Can Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate Really Fight Wrinkles?

How can you tell if a skincare product can really fight wrinkles?

It’s all in the details.

Case in point: Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate. The marketing copy states that it gives an “instant plumping up and an immediate visible smoothing effect.”

Visible smoothing effect. Not wrinkle reduction. There’s a difference. Visible smoothing effect simply means the serum (or whatever it is) somehow flattens the appearance of wrinkles. But once the effect is gone, your wrinkles are there, just as deep as before.

That’s not as bad as it sounds. The real antiaging superstars take their sweet time to work. In the meantime, you want something that masks those wrinkles.

How well does this fare?

Ingredient Analysis

Sodium Hyaluronate

Sodium hyaluronate is a form of hyaluronic acid. Its too big to penetrate your skin so it just sits comfortably on its surface.

Does that mean it is useless? Nope. Sodium hyaluronate is a fantastic moisture magnet: it draws water from the environment into the skin. It’s so effective because it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and works well in both high and low humidity conditions.

Translation: no matter where you live, sodium hyaluronate gives your skin a waterfall of moisture. It’s this moisture that plumps up skin so that fine lines and wrinkles look smaller. But its effects are only temporary.

Glycerin

Sodium hyaluronate isn’t the only moisture magnet here. Glycerin has joined the party, too.

Glycerin works just the same: it attracts water from the environment into the skin, increases its hydration, reduces water loss and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.

It’s less powerful than sodium hyaluronate but, together, they give your skin a powerful plumping boost that makes your wrinkles look smaller for a while (and your skin feel super hydrated).

What Else Is Here?

Not much, to be honest. The problem with drugstore skincare is that each product usually has only one or two hero ingredients. Those absolutely needed to make the product work.

In this case, the serum is filled with humectants to plump up your skin and give it all the moisture it needs to make wrinkles look smaller. This approach works for all skin types. It gives dry skin the excess burst of moisture it so desperately needs to stay soft and hydrated and hydrates oily skin without adding more oil to your skin.

But I would have liked to see some antioxidants added to the mix. That wouldn’t reduce wrinkles but at least it would have prevented a few new ones from forming.

The Bottom Line

If you want to prevent wrinkles or get rid of them forever, this isn’t for you. But if you’re happy with simply reducing their appearance, this’ll do it without breaking the bank.

Surprise, yes, I think you can use it safely but don’t expect more than soft, moisturized skin. It can’t get rid of wrinkles or sun spots.

Shyamasree, have you tried salicylic acid (it’s also called BHA). Both The Ordinary and Paula’s Choice have serums and exfoliants with it that can help.

Hmm.. I was just about to buy this- for hydration. But ideally want something antiageing too! So what has the best of both worlds? Or can I just add an antioxidant serum to the mix?

Laura, yes you can layer it over an antioxidant serum.
