Product Review: Ten Anti-Aging Complete Rejuvanating Care

ten anti aging complete rejuvanating care 01

Name: Anti-aging Complete Rejuvanating Care
Brand: Ten
Size:50ml
Price:£34.50

From the packaging:
A complete anti-aging formulation with potent and high quality active ingredients. The key active ingredients are all natural and work together to restore skin elasticity and moisture content.

What I liked:
– lightweight texture, sinks in quickly
– hydrates skin, leaving it soft and smooth
– temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
– doesn’t cause breakouts

What I didn’t like:
– the formula may be too basic for some people
– there aren’t many natural ingredients here (not a con for me, but because the company claims the opposite, I thought I’d mention it here)

There are some anti-aging creams that contain antioxidants, retinoids, and alpha hydroxy acids that can prevent and reduce the signs of aging, such as dark spots and fine lines. And then there are others that are more basic, and work by hydrating skin, so that it looks smoother and suppler, and by temporarily filling in wrinkles with silicones. Ten Anti-Aging Complete Rejuvanating Care falls in the latter category.

Although the brand claims its anti-aging benefits are due to rice bran and jojoba oils, their concentrations are simply too small to do much. Instead, the active ingredients are Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Glycerin, and Dimethicone.

Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate is a water-repellent emollient that gets rid of dry patches and makes skin soft and smooth. Glycerin is a humectant that draws water from the environment into the skin. This keeps skin hydrated. And hydrated skin looks plumper and suppler.

Dimethicone is a silicone that creates a barrier on the skin that slows down water loss but doesn’t suffocate it. That’s due to its particular molecular structure, consisting in large molecules with large spaces between them. Dimethicone can also fill in fine lines and wrinkles so that they look smaller.

Once applied, Ten Anti-Aging Complete Rejuvanating Care makes my skin super soft to the touch. The fine lines around my eyes also appear smaller. But, because these effects are only temporary and disappear when the cream is removed, I use it together with Skin Actives Antioxidant Serum with ROS* Terminator (review coming soon), which is rich in antioxidants.

That way, while the Skin Active serum prevents further damage, the Ten cream makes the existing one less obvious. Its lightweight texture, which slightly resembles that of a gel, spreads easily on the skin and sinks in quickly, leaving no greasy residue behind.

It doesn’t irritate skin nor causes breakouts, works well as a base for makeup, and has a lovely flower scent that reminds me of spring. Although I wish it contained more antioxidants, if you’re looking for a basic moisturizer that can make your wrinkles look a bit smaller during the day, you may enjoy Ten Anti-Aging Complete Rejuvanating Care.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Steareth-2, Cera Alba, Steareth-21, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Disodium EDTA, Orza Sativa Bran Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate.

Summary
Ten Anti-Aging Complete Rejuvanating Care has a lightweight texture that sinks quickly into the skin, leaving it soft, plumper, and hydrated. But its anti-aging properties are only temporary.

I love lightweight formulas, too bad the effect is not longer lasting!

Hi there Gio – have you tried the other products in the range? My favourite is the Instant Lifting Cream which gives my skin a real end of day boost before going out. Let me know if you’d like to try some and we’ll get some to you.

Sarah, thank you for your offer. I’m testing the Lifting cream now, and have also tried the eye cream and exfoliant. They are quite nice.
