Eye Cream
Hi, I'm only 20 years old and I've been battling deep, genetic, under eye bags for years now. They aren't particularly dark circles and they aren't puffy, but deep lines that do not cover and make my eyes look sunken. I was told genetic eye bags are harder to get rid of and have seen no results in any product I've used. Most recently, I've been using the Benefit It's Potent product(for a couple month's, at least once a day), and haven't seen any results with lines. What will work??

Anti-aging products to start using at 18?
Hello everyone I'm 18, almost 19, but I'm already interested in starting to use some anti-aging products mostly as a preventative measure. I already use moisturizer every day and the Philosophy Hope in a jar for eyes which I really like. Are there any other products you would recommend  that I could add on to my regimen to help prevent aging? Btw my skin is oily and sometimes sensitive.

JUVERDERM FILLER - ANY VIEWS?
So, the inherited caves beneath my eyes are more noticeable now I got rid of a lot of the darkness, and the husband thinks Juverderm fillers might be the answer. He even offered to buy them for me for Christmas. He thinks I'm spending to much on serums and creams and  figures fillers could work out less expensive ...   Frankly I'm kind of scared of the idea, since I've never had botox even, and when my ankle broke in two places in the summer, they wanted to stick a metal pin in it, but I wouldn't let them, as I'm afraid of being operated on ...   Please share any thoughts/experiences with me.   I'm definitely struggling to get used to the fact that I don't really look like me anymore, but fillers seems like such an extreme solution (even if they do cost less than the $1,500 a month I spend on skincare ...)   Thanks in advance for responding!

Time To Look Into Aging Products...Please Help
Hi everyone!   I'm nearing my 30's and while I take great care of my skin (began the past few years) I am interested in knowing your go to beauty products and routines that you use to prevent and reduce lines, wrinkles, etc.   I gave up the tanning beds 2 years and use sunblock now, moisturize morning and night, use homemade masks about once a month, etc. I'm noticing those pesky crows feet making themselves at home and my skin is just not as firm as it once was.   My goal is to take action now so as I age I will age gracefully! Thanks!

PUFFY EYES SOS!!!!!!!
Recently I have been sleeping SO BAD, and my eyes are SO PUFFY!  I even notice wrinkles that were non existent before!! I'm only 27.... 28 next month !! This FREAKS ME OUT TOTALLY..    So, I went to research and came up with a list by applying the filters "retinol" and "Puffiness".  If you used these before, please tell me which one works best!!!!!!!   My main thing is to get rid of puffy first, and I feel a product that targets specifically for this problem is good, but I really do need wrinkle care too.  I just don;t believe the things that promise multiple results, but if there's one for puffy AND wrinkle, i'm def. going for it!   Here's my list:   PTR Un-wrinkle eye PTR Laser free resurfacing eye serum Philosophy Mracle Worker Retinoid Eye Repair cream Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple concentrate eye serum & eye cream (I love this brand) FAB Eye duty triple remedy brighten depuff and smooth (this is the cheapest, if this one works for depuff, I prefer to try this) Dr Brandt glow - revitalizing retinol eye cream (only retinol, no depuff) Finally, OLE Henriksen Ultimate Lift (blue gel).  I tried before when my puffy is not that great and it worked, but now it is SO puffy so I don't know if it will work, and it only targets puffy but not lines..... )   If you used these before, PLEASEEEEEEEE tell me which one has GOOD RESULT! THANKS!!!!!!!!

Nervous about trying Dr. Brandt's crease release on acne prone sensitive skin.
Helllo, I am 30 and have forward lines starting and several different problem wrinkle areas I would like to target. However with very acne prone sensitive skin, even oil free serums have caused me to break out horribly. I can not leave the house currently as I am waiting on serious hip surgery. It's a long story but due to my disability have seen multiple specialists and surgeons and haven't been able to leave the house for two months.

Need some help on a skin care regimen
I am in need of some advice on a skin care regimen. I am 38 and have some fine lines around my eyes and a few lines on my forehead. I just started using Dr Gross, but am thinking I need something for the definite lines, rather than an anti aging regimen. I use the peels every evening, and follow with the anti aging serum and moisturizer. I really have not seen a difference, but have only been using it for 2 weeks, I have oily skin, prone to break outs, and could use some brightening and glow.

