A Sucker-Free Sunday – 8/28/07

Does not include me.

I am a sucker. I have a very bad tendency to want to try new products and infomercials are my worst enemy. After Lovey and I got done laughing at the infomercial for Hip Hop Abs, I surely went ahead and ordered it. At least it’s not just sitting on the shelf though. I am doing it and it does work as long as you do it. Have I lost any weight? About a pound, but the inches that have come off are way better than the pounds anyways.

So, I have the most luggage ever in the depository under my eyes. It doesn’t matter how much sleep I get or how much water I drink, I always look like I’m either high, almost asleep, or in dire need of sleep. Of course, makeup does wonders, but I’m too lazy for that and I haven’t made it to the store to check out the right shade in the mineral makeup yet. Dermatologist is the next step, but in reality, I don’t think I care enough to go. I’m not picking up any boys or starting up a modeling career since I’m too short.

Well, if there’s a new product out, I’m gonna give it a try. Vanity sneaks out every now and again and I want to be the most beautiful girl in Miami that has her real lips/boobs/hips/ass/hair/fingernails. Wait, according to Lovey, I already am. Whatever. I figured if Oil of Olay came out with something that would put away the suitcases, I’d give it a shot.

And there it is. The eye derma-pod. They stuck some creme in a little pouch that you open by squeezing it and it magically comes out on the sponge at the end. Spread evenly on upper lids and underneath eyes and massage in for one minute per eye. Contains 24 derma-pods, best results if used thrice weekly for 8 weeks. Yup. 8 weeks.

But I’m game. I figure it might help. I have less than two weeks left and I’m slowly finding out that Olay just doesn’t work for everyone. I’m not posting any before and/or after pictures, mainly because I didn’t take any but I’m seriously not seeing any difference here people. No, I take that back, I’m not seeing any positive difference. Is the skin underneath my eyes different from the rest of my face now? Yes, it is, but it looks like, to me, that all this has accomplished is making the wonderful lines under my eyes even freaking deeper! Now there’s just a place for makeup to hide!! Aaargh!

Olay has less than two weeks to change my mind on this, but I just don’t see it happening. Maybe this only works for people who only THINK they have bags under their eyes, not people who actually have them.

Say What?
