I’ve been working at a small local pharmacy here in New York City for 3 weeks now. Along with the every day brands, we sell salon and other high-end products. We have facial cleansers, moisturizers, soaps, perfumes, candles…and we have testers for most of the products.
“You mean, you get to test all those amazing products AND smell like a goddess every time that you go to work?!”
Yes. And yes.
I’ve been trying out as many of the products as I can. Shortly after arriving at work, I get a little pump of some brand and scent of hand lotion. After using the bathroom and washing my hands, I go for something different. I’ve even tried face crèmes on my hands to get a feel for their consistency, smell, and (if any) noticeable effects.
I’ve also staked out my favorite scented soaps and candles and (more importantly) I’ve been able to keep myself from blowing my paychecks on everything I want in the store. I think I deserve a present for my strength. Palmarosa Wild Mint candle by Caldrea, anyone?
No, Holliday, focus.
Anyways, by the end of my workdays, I have been able to test out at least 10 different skincare products. So I figured I could make a mini-series out of my experiences with them. I’m doing this with the hopes that it will help those looking at trying the products while introducing others to an entirely new line of products.
Oh and I’ve tried the whole ‘splash your face with water like they do on the commercials’ and found that it is a very impractical way to wash your face. Cheers to skincare!
