We're all obsessed with keeping a healthy, youthful, fresh-out-of-the-uterus glow when it comes to our skin. And skin care companies are here to help. They put decades of time and research into coming up with the best ways to iron out those pesky creases. How else could they come up with such impressive sounding products?  Gamma Tocopherol—Ultra hydrating glycerin—Cellactive Folic Acid...

Wait...  Are those different from Vitamin E and regular glycerin and folic acid?  They must be... right?  It's not like the skin care companies would just try to trick us with fancy made-up words...

Any skin care commercial you've ever seen

This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves. I have a really hard time watching commercials for any beauty product (coupled with the fact that I have and idea what they are charging for their age-defying technology).

What the sweet peppered F%$! is "Aqualia Anti-Ox"??

In any case - I am glad others begin to question how complete their education was whenever a new compound that reverses time is advertised by Vichy.

Testify.
