We recently recruited 100 MNers to join the UltraLift Challenge and put UltraLift to the test. In addition, 10 lucky MNers (who also tested UltraLift) were invited to an exclusive Q&A session with Davina McCall, Garnier UltraLift brand Ambassador. Davina answered all sorts of questions submitted by MNers - including: what she thinks of UltraLift, how she manages her beauty routine within her busy schedule and lots more. You can see some pictures and info from the event here

So what is the UltraLift Challenge? The UltraLift Challenge is an activity created by Garnier to allow women across the country to test UltraLift anti-wrinkle cream for free* and see the results for themselves against Garnier?s Wrinkle Reader. Last year 18,374 women put UltraLift to the test and 80% saw a visible improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles**.

How can you participate? Garnier is offering free* trial packs containing 14 UltraLift samples and the unique Wrinkle Reader** - find out more by visiting the UltraLift pages on Mumsnet

This thread is for testers to report back on the results they?ve seen from putting UltraLift anti-wrinkle cream to the test and to encourage all MNers to try UltraLift for FREE and see the results for themselves.

So if you were a tester, once you have used the cream for at least 14 days - please share with us all on this thread how you are finding the cream...

-Before starting using the UltraLift - did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
It was very hard to tell what level of wrinkle I had... I will say level 1.

-And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?
I just start to notice about my wrinkles, but I really hope that with the appropriate cream I will be able to remove them and prevent new wrinkles to appear.

-How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
I love the smell. It’s fresh and absorb very easily. It was also smooth on the skin.

-Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
I have notice a whole improvement on my skin face. It is more soft and tight. I did not see any difference with the wrinkle reader.

-Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
I am very likely to use it again for £9.18.

-Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will.

-Any other comments?
The cream felt like a good face moisturizer.
And also thank you for letting me try this product.

Thanks for all the feedback guys - much appreciated. poopoopoo has been selected as the winner of the £100 John Lewis voucher. Well done.

MarmiteButties Tue 03-Jul-12 17:15:30

Was between grade 1 & 2
Wrinkles are irritating more than anything else, they show my age!
I liked the smell and it absorbed really easily on to face.
Yes I noticed a difference was just a 1 after two weeks of use.
I will continue using it certainly at that price, very competitive price, think I paid over £20 last time I bought a similar product.
Will happily recommend this to others.
Thank you for the opportunity to test this and apologies for the lateness of my feedback.

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

Yes I thought I was a 1 but DH said I was a 2 (harumph)

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

Quite annoying but mostly under control

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

I didn't like the smell very much, bit overpowering. It did absorb easily.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

Yes big difference: within 2 days I had aged 10 years and was at least a 4 on the wrinkle reader and had simultaneously developed spots on my cheek. I found it so depressing and embarrassing to look so bad that I stopped using it.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

Never in a million years

~ Would you recommend it to others?

No. But I understand that everyone's skin is different and it might be great for other people.

~ Any other comments?

kimmy2849 Tue 03-Jul-12 16:33:06

I recently tested Garnier UltraLift. It is an amazing cream. It does visibly lift your skin and softens lines. It gave my skin a really healthy glow and made it look healthier. It leaves your skin soft and smooth and absorbs quickly and easily. I would highly recommend this cream and actually have done.

bucksmum Tue 03-Jul-12 10:17:30

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on? I didn't really have any wrinkles but skin was very dry and tired looking
~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character? No real wrinkles but was beginning to feel a bit old and grey and not very polished!
~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily? It was great I really like it. Smelt fab and very easy to absorb
~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader? Yes Definitely look at lot brighter!
~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18. Yes

~ Would you recommend it to others? Yes

~ Any other comments? Love the fact it has an SPF 15

LackaDAISYcal Mon 02-Jul-12 15:51:38

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

Yes I did....No3 around the eyes and No5 on my forehead/at corners of mouth (I obviously frown and scowl more than I laugh!)

