Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer
Jergens is legit. From its breakout success with tinted moisturizer to its firming lotions, reviewers can't get enough. Stores can hardly keep it stocked, people love it so much. Total Beauty's site says it's one of the best in the lineup, based on customer reviews.
Nivea Skin Firming & Soothing Concentrated Serum
Cosmo says this is one to beat. The concentrated formula sinks in instantly, allowing max efficiency with visible firming results.
Philosophy Amazing Grace Body Firming Emulsion
This isn't cheap, but with an average 4.7 out of 5 star rating on Sephora, we're guessing it's worth a shot. Reviewers shout it out for its firming properties as much for its great scent and the work it does on even super dry, super sensitive skin.
L'Occitane Almond Firming and Softening Supple Skin Oil
The name just sounds sexy, right? This is another high-end product users love. L'Occitane says that after testing, 100% of women saw suppler skin, 96% saw firmer skin and 88% saw stretch mark reduction.
Dior Svelte Reversal Body Contouring and Firming Concentrate
MSN has this on a "best of" list. It uses silicone to smooth skin and grape extracts to firm from beneath skin's surface. It must be good because we could only find one to purchase online at Amazon, it seems to be sold out everywhere else.
Dior Svelte Reversal Body Contouring and Firming Concentrate, $141 at Amazon. Typically sold for $64 at most retailers when available.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, Firming Butter
Not only do users say it works on stretch marks, but one said it helped firm her skin after weight loss. Can't argue with that. Only caveat with this super popular product: some say the smell is too strongly sweet. Sniff before you buy.
Aveeno Positively Ageless Firming Body Lotion
Reviewers love the scent, the non-greasy formula and say from all the other brands they've tried, this is the one they stick with.
Skin firming creams sound like a too-good-to-be-true snake oil sales pitch, shouting to you from the beauty aisles preying on your weaknesses and insecurities about a less than totally tight, flawless hide. We know. And it seems just about every company that makes lotion or moisturizer has jumped on the bandwagon. From ultra high-end to drugstore deals, even if we wanted to experiment, there’s no way we could try them all.
Cue the magic of the Internet. From expert glossy sources and countless reviews from people who have actually taken the plunge and slathered on one of these wonder creams, we’ve got the top list of skin firming creams to try. And psst…if reviewers and experts are to be believed, this concept isn’t total BS. While there is no permanent fix via cream (or needle or laser) and causes vary widely from diet and exercise to genetics, many women have been pleased with the results. Take note: the ones who saw the best results ate well and exercised regularly in addition to using firming lotions, whose benefits aren’t game-changers, but a subtle improvement that’s more visible on a healthy physique.
