With anti-aging products overflowing the supermarkets’ and pharmacists’ shelves, and advertisements with models with perfect skin make it easy for consumers to get lost in the care for the age spots and skin lines. And of course, these products are not as cheap as we think.
But this is not characteristic for Annick Rbsn. She has no problem with ignoring the determined salesperson who tries to persuade her into buying these creams. In her Facebook post she explains that while she was trying to reach the gate at Calgary International Airport, she was addressed by a salesperson from the skin care shop. He offered a free natural soap, which she later discovered to be a trick for something else.
Then he started complimenting her that she looked ten years younger than her age and that she was beautiful without makeup. Of course, he had other intentions with the compliments. He tried to sell her the skin creams and serums with advice to take care of her skin at the very moment because the wrinkles would be deeper at age of 45.
Annick clarified that she is happy with the look of her skin and is of no need of those creams. Her face looked tired and the bags under her eyes are a result of the care of her baby.
Not listening to what she had said, the salesman continued to persuade her to buy a cream. But she doesn’t give up too easily, though. Annick pointed out to him that she isn’t afraid of getting old because growing old with the person you love is the best thing in life. Therefore she and her husband are not hesitant about reaching old age together.
As he tried to give her lower prices, they draw the attention of the customers in the market. But Rbsn not attracted even by the lower prices, said to him that her skin looked good and it will look good in future because she sees nothing wrong with aging and accepts it as a privilege. Than added that she doesn’t want or need the creams and her husband and children love her face, therefore she will keep it as it is.
