Last week in my holiday Birchbox, I received a sample of Skin & Co Truffle Serum. (If you don’t know about Birchbox, you should. Click HERE.) Skin & Co Truffle Serum claims to plump the skin with hydration, fight free radicals, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In short, it’s described as a miracle product containing pure extracts of Tuber Melanosporu, a truffle extract with one of the most potent anti-oxidants ever unearthed.
Sounds like something whipped up in Herbology Class at Hogwarts…
I used my new wonder cream yesterday.
I LOVED the velvety texture, and after only one day, I immediately felt Forty Years Younger.
But not from the way it made my skin feel or look.
From the smell.
In 1970, Santa brought me a tiny doll who lived inside a plastic flower. When I opened the petals to her home, she was hidden inside with arms outstretched and a smile on her cherubic face. Her hair smelled like violets. Or truffle extract?
I don’t recall her name and have not thought of her in decades—yet the aroma of this lotion unlocked a flood of memories.

For a moment, I was eight years old again.
Time travel should be added to the serum’s list of amazing results.
