Hate Botox??? Try these instead …

Growing older and wiser? you bet,,, though we’d rather drop that “older” part and settle with “wiser” instead… we wish. I am sure all of you out there can relate, but there is no mirror, no matter how minuscule, that we have not checked. We try to be open to everything that can turn back the clock but some of us just can’t fathom the idea of Botox. So, if the thought of a needle coming anywhere near your face is enough to make you queasy, we have researched high and low to bring you all the other alternatives out there…

1 || La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo

A night and day fighter of wrinkles and the effects of gravity featuring skin-restructuring activator peptides and a calendula flower active.

2 || Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Fast Acting Serum

Synthetic snail venom along with matrixyl, and actual diamond dust work together to relax wrinkles and blur dark spots.

3 || L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask

This is a drugstore favourite that promises overnight firmer skin due to the combination of Pro-Xylane, hyaluronic acid and centella asiatica.

4 || StriVectin Extreme Creme

Hyaluronic acid and vitamin E work together with StriVectin’s patented NIA-114 technology to help fight the first signs of aging and provide that youthful glow.

5 || Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Intensive Revitalising Face Mask

The retinol in this face mask will restore the skin’s texture and tone.

6 || SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

In addition to hyaluronic acid this serum has GABA in it. Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) induces a tightening and freezing effect similar to Botox.

7 || Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel

This peel will allow newer skin to resurface and will help boost collagen production.

8 || RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Duet

This one is for the seriously phobic ladies out there because with the price tag on this one you might as well do Botox. This formula is based on RES Technology featuring Line Relaxing Complex.

9 || Estee Lauder New Dimension Liquid Tape Treatment

This product provides an instant lifting action combined with pro-collagen technology.

10 || Filorga Time-Filler Mat

This anti-aging wrinkle cream has a botox-like peptide that helps relax the skin.
