Hydroxatone's 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer should ideally be named “Instant Irritation” because that’s what your skin will experience from using this specialty product. Whatever “hardworking ingredients” this product contains, they aren’t indicated on the ingredient list. Instead of getting state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients, you’re getting a lot of sodium silicate, an alkaline film-forming agent that constricts your skin, causing it to feel (not actually become) tighter, and it can be irritating.
Instant Effect contains a tiny amount of antioxidants along with retinol, but these will be of little help against the irritation from the drying film-forming agent, and this product feels VERY drying on skin once it sets.
This also contains alcohol, which is about as far from anti-aging as skin care can get! There isn’t much alcohol present, but the potential for free-radical damage, which hurts your skin’s ability to heal and limits its ability to produce healthy collagen, is worth considering when you’re trying to fight wrinkles.
Although this can work to temporarily smooth wrinkles around the eyes or mouth, the long term effects of using a product like this stand a good chance of making matters worse.
Note: This product is also sold under the Hydroxyatone brand as Instant Effect 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer.
