Are there any cheap face creams that work? I'm a 30 year old who would rather not spend more than $20. I'm starting to notice sharing and it frightens me. TIA.
What's "sharing" ?
Are you sharing your face OP, is the other guy the one that is running it down.
No lotion or potion can do what a clean healthy diet can.
Lol it was supposed to be scaring. I'm awful at typing on my phone.
Creams don't help scars.
Yes, you've got scars on your face, but they're not that bad. And if you'd leave yourself alone, you wouldn't have more than you've already awarded yourself
Oh honey, no cream - even the fancy ones - will fix that mess.
And by the by, honey, it's "scarring". "Scaring" is what you're doing when you jump out in a mask and scream BOO at someone.
Scarring = the presence of scars
Scaring = the act of causing a scare
(And of course you can't fix scars with a cream, are you retarded? You can get microdermabrasion, or perhaps some laser treatments. Creams are for dry skin and shallow wrinkles, not scars.)
What are you getting scarring from? Personally, I've had great luck with Neutrogena Visibly Bright cleanser and Neutrogena Healthy Skin face lotion (multi-vitamin w/alpha-hydroxy and SPF15).
Both are $10-$15 each.
My pussy stinks. Any suggestions for ME?
OP, take a look at "Allure" magazines Best of Beauty series. They have editor and reader picks for the best products.
I've linked to the first page of their "Top 8 anti-aging products under $20" which may help you out. I don't know if they specifically help with scarring.
Personally, since Lancome and L'oreal are the same manufacturer, I use L'oreal skin products.
I've used Clinique products for 30+ years and I look 10 years younger than my age, 60. I really do.
Clinique is expensive but it works if you use it twice daily. Begin with just their basic Clarifying Lotion and Moisturizing Lotion which together will cost about $65 but will last for 2 months or so.
R16 you did not link to anything.
LMAO...Obama does sarcasm so, so well. Poor Shitt.
R12 That's not even a face cream, R16 no link
Prestige Coffret: Serums by Sisley-Paris.
I wouldn't use the crap, but it's what I give the help during the holidays.
I like scars. Acne, dueling, whatever. I like 'em.
Thanks for the links and recommendations~ I'm 33 and noticing more fine lines around my eyes than ever. SUCKS!!!
If guys would just do a light skin abbrasion before each shave, they would never wrinkle. You need to use a loofah, soap and water. Start out gently and increase the intensity of your scrub untill you are pretty much immune to any discomfort. This will provide the the type of increased circulation within you face to keep wrinkles, lines and creases from developing on your face. This works and you'll save a ton of money over a lifetime.
Yes, you will experience some redness if you're doing this right, but in a very short time, you will see the benefits of the additional collegen development along with matchless muscle tone. You can use a moistureriser, but it won't make much difference since your facial skin will be so healthy from this procedure.
Olay Beauty Fluid in the pink plastic bottle.
I've used it for decades and it really has worked to keep my facial skin younger.
People often think I'm 12 or 14 years younger than I am. (not joking and no need to joke!)
I'm 65 and have almost zero wrinkles. I had zero wrinkles until one year ago when two lines developed from corners of my lips downward.
And I was a sun worshiper.
Slather it on generously every night before bed.
And during the winter, you can apply an extra coating during the day.
R11, yes, Olay Beauty Fluid in the pink plastic bottle works really well!
Do not buy the imitation CVS kind.
You can often get 20% or 25% off at cvs.com on the Olay Beauty Fluid.
Just wait to buy it until the cvs.com website advertises 20 or 25 percent off everything at the website.
It's not expensive anyway.
I use the really cheap stuff - Nivea for Men Protective Lotion, with SPF 15. About $5 a tube.
I like the consistency - not too thick and oily, but not too watery. Absorbs pretty well into the skin. A lot of (gay) men over-moisturize and end up with a "shiny" look.
I used to use Oil of Olay, but it tends to be on the more watery side.
I'm not going to claim I look remarkably younger than my age (I'm 31 in any case), but I'm happy with how my skin looks and feels. Anyway, the sense I get is that there's no "miracle" cream; some are better than others, but it's more about staying out of the sun (and using something with SPF), drinking plenty of water, not smoking, getting sleep, etc. than it is about the specific brand of moisturizer you use (though you should moisturize).
Olay Beauty Fluid in the pink plastic bottle with black cap is not 'watery' at all, R38.
I'm surprised by the Oil of Olay mentions, I've never tried that stuff even though it's been around forever.
What is a good eye cream?
Question for the Olay people--do you use Olay eye cream or do you just slather the beauty cream on your eyes too?
Guys exfoliate every day when they shave.
Asked my dermatologist for a good OTC product to get rid of under eye bags. He said "don't waste your money. None of them work." And, no, he didn't suggest one of his office procedures.
Do the "best" products recommended by magazines have any relation to the amount of ad space manufacturers buy?
I remember a comparison test with Oil of Olay and all the high-priced face creams and lotions. Oil of Olay outperformed them all. And this was a while ago.

I think that was the Olay Regenerist line.
I had a facial at an Aveda spa and the technician recommended I make a mask of baking soda and water (make a paste) once a week, and every other day clean my face with olive oil and a little baking soda. The olive oil molecules are too big to get into my pores and the baking soda acts as an exfoliant. I use Khiel's Facial Fuel with SPF15 on my face and neck as a moisturizer every day.
The only Olay to use is Olay Beauty Fluid in the pink plastic bottle with black cap!!
Forget the other Olay facial creams.
I've been using Oil of Olay regenerist cream. I can't use it on my face because it plugs up every pore. Good on the eyes and neck though.
I'm back to using the plain, unscented Oil of Olay on my face.
R41, I'm the one who has used Olay Beauty Fluid in the pink plastic bottle for decades.
I do slather it on under my eyes and it works beautiflly.
A lighter eye cream which is very good is L'Oreal Eye Defense Dermo Expertise. Be sure to get the pink cream, and NOT the white thicker cream.
PAPAYA and Pineapple...The Fruit! Cut the skins off and Save! Eat the fruit! Then wash face, then rub on pineapple (fruit side to face, duh) it burns like hell, and don't rub or get in your eyes! Then when you cannot take it anymore rinse it off! Then place Papaya skins all over your face, lie down and rest for 20 mins. Your skin will be brand new...after you wash it all off of course.
What a dumb bunch of Mo asswipes. These goos and and oils don't do a damn thing but make the manufacturer rich. You're all just a bunch of gay male twats. You deserve to be of limited means.
Safflower Oil from the grocery store. Works as well as anything else.
I really like L'Oreal Skin Genesis Night Lotion and the Daywear Plus SPF15. I don't have any signs of skin aging yet.
Scarring from what? Do you mean wrinkles? If it's an actual scar then one thing does work and it's not really a face cream.
My Doc gave me a little tube called Dermatix for a scar on my forehead it's basically liquid silicone and you use just a tiny amount and it completely got rid of my scar and the redness
R53 doesn't it smell bad? Any Calendula cream I've ever bought smells like crap. I don't think I'd put it on my face.
"Just buy a subscription for Glamour or Mademoiselle. "
Mademoiselle ceased to exist after November 2001.
"The November 2001 magazine was the final issue. Some of the 93 employees and features moved over to Glamour, also published by Condé Nast. Spokeswoman Maurie Perl explained the reason was due to the worsening economic climate for magazines after the 9/11 attacks."
