What do you really need in an anti-aging cream?

Are you as confused as I am about the thousands of anti-aging beauty creams out there and their endless lists of scientific age-defying ingredients? It’s enough to make a gal throw her hands up in the air and say, “Forget it all.. just pass me a little vaseline please.”
