Product Review: Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Wrinkle Filling Treatment Night

Name: Hyaluron-Filler Wrinkle Filling Treatment Night
Brand: Eucerin
Size: 50ml
Price: €42,50

From Eucerin’s website:
The night cream re-fills even deepest wrinkles from inside out.

What I liked:
– moisturizing, makes skin soft, smooth and plumper
– temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

What I didn’t like:
– made me break out
– the scent
– the price

While I think subscription services such as GlossyBox are a great way for beauty addicts to try lots of beauty products at an affordable price, sometimes you end up with a product you just know it’s not gonna work for you. When I received Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Wrinkle Filling Treatment Night, which the brand claims to be non-comedogenic, I only had to take one look at the ingredient list to know it would make me break out. You see, the cream contains a high concentration of Isopropyl Palmitate, and emollient and thickening agent that is highly comdogenic and that always makes me break out.

Of course that doesn’t mean it would necessarily cause everyone to break out as that depends on your skin type also, but if you have combination, oily or acne-prone skin I would suggest you avoid this treatment, just in case. I, instead, have decided to give it a try anyway so that I could write an in-depth review for you, my dear readers. See how much I love you? And yes, this night cream has made me break out really badly. :( But let’s see if it keeps its other promises, shall we?

The cream has a very rich and thick texture that spreads easily. It has an unpleasant scent, but I can’t pinpoint exactly what it smells like. But at least it’s not too strong and fades quickly. After a few days, my skin was very soft and appeared slightly plumper, which in turn made my fine lines appear somewhat reduced. This is thanks to Hyaluronic Acid , a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and has the function to keep elastin and collagen together, but just like them depletes with age and this contributes to the formation of wrinkles.

However, applying Hyaluronic Acid topically cannot erase wrinkles. To do that, it would need to penetrate into the skin, but its molecules are too big to get past the stratum corneum and into the epidermis. Instead, in skincare products it works like a humectant: it draws water from the environment into the skin, keeping it hydrated and plumping it up so that fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. Of course the effects are only temporary and if you stop using the cream, they’ll disappear.

Would I recommend it? Well, while I think that Hyaluronic Acid is a beneficial ingredient that anyone should use, in particular those with dry skin, I prefer to use a night cream chock full of antioxidants, which can prevent wrinkles, and retinoids, which can reduce them, rather than a product that can only make them appear temporarily less noticeable, especially considering the steep price. Nonetheless, it is a good moisturizing treatment for those with dry skin.

Summary

      Xin, yep, it’s the second item from Glossybox that’s broken me out. :( I’m very picky when it comes to skincare products so I’m not too thrilled when they send them too often, as they’ve been doing lately lol. On their FB page, they keep promising they would be sending more makeup products but they haven’t kept their word so far. Oh well, I can only hope the creams I still have to try won’t break me out.

      Makeup Morsels, aww thank you! I love you too. :)

      It’s a very interesting product for those with dry skin who are looking for a moisturizing treatement that will makeup their wrinkles look smaller too. I just wish they didn’t claim it was suitable for all skin types when it contains comedogenic ingredients..

      Chriselle, I think Eucerin makes some nice products but I’ve found that most of them contain Isopropyl Palmitate and other ingredients in the same “family” that are comedogenic and can cause breakouts especially in people with combination, oily or acne-prone skin. :(

      Amanda, unfortunately, I do. :( They are starting to appearing, but only around my eyes so far.

      Annabella, yes, this is just a basic, decent moisturizer really. I like it because it contains hyaluronic acid which is one of the best (if not the best) humectant available atm. But it can only fill in wrinkles, not erase them. Retinoids can help reduce them, but you’d need fillers, botox or other similar treatments to get rid of them. I agree that then, your neck and hands will reveal your true age anyway lol.
