As the new "miracle wrinkle" cream from Avon was promoted and advertised left, right and centre I couldn't avoid reading about it and becoming more curious. Lucky for me my sister Kate is an Avon lady *ding dong Avon calling!* ha ha.
I did a little research and was surprised at the claims this cream had to make. First off they say that in clinical trials 100% of the women who tried this product showed results within 14 days - pretty convincing I'd say! This gel cream is supposed to be the new super dooper break through cream in fighting fine and deep wrinkles. It was the fastest selling cream from Avon and has say that results are achieved with ongoing use over weeks and I guess to keep the changes up you need to use it continuously.
I don't have deep wrinkles as I'm still in my twenties (only just!!) but I've started to get a little frown line across the bridge of my nose and crows feet probably from laughing too much which I don't really mind but if I can keep them at bay for a few more years then I will.
The packaging is ok, it comes in a sleek mirrored bottle with a pump dispenser. Although it looks quite sleek it's also prone to get sticky finger print marks all over the bottle so I often find I'm wiping it down with a tissue or cloth to keep it clean looking. I know, yes I might be a bit obsessive about this but it's so annoying!
For a 30ml bottle you're looking at around £20 depending on what offer they've got on at the time. With this order I *received* a little free make up bag containing some miniature goodies. The reason I put little asterisks by received in my previous sentence is because I've not actually received it yet! My sister says it's still on order but it's not due till later in the month - boo! I know what the little bag contains as a couple of my colleagues got theirs but I'm still looking forward to trying the freebies.
The cream itself is kind of a gel formulation and goes a looong way! Literally one pump is all you need, I learnt this after overusing it on several occasions and having to smear it over my partners face to use it up! He loved it really! :)
Now for the results, I've been using it for about 3 week now and can definitely see a difference in my frown line and the expression lines on my forehead. I've had to stop putting it near my eyes as it has irritated them a bit, but that's pretty much standard with me nowadays. But other than that I'm quite impressed with this, it's sort of on a par with the Perfect and Protect Serum by No7, if not a little bit better.
My only gripe is that it takes a while to sink in and I find I need to apply it a while before bed or my face sticks to my pillow. But really apart from that issue and the packaging style I can't say anything bad about it. I'm pretty sure I'll re-purchase this and I don't think it'll be for a while as it looks as if this bottle will last a while.
All in all a good purchase which appears to live up to expectations and claims!
Which "wonder" product do you use?
