It’s now been quite a few weeks since I purchased this product for the first time and I thought it about time I gave my final verdict. The packaging is lovely and I will admit that this was the first thing that drew my attention. The instructions say to use the product for 21 days, after which you go back to your usual cream for three months, when you can then use it for another 21 days.
I still love the smell of this cream but I won’t be buying it again, for 2 main reasons. Firstly, there is no noticeable difference in my wrinkles. Secondly, it’s very thick and doesn’t spread easily when cold. Let me explain. I’m a destitute writer and cannot afford to put the heating on in my flat. I’ve managed the whole winter so far without heating; through wind, rain and snow and because of this, my bathroom is colder than a penguin’s arsehole. I find this cream very difficult to spread at these temperatures, due to its thickness, which forces me to use more of it. This then makes my skin feel overloaded and uses the product up quicker. Thirdly, it’s very expensive; over 15 quid a pot and I cannot justify such an expense when it doesn’t help my wrinkles.
Okay that’s three reasons, well I’m a writer not a mathematician!
For those who want a very thick cream that smells wonderful, who are financially comfortable and able to afford botox or laser resurfacing and who live in a warm climate, this product would be perfect for you. Me? I’ll stick to Lidl’s own brand at £2.50 a pot.
