Hey! I resemble that remark. ;-}

I've been using Lancome since before you were born. Yes, I'm sure about that (given that you've mentioned your age here and there). I still miss Niosome, which was the best product ever invented for the skin. It was discontinued years ago, but I continue to hope. In the meantime, according to my purchase history, here's some suggestions:

Visionnaire ([LR 2412 4%], Advanced Skin Corrector, Wrinkles - Pores - Evenness)
Rénergie Cream Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Treatment
Bi-Facil Award Winning Eye Makeup Remover

Please note that I buy Lancome almost exclusively. I've tried other things, but I end up returning every time. I sometimes switch from Renergie to Absolue.

Absolue Premium βx Absolute Replenishing Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen

I might add that I should thank you, since there's a one-day promotion going on right now, and I needed stuff anyway.

@shrdlu: Thank you! I was hoping you would reply because I definitely trust your judgement. That one day promotion...available online? (Never mind, I already found it!)

@OhCheri: If you've got the money, honey, I've got the product for you AND the little sucker WORKS!!! PaloVia laser http://www.palovia.com/ I purchased mine through QVC (and I laugh when I think of all the times I made fun of my Mom for being a QVC shopper!)
It works on the same principle as Thermage. "Short pulses of micro-fine laser light reach deeply into the skin's sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin."
I've been a sun lover my entire life. Spending all that time on & in the water has made my laugh lines noticeable. Using it on the strongest setting, this little gadget erased those lines by at least 60-70%. The finer ones are all but gone! Best birthday present I've given to myself. I use it all over my face. It does a great job of lightening a few hyper-pigmented areas I have as well. I adore it!
PM me if you have questions.

@magic cave: Zing! LOL! YOU have GORGEOUS skin, BTW!

@lavikinga: I have a question...will you give me one for my birthday, haha! At that price I'll just have to age as gracefully as possible :-)

But I do appreciate the input. Maybe someday...

@ohcheri: I took advantage of QVC's lower price+a special sale AND their no interest installment billing. It made it much more affordable. And when my husband even noticed the wrinkles were much less, I KNEW it wasn't just my imagination.

@lavikinga: Maybe I'll find one on eBay :-)

I seriously love my Clarisonic. I've always had bad skin, but since I started using the Clarisonic once a day with their rejuvinating facial cleanser my skin has never looked better. It could be clearing up with age (I'm now mid thirties) but I doubt I'm that lucky. I started getting facials this year and my facial woman has said my skin is really clean from the Clarisonic. I'm really impressed. I have had no major breakouts since I started using it, just a few small ones that clear up quickly, usually if I go a few days without using it.

@ohcheri: For what it's worth, @lavikinga has beautiful skin. If she ever really had laugh lines, then the magic laser thingy is definitely worth saving up for!

:::adding it to my Christmas wish list:::

@lavikinga: [blush!] Thank you! (It was the soft, dim light of the little bistro we were in, dontcha know?)

@magic cave: :) Yep, the haze of powdered sugar in the air can do that for a girl.

@mkdr: I've wondered how well they work. I just use a "buff puff" facial sponge, Avalon's Co Q-10 Facial Milk and Pro-Active's Toner & Lotion. The combo of using all four has kept my rosacea under control for several years, especially the associated acne that comes with it.

@lavikinga: Hey girl! I'm revisiting this idea again and I'm curious...are you still as happy with the PaloVia system as you were 2 years ago? I think it's strange that no one seems to be selling this online any more?

vote-for1vote-against

@ohcheri: Will write more later and feel free to PM me. Stopped using it last year when my dermatologist put me on Tazarac for my skin. The side effect is all those little line ARE GONE!!! Might consider using for my nasolabial lines that are creeping in. I've finally been able to shed those last pounds I have been fighting FOREVER, but it's showing with laugh line. Grrr.
