Almay’s Time-Off skin care collection has been around for a while, but now they’ve improved their formulas and given their packaging a fresh new look.

The range, which consists of a 2-in-1 Cleansing Lotion (it cleanses and tones), Daily Moisture lotion with SPF 25 and Wrinkle Defence Cream that are all formulated with Almay’s patented anti-aging ingredient methoxypropygluconamide (MPG). What’s great about MPG is that it works much like exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids do, but is far more gentle on your skin. Thus, if you’ve got very sensitive skin that’s prone to redness or have found AHA’s too harsh, this could be your baby.

Almay Time-Off Wrinkle Defense Cream, R280, is an ultra-rich formula containing MPG to help gently exfoliate dry, dull surface skin cells and leave your skin looking more evenly-textured and radiant. Almay says it also visibly minimises wrinkles and is formulated with antioxidant vitamin E and alfalfa extract, known for its ability help stimulate your skin’s natural repair process. 

Got an oily skin type? Try their lotion, R290, it contains the same active ingredients but isn’t as heavy-feeling and has an SPF of 25.
