Have you tried these: http://1clickactions.com/portraitkit.htm?
They've been working pretty well for me.

I think you should research what you want to do, and make your own actions. That will get you a better result. The money is better spent on a good instructional DVD instead imo.

That said, I know a lot of people use the plugin Portraiture for quick skin retouching.

The photoshop actions i uses day in and out in my work are the ones i have made myself. Almost all of them are based around workflow and setup instead of automated fixes. I have something like 30 bult around my retouching workflow that helps speed up how fast i can work by doing the steps i am constantly repeating. Adobe Configurator is another key part to making actions really useful.

As far as actions, I'd recommend making your own. The better you become using Photoshop the more interesting your actions will be. I'd recommend light room, I like Nik Software filters, and Topaz filters.

Note the discounts where applicable.
