Sometime in Jan 2007…
After walking around Times Square, dead tired, I wanted to reach the monorail train station ASAP. I was stopped by a Malay girl. She pitched something and I glanced at the booth (there were several booths having beauty/accessories fair). Lots of small white plastic bottles with purple wordings and logo arranged neatly on the table, most of them in a pack of 3 inside a sealable plastic bag. Then she grabbed my hand and pulled me to the front, then she promoted this product.
She said more than asked, “Nak cuba.”
She applied Dempo Snow on my hand and explained about the usage of the products non-stop. “Ah, tu bang saya. Tengok sekarang kulit dia merah-merah cantik, kan? Dulu dia banyak jerawat.” She pointed a man who looked older than her 10 years. Indeed, he had the bright pink tanned skin on his face. Like a drunk man.
Trying to get on my side, she tried to speak in Cantonese and Mandarin for some skin problems terms but I couldn’t get what she meant. Chinese languages are complex. 1 spoken word has 4 tones, each with different meanings (and character spelling).
“Boleh guna sebagai mask juga. Biar dia kering, lepas tu sembur air sedikit. Sikit saja cukup. Guna kain untuk dab. Sapu 1 hala. Ha… nampak tak, yang tu kulit mati.”
“Sekarang, ada promotion. Kalau beli 1 pek – ada 3 dalam,” she grabbed a pack, “dan percuma 1 botol. 1 pek RM##.”
“1 botol saja?”
“RM##. Tapi kalau awak ambil pek, lagi baik. Boleh guna lama. Ni pasti berkesan. Nanti muka dan kulit sangat cantik.”
The price listed on the sticker of the bottles – RM15. It’s something like Hazeline Snow but with cheaper looking packaging.
“Tak mau la. Tak cukup duit. Saya cuba 1 dulu.”
“OK, awak beli 2, saya bagi awak 1 percuma lah.”
“Ha? Mengapa?” I was shocked.
“Saya nak ambil commission.”
“Banyak ke commission?”
“Err.. ada la..”
“OK la. Saya ambil dua.”
Hehe. My Buy 2 free 1 is cheaper than Buy 3 in 1 pack free 1.
I have been using it for a month, everyday – if I could remember it. My face still have pimples around the chin. During that Jan, I had pimples on my forehead but not on my chin – ate too much biscuits even before CNY hoho. My legs still have scar marks.
As for removing the dead cells, the mask dries up and when you sweep over it (hard & repeatedly), the dead cells come off together with the dried mask. Afterwards, the skin does seem smoother although not fairer.
I still have 2 more bottles to go. I have to say, the effects are very mild.
It’s from Indonesia?
It’s distributed by Am’Co Trading in Sungai Petani, Kedah (as printed on the sticker).
According to the promoter, “Carrefour ada jual ni.”
