Oh, It Ticks!

I know you have been anxiously awaiting the results of my product testing.

In case you’ve forgotten, I tested Garnier’s Ultra-Lift Daily Targeted Wrinkle Treatment on one side of my face for five weeks. The results? Oh, you will be surprised!  (more…)

But Does it Really Keep on Ticking?

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

You remember those old commercials, where a Timex watch gets really put through the ringer – stomped on, thrown across the room you name it – but nonetheless, it keeps on working.
