Borba — Facelift in a bottle?


So the maker of Borba Nutraceuticals would have you believe.

According to the Sephora website, Beverly Hills cosmetics developer "Scott Vincent Borba has found the Fountain of Youth and bottled it."

Drink two bottles a day, he says, and you'll see skin improvements in seven days.

"Technologically advanced, calorie and carbohydrate free, and guaranteed to make your skin glow from within."

Hey, that's precisely how I'd describe bookofjoe and the results of regular visits — and they sure won't cost you $30 for a six-day (12 bottles) supply, which is what the Borba treatment will set you back.

You be the judge.

Let me warn you, though, that if you decide to explore the Borba website, make sure you turn off the volume on your computer first — especially if you're at work.

It's truly one of the most annoying sites I've come across in a while, and I do see an awful lot of them.

Jennifer Huget investigated the science of drinkable skin care for a story which appeared in this past Tuesday's Washington Post Health section.
