Photo Hunt: Hands

      12 Comments on Photo Hunt: Hands

Photo Hunt’s Theme is Hands. Presenting my daughter’s hands. Now you might ask, why are there tapes stuck on her hands?

See, I brought along my daughter, her friend Nikki and Jane to a Clinique Coffee at Rustans Makati upon the invitation of May, an old friend who is now Clinique Marketing Manager. It’s always fun to check out these skin-care consultations because one can pick up very useful tips. No, I didn’t plan to buy anything that afternoon.

The Clinique Consultant tested their 3-Step Skin care system on my daughter’s right hand while the left hand was left untreated.

When the lady lifted the tape on her left hand, dead skin stuck to the tape while the other tape was completely clear of sediments.

Now, I don’t buy Clinique products for myself. I reserve that for my daughter who gets very bad acne breakouts, partially caused by the cheap cosmetics she used. My sister, who is a dermatologist, recommended that she ditch the Johnson and Johnson’s face powders and use Clinique’s non-comodegenic, 100% fragrance-free pressed powders instead. That’s how it has always been.

Now look what happened?

I ended up buying 3,900 pesos worth of Clinique products and got a Clinique Bonus Pack as extra. All because I got sold by the hand test. I am just making that as an excuse but I really needed a replacement for my facial skin care.

  • hehehe…you can be the next clinique endorser. Anyways, I also would vouch for clinique’s reputation. I had some skin problems last winter. My skin was breaking out and worse it looks like it is cracking.

    I hope you, my entry is also up. I hope you check it out

  • Well told and explained. Quality always shows, doesn’t it?

  • yes i tot those look like bandages.

  • You sure do have a knack for writing about controversial stuff even to the most personal of the kind. It sure does bring awareness to readers the difference of these commercialized and non-commercialized products that could very much bring about different reactions to the body.

    Gotta thank my mom for bringing me to this blog. She just started exploring about blogs but she does know her way with little help from me.

  • I initially thought she had bandages. Glad to know those are for skin test purposes. Enjoy your new beauty products. I’m out of Clinique concealer. Have to buy another tube soon.

    I really like those “effects of the product as compared to no product at all” campaigns. And I like them even more when they’re shown in the real life so that there’s no possibility of trickery. When someone shows me how something works, I’m way more likely to buy it.
