A couple of years ago there was flurry of publicity for Freeze 24.7 one of those so-called Botox in a jar creams. Naturally, I gave it a try.

It was a huge disappointment. Not only did it not achieve the desired effect, I found it near impossible to use. After application, it seemed to sit on the surface of the skin rather than become absorbed and then within a couple of hours would begin to flake off. By the end of the day my shoulders looked as if I had a serious dandruff problem. By the time the jar was less than half empty, the cream had started to dry out into unusable lumps.

My experience is borne out by negative reviews on Amazon: frequent complaints of dry skin and, at $115, what a waste of money it is. I couldn't agree more.
