moisturizers or anti wrinkle cream?? need help

Good evening
I need some help and I was hoping you ladies can!
I am not sure what I am looking for when it comes to moisturizers or if I need some sort of pre- anti wrinkle cream of some kind? I tried a few but they literally burn my skin, I applied it around the eyes as directed and ended looking like a raccoon I am 27 years old and my skin is very sensitive and soft, it does feel like baby's skin (my gf's love touching it!) and I never wear make up.
Any advise? Thanks!!

Maria

Re: moisturizers or anti wrinkle cream?? need help

My skin is fairly sensitive, too. I'm almost embarassed to admit this...but I use "farm" creams designed for milking-cows' udders. It absorbs into my skin very nicely, but when I found it didn't irritate my face, I now reserve it solely for my face. I was able to buy it at a Farm/Feed Store, but it closed down. Before it closed I bought their last 4 jars of 10oz Bova Cream.

The California airport made me throw away my 2nd jar that had only a few oz in it, even though Atlanta allowed me to take it on the plane from GA to CA...I'm now almost finished with my 3rd jar and I have only ONE left in the cupboard. When I am about halfway through it, I will order more.
This cream absorbs without leaving a greasy film, even on your hands. For my body, I use another 'farm' product called "Nothing Like It" by Cut-Heal. This one absorbs very nicely, is GREAT on feet and elbows and doesn't leave you feeling greasy, but if you get your skin wet...it will feel slick.

The below website sells the 10oz jars so I'll probably buy it there, unless I can convince my local Tractor Supply to carry it.

Re: moisturizers or anti wrinkle cream?? need help

At your age, you definately dont need 'anti-wrinkle' creams, and, i any case, they are probably a waste of money. Most of these creams do nothing like what they say they do - the only difference between a cheap and an expensive face cream is how it feels on your skin (backed up by research).

I use a light vitamin E cream from the 'Body Shop'. I dont know if you have that brand in the States, but I'm sure they will have something similar.

Re: moisturizers or anti wrinkle cream?? need help

There are quite a lot of organic brands out there that should be quite good for sensitive skin (esp those that colour & fragrance free). It's also important to look for one which contains a reasonably high SPF (or get a separate cream!). Skin damage from the sun is one of the main causes of ageing (age spots and wrinkles) on the face. Even if you don't live somewhere sunny, so long as it's light enough to see there's enough sun to cause damage! Sorry - that sounds a bit preachy but I reckon that prevention is better than cure when it comes to skincare

Eucerin is a very good basic product that is excellent for sensitive skin. You can buy it in most drug stores.

Re: moisturizers or anti wrinkle cream?? need help

I have read a few reviews on Bova Cream and I am going to give it a shot!
I am very sorry they confiscated your jar of goodness
I didn't know that anti wrinkle creams are just a fluke! my friend who sells avon is the one who recommended an anti-wrinkle cream.. and it was a disaster, maybe she should find another job LOL thanks Allie
I do drink lots of water and I am a veggie freak so all good there, I do break out when auntie flow is about to pay me a vist haha, too much information huh?
I read that Bova Cream has a good dose of SPF woo!!
What's your opinion on cleansing masks? you know the stuff you put on your face and it hardens after 10-15 minutes?

Thank you SO much for your helping!!!

Oh really? wow!! I am actually trying to stay away from bad carbs and sugars but if I happen to indulge I will keep that in mind, how come you can indulge safely while on your period??
That is very interesting, are you like the Dr. Phil of the forum? LOL
Thanks again!

Cleansing masks aren't good for sensitive skin, more for oilier skin (since they soak up the oil). Better to use a mask that doesn't absorb and wash it away. You can look for these ingredients/masks: Aloe vera, cucumber, collagen mask (if you are worried about wrinkles), chamomile (look for a product that is specifically for sensitive skin). Look for a professional product in a salon and go for a facial to see what they recommend you use and tell them what is your main concern(s). It's really worth it. An eye cream is good as well if you are worried about wrinkles under the eye, under eye circles, etc. If you are not satisfied with a product then simply return it. Good luck!

I would go to a professional if your skin is that sensitive so that your not trying and hurting your skin worse.
