Okay, I realize that creams will not take the wrinkles away - but I do believe some are better than others at minimizing them. I've done lots of online research; tried Meaningful Beauty; Dermavu; and Skinlastic and they were okay but I'm still search - any suggestions are welcome!

Retin-A. You will need a prescription though.

There are products that are over the counter, that have retinol in them, and that work quite well, although they may not be as strong as Rx products.

The one I use that has worked best for me is "Retinol Correxion, Deep Wrinkle Night Cream" by ROC. I did some reading on various products, and this one seemed to have more positive reviews than any. After several wks of use, I can see a difference in the texture of my skin. I use it on my hands too, and they look more youthful. (I'm 44, btw).

Seconded. Also, copper peptides, AHAs, and Vitamin C all have proven benefits for the skin. You might want to check out makeupalley.com, or essentialdayspa.com (the forums). There is a lot of great advice on both those websites, and someone can surely point you to a protocol based on your skintype and your specific concerns.

I used to use Neova Night Therapy(copper peptides), but saw no difference is wrinkles (although I did like its consistency, so I used it as a daily moisturizer under my makeup.)

I've been using RoC daily moisturizer (mostly because it offers an SPF of 20+) and retin-A at night (derm prescriped.) I've seen a difference.

My mother-in-law started using RoC daily & night treatments and her skin is dramatically different!!!!! Very smooth!!! That's what inspired me to start using RoC in the morning.

ROC has been recommended by a group of dermatologists. Highly recommended. I need to finish up what I'm using and then I'll try it - I'll let you all know how it works.

I just started using Skin Perfection radiance moisture, organic, no fillers, A,C,E and Niacin. One pump and it covers my face and neck, plus they sent me samples of Luminous and Eyebright.
After spending hundreds on Philosphy, Dr. Denese, and other high priced, I did some research. This one ounce is 24.50.

Default Great Info on the Creams - thanks

Thanks everyone for your feedback - I'm now armed with some suggestions and will do a bit more research. I just rec'd an eye serum, elite eye serum that supposedly is supported by years of research and reported by consumers to have great results on reducing the appearance of lines, whitening the under eye area and reducing puffiness - I'll let you know how it works!

One of the best face creams I have used is :Forever Beautiful Plus after about a week you will see a HUGE difference.

As a day time cream I use this: Daily Moisturizing Shield SPF 30 - $50.00 : Buy Professional Cosmetics Online it doesn't make my face feel heavy or sticky.

Kanebo also has really good skincare products (kind of expensive!).
