While queuing at the supermarket yesterday I spotted this headline on the cover of the latest Elle UK:

Revealed: the £7.50 face cream that’s so good we don’t wear makeup anymore!

(or something along those lines anyway)

Of course I opened the magazine to find out about this intriguingly-named wonder: Olay’s Complete Care Multi-Radiance. Because these days only One Radiance simply does not cut it.

Then later I saw it on offer at £4.49 at Superdrug – and bought it.

I am now wearing it on the right side of my face only. I defy anyone to tell which side I’ve applied it to.

I suppose one needs to use it regularly to start seeing some results, but if I spend that much on something to slap on my face, I expect to see results. Now.
