>Ooh, you lucky people you. It’s another report fresh from London courtesy of that lovely Miss Keren… She spoils us. Which is lucky since I’m so bloody manically busy, I just let you down (Yes, I am fishing for reassurance).
I do love a bit of a story behind a product, maybe it’s because I work in book publishing, but even Michelle Obama likes this story. Once upon a time, some scientist-types noticed that when the Swiss apple fell from the tree it did not wrinkle for a long, long time. Hmmm, they thought, can we extract something from said apple to make a miracle cream. For a while the miracle cream was only available to those with a husband in the white house… But thanks to the lovely people at Superdrug we can all afford to have a go.
Superdrug Optimum Swiss Apple Skin Renewal Day Cream is the latest addition to Superdrug’s Optimum apple stem cell anti-aging skincare range, the first being their best-selling Overnight renewal serum. Both products claim to contain the same miracle ingredient as the expensive versions, but for a lot less pennies… one example being Clark’s Botanicals Cellular Lifting serum is £284 at Space.NK (I digress… but the packaging is so pretty)
I have been using them both* for a few weeks now, and the first thing I noticed was the smell – fresh and (unsurprisingly) apple-y, as I find most miracle creams can smell a bit, well… Plain, if you know what I mean.
I have to admit, even if this is a bit annoying, I don’t have massive amount of wrinkles apart from a mahoosive frown line acquired from 10 years of glaring at people who crush me on the tube. But I do have a tendency to fine dehydration lines around my eyes, and I can say it has rehydrated my tired looking skin and my face feels super-smooth.
