AMW Reviews: GoodSkin Labs Tri-Aktiline Total Face Instant Line Reducing Moisturizer

Who knows the song "When You Say Nothing At All?"  Oh my goodness, to all Ronan Keating fans, do not kill me after reading this post!  Let's all sing together with lyrics quite related to what I will be reviewing today...

Anti-Wrinkle Cream singing:

"The smile on your face let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes (age is showing) saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best, (referring to people who are saying you look old) when you say nothing at all...(agree! it hurts when people say you look older than your age..OUCH!)"

Seriously, I am getting more queries regarding anti-wrinkle creams, anti-aging products, or whatever products that opens up the fountain of youth!  I guess people nowadays are embracing the "prevention is better than cure" tagline! 

A couple of months ago, I've reviewed an Instant Wrinkle Filler product months ago and who would have thought the same company would come up with another interesting innovation?

GoodSkin Labs
Tri-Aktiline Total Face
Instant Line Reducing Moisturizer

Tri-Aktiline Total Face says ---
Tri-Aktiline Total Face Line Reducing Moisturizer is an all-over facial moisturizer that offers the anti-aging benefits of Tri-Aktiline but is formulated especially for use on the entire face. Tri-Aktiline Total Face Line Reducing Moisturizer was developed to meet consumer feedback for a companion product to Tri-Aktiline that can be used as facial moisturizer with the original wrinkle filler to fight even harder against visible signs of aging.
  • Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler's exclusive groundbreaking Gatuline/Kombuchka/Argireline complex helps relax the look of facial lines - fine lines and deep wrinkles.  Over time, it visibly smoothes wrinkles and boosts skin natural collagen production for long term results.
  • Phytomatrix 100, GoodSkin Labs' latest revolutionary resource, helps strengthen skin's structure and promotes new levels of firmness and elasticity.
  • A multi-emollient formula, specifically designed to complement Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler, delivers daily high-performance hydration and helps moisture bond to skin isntantly and over the long term.

AMW says ---
  • Easy to squeeze tube which makes it hygienic and easy to control product usage.
  • Made from recyclable packaging.
  • Handy, can be brought anywhere you go.
  • No weird scent.
  • Creates a nice, even base and foundation does not set in lines as much.
  • Moisturizes skin at a certain extent.
  • Absorbs to the skin quickly.
  • Does not feel heavy or sticky on skin.
  • Found this product to be great as "dry lines filler" and it does not create dry patches at all!
  • I can use this to pat on areas that turn out dry even AFTER makeup application!
  • Spreads easily over skin.
  • No skin irritations or allergies.
  • The whole tube can last half a year or more even on morning and night usage as a little goes a long way.
  • Product is good for 24 months once opened.
  • If you are a makeup artist like me, clients feel special when you whip out a product targeting their skin concerns! (I actually have one client planning to purchase this!)
  • This is not enough for dry skin individuals! 
  • No SPF, extra steps are needed.
  • Not for people who are looking for super quick and instant result.  This takes time and constant usage!
It may get confusing to a lot of you why GoodSkin Labs would create two products under the Tri-Aktiline line both targeting lines and wrinkles.  To clear things up,  The Total Face is used to prevent future wrinkles or lines formed on your face by delivering moisturization on face.  The Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler on the other hand targets existing lines and wrinkles for long term reduction.

I was told that these two products are best used to target all concerns of fine lines and wrinkles.  

  • If you have the budget, you can purchase both the Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler and Tri-Aktiline Total Face.
  • If you can only purchase one, I suggest you get the Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler first as the results are more obvious and it targets on the deeper fine lines and wrinkles.
  • If you are only focusing on wrinkle/fine lines prevention, then purchase the Total Face Instant Line Reducing Moisturizer.
  • Always apply with clean hands and dry face.
  • You can choose to massage the moisturizer all over the face and apply more on areas where fine lines or wrinkles tend to appear.
  • If you own the Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler and use this product together with the moisturizer, make sure to apply the areas used with the wrinkle filler with a patting motion.
  • This is applied prior to your moisturizer and sunblock.  If your skin is moisturized enough, you can proceed to applying sunblock directly.
  • Whatever you apply after the steps above, make sure to do so in patting motion so as not to disrupt the line filling polymer.
  • If applying SPF is too much step, you can opt to use Foundation with SPF.
  • You can mix this product with your favorite cream or liquid foundation for that extra moisture.
Will I repurchase?
Yes, I don't use this as often as I want but it's a nice product to have especially on clients!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who wants to target on prevention on wrinkle or deep lines formation. 

Where to purchase and how much?
GoodSkin Labs products are exclusively available at selected Watson’s and SM Department Stores in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu. Tri-Aktiline Total Face Moisturizer 50ml retails at Php2,600 (approx $60.45).

White textured cream-like texture

Once blended well, it creates a thin shield of moisture
No instant and visible lines reduced

Tiny amount of product applied on left portion of my forehead, 
concentration on applying more on areas with obvious lines
Used this product alone, no moisturizer, no foundation

I've also tested this on my clients and I am actually keeping this product for clients instead because it works quite well!  I like how easy it was to apply the foundation without having it sets in her lines or wrinkles!  

Note from author: I've tested this product at the back of her ear while I do her brows, be careful as some may be allergic to certain ingredients.
Another note: I've used concealer and the right type of foundation so client looks differently on  the after photo.

*whew*  Would you believe there was a power shortage in between this post?  *ugh* thank goodness for the quick typing skills I got ! :P

Do you think it's too early to use anti-aging products? 
Are you starting to use one and how young are you when you started it?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  7. Hi. Can you give examples of great eyeshadow palettes for under 500 pesos that even newbies like me can work with?

    I've been working for almost a year now and I just want to have a palette handy for when I want to look refined and polished.

    Thank you. Keep up the good work. :)

    (I posted this in other local beauty blogs, too.)

  8. christine, so far, I haven't heard anything about facial cleansers that targets eyebags. If you want something that targets the eyebags from GoodSkin Labs, there's a nice product called Eyeliplex-2! (

    The Beauty Addict, you are very much welcome!

  9. Kim, yes! Agree, you've seen how our clients asked about this no? hehehhe

    Xin, agree! But I do use this too, and I'm not that old! LOL

  10. Pammy, oh for me, the price isn't that bad to be honest as it's a huge tube and a little goes a long way! Gosh, I'm sorry about the song, it was playing over and over my head when I was typing the post!

    Kelly, I'm glad you found this review very helpful! And no, I did not win the Best Beauty Blogger award hahahha where did you get that? I was a finalist though, so thanks for congratulating me! :) You are sweet!

  14. I purchased a "total face" yesterday and I got free samples of "instant deep wrinkle filler" too.. But I haven't started using it because *I'm still little afraid* -- if this product will cause some irritations and pimples... -- Yes, I asked the saleslady 'bout these question of mine *but of course* she said "no, it won't" -- And me, not believing.. still purchased this product. So now - what? Please help...


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
