Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream. The science is total hooey, but the creams work. My skin looks much better when I’m using them and deteriorates rapidly when I’m not.

@claireos:  I would never spend $100 on any facial product. Expensive does not mean it’s better for your skin. There are great products at all price points.

These products are amazing and not that expensive.

I like the Dior Capture Totale line. Their serum cost me $200 but they have less expensive products in the line. The serum was amazing. It was the only thing that saved my skin when I was walking to work and back every day in the cold Canadian winter.

I probably won’t buy it this year since I’m getting rides to work, but that line is very good. I think it is for older skin so perfect for your mom, but that serum worked on me and I was 25 or 26 at the time.

@claireos:  Retinol-A is my miracle. I use it daily and it is worth every penny. It has improved my skin tone, clarity and eliminates all past blemish scars while preventing breakouts. Plus it prevents wrinkles, bonus!

For eye care I switch off between Ole Henriksen Visual Truth Eye Creme ($45.00) and Philosophy Eye Hope ($49.00)…both are amazing and I use as preventative measures. Neither of these are greasy. I have heard great things about StriVectin SD Eye Concentrate ($60ish) as well.

You could also look into getting her an at home peel which is great for toning up the skin and improve the overall appearance. I use Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel ($49.50) every other week and I love how soft and clear my skin looks after using.

Boscia oil free nightly hydration and Fresh soy face serum. Not super pricey, but I love them.

Ah, this doesn’t apply to what you’ve said! What I love is Josie Maran Argan Oil. It absorbs right away though, so maybe she would like it after all.

Anything from Caudalie is fab.

@claireos:  Love the facial peel. It tingles but nothing painful certainly. The instructions say to leave it on for 10 minutes (I do 20). After the first five minutes or so the tingling goes away and it just feels bubbly-ish like you know something is working but again not painful or uncomfortable.

It is very gentle. It doesn’t over dry and my skin is fresh, smooth and incredibly soft right after and this lasts for about a week. I actually don’t get facials anymore (they are too harsh for me) and use the peel instead.

And every woman should use eye cream….our eyes age us more than anything else. I have been using it since I was 24, call me a believer. It is easier to prevent than to correct and crows feet be damned! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lancome.  My mom (she started using it when she’s young and her skin is really good and she looks younger than her age) introduced it to me when I was 18 and I have been using their products since.  I’m 40 years old and many people still think that I’m late 20 or early 30!

I also love Ole Henriksen! I started with the Three Little Wonders kit but I think the 7 piece kit would make a wonderful gift. If I was splurging for myself, I would probably buy a big bottle of the OH truth serum. It’s my favorite of all the products I’ve tried from the line.
