Review Overview

Good Skin’s Total Face Instant Line Reducing Moisturizer is almost identical to their Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler, also reviewed on Beautypedia. The latter works great to (temporarily) fill in superficial lines and large pores while supplying skin with a beautiful range of helpful ingredients. This newer version has the same spackle-like texture as its predecessor, but a slightly thicker, creamier texture. That’s the only change of note, plus you get a greater amount of product for just a bit more money. Otherwise, which you choose is all about preference, not performance.

This water- and silicone-based serum doesn’t come close to achieving its short-term, wrinkle-relieving goals, though by no means is it a throwaway product. Although it won’t send wrinkles and expression lines packing, it does provide 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 and does so without adding fragrance, which is always a plus. You’ll only be disappointed if you believe the wrinkle-eliminating claims to be anything other than fleeting. Those with realistic expectations should definitely consider this product, though its texture is best for normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin.

Claims

Wrinkle fighting plus high-performance hydration - a powerful combination! The revolutionary wrinkle-fighting action of TRI-AKTILINE Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler in a state-of-the-art, multi-action moisture formula specifically designed for use on the entire face.

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!
