7-Minute Beauty Wonders

I swear there's a market research study somewhere that says the number 7 has magical powers for customers. Think about it--from "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" toThe average doctor visit today is 7 minutes Seven Seas Salad Dressings, there's something with that number. So it struck me when a number of beautifiers came to my attention lately with one thing in common: all claim to show results in 7 minutes.

Interestingly enough, there's a book out by Dr. Marisa Weiss, president and founder of breastcancer.org, called "7 Minutes"--because that's apparently the length of today's average doctor visit. Hmm--maybe there's something there--if professional treatment takes 7 minutes, surely it should be the OTC benchmark, right? Regardless, these 4 have adopted the timeframe and if you've got the time (7 minutes, of course) this is what you'll get (according to the companies, of course):

1. Athena Organics Athena 7-Minute Lift
