9 of the Best Skin Firming Cream Products Available Online
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: skin firming is not just for the face. Skin is skin wherever it is and it deserves the same attention as the face. That being said, it is undeniable that the face and neck are the first things that people see, and they are the most exposed to environmental stresses.
Because of that, as much as we would want to be democratic, we will still be focusing on firming face creams that tightens sagging skin and neck firming creams that work.
As usual, we are looking at the best neck firming cream and the best lifting and firming face cream based on reviews by Amazon users. We are also throwing in some products that include the décolleté or décolletage (which is fancy for the V portion of the chest that ends in your cleavage) and one just for the skin under the eyes. Okay? Fine, let’s get going!
1. Dermarie Neck & Decollete Firming Anti-aging Skin Cream 1.7 oz. / 50 g
As promised, we’ll start off with a neck and décolleté cream. This is said to decrease elastosis (degeneration of the skin) activity with the use of Acetyl Dipeptide-13 Diphenylglycine by restructuring the adhesion between skin layers. This is the skin firming action of the product for the neck and jaw line. The Peptide Hexapeptide-10 is said to improve cellular health and provide good skin balance, while hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin. Those are mighty long words, all right, but users love it. It is recommended that the product e slathered on the neck and jaw line twice a day using upward stokes, presumably to help defy gravity. Heck, it can’t hurt.
2. Cellex-C Skin Firming Cream Plus, 60 ml
This is a light skin-tightening and hydrating cream that uses a patented formula called Cellex-C Complex. Its main purpose is to tighten that sagging skin on the face, neck and décolleté. It is applied after cleansing and before putting on a moisturizer (but only if you feel the need to). Ingredients include ascorbic acid, sodium hyaluronate, evening primrose oil, tomato extract, and chamomile extract. It is considered one of the best skin firming cream for face and neck and yet it contains parabens and added fragrances (gasp!).
3. Clarins Extra Firming Night Rejuvenating Cream 50ml/1.7oz - All Skin Types
The company claims that this is the best lifting and firming face cream around for night use, but they all say that. However, 75% of Amazon users (3 out of 4) think it’s the cat’s whiskers (the 4th one had an allergic reaction) so maybe it could be one of the better ones. As can be deduced from the label, it is a night cream that is designed to tighten the skin while your sleep and with regular use you should see a
4. Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream 1.7 Fl Oz / 50 Ml
This one uses Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen to make skin soft and hydrated and prevents early wrinkles. It is quickly absorbed with a non-greasy feel to improve skin firmness and elasticity. The ingredients are thankfully in layman terms: hydrolyzed marine collagen, olive butter, sesame oil, lactic acid, aloe vera gel, avocado oil, avocado butter, ginseng extract, and wheat germ oil. The company claims immediate positive results in 94% of users. It is recommended for people with oily, combination, and dry skin and should be used daily for maximum results.
5. Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming Sculpting Face & Neck Cream Normal / Combination Skin 15ml*5=2.5 Oz
This product tells us we can look as young as we feel (which is 16 years old) by using it because it has something called the Photo-Activated Lift Complex which is supposed to use the benefits of visible light to tighten your skin. The key ingredient in this complex is the light-responsive plankton extract, malachite, and mimosa that will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. With continued use, this complex can make you look and feel like the inner, younger you by erasing fine lines and wrinkles and defining the face. Clinical studies show that 92% of users looked younger after 4 weeks of use. But there’s a snag. Maximum effectiveness requires other products for use at night (Resilience Lift Night and Repair Serum). It is recommended for normal and dry skin.
6. Revision Nectifirm - Cream for Firming of the Neck and Decolletage
Another neck and décolletage product, this is designed to work for men as well. It is primarily an anti-wrinkle cream by tightening the skin using bamboo extract, silica, and English pea (with an “a”) extract. Peptides improve skin elasticity and minimize the signs of aging. It also has Vitamin C and E as antioxidants.
7. VivierSkin Firming Eye Contour Cream, 0.4 Fluid Ounce
If you have great skin overall but the skin around your eyes make you look like you won the lottery but burned the ticket, this could save you from that hangdog look. It is designed specifically to address crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles. It is recommended for twice-daily use and is a good base for makeup. This medical grade formulation has botanicals, peptides, and antioxidants that firms and hydrates the delicate skin surrounding your eyes.
8. Dr. Denese Firming Facial Age Corrector Cream 3.4 Oz - Super-size!
Not much information is forthcoming with this product, but many users swear by its efficacy. Some have been using it for several years, which may explain why the description was quite brief. Baiscally, it is a corrector cream for skin tightening using actizone (chlorzoxazone) which is a muscle relaxant. There are shades of Botox here without the needles. The company also claims it exfoliates and tones the skin overnight. We’ll take their (and their users’) word for it.
9. La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, 1.7-Ounce Box
Another of those very popular but masters of brevity, this product goes for a whopping $238.49, but with 27 5-star reviews, it must be pretty good. According to its description it is the “utmost” (how often can you use that word, seriously?) in firming and hydration. It claims to actually use caviar extract (thus the price tag is explained) to improve skin health, texture, and smoothness. It is used once daily very sparingly on a clean and toned face, neck and décolletage.
Skin firming creams are one of your best bets against wrinkly aging skin for the long-term. Nightly maintenance over several weeks with some of these products will give you younger looking skin without all of the expensive procedures or clinic costs.
