Illustration fancy: Palmer's Fade Cream

Date acquired: April 2012
Emotional worth: 0

I have been lucky to be blessed with pretty good skin. However recently I have noticed an emergence of a couple of age spots under my eyes and on my forehead. It is nothing major and can be easily covered with makeup, but since then I have been more vigilant with my skincare, i.e. wearing sunscreen and using eye cream. I spotted this at Priceline and thought I'll give it a try. It promises to reduce the appearance of age spots, liver spots, freckles and melasma as well as preventing the spots from darkening and recurring after regular usage. To be honest, I thought this would be too good to be true, there is no such thing as miracle in a bottle. Instead, it was the 80's inspired packaging that won me over.

With little expectation, I started using it every morning and night as instructed. As predicted, nothing really happened, but after a couple of weeks, my face started breaking out. Not one or two little spots, but clutters around my chin and forehead! Since then, I have stopped using it and am about to throw it out the bin this very moment. My face is slowly recovering from the trauma, and I guess my search of a miracle cream continues.
