Although they are better known for their cosmetics, MAC also features a skincare line with vitamin-rich creams and serums that claim to brighten the face for a more youthful look. Geared towards all women of all ages, this skincare line only features a few products, but each is geared to deal with a certain skin ailment, such as lessening oily skin or reducing the appearance of age spots. None of these products specifically focus on lessening wrinkles in the face, but they do target other issues, such as uneven skin tone and sagging in the skin.

Because of its popularity, MAC Skincare is nearly available anywhere — just check with your local high end retailer, such as Macy’s. Their prices are reasonable as well, and their most expensive cream costs $36.00. Most creams usually fall under the $30.00 range. This appears to be geared towards a younger audience, as evidenced by how they have marketed this product. They do indicate that some creams are infused with vitamins and caffeine, typical components of any anti-wrinkle cream.

Product Details

Although they do not list what is contained in each product, MAC’s skincare line contains traces of ingredients such as wheat germ, coconut, spring water, green tea, and caffeine. Wheat germ itself does not contain any skin-related benefits, but it is also infused with an important vitamin, Vitamin E. This super-antioxidant also quickens skin cell rejuvenation, and some studies state that it does increase the health of skin cells. Green Tea also has important antioxidants that fight free radicals in skin cells (the particles that cause cell degeneration). Although caffeine does not contain any antioxidants, it is a popular ingredient because of its ability to restrict blood vessels under the skin. This is shown to eliminate redness and puffiness in the skin, which is particularly useful in eye creams. Caffeine does aggravate dry skin, so if you suffer from this ailment, you might want to skip MAC’s products.

The Good

  • Contains ingredients with powerful antioxidants.
  • The wide availability of their products is a huge advantage.

The Bad

  • They do not actually state their creams reduce wrinkles – they only offer general skincare products.
  • Caffeine exasperates dry skin.
  • Products are aimed at a younger audience and do not offer any specialized creams for older audiences.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to skincare, it’s best to stick with companies that specialize in it, unlike MAC Skincare. This cosmetic company only offers a few products aimed for general skin improvement, with no plans to offer specialized creams in the near future. If this is not a concern, however, MAC Skincare’s powerful antioxidants and caffeine extracts might help improve the look of skin – albeit not in the way most would expect from anti-wrinkle products.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
