With serious technology behind them, a new wave of "cosmeceuticals" is designed to appeal as much to men as to women.
"I had anecdotal evidence from people who used QMS products that they worked - that their friends, hairdressers and colleagues said they looked younger. The only way of-course would be to test the stuff myself.
The area around my eyes in particular looked as though it belonged to another person; the fissured appearance of the corners, those inaptly named laugh-lines corresponding to a lifetime of hilarity that, strangely enough, I cannot recall, were smoothed away, with only the faintest craquelure remaining. The baggy, quilted region beneath the orbital area had improved as well. While still betraying a disappointing tendency to obey the commands of gravity, my skin had surrendered its withered quality and the general sagginess had been ameliorated, too.
The most impressive change was definitely around the eyes, but based on an entirely subjective and unscientific examination of me by me in the mirror, there were other changes, too, that betokened a general improvement in the health of my skin: an elasticity about the cheek that had ceased to behave like a recently vacated bean bag - poking a finger into that area no longer left a dent - and, it may be my imagination, but even the monkey lines seem a little less mocking. Perhaps the surest indicator of some form of cutaneous progress was that the focus of my attention on my ageing skin slowly began to shift from the disappointing assessment of the physiognomy to the effects of time on my hands."
