Ok... I just bought Dream Cream  and Vitamin A and hyaluronic Acid Gel.. I have been using them all at night and the Dream Cream both day and night. But it just isn't enough for my skin...
I used to use Shea Mousses.. It seemed to do the trick.. I am assuming it is discontinued?
Can't find it to order it.. So what can I use that is similar?

Thanks for any info you can give me..

May I ask how old you are? Is your skin very dry?

Please send me the ingredient lists for those two products. Did they help you while you were using them?

Not good. What made you decide to use these products?  Very few good ingredients, mostly indifferent or even bad.

I worked at a Salon.. A friend of mine gave me a facial and I liked the feel of my skin afterwards so I started using it... I have used this brand off and on  since 2000. Now that I am getting older I need something designed for older skin... So are there a lot of fillers in these products? That make them bad. I see a lot of oil listed

It is not a matter of fillers. Good actives may need a good serum or cream for them to work better. But when I look at an ingredient list I can tell what is an active and what are pretty names (usually plants) to make the list "look" interesting.

If you are over 40, you need some actives and a bad product is a wasted opportunity. You probably need vitamin A (retinyl acetate), epidermal growth factor, antioxidants, and more. If you use a night cream that contains oils and maybe a bit of vitamin A, the product is not doing its job, whatever the very creative name on the label.

It is very easy to get a nice feeling after a facial: they use nice fragrances, some ascorbic acid and stuff like that and your skin feels good. That's the easy part. You need products that will improve your skin health and make it last for decades.
