Crystal Clear skincare - Lift Away The Years

I recently attended the launch of a new anti-ageing skincare product from Crystal Clear. They promised visible results after just one use, which sounded almost too good to be true! 

Lift Away The Years* is a hand held wand, which you fill with an anti-ageing serum, then use to massage your face in place of a normal moisturiser. The wand has a vibrating rollerball on the end which gives your face a massage while you work the serum in.

The serum contains Syn-Ake, which mimics an ingredient found in the venom of the Temple Viper snake, which helps to reduce fine lines by reducing muscle contractions (don't worry, there's not actually any snake venom in it!). Used in conjunction with the wand, skin should appear firmer, plumper, and fine lines visibly reduced. 

I have to say, that I was a little bit skeptical. I've tried a few anti-ageing products before ranging from the very cheap, to pretty pricey and none have done a lot.

This one has actually impressed me. I've been using it now for three weeks and I've noticed that my skin feels a lot firmer. Admittedly, I don't have deep set wrinkles, but I can actually notice a bit of a difference in the fine lines around the sides of my mouth.

I've really enjoyed the facial massage this seems to give me. I was a bit worried at first as my skin went red after the first use, but it wasn't a reaction (phew!), but more likely all the blood rushing to the surface!

The serum is pretty powerful (being an anti-ageing serum!), and so I've been using this once a day, rather than the recommended twice, at night time. This seems to be working for me, but for more mature skin, twice a day might be better. 

One downside is that I've found getting the serum into the wand a little fiddly - it's easy to overfill the small reservoir, which has led to me having a bit of over spill. 

Lift Away The Years has been proven to increase skin firmness by up to 45% and reduce fine lines by up to 27% over 8 weeks. I've already seen a small improvement after just 3, which I'm really pleased with. 

You can find Lift Away The Years on the Crystal Clear website. It retails at £79.99 for the wand and 30ml of the serum.

What are your thoughts?

Update - Lift Away The Years has recently been launched and is now available at the lower price of £59.99
