Miracle 10 AHA Cream
A line of skin-care products created by Frank Lista of Toronto's Plastic Surgery Clinic Inc., Miracle 10 is designed to actively combat signs of aging, including fine lines, dullness and hyperpigmentation as well as acne; the AHA Cream promises to reduce fine lines without dehydrating skin. In 10 hours, you will see noticeable results in smoothness and clarity; in 10 days, visible improvements in discoloration and dullness; in 10 weeks, diminished wrinkles and pores.
How it works
Lactic acid and vitamin E work as gentle exfoliators to retexture skin without irritation. AHA is especially effective for people with dry and/or sensitive skin.
How to use it
Apply to cleansed face and neck in the morning. (Slight stinging may occur, but it will subside quickly.)
The bottom line
If I were filming an infomercial for this product, I'd want my actors to say things like, "What a miracle!" "It's a 10!" "I had an AHA moment!" And not just because the brand and product names lend themselves so graciously to such glib advertising rhetoric, but because in this infomercial, they would actually be true. After two weeks of using this cream, my dry, winter-ravaged skin is brightened, amply moisturized and visibly smoother. It gives me hydration that lasts all day, with or without makeup, while providing me with a natural glow that never turns shiny or greasy.
"Dr. Lista is an artista!" (Okay, I'll stop now.)
