|Nina Ricci Time Defense||
Nina Ricci is a French luxury brand that is primarily known for its fashion and luxury perfumes. Founded in Paris in 1932 by Madame Ricci and her son Robert Ricci, Nina Ricci has become a prestigious name in the French luxury goods industry. Madame Nina Ricci passed away in 1970 at the age of 87 however the brand developed rapidly during the 1970′s and became one of France’s leading exported products. The company’s operations developed and later produced other product lines including ready-to-wear, leather goods, fashion accessories, perfumes and also a line of skin care products.
Nina Ricci Time Defense is one of the products in the company’s skin care line. The product is marketed as an anti-aging and anti-wrinkle cream. The cream is intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. It is also promoted to smooth the skin and to give the complexion a more youthful appearance overall. The Nina Ricci official website does not publish the full list of ingredients. However, according to many online retailers that distribute the cream, some of the ingredients that may be in the formula include rice peptides (known to hydrate and restore the skin), flax extract (used to fight against aging of the skin), yeast and sunflower seeds to boost collagen levels, and phyto-estrogens to firm and tone the skin. The Nina Ricci Time Defense cream is to be applied to clean dry skin before bedtime and, when used as directed, the product promises to produce immediate as well as long term benefits to the skin.

The Bottom Line
Nina Ricci Time Defense may be marketed as an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle skin care product but the truth is that the formula likely only includes run-of-the-mill ingredients found in other common products. Without a full list of the ingredients, the claims cannot be substantiated. The ingredients that are listed may contain moisturizing benefits but the formula may lack anti-aging benefits which many consumers desire in a night cream. Many consumers will likely purchase Nina Ricci Time Defense because of the brand name which has been around since the 1930′s, however there is more to a product than the name. Anti-aging products which contain advanced ingredients are the ones that consumers trust and will buy again and again. This product seems to be just another skin cream that will likely be added to the cosmetic drawer of unused products.
