We are all suckers. Suckers in the biggest con game in history.
Everyday we paint on our faces, slather on our potions and play make believe that somehow these magic $90 elixirs are a doorway to beauty…..to being loved.
The beauty industry peels the cash out of your wallet with a huge smile on its face, laughing behind your back as they literally steal you blind.
Read this ad for “Bliss…The Youth as we know it”cream from Sephora Age Control section.
An extraordinary age-fighting moisture cream that has it all, including MMP Inhibitors, Wrinkle Reduction Peptides, Visual Facial Fillers, Cellular Respiration Boosters, Hyperdermal Destressors, 7-Day Hydrators, Barrier Repairing Ceramides, Wrinkle Relaxers, Multifruit Complex, and Vitazyme A.
Are you shittin’ me? Tell me what the hell is a cellular Respiration Booster? How about a Hyperdermal Destressor? This is all bullshit ladies, and you are buying it at $79 bucks a pop.
What do I use? Generic Cetaphil. Walmart $2.89.
Listen, we are all going to get old. What is so bad about old? Did you ever ask yourself this question? I like old. My best friends, my parents, my mentors are old. I don’t love and admire them because they are beautiful, or skinny. They are who they are because they listen, they care, they are down to earth, and real.
Not some stretch faced, sun tanned, hard boobed- fake.
HOPE, in a jar. How inspired.
I don’t know about you, but I will pass. My hope is in my heart. And I will grow old gracefully, thank you.
Don’t play this game girls.
Life is too damn short.
