My mom is 61 and I'm 28, and we both love this $29 Amazon anti-aging serum — here's why

We've been using it for months, and it's a must-have in both of our skincare routines.

Looking for a brand-new skincare product that effectively targets signs of aging? Well, look no further than Amazon Canada. I don't know about you, but I'm always searching for the next best product to add to my skincare routine — and so is my mom (maybe that's where I get it from). And the next best thing doesn't always have to be shiny and expensive — it could be hidden within the depths of affordable Amazon products for all we know.

Our latest obsession is the Triple Peptide Wrinkle Defence Serum from — you guessed it — Amazon. For less than $30, this product is totally worth adding to your cart. My mom had it first, and then I copied her (as daughters do), and we've been both collectively using it for over six months now. We've gone over all the details, pros and cons for you below.

This serum is made with three anti-aging peptides: argireline, matrixyl and replexium.

  • No synthetic fragrances
  • No harmful chemicals
  • Not tested on animals
  • Lightweight
  • Affordable
  • Easy to apply
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Sticky after applying
$29 at Amazon

This 3-in-1 serum is made with Argireline, Matrixyl and Replexium peptides. It's designed to help reduce and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and claims to improve elasticity.

What I appreciated most about this vegan product is that it's formulated without parabens, fragrances, sulphates and other harmful chemicals.

My mom actually had this in her skincare arsenal before me, which is how I discovered it. She told me her friend had asked her what she'd been using on her skin and proceeded to rave about this product to her. Her friend then immediately purchased it for herself, which intrigued me. So, naturally, I hopped on the bandwagon.

First things first, the under $30 price point is hard to beat with good skincare these days, so that was definitely a win off the bat. My mom has repurchased it two times already and is about to order a third — it's safe to say she's a big fan.

I'm still on my first bottle and am really loving it. Some things we collectively love about it include the texture and consistency: it's lightweight, not too thick and absorbs really well into the skin.

Another pro is that it instantly rejuvenates and tightens the skin, which feels great first thing in the morning. And the citrus scent makes it feel nice and refreshing (and not too overpowering). Lastly, the dropper is a great applicator, in our opinion. It allows you to control the amount you want to use, and it's mess-free.

As for the negatives, one annoying thing that we've noticed is that it leaves your face feeling pretty sticky after applying it. It definitely tightens the skin (which is a pro), but that's not a fun feeling throughout the day. No worries, though, because this is easily solved when applying a moisturizer on top as your next step — which you should be doing anyway!

🏆 "The serum feels very lightweight on the skin and leaves your skin glowing."

Shoppers seem to agree with my mom and me when it comes to this product (for the most part). One person pointed out that it's "made in Canada," which is something we Canadians can be proud of. They also said it "gives off a cool and refreshing feeling," which is pretty on point.

Another shopper says it "feels very lightweight on the skin" and also "leaves your skin glowing." They also noted that it's "super easy to apply."

One almost 50-year-old writes that it "gives nice results to mature skin" and that it's a great "preventative measure for aging skin."

For an "extra refreshing experience," one user said they "chill the bottle in the fridge for 5 minutes before use," which is a great tip that I'll be trying next time.

While people seem to love this product, one customer said that "although it feels nice to apply," they "haven't noticed any difference" in their skin. However, everyone's skin is different, which is important to keep in mind.

This affordable Amazon peptide serum has definitely earned a permanent spot in both my and my mom's skincare regimen. It's refreshing, rejuvenating and totally low-maintenance. It's an extra step that we don't even have to think twice about, and it delivers noticeable results.

However, remember to follow up with your daily moisturizer to avoid any feelings of stickiness or tight skin throughout the day and night. And remember: everyone's skin will react differently, but at $28, it's worth trying for yourself.
