I've been using Lulu's neck bomb which is great and smells lovely. But I am wondering if there is anything else on the market.

I have very sensitive skin and am 50. The Clinique under eye serum has caused me problems so I think a cream is probably best.

My neck is getting saggy and wrinkles, and annoyingly my cheeks have fallen too....getting old isn't great :0(

Any thoughts folks?

yep, that's 50 years of gravity for you. Use sunscreen, don't smoke, eat properly.

smile - takes years off.

Agree with special. Lots of water too. Increase intake of fruit and veg if you haven't already. DH had a perforated stomach ulcer this summer and in order to improve his diet and to get him to have more fruit and veg I got a Nutribullet to make smoothies. I use it too now and may be my imagination but feel and look better with the extra fresh veg (eg: kale, banana, frozen berries, almond milk and chia seeds). This is coming from a committed anti-faddy foods woman...I still like biscuits and the odd sausage!
Oh, and if you have £ to spare and want to stop short of the cosmetic surgery route, Retin A is great if used properly. I have sensitive skin and now only use very plain, unscented, inexpensive moisturiser (Cetaphil) under my factor 50 sunscreen.

I should add that it is either surgery (for that ridiculous 'my head doesn't match my hands' hollywood look) or there is some evidence that retinols make a tiny difference. Don't expect anyone else to notice.

getting older is a lot better than the alternative.
