    Default ISO neck cream

    Help! I'm turning 50 in the fall and have noticed over the past year that my neck looks awful (it may have been looking awful before but I hadn't noticed because the lighting in the bathrooms at work is terrible and I was usually only at home in the dark.) Now I'm home all day and I can see the wrinkles and loose skin. I don't have dark spots. I have been using my same face cream on my neck- my face actually looks young and right before the pandemic I was actually carded 3 times in 6 months. But my face routine apparently isn't doing enough for my neck and chest. I tried the Strivectin neck cream when it was on sale at Costco, and after 1 week, I had a horrible itchy rash on my neck so I returned it. I generally have sensitive skin and hate lingering fragrances. I'd prefer not to spend over $75 on it unless it really will be the miracle cream. Any suggestions??

    I have to say, I work with ladies in their 80s and 90s, and the ones with the beautiful skin, they show me their cream, it's either Oil of Olay (the old school one) or Ponds. Another lady used to make a vat of cream made of the pink baby lotion, vitamin E cream and Vaseline, she would mix it in a bowl and put in a container, her skin was amazing and she was 92, said she had been doing that for most of her life. They also said, they stayed out of the sun, wore big hats when gardening and gloves.

    When I was in nursing school I had a patient with the most amazing skin. She had to have been over 90 and was also black. I asked her what she used and she said she slathered Vaseline on her entire body every day!!!

    I use It Cosmetics Confidence in a cleanser to wash in the morning, followed by hyaluronic acid serum (I use Tree of Life brand from Amazon) and It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream (and the same brand/type of eye cream). I will probably switch to the Elta MD cream for daytime so I have the sunscreen (otherwise I use powder sunscreen).
    At night I wash with Julep Love Your Bare Face Oil, followed by retinol serum (Tree of Life) and the same It Cosmetics cream and eye cream.

    My face skin has never looked better. Since starting the Julep cleansing oil, I don't ever get the under-surface cystic acne I used to get. But my neck... Ugh!!

    Staying out of the sun is the key.
