Anastasia Line Erasing Serum Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm a huge fan of Anastasia's brow products - she is Hollywood's brow guru after all. I keep these products stocked in my kit and they make a world of difference. Recently, the line has forayed into new products including skin care. I had the opportunity to try out Anastasia's new Line Erasing Serum.


What It claims:

Hydrators, Instalift(TM) Goji, and an exclusive Balkan Botanical(TM) Infusion to improve the appearance of skin and help reduce signs of aging. Designed for all skin types, it soothes, softens, and hydrates&#151leaving skin brighter and smoother. Fine lines and wrinkles don't stand a chance! -Instalift™ Goji (Tibetan Goji Berry): Gives the appearance of reduced fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.-Balkan Botanical™ Infusion: Helps soften, soothe, and hydrate skin.-Sodium Hyaluronate: Delivers ideal hydration to smooth and refresh the eye area.-Chrysin and Hydroxysuccinimide: Masks the appearance of redness while leaving the skin looking brighter and lighterWhat else you need to know: Daily use gives the appearance of diminishing fine lines and wrinkles while maximizing moisture retention. This formula absorbs instantly and delivers long-lasting results.

My Thoughts:

Feels a little sticky, not extremely moisturizing. That's why I would apply this in combination with your nightly moisturizer. I dont have a lot of fine lines yet, knock on wood, but i'm more into wrinkle prevention. I didn't notice any weird allergic reactions so that's a plus. In all, I didn't really notice too much of a difference for my skin type and age. My main benefit would be peace of mind that I was contributing to wrinkle prevention.

Would I Buy Again:

Probably not, I need something with more moisturizing properties for my dry skin and I prefer products that sink more into the skin. However, I did read some reviews of women with more mature skin and it seems like they really noticed a difference. Apparently, Dimethicone gives it the impression of filling in fine lines and those with loose under eye skin noticed a lift.

Try it yourself by purchasing it for $45 at Sephora or http://www.anastasia.net/

There are other ingredients in this product that help with "Line Erasing". Based on the ingredient listing the Line Erase Serum also contains Haloxyl (a peptide that helps with dark circles), Eyeseryl (a peptide that improves blood circulation, draining baggy eyes) and Argirline (a peptide that is a Botox alternative). I have found that using it in combo with my daily SPF moisturizer works great!
