Pat me on the back; I didn’t buy ANYTHING except cat food.
But while I was waiting around for Mom and Sara to fill the cart with thises and thats, I thought I’d go over to the cosmetics and prowl around the skincare products to do a little comparison-looking. Several different stores worth of comparison looking, in fact.
I checked out all kinds of name brands and generics, looked at their ingredients, perused their user manuals (I’m not kidding; there were half-ounce bottles of stuff that came in a box the size of a Hostess Twinkie multi-pack, just to house the manual!)
And oh, believe me, I know my Hostess Twinkie multi-packs. . . .
It was the ingredients I was most interested in, and I found a lot of ingredients. More ingredients than you’d find in a recipe for deep-dish Sicilian deluxe supreme pizza, in fact.
Looking on the boxes, jars, bottles, and Twinkie cases, I found octinoxate, ensulizole, octisalate, oxibenzone, vitamide complex, octyl methoxycinnamate, sulfonic acid, phenylbenzimidole, palmitoyl oligopeptide, acetyl hexapeptide 8, gluco-proteins, UREA, Tensine, Reservatrol, and a lot of artificial colors and fragrances. I found mineral oil, mica, glycerin, and petrolatum. I found menthols, citric acids, and crushed leaves of all kinds. There were several high-priced skincare creams that listed no ingredients whatsoever; this puzzled me, as I thought listing the ingredients – ALL of the ingredients – was mandatory.
When I got home, I looked closely at my NuGlow products; every ingredient is listed. This gives me confidence.
I saw nothing on the skincare shelves in any of those stores that mentioned MD3 copper peptides, which leads me to believe even more ardently than I already believed that NuGlow skincare products are the best, the very best, available today.
They’re certainly working for me, and I am my own best judge of what’s making me all pretty.
Come on over and see for yourself. Bring cupcakes.
P.S. Looking at all those chemicals on all those skincare products’ labels reminded me of the day one of my college professors made a lemon merangue pie right in front of our lecture group without using a single piece of actual food. He didn’t bake it, either. Before our eyes, he somehow created a “pie crust”, rolled it out, and spread it in the pan. Then he mixed chemicals in test tubes and beakers, poured the mixture into the crust, let it “set,” and invited us to taste it. It tasted exactly like stale lemon merangue pie. I think of this every time I look at the ingredients on anything I am thinking of buying.
NuGlow understands this “trust factor” that consumers are cultivating, and more so with each passing day. Nuglow lists all the ingredients, keeps all its promises, is odorless, begins to genuinely work on skin quickly, and is 100% guaranteed.
Speaking of which, I saw no skincare product on any of those stores’ shelves that had a 100% guarantee.
One more area in which NuGlow blows all the rest of ’em out of the water.
Mmmm. . . . . Twinkies. . . . .
