I can't help but laugh, you are so right, though I'm afraid I'm guilty of loving cream. It's so stupid. And Lily, I agree with going to another planet. That's great.
 
I will share a funny story, hope you don't think I'm completely crazy. But I'm trying to have some humor about being nuts. I decided to my husbands dismay(due to the cost) to have laser treatments(Photo Facial) to be exact. Well it sure feels good when it stops hurting. I could tell a difference, I swear. Now I agree not anyone should feel it necessary to do any of this and we certainly shouldn't give this message to our young. I'd just like to slap whoever gave it to me.
 
The funny part. The doctor I saw for the treatments sold me some really expensive cream (DNA something like that) I've been addicted to cream all my life so I was an easy sale. I'm thinking of out patient care for my problem. This was a medical spa environment. He then left this place and went to another location joining a medical Doctor. It was not a spa and they really didn't sale retail products at that time. So during a conversation with him, he said, you can just go to the drug store and buy some cheap cream, I guess forgetting that he had sold me the other stuff. I should have said, well why did you sale me that expensive stuff which you said was so wonderful. I didn't. Why, cause I'm nuts.

What 22-year-old is making those commercials?  i don't have television, so i haven't seen them.  but, really, i can think of better things to get offended about.
 
there was  a cute comic in sunday's paper.  the wizard of id gives that old lady (his wife?) wrinkle cream.  she comes back later all mad, and he says, "oh, you mean you want ANTI- wrinkle cream!"

Well, it only offends my intelligence.  dabbing on anti-wrinkle cream on skin that has not a wrinkle to be found, makes me feel like these marketing geniuses think I'm an idiot. But I have to say, my all time favorite is those stretchy girdle things for your waist and thighs.....they get someone who is 98 pounds soaking wet modeling those things and prance around saying, look...no bulges! Hahaha! Sometimes I just want off of this planet. I wonder what Venus is like? They say the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us. (LoL)

Yes I agree that it as a little bit ridiculous. I don't think that anyone should feel pressured into using wrinkle creams. Aging is a natural process, and it's beautiful. I think that all of these products give young girls the wrong impression. There is so much out there telling them that they aren't good enough the way they are. I think that it gives them a lower self esteem.

Thank you, I am in my 40 somethings, and there is no pressure on me to use that stuff, because I wouldn't if I was paid to. I am always telling my daughter that this makeup stuff is what makes you look older to begin with. True?

Propaganda makes me sick...like how stupid do they think we are?  Any one with half a brain knows that someone in their '20's does NOT need wrinkle cream for heaven's sake!  Now use this special cream on someone in their '40-50's and see if it works, huh?

It does not bother me,I don't use them any way and someone must be buying them if not they would be out of business,I don't pay attention to the commercials that is my time to go to the bathroom,get a snack or whatever,never had a skin problem,zits,wrinkles etc. And if I did would not get caught up in the commercials, would enlist a dermatologist.

I could see how that might get a little old fast, but I think all commercials are a bit offensive sometimes. Except during the superbowl!

I agree with you 100%.I think if we all wrote to these companies and told them that we are not as stupid as they think we are and tell them exactly how we feel I wonder how they would feel.Just my opinion

The only wrinkles those 22 year old models see are the ones left behind in their bed sheets when they get up at 4 am to make those commercials... And they're gone when they get home because their maids have already made their beds. I absolutely will NOT buy a product thats advertised in that fashion. I love the dove commercials with the REAL women. I cant stand young women complaining about getting old or skinny women complaining that they're fat. If you want to sell a product to a certain demographic..... Then it's wise to NOT offend that certain demographic. I really doubt if theres a 55 year old woman that will buy that wrinkle cream and think shes gonna look 22...lol... If there is.. Then she has bigger problems than wrinkles. What's the brand that has these models so I can avoid it......on second thought... Lets ALL buy some, then start a class action suit when we don't all turn into beautiful 22 year old super models. ;)

I think that is a great idea! If you can get a million $$ for spilling hot coffee on yourself at McDonald's why couldn't we sue for emotional damage when we don't transform from 40 to 20 yrs/old, like they claim???

