|Dot, dot, dot, going, going, almost gone.|
As I’ve mentioned on several occasions, when my great friend, Pseu of the superb blog
Une Femme and I are together in Paris, we spend an embarrassing amount of timetalking about the latest and greatest beauty and maintenance products we love and then we hit the les rues de Paris to stock up.
I thought I should mention though, we do spend a few minutes updating each other on international politics. She tells me what’s going on in the United States and I tell her what I know (from trash and the respectable press publications) about French president François Hollande’s complicated love life and what ramifications it might or might not have on his future in politics. You know, important conversational detours like that. Bottom line: It’s fun being together. We see no contradiction between trying a new lipgloss color and discussing the state of the economy for example.
Our most recent lunch/gossip/catch-up session during her recent trip to Paris included a serious conversation about that oh so pesky problem many (most?) of us face in one place or another: Ugly brown spots.
Before she arrives I always ask what I can do for her to save precious time we could use to talk (and talk and talk. . .) and shop (and shop and shop). This time she was wondering whether I had discovered a new spot remover solution that could be applied without the assistance of a dermatologist wielding either a laser or dry ice.
My professional informants have always told me that the topical products we can buy in a pharmacy — even those that are prescription strength — only fade spots. Pseu said she was ready to accept fading, but wanted the best of the best on the market.
As always, I turned to my friend and pharmacist, Christine. “As far as fading goes, Spotner is the best product I’ve ever seen,” she said. Christine always tells me the absolute truth. I bought it for Pseu, but with all of our talking and shopping we forgot and left it in my car. Thus I was given an unexpected opportunity to try her new product.
It’s applied, spot-by-spot with a pen-like thingie and it features a built in UVB filter and a 50 SPF. The sun protection is brilliant because those little devils come back as fast as we can erase them.
I just started using it, and so far the fading results are excellent. Now that Spotner has been tried and conscientiously tested by me I can send a new box on to Pseu with my endorsement. I’m endorsing “fading” remember, not a miracle.
