Its free!

Oh I love a bargain. And I love free stuff even more than cheap stuff. For example I love the crappy pens you get from Cancer research and the Red Cross (sometimes with postcards) that are meant to emotionally blackmail you into giving them money. I am immune to that cheap trick.

But I am not immune to the clever ways of shop assistants. I went into a store on Saturday to ask about their moisturisers, I was willing to part with some cash within reason. I left with an appointment with a 'skin specialist' who will assess my skin and then probably try (and even more probably succeed) to sell me not just a moisturiser but also a scrub, some soap stuff, some other creams and maybe some treatments as well. The appointment is complimentary so I am feeling I am getting something for free and am very happy. Will check wallet after visit to validate that feeling.

My friend H got a complimentary Laser treatment from her dermatologist and of course said yes not thinking any more about it or looking into what it actuall means. When she arrived at the clinic a lady was leaving and was asked by the staff if she wanted to book another appointment; she said 'No, I have finished this set of treatments and dont want to go through this again.' Hmmm...

H then got taken into a room and the handmaid/ nurse / skin lady in waiting told her she would put some local anasthetic on her face and let it start working for 10 minutes before the treatment started, to minimise the pain. Hmmm....

Finally Mr Dermatologist arrives and starts the process. H was told it would feel like being pinged on the face with rubber bands. She told me it was not pleasant. Especially not on the edges where the helper had missed a bit with the cream. At the end she was asked if she wanted to book a next session. She wisely declined.

I am hoping my skin assessment on Saturday will turn out to be as relaxing and glam as I have imagined it in my head and if I see anyone with rubber bands looking for a victim to ping in the face I shall leave.
