A few weeks ago someone saw me and my daughter and told me to raise her “to be a pleasant young lady”.
Now getting unwanted parental advice from strangers is something you quickly grow used to when having kids, but this one got me thinking:
You see, there are many concerns I have in raising both my kids, but making them “pleasant” is not among them.
Independent, caring, strong, well-mannered, thoughtful, educated… So many adjectives come to mind, but pleasant? I think I don´t even associate pleasant with human beings, more with inanimate objects and, well, skincare.
Which kind of brings me to todays topic: The very pleasant Instytutum Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Brightening Eye Cream (*PR-Sample).
But please enlighten me: Do you (or would you) want your kids to be pleasant?
If you are a regular reader here, you will know that my skincare reviews require a lot of work. Not only do I try to be as detailed as possible in describing my experience, but I do research the ingredients and claims behind them as well. It helps a lot that I have access to medical databases, because, quite frankly, the „scientific“ claims on a brands website are ridiculous.
When starting my review on the DNA Eye Renewal, I already had an opinion on the cream and its claims to repair DNA, and I was in proper ranting mood. But then I did the research. The medical one. The one on the claim of topically applied DNA repairing enzymes. And guess what: They work. Scientifically proven, they do work in reducing the incidence of skin cancer while en passant undoing sun damage like wrinkles and hyper pigmentation.
But does that mean that I will urge you all to go out and buy the DNA Eye Renewal eye cream? Let´s see.
Every year, when November comes around, I ask myself why I didn’t move to a place where there is actual snow. I mean, we get snow occasionally, we even had a few flakes mixed into the constant rain earlier today, but a solid few months of nice, white layers outside?
With envy I watch Melissas Instagram, showing us the first snow of the season in Switzerland and then reach for my snow white bottle of Oskia Eye Wonder Nutri-Active Eye Serum (PR-Sample). Which, by the way, contains Swiss Apple Stem cells. That can´t be coincidence!
