Back in 2006, Consumer Reports tested anti-wrinkle face creams. They were about 90% ineffective -- the best made only 10% difference, and only temporarily.

I think there was an even older Consumer Reports test of skin oils/moisturizers. As I recall, there was no connection between price, label, and effectiveness. The cheapest option would be to spend $2 at the grocery store on a pound of lard -- and it'd be as effective as the expensive brand name moisturizers.
