Tested: Peptide 6™ Anti-Aging Wrinkle Cream
After doing some research, I found that the company does no animal testing. It also shuns wasteful packaging and potentially harmful ingredients. That's impressive. As for the actual product, when I first put my fingers into the peptide cream, I thought it would be too heavy for my skin. I was wrong. It feels thick, but it is quickly absorbed and there is no oily residue. You just feel incredibly hydrated.

Tested: ReNew Youth™ Retinol Wrinkle Cream
What I absolutely love about this product is that unlike all the other moisturizers I've tried, it not only softens my skin, it surprisingly keeps my face oil-free all day. That's a huge deal for someone whose face usually has enough oil to fry an egg. I'm not sure the manufacturers even know this because it's the one benefit of their product they don't tout. It's a moisturizer, exfoliator and wrinkle cream all in one.

Tested: Maximum Moisture™ Super Hyaluronic Acid Cream
This moisturizer is made with hyaluronic acid, which holds 1,000 times its weight in water. That's an interesting tidbit, but the reason I care is because it makes this an intensely rich moisturizer that feels light as air. My skin is very dry and this product works wonders. I would spend my own money on this one!

Tested: Exfoliation Plus™ Fruit Acid / AHA Gel
With 15 percent fruit acid, this gel touts itself as having wrinkle-reducing and age-spot-fading properties. Well, that got my attention. And despite my fears that it could irritate my sensitive skin, I was happy to find quite the opposite: a gentle tingling sensation during the 3-minute application time, then a refreshed feel once I rinsed off the clear gel. After using it twice a week for three weeks, I did notice an improvement to my skin tone. I'll keep using it and, while I'm not overly hopeful that it will erase the age spots, I'll take the renewed, more even tone any day.

Tested: Exfoliate Me™ Glycolic Acid Cleanser
Exfoliate Me by Mango Madness is an effective cleanser containing 10 percent glycolic acid. It made an extreme difference in the acne scarring on my cheeks and is gentle enough to use daily. The cleanser successfully sloughs off dead outer skin cells without irritating my sensitive skin, too. This St. Augustine-based company seems to have a great product inventory.