Needles No More Review
NOTE:  This item was gifted to me by Sephora.   Oh my, where to start?  I'm 54, so I obviously already use some anti-aging skin products. I currently use WrinkleResist Eye Cream, NutriPerfect Eye Serum, and Bio-Performance Corrective Serum, all by Shiseido, and FAB Ultra Repair Cream. I continued using these products while trying the Needles No More, which I applied twice a day, morning and night, before applying the above products.   So, some observations about Needles No More: It is lightweight, non-greasy and absorbs readily, but I didn't find it particularly moisturizing or hydrating. It has a pleasant minty scent (very similar to those puffy little after-dinner mints) and leaves a vaguely cooling sensation. I never felt any tightening, though, and never experienced any irritation or sensitivity, either.   Generally I was pleased with the treatment — there were real improvements especially around my eyes. I was pretty impressed until after two weeks of use,  I suddenly couldn't get anything out of the bottle anymore ! I thought, "Seriously? It's empty already?" I tried for several days to get it to come out again. Shook it, took the little pump top off. T he bottle is brown, so you can't easily see how much product is remaining, and y ou can't open the bottle because of the way it's molded, so it's not like you can just use something to get the contents out, either (sneaky!).  I had the bottle in its box on my counter, so that it was sort of half-in, sitting at an angle. For whatever reason,  that  seemed to make it work again! But that seriously annoyed me, because at this price point, there shouldn't be any packaging failures.    I'm lucky I kept it around for a bit. Can you imagine tossing it because you thought it was empty? Luckily it continued to work after that episode, so the bottle lasted a total of about 7-8 weeks, which is similar to most other treatments I've used.   Anyway, my overall impression is that Needles No More works. But no, it is  not  a miracle cure with results like botox. I think the fine lines around my eyes are definitely less noticeable as are some of my forehead lines. I have a rather deep line between my brows that is still visible. I think perhaps that the really "set in" furrows might be beyond the serum's range. I  can  say that they feel less deep when I touch them, but they have not disappeared.  I purchased a second bottle when Sephora gave out the $25 off a $50+ purchase around the holidays, and I have only recently opened that one, so I don't know if the bottle issue was a fluke or not. I think you'll like the results with the Needles No More, but it's not going to take 20 years off your skin. However, I think it's an effective product with better results than a lot of other serums I've used, and the price is in line with other products.   For those who question the validity of this review, I've included before and after pictures of me in all my bare-faced glory. "After" shots are 7 weeks after beginning and were taken in the morning after using NNM and regular routine.   Before: After (1):   After (2): The Angle:

Skincare routine for multiple concerns
I'm curious how BT'ers organize their routine to address multiple skincare concerns.  My biggest issues are skin dryness and acne so historically, my routine has been centered around those.  However, since I'm in my early 30's forehead and under eye wrinkles are really starting to bother me.  The forehead wrinkles are really my biggest issue because I look at other people my age and while I think I look good for my age overall, my forehead wrinkles seem more pronounces than other people.   I feel like I'd like to rotate in some products but since my routine is already pretty full I'm trying to figure out the best way to do so without overloading my skin with products or losing out on the benefits I'm already getting.  An easy swap would be to replace one of the products I use for moisture with something for anti-aging but I've found I need everything in my routine right now (at least until Summer) to keep skin dryness and tightness at bay.   So I'm curious, how do you ladies do it.  Do you rotate serums, cleansers, etc.   Current routine for reference:   AM:   Face: -Fresh Rose Floral Toner -Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum -Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet -Acne product (Aczone)   Eyes: -Lancome Genifique Yeux -Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream (Gift from Sephora)   PM:   Face: -Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel (with Clarisonic 2-3 times a week) -Fresh Rose Floral Toner -Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum -Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet -Acne product (rotate between Differin Gel & Azelax)   Eyes: -Lancome Genifique Yeux -Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream (Gift from Sephora)   I also use GlamGlow ThirstyMud for moisture as needed and the GlamGlow mask for acne for a spot treatment.

I am in love with the FRESH products I have tried. I use the soy face cleanser and the black tea instant perfecting mask. I want to buy a good eye cream as this is my major concern. I am only 30 and stay out of the sun, BUT I have very delicate under eye area, which is sagging, bagging   and wrinkling. I know it is genetic as all of my older relatives have serve under eye bags. Anyway, I want to take care of this area and prolong this for as long as possible. Fresh has so many eye creams.

Expired product? Dr. Dennis Gross feruic +retinol solution
Hello, I purchased the 1 oz Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution at Sephora in-store. It was my 3rd time purchasing this product, but my first time doing it at Sephora. The other times I got it through a local spa.   When I got home, I noticed it looked very different from my other purchases- instead of being clear, it has orange globules floating in it. I wonder if it's expired? It was on sale, so it's possible it is really old.   I emailed Dr. Dennis Gross' company to see if they could tell if it was expired- I gave them the code on the bottom of the bottle.   I'm afraid to actually use it. I've attached photos of the state of the item. I just purchased it new today, and I haven't opened it yet, I wanted to contact you to see if you had any information for me.   I've attached some photos. Thank you! Claire
