A new 'miracle' cream claims to smooth out wrinkles in seconds -- but is it too good to be true?

Maybe.

A VIDEO SHOWING a new “miracle cream” removing a woman’s wrinkles in just seconds is going viral — but is it too good to be true?

In the video posted on Facebook, a woman applies an anti-wrinkle cream called Jeunesse Instantly Ageless to her eyes and dries her skin with a fan.

And within seconds, the wrinkles appear to be gone.

Other online demos appear to show similar results.

The company behind the cream promises that the cream will restore your skin to its optimum appearance, and attributes it all to a secret ingredient.

The revolutionary ingredient is argireline: a peptide that works like botox—without the needles.

What is argireline, you say?

Lipotec, the Barcelona-based laboratory behind argireline, describes the substance as “the first peptide to reduce expression lines”.

This molecular cosmetic achieves the same, the relax of the muscles responsible for the formation of expression lines.

So, is the cream any use or is it all too be good to true?

Well, the Amazon reviews aren’t exactly glowing.

Did this work to minimize my wrinkles? No. I didn’t notice any change whatsoever. Since I have 25 vials (what was I thinking? I should’ve just forked over the 8 bucks for a sample) I’ll continue to use it daily. Perhaps that’s the trick? When I run out under no circumstances will I buy this again.

Meanwhile, other positive reviews praised the cream for its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of bags under the eyes.

It doesn’t look as though the negative feedback has harmed the sales anyway as the website states that it’s currently sold out due to a “sudden surge in demand”.
