Zits and Wrinkles...why should I have to deal with both?

I was one of those kids in high school who had crystal clear skin. An occasionally monthly blemish might...MIGHT pop-up but in general I didn't worry about it. My skin care regime amounted to shampoo that fell across my face when I rinsed out my hair.

About a year ago at the age of 26 my skin finally decided to go through puberty. I tried washing my face but it never seemed to make a difference in fact it just dried out my skin so it was zitty and flaky. HOT! So I gave up and decided blackheads just made me look youthful.

About 3 months ago that all changed. Enough is enough. This summer my face turned into an oil slick. I had to do daily pimple monitoring and seeing as how I can not leave well enough alone and I turned even the slightest blemish into a giant festering wound.

Enter the best products ever...no its not proactive. I've always been a fan of Neutrogena especially since none of their products have ever made me break out in hives (quite feat in my case). So I invested in their Oil-free Stress Control Acne system.

  • Power Clear Scrub $8.95
  • Toner $7.49
  • 3 in 1 hydrating Acne Treatment $7.99
Yes I know I sound like a commercial but this stuff is inexpensive and magically wonderful. So if you are in the market for a new product buy it. If it isn't successful and they take it off the market I just might die.

All this paying attention to my skin has made me notice something I really do not enjoy and that is the aging process. I have teeny tiny lines around my eyes. Not good. I really wouldn't have gone out of my way to do anything about it but when I went to buy my slut red lipstick I got an anti-wrinkle sample in my free gift. Lancôme 'High Résolution Collaser-5X™' Intense Collagen Anti-Wrinkle Serum. Yeah I know a bit drastic for my case but seeing as I have not hooked a man it seems best to keep this face working its magic. Oh and it works. Anyways I'm almost out so I decide to go look it up online to see how much it will cost to refill my supply.

$65.00 for 1 oz. 1 oz!

Is this crap is made from princess Diana's personally aborted fetuses? I have no clue but I simply cant spend $65 dollars on a ketchup packet's worth of glorified lotion. Maybe Ill change my mind when I'm 30.

So I need suggestions. Or am I the only 27 year old freaking out over the price of wrinkle cream?

    This might be worth a try: Merlot Grape Seed Eye Cream http://www.walgreens.com/beauty/product.jsp?CATID=100735&navAction=jump&navCount=2&skuid=sku391368&id=prod391367
    I like this stuff -- for my dark circles and I think helps with general skin around the eye issues- I haven't used it in awhile- but it was fantastic!
    Vita-K Solution Professional Dark Circles http://www.walgreens.com/beauty/product.jsp?CATID=100735&navAction=jump&navCount=4&skuid=sku3446697&id=prod3447854#
    This also looks interesting- Yes To Carrots Eye Contour Cream, Paraben Free http://www.walgreens.com/beauty/product.jsp?CATID=100735&navAction=jump&navCount=5&skuid=sku2695693&id=prod2696859
    And all are under $20. soo that's a little more wallet friendly to experiment with differnt products.
    I tend to just use PONDS- the old lady, cheap cold cream and moisturizer - but this might not be good if you are really sensititve to products. top
