Let's get one thing straight. I HATE scams. I HATE the fact that there are so many of them
online. The internet, while it has a lot of perks, has become a headquarter for scams. It gets to the point
that whenever you see something really good online, you have to stop and say "I wonder if this is on
all been there. I'm sure each and every one of us has been duped at one time or another. It's a horrible
feeling. We have a problem and these companies claim to have the solution. You pay them lots of money to cure
the solution, yet you still have the problem. Doesn't
seem right, does it?
comes to the skin skin care field, scams are very prevalent. They are all over the place. There are so many
low quality products that claim to make you look 40 years younger, but when you try them out, you look the
same. I speak from my own experience.
I've purchased my own share of "can't
miss" products. Well......guess
what? They did!
Being that I am a woman in my 50s, aging is a bit of a sore subject for me. I know that this may
seem a little vane but I miss the skin I used to have, and I am insecure about the wrinkles that are on my face. I
know that this is just part of the natural aging process but that doesn't mean I have to like
I suppose I just miss the the skin that I had when I was in my 20s
(who doesn't, right?). Back then, my skin was as smooth as a baby's butt. But as I grew into middle age, I slowly
began to see more and more wrinkles.
Obviously all of my friends were going through the same thing. We confided
with each other on just about everything, especially when it came to our age. I'm sure you know how sensitive us
ladies are about our age. It's a tough thing for a woman to have to deal with, so its only natural for her to start
looking for ways to at least slow down the aging
I was desperate to find a solution. I knew that every
day that was passing, the more wrinkly and less smooth my skin was going to look like. I didn't want to think
about what I would look like when I hit my 60s. I though if these keeps up I'm going to end up looking like
Clint Eastwood when I turned 60. (ok...ok.....so I'm a little overdramatic.)
I ended up buying
A LOT of skin creams
This may be a bit embarrassing but I must have tried every single anti-aging skin product on the
market. Go ahead, just think of one......I probably bought
it. To give you some idea, just off the top of my head, here are just
a small sample of some of the seemingly infinite amount of products that I purchased:
- Athena 7 Minute
- The list goes on and
I wasn't exactly blown away with the results that I
was getting, needless to say. If I had to pick one that was best out of all the ones that I tried, I guess it would
have to be Astara. But that's not saying
No one was going to confuse me with Angeline Jolie,
if you catch my drift. I was just getting really aggravated with the whole thing. I knew that there had to be some
people who were getting help for this somewhere, but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what they were
Whatever hope I had, was quickly fading fast. One
day, out of the blue, I get a phone call from an old friend of mine, Sheila. She was actually my college roommate.
It's probably been about a year since the last time I saw her, and about 6 months since I last spoke to her on the
Anyway, we end up talking about this and that,
catching up on what's going on in her life. She asked me about what was going on with me, and I just happen to be
on the computer at the time surfing around for anti-aging creams, so I told her that's what I was doing that
She chuckled a little bit, and I asked her
"what was so funny?" She said
"oh nothing, I just know what you mean" She proceeded to tell me about a cream that she bought which she was very happy with. She told
me the name. It was called Revitol.
Frankly, I never heard of it, but she said it's
been really helpful. So I jotted down the name and told her I would check it out online. We ended our conversation.
She was going to be in town, so we scheduled to have a lunch together the following week.
I went to the main website to see what it was all about. It looked good. The site
talked about all the things that the product did for your skin. The problem was so
did every other website selling a skin cream! They all tell what you want to hear. That's why they are called sales pages. So, I
basically took everything with a grain of salt. I shut off my computer and didn't think about it
I met Sheila at the
restaurant we said we were going to have lunch at. I got there a little early so I ended up waiting for her. I must
have waited about 20 minutes, then I hear behind me "sorry I'm late, traffic was murder". I look back and there she
She looked amazing. She
looked like she did when she was in her early 40s. When you are 55, your 40s seem like a long time ago. The
difference was night and day. The first thing I thought was that she had plastic surgery. But she said
"NO, I wouldn't do that in a million years." So I said, "what
happened?" She said "I
told you on the phone, I've been using that new product."
I thought she was pulling
my leg. I kept berating her to tell me what else she was doing to make her skin look so young. She told
me "that's it, nothing else".
We had a lovely meal and
we caught up with one another. After the meal, I went straight home. The moment I walked in the door,
I went straight
to the computer to find out more information about this product.
