Skin Care Review: Avon ANEW Clinical Deep Crease Concentrate

by Anonymous Singapore

No effect

It does conceal fine lines, if only for a while.

The effects are purely cosmetic and certainly do not last.

Avon's much hyped ANEW Clinical Deep Crease Concentrate contains Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide-3) as one of its ingredients, but the amount used is unknown. I suspect that it could be less than the recommended 10% required for this compound to be effective, as any effects this concentrate provides are short term ones (an hour or two maybe).

It also contains some sort of very fine and reflective mica particles, which seem to explain the short term concealing effect. Because these particles reflects light and is of a color similar to skin tone, it can conceal the lines when it has just been applied over fine lines. But sweat and other environment factors will cause these particles to "wash" off after a while.

Although its consistency is thick, it "thins" itself very considerably into a water-like texture upon application to the skin. The good news is that it does not seem to clog pores as I have very oily skin, and live in a hot and humid climate, but does not have any breakouts as a result of using this.

It also has a fresh scent, which is not overpowering at all and smells really great.

The bottle which housed it looks elegant (in line with the clean design of the ANEW Clinical range), but features a "bent" dropper design applicator which design does not make sense at all. A normal dropper would have worked much better.

The effects are purely cosmetic. I am glad that I got it from an auction and did not pay the recommended price of $32 US.
