    Courteney Cox has beautiful skin. She always did since Friends and even younger. I watch Cougar Town and I do notice some changes in her lips though. I mean she’s gorgeous, but let’s face it, every actress worth her salt and who wants to stay in the biz does get a little something done. I’m pretty sure she had her lips done and had either botox or Juvederm. But a very small and very good job. Not sure what she’s done, but she’s definitely had some work done. She doesn’t have a wrinkle on her face. When you’re in your 40′s that’s next to impossible. She looks fantastic! She has, as usual, a great shape and she looks wonderful. Most people with money can afford the best products as well. She endorses “Kinerase” skin products and believe me they are fantastic!! You can get them at Sephora or Ulta. Love, love, love the products. They are fantastic. I actually got carded after so long when I was wearing the moisturizer, seriously, I have nothing to gain by lying about this. I was thrilled to say the least. I’m not 100, I’m in my 30′s, but it felt great. No doubt this stuff works. It’s my version of Creme De La Mer. That stuff is so utterly expensive I treat myself to the serum and the face cream maybe once a year because the price is just outrageous! Kinerase isn’t that cheap either. Their best product that makes your skin just glow is the Celex C product. You put that on before you put the moisturizer on and it’s just fabulous! $95.00 is not cheap though. So I use it very sparingly. But sunscreen daily.. so that’s a given. If we’re really hurting for money, and let’s face it, the economy sucks, Neutrogena and Olay and Garnier has fantastic products. They can be bought at Target and if you need something in a flash and you’re broke, either way, they’re great products. Have tried them all and they are great.
