One Week Later

Has it been a week already? The end of the semester whirs by between last-minute student make-up work (like the whole semester’s worth for some of them), term papers and finals…ugh. Luckily, I love teaching. It gets me through that nasty time of the school cycle.

But I’ve been too busy to keep a close eye on my little experiment here. So, this is what happened:

  1. I used the Reverse regimen for a week: Saturday night, Sunday morning and night, Tuesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning. If you follow the directions on the box properly, you use the four-step (four product potions) every other morning for the first week. I screwed that up, but oh well. The point is to get your skin used to the product slowly. Doing anything slowly is difficult for me.


Each item is numbered by the order of use. For those who don’t pay attention enough (me), that’s a pretty good feature.

2. I knew from trying a mini facial sample before I got my hands on this box of Reverse skin care that I liked how my skin felt after the micro-derm scrub and the lip serum. Nothing is greasy or heavy, very light, but highly moisturizing. But I wasn’t prepared for that addictive clean, smooth feel on my skin. Regardless of whether or not my skin transforms into pure, radiant beauty or not (lol), I loved that feel. That’s probably why I couldn’t skip Friday’s morning wash like I was supposed to.

3. After a week of using the Reverse on and off, not only I but my 18-year old daughter noticed my forehead looked smoother.  Last night at my niece’s birthday dinner, two of my sisters confirmed that my forehead did look smoother (maybe the power of suggestion, though, since I mentioned it first). I made a few people there feel my forehead, which, for introvert me, must mean that a glass of wine on an empty stomach emboldens me far too much 😉

Maybe it’s too hard to tell since the two shots are not from the same angle or distance, but these forehead shots are one week apart.

Am I a hopeless dreamer or do you detect a slight softening of the lines?

3. And the third thing that happened was this:

I slept with those puppies (acute care strips in the blue and white package) all night for my lovely crow’s feet (if you’re negative) or laugh lines (if you’re not). Again, selfies are not my strong suit, so maybe the effect is not coming through. I’ll leave it to you, dear viewers, to examine the effects.

I’m not sure how this experiment will turn out, but so far, it’s a lot of fun!