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

I'm not really bothered about them, they have grown with me so I see them as just a part of my aging face now.

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

I liked the smell, it was fresh and not too overpowering. The cream felt very silky on my skin and it absorbed easily and didn't leave me feeling greasy.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

I noticed that my skin looked visibly smoother, even after only a few applications, and it felt much smoother and softer as well. Several people commented me on how well I looked after about a week of using it. When I used the reader at the end of the trial, I had gone down to No1 at the eyes and No3 at mouth and forehead, so a visible difference.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

I think that I may continue to use it once my pot has run out, it seems good value.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

I already have when complimented on how well I was looking.

~ Any other comments?

I'm not sure how much the difference was down to just using this cream, as I didn't really have a daily routine as such prior to the trial, so perhaps I would have seen similar results regardless of what cream I was using. Still, my skin looks fresher and feels much nicer to me and others so I am happy with the results. I may try with a cheaper cream for a fortnight and see how it compares before going out and buying more of the Ultra-lift though.

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

Yes, I was on no. 7

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

I hadn't really considered them much - quite like them in a way really. I'm more bothered about the overall condition of my skin, which is good.

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

The cream has hardy any fragrance, which I like. It felt light, non- greasy and was easily absorbed. All good!

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

I didn't notice a difference but after 14 days was on no. 6

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

I may buy it again if I see it on offer. There's not much between it and my usual cream but the usual one is normally cheaper.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Probably not as there was nothing that stood out about it

~ Any other comments?

Wasn't keen on the packaging - looked a bit artificial to me, ie. suggested that the cream would be full of chemicals rather than natural ingredients

CagneyNLacey Fri 29-Jun-12 11:18:00

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

I was a 1-2 on the wrinkle reader, which I think is a really good idea to have with the cream. Not used other wrinkle creams though so not sure if they all have them.

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

I confess that despite being 37 I have never given wrinkles any though and never rewally looked closely at mine. Until now!

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

Wasnt that keen on the smell but it wasnt obnoxiousor anything. It absorbed well and felt fine.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

I think there is a difference actually, lines seem not as deep, but not much difference going by reader.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

Yes, I would use it again.
~ Would you recommend it to others? ~ Any other comments?

Yes I would recommend it to others.

Lucewheel Thu 28-Jun-12 19:53:01

Before starting to use the UltraLift the wrinkle reader and was a six (ouch).
I knew that I had developed my laughter lines but had not realised just how deep they were, this was a bit of a shock. They are a part of me that I would prefer to be less pronounced right now.
I really liked the scent in it and it was very easily absorbed. It was easy to apply and did not leave me with greasy hands or skin.
I did notice a difference on my face especially around my eyes. I applied to my face and then used it as eye cream. Having just checked on the UltraLift reader my laughter lines around my eyes are now between a one and two (yippee!). I noticed this improvement within days of using the ultralift cream.
Yes I will carry on buying and using this product and will recommend it to others.
I really like this product because it is both a face cream and an eye cream in one product that actually works. You also get the benefit around the eyes without any irritation.

Mominatrix Thu 28-Jun-12 12:58:36

~ Prior to starting the UltraLift Challenge, I didn't use any Garnier products. In terms of wrinkle grade, I did not really have any, except for furrow lines on my forehead.
~ My lines did bother me a bit. Although they aren't very noticeable, they seem to deepen anytime I was suffering from a lack of sleep or fatigue.
~ I didn't mind the smell. It was OK smelling in the sense that it was very lightly perfumed, and didn't smell very chemically. It is what I would expect from a cream, and I actually prefer my creams to not have a noticeable smell. I used the night cream, the SPF cream, and the serum. All products absorbed easily, and the combination of the serum and cream left a not unpleasant tingly feeling (I recognised it as the retinoid tingle).
~ Although I didn't change grades on the reader (I wasn't on it to begin with), my skin did feel firmer, the furrow lines were much less noticeable, and I was pleased with the results.
~ I wil continue using the product after it runs out, and will happily recommend it to others.

