Today on the way to the store, the thought of finally having great results and beautiful youthful skin after this little miracle serum that I massage onto my skin makes me eager to buy it even more. Once I am ready to choose the right serum for myself I see so many of those little bottles with droppers and cute little ampules and the fast thought running through my head of how I am going to choose the right one doesn’t seem to stop… Well, taking deep breath’s while reading labels with different names, content and claim what it’s supposed to do. I notice that there are also different consistencies: gel, emulsions and oils. Yikes, I did not expect that ;), but I won’t give up, I know that I really, really want healthy and radiant skin that will make everyone wonder what is my secret :)... With my best smile I ask the gorgeous lady if I can try them and if she might possibly know which ones are the most popular? My excitement is raising up again as there is only a couple of products left to choose from that make me closer to finding the perfect one. So I try them on my hand and notice the reaction to my skin ( it is light, absorbs quickly which I like, but it leaves my skin tight which makes me feel uncomfortable… hmmm, let’s try the next one. The consistency leaves a film on my skin that I don’t really like. Next ,I feel an interesting sensation that kind of tingles. It’s probably too strong for me, I thought. I asked for the next one, the consistency is light and absorbs quickly, my skin feels smooth and finally it has the glow I am looking for- wow this has to be it and the content of Vitamin C and Retinol is the best choice so I am taking it !!!
Three days later…
I woke up in the morning and as I was heading to the bathroom I noticed my skin feeling extremely tight. I look in the mirror and see red spots and flakiness. OMG!!! What did I do to myself!!! The whole entire house woke up an hour too early because of my scream. Within second I see them all standing in doorway asking me what happened. Well, what could I say, nothing I had a bad dream… lol. As they all headed back to their bed I grabbed the little miracle serum and carefully re-read the directions on the label to see if there was anything I missed. I couldn’t find anything. I massaged the serum onto clean skin. Hmmm, I did everything I was supposed to do. Ahh, on the bright side at least the bottle was cute, so I placed it in my collection of products that i can’t use (hopefully my husband won't notice it expanding). ;P
