Era Ageless Future is a canadian luxury brand of natural anti-aging products. Their tag line, “Defy aging naturally” really says what the brand is all about.
I learned more about their philosophy on their website
Through our philosophy of preventative medicine, ERA strives not only to reverse the signs of aging once they appear, but slow down the aging process all together without harsh chemicals.
While I am in my 30s now, I do admit that anti-aging is still not my priority. The only thing I do (and some may argue that this is the most important thing) is apply sunscreen every day, rain or shine. I do it because I still have dark spots caused by breakouts and I know that the best way to get rid of them is to make sure I protect my skin from harmful UV radiation.
As you will see these are luxury products. They are not accessible to the masses as they are quite expensive, but it is still possible to try them out and benefit from them by, for instance, getting their starter kit. It’s still 150$, but worth a shot if you can afford it.
Read on to learn more about the brand and the products I tried.
In-Depth Uplifting Eye Gel – $349.99
According to the brand
This gel is meant to be used only 1 to 2 times per week. It has a very thick and sticky texture that I lightly tap onto my undereye area with my ring finger. Since the gel is quite sticky, even if I wanted to, I could not drag it under my eye; I have to lightly tap it in to distribute the product evenly on my skin.
When I first applied it, I felt my eyes stinging and watering. I do not know why but it quickly subsided. Then after tapping the product under my eyes it just amazingly absorbed into my skin and my undereye are was soft, moisturized and dry in a matter of minutes. This product has the most enticing claim of all “as a safe alternative to cosmetic injections”. Knowing how much of a big industry that is, I know many women who would rather apply a cream then get botox or juvederm injections. Moreover, in that context, the 350$ price tag seems quite reasonable. You only need the smallest little dot of gel for both eyes and it is meant to be used only sporadically. It ends up being a good investment.
Again, I cannot say if it helps with under eye circles, bags or wrinkles because 1.) I am 32 and 2.) Black don’t crack
Still, I will keep on using it because it feels good to pamper yourself and to know that you are helping your skin age gracefully.
According to the brand
This serum is meant to be used once or twice daily on clean skin, before your moisturizer. I have been using this product for a few weeks now and it is a lightweight clear gel with an extremely subtle rose scent.
After use my skin feels moisturized and the gel is absorbed by the skin almost right away. Now my difficulty with reviewing such a product is that I do not have wrinkles or clear expression marks yet. Nor does my skin, thankfully, need firming. But I sure am happy to try and prevent these issues with this serum that I have been faithfully using every night since I received it. I like having a serum as part of my skincare regimen and this one was a pleasure to use. One pump delivers quite a bit of product and it is enough to cover my whole face and neck.
According to the brand
As you can see below the gel has a thick but smooth consistency. When I first applied it I was a little confused by the directions as I let it sit on my skin for 1 minute before working it in and it obviously dried on me. I had to wet my fingers to make it work. The second time around though I applied the peeling gel and immediately started working it into my skin in circular motions. As you can see below the gel changes texture then the peeling action begins and you can see it happening on the third image.
Like all of the other products I have tried the peeling gel has a very subtle scent that can almost go unnoticed.
After using it my skin felt clean, soft. It did not feel irritated or dry. I have used it 4 times now and I cannot say that I have seen an improvement in the size of my pores or my skin tone yet, but I did notice right away that my complexion was brighter.
While most ingredients are certified organic and meant to be of high quality these are not 100% natural products. Still, they are an interesting alternative if your are looking for anti-aging product with natural ingredients and if you have the budget for them.
I also liked the packaging a lot. It felt luxurious and of very high quality.
If you want to treat yourself to something new, I suggest you get their Starter Kit.
