It's not a very big tube for £16 is it? How much should I be using each time and how long is the tube supposed to last?

themoon66 Wed 29-Aug-07 13:57:33

I'm on my third tube. I find they last almost exactly 4 weeks.

zippitippitoes Wed 29-Aug-07 13:59:12

mine lasts about 8 weeks..I use about a peasworth

Celery Wed 29-Aug-07 14:00:51

Thanks, and that's using it twice a day?

Celery Wed 29-Aug-07 14:01:14

And is it worth it? grin

DarrellRivers Wed 29-Aug-07 14:03:22

no not worth it

Tutter Wed 29-Aug-07 14:09:13

will let you know, have just got some (online offer atm)

zippitippitoes Wed 29-Aug-07 14:11:19

i only use it once

scattyspice Wed 29-Aug-07 14:21:15

Once a day (am) and I'd say worth it.

themoon66 Wed 29-Aug-07 14:22:55

I use it twice a day... morning and night. And I do think it has made a big difference to the fine lines between my eyebrows and undereyes.

I use it twice a day and I would say that it is probably one of the best beauty buys...

My considerable crows feet have disappeared and the deep frown lines are fading. smilesmilesmile

i use it twice a day and am still undecided. the woman in boots told me to use a moisturiser on top of it too

claricebeansmum Wed 29-Aug-07 14:29:58

I just use it as a plolyfilla and then moisturise with my regular moisturiser. You only need a little bit as it is quite greasy and a little goes a long way.

zippitippitoes Wed 29-Aug-07 14:31:12

ooh the moon66 do you put it under eyes i was told not to

the place where i need it most

claricebeansmum Wed 29-Aug-07 14:33:14

Under eyes
Sides of eyes

Where the wrinkles are!

zippitippitoes Wed 29-Aug-07 14:34:13

but they say don't put it there because the skin is too thin!

claricebeansmum Wed 29-Aug-07 14:35:10

Skin is too thin???? shock

What will happen to me?

zippitippitoes Wed 29-Aug-07 14:36:34

no idea i just understood it was very bad..because it is strong stuff..

claricebeansmum Wed 29-Aug-07 14:37:45

But isn't that the point.
I have crows feet
It is polyfilla
They go away
I am happy.
Bugger. sad

i know this is not on the pregnancy thread so maybe not important but just wanted to say that i think a cream like this has some retinol in it which is vit A and therefore not to be used in pregnancyf
