However — well, you know me so well by now — every time I see her, my first question is always, “What’s new?”
“Time-Filler by Filorga,” she said.
At her recommendation, the minute I left her office I dashed into the parapharmacy corner of Monoprix to buy my Time-Filler cream. It’s rather expensive, about $85, but we can divide that by two because it works as a day and a night cream.
My ex-husband never failed to tell me how continually amazed he was at the amount of money I could spend to save money. No matter how many times I tried to explain, he refused to absorb the higher math concept of markdowns and promotional prices.
As I was saying, the cream. . . I’ve been using it for about two weeks now — I wanted to test it before telling you about it. And, it is brilliant. It truly is. Although I never really trust the promises on the “literature” inside the boxes of products, I’ll share with you what the company says. As you can see I’ve just pasted it below, you probably won’t want to read every word (I did of course, research, research, research. . .), but if even half of the hype is true, we may have found the closest thing to youth without intervention by sharp, shiny objects in the hands of professionals with lots of medical degrees.
In case you have neither the time nor the inclination to read everything, let me simply assure you that we appear to be covered on the free-radical front, have more vitamins externally than most of us absorb internally and then, the best news, we’ve got our requisite supply of the magic hyaluronic acid. I don’t know why it’s so great, but I know it is. Dr. Gallais told me so.
