    All wrinkle creams are a scam Most of these wrinkle creams actually stretch the skin with plumpers… making it appear firmer, however also stretching the wrinkle. This in the long run actually ages you. The dimethicones, silicones, parebens, perfumes etc etc etc… which are in most EVERY major anti-aging cream you can find in a department store… ALSO AGE YOU! lol If you want great skin forever… try eating SUPER FOODS, and not abusing your body with processed foods, and poisonous creams
