Wish Upon a Jar – Review

I seldom do review blogs but having tried a new product recently, I feel compelled to write about my experience.  The product in question is this:-

This new face cream is made by the Soap & Glory company and they market it as a “21 day collagen overhaul cream.”  The wonderfully retro packaging always delights me and having used a few of their products before, I was happy to give this fairly expensive cream a go.

I bought it in Boots for just under £15.00 and the packaging says you should use it either in place of or underneath your usual moisturiser, twice a day for 21 days and then stop.  You have to wait 3 months before using it again.

It comes in a gorgeous silver globe pot which made me drool as soon as I saw it on the shelf as I’m heavily into anything chrome and I will admit that one of my first thoughts was how well it would go with my decor (yes, shallow of me I know, so sue me.)

The cream itself is thick in texture and a beautiful pale pink colour with the most heavenly slightly orange smell.  A little goes a long way and in fact, if you’re too generous with it I find it hard to get it worked in, so remember, less is more.  It glides on, despite being quite thick and even though I have oily skin, it sinks in quickly without leaving a shine.

It claims to reduce fine lines but as I’ve only been using it for 3 days now, I can’t verify that.  What I can verify is the amazing smoothness of my skin.  My complexion is fairly open and, being 50 now, not as fine as it once was but I noticed immediately how amazingly smooth my face feels with this cream.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product, just for the softness if nothing else (apart from the uber cool pot of course) and I will update after the 21 days are up as to the state of my ‘fine lines’ (wrinkles to you and me).
