I just wanted to mention that LUSH does use "chemical crap" in about 1/3 of their products. They use two preservatives, methylparaben and propylparaben.

I love Boots No 7. In fact I found it, a whole line of Boots at Target last week . Couldn't believe my eyes. I like the whole product line.

But I love the moisturizer best, No 7 Advanced Hydration Day Fluid. Smooth, light, not greasy, very nice product. About $15 at Target. I like it better than any other moisturizer I've ever used.

I bought some other Boots cosmetics as well that I hadn't used before. I liked them all. Well priced, good quality line of skin care and cosmetics.

Retin A has done wonders for my skin. It has taken a while (using it every night for a year), but my skin is unbelievable. At 43, I really have very few wrinkles (and I was a MAJOR tanner) and I always get asked what I use on my skin. And I now use tons of sunscreen every day!

The TCA peels work great once you find the right % to use for your own skin since everyone handles them differently. It helped my fine lines but I looked like a had a sunburn for a few days, along with peeling skin.

I LOVE the "Boots" line of products @ Target.

I read an article recently that said the new Oil of Olay products were just as good as using Retin A but w/o the flaking often associated w/ using a Retinoid product.

Remember folks, all the goop on our faces will help but the best defense is a good offense. Lay the foundation w/ proper diet and plenty of water. The nutrients in food are the building blocks of good skin and proper hydration keeps skin supple.

I would really warn against Chemical peels as there are so many natural and cheeper methods out there that people are just not awear of.

Many products claim to offer smother, more toned skin, instant tighter skin, and a reduction in facial wrinkles. The market is full of wild claims and miracle cures that are just untrue and don’t work. Many get conned into paying more than they should.

Believe me I have tried them all. I longed for a skin tightener that would give me the results I so desired. I wanted too look and feel better about my face, please my partner and feel confident when at work or out shopping or with friends.

After lots of disappointment and spending allot of time and money, I finally found the skin care product for the job. Its called Belisi and was recomended from a great face cream review site.

Check it out it was incredibly usefull for me.

Belisi RX Skin Tightener instantly delivers dermatologist results similar to treatments that require multiple applications and significant waiting to take effect.

I found it through a great face cream review site.
