Botox Busters? Study shows wrinkle creams don't work.

 From Reuters: Study; Wrinkle creams don't work.

MMLUpcomingOlay.jpgLuxury-price products don't work any better than drugstore brands, according to the study by Consumer Reports magazine, which ranked Olay Regenerist, priced at about $19, as the most effective in reducing wrinkles.

But none of these products made a significant difference in the skin's appearance.

As a medspa website a reference to prescription wrinkle creams like tretinoin would be appropriate. If you want proven efficacy at reducing wrinkles and improving the skin then look at Obagi Sysytem which incorporates prescription ingrediants tretinoin and hydroquinone. The system is proven to work at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, to increase dermal density, correct photodamage, etc. Reference April 2006 Cosmetic Dermatology (vol 19 no 4) for the peer reviewed reprint in a 301 patient clinical trial.

Sounds like you work for Obagi. Although, I agree with you.

There are many good cosmeceutical companies out there - SkinCeuticals, LaRoche Posay, SkinMedica, etc. It's all about looking for the SCIENCE - medical, peer-reviewed science - - not falling for the marketing hype that most companies spew at you. Ask for the real deal ON paper!

Has anyone tried the Rodan & Fields skin care products? Did you pay the required $1,000 buy in of products just to sell their products/become a consultant? I don't agree with the whole buy in process, but would like to know your thoughts.
