Executive Beauty Director

Of the many elaborate charts and graphs I see touting the wild effectiveness of this or that cream, often the most confounding are “before and after” photographs. We (the assembled beauty editors) blink encouragingly, straining to see the change the presenters are so excitedly heralding.

But we all straightened in our chairs, our collective jaws dropping open like fish when we saw the “before and afters” on this cream. Particularly when paired with Brandt’s new Pearl Serum (which indeed looks like pearls). Not one editor left without making sure they took a bag with the cream in it; people were ripping open the bags to make absolutely sure. I was, of course, among them. Applied assiduously for two weeks, it firms, smooths and plumps to a seriously noticeable degree.
