The type of skin I have is “old,” but vital: I have good genes, but I’m starting to get the dewlaps of my dad, and the wattle of my mama. But I am fighting the good, if not surgical, fight.
I was lucky enough to get to try the new formulation of my already favorite eye cream Your Best Face Correct ($150 in the TIA shop). I’ve been using it for about a month, morning and night. And I love it. But I loved it before. So what is different? Well, it is subtle, but now I actually feel it doing the tightening my 60-year-old eyes need… I actually feel it going to work in a way the old formula didn’t manifest. It’s not a radical thing, but when I look in the mirror after a few minutes, I have none of the puffy-bag deal going that usually greets me in the morning if I don’t use the cream. I did switch back to the old formula a couple of times to see if I was imagining it… but it was palpable, the “lift,” and visible. What’s not to like about that? So I can report that, for me, anyway, the new Correct is an even better version of the old.
I will say that at times the pump seems to give out a more “watery” version of the cream, which I never noticed happening with the old formula. But whatever is in the stuff keeps on working.
I am an actor, and currently playing Tamora Queen of the Goths in Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus. It’s an “all gal/all gall” production here in Seattle, and I happen to be the oldest gal on stage. But I am also playing her as a hot-to-trot sexpot, and reviews have called me “lip –smacking” and “delicious”… could YBF have helped give me an edge? I’ll take it! Whatever, it’s a blast, and all the girls tell me I can claim 45 at the most. Surely, they flatter… but I am a total YBF junkie for life.
Please tell YBF to work on a NECK cream!
