I've seen all these commercials that promise to reduce wrinkles. Which ones actually work?

And does that eye roller really work to reduce under eye bags?

StriVectin is great, but it's a little pricey. I'm very happy with Olay Regenerist it's worth it and it lasts a a long time. The under eye rollers claim to reduce puffiness because they contain caffine, I have one and don't notice a difference, the thing that works the best for me is placing damp teabags on my eyes and letting them sit there for 10 minutes or so.

If any of them worked, nobody would go under the scalpel.

If you read the fine print, most of these products basically are temporary, cosmetic fixes, not permanent healing processes. Notice the words: 'helps the appearance', not 'eliminates the issues'. However, I do find Porcelana a good product for helping get rid of age spots. But you have to use it for a long time, it worked on a couple of spots I had, after about 2 mos of applications twice a day.

I had to ditch the undereye rollers with caffeine; after a few uses, it made my eyelids twitch a lot. It didn't make a big difference in appearance for me while I did use it.

Retin-A (prescription) and retinol (in a lot of products OTC) will reduce wrinkles and slow down the rate at which new ones form, but you also have to be vigilent & consistent about using sunscreen.

Latisse (bitmaprost is the generic name) does work for lengthening eyelashes and making them fuller. Some people get irritated and/or itchy eyelids from using it.

Clarisonic and other sonic cleansing machines improve blood flow to the skin surface and remove dead skin cells from the surface, making the skin look plumper and smoother and thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

If you're getting wrinkles that means your collagen production has slowed significantly. Therefore, you need to up your amino acids and vitamins/minerals intake, drink more water, exercises regularly, and perhaps buy a decent facial rejuventation massager to use once or twice a week. Buying wrinkle creams doesn't resolve the underlying cause of wrinkles.

I am trying to get rid of the black bags and wrinkles under my eyes.

What about the Neutrogena brand?

you need to see a Plastic surgeon that is the only thing that will help Blephroplasty is what you may want to do reseach.
