Eucerin hyaluron filler reviews

The development of injectable facial fillers has come a long way since chemical agents, paraffin and Vaseline were first used. An effective and immediate solution to ageing woes like wrinkles and loose skin, fillers are commonly made with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient responsible for plump and hydrated skin. However, not everyone is keen on the invasive nature of the procedure and possible downtime involved. Here we discover Eucerin’s Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity skincare range, which promises to firm up five targeted facial areas without the need for injections.

This skincare line from Eucerin targets five key areas

How it works

Boasting over 100 years of history, German-led brand Eucerin is known for its dermatological skincare that’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. Formulated with high and low molecular hyaluronic acid to plump up deep wrinkles while improving elasticity, the range consists of three non-comedogenic products: a day cream ($85), night cream ($85) and facial oil ($99.90). Arctiin, an active ingredient proven to accelerate collagen renewal in skin cells, works alongside Silymarin, a powerful antioxidant that protects collagen and elastin from degrading and improves skin circulation at a cellular level.

Formulated for dry and mature skin (40 years old and above), this range of products promise to strengthen the skin structure, giving the overall complexion a more radiant and healthy look. According to a study, after four weeks of regular use, customers have seen an increase of over 100 percent in their skin elasticity and firmness. With eight weeks of continuous usage, the skin has also appeared firmer in five target areas: the forehead, eyes, cheekbone, jawline and neckline. Overall, lines and wrinkles have reduced, while skin moisture, elasticity and firmness have significantly improved.

The day cream works as an everyday moisturiser

“As I develop more wrinkles with age, particularly crow’s feet, I’m always on the hunt for anti-ageing creams, as well as daytime sunscreens that aren’t too heavy. For me, it’s a lot to layer SPF and makeup in this climate, so adding on an extra anti-aging layer is way too much. Hence, when I found out that Eucerin’s Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity Day Cream works as a sunscreen (SPF 15), daily moisturiser and anti-ageing cream, I was keen to give it a go. Another selling point for me was the fact that the cream doesn’t contain the widely used preservative methylisothiazolinone, which I’m very allergic to.

The night cream strengthens the skin structure by regenerating and intensively nourishing the skin overnight

The day cream seems thick in the jar, but once you put it on, it’s super lightweight and absorbs very easily into my dry to normal skin. It doesn’t have a greasy feel at all, allowing for my makeup to go nicely; in fact, it seems that my foundation goes on even better when applied over the day cream, particularly where my crow’s feet are. Once I knew I liked the day cream, I decided to give the Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity Night Cream and Elasticity + Filler Facial Oil a go. Both have the same subtle scent and great texture; the night cream is the perfect thickness for bedtime application while the facial oil is super thin with a lovely satin finish. I applied the oil before the day and night creams, and loved the way it absorbed into my skin without getting oily.

While I don’t actually look younger after using the anti-ageing range (it’s not a miracle worker!), I definitely think that my wrinkles didn’t get any deeper, which is great. The products also didn’t make me break out, which would have obviously been a deal breaker. I feel that the SPF in the day cream really provided protection against the sun – no new sunspots here! – while all three products gave my face a smoother and firmer texture overall.” – Amy Greenburg

Formulated with argan oil, lady’s thistle oil and Vitamin E

“I’m lucky in that I’ve never suffered from pimples, even as an adolescent, but as the years march on I’m seeing more and more lines around my eyes and forehead. Our hot and humid climate also makes my face feel dirty pretty much all of the time, which is why I like investing in face creams that not only deliver what they promise, but that also force me to make the effort and follow a skincare routine.

