Best Skin Care Products for 40s

I am 40. I do not want to look 40. I intend to fight it every step of the way. I have four rules for myself eat right, go to the gym, take care of my skin and do something each day that I love.

I came to the conclusion that you are also faced with not wanting to look 40. You may also have a cabinet of stuff that worked for you but no longer works. I had that happen with my hair. It got old so I began testing everything until I found something I like. You can read that post on What To Do When Your Hair Turns 40.

I also love red lipstick so I wrote about which one stays on the best. Yes, everyone can wear red lipstick! Own it girl! You can read the best red lipstick post.

Best Skin Care Products for 40s


Real Chemistry fresh start foaming cleanser
This is suggested to use after their peel. I liked the texture, and it foamed easily. You apply it in circular motions. I wasn’t a fan of the smell. However, the product left my skin taut so I would use it again. I give it 4 lips.


Clinique Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream
It has an interesting smell and it spread on easily. it is for combination skin. I used it for three weeks. I didn’t see much of a difference but maybe over time I would have. I also do not have extensive areas that need uplifting but I will give it two lips for effort because you can feel some firming when you apply it.

Eye Creams

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Creme
I used this for three weeks and I didn’t see much of a difference. I found that it dried the area around my eye. I just wasn’t impressed. I give it 2 Lips


Acure Fruit Peel Purifying
It went on smoothly but it took forever to try. I waited 12 minutes and then peeled it off. It should be on for 5-8 minutes 1-2 times per week. I liked the smells but my skin really didn’t feel that different aftewards nor did it look different. It wasn’t my favorite peel. I give it 1 pair of lips.


DR. Brandt microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator
I give it 4 pairs of lips. This came as a sample in my BirchBox.


Lancôme Bienfait Uv SPF 50+ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Super Fluid Light-weight, Oil-free Facial Sunscreen
This is by far my favorite product for sunscreen for my face. I wear it year long. It is light and doesn’t move during the day. I highly suggest this product it improves the way your skin feels and protects it. I give it 5 lips it is a true must have.

COOLA mineral based SPF 30 unscented matte tint received in my Birch Box.
I found that the product just laid on face and didn’t really work that well for me. It was said to hydrate but that wasn’t my experience. I would live it 2 lips because it may work for someone else and it is a great idea if you like mineral make up but it wasn’t a score for me.

I would like to suggest you subscribe to birchbox is you also want to try products. Then you can buy the larger sizes.
