My stepmother is now in her mid 50s (wow) and has used Nivea regularly for as long as I've known her (30 years, wow, time flies). She looks fantastic.

I have all kinds of jars of different things, can never find them, usually forget to use them anyhow. [People think I'm a lot younger than I am, but no clue what, if anything, has worked.] I currently like this brand Boots sold at Target, but trust me I have used Chanel, Christian Dior, La Mer, and everything in-between.].

I use Oil of Olay for the moisturizing part and sunscreen on top of that for the daytime and Oil of Olay nightcream for the evening. For my eyes I dab a little bit of a hydrating serum from Avon. I unfortunately have puffy eyes so the serum has produced amazing results. I am 33 and still do not have a wrinkle yet. My mom is 52 and her skin is barely showing signs of age. But she also uses her products religiously. She uses NuSkin and Lancome.

I wash my face with good old Noxema. I've used original Oil of Olay since I was in my teens, and so has my sister. She's 38 and still gets carded. Seriously. I also like the Oil of Olay night cream as above poster mentioned. Oh, and Oil of Olay makes a clear eye gel. Since I live in the desert I use that at least once a day in between. I've tried Clinique and Estee Lauder, but frankly I like Oil of Olay products the best.

Thanks Karla for the mention of Oil of Olay's clear eye gel. I've tried it before but did not have the same results as I am now having with the Avon product.

Do they have a gel? I'm not familiar with their products. I really like gels here in the desert. Years ago someone told me to put it in the fridge. Wow, does that feel nice to rub ice cold gel on your face after being out in 100+ degree weather.

I use almost exclusively Lush products. They have a bunch of moisturizers at various price points and you can order online (but I absolutely love their store!). I use just plain old jojoba oil around my eyes (though I'm only 19, so it's more of a preventative measure for now) and jojoba oil all over my face as a night moisturizer, and Lush's Tea Tree Oil facial spray and celestial moisturizer during the day.

I also have always used products geared toward "mature" skin which keeps my sensitive skin happy.

I used to use Oil of Olay products but for some reason, as I got older, they started making my face break out. A friend told me about Eterna 27 by Revlon and I've been using it for about six months. It seems to be working really well!!

i have recently fallen in love with a product from bliss called 'youth as we know it' face cream. its kind of pricey ($79 for a jar) but its great on super dry skin. i have been searching for a good face cream for really dry skin for a while and absolutely love this stuff.
