If you have been searching the net for natural or organic anti-wrinkle creams, you must have chanced upon Arbonne Nutrimin C, a beauty product formulated to diminish eye wrinkles. Arbonne contains hyaluronic acid (which supposedly serves to improve the skin’s elasticity, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles), aloe (which soothes and relaxes the skin), witch hazel (which reduces the size of the pores so the skin looks smoother) and licorice (which lightens the skin). It boasts of no mineral oil or chemical fragrance content that clog and cause eye irritation, and claims to be hypoallergenic, too. All these factors should work towards the greater benefit of the consumer; unfortunately that isn’t always the case.
Apparently, Arbonne, while botanically based, has exfoliating properties which appear to be too harsh for sensitive skin. Yes, exfoliating should be made part and parcel of a regular skin care regimen as it serves to remove dead skin cells, so the skin looks and feels smoother and younger. But people with sensitive skin have to be very careful with this because exfoliating on a daily basis can irritate or even blemish the skin. Interestingly, even without this flaw, consumers are not clamoring for Arbonne Eye Wrinkle Cream. You are not very likely to see customers making a second purchase of Arbonne. Even the fact that it’s mostly organic does not make it more appealing. Arbonne appears not to have its botanical ingredients in higher concentrations or it simply lacks more ingredients that would have made it a hot-selling item. According to some experts, Arbonne should also contain collagen to increase its anti-aging value but I personally do not think that’s wise.
As you know, collagen is a protein that partly makes up the skin. Over a period of time the levels of collagen decrease, the reason why the skin sags and wrinkles. But simply applying collagen on the surface of the skin is futile exercise. This is not the way to naturally increase your collagen levels to the point that brings effective results. Collagen is too big to be absorbed by the cells of the skin, so collagen in anti-aging creams is useless.
So Arbonne is not the best choice out there when you are after reducing fine lines and wrinkles. What is? Well, I could try to come up with several names, but regardless of what brand they come in they are going to have the following essential features:
- Certified 100% organic. Don’t settle for anti-aging creams that are not 100% organic. Despite the claims of reducing wrinkles, chemically-formulated anti-wrinkle creams, in truth, worsen wrinkles or bring about the early development of wrinkles.
- Antioxidants. Antioxidants are among the most important ingredients an anti-wrinkle cream must have. Antioxidants give wrinkle creams the ability to protect the skin from sun damage and free radicals, both of which speed up aging. When shopping for anti-wrinkle creams, look in particular for the ingredient Green Tea extracts.
- Vitamins. Vitamins, especially Vitamins C and E, are essential to skin health. But make sure the vitamins are not synthetic, otherwise you are going to end up with a product that has no value at all.
The most effective eye wrinkle cream out there does not need to be expensive. Probably this is another area where Arbonne has become a huge turn-off to consumers. You see with Arbonne Nutrimin C, you will need not only the cream itself but also a line of Arbonne Nutrimin products that includes a facial scrub, a mask, a lift and wrinkle filler and an enzyme peel, all of which can cost you over $150.
