A few weeks ago, I received some free samples of Cellcosmet cosmetics from Saks Fifth Avenue. Now I’m addicted.
What I got were the Anti-Stress Mask, the Concentrated Night cream, and the Preventive Day cream, and I loved them all. Cellcosmet is an anti-aging line from Switzerland, and indeed after using the products, my face seemed smoother and less wrinkly.
I wrote earlier that I went to Sak’s to check out the products – and prices – in person. Everything was very expensive. $115 for the mask, $255 for the night cream, and $195 for the day, and yet I was still considering buying, if not all, then at least one of the items.
“It’s like drugs,” I told the salespeople. “You get some free samples, and then you’re addicted.”
They weren’t amused. “It’s your skin,” one said. “It’s important.”
Oh, lighten up.
Although I didn’t buy anything, I walked away with more free samples, including the Activator Gel, which does something or another to your face so that your other products work better. And you know what? I think it works.
It certainly feels damned good, all cool and tingly, and I noticed after the couple of times I used it that my skin looked smoother, tighter, and more even.
It seems more economical to me to pay $95 for something that will make my other, cheaper products work better than to plop down up to $300 for one alternative product.
