Olay Professional Anti-Wrinkle Kit
Why do some mirrors seem to distort reality? The one in our bathroom is quite flattering (more a case of luck than some sort of beauty-related Feng Shui), I'm usually content with what I see - though I have to admit that my expectations are fairly low. But sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in an airplane toilet, a lift, or worse, a shop, and am shocked by my ancient reflection. This happened the other day. On the lookout for a new pair of sunglasses, I was trying on a pretty neat cat's eye frame, took a quick look at my appearance in the mirror and one of those kooky New Yorkers from Advanced Style was staring back at me. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. It's just that when I met the lovely Ari Seth Cohen last year, he told me he likes to photograph people in their 70s, 80s and 90s - and That's Not My Age isn't anywhere near the septuagenarian years just yet. Though I do aspire to rock the bohemian grandma-look in approximately 25-years time.
Until then, I'm more than happy to use wrinkle cream. This Professional Anti-Wrinkle Kit from Olay contains an Age Defying Day Moisturiser SPF 30, a Wrinkle Smoothing Cream and a Deep Wrinkle Complex - and has been a massive hit in America (where it's called Pro X), almost as popular as Kate Middleton in a Reiss dress and fascinator. Now, Olay aren't just making random claims here, oh no... the efficacy of the product has been scientifically proven by clinical testing. So, it actually does work. The boffins at Olay together with 'an international group of renowned dermatologists' have confirmed that the products reduce fine lines and wrinkles in only 28 days. Hoorah! The Olay wonder-kit goes on sale in August, but on Wednesday 22 June a batch of 300 are available from Boots. Sign up here for yours, and let me know how you get on. If you live in the USA and have tried Pro X, please share the experience.
And I have to tell you that this is a sponsored post.
