a gift of proactiv

actual mall conversation...

"there's the proactiv machine."
"yes, that's cool."
"want me to buy you some to try, my treat?"
"no, i'm trying some organic stuff right now."
"are you sure?"
"yes, i'm 30-ish, i shouldn't need acne medicine."
"betty buys it for her daughter-in-law."
"she mails it to her."
"let's try some."
"not today, thanks."

so guess what just came in the mail? a package from my mother - proactiv. thanks for giving me a push in the right direction, i guess denial is not just a river in egypt...

i still think i am way to old for acne. (and really too old to say "cool" so much) it doesn't seem very green, seeing as i am trying not to put chemicals on my face, but i will try it and keep you posted. change could be good. maybe mothers really do know best, vanessa williams does look great...

i would like to say that i am too old for acne, but unfortunately, i can't. i did use proactiv for some time, and then found acne-free, which cleared my face much better (and you can buy it at walgreens).

although, i never noticed that you need such products!
