Test Counter: Kiehl's Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler

The promise

A breakthrough treatment, Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler promises instant and long-term results without the use of silicones. It is said to immediately diminish the look of wrinkles and minimize the number of lines in as little as four weeks, while improving the skin's elasticity.

How it works

Story continues below advertisement

It uses a gentle yet potent blend of two types of hyaluronic acid - sodium hyaluronate spheres to fill wrinkles and promote firmness and fragmented hyaluronic acid that penetrates the skin and minimizes lines - plus AD-1 peptide to stimulate elastin production and polymers to reduce the depth of wrinkles. Together, the ingredients deliver a dual-action formula that fills lines immediately and smoothes deep wrinkles over time. Plus, it's fragrance- and paraben-free.

How to use it

Tap a small amount day and night into the forehead lines, crow's feet, naso-labial folds and lip lines.

The bottom line

I am thrilled to report (gloat, really) that as I have yet to develop any deep wrinkles I could not act as a proper test subject for this product. So I asked a nice lady, who, despite having great skin for a gal in her golden years, could challenge the claims. (Don't worry, Ma, I won't tell them it was you.) The Test Subject applied the filler to the lines around her mouth and on her forehead and I immediately exclaimed, "Your wrinkles are virtually gone, Ma!" The Test Subject reported feeling tightness in the targeted areas and proceeded to thank me through slightly parted ventriloquist lips. And I said, "Don't be silly, Ma, you can move your mouth and nothing will happen." Which she did and her wrinkles remained considerably diminished. The Test Subject was very happy with the results and continues to use the product.

$57 at Kiehl's and Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.
