Anti-wrinkle cream advert banned for misleading public

"We concluded the advert was misleading, " said the ASA, which banned the avert and warned the pharmaceutical giant to consult the Committee of Advertising Practice before making any more commercials.
The skin cream, which costs £17.99 for a 50ml tub, claimed to have a patented ingredient which was "clinically proven" to work in eight weeks. But members of the public complained at the small print which stated the product did not give a "physical lift.""
