The Price of the Perfect Skin

I’ve recently written a post on luxury face creams and writing it makes me think that some women do really have money to burn that they’re willing to purchase creams that is priced between $500-$1100! Crazy I know! But it’s the reality. How does it feel putting on a cream that you know cost something that can feed you for a month and even give you some cash left for shopping? Let me tell you, it feels just the same as when you put even the cheapest Pond’s cream. It’s just a facial cream!

But anyway, they’re pricey for a reason. They have their own benefit.

The Price of the Perfect Skin

It’s All About the Money!

Albeit my undying effort to stick with one range of skincare for more than a month, I keep on failing. Well, there’s this particular month that I actually used the Lancome Visionnaire and SK II Miracle Water combination, religiously, for almost 2 months! Love the result to death that I keep sticking by it. Need I repeat again that my problem has always been about drying skin, dullness, hyperpigmentation which then leads to a completely tired looking face at times. With this combination, I found my skin looked miraculously healthier, more supple and it’s actually glowing from within.

But then I got tired with it! All I want is a simple routine, where the face cream would do all the goodness in the world to make your skin looks pretty with not much effort. Hold on, I said it wrong, I mean healthy 🙂

Enter the luxurious creams, that definitely made me want to bang my head against the wall upon hearing its prices. I’ve just got to try them! I mean, how good can they be? So, I tried the Menard Authent that is priced at around $1,200 (!) which all I can say is that, I don’t see why I would need them now but I can see why people who already have problem would love it. Don’t see immediate result as well. Only that I don’t need to pile on different type of skincare to achieve my healthy skin look. Another cream that I tried is the SK II LXP cream, it live up to my expectation of being utterly moisturizing and gives me a healthy and supple skin without any help from other products! At the rate of my current skin, I’m happy enough with SK II LXP that is priced at around $250. Even the price of that sounds silly, don’t you think?

Raysa on Mother’s Day

This post is long overdue, but it’s better late than never.

On Mother’s day, all the mothers at Raysa’s school were invited to see the performances prepared by the kids and got the luxury of ‘being served’ by the kids. It’s a go to school with your mom kind of thing.

When I got inside Raysa’s class, all the pictures of the mothers were hanging from the ceiling in some kind of crafts that the kids’ created. Along with the picture the kids written a happy Mother’s day note there and their mother’s hobby. Raysa written mine as ‘work’. I find it funny and true, because my daughter know how I enjoy my work so much because I’m actually doing what I love. On top of that, Raysa love visiting me in my office because she enjoys the environment so much. She sees it as a positive thing, rather than a negative one of me being unavailable for her because of work.

When I drop her off at home after school that day, I told her I’m going to the office after ward, what she said was she want to go to the office with me because she love work too.

I think she picked that up because I never really dread going to work, I always look happy even when I have to work late or even in the weekend because I’m enjoying it and I’m putting all of my positive energy into it. Another thing is, I always stress to her that work is one of those thing that can be marked as necessity, just like school. You don’t necessarily have to love it, but you still got to do it. But if you enjoy it, you’ll love every moment there.
