How often have I employed the adjective “amazing” to a product since you’ve known me? Maybe twice, right?
If the third is the charm, I would like to share my latest secret and newest member of what I like to refer to as my “Dream Team” (you must admit my creativity for clever names is astounding, amazing really) has been tried, tested and approved by moi memein a two month applied — literally — study.
Write this down and then run out and buy it: Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler day cream. It is brilliant, budget friendly, and perhaps one of the best products I have ever used — ever.
Once again, thank you Dr. Gallais.
I shall not venture into scientific explanations because that’s not where I excel. I’m asking you to trust me. Eucerin for day (there is one for night also, but I haven’t tried it) does make lines and wrinkles appear less prominent. As you would expect, the promotional blah-blah on the paper inside with printing the size of a new born flea, and in scores of languages I couldn’t recognize, promises the hyaluronic properties of the formula work “from the inside out.”
The only hyaluronic filler that I am aware of that works from the “inside out” is “applied” by a needle that pierces the skin and deposits a liquid on the inside thus puffing the outside. Better known as “injectables” and often referred to as “slightly uncomfortable” during the process in the hands of a qualified dermatologist, like Dr. Gallais for example.

For years I’ve tried to find the secret to the glow-y faces we see in photographs of stars and celebs on the red carpet or in party pictures. What I love about the look is that it implies “young (!), fresh (!), rested (!)positively lovely (!)” and, that’s exactly what Eucerin does.
The effect is “dewy” as opposed to “I’m having a momentary heat wave. . .” Makeup tricks can produce glow-y, but I prefer the idea of a glow that is doing double-duty by working on my lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid molecules, I’m told, are too large to penetrate the skin (thus injectables — syringes — that open the door if you will, to let them in). Never mind, the Eucerin cream is the next best thing. Why? How? I’m not a scientist. These questions do not fascinate me. Results on the other hand, that’s another story entirely.
Oh yes, it has a built in SPF 15.
Please get back to me on this after you try it. You can thank me then.
And, before you ask: No, unfortunately I am not on the Eucerin payroll. Not even the free sample list — yet. . .
