Today were looking into their most popular range, the Wrinkle Warrior, to see exactly what’s behind this product. So without further adieu, let’s jump right in!
Behind the Brand
Kate Somerville has been at the forefront of luxury skincare for decades. The goal that is at the heart of this brand is bottling the same treatments that she’s seen work in her clinic for hundreds of clients. Since the brand is so well known in the skincare community, there is no shortage of stockists, including popular retailers like Sephora, Amazon and more.
Wrinkle Warrior Winners
Within the Wrinkle Warrior collection, there are three different products available. This include the Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Moisturizer and Serum, the Wrinkle Warrior Plumping Pink Mask and the Wrinkle Warrior Eye Dark Circle Eraser.
Wrinkle Warrior Moisturizer
This is the original Wrinkle Warrior product, and is definitely the most popular of the three that are available. The Wrinkle Warrior Moisturizer acts as a two in one product that moisturizers while also treating the skin similarly to a serum type product.
Wrinkle Warrior Mask
The Wrinkle Warrior Mask is a hydrating gel masks that works to plump the skin. It contains some of the key ingredients that are found in the original moisturizer formula, in addition to ingredients like apple fruit extract and red algae extract to boost the hydrating properties of this mask even further.
Wrinkle Warrior Eye Cream
The last of the line-up is the Wrinkle Warrior Eye Cream. This is a light, gel-like eye cream that, along with yeast and plankton extracts, works to visibly reduce puffiness as well as the appearance of fine lines. This eye cream aims to work both immediately, as well as over time to improve the appearance of your overall eye area.
All About Hyaluronic Acid
This line from Kate Somerville is all about the hydrating capabilities of Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid falls into a category of skincare ingredients called humectants. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient that is found in our own bodies, and serves to absorb and retain moisture in the skin. In the rest of the body however, hyaluronic acid serves main different functions, including joint support, and soft tissue function. The human body holds 15 grams of hyaluronic acid, and actively uses about a third of that amount each day
Because this compound is found naturally in our own bodies, it can be exceptionally effective in skincare. There is an extremely low chance that it will cause sensitivity, plus it converts easily to something that our skin already knows what to do with. But not all Hyaluronic acid formulations are created equal.
In order to have a hyaluronic acid formula that is most effective, you’ll want to look out for products that offers different weights of hyaluronic acid. The Wrinkle Warrior collection offers three different weights of hyaluronic acid, so that it can effect several layers of your skin and give you well rounded hydration. Plus, with some of the more oil-based occlusive ingredients, this formula will help you achieve long lasting, all day hydration.
Since this brand is so well known in the skincare community, there is no shortage of positive reviews to go off of. Most reviewers saw an increase in plumpness, as well as a noticeable improvement in hydration. Overall, all of the products in the range have above a 4 out of 5 star rating on Sephora’s website.
