anti-aging treatment products (including wrinkle fillers) and most of them are fragrance-free. Their formulas combine proven beneficial ingredients in elegant textures and packaging that helps keep light- and air-sensitive ingredients stable during use. As with most cosmetic lines, the claims are a bit over the top, but for the most part the formulas contain an impressive range of ingredients that can help your skin look and act younger. You won’t find anything here that Estee Lauder’s namesake brand isn’t also offering, but if you routinely shop at Kohl’s, there are some products that are worthy of checking out!

Works great for me...

I used this product (deep wrinkle filler) for several years and find it really works for me. I dab it on the deeper wrinkles around my mouth and it does make their appearance fade a little bit. And the longer it's used the better my skin looks. I've had lapses where I've run out and don't purchase again til I get that 30% off coupon to use at Kohl's, so I can see the difference between use--and non use. Disturbed that I can't get it at Kohl's anymore.

Interesting novelty product

I purchased this product at Cosmetics Company Store [read at a discount] and probably wouldn't purchase at full price. I also have the 1st generation of L'Oreal's Miracle Blur which contained SPF 30 and is superior in performance IMO. This product is more moisturizing and performs better UNDER makeup whereas the L'Oreal product [like Mally's Face Defender] is best atop makeup. Still, I think there are better full-face primers out there and this is best for eye area. Expensive but worth a shot.
