I understand that the burden of ageism falls far more heavily on women than men.
I understand that rational people want to avoid exposure to age-related bigotry.
I understand that taking steps to maintain healthy looking skin is a good thing.
My comments below should not be seen as criticism of people (men and women alike) who want to “look better.” That’s cool.
Not so cool are the hucksters who want to make a quick buck off of other people’s fears.
Now, on to a real life testimonial!
I decided to share my story because I know there are tons of people out there who want to look younger and can’t afford cosmetic surgery. There are tons of bogus products out there, and I found two that actually work. You can read my story below.
Dr. T: This is a fake blog. It is actually an extended online advertisement. Buy my product or pay for expensive cosmetic surgery— Classic Either Or Fallacy! “Tons of Bogus products?” True. Including these products.
How Everything Started
It is not something that I really feel comfortable talking about, but I went through a bout of depression right after I hit my mid-40s.
Dr. T: Yeah not too comfortable. The person (I think it was written be a middle aged male advertising copy writer) is obviously comfortable enough to publish it on the INTERNETS!
I don’t really know how to explain how I felt, but I became very self-concious [sic] about how I was aging. It seemed like every morning I woke up and saw a new line in my face. I even went through a period of contemplating cosmetic surgery, botox, restalyne, I looked into all of it. It [sic] just couldn’t afford it.
Dr. T: Wow. Cue the violins.
So once I decided that cosmetic surgery was not for me, I went on a mission to find the best possible wrinkle cream without spending hundreds of dollars. My hopes were not high. Lol.
Dr. T: lol? OK maybe it was written by a 14 year old.
I stumbled upon the “anti-wrinkle” holy grail two months ago. I found a couple of companies called Lift SP and Ageless Skin Cream. I found that a lot of people have gotten good results from these products individually, but I didn’t find anyone who had decided to combine them in a daily regiment. I always wanted to be a groundbreaker.
Here’s how I decided on these 2 products.
Dr. T: If this kind of “evidence” persuades you, dear reader, I have a bridge you really ought to consider buying from me.
I choose to try Lift SP first because:
– A Board-Certified plastic surgeon created it.
– There is no chemical peels or abrasive techniques.
– You get a whole kit for a 4 dollar shipping charge.
– It is a natural and healthy solution.
Dr. T: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
And I settled on the Ageless Skin Serum because:
– It was awarded the #1 Skin Product.
– It helps reduce fine lines and prevent deepening wrinkles.
– It contains moisturizers to prevent dry skin.
– They also offer a free kit …I’m a sucker for freebies lol!
Dr. T: OK now my brain is starting to hurt.
What Happened Next.
The Ageless stuff arrived first, the LiftSP package actually came 3 days later. I was actually impressed with the packaging, I was expecting to get some kinda repackaged lotion or something. Before I used either of the kits, I decided to take a before picture, so I could really measure my results.
This is Before Photoshopping
This is After Photoshopping
Dr. T: This is the person who just a couple of paragraphs ago was ashamed to even mention her “problem” now she’s conducting “clinical research” and posting a photo of her pruney old wrinkled face on the internet! Ummm. No.
Everything was in place. I had chosen my wrinkle products carefully, I took my before picture – I was ready to go.
I put the LiftSp on for the first time on a Monday night. I applied it only my problem areas – my laugh lines, my crows feet. I can say for sure that there was a definite tingling feeling after I let it soak in. I decided to go to sleep and let it work its wonders while I slumbered.
Dr. T: She slumbered, slumbered I tell you!
I woke up early the next morning and practically ran to the mirror. I was almost positive that my wrinkles would have melted away overnight. Then I looked in the mirror.
Nothing had changed.
Dr. T: OK, that last sentence is true.
But I didn’t give up….
Despite my epic first night failure, I didn’t give up. I decided to keep using the LiftSP every night and use the Ageless Skin kit every morning. It took about 3 days of using both kits before I noticed results. But, boy did I get some results.
You saw the before and after pictures above, I look at least 10 years younger. Well…maybe I am a little biased, but I definitely got rid of a ton of lines and wrinkles! I kept using both of the kits until every single drop of cream was gone. And I’ll let you in on a secret, I actually ordered another free trial of each in my husbands name!! No rules against that….shhhh. 😉
Dr. T: My question is why the “husband” isn’t using the stuff to get rid of his “laugh lines.”
I really hope that everyone that reads my little wrinkle blog is able to achieve results at least half as good as mine. I think anyone would be happy with that. Thanks to everyone for all the support, and remember you are never too old to feel young.
Dr. T: JSM— “Just Shoot Me.” That’s how I’m feeling. Gotta take a shower after reading this dreck. Or, in the Immortal phrasing of actor James Carey…
“Laaaa Hewwww. Zaaaaa. Haaaar.”
