This is how they get you hooked

So remember I bought some new Lancome lipstick a few weeks ago?
Well in my free package that came with purchasing so much from Lancome was a sample jar of some anti-wrinkle cream (you know those bags filled with sample sizes you get).
Now that I'm at the double 4 I have to really be careful with wrinkles (and grey hair).
Yes, I am older.
Anyway, I started using this sample and I've really begun to love it!
My skin is smoother and firmer and the cream is really miraculous.
Since my sample jar is almost empty I thought I would go on the internet and price it before I went to Macy's to buy some more.
And I'm thinking, "Oh this will probably put me back $50 or so."
The thing with marketing is they give you a sample and get you hooked.
Once you're hooked they know you'll pay any price for your fix.

Well this Lancome cream costs.......
(hold onto your hats)
That's a pair of shoes (or darn close to it)!
It seems to deliver on its promises:
Immediately: Fine lines and wrinkles appear diminished.
In 4 weeks, significantly reduce the number, depth and size of deep surface wrinkles. In fact, over 72% of women showed a visible reduction of wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the mouth corners, and the lips.
But my goodness, what a price.

Those people are so evil. I know. My weakness is Bath and Body Works. I get their emails and can't resist all the good wall flowers, shower gels, lotions and other smelly goods. Hmmm. Moonlight Path. At least it's cheaper than the cream.
