Sure I use the Vitamin C Serum at night, wow what a difference it has made in my skin I have very little sun damage now and tiny pores.. And I use the Anew firming eye cream, not one line. I have contacts and I am constantly pulling at my eyes under and eyelids, this keeps them really firm.

I really like Arbonne's REpair Corrective Eye Créme.

Other than that, I just use Creme de La Mer as a mosturizer.

My skin takes a beating with eating lot's of sweets, smoking and the aggressive sun and tan sessions here in FL.
I have tried some of the more expensive products out there (never really thought I needed any of this stuff, until I got older and into a "skin regime")
I have had numerous complaints about the more expensive stuff (break outs, to much money spend for no or very little results, and I am AGAINST animal testings!!!)
So, I gave Mary Kay products a shot, and YES they do WORK!
I feel a difference, and SEE a difference (and NOT ONLY in my wallet!), especially with the wrinkles around my eyes.
The deep wrinkles from my nose to the corners of my mouth I will have to tackle with Restylane injections. (No cream is helping me with those suckers.....shucks! )

I have friends who rave about the Avon Anew line, especially the new Anew Ultimate Age Repair Cream. I haven't tried it, but considering it soon.

Boots - Britain's health and beauty expert, now available in the US. (http://bootsus.bri-global.com/main.asp?pid=4114 - broken link)
Thanks for sharing. I am interested. The UK product is the Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum and the US product is the Restore and Renew Beauty Serum.
Remember a few years back there was a rave over some other cream that was first used for stretch marks, then someone tried it on their face and claimed it worked for wrinkles and everyone was going after that? Does anyone remember what it was called?

Stryvectin? (bad spelling).

Just an update on Boots No. 7- I bought the Refine & Rewind - Intense Perfecting Serum. I tried it last night and boy was my face TIGHT this morning! No kidding- I woke up this morning and thought- wow my skin looks...different. I completely forgot that I just slathered this stuff on the night before. It claims that 65% of users noticed an improvement after 7 days. I think this one is a keeper. I'm heading back to target today to buy some more.

Also there's a sale at my Target on boots products (buy any 2 items from that line and get a $5 Target Gift Card).

Try It, I had a couple of bad acne scars and after 3 weeks of the stuff they are barely noticable.

Boots Restore & Renew really works (the science behind the trials is very sound) and it is great value for money. I have compiled a list of the best - and worst - anti-aging creams and serums based on my own and readers experiences, as well as documented scientific trials:

Default Boots Restore & Renew really works

No 7 Restore & Renew has been subject to scientific trials that suggest it works almost as well as prescription creams. Its a real bargain at around $21. I have researched the best and worst anti-aging serums - based on my and my readers' experiences and, where available, published trial data. See Truth in Aging

You're best off going with copper peptides, renova (or retina-a, depending on your skin type) and AHA and BHA peels. These are scientifically PROVEN to work. Most all else that you can buy is just an expensive gimick with no scientific basis. Listen, women have been using "moisturizers," "night creams" and various "potions" for generations. Wouldn't you see a whole lot of ageless women out there if they actually worked? Don't waste money on that crap. Go for that (small) handful of things that are really going to actively remodel your skin.