My intelligence is offended by almost all commercials, but calling the ad execs will not do any good because for every one of the people that answer this question, there are ten others I can find just by walking down the street that believe the commercial.  (Nobody's going to argue with me that Blurters are more intelligent than the average person walking down the street, right? )
 
Seriously though, if they get only 1 out of 1,000 viewers to buy the junk, they are rich.

It is ridiculous. I like it when they use actors you know are 35+ for them. But really, they all have so much make up on you don't know the truth anyways. Have you seen the make up they use for photo's/movies??? It is like putty. It is really gross.

I think it is really stupid. Plain stupid. That's taking people for complete idiots. Why would you put wrinkle cream on a face that does not need it?

Thinking a bit more about it... Maybe the message is "do it now when you don't need it in order to prevent wrinkles"? Prevention being always better than cure?

Don't know. But don't like it.

I think it makes people think it will really work. Like the before and after pictures for weight loss products. Most of the pictures they take the same day, they just put the people in clothes that are the wrong size and have them stand a certain way so they look terrible.
I just use regular lotion on my face but have been using lotion since I was in my teens and have to say that I am less wrinkly than most of my friends. And I have always been diligent about sunscreen. That's what they should be telling everyone.

I think that there are small people who gets wrinkles and needs those wrinkle creams.. But me myself I don't like to use all these 'FAKE' creams. I just use the cocoa butter cream. It's the best! It moisturizes skin, remove all dark heels, cares for dry skin, and it's used as a body lotion :)

What? They are only 20 something?, and all of this time I have been using those creams, waiting for the day I wake up and look 20 years younger like them!
Actually, I don't use wrinkle creams, and I am offended by it, but there seems to be alot of that going around, how about a skinny person trying to tell me I need to buy a weight loss product that makes the pound just drop off?

What does a 22 yr old know about wrinkle cream?  Maybe it is a preventative move?   Commercials are usually so mindless and that is the time to grab a snack, got to the bathroom etc so you don't miss a second of your show.  Except Super Bowl commercials, I like those.  After some of these commercials I say "I am dumber now!"

Commercials for wrinkle cremes shown being used by younger models is kind of dumb!! But that's what advertising is all about...and as a former makeup artist, I have to strongly disagree with you ladies who think makeup is a waste of time.....I'm not saying that all females should wear makeup; that's a personal choice, but all ladies SHOULD take care of their skin....and it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg!! As someone else here said, a mid-priced moisturizer is all you need...heck, you can even use good 'ol cocoa butter!!! It's non-greasy, inexpensive, & does the job the higher-priced ones do!! Think of the different ways you can wrap a sandwich; waxed paper, foil, sandwich bag; but what do they all have in common? They keep the sandwich fresh and from going stale!! Same with your skin; an inexpensive creme is all you need. However,  do read the label and try to avoid anything with 'mineral oil' in the first 3 or 4 ingredients...after that, you're home free, so to speak...and another thing, while I'm rantin' here LOL...you really should NOT use a washcloth to wash your face..why? For the simple reason that a washcloth moves the skin on your face around way too much....instead, wash your hands before you wash your face, then lather up with soap or whatever cleanser you use, and use your hands!! Once or twice a week, use something to exfoliate your skin; again, not ex

We all know those models are too young to have wrinkles.  They do not even smile to show crowfeet. I think it only makes young women so conscious of getting wrinkles at an early age. I don't pay attention to them or the products which are getting more and more expensive, too.

Snake oil salesmen...so I guess like they say on the commercials don't hate me because I'm beautiful....;:^)B>.....

The only reason they use 22year old people is because they know that the cream don't work! All these models that advertise these products have either perfect skin or gone through with cosmetic surgery. I also think that they should stop advertising anti-aging creams, people should be happy of who they are and not what they look like, everyone ages and people have to start accepting that they are getting older.

That's advertising for you. Have you seen those infomercials on how to have lean sculpted bodies by body builders. Same principle. People are gullable in believing that they could get ripped bodies quickly by working out on a machine that doesn't have all the things needed to get those muscles and then they promise quick results just like the diet commercials. Should I go on or stop here.

Women should try to keep their skin soft, fair, and wrinkle-free. This is a big favor to the male of the species, who value youthful beauty in their mates.