When I was doing my
research I was really surprised to read about so many people who had very nice things to say about the
about women who were getting compliments from friends about how
much younger they look (kind of like what I said to
My interest greatly
increased. But there was that little voice inside my head that kept saying "you've been burned before". I was just worried that it
wasn't going to work for me. When you've been scammed as many times as I have, you tend to get a little
But when I looked at the
sales page, there was one thing that caught my
I just love the
word "free". They were (and still are) letting people have it for free.
I thought about all those
creams that I purchased in the past, and I couldn't remember a time when I
got anything for free. Every single one that I purchased was completely out of pocket. Frankly, I
found this very refreshing. It was nice to see a company have enough faith in their product to allow people
to try it first, to see if they would like it.
The only thing that I
would have to pay for is the shipping and handling, which is $6.95, which I thought was actually a little expensive
for shipping, but since I was getting the cream for free, it didn't bother me too much.
So I sat there and thought
"should i give this a try?" Well....I talked myself into it. The price was definitely right. I figured at worse, I would be
out $6.95, which is a lot less than I used to spend on these kind of products, or it actually works, and I will
have finally found a solution to my problem.
It took a little less than
a week for the product to arrive by mail. I guess that's normal. I was told it would take between 5-7 business
Once I received it, I
quickly opened the box to take a look at the contents and the instructions. The instructions were pretty cut and
dry. You use the cream, the complex, and the serum, twice a a day.
I am not what you would call the most patient person who has ever lived. Whenever I get something
I want to see results and I want to see them really fast!
But I knew that really
wasn't realistic. Just as aging is a slow process, so is anti-aging. But I decided to do one of those old
fashioned, before-after photos, so I can check my progress, and I promised myself I wouldn't check it for at least
So the experiment had
begun. I took a photo of myself the day before I started the treatment.
I did it for the first
week, and I personally didn't notice anything different about how I looked. My husband didn't say anything. So I
figured "ok....its going to take a little bit of time". Rome
wasn't built in a day.
Cut to the second week,
I'm staying on schedule, still putting on the creams everyday, twice a day, but I'm still not noticing anything
Onto the next week (week
#3). By the end of this week I was going to take a picture of myself and compare and
contrast. I was actually becoming a little disappointed. I
didn't think it was really working.
Well... it was the middle
of the week, I go to my local supermarket where I normally shop for groceries. I go to the checkout lane. I am
somewhat friendly with the cashier, as I shop their regularly. We exchange pleasantries. As she scans my groceries,
she says "did you do something with your
hair". I said "no, why?"
said "I don't know, you look
different". I said jokingly
"different better or different
worse?" She said "Oh...no.....better ". I thanked her
for the compliment. In the back of my mind I was thinking "Nah........couldn't be because of the cream."
Maybe she was just being nice.
Well.......cut to the end
of the third week, and I was going to see the results. I took a snapshot of myself and wanted to see the difference
from three weeks ago.
The difference was
really amazing. Don't get me wrong.....no one was going to
confuse with a college student, nevertheless the difference was definitely noticeable.
It sneaked up on
me!!!! It was one of those things that I
didn't notice on a day to day basis, but gradually Revitol was really working.
Cut to three
months later I'm still using it every single day and the
results have been phenomminal. I haven't looked this good in years.
To give you an idea, I was
at a little social gathering, making small talk with some of the other guests, I was talking with this woman and we
were actually discussing ageism in the workplace, and she asked "how old I was?" I told her
55. She flipped out. She couldn't believe it. I asked her "how old
did you think I was?" She said "I thought you were in your early 40s". Needless to
say, that made my day.
The Verdict Is
I am very happy to tell you that the verdict is in, and it looks like it's the real deal. I wanted to do this Revitol review
for all my fellow ladies who are a little insecure about their age. I know that just like me, you have tried
everything under the sun, so I am glad to tell you that there is something in the
market that actually works!
It's also not just that I
look younger. It's so much more than that:
Younger - I know the old saying:
"You're only as old as you feel", and to a certain extent I do agree with that. The problem is when you look in the
mirror and see wrinkles, it's hard for that not to affect the way
you "feel". But now when I look in the mirror, I see a younger version of me,
and gosh darnit, if that doesn't help me feel younger.
