OK, I read that Glam Nation' Rejuv Organic Facial Serum plum up the skin and fills in fine lines instantly, but I've personally never heard of them at all (not that I know every brand) nor can I find anything about them on makeupalley.com. Hmmm...anyone here know of this brand?

I have deep crow's feet and few fine lines, so can anyone suggest a really great serum/moisturizer that works for that problem? I've tried emu oil for a long time and it does work to some degree, but I am sure somewhere out there must be something better than that. I'm always looking anyway.....ha!

sounds like you need more then serum since you have deep lines. have you considered injectible fillers? most over the counter cosmetics all it is is coffee that plumps up minor imperfections.

Check back with us in about 20 years and tell us all about the lines that stayed and stayed and gotten worse.

Some lotions work a little bit for a short period of time. You have to deside if you want to go to that much trouble.

Mother Nature is a mean old b-tch. Sometimes we have to ignore what she is doing to us and learn to live with it.

There is nothing, short of surgery, that will take away the lines of aging. Fillers can help, but they are quite expensive and only last a short time. None are permanent. Surgery will tighten skin and bring your look back to a younger age...but you'll simply continue to age from that point on......poor old Dolly Parton has been stretched to the limit...her mouth is about twice it's normal size...have you noticed???

No cream, lotion or potion will do more than minimize the look of your wrinkles....moisture is your best friend..

Only if you don't know what to do. I'm amazed that so very few people know about and/or practice facial exercises, I've been doing them on/off since my 30s, I think they work better as a preventative, for example people think I'm like 15 years younger than I am (and on a good day even more!) in part because I have zero lines around my eyes, but I think they can help anyone at any time. I only have a couple of lines on my forehead which only show up more when I'm either a bit dehydrated or very tired, also a little sagging on the corners of my mouth (but I'm going to try some new exercises for that!).

P.S. I'm also a great believer in good diet and taking supplements for the skin, I recommend reading "Dr. Perricone's Prescription".

My mom used this:
Buy Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum & More | drugstore.com

It looks different than it used to though. I would go with the small travel size to see how it goes or keep your receipt and return it if it doesn't work.

Silicone primers are good for "airbrushing" fine lines out.

Maybe go into the derm for a skin check up and see if they suggest a peel or micro abrasion session. Those can really help and if you have sun damage that needs removed its healthier to get those spots off before they become cancerous or deep. A specific peel would do that for you. That change will stick and stay, plus its good to have the risk removed.

I never heard of that brand you mentioned though.

OTC products will minimise fine lines temporarily. I would suggest that you, consult a dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon, medical spa. Ask them about cold laser therapy.
