Wrinkles or Sleep? Tough Call
This treat was compliments of a Nordstrom’s gift card that had been burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas. That gift card was for $200 and not $500 so I really could not buy every single product “Adrienne” used on me. I bought the make up and passed on the skin creams. Chanel, I love your makeup, but I have a rough time justifying $150+ on…..creams.
I came home from that makeover feeling like a new woman. It was a huge difference from the way I had been doing it these past few years.
As for the creams? Onto Walgreens I went. Bought Loreal’s RevitaLift AM/PM Day Duo.
I’ll say this. It worked well. I definitely saw a difference. But this isn’t a review of the product.
It’s a complaint.
- Monday night? Tossed and turned. Chalked it up to brain overload.
- Tuesday during the day? A strange tingly feeling all morning. Sleep was slow to come, too.
- Wednesday night? Tossed and turned until around 1Am when it hit me that the only thing new in my life that could was this anti-old person cream. I was feeling like I had drank a coffee with caffeine. Caffeine? Could there possibly be caffeine in that cream I had been piling on for days now?
First thing the next morning I looked it up.
PM Formula:Water, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butyrospermum Parkii (She Butter) Butter, Poly C10 30 Alkyl Acrylate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Sucrose Stearate, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Caffeine, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Polyacrylate Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (Sunflower Seed Oil), Silica, Vigna Aconitifoliz/Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract, Acetyl Trifluoromethylphenyl Valylglycine, Crithmum Maritimum Extract, Oxothazolidinecarboxylic Acid, Acrylates/C10 30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Retinyl Palmitate, Methylparaben, Chlorphenesin, Propylparaben.
Yep, I’m that sensitive to caffeine. I was also entirely strung out from having slept only 4 hours 3 nights in a row and hungover from all the caffeine.
I don’t get it though. Who is the rocket scientist that felt caffeine would be perfect for a NIGHT CREME? Seriously???!!???
I’ve moved on now. I now own the wrinkle cream that comes complete with a vibrator. Now THAT is ingenious!
