Though it can be a hit or miss, I love unique products that I don’t normally see on drugstore shelves. Since noticing my skin’s not the way it used to be, the words anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, lifting, and firming always catches my eye. I found the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer (Collagen & Elastin) along with the LANOLINÉ Argan Oil Night Recovery Créme (read my review here) at Winners or Marshall’s. Those two shops always have such unique beauty products.
Upon opening the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer, I noticed the texture of the moisturizer was very thick. It wasn’t an oil-based, heavy-feeling cream like the LANOLINÉ Argan Oil Night Recovery Créme for example, but it was thick.
After applying the moisturizer to my face, there were a few things that I noticed.
While I didn’t like the thickness of the moisturizer, I liked how it applied on my face. It did take a little more work than a lighter moisturizer in terms of having to spread it around, but once applied, it felt good. I didn’t feel as though there was thick layer of protectant on my face.
I must also add, the picture of the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer off the Amazon site shows a different color/texture than the actual product. The picture on Amazon shows a white, seemingly oil-based cream looking texture, which is actually inaccurate unless I got a dud. However, if you scroll down to a customer’s picture in the reviews, it looks very similar to mine as well. So keep that in mind. It’s not a bad thing, but just a bad representation, that’s all.
What I absolutely love, though, is the smell of the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer. It smells really nice, kind of a like a vanilla scent. This is the nicest smellest moisturizer/face lotion/cream I’ve ever used.
As you already know, this product is geared towards mature skin. Skin that needs some lifting, firming, toning, elasticity, you name it.

Does it Lift & Firm?
Does the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer do what it claims? I’m not really too sure. But because the product is thicker than a light moisturizer, it does feel like it tightens my face better, whereas a light moisturizer kind of just sucks into my skin and disappears.
Like most other anti-aging products, I don’t think it’s a magical, end-all-wrinkles product. And again, as with most anti-aging products, the Skinlab Lift & Firm Daily Moisturizer is a great cream for temporarily reducing the look of aging skin.
I definitely think it works better than facial products that don’t “lift and firm” or help with anti-aging. It works better than my regular Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer in terms of acting as an anti-aging cream (though I still love and will always have my Neutrogena for those days I want to feel like I literally have nothing on my face, even if my skin looks more aged).