Sorry for the delay in submitting my feedback - I wrote a epic review last week, then my computer crashed and lost the lot.

First off, a big thank you to Garnier. I was one of the lucky 9 who had tea and scones with Davina, and it was fab smile She was very inspirational and passionate about the importance of a good skincare regime and very enthusiastic about the Garnier products....

Top tips from the day included: always extend your skincare to your neck; it's worth investing in a good facial occasionally; always apply SPF, even in winter; don't smoke; try to get a good nights' sleep, and always smile, even when you're feeling lousy.

We were given a very nice goody bag, which included Ultralift cream with SPF as well as the one without....Confession time: it's summer, and I have stupidly fair skin, so I have been testing the version with SPF. I'm not sure what the point is of having a 'sans SPF' version, although it has been working wonders on my cleavage smile smile smile

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

Somewhere around Grade 1-2, but more concerned about my forehard than eyes. I think the wrinkle reader is a bit limiting.

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

I'm not a huge fan (!) but more interested in damage limitation generally, than worrying about a few lines.

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

I'm not a huge fan of the smell (its a bit chemically) but it's not too strong. The cream feels lovely and light, and absorbs very nicely.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

Not really. I have always followed a thorough skincare regime (and having been using a leading high street chemist's brand of products for several years) and didn't feel the UltraLift cream made any discernable difference.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

Probably not - it is a little bit too much like a lotion, and I prefer a cream that leaves my skin feeling properly moisturised. I'm looking forward to trying the night cream and serum, though, and might continue to use it in combination with those - I didn't want to mess up the trial.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, if they were looking for a fairly light, inexpensive moisturiser.

~ Any other comments?

Just that I think all day creams should have an SPF included smile

Thanks again!

Before starting using the UltraLift, did you use Garnier’s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
I was already using Garnier UltraLift before I started the Mumsnet test (it was on special offer) so had already looked at wrinkle reader. If I’m not smiling, it doesn’t really register. With a bit of a smile, I was on about a 4. (Lesson learned – don’t smile!)

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?
Like many people on here, the eyes aren’t massively a problem area anyway. I have quite a few deeper wrinkles on my forehead. I don’t like them as it is a sign of my age (which I feel particularly as have two children at primary school and a lot of the mums are about ten years younger than I am!) but I have to accept them as part of who I am now (not my character though! What kind of question is that?).

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
I like it. It smells quite nice but not overpowering, the smell doesn’t linger. Feels good on the skin and absorbs pretty quickly. I’ve had problems with creams in the past as I have sensitive skin but my face likes this one.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
I think that my skin is probably a bit smoother since I started using it as I have been using it for a couple of months now. Maybe the wrinkles are slightly reduced, possibly I’ve changed by a grade or so but of course laughing and smiling do not help! And as I’ve commented below, the wrinkle reader really isn’t that helpful or easy to use.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
I will if I find it on offer again (£6 in Morrisons!).

~ Would you recommend it to others?
I would because I do quite like it.

~ Any other comments?
The wrinkle reader is really not very effective. I think that it would be more helpful if you were to use actual images of people’s crow’s feet at differing stages rather than just digitally fiddling with the one image that you have used. I can see that you must have done this to attempt consistency but it just makes it unrealistic to use effectively.

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

About 2-3

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

They were ok but could have been better.

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

I really liked the smell and my skin felt lovely and soft afterwards. It did absorb easily.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

I didn't notice any difference really.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

Not really as it wasn't any better that my usual face cream. The price is not bad though.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

If they wanted a fast absorbing base for make-up but not for wrinkles.

~ Any other comments?

Just a thank you for letting me give it a try. I love trying new face products.

aliciaflorrick Tue 26-Jun-12 09:22:01

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

I was probably between a 1 and 2 depending on whether I was smiling when I looked at the chart or not.

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

I only really look in the mirror twice a day when I'm getting washed so they never really bothered me, probably just part of me really.

