Sceptical Guinea Pig

I received a parcel recently which, to be perfectly honest, I never expected to receive.  Last month a Danish glossy mag was looking for people to test wrinkle cream. Nothing dangerous - just a new fangled 'anti-ageing/anti-wrinkle/anti-gravity' cream produced by a well-known cosmetic company.

To be considered for their test panel you had to fill out a questionnaire - age, income, bla, bla, bla.  The last question was your reason for wanting to test the product.  I wrote (in Danish) that I was curious because there has never been any clinical proof that wrinkle creams actually have any effect... And, lo and behold, the box turned up!  Ha!

So here's an up-close-and-personal 'before' shot of me sans maquillage (eek!), before I applied the cream for the first time.  I'm supposed to use the cream for four weeks and then report back.


And here I am again, two weeks into the test.  Hmm, no visible improvement so far.  On the other hand - said the Canny Scot - I got a tub of face cream for free! ;D


I shall, of course, give you another update in two weeks at the end of the test.  (Just don't hold your breath waiting for a miracle.)

Have a fantastic Friday and a fabulous weekend! :)
