I clutched my only purchase and stand in the queue. A RM135 SKII Facial Cleanser. No matter how the sales promoter try to entice me with ‘buy RM580, get this, buy RM780 get even more’, I kept shaking my head. Nah ah, no way am I going to spend another RM600 on something frivolous.
So, there I was standing in the long line at Parkson Grand. Today is Member’s Day = 5x Bonus Link points, discount 10%, every RM120, get RM10 voucer. Queue was blardy long.
And this clean looking guy about mid 20 stood behind me. The sales promoter of another brand of cosmetics passed him a huge packet of stuffs and freebies.
I thought to myself, “Wah, such a nice boyfriend. Queue for the girlfriend and somemore buy so many items.”
His other male friend came by and off he went to Bobbi Brown counter and start looking at the men skincare.
Then, he came back to the line and whined about buying. His male friend asked why he needs so many when he had just bought a set.
He said something like, “Very good, you know. Professionals use. Aiyer…I feel like buying la. RM850 ONLY. Aiyer…good for my open pores. If I buy now, I get RM450 free gifts. Aiyer…how? Buy or not?”
WTF? Does he really need all those skincare? How much time is he going to need to go through the whole ritual every morning? RM850 ONLY?
I thought men only need soap and water? How many males really go through scrubbing, cleansing, toning, moisturising, mask, whitening and whatever?
Frankly, I don’t think I can enjoy a boyfriend with porcelain facial skin. That would be too much of a competition, isn’t it? Running the fingers through smooth skin won’t be as sexy as touching a rough male skin with stubbles, right?
Males – What is your skincare regime? To put it in your male language – What do you wash your face with?
