Soap Sell

Well ... never one to resist a good buy in the medina, this morning I came upon a bar of Lady Diana Virginity Soap, sitting on the same shelf as those perennial favourites: Pretty Woman Bust Soap for Under-Developed Breasts (promisingly has coconuts on the cover) and Miss Beauty Acne Whitening Lobster Soap (with an equally promising zit-free crustacean). Since I am homeward bound tomorrow for a few weeks of R & R, I thought, what better gift for Mr. Cat in Rabat than a "touched for the very first time" virgin - even if it is one who, like Madonna, is rather questionably renewed. With a bar of soap. But won't he be thrilled!

Now according to the box, this "safe, mild & gentle" soap not only "clears out normal accumulations" (?) but (to quote the song) make "me feel shiny and new".

Directions for Use (insert sic's as necessary ~ CinR):

Uses Lady Diana Virginity Soap to tighten vaginal muscle and clean your secret area free of unpleasant odor. Use regularly twice daily, in the morning and night or as often as needed for more confidence and great feeling like a virgin.

Needless to say, I snatched a box.

Many people feel that their acne is overly embarrassing and
unmanageable. I have read story after story of heartache, especially
from teens that endure heartless bullying from schoolmates. There are
so many different remedies and medications. What most people fail to
realise is that each individual has a different biological makeup and
what works for one person may not work for everyone. In some cases
certain acne treatment can adversely affect already irritated skin.
This further causes unnecessary embarrassment and frustration to an
already uncomfortable situation.
Propaganda fuels misconceptions about different so-called remedies and
even causes. The idea that chocolate and oily food causes acne. When in
truth, makeup, unhealthy skin and even perspiration can cause acne.
All of these factors affect the skin. But even your skin makeup can
affect your skin and create back acne, scalp acne, large assesses or
ingrown hair. There is an acne questionnaire done by a company called
Skinmed that will help to diagnose acne problems through a series of
questions, and then it n recommends the best acne treatment for each
Teen acne is typically the most difficult to diagnose because of
hormonal considerations, but there is a special area meant just for
teen acne that has a completely different set of rules when running the
formula that determines the best medications or treatments. In some
cases simple changes in hygiene and daily washing is all that it takes.
The site also has a free offer on acne facial cleanser that is made up
of a three step process. The primary reason most teens, especially boys
tend to have more problems with chronic acne is because of a lack of
simply washing their face regularly. So this treatment is free is a way
to create a healthy daily routine, while gently healing the skin to
prevent acne scarring brought on as a result of squeezing the sores.
Once daily cleaning is practices, and hormonal issues are taken into
consideration, a proper treatment regiment can be highly affective.
At the end of the day most acne, even teen acne , can be eliminated
quickly and permanently with the right motivation. After all, we all
want to be beautiful don’t we?
