I guess that makes more sense. I heard Sandra Bullock uses it, I guess she probably uses it as a temp fix as well. Thanks for the input.

I was watching Oprah the other day and this lady looked fabulous! Her skin was so smooth and she said that she had been using a vaginal dryness cream on her face for over twenty years and it has left her skin looking amazing!!! Random huh?

I would read the label very carefully before putting a medication like Preparation H anywhere near my eyes.

I have heard that Preparation H is especially effective at reducing the inflammation, redness, and pain of zits. Also, regular Visine can be use to reduce the redness of zits. It does the same on your skin as it does in your eyes...gets the red out.

preparation H will help with puffyness around the eyes but it can also help with cracked heels (fissures really of any type)

It takes puffiness out of your skin, it's an anti-inflammitory. I wouldn't put it all over my face since it's the consistency of vaseline it will probably clog your pores.
I put it on for about 20min and wipe it off with a damp cloth, it really does work. Keep it in the fridge to give an extra kick in the mornings

I went to a focus group where they pay for your opinions and prep h has been used for models for early shoots to temporarily fix puffiness and bags under eyes but i never heard of it being used as any sort of long term benefit. If anyone here is fom the jersy or philly area and wants to make some easy cash just email me and i'll send the link to the focus groups. They had 1 yesterday that paid $50 just for 30 minutes but you had to smoke. I did one on headaches for $75 but it was 2 hours with 9 other women at a round table discussion.

Preparation H has been used to tighten up the under eye area for maybe 50 years or more. I remember my mother saying that when she was young women used it. I have never seen anything work better & instantly to smooth out the wrinkles under eyes. I don't think it does anything to diminish or eliminate them tho. I have been using it for many years.

I have heard that the prepration H tightens the skin on your face. I tried it, but could not tell any difference. I think my only hope is a face lift. I am 56 years old. Sherri at Tallpines83

I don't know about the restof the face, but it does seem to tighten the undereye area. At least for me. It's the only thing I've found that hides crowsfeet.

I know someone that tried it for wrinkles,it worked as far as making her skin a little more taught, however, the only real cure it surgical. Tip, stay out of the sun,,,trust me! (I was a sun worshiper!)

Hi,
Women have been using this for years. Two months ago the actor/singer Bobby Brown, Mr. Whitney Houston, purchased some to use under his eyes on "Being Bobby Brown." Talk about reality shows, my man was definitely keepin' it real.
