Instant wrinkle/pore cream

What product has blurred large pores and the 11 lines between the eyebrows AND how did you go about applying it to your skin. I have literally tried EVERY BRAND/PRODUCT FROM THE LOCAL DRUG STORE ALL THE WAY UP TO HIGH END and nothing …… I don’t know if it’s the way I’m applying the product to my face and/or I have yet to come across the FILLER IN A BOTTLE. I hate needles but after the pandemic A HORRIBLE BREAK UP and raising a 3 year old little girl by myself THE STRESS IS REAL.

Sounds like it's a real tough time for you, and then the pandemic on top of it. Sending you a virtual hug. I think a "filler in a bottle" doesn't exist. Skincare can't work instantly either - it takes at least 6 weeks to notice any results, but it takes months to get a real difference. In terms of products, I'd say you need a serum with a retinoid, there are many options with different price points: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/serums?ingredient_groups_by_name=Retinoid&sortBy=Anti-Aging&sortBy=Irritancy. I recommend starting slowly: applying it every other night before a moisturizer, and moving to every night in a couple of weeks - this will help to avoid irritation. And most important part of anti-aging skincare is a daily sunscreen - it does make a huge difference for the speed of skin aging. Still, topical skincare can only do so much, and it will not be able to undo deeper lines that are already there, and this is where botox might be the only truly effective choice.

This may not be the information/opinion you wanted, but I was where you were at a few years ago. I literally calculated how much I’d spent on all the skincare products to get that “filler in a bottle” effect and realized it was significantly more than botox. So, I got Botox. Every six months, I spend about 500 to smooth the wrinkles between my eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and the very intense crows feet. My face doesn’t look frozen and it took literally a decade off my almost 40 face. I also use SkinCeuticals hyaluralic acid (can never spell that right) religiously.

Oh, also, Dr. Dennis Gross’ alpha beta peel - both the one in the little packets and the clinical grade variety that comes in two bottles. It’s absolutely not cheap, but it is worth it. Hugs.

My recommendation... Airpods or head phones of some sort... your favorite chill music... a babysitter for a couple of hours, and a Botox appt. I didn't like the idea either... I wear my lines like badges of honor... and I'm proud of them. But every once in a while we just need that little confidence boost. I went and got my first injections last July... I had 1 line that bothered me... that didn't go away... and it did take a couple of days for me to notice things, and then there was a day that I think I just looked surprised all day... and I literally just laughed my butt off every single time I saw myself in a mirror or even thought about it... I still do actually. But, now I at least know that the skincare products at least when it comes to lines and wrinkles... man, they don't even hold a candle. If you just need it for yourself, then you just need it. It's worth it, just for the knowledge alone.

I am an aesthetician for over 30+ years and all I can say Is that there is no miracle Products that fills wrinkles!! A good routine of gentle exfoliation with enzymes, gentle cleansing, a regular application of moisturizing Serums and creams (morning and night time) will benefit your skin. It won’t happen overnight but in the long term it will bring results. We often forget that every small or larger lines appearing on our skin is the “witness” of our journey on this planet… and we can value that great life experience by looking at ourself with sympathy.
