I need new moisturizer and I want to try something new. A new under eye product that reduces the appearance of fine lines, and brightens the under eye area.

A moisturizer for the face and neck that prevents wrinkles and improves skin texture for a more youthful appearance.

I was watching an infomercial with some stuff that is endorsed by Cindy Crawford. Not sure of the name of it, but since it's on every night about 5X, no worries.

It looked good, but celebrity enforcements tend to turn me off, not on.

My skin is not in it's best condition. I have a wedding in June and I'd like to buy some products that really help.

I am open to ideas from all city data beauty experts!

It may help young skin keep looking young, but it will NOT reverse any damage you already have! You're talking about Meaningful Beauty....tried it..and while it feels very nice, and it does moisturize, it will not "get rid" of wrinkles that are there!

I do like their neck firming lotion...it tends to keep the "crepyness" at bay! And their moisturizing capsules are more like a primer....so foundation won't sink into those fine lines.

I use Trish McEvoy's skin brightening pencil for around my eyes...I have dark shadows under...and it helps...also use it on any dark spots on my face that show thru makeup!

If you want a great product but very expensive, Lifeline Skin Cell treatment (about $100 for a small tube).

If you want a good product at a reasonable price, Olay's Regenerist.

Thank you both. I have used Olay and I wanted to go on to something more serious and expensive.

Where is Trish Mc Evoy's eye pencil sold, cb?

How about Lifeline Skin Cell treatment.? I'm open to $100 a tube, Weezy?

You need to get moisture into your skin, that is clinically proven to do so. Use hyaluronic acid to do that. Even neutrogena makes a pretty good version. It attracts moisture into your skin.

Then you need to increase your collagen and increase cell turnover. The only things clinically shown to do that are retinoids. You can use renova, tretinoin, or one of the weaker retinol formulas over the counter.

Then you can pick an under eye cream you like to puff up your wrinkles temporarily. They all do pretty much the same thing.

Vitamin C is excellent for reducing color variation and possibly help with collagen production.
You can easily find a go no of vitamin c and hyaloronic acid.

Also, eat lots of fish like salmon. :-)

It's sold online by the maker, some shows up on Amazon, and in some dermatologists' offices.

LifeLine Skin Care

My skin is dryer. Right now I wash with CeraVe hydrating cleanser, tone with Neutrongena Non Alcohol toner, follow with ROC Retinol night cream, then I put a squirt of Intelligent Nutrients Anti Aging Serum (Oil) in my palm, then add two or three squirts of CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizer.

Sounds complicated, but the Roc is retinol, the Intelligent Nutrients is anti-oxidants, and CeraVe is Lipids and hyralonic acid. Toner is one of those things that can be taken or left...but I feel when I use it, my skin seems to take in the moisturizers, without it, the moisturizers seem to float on top and I'm greasy.

I suggest getting a professional facial and microdermabrasion at a spa/salon first. Wash face thoroughly before using your favorite moisturizer. Olay's Regenerist is good.

I use cerave too and loves it. I also supplement with a hyluronic acid gel cream sometimes. It really takes care of my dry spots. No toner, ever.

I didn't want to promote certain brands, but these are the ones I use. I'm forty and have no sagging or lines at all except for small forehead wrinkles I've had since I was 25 from expression. I do have cleavage wrinkles, although my hands and neck are great. No one told me to pay attention to my chest.

Obagi tretinoin cream .1% (retinoid) I use it at night.

I use in the morning....
neutrogena Hydo boost (hyaloronichyluronic acid)
Neutrogena sunscreen (UVA and UVB protection)

Occasional use:
Vitamin c serum- various (these do not last long, make sure you get a dark or opaque bottle)
Under eye cream - various

Hands and neck - OTC retinol, occasional use of tretinoin, hyaluronic acid to plump up cleavage wrinkles, and sunscreen
