I would like to get everyone's opinions on eye and face creams that work the best and show most improvement. Also if you would like to include any body creams, feel free! I'm a woman about to turn 28 this sunday and noticing little lines here and there and am just wondering what everyone uses. You can never rely on the magazines, so.... let's see what ya got! My mother has worked for cosmetic lines ever since I was young so I've tried a lot of diff things. One opinion I do have to start this thread off is that I do believe in face serums. I use Reviv serum and I love it!

Oh hon, you're 28. You can't have that many wrinkles!
I don't think anything works, except to take the wrinkles out of the stores' and manufacturers' wallets!
One day, you, too, will sag.

I have had some success with keeping wrinkles at bay by using kinetin products, a compound from plants. Supposedly there are anti-aging properties in it. I use Almay Kinetin skin care line because of my sensitive skin.

Creme de la Mer - but you're going to pay $$$ for it. Turns over my skin every time I use it. Right now I'm just using it on problem areas around my eyes and lips.

Being 37 and having some sun damage, I can say so far after trying hundreds of products and spending thousands. Avon works. Love the vitamin c serum, has gotten rid of the sun damaged spots ( I had that photo test before and after) and their preventive creams work really well. I have been using it for 4 years, so far not a wrinkle, sag or age spot.

They say prevention is key so I guess its never to early to start...I've used the Alpha Hydrox line since I was in my late teens. It freshens my skin every time. I use the face wash and skin creams. Ponds eye cream (the pink swirly one) works amazingly well. I think it's the vitamin K in it that lightened up the shadows under my eyes. I regularly use garnier products before bed (skin renew).

It took me awhile (and a lot of different face products) before I developed a face regime. My mother always encouraged me to start one because our face is important. I have been using Oil of Olay since I was 23, which is over 10 years now, and I just have to say I love this product. I use the morning and night cream, soap, and exfoliant scrub. I unfortunately have puffy eyes and have tried the eye serums from Oil of Olay to no avail so now I have started using an eye serum made by Avon and just love it. I rarely admit this but I am lucky because of my mom's encouragement (and our good family genes) I have maybe one wrinkle on my forehead, and that's about it. None around the eyes and mouth. Good luck to you. It's hard finding the right combination for your face. It took me forever but I am very happy now.

For regular moisturizing, I use Clinique cream that comes in the pack with the cleanser soap and lotion. But, during the night, I use SHU UEMURA Recharging Cream. Here is the link to the web site.

Actually, I didn't know for shu uemura until Tyra Banks mentioned it in one of her shows. That is Tokyo line of high quality make-up and skin care. I REALLY love their Recharging Cream, along with the other skin products. It leaves my skin fresh, and not to mention that smells nice. I really do think that my skin improved a lot after using this product. I use it regularly with the Clinique Cleansing stuff.

I've used the Alpha Hydrox line for eight years now. My favorite is the 12% soufflé. I use it after every shower. It is the only thing I put on my face. I haven't washed my face in decades and wear no make-up. The only thing that touches it is water from the shower and Alpha Hydrox. I turning 46 in a few months and am still taken as someone much younger. It works great on the neck also. I have no lines at all on my neck at all; always a dead give-a-way.

I really recommend Alpha Hydrox and to recommend to start early and stick with it.

the only thing that has ever worked for me is the vaseline in the tube that you can buy in wal-mart and it is cheap. i have tried using other items (just on one side) to see if there was any improvement, and nothing!