Eucerin’s new anti-aging range consists of three core products, a facial oil ($99.90), a night cream and a day cream ($85 each). The Hyaluron-Filler and Elasticity range promises to strengthen the skin’s structure by improving skin elasticity and plumping up deep wrinkles. Although the day and night cream look very similar in their packaging, the night cream is dark on the outside, while day cream light, making it easier to pick out when you’re fumbling for the right one in the bathroom. To me, there’s no particular scent to the creams, but the oil has a slightly floral, pleasant aroma. I’ve been using the facial oil before the night and day creams, and my skin has started to feel markedly softer and smoother. The creams absorb really quickly, and there’s no greasy feel to my face, even when I’ve used the oil. Focusing on washing my face properly, then applying the creams has also helped my face feel fresher and more cleansed.” – Amy Brook-Partridge

Can Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate Really Fight Wrinkles?

How can you tell if a skincare product can really fight wrinkles?

It’s all in the details.

Case in point: Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate. The marketing copy states that it gives an “instant plumping up and an immediate visible smoothing effect.”

Visible smoothing effect. Not wrinkle reduction. There’s a difference.

Visible smoothing effect simply means the serum (or whatever it is) somehow flattens the appearance of wrinkles. But once the effect is gone, your wrinkles are there, just as deep as before.

That’s not as bad as it sounds. The real antiaging superstars take their sweet time to work. In the meantime, you want something that masks those wrinkles.

How well does Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate fare?

What’s In Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate?

SODIUM HYALURONATE

Sodium hyaluronate is a form of hyaluronic acid. It’s too big to penetrate your skin so it just sits comfortably on its surface.

Does that mean it’s useless? Nope. Sodium hyaluronate is a fantastic moisture magnet: it draws water from the environment into the skin. It’s so effective because it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Plus, it works well in both high and low humidity conditions.

Translation: no matter where you live, sodium hyaluronate gives your skin a waterfall of moisture. It’s this moisture that plumps up skin so that fine lines and wrinkles look smaller. But its effects are only temporary.

GLYCERIN

Sodium hyaluronate isn’t the only moisture magnet here. Glycerin has joined the party, too.

Glycerin works just the same: it attracts water from the environment into the skin, increases its hydration, reduces water loss and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.

It’s less powerful than sodium hyaluronate but, together, they give your skin a powerful plumping boost that makes your wrinkles look smaller for a while (and your skin feel super hydrated).

Texture

Creamy and liquid, it doesn’t feel stick or greasy.

Fragrance

Light and subtle.

How To Use It

Shake the vial before opening. Then, apply a small amount on your skin after your antioxidant serums (Vitamin C, retinol, etc) but before moisturizer. Focus more on wrinkled areas, like the lines around your mouth.

Performance & Personal Opinion

I use Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate every morning, but you can use it at night too for a double dose of plumping.

It’s super hydrating. Hyaluronic acid + glycerin make a powerful duo that adds plenty of moisture to dry skin to restore its softness and plumpness. Just make sure you apply moisturiser afterwards to seal it all in.

Oily skin? This serum gives your skin all the hydration it needs without adding more oil to it. Heck, you may not even need moisturiser afterwards (in the AM, go straight to sunscreen).

It does what it says on the tin: whatever your skin type, all this extra moisture plumps up skin, so your fine lines and wrinkles look smaller to the naked eye. Problem is, when its effects run out, they’re still there.

I wish Eucerin had added some anti-aging actives, like antioxidants or retinol, to the mix to prevent and treat wrinkles in the long run, as well.

That’s the drawback of drugstore skincare. The only way to keep the prices low is to give you only the essentials (in this case hyaluronic acid). Anything extra would make the price go up.

If you want to reduce wrinkles (not just their appearance), this isn’t for you.

Packaging

A pack of Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate contains six vials. Don’t let the small size trick you. Each vial will last you for a week.

Does Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Concentrate Live Up To Its Claims?

CLAIM TRUE?
An advanced, concentrated anti-wrinkle serum that enhances the wrinkle-plumping benefits of the Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler day and night creams for a rejuvenated look. I wouldn’t call it anti-wrinkle. It can temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, not get rid of them. It’s very plumping – a feat that alone makes you look younger – even when you use it with non-Eucerin products.
Excellent make-up base, non-comedogenic, lightly fragranced. All true.
