Is it all just smoothosomes and nonsense extracts? Or can something in a jar de-wrinkle me?

Are there any skin care products that have actually been proven to be effective in the "battle against aging skin"?

As a single 35 year old woman, i want to look as good and as youthful as i can for as long as i can. As a skeptic, i'm under the impression that pretty much all the creams and potions and stuff are pretty much bullshit. However, i'd love to be proven wrong, so that i can slather my face with some crap from Sephora and then go to a bar and trick people into thinking i'm 29. (Or, when i'm 40, tricking people into thinking i'm 35.)
(And yes, i have a good job and healthy self esteem and lots of 'criticisms for the the patriarchy!' and i'm totally aware of the anti-feminist etc-ness of this question, but please try to answer it anyway without telling me be confortable with who aging and stuff.)
So: is there anything that i can buy (from a store, a spa, a pharmacist) that will actually soften the little lines around my eyes, and prevent deeper ones from forming? That will keep my skin smooth and stop the pores from getting bigger? And that has been backed up with some sort of reliable study that hasn't actually been paid for by the marketing department of the manufacturer?
Assume that price is no object, that i'm not interested in medical procedures, and that i'm not interested in bullshit :)
