“Don’t Frown, You’ll Get Wrinkles” and Other Advice I Didn’t Listen To

by Aeryn Lynne

Were you ever told that “sage” advice while growing up? Don’t frown, because your face will wrinkle up in a weird way when you’re older. I have a few issues with my eyesight, including a greater sensitivity to sunlight. I always looked angry/frowny-faced while I sat/played/lived in the sunlight, without any sunglasses to speak of. I was already wearing glasses to see properly, and there weren’t any inexpensive options for me to wear both glasses and shades at the same time. People thought I was quite the angry kid, and it was all because the sun was too bright. And now I’ve got these fine lines right between the eyes from all that squinting.

To be honest, I was banking on the idea that, by the time I was old enough to care about such things, there would be some kind of miraculous beauty technology available to the general public, so I convinced myself not to worry so much.

Now I have to write a thank-you note to Garnier for developing the Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Night Cream (available across Canada, msrp $24.99,) for proving me right! Whew! I did all the wrong things I could possibly do with the skin around my eyes while growing up. If a room was too bright, I’d squint. If I heard a great joke, I’d squint while laughing. My resting face? Mostly squinting, until I trained myself out of that habit. While in university, I would repeatedly rub around my eyelids, with enough force to actually create red spots of nearly broken skin occasionally, either because my contacts got inexplicably dry in the computer labs, or I was just flat out exhausted. I didn’t have much care other than for instant relief, though I did have this small internal nagging voice saying I would pay for this oversight later.

Have you tried Garnier’s Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Night Cream yet? It’s a little jar that could. Immediately, after trying it out for the first time, I saw results the very next morning. Visibly reduced signs of fatigue and wrinkles fine lines, all the while rejuvenating my skin for a healthy glow I haven’t seen in quite some time.

Jay, TheHubs, noticed the scent the first night I tried it out. We both enjoy the soothing Lavender Essential Oil within, which is among 7 active ingredients that make this night cream so effective (other ingredients include: Hyaluronic acid, and LHA.) I enjoy the fact that as much as I love the scent of lavender, especially when I’m trying to rest, my pillow doesn’t smell like the night cream later. No matter how much I might smush my face into my pillow, or sleeping-mask, the cream stays on my skin, creating a nice smooth texture under my eyes while I snore away.

There is also a light-weight Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Eye Cream from Garnier that really focuses on the elasticity of skin just beneath your eyes (also available across Canada, msrp $24.99,) which is fabulous if you too disregarded the “don’t rub your eyes so hard” rule like I did in the past.

Don’t take my word for it though, try the Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream Night Cream yourself, so you can experience an overnight miracle of your very own! Regardless of why the signs of life found their way onto your skin, this cream will feel like it’s giving you a fresh new start every morning.
