Time is marching across my face and leaving telltale signs everywhere. Just between you and me, I'm not such a big fan of wrinkles. Frankly, aging gracefully is nice and all, but who says you have to enjoy crow's feet or laugh lines. There's nothing wrong with trying to beat them back.
As if sensing my frustration, the people at Garnier sent me a challenge. The "Ultra-Lift Challenge" to be exact. Try their Ultra-Lift products for 14 days and watch the clock work in reverse. Hmmm. Ok, I like that idea.
So, they sent me a wrinkle ruler. Let me just say that a wrinkle ruler is not fun, especially when you’re sitting on the upper half of that baby. I measured a 7. ACK!! That’s like only 3 away from as bad as it can get apparently. Also, this picture made me painfully aware my eyebrows were out of control!! Thank goodness they didn't ask me to measure those.
I diligently used the program for the last 14 days and yes indeed there is a difference. Is there a 6.5 on this ruler? While I don’t see a huge difference in 14 days, I do see where my crow’s feet don't appear to be quite as pronounced as they were when I took this photo.
The scent of Garnier Ultra-Lift products is not overpowering and I do love the feel of it on my skin. It feels rich and since I have dry skin I definitely liked that. I did find that the eye cream swelled my eyes a bit, so I had to be careful to just apply just to my ever annoying #7 crow’s feet and avoid the under eye area.
Nothing is going to stop time from moving forward, that’s inevitable, but at least with the Garnier Ultra-Lift products, you can make it appear as if the clock is moving backwards just a little.
And while you’re busy looking young on the outside, remember to balance it with a good attitude, like this:
To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent - that is to triumph over old age.
