I was really pleased to be sent some of the Avene anti-ageing skin care for review. Now that my redness issues have settled the fine lines and incipient wrinkles are a much bigger concern!
The Ysthéal+ Emulsion comes in a pump dispenser and is a nice rich, peach coloured cream that I have been applying in the evenings after cleansing. It is aimed at normal to combination skin and so I have been applying it and letting it soak in well before applying a little of my night cream as I just need a tad more moisture over night. The Emulsion is designed to both prevent, yay!, and correct the signs of skin ageing - whilst I like something that makes my skin look better I LOVE anything that is working to prevent it from looking worse! It contains Retinaldehyde and Pretocopheryl, I am not going to pretend I know what they are! According to the Avene website Retinaldehyde is the most effective form of Vitamin A and Preotcopheryl is a powerful anti-oxidant, which is as science'y as I need to get! Full list of ingredients is here:

These products were sent to me for consideration for review.
