Giving Wrinkles the Boot(s)

Did you see yesterday's Today Show? (If not, click here for the segment.) They did a whole story about the phenomenon of Boots No7 Protect and Perfect--a facial serum that has taken the UK by storm. This product went through some pretty rigorous tests and was proven to reverse the damage caused by the sun and to smooth out wrinkles. The best thing for UK women is that Protect and Perfect costs less than $40. The bad thing is that there has been such demand for the product that it is often sold out.

As mentioned on the Today Show, Boots No7 Protect and Perfect is not available here in the States due to FDA regulations. (The government outlaws all the best stuff: unpasteurized cheese, Cuban cigars, and Boots No7 Protect and Perfect--all considered too dangerous for us here in the States. So glad they're protecting us from such evils!) However, Boots is selling No7 Restore and Renew, an almost identical product that promises the same results, at Target and CVS for less than $20. What a deal!

I've been using Restore and Renew for about 2 weeks now and have noticed that my skin is really smooth. I haven't been overly aware of the two lines I loathe and obsess over, so that's a good sign. I'll keep using Restore and Renew and will report back with my findings.

Everyone seems to be looking for the fountain of youth...maybe Boots is providing one to the masses.