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

The smell wasn't really that strong, but it did make me think of aftershave when I was putting it on. The cream absorbed into my skin beautifully and I didn't feel greasy afterwards. In my opinion my skin felt hydrated and plumped up all day.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

As I said my skin felt plum and hydrated all day long, not really sure if there was any difference in the wrinkles around my eyes, possibly slightly or it could just have been wishful thinking.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

I think I would prefer it as a night cream, I like to use some kind of day cream that has an SPF in it as I'm not very good at applying individual products.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Well I would recommend it as a nice light day cream, don't know if I could recommend it to someone who was complaining about wrinkles.

~ Any other comments?

Thanks for the opportunity to try it, it certainly wasn't a disaster.

Katielou75 Mon 25-Jun-12 23:06:04

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on? I was only about a 1, so not too bad, really.
~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character? I don't think my wrinkles are that noticeable yet, but I'm definitely starting to notice fine lines around the eyes. I've got one deepish line above my eye that annoys me!
~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
It smells nice and I like the feel of it. I found that it absorbed quite easily and wasn't too greasy.
~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
I thought it felt a lot softer and I liked the feel of it. I don't think it made a great deal of difference to the lines, but they weren't particularly pronounced to begin with. Maybe longer use would make more of a difference.
~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18. I'm not currently working due to an injury, but as soon as I am I will start buying it- it's a little more than I would usually spend but I liked it.
~ Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
~ Any other comments? When I first started using it my I found I got more spots than usual.

nancerama Mon 25-Jun-12 22:57:31

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

I used it, but my wrinkles didn't register. Not because I'm wrinkle free, just because my eyes aren't a problem area. Between my eyes is a bigger problem - too many stern looks, I fear.

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

New - until recently I didn't look my age at all, but a 1 year old and a year of sleepless nights has aged me irreparably.
~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

It was really easy to apply, and smoothed on beautifully - didn't feel heavy or sticky. I really didn't like the smell though. It smelled a big cheap and was overpowering. The smell thankfully didn't seem to linger though.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

I didn't notice any improvement in my wrinkles, unfortunately.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

I will continue using the jar, but I don't think I will purchase the cream in future.

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Probably not, although if a friend was keen to take the challenge, I would hand over the remainder of the jar for them to try.

~ Any other comments?

My usual moisturiser has an SPF also. I have become very freckly over the course of this test, even though there has been little sun. Thank you for letting me try this product. It was nice, but I'm not overwhelmed by it.

kaz0223 Mon 25-Jun-12 22:03:55

Before starting using the UltraLift – did you use Garnier’s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
Yes, I used it around my eyes and my crow’s feet measure around about a 1-2 that's according to my husband who I got to check for me.

And how did you feel about your wrinkles? To be honest I am not that bothered about the ones around my eyes it's my frown lines I am really bothered about. I think the ones around my eyes are shallow but much more pronounced on my forhead.
How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
Smelt lovely really delicate lovely on my skin not too thick and just melted into the skin.

Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
It did feel well moisturised,and my skin was nice and soft, however I didn't notice any difference on the reader but that might be due to the fact I am the start of the wrinkle reader.

Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
I do like Garnier products but would always buy when offer because I am such a cheapskate!!!!

Would you recommend it to others?
Yes because I did like it for it's moisturising properties.

I do like Garnier products but like most of the popular brands I have used there hasn't been any proof as far as I am concerned that there is any improvement in wrinkles. I think as women we should just resign ourselves to the fact that they are proof we have lived our lives.

