I use to use Obagi which is sold at spas and it is very expensive. It has the retin A in it. Looking for something a little less money! Was looking at the ROC brand because it does contain the Retin A. Any other suggestions?????

Obagi is good.  I think ROC will dissapoint you.  If you use an RX retin A, are you just looking for good moisture etc to add?  I think Korres is really good, their wild rose line would suit your skin if you are no longer getting an RX for retin-a, it's a natural retinoid.

I know some people have luck ordering retin-a overseas

Have you heard of Nerium AD?  It is awesome and works.  It does not contain Retinol A but is now being endorsed by Professional Plastic Surgeons.  It is not cheap initially but the company offers you a 30 day money back guarantee to start the product and then what is amazing is once you see results and recommend 3 people that order the product you get yours for only 9.95 per month.  For more information on Nerium AD go to   This is my own private website and the little information it asks for in the beginning will only be visible to ME - not to the company.  Take a look, there is so much to benefit by this product.

Rodan and Fields plus you get a 60 days to get your money back if it doesn't work, no loss!!  I've used many different products and their products make my skin feel and look amazing compared to others.  After one week of using it I had to join their business because I knew I would always use it, plus it sells itself.  If you have anyquestions feel free to email me

Ok-first buy retin-a gel on eBay. You can get it very cheap and you only need to use it every other night. Also you can get straight sacilyc acid from eBay. Get the 35% and put that on clean skin for two minutes once a week. Favorite eye creams are Peter Thomas Roth for 25.00 or the ROC for 20. My new love to make eyes look fantastic is Burt's Bees Ageless Serum. put a couple of dots of it on any area where you have wrinkles. It is awesome. For day and night moisture get yourself Olay Regeneriste. You can get awesome deals on eBay, amazon and At night you can put the moisturizer on over the retin a 15 minutes after you apply it. If you make the base of your skin look healthy by slugging off the dead layers with the acid TX and retin a. You will make huge progress.
