A nine-year-old girl has disappeared after trying a moisturising cream that makes you ten years younger.
Suffolk Police are now searching for Lilly Fisher, who was last seen in her bedroom on Friday.
Worried mum Lorraine Fisher, 34, was surprised the cream worked.
“You normally take these things with a pinch of salt, but for once the moisturising cream did what it said on the tin.”
Police said Lilly had been given the cream on her birthday and was keen to try it out.
She wiped the moisturiser on her face and lost ten years instantly.
A police spokesman said: “We are appealing for everyone to keep an eye out for Lilly. When the cream wears off, she’ll reappear again.”
The beauty business is being urged to make it clear that people aged nine and under should not use cream that makes you ten years younger.
Retail expert Steve Walshe said: “With Christmas approaching, we’d urge parents to study products closely before buying for their children.”
Ms Fisher believes Lilly is still around her home in Woodbridge, Suffolk somewhere. She just doesn’t know where.
“The cream makers, Wrinkle Wise, say the effects should wear off in a few more days.”
The news comes just months after it was revealed the World Hide and Seek Champion had been found dead in a cupboard.
