I have spent many thousands of dollars over the years, trying various skin care lines...from drug store to department store. I am now 46, but I started taking care of my skin when I was 21 and in college. At the time, "anti-aging" was not my concern; I was just sick of having dry, flaky skin in the cold harsh Blacksburg (VA) winter weather. So, over the last 25 years I have dabbled in various skin care lines. There were a few lines I stuck with for a few years...but then as always, I would either get tired of a line...or would be seduced by another one that claimed to have various miracle products. As experience has taught me, there are some WONDERFUL products out there, and there are some duds.

First and foremost, I have "good skin for my age", which--I am convinced--is a result of the fact that I have practiced regular skin care now for 25+ years. However, even with "good skin", I can see Father Time approaching. To all those ladies (and men) who "think" you are going to have young and gorgeous skin forever, as long as you take care of it.....not true. I had the same thought; and thus, I have spent lots and lots of money on skincare over the years. However, while I do have "nice skin for my age", my skin is still aging.

Being a man, I did NOT want to be "one of those men" who wears make-up. I did have an interest in BB creams, and I also understand there are actually some BB creams for men. However, I did not want to "go there", although I probably will reach the point, someday, where I do.

So after all of that introduction, let me talk about La Roche Posay Substiane. I was introduced to this product by a YouTube video, where the reviewer recommended it. I had honestly never even heard of it before. However, after getting the product and trying it for just one week, I have to say I am quite impressed. It is hard to explain the results, but my skin just looks good. It looks younger and firmer in a way that my previous products (as I have gotten older) did not seem able to do.

The only "con" about it is that I do NOT like the consistency of it. It is very thick and very difficult to spread on the face. I have probably used about half the container in the first week...because I have to squeeze out so much in order to get enough for full coverage. Having said that, because the results have been so good, I will just buy several tubes at a time from now on. Yes...it's that good.

I have used Substiane for several years now and love the way it makes my skin feel. I highly recommend it. It absorbs very quickly and my skin feels moist and soft. It's a perfect base under makeup. I have tried many other products looking to save but none have ever given me the same result as Substiane. [Note: As far as cost goes, I've researched extensively on the interest thinking that the coupon codes for other sites would save me money. Not so. Each one I've tried raised the price so that after the "big discount" my cart was no less than it would have been on Amazon so I return to ordering here, where the fair price is offered up front and Prime delivery gets the product to me much more quickly than competitor's standard shipping.]

It's a great product that smooth your skin. It can be perfectly absorbed within minutes after applying on your face, and effectively make wrinkle disappeared within couple weeks. I just love it.
