My skin is very sensitive and almost all anti-aging creams irritate my skin. I went back to using Cliniques three step cleaning line. The toner really seems to help to brighten my skin.

I have also gotten good results with Walgreens Alpha Hydroxy face cream when I used it on my neck. Sometimes I will use it on any breakouts.

Organic unrefined coconut oil , I am very serious. You can use it to cook, and bake as well. It feeds the skin, has nourishing properties, and is amazing! In my personal opinion , the skin looks years younger. It will feel greasy at first, then soak right in, you should notice results within a short time.

The best anti- aging cream is a good broad spectrum sunscreen worn faithfully every day.Don't tan or smoke. Drink water, eat colorful fruits and veggies, get proper rest. You will have skin that will look much younger as you age.

Anti-aging?

If you want a simple moisturizer, something like Ponds cold cream or Vaseline will work.

There is NO anti-aging cream out there, we are always aging and nothing short of plastic surgery is going to change the direction of wrinkles.

You could drink more water and smile more, probably work better than creams.

Sunscreen, moisturizer, long walks, lots of water & laughter. Everything in moderation.
Make good choices, have a contingency plan and know that you can't make everything perfect. Your outlook is everything.

Not quite what you were looking for but words of wisdom just the same.
Stress is the number one aging factor. Find joy in simple things & your life will be simply better. :heartsm:

I use coconut oil too! But only at night. Sometimes I squeeze a capsule of vitamin A and one of E into it.

My budget has not allowed much for day creams, but I bought a bottle of organic all natural "body" lotion with ginger and citrus that I found on clearance for $1!! and have been using that on my face during the day. Natural just is so much better for your skin.

I buy mine in bulk from Welcome to Tropical Traditions

It is a great brand . Tropical traditions also sells on ebay.

I also love the "Living Foods" Extra Virgin Coconut oil, you can get it at most Health Food Stores. I did use organic olive oil in the past, love this much better. In colder climates it will harden, in the summer become a liquid if stored right will last a long time. It has antibacterial properties, nourishing, and is wonderful as a moisturizer and many other things. I make an organic chocolate with it as well.

I haven't had much luck with anti aging. I have very oily skin but aging. I do have acne but have been able to keep it under control. I also have very sensitive skin and seborrhic dermatitis. I have a hard time controling the seborrhic derm but I have notice that any anti aging creams of any kind makes it worse.

The best thing I have found is a moisturizer with sunscreen. I also agree with drinking water, eat well and exercise.

I have noticed that jojoba oil and evening primrose oil topically sometimes helps my skin. I also take evening primrose internally.

I agree with those who said water. I sometimes use Dove moisturizer in the winter months, otherwise I drink lots of water and eat lots of fruit and veggies. I know it works because no one ever guesses I'm almost 51 years old. Most people say I look like I'm 40 and some(usually teenagers) say I look like I'm 35, bless their hearts. Keeping your skin hydrated is the best way to keep it wrinkle free and young looking, and it's free if you have a well. I don't have a single wrinkle at the moment even though I feel I've earned some.

I have treid the olive oil and the coconut oil...could see absolutely no benefit...but hey, that's just me. I have terrible skin and was really hoping one of those would help. I held out for a few months and then gave up....
I actually like the Oil of Olay Regenerist line.

I was a Ponds girl for years but then they discontinued it. I now buy Oil of Olay for sensitive skin. It has spf 15 and I think I get it for around $7-$8 at Walmart.

its not really an anti aging, just a basic moisturizer.

I don't think there is really a true anti-aging ingredient in creams. I think it's a scam. I used them (even high-end ones) for years and I never saw even one iota of 'help' from them. I'm 56 yrs old, so I've tried it all.

I'm a big proponent of EXFOLIATING. I use one of those 'buff-puff' thingies (off brand one from WM or Target) and some gentle soap and scrub with it gently all over the face twice a week. I even do it very gently under the eyes. When you do that, you get a little faster cell-turnover and smoother skin and mine looks less wrinkly when I keep it up regularly. Plus moisturize.

Then I use an inexpensive but rich cream of any kind. Just a moisturizer. Right now, I'm liking Jergens multi-use face cream. It's in a huge (15 oz?)pink and white tub, and is about $3-something at WM, and $4-somethiing at drugstores. It makes a good makeup remover and then I leave some on for moisture. The tub lasts forever. Good old fashioned simplicity.

I never could stomach the smell of the olive oil.