ShipsCat Mon 25-Jun-12 21:49:39

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
I was somewhere between one and two
~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?
Part of me, but a part I'd like to change!
~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
I really don't like the smell. It's a bit chemical, and it was almost as though it was trying to be an unfragranced cream, but wasn't quite, if that makes any sense? It felt very heavy on my skin, but it did seem to absorb quickly.
~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
I haven't really noticed any difference, despite using the cream for slightly more than a fortnight now.
~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
I won't carry on using it, as I prefer a lighter cream, and one with spf in it. The price seems reasonable, but I won't be buying any more when my trial pot runs out.
~ Would you recommend it to others?
I would suggest to them that they do the 14-day challenge before buying it.
~ Any other comments?
It seemed a bit odd that a wrinkle cream didn't have any spf, as I have always thought that the sun is a major factor in the development of wrinkles.

foosty Mon 25-Jun-12 21:44:41

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

I'm not especially wrinkly - just a few lines around my eyes and an ever-deepening number 11 between my eyebrows

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

love my laughter lines, don't really like the 11 though

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

Felt nice - quite rich. Took a while to absorb and I felt it was a bit greasy for daytime use so used it as a night cream too. Found that make-up didn't sit too well on top of it and I looked shiny, which I don't like! So I didn't feel it absorbed brilliantly, no.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

No real difference to my wrinkles but my skin in general looks smoother and kind of plumper, which is nice. I did break out in a few spots on my chin though.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

I'd be much more likely to buy the night version!

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, I think my mum would like it.

~ Any other comments?

The scent actually grew on me but at first it smelt a bit strong and somehow reminded me of suncream. I don't think it needs to be so perfumed.

Thanks for sending me the cream, I enjoyed taking part.

vickipickernicker Mon 25-Jun-12 21:27:24

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
Based on the wrinkle reader I didn't have any wrinkles. So couldn't make a comparison.
~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?
No real wrinkles to describe
~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
The cream smelt horrible - far too strong a smell that lingered for ages. Smelt like very bad perfume. Would have preferred it to have much less or no smell. Cream seemed to sting a little to start with when first used. But did absorb easily and didn't sting after first use.
~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
Face felt smoother but didn't notice any difference on wrinkles.
~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
seems expensive for a small pot.
~ Would you recommend it to others?

The packaging reminds me of hair gel not face cream. The smell of the cream was much too strong and over powering for a face cream.

~ Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?

1 or less. DH also tried it, he's about a 3

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?

Mine - not really noticeable, I'm 36. Wanted to keep them that way. DH is 40 and much more wrinkly due to his work environment. I think his wrinkles are nice, distinguished grin

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?

Absorbed easily, didn't mind the smell but didn't particularly like it either. Felt fine on my skin - DH felt it stung on his, he didn't like it.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?

No difference really but probably because was less than 1 before. DH skin did seem less 'wrinkly' maybe from a 3 to a 2. Skin felt softer and more 'plump'.

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.

Possibly, would prefer different scent though

~ Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, reasonably priced nice cream

~ Any other comments?

Would be great with spf and/or some light foundation/coverage. Would take a step out of beauty routine which is always good time wise.

Ok sorry it's taken me a while to do this but we went on holiday so it all got a little delayed!

Before starting using the UltraLift ? did you use Garnier?s UltraLift Wrinkle reader? What grade were you on?
- I tried to but concluded I don't really have crows feet - a few lines under my eyes but my bigger probem is dark shadows

~ And how did you feel about your wrinkles? New, old, deep, shallow, annoying or part of your character?
- as above, I don't really have too many so not too worried - although becoming more concerned about the ones that are appearing under my eyes

~ How did it smell and how did it feel on your skin? Did it absorb easily?
- I would say it smelled inoffensive - and absorbed very easily.

~ Did you notice a difference on your face? What did you notice? Was any difference noticeable against the UltraLift wrinkle reader?
- not really, but it could be because I didn't have a huge amount of wrinkles to start with - it didn't seem to make a difference to my shadows. Although a lot of people have been saying I look "well" I put that down to my Florida sun tan rather than the cream...

~ Do you think you will carry on using it? The RRP is £9.18.
- I will for now but not sure I would chose it above any other cream. To be honest there are so many creams on the market I can't see why I would chose one over another - if anything I will do it on price, what' s on offer etc

~ Would you recommend it to others
- not at the moment but I will carry on using it and see what happens.
