When I was sent the beautifully packaged Olay Regenerist line from the folks at P&G by Campaigns PR (thanks Diet!) I couldn't persuade my mom to send it over to me here in the US. First, the line came with a pretty Aranaz bag and my mom has been buying Aranaz bags for the longest time. Whenever my dad had official visits to heads of state when he was in the military service, my mom would send him off with pretty beaded Aranaz bags to give to the wives! So yes, the wives of the Sultan of Brunei and the wife of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia have Aranaz bags in their closet!
Second, we've grown up with Olay. My Lola Imas used it exclusively, and while my mom would end up experimenting with various brands, Olay has been a constant on her beauty bureau. I happily gave the package to my mom for her to enjoy.
So when we got another package full of P&G goodies (Pantene, Head & Shoulders and Olay products), I told my mom to send it over to me, since my sister Trina will be coming over this February.
Guess what she tells me. She says, I should just buy here since I can get the same products here anyway. Then she goes on to share, that all her friends have complimented her on her skin and she generously parted with her secret -- it's all because she started using Olay Regenerist. So no, she will be keeping everything in the package for herself, jeez!
Well, when my mom won't give up something, not even for me - her first born, then it's proof that she's got something good! Hahaha! Thanks P&G and Campaigns PR!
