There are literally hundreds of exhibits at the International Beauty Show, so when I saw that one small booth was always three deep with visitors, I had to check it out. I managed to wiggle my way to the front ( I know, I’m a New Yorker) to see a table selling just one item– a small pink bottle called Instantly Ageless. The posters and brochures showed impressive before and after photos. Application of a few drops on the face promised instantly ( albeit temporarily) to erase crows feet and laugh lines.
A quick scan of the ingredients showed that Instantly Ageless contained Hexapeptide, aka ‘fauxtox” a protein that may produce Botox like effects in a product spread on rather than injected into the skin. Instantly Ageless also contains silicates which can form a film much in the way an egg white mask tightens the skin.
Directions were super simple. Apply a moisturzer to the skin and let it dry throughly. Then pat ( not rub) a half drop of of Instantly Ageless to targeted areas. Allow it to dry and stay still and expressionless for 1-2 minutes. Then top with an oil-free foundation. So far, so good. The serum-like fluid tingled a bit as I applied it to my skin and I could feel my skin tightening– not uncomfortable, but definately tighter.
Did Instantly Ageless Work?
So did it deliver as promised? The photo on top left is my before pix that highlights a nice deep crows foot at the corner of my eye. The photo on the right was treated to a drop of Instantly Ageless. Even in this less than perfect shot, you can see that the little line is shorter and less pronounced. I also felt that it made my eyes look a bit fresher and the dark circles less apparent. I think that, IRL, the improvements were more apparent. The changes last for just a few hours and is an affordable option when you want to crank it up for a event– eg high school reunion, blind date or job interview.
Instantly Ageless did not give me the same dramatic results that I saw in the brochure, but I definately saw a difference. It also did not give me the same degree of improvement as Botox, but at $40 a bottle, it is a safe, affordable and effective addition to my beauty tool kit.
