5 Drugstore Anti-Aging Peptide Products With Incredible Reviews And Reputations

If peptides aren’t already a routine part of your skincare routine, you’re going to want to get shopping. Peptides are a type of protein that naturally reduces signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes the appearance of pores.

Peptides work by signaling to your body to increase more collagen, which is a major building block of the skin. With more collagen production, your skin appears more plump, smooth, hydrated and firm. Plus, peptides strengthen your skin barrier and soothes skin due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

“Every year collagen production decreases, which causes wrinkles, dehydration, discoloration, loss of firmness, and a dull complexion,” Erin Gilbert, MD, FAAD, PhD explained to Byrdie. “Peptides help to rebuild collagen and preserve skin’s youthful appearance.

Another great thing about peptides is that they are generally suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Just be sure to read the ingredient list for any beauty product you buy to make sure it doesn’t contain anything that might irritate your skin.

The best way to incorporate peptides into your skincare is to look for products that highly concentrated formulas. Serums will typically contain the highest levels, but we also know of a few moisturizers and eye creams that do the trick.

Promising Review

”I bought this product because I had heard so many good things about it and it did not disappoint. My skin is super luminous and radiant after using this serum. It gives my skin a noticeably healthy glow every time I use it (as part of my PM skincare routine: cleansing, exfoliating, using toner, applying this serum, & moisturizing). Plus, it leaves my skin super-soft. I just use a tiny pea-sized amount and spread it thinly but evenly over my entire face. So even though it is a little expensive, I think that it's a good buy because it will last a long time since you don't have to use a ton of products to get results. I highly recommend this serum!” - diamondsmama

Promising Review

“This is my favorite moisturizer cream. I started to get those unwanted wrinkles in my late 30’s and tried botox. The botox worked but after four or five months I noticed my wrinkles coming back. I can afford to get botox and so I started trying different types of anti-aging products. I spent lots of money on certain items and wasn’t getting results. My mother suggested that I try out Olay, and I wish I would have started using this years ago. My face looks so much better, tighter, smoother, and it tames the appearance of my wrinkles. This is definitely my number one choice for a Anti-Aging Face Moisturizer. It works and it’s also affordable so it’s a win for me! I would recommend this to everyone!” - jackie

Promising Review

“I bought this about two weeks ago and after just a week I could see a huge difference in my skin. It leaves my skin so moisturized and plumped. My lips are chronically dry no matter what I had ever done and then are always soft now! And I almost break out from moisturizers but so far no break outs from this at all, if anything my skin seems clearer than ever. It is not heavy and since it is in a jar I can use just as much as I need (barely any it is so powerful.) I think the squalane is helping to keep my break outs at bay and the sodium hyaluronate is plumping out my fine lines and pores. My lips are so soft and look almost like I got fillers. Please never stop making this!” - Bex29
