Right before my daughter returned to college this year, we took a luxurious shopping excursion to Dallas. We checked into the Westin at the Galleria Mall, and spent an entire weekend shopping, dining, and got completely caught up on a summer’s worth of girl talk.
Of course, the rationale I used for this big shopping spree was it was Texas’ annual tax-free shopping weekend for all back-to-school Moms. Even though my daughter will be my second child who turns a bona fide adult this year, I happily took advantage of an excuse to go shopppping.*
Most of my weekend budget was consumed in a NY minute by my 20-year old daughter, but we both serendipitously found ourselves at the Clinique counter at Macy’s at one point. I’ve been a loyal Clinique customer for over 30 years, and have now turned her into one. We both had to restock on some of our favorite skin and cosmetic products when one of the salespeople started talking to me about my skin issues. Of course, I braced for the upsell, but the longer he spoke, I actually started to listen. He showed me a product that he promised would actually remove these (atrocious) dark (witch-like) spots I had started to see accumulating on my face in the past year.
The product is subtly named: Clinique Dark Spot Corrector.
After only a few weeks (am I sounding like an infomercial yet?), I really could not believe the dark spots were simply vanishing. It’s been about six weeks since I purchased the magic goop, and hafta say… they’re almost gone.
Shame on me for being so cynical. (Science rules!)
I was telling this story at our office, and said I was going to blog about it because the product is just that good. I then found out that Estee Lauder (parent company of Clinique) is one of our clients, so I suppose I need to disclose that.
But, trust me, client or no client. This product is pretty amazing.
You’re lucky if you’re not old enough for the dreaded Dalmatianization of your face, but if you are… definitely plunk down the $50 for this miracle goop. It will make a believer out of you too.
*I spent about a thousand dollars all weekend to save about fifty in state tax on clothing. These Texans are no dopes.
