These days it’s the men of Hollywood who are having all the work done. Jackie Collins told me this and she should know. There isn’t even a whiff of a scandal or betrayal or a hint of an eye job that goes on without her knowing. And she is right, so many men with tiny sparkling eyes and eyebrows stretched into a permanently surprised face.
Women have wised up, the right cream and the right laser combo can strip years from your face without it looking like anything has gone on. I was very excited to receive Murad’s Intensive Wrinkle Reducer with Durian Cell Reform. It comes with glowing reviews promising to improve skin smoothness by 33% in two weeks and diminish the appearance of fine lines by 55% in twelve weeks. People who have tried have their stories printed on the inside of the box.
“Wrinkles that I never thought would disappear started to diminish. It seems like everyone is searching for a product that will keep them looking younger. This is the only product I have found that has lived up to its promise.”
The cream itself has the texture of liquid satin and it smells of the smell I always wanted to bottle: it smells of fresh new clothes as you unwrap them from the tissue of a Barneys or Selfridges or Liberty’s bag. It is the smell of indescribable freshness and promise with a hint of woodiness and that is exactly what this repair cream delivers, freshness and newness that is, definitely not the woodiness.
The effects are spectacular. I am also loving my Correcting Moisturiser from Murad. It too has a wonderful smell and it’s green, a pale, mint ice cream green and it tells me I am going to project self-confidence. I have always wondered about those green-pigmented things, if they actually worked to take away redness. This one is a perfect primer to the face, it also seems to smooth out blemishes and give a magnificent polished look that is not shiny or greasy, just elegant and smooth.
Dr. Murad, you have a convert.
