With his twinkly eyes, beatific smile, and a beard that makes you think Christmas has come early, Dr Andrew Weil is the kind of skincare guru you either embrace with open arms or run away from as fast as your legs will carry you.
Until three weeks ago, I would have placed myself firmly in the latter category. But that was before I tried my wife's new face cream.
I've never been much of a cleanse-tone-and-moisturise kind of guy, but I fear there may be no going back. For the first time in ages, I'm comfy in my own skin.
Dr Weil's Mega-Mushroom range, produced by Origins, uses a number of potent fungi to "optimise the skin's energy" and "restore firmness and buoyancy."
Well it works for me, Doc.
