From a young age, we’re programmed to believe that if we don’t hide from the sun, we’re destined for saggy, wrinkled skin. Conventional advice is to wear big hats in the summer, stay indoors at midday — protect and cover up. It turns out that it’s still possible to have beautiful skin as you age. Nearly 8,000 five-star buyers on Amazon credit a particular plumping lotion: Medix 5.5 Retinol Cream with Ferulic Acid Anti-Sagging Treatment, now on sale for $15. Many fans testify that it reduced wrinkles, reversed sagging, and improved the appearance of sun-damaged skin on the face, neck, arms, and legs—just about anywhere the sun shines.
We’re not sure how this cream—an Amazon’s Choice product—costs just $15, but we won’t question it! Read on to hear what makes Medix 5.5 so effective and popular.
Packed with powerful ingredients This anti-sagging cream is infused with natural antioxidants like black tea, aloe vera and chamomile. It does not contain alcohol or parabens and is vegan and cruelty-free.
“This lotion is amazing!” says one of thousands of fans. “Works instantly on dry and aging skin. I use it every day — great scent and amazing results.”
“Late 60s. This product isn’t a face lift, but it sure tightens the turkey skin on one’s neck,” says another shopper. “I also use it on the back of my hands as it gets rid of the ‘onion skin’. The price is reasonable, it lasts a long time even with daily use.”
“Hot granny – no more crispy skin!” a big fan testified. “I have tried SO many products for the itchy skin on my arms. They will moisturize and make my skin soft, but the wrinkles remain. This really works. The wrinkles are greatly reduced after just a few uses.”
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
It’s not just the hands that look younger. This stuff works everywhere. Apply liberally anywhere moisture is desired. Shoppers love the effects. After just a few uses, one five-star fan said, “I can already see the flaky skin on my upper arms plumping up and my sagging jowl has lifted significantly. My face looks ten years younger.”
“My knees are less wobbly,” added another. “The product is easily absorbed and my skin feels hydrated with some lifting sensation.”
Devotees say you won’t have to wait to notice the difference. Some have seen improvements after just one application: “Overnight results!” claimed an excited fan. “On my neck, neck and arms, the crepe is gone! Already! Same goes for my shins and calves. My knees and forearms are about 70% improved, maybe more.”
A solution for excessive fun in the sun
Sun protection is incredibly important: UV rays are dangerous, as you well know, and we encourage you to use SPF and be smart. What’s great about this product is that it works to repair the appearance of damage that’s already been done.
“I’m 64, raised a beach baby in Florida, in a time when we were in the sun endlessly, no sunscreen,” wrote one happy Medix 5.5 user. “Within a week [of using this product], I noticed that my neck and arms looked much better. My skin looked smoother and more even…I’m not on the cover of Vogue this month, but my skin looks so much better.”
“GThebye crepey skin,” said another devotee. And hello softness, smoothness and suppleness.
