I work at a chain drug store and I find a lot of the products to be expensive and I read the ingredients and they're so similar, and mostly sunscreen. One woman returned an item because she paid $40 for something advertised as anti-aging and she read the ingredients and it was 100% sunscreen! That's a pretty expensive .5 oz tube of sunscreen!

I have very sensitive skin so I just use Burt's Bees (I love their products, all natural) cleanser for sensitive skin and Burt's Bees face moisturizer. I think moisturizing is key.

Not sure how much it's helping as far as anti aging though.

Something else---a lot of women return the cream that's meant for around the eyes because they had a reaction to it. One woman told me that her doctor said it's because that contains concentrated caffeine and many people's skin reacts negatively to that.

Firstly... make sure it contains 'matrixyl'.

I honestly don't believe in such. I think, like AN said, just stay moisturized as much as possible, and STAY OUT OF THE SUN! That is the number one issue for most people.

I use the cheapest moisturizer known to mankind. It's the vitamin E Creme from Dollar General, lol. I have used it forever, and it is all I need. It is $2 a bottle. And I have very very few wrinkles. But, I mainly attribute that to genetics. My family just simply doesn't wrinkle like other people do. I'm very lucky.

I also think it is so so important to never go to bed with makeup on. I do spend money on DHC products, like their face wash ( fabulous product ) and their velvet skin coat.

I think my skin looks pretty good for 55.

Cat, my mother is a world famous Medical Director in Germany. She can afford any anti-aging serum. However she buys the cheapest stuff. She says she would pay for the high end suff if it would actually do anything more than the cheap stuff. But it doesn't! I think last time I was at her house I saw Oil of Olay cream. Yup, she uses the cheap stuff and swears by it.

Btw, she is now over 70 and has hardly any wrincles!

I swear by the Olay products also. I am using Argan oil in addition (the Josie Maran brand). It now comes in regular and light formulas. It does not make you oily--sinks right in--and I have noticed a different in the texture of my skin. Wrinkles, not so much for any product, but hey, that's what they make the temporary fixes for

As a temporary fix (when I'm going out) I like Lush's Ayesha mask. It really does give you a temporary lift and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I use the CVS generic of the Olay Regenerist line. I've also acquired a couple of these;

I also use an olay regenerist knock off. Daily serum and micro remodeling cream. Love it. My sisters (who are a little older than me) both swear by strivectin cream. It isn't cheap but it was invented and marketed for stretch marks, so, the tube is enormous. Good luck

Uh, Botox people!!! lol

That, or go back in time and never tan.

That said, I use the skinceuticals line. My gf got me hooked when she worked for a plastic surgeon (well, and on cheap botox too).

I think the key is to sun protect, lightly cleanse and moisturize. And live in a humid climate. Those southern women have lovely skin. Much nicer than us desert dwellers.

I worked in new product development for Cover Girl for 5.5 years and can assure you that the raw materials for domestic beauty products come from the same wholesale companies, so you're only paying for packaging or advertising for the higher-priced ones. Now if you're going for "weird" ingredients like cow's placenta (we tried that once in a skin cream - it flopped), then they'll cost more. Personally, I use the generic Oil of Olay lotion or WalMart's night-time Firming Cream for my (Mom's) neck. I'm 63 and have no wrinkles; most people think I'm 45-50. But, I do stay out of the sun or wear SPF-50 sunscreen if I'm gardening.


Be careful what you wish for the most - you may get it.

For years I would spread Vaseline petroleum jelly on my face just before showering. By the time my shower was over it had all absorbed into my skin. I told my dermatologist that and she was horrified...lol.

Actually, petroleum is an excellent emollient. I'm surprised that your derm was horrified. My mother worked for a cosmetic company back in the 70s; it was Formula... (not 409-the cleaning product ) They had a 'secret' tar room in their plant where they mixed the petroleum into their formula. It was very popular back then.

I can't resist taking the opportunity to UNrecommend a product! I may have done so before, but I feel it's a warning worth repeating.

It's an 'anti-aging' cream called Derma Juvenate, which is advertised online - especially on sites used by elderly people - and it's basically a front for a scam.

OK, technically, what they're doing is not illegal - people accept their "free" sample, and unwittingly agree to receive regular deliveries of Derma Juvenate, and more - at very high prices. Usually, by the time the victims realize what's going on, their card has been charged at least twice. After applying for her "free" sample (p&p only), the retiree victim I know was charged several hundred dollars within 34 days. And I read multiple very similar stories on the scam sites I looked at. These con men are raking in the money very successfully, from people who can ill afford it. Both in the USA and the UK.

Please warn everyone you know - and especially your elderly friends and relatives:

Steer clear of Derma Juvenate!

I have tried some very expensive products trying to get my skin to have that youthful glow again.

BareMinerals

StriVectin

Dr. Denese

Philosophy

Perricone MD. ($$$$$)

None of them really made a difference in the appearance of my skin (I'm 58).

What I did stick with is Dr. Denise's HydroShield Hydrating Cream, my skin just absorbs it and has a smooth feeling.

Good luck!

another Olay user here, and I make sure to use the moisturizer with SPF 50. I just had the new person at work assume I was younger than her. She's 44, and I'm 49.
