Well that's what I am looking for. I want something that does not involve 17 different products or steps. I want to afford it, and once purchased, use it.

I was thinking of something with vitamin C and Retinal.

Was looking at products by Roc. Also has anyone used Strivectin?

Thanks. I need some help with this

I got rid of crow's feet lines and improved the overall texture by using Olay's Anti-wrinkle Night Cream for Mature Skin. I recommend it to everyone and one in particular has loved what it did for her. I get it at Walgreen's for about $15. A little goes a long way. It's a small white jar with a black lid.

Get something with Tretinoin in it, like Retin-A. It's commonly used for everything you've listed.

I know Retin- A - but isn't that by prescription?
Does anything else have Trentinoin?

I tried strivectin tightening and its definitely for the over 40 crowd. Get a sample though to see if it works for you.

But first step I would do is to get some of that dead skin off so whatever cream you do use can have its best results.

Home product:
Sephora: Brazilian Peel Brazilian Peel™: Aging

Peels make anyone's skin look its best and really freshens up any lines. You don't have to do it every day.


Then whatever facewash should be a cream or non-drying. (suds tend to be drying)
Exfoliate 2 times a week at least to keep it fresh and bright. You may not have to during your peel weeks. Use whatever works. (scrub, facebrush, salt, sugar, buff puff, washcloth)

Toners are optional but I think a good idea to calm the skin after exfoliating.
Witch Hazel with aloe:
Premium Witch Hazel : Thayers Natural Remedies, Since 1847
(can also be used as an aftershave for men)

Then whatever moisture product you choose.


3 steps with occasional peels and check ups at the derm office for sun damage gone bad.

I'm a fan of the Alpha Hydrox line, which can be difficult to find in stores, but can be purchased online.

I use the Foaming Face Wash (non-drying! I used it while on Accutane for the pH balance), Retinol ResQ (at night on my face, neck, chest & shoulders), 10% Glycolic Treatment - Oil Free (in the morning before moisturizer).

I also use a moisturizer with SPF, Neutrogena being my preferred.

And I also use a 20% Glycolic Acid product, Glytone, a couple times a week. Sometimes I use it during the day if I'm not going anywhere or I'll use it in place of my nightly retinol treatment.



FWIW, I've tried RoC and Strivectin, among others, and they didn't impress me.

I liked that AH wash too and didn't think it was as drying as most sudsy ones. I only stopped using it because of breakout city where I had to switch to an acne treatment line.

Any signs of a breakout and I use Noxema's Triple Clean (has Triclosan which freaks people out, but I believe it's useful in moderation.) Love this facial wash!

Ooh...buying that as my next drugstore trial. Since my skin is clear now I may move off the proactiv to save a few bucks and prevent my skin from getting used to it.
