Apparently in many parts of the world subscribing to a beauty service where each month you get a box of makeup goodies at your front step is a popular thing. Sister Edibe in Australia has chronicled her own experiences with these services…glossy box? Goodie Box? something like that…anyway, here stateside, I can honestly say Ive never heard of such programs. Maybe they exist and perhaps I live under a rock! I really don’t know.
But I digress, one sister posted about her “haul” and this caught my eye and slightly turned my stomach and then visions of the multitides of skin-whitener creams which crowded Saudi and Iranian grocery store and pharmacy shelves came flooding back…
All I can say is…ewwwwwww on so many levels! Oh, wait…its made in France from Swiss Placenta…all is well with the world!!!
Honestly, now that Ive seen placenta up close and personal, thanks to my rotations on the Labor & Delivery floor for clinical…I don’t think I could bring myself to even use such a thing…as if the whole…whiten your skin, self-hatred thing isn’t bad enough. I’m not just talking out of my ears about this, I am tired of anytime I am in Iran having random women on the street asking me what skin whitener I use to which I say…uh, its called genetics khanoom! Love what God gave ya, dont hate on yourself!
