I Need Quality Skin Care Products

I have left both my youth and the humidity of Hawaii behind. These days my skin feels one size to small. Not only that. I have spots around my eyes that pretty much look and feel like alligator skin. I need some decent skin care products. Does anybody have anything in mind?

I have been looking at cosmeceuticals, or cosmetics with active pharmaceutical ingredients.  One  cosmeceutical company that caught my eye was Dermajuv because they have done laboratory studies to gauge the success of their products, and because they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.  Try the product for 30 days and if it doesn’t work, return it for a refund.

I started looking at cosmeceuticals with a great deal of skepticism.  Medical cosmetics.  Was that just a fancy claim, or is there some weight behind the term?  According to Wikipedia, the name has validity and is a marketing ploy — it is up to the consumer to judge the companies that lay claim to the word.

Since Dermajuv offers a 30 day money back guarantee, I know they believe in their products.  Moreover, Dermajuv is willing to describe and explain their product ingredients in detail.  In fact, they have dedicated an entire section of their website solely for the purpose of showcasing their cosmeceuticals.  You can even view PDFs of the clinical study results.

From the Dermajuv website:

Is Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3) an effective anti wrinkle product?
Yes. In clinical studies, Matrixyl was shown to:
increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 117%
increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 327%
increase hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 267%
Deep wrinkles were reduced by half. Smaller wrinkles and fine lines sometimes faded completely away. And what’s even better, every participant in the study showed noticeable improvement within two weeks. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin.


  1. Hrm, I’m always on the look out for products that prevent my skin from drying up and falling off.

    Right now I’m using Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Balm during the winter months (something lighter during the spring/summer/autumn), and it is AMAZING stuff. I like most Vichy products, but this one is a miracle cream. Love it!

    1. Nessa — I was dreaming of my skin at 14. I never had a blemish until I was 30 — and now I have them all the time. What’s up with that?

  2. Back in the day when I had a groovy job that came with a decent paycheck I was a big fan of Thalgo skin care products…they’re out of my price range for now…but they definitely made a difference in the appearance of my skin.
    Now it’s drugstore lotions and potions for this old farmgirl…ahhh the good old days.

  3. I used Mary Kay in the early 1990’s, and then spent 10 years buying BeautiControl skin care products. I went back to MK for a few years but still had trouble with dry patches near my mouth and nose.
    My Chinese friend has terrific skin. Guess what she uses? Oil of Olay!! So I bought some and I’ve had terrific luck with my skin ever since. If you want to know more, e-mail me.
