I’m a sucker for a good ad. If the right ad were to come along promising to help me grow a tail, I’d probably buy it if it were pretty/convincing enough (also I’ve always thought it’d be cool if we had one…it would be like a third arm AND a mood indicator that doesn’t lie!)
What’s funny about that is, my day job is in marketing so I’m completely familiar with the tactics/thought process behind the persuasive writing. And yet… It’s only 33 easy payment of $19.95!!
When I saw an ad for this Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer I was hooked. I would love to use less foundation and concealer because my skin tone is so even, sign me up! After “signing up” by handing the cashier at Target the $20, I took it home eager to see the results (they promise a difference in a week).
I have to be honest, and I really hope no one from those drugstore beauty brands reads this, but I actually liked the fact that it was $20. It always makes me a little leery when a beauty product makes all these grandioso promises, but costs less than lunch. If it were so great…wouldn’t they want to be making more money off of it? And twenty bucks is right in my comfort zone. Not so much that I get a call from the husband, but enough to make me think it will work (just kidding about the call from my husband…he’d address it in person. Just kidding. He’d hire someone to address it).
Now for the part you’ve been waiting for…the results!
Well, I’m still using concealer and foundation. BUT I am using a big less in the area where I had some acne scarring. I did notice that decreasing over time. Did I see results in a week? Meh. That’s so hard to tell, because I don’t know if it’s my brain telling me spots are fading or if it’s actually happening. I’ve only been using it for about two months now, so maybe as time goes on I’ll see a bigger difference.
Regardless, this lotion is nice and light. It soaks right in and has an SPF which is SO CRITICAL. Really, the use of all caps there is called for. And even if it is just the power of suggestion, I’m ok with that.
