Review: Tilth Anti-Aging Firming Cream
Tilth Beauty is a new line of skincare products focusing on anti-aging. While there are countless companies in this lucrative market, the company is dedicated to being environmentally friendly, using solely wind-power to generate all packaging. The brand name is derived from the term used for soil that properly retains moisture and oxygen; this parallel between a healthy earth and health skin runs throughout the company's philosophy. The line contains no sulfates, parabens, petroleum-based ingredients, synthetic fragrances or GMOs.
So with all that said, does the anti-aging firming cream? The consumer tends to think an emphasis on non-beauty areas like environmental responsibility and natural mean a product's effectiveness is compromised. The cream is a thick and emollient texture with no scent. It penetrates into skin quickly without any greasy residue. Skin looks firmer instantly from the hydration, but the company assures the ingredients have long-term benefits. Since I've been trying the product for about a month, I can't attest to this. I had no adverse reaction to the product:, including breakouts or irritation. The ingredients contain pistachio seed oil and almond oil (which are touted for essential fatty acid properties), so if you have any nut allergies, inquire about this ingredient.
The ingredients combine properties focused on firming and free radical scavengers. The main firming ingredient is Renovage, a trademarked ingredient that is said to protect the telomeres in the skin: In summary, this protection is said to support cell regeneration and thereby support the firmness of the skin.
The anti-aging cream can be used for day or night (it contains no SPF, however). It works well under makeup and keeps skin feeling moisturized all day.
The product retails for $55 for 1.7 fluid ounce and can be purchased at www.tilthbeauty.com
Per the updated FTC guidelines, I received the sample products with compliments from BeautyStat.com, but my review is my own objective opinion. Neither BeautyStat or Tilth Beauty made any attempt to influence my opinion/review.
