Considering a Wrinkle Cream?

We recently discussed reviews.com’s quest to find the very best in wrinkle creams, and the top three, but for those of you looking for something more or different, here are some additional findings:

Other Wrinkle Creams to Consider

Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Night and Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Creme. Packaging aside (more pots — we feel like a broken record) we liked both of these anti-wrinkle creams well enough. Un-Wrinkle has the most retinol (listed 12th) as well as some glycolic acid, but you’ll be shelling out over $100 for 1 oz of product that doesn’t have any coveted hyaluronate. Its counterpart, the Cellular Creme, is a more affordable $85 for 1.7 oz, but unsurprisingly its retinoid is much lower in the ingredients list and its hyaluronate is nearly last.

Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Night ($80). It contains our three wishlist ingredients (although it has the least retinol of all our top picks) and is comparable in size and price to Dr. Dennis Gross, but the Ultimate Miracle Worker had some downsides. Denatured alcohol as one of the first ingredients which is ultra-drying in the bad way, plus you have to stir little “pearls” into the cream to “activate” it when you first open it — so gimmicky!

“Retinol is a truly effective wrinkle reduction treatment. It is much better to have a product with retinol than without it.” Dr. Diane Ford, MDDSF Cosmetic and Medical Dermatology

Holiday Treats

If you’re like me, this time of year is a whirlwind of tempting treats that will head straight to your thighs. I surely can’t afford any extra padding on my gams, and yet, I have such a sweet tooth for cookies and sweets during the holidays.
