I've used May Kay (extra-emollient) night cream for decades and as a result, I don't have any wrinkles but I do have some developing around my mouth, which bothers me. The following was recommended:

Amazon.com: RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, 1-Ounce Tube: Beauty

...but I have a concern about dry skin. Is anyone familiar with this product and can I avoid dry skin affects by using the same brand in the moisturizer?

Meh it's ok. Used for a year then moved on to Retin-a which is 10-15x stronger than any otc product. I use it with Skin Biology copper peptides which o bought from NCN professional skincare. Happy with my skin, look 8-10 years younger. I'm 40.

If the Mary Kay has worked so well for you, why should you abandon it?

Did you read my post? See the part which says:

>> I don't have any wrinkles but I do have some developing around my mouth, which bothers me.

Yes, I did read your post....it sounds as if the Mary Kay product works well for you and nature is taking it's course as well.

If you think readers can't understand your posting, perhaps you should make it a bit more clear by adding some details....

What are you trying to accomplish? This is a forum after all. You haven't been very friendly to those trying to chat with you.

I don't mean to be unfriendly. Why generalize like that? I very clearly stated that I wasn't entirely happy with the wrinkles which were developing.

Can we stay on topic, please?

I don't mean to be unfriendly, I'm just trying to get to your meaning.

I prefer stronger products such as Retin-a and copper peptides. I used RoC for about a year, it smoothed my skin a *tiny* bit with full effect at abut 3 months. Retin-a and CPs are overhauling my skin dramatically. No, I would not go back to RoC retinol which is an unimpressive overpriced OTC product.

Okay, thank you..I just thought perhaps "Meh" was an internet acronym which I did not know. I didn't mean to be rude or unpleasant. Thank you for understanding.
