2019's Top 5 Instant Face Lift Products Reviews

Looking for the results of a facelift, minus the surgery? Look no further than these top picks that target wrinkles around the mouth, eye wrinkles, sagging skin and more.

What is an instant face lift?

The signs of aging don’t just show up in one area of the face. The eyes, cheeks, forehead, lips—in fact, the entire face—are all affected. As we age, we lose fat and collagen, causing us to look older. As the skin drapes over facial bones without fat to fill in hollow areas, the face can look gaunt and fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent.

Therefore, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach to improve skin quality and firm the skin’s appearance. Instant anti aging creams offer an alternative to pricey surgical options, mimicking the results of a face lift, injectables or skin tightening procedures with no needles and no downtime. These fast wrinkle remover creams work fast to temporarily freeze the look of wrinkles and tighten up the skin’s appearance.

The best instant face lift products deliver results, not just promises, and offer a noticeable tightening and firming effect in little time. Bonus points if they contain natural ingredients instead of harmful chemicals, artificial fragrances or fillers.

Here, we’re breaking down the positives and negatives of five of the top instant face lift solutions that deliver almost immediate results. Our testers and a professional team tried, reviewed and researched myriad of products to narrow this list down to the “top 5” instant anti aging products on the market.

Description: PotentLift instantly caught our attention for one reason: speed. This powerful instant anti aging serum visibly tightens, plumps and firms the skin’s appearance in just 60 seconds, making it one of the fastest and most effective anti-wrinkle creams on the market, without any side effects—perfect for use before a date or big event.

According to an independent consumer study, 95 percent of users reported a decrease in the appearance of eye wrinkles after using PotentLift, and 91 percent saw a decrease in the depth of forehead lines.

As we dug further, we were also impressed with PotentLift’s ingredients. It features a blend of natural, vegan minerals and proven anti-agers to target fine lines and wrinkles. PotentLift’s star ingredient isn’t just one ingredient, but a complex derived from Bentonite clay. When applied to the skin, it dries on contact, delivering an immediate tightening, firming and lifting effect.

In addition to offering fast “freezing” of wrinkles, PotentLift fights the forming of lines over time for a more youthful-looking complexion. It contains hyaluronic acid, a powerful humectant that attracts water to the skin to replenish dryness. Keeping the skin hydrated is one of the best ways to reduce wrinkle volume and give the skin a plump appearance. And because PotentLift contains other advanced anti-aging ingredients like peptides (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, pentapeptide- 18, Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate, Acetyl octapeptide-3, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7) and plant stem cells, it offers both instant and long-term benefits with continued use.

The manufacturers of PotentLift stand behind their product and offer a 30-day money back guarantee. However, it can be hard to come by: This rapid anti-aging cream is only available for purchase from the company’s website, and can sell out quickly.

 

 

PotentLift Pros

Offers both immediate smoothing action and long-term benefits.

Uses high quality vegan, natural and clinically tested ingredients.

15-Day Money Back Guarantee. Hormone free, paraben free and cruelty free.

Affordable price for 1.75oz (the biggest size offered among its competitors!).

PotentLift Cons

It is only available at the company’s website, and it sells out quickly.

Can take several minutes to dry completely.

Description: We were pleased to see a long list of botanical ingredients in Athena 7 Minute Lift, including fragrant jasmine oil, citrus oils and peppermint oil. These plant ingredients offer antioxidant benefits to help keep the skin healthy and youthful looking.

However, some essential oils are known to be irritating and may cause sensitivity. And despite its long list of anti-aging botanicals, Athena may work better as a moisturizing face cream and not as a rapid facelift cream to freeze the appearance of wrinkles.

We also disliked having to dip our hands repeatedly into the jar to apply the product, as this can lead to the spread of bacteria.

 

 

Kaffe Pros

Contains organic ingredients and plant extracts, including antioxidant-rich citrus oils, green tea and olive fruit extract.

Reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Works on Frown Lines, Eye Wrinkles, and Crow’s Feet.

Paraben-free, hypoallergenic formula.

Ingredients are clearly listed and described on the company website.

 

Kaffe Cons

Takes minutes to see results.

Jar design is not as hygienic as pump applicators.

No money back guarantee.

Description: We were excited to try Plexaderm, which is one of the top instant wrinkle remover creams on the market. We were drawn to Plexaderm because of its clinical studies, which are featured prominently on the website. Many reviewers also speak highly of Plexaderm, calling it a “true miracle”.

Plexaderm uses minerals from shale clay to form a thin layer on the skin, creating a tightening and uplifting effect. The before-and-after photos are impressive, demonstrating how Plexaderm can tighten eye bags and reduce the look of puffy eyes.

However, Plexaderm doesn’t work as quickly as some of the other products we tried. While other products delivered almost immediate results, it takes up to 10 minutes to see results with Plexaderm. In fact, the company even suggests using a blow-dryer on the face after application to make the product dry faster.

When using Plexaderm, we also encountered issues with its syringe applicator. It dispenses just small amounts of the product at a time and can become clogged easily.

Lastly, some users also reported a burning or stinging sensation after using Plexaderm. Those with delicate skin may wish to try another product to avoid burning and sensitivity.

 

 

Plexaderm Pros

Has impressive clinical results to back up its claims of decreasing the appearance of under-eye bags, dark circles, crow’s feet, smile lines and forehead lines.

Easy to purchase at Amazon and other websites.

Has a money back guarantee.

 

Plexaderm Cons

Takes up to 10 minutes to show results.

Syringe applicator can become clogged easily and can be difficult to use.

Some users claim that Plexaderm didn’t work or caused a burning, stinging sensation.

Description: Erase Cosmetics Non-Surgical Instant Facelift Cream contains proven anti-aging ingredients such as vitamin C, antioxidants and retinol. Retinol is the gold standard among dermatologists to fight the signs of aging. It works to stimulate collagen production, helping to strengthen the skin’s underlying structure and offering long-term benefits for skin health.

Erase Cosmetics also offers a tinted version of its skin lift cream for darker skin tones, which allows the product to blend more evenly into the skin.

Like the other products we tested, Erase Cosmetics’ helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, nasolabial folds and crow’s feet in rapid fashion. However, we noticed that it left a white residue on the skin, making it difficult to apply under makeup. And as some users reported, it also may leave the eyes red and irritated.

 

 

Sericin+ Pros

Offers a tinted version to provide a hint of color and better blend with darker skin tones.

Contains extensively studied, proven anti-aging ingredients.

Appropriate for use on all skin types.

 

Sericin+ Cons

The company does not offer a clear statement on its animal testing policy.

Can leave an unsightly white residue or flaky patches on the skin.

Does not work as quickly as similar products on the market.

Is difficult to use under makeup.

Extremely pricey. You need to spend $995 (1 Fl. Oz. cost about $292) to pick a bottle of this wrinkle cream.

Description: From Hawaii, Kaffé Instant Face Lift is one of the only instant face lift creams on the market that contains Kona coffee. This natural ingredient helps to reduce dark circles and energize the skin.

However, we aren’t able to see what other ingredients are in the product because the manufacturer does not list the ingredients clearly on the website. This is concerning because it’s hard to know everything that the product contains before you buy it.

One of the main downsides of this product is the price. At $149 for just 0.46 ounces, it is unaffordable for many.

 

 

Erase Cosmetics Pros

Contains natural extracts of Kona coffee, which is high in vitamins and antioxidants.

Works on all skin types.

Cruelty-free product.

 

Erase Cosmetics Cons

The company is not transparent about its ingredients and there is no clear list of ingredients to view before you buy.

May work better as a skin energizing treatment, not as a wrinkle reduction cream.

It’s expensive: you’ll pay $149 for just 0.46 ounces (that’s $300 for one ounce!).

No money back guarantee.
