There are sooo many wrinkle creams etc on the market I am extremely confused as to which one to buy. Any mums out there have any recommendations for me? Please help- I can’t afford to waste any money on something that doesn’t work.

  • I stick to the Olay products – they are affordable and seem to work well.

  • I find for eye creams that you don need to pay more and use a good skincare brand,such as Lancome or Chanel.

  • I mix sorbolene cream and sunblock cream together and rub onto my skin. It’s cheap and seems to work.

  • none – we all get old, and none of that crap works – my gf used to buy for Channel, and I have a friend who is a dermatologist, and they both say it is just a money making market

  • I watched The Checkout on the ABC and it said that with many expensive lotions you were paying for the perfume, packaging and brand. I use the ALDI brand. It has the same active ingredients for a fraction of the price. I just make sure I have SPF 15 plus in it. It is not necessarily a replacement for sunscreen but is better than nothing.

  • olay is a great product!

  • There are so many out there a lot of companies have samples that you can buy – Avon has a 100% money back guarantee so at least that’s something to think about.

  • Try dermalogica product. Hope it can help you.

  • none of them work but use sunscreen that does work

  • there are so many out there, Trilogy is a good brand

  • I think this you will have to trial each cream for yourself until you find one that suits your skin and your needs.

  • I’d recommend any of the products by an Australian company called Rubifresh. They make organic products, and if you contact the owner (Tristan) and ask her for recommendations, I know that she’ll help you. They also have samples that they send to people, so that you can try the products before you buy. And they aren’t hideously expensive either.

  • Akin rosehip oil! its excellent!

  • I used avon for a while but now, twice a day I just use sorbolene (Redwin). It is cheap and fabulous. I have even had people tell me I look 10 years younger than what I am (I did not tell them how old I am). Made me feel great for the rest of the day. I really don’t have many wrinkles. Try it.

  • I am a big fan of Coconut oil & rosehip oil. As a Mum in her mid 40’s I find soap / cleansers / toners , ect dry out the skin too much – I slather coconut oil on my face than wipe off with a warm wash cloth. I put a few drops of pure rosehip oil on my face before applying a moisturizer ( I also like Aldi Lacura products – or – Moo Goo , which you can buy from most heath food stores). I also use coconut oil for a body moisturizer (smells great too !) & once a week apply some to my hair ends – leave on for 1/2 hour before shampooing out – a brilliant deep conditioner. I’ve also heard Mums use this on baby’s bottoms instead of nappy creams (my kids are long out of nappies otherwise I would definitely have a go !)
