I am someone who is incredibly easily impressed.
Mostly by things and hardly ever by people.
Today’s impressive thing is Elemis’ new Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream. I think I might have casually mentioned my forthcoming thirtieth birthday and while I’m perfectly happy with the state of my skin, I have become incredibly paranoid over the last couple of years. When I was seventeen, I got contact lenses. The optician fitting them said it might be tricky at first because my eyelids were really tight. ‘They’ll get looser as you get older,’ he assured me. ‘And you know, contact lenses tend to get lines around their eyes earlier because they’re always messing with the skin.’
This scared me shitless.
But no fear… for the last two months, I’ve been using the latest Elemis eye cream and I have to say, it’s not just preventing lines, it seems to be improving the texture of the lines that are already there. Apparently the cream has new ‘chaperone technology’ with ‘scientifically proven plant stem cells to help redensify aging skin’ and defends against lifestyle influences.
I believe this means I can continue to wear a ridiculous amount of eyeliner, stay up late and get drunk far too often and this wonder cream will continue to reverse the effects of my thirty years.
