Kollagen Intensiv has been named as the best anti-aging cream of 2011 and is set to get the same recognition for 2012. Yet, L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler still remains a more popular choice. We are going to take a look at both of these anti-aging creams to see which is really the better choice for getting rid of wrinkles.
The reason that L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler is more popular than Kollagen Intensiv is because of its brand recognition. Yes, L’Oreal Paris does make a lot of great beauty products and they usually come at a decent price. Compared to L’Oreal Paris, Kollagen Intensiv is not as well known. However, that does not mean it is less reputable. We predict that Kollagen Intensiv will become a household word synonymous with anti-aging in the next few years.
What they claim to do
Kollagen Intensiv is an anti-aging cream. This means it supposedly will fill in wrinkles, firm up skin, and reduce blemishes like aging spots. On the other hand, L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler is only an anti-wrinkle cream. It only claims to fill in wrinkles. Both of these products also claim to moisturize the skin and protect it from sun damage.
Do they work?
The reason that Kollagen Intensiv has become so popular is because it lived up to its claims. An expert only needs to take one look at the Kollagen Intensiv ingredient formula to understand why. All the core ingredients in Kollagen Intensiv have been clinically proven to improve skin quality and reverse/slow signs of aging. The most important factor of this anti-aging cream is that it actually stimulates natural collagen production, thus giving the same benefits of collagen injections without the risks, pain, or costs. Kollagen Intensiv has had its results tested in a placebo-controlled clinical study.
L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler contains numerous moisturizers, so it will soften the skin. However, it only contains one ingredient against wrinkles: cyclohexasiloxane. This is a type of silicon which is quickly absorbed into the skin. There, it causes skin cells to plump up and will quickly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Note, however, that this result is only temporary! In the long run, L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler is not going to help reduce or even prevent wrinkles!
Kollagen Intensiv also contains a type of cosmetic silicon so it too will provide the quick, wrinkle-filling results like L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler. However, Kollagen Intensiv also contains ingredients which stimulate real collagen production so your skin actually looks permanently younger.
L’Oreal Paris Collagen Filler is the cheaper choice of the two skin care creams. However, you will have to continuously use this cream and the results will never be permanent; it only will temporarily plump up your skin molecules so you have reduced wrinkles. While Kollagen Intensiv is the pricier option (at about $1.50 per day), it provides much better results, including increased collagen production. For this reason, we think that Kollagen Intensiv is the better value of these two anti-aging creams.
