Nu Skin

In year 2003, I went to USA for business and pleasure. I spent almost 7 weeks in USA. When I came back, I noticed that the side of my face, just below the ears, started to develop acne. It became bad. My friends asked what happened. AR claimed that it is the dryness of the country that contributed to this outbreak. He recommended a famous skin doctor near where I work. This skin doctor has treated AR, bahija, rotitelur and a lot of our friends. I went to see her. The doctor said that I have oily skin and that I should stop using whatever cleanser I was using (at that time, I was using Dove and Kao Biore).

She gave me a cleanser and an acne lotion. And her cleanser was not those expensive ones that most of the girls used. My cleanser cost me RM20 and it lasts for 3 months! How’s that for economy? It’s even cheaper than Kao Biore.

Within a year, I was healed!

I remember thinking to myself that I don’t have to use the acme lotion anymore. I remember putting the spare lotion aside.

Then something happened. My friends noticed that I had dry skins on the cheek and the jaw. They claimed that it is the cleanser I was using. It’s too dry they said. Bahija and Miss Peace tried it before and they were horrified that it was so dry.

Then Alpinesis also commented that my skin was peeling. He sells Nu Skin part time and recommended me the moisturizer and a scrub. He has been trying to ask me to try the products but I always say no. I mean, in my mind, the skin specialist, a doctor, should be a better judge than these multi-level pyramid scheme salesman. Right? I mean, people studied to be a doctor… what’s more a skin specialist (which meant a few more years of study and practice). I told him that the doctor said I have oily skin. Why should I need moisturizer. He said trust him. He quoted many of his customers’ testimonials. Bla… bla...

But, after hearing all these negative things, I succumbed to the multi-level-pyramid scheme product.

I tried Nu Skin moisturizer for a month. Instead of moisturizing me, the damn thing causes outbreak! I was healed except for some dry skin. Now, I am back to 2003 era. Pimples are popping out at the side of my face!

Quickly I stopped using the product and consulted the skin doctor. She reprimanded me for using the moisturizer. I said but I have dry skin. Obviously it could be your cleanser too. She said the dry-ness is due to being in hot sun or being in an a/c room, not the cleanser. I believe her.

I curse the day I succumbed to a multi-level product. Say NO to Nu Skin! Celaka product.
