We are now going to analyze the cream of the multinational L’Oreal, one of the most used by men. It is a moisturizer that can visibly reduce wrinkles. And for the reduction of wrinkles they use an extract of the Boswellia plant.
I’m looking forward to analyzing the INCI to see where they have placed their anti-wrinkle asset, and to see if the brand is adding harmful ingredients to their formulas.

Summary analysis of L’Oreal Men Expert Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizing Care
As expected, the formula leaves a lot to be desired. There are only two active ingredients, peppermint extract, and boswellia extract, and both are potentially sensitizing.
Peppermint is at the top of the list, and it can offer a cooling and calming effect, but boswellia is in the middle, and its effects do not go beyond soothing and lightening the skin. I don’t understand what anti-wrinkle effect the brand is referring to.
I like that it includes a couple of sunscreens, but I am quite concerned about the amount of harmful ingredients it includes, such as silicones and irritants (in the first ingredients), toxins, parabens, and various fragrances.
Its effect, if it has any, is purely momentary. Silicones and nylon will smooth and smooth the surface of the skin, but nothing else. It does not have any assets that can reduce wrinkles.
Much better than this cream is the Nezeni Cosmetics option, a treatment that, in addition to hydrating (with hyaluronic acid), reduces wrinkles and prevents new lines from emerging (thanks to the Cobiolift).
It is the cream that I use at the moment, and since it is unisex, it can be used interchangeably by women and men. If you want more information about this product, you have the complete analysis in the link that I put above.
