The best anti wrinkle cream is a good sunscreen. I use sunscreen everyday even if I'm hanging around the house. I had a pre-cancerous growth taken from my face years ago by a plastic surgeon and he scared the daylights out of me. Then a couple of years ago my dermatologist recommended that I use sunscreen at home since I use compact fluorecent bulbs. I may have some issues with my skin but wrinkles not at all and I hit the mid century mark last year.

Skinceuticals C+E serum. Awesome! Also their B5 gel, which makes skin supple again, like a baby's butt!

Go for that (small) handful of things that are really going to actively remodel your skin.
And if any of the above worked (incl. the last sentence), the stars and socialites wouldn't go under the knife! That being said, I also buy my fair share of more or less expensive hope.

Avon Anew. It's amazing. I bought mine on ebay. I've also heard really good things about Boots7 and I wish I knew which one is better.

Vitamin C creams will help younger skin but from what I've read, it doesn't do much for older skin. Does the Boots7 have the copper peptides?

I tried Boots 7 and did not like it. I read on the web in more than a few places that the Boots 7 they send to America is not "as strong" as the original one in England. I even have read that people in America will buy the "real one" on sites like E-bay from Englanders.

Right now for my night time moisturizer I'm using Oil of Olay mixed with vitamin E from a capsule. I really like it so far, but am on a search for the Boots #7 that I've been reading about!

Mayo and yogurt. Inexpensive and work very well. Have tried many of the expensive creams and these work just as well. Right now using a mix of olive oil, lemon juice and honey.

Recently read a report in Consumer reports that tested many of the most famouse US brands. It concluded that Oil of Olay had the best results. I don't remember the exact product but it was within the last few months so is very current.

Skin Ceuticals Retinol 1.0 and CE Ferulic ! The best. Also SPF 30 every day no matter what!!!! Skin Ceuticals Ultimate UV defense is the best, not greasy at all. Im an esthetician , I know what works! For product reviews try makeupalley.com ... great place to see what other people think about products before you purchase them!

Default Mojo is right about copper perptides

Copper peptides are very effective and there is a lot of clinical trial data to back that up (they are used to treat scars on people who have been seriously wounded). Super Cop 2X is a good product for deep wrinkles and acne scars
