Here's the backstory. I've i've seen write ups about this cream on your usual spots around the internet and it's a it's a new cream year and a half. Yes and i also think it i i also came to my attention because eva chen mentioned it a hong when we interviewed her and i was like okay. My ears perked up a bit then a few people in my life revealed that they have been using it and have felt it to be life changing <hes> and so again. I was like okay a lifetime. You know you know how it is your ears start getting warm and then you feel you start to feel like you're seeing it everywhere. Yes and then and then and you google it. You read like a million. You know website fashion website articles about it. I've done this with products before then you then you go and look to buy it and then you see see what it costs in your life miller experience with vendors daughter which i use in like <hes>.

Maybe pave which spice spice girls' spice girl was thanking ninety seven so look i said to you hey tori. What if i tried this cream cream for the sake of the pod because the way the cream works. It's created by a german professor. Love the story of the cream. You're of course psycho. A german professor created cream for people dealing with a burn wounds which again that's the origin stories stories intriguing so said hey what if i bought this for the podcast for the pod as research or the listeners yeah not for me no not because because i want to try an expensive product but the waiters kate is doing this for years sacrifice. I am making so look and i said go ahead with a caveat but i'm going to put a caveat on this. Which is you must take a photo of yourself every day that you're using the cream because you're supposed to use the cream and only the cream for twenty seven days. This is true and i cleaned out all my products last night. It was actually kind of nice. I just had face suave and this cream and like my sunscreen contact solution in my cabinet. Like what a relief this is exciting. So have you started. I started at last night. I haven't seen picture will okay. I took one. I took one pre putting it on and then i haven't done my like round today. Don't worry all right coach it but i will say i did post a picture myself in a facebook group. One of our mom face christine and a friend was like your skin looks amazing so i don't know i mean doing like different to you and glowing. I don't i don't wanna be a skeptic about them. I want to believe in the power of the how much is it kate odor. Oh dory. It's too much one bottle that the bottle that i bought which is supposed to last twenty seven days schorr costs one hundred and sixty five dollars. Wow that's a spicy meatball or what yeah it's not something look if we did not heavy skin-care podcast and some shared funds stashed away. Hey where we can try products. Just say we have a slush fund slush fund for products of my own accord but it is a fun conversation topic totally podcast what i was gonna say. Is i feel like your skin has looked great like for a long time. I'm feeling good so while i want to believe even the power of this cream. This is why to take a photo every day. You want the proof because i want the pr. You're an investigative journalist. Look as one of my favorite contestants on the australian reality show instant hotel like to say my gosh. This went so far already the devil's in the details yup. He coined that phrase. He may take a photo every today and look. I don't think magic is going to happen but my but have you ever tried a buzzed about product product where you read like fifty articles. It's like i know ev articles like this changed my life and celebrity swear by and then you try it and it doesn't do anything like yes but i've also had the experience where something does do something like when i tried bill ashiq ricerche p fifty your sweet sweet baby used in quite some time because of pregnancy z. and childbirth essner saying yeah even though it's probably fine. I'm being like super paranoid but that i do think is like a pretty amazing product but yes. I hear you because you don't see when these celebrities are like. I tried this agustinus a spotter cream and look homeys. My skin is like they also have like meals delivered to their house. They have a personal trainer. They like facials every weekday shows every week they blazers yes everywhere so it's just like okay yes. The cream is great but like you also have so much else going on that is making your skin. Look amazing. Yeah yeah probably getting fillers bo talk like which is fine but like don't just all say it's the cream. It's like it's like when celebrities are like i i just you know i just do yoga and that's how i look like this right. I mean come on anyway. I'll get myself wow you. He just stepped on there. I like it. You are spicy today. I'm spiciest so that was my big purchase but then there was a sephora sale very recently. Yes and we should tell people that i had been