I will do just about anything Ron Robinson says when it comes to skin care. Few cosmetic chemists are more prolific than Robinson, who worked closely with Hailey Bieber to develop Rhode and is behind some incredible products from L’Oréal. Robinson’s own brand, BeautyStat, has seen huge success, and I think the newest product is my favorite yet. The Peptide Wrinkle Relaxing Moisturizer ($72) does what I never thought a cream could do, but what else do we expect from the expectation-defying Robinson?
Peptides are a hot ingredient right now (hello Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment) and Robinson expects their popularity to only grow. However, the peptides in this moisturizer go well beyond your basic benefits. BeautyStat’s proprietary blend combines two neural (muscle-relaxing) peptides and a 222-amino acid peptide.
Neural peptides in the skin control the contraction and relaxation of muscles by interfering with neural mechanisms, explains BeautyStat. These neural peptides are what helps give the product its first-of-its-kind cutting edge. By relaxing the muscles, this ingredient delivers a “Botox-like” effect. You’ll notice instant and long-term skin tightening and smoothing—I know I did, especially on my forehead.
I’m not the only one who has noted these benefits—90 percent of people reported a dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in skin elasticity. Additionally, 85 percent felt their skin immediately appeared tighter, lifted and smooth.
“My approach is about architecting immediate skin-tightening and unparalleled reduction in lines and wrinkles,” says Robinson. “I’m committed to crafting skin care that exceeds expectations, ensuring consumers experience the transformative results firsthand.”
On top of this, the formula is deeply moisturizing. Putting it on, whether before makeup or on its own, is a confidence boost because I know it’ll help soften any lines while also promoting a hydrated glow.
