ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 40 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 8-year-old Junior, our 5-year-old Everett, our baby and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

It's time to fill in the cracks



I need a wrinkle cream and I need it now. Fess up: What's worked (or failed miserably) for you?

I use the Neutragena one with sunblock in it. Or (if I'm feeling spendy) the super moisture one from Clinique.

Goats don't worry about such things. We just eat more grain

Drink lots of water.

The Neutrogena one in the small bottle for $17 (can't remember exactly what it's called) is awesome. But I usually use Clinique because you get a huge ass thing for $24.

Cannot help. I feel morally obligated to use chemical-free, organic blah-de-blah on my face and I'm not sure it works that well.

I don't know if they have a specific "wrinkle related" cream, but I swear by Murad. Super spendy, but works amazingly well!

I haven't tried any wrinkle creams, but I need one too. The light of the sun in the early morning in your bathroom mirror? Is that plaguing you too?

The Neutragena and Clinique creams are more moisturizers with SPF - they will not repair damage. If you are looking to repair damage - you need to get a cream that has a retinol or at least some ingredients that will increase cell turnover. On the less expensive side - the OLAY products are good - on the more expensive side Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Day and Night or La Mer. For more information - we are doing a full post next week on this very topic!!!

The Neutrogena one I was talking about doesn't have SPF and it has helioplex (their form of retinol, I believe).

I'd really like to know what Reese Witherspoon uses. Avon has great moisturizers but they put them in the jars so they lose efficacy every time you open them and therefore only end up being great for the first couple weeks. If they'd only put them in a pump, I'd totally be an Avon moisturizer girl.

I'm just going to keep reading comments. I just noticed some serious eye wrinkles and I'm desperate!

The Mother said...

There is no real evidence that any of them work. Except sunscreen--which only works in hindsight.

I called Reese but she never called me back. Can you believe it?

ROC with retinol. Once you stare down 40 it's time to use the retinol. Makes a big difference.