sort of off the problem. The new product trained for quite some time live very off of it. Yeah i was just like i like what i like. I don't have the time or the energy to start exploring new products and then the sephora sale just real me the and i was like you know what i do. Self-care slash skin-care podcast. I might as well buy some stuff and check it out for the sake of the listeners that's right. You didn't do it for yourself for this. Podcast lists yeah <hes> do you and then you got some stuff. I squeaked in at the last did but you know what happened. I squeaked in the last day like eleven p._m. And then i forgot to use the code for fifteen percent. Oh my god has it ever happened to you where you're like. I'm gonna make big purchase because of a code and then you forget to use it yeah. I had a meltdown so i emailed sephora through their customer service link and the next morning i got the nicest reply from the person who was like we can't add the from a customer sales rep who simply can't add the code to your purchase because purchase already in the system so they added the equivalent of what fifteen percent off obt my purchase fifty percents off of my purchase to the to my account. That's also have this money sitting in my account. That never expires that i can use that i thought that was a very positive customer. Service secure safaris again and not a sponsor of this podcast. Just we're just fans just fan. So what did you buy in. This rebellious purchase plunged plunged. Let me break it down for you so i started with not one but two bottles bottles can what are they jars. No not jars jugs containers pieces of supergroup unseen unseen sunscreen bottles yeah but it comes in like a squeezy to be a two. That's the word you're looking for. I was looking for a two jug. Thank you know not a jug. I really like the sunscreen it goes on so smoothly it is unseen. It blends in really nicely. I use it on my arms and i'm keeping a tube tube of it on my bathroom counters. I remember to put it on my arms and hands. You put it on your face. Well i still use the japanese sunscreen sunscreen. Oh interesting okay but you cannot get safaris so i bought two of those. I also decided that i was going to do a little experiment with me. Solaire water <hes> controversial so what i i did was i bought three different ones one by cowardly one by tart and one by premera which i learned is owned owned by amaury pacific intriguing <hes> it's like they're you know cheaper clean brand. Oh interesting pursing so you're having it's like america's test kitchen but dory's test kitchen for toy story test bathroom does for me. What made you decide to go deep on me slur water well i was out of. I may slayer water which i didn't you know homey. Slur waters are not created equal. I they have a very deep reference for the bioter-. I know which they don't sell before <hes> i had been sort of dabbling. I have a have a travel the size of the bio dermot that i do really like <hes>. I've also really liked simple. I've tried the most recent one. I tried was laroche. Jose didn't didn't love it. I love the scent. I've also tried number. Seven boots number seven me slayer flare water which was fine. I just thought you know what let's mix it up so i bought these three last time. They used the primera. I liked liked it. It's a camomile missile cleansing water and it sounds yeah it was it did feel really nice so i'll i'll report back all of those <hes> the other thing that i was out of was a a day cream and i'd like to use a lightweight gel moisturizer i had been using the tart water gel essence moisturizer and and when i went i was like i like this heart water gel 'sorry tasha gotcha tasha water essence which i liked i mean i liked it enough. I think i recommended a newsletter but i was like you know all things being equal. I do think i liked the bio sants squally and probiotic joe moisturizer just a little better and then you know what i went onto sephora. The tasha was not being sold anymore mysterious odd so i bought another thing of the bioscience and then i thought you know what let me try this other. One by origins called jin zing zing oil free energy boosting gel moisturizer which which also comes in a mini version which i like so i could just sort of try it out. You got the mini. I got the mini. I tried tried this morning. It smells kind of orangey. It's a little thicker than i was expecting but a nice consistency and ice texture sure very smooth so i like it so far i mean i've used at one day so we'll see and then i got another one of my bare minerals primetime eyelid primer which is my favorite. That's an old hat but what's so funny is. I realized i always stock up on it. During the sales i wonder as much makeup purpose i used to so i went into the drawer that i keep like all my extra stuff like my stockpiles and i already had to well my gosh in there so i now now have three so. I need to remind myself that next time the sale"
