Those anti ageing creams annoy me cos they never use the type of woman they're trying to appeal to.
No point advertising anti wrinkle cream for a 50 year old but using a 20 year old model instead.

Well they're not miracle creams.... although that's a completely different misadvertising scam right there where they're actually called "Miracle creams". No cream will turn a 50 year old into a 20 year old.

At best they'll turn a 50 year old who looks 60, back into a 50 year old.

Anti aging creams don't work. I put some face cream that claimed to take ten years on my 9 year old niece and she was still there afterwards.

Of course, we can't know for sure what actual age the model is.
She might be 50. Even 60 years old.

Maybe this cream really works.

Yes, and the others don’t lecture us on so called “toxic masculinity”.

Not sure if its true but I read before that those anti ageing creams are basically factor 50 sun block that stops UV rays ageing your skin. But once marketed as anti ageing the price of it goes way up compared to regular sun block. Call it 'Norwegian Formula' or some such guff and you can double the profits again.

Slightly different but I think it's very cheeky when Aldi compare 2 trolleys, their's full of own brand products and the Tesco trolley is all branded goods.


Then in small writing at the bottom "Own brand products may be available in Tesco"
