Anyone used hormone creams on the face?

I'm using an oestrogen cream, Estriol, on my face and neck after researching on the net. It's got to be bought online as not approved by the FDA here.
It's faded my age spot in less than 2 weeks, so quite pleased so far....

Does that stuff work on wrinkles?!
I had the same thought a few months ago.....

I tried something similar for heavy periods and put on half a stone in a month.

Oooh. Does it make you look younger?
Given that it's meant to be used ahem down stairs, is it safe to use on the face?

Very interested in more information. grin (Getting older and more prune like daily!).

There are 3 different kinds of estrogens apparently. Estriol is the weakest and the one you get lots of during pregnancy.
It's not approved by FDA here, I got mine on eBay as it has to be imported.

I just started this yesterday funny enough - really hope it works.

Marilyn monroe used to use a hormone cream on her face and she developed light peach hair over her face, i don't know how safe it is if its not approved though.

It's not approved here but it is in the US...
I'm not convinced yet but the result on my age spot is quite amazing. Wish I could post photos on here, I have before and afters.
