It does work well for improving the texture of your skin, but like most creams (prescription grade aside) I don't think it actually does much for wrinkles.

If you have oily skin, I'd pass on it. I only use it when my skin is really dry. It is expensive, but I've had the same jar for 3 years. I think it was around $200, but I just had to see what the all hype was about so I bought a jar. A little goes a long way.

I used the creme for years and I now use and prefer the gel. I wish my jars would last me a year though, let alone 3. LOL But like you said, it doesn't do anything to diminish or prevent wrinkles. The stuff is just good prep for makeup.

Yeah I don't use it often cuz sometimes it makes my skin greasy. Their exfoliator is my favorite product.

Yeah, if Creme de la Mer were a miracle, there would be no surgeries.

Why do they spend billions of dollars for various creams and treatments which probably don't work anyway.
I'd like to hear from women, of all ages, what they think of wrinkles on a woman. Does it lower the confidence? Are wrinkles considered as flaws? Are wrinkles preventing women from finding a mate?
As for the younger women, are you terrified to reach 35?
Also, please mention approximately how much money you spend every month to fight wrinkles.
Please, try to keep this from becoming a woman to woman advice forum about the best ways to fight wrinkles.
Maybe there are other men who also think wrinkles are attractive and sexy.
Yes, I too agree 100%. It's nice to look at pretty girls but it's even nicer to view a seasoned woman that has earned her place in the world.

My wife of 45 years is every bit as beautiful ,to me, as when we were first married ,in fact, even more so. I know how she got every wrinkle , every stretch mark, every worry line and all of that makes her so much more beautiful to me than any "young thing" could ever be.
