I can't wait to look amazing!

I can’t wait to look amazing!

I got a serious bit of advertising in the mail today. DHC is promoting their Deep Cleansing Oil that is pretty much – brace yourselves – olive oil.

All the impurities are out!

Not just any old olive oil, though, super-duper refined olive oil. Oil that is no longer of this earth, but a heavenly elixir that is doing some serious magic to Sherri Simonsen’s face!

Drat her flawless appearance!

The blurb under her full-page bio says that she is 44 and a preschool teacher! I said that to Lloyd as I showed him the picture and he said, “Uh-uh. She is one or the other of those two things.”

Ouch.

It’s true, though. Look at her skin. She’s either a 44-year-old spa owner or she’s a 16-year-old preschool teacher. There’s no way she has children that ask her, “Grandma… I mean Mrs. Sommerer, why are those stripes on your forehead?”

I hate you, Sherri Simonsen.

I have to say that I was on this olive oil kick long ago. Remember? Good times. Still using it ($3.97 a bottle, only on my second bottle), still like it.

I’m glad this 28-page booklet came with samples inside. If this stuff makes me look like my arch-enemy Sherri Simonsen, I’m going to be out $97.50 for the real-deal kit to maintain my loveliness.

They won't recognize me at church!

    “Velvet Skin Coat” sounds like something you’d want for your horse or your dog. I think someone in the Naming Department didn’t think that one through very well.

    I was taught that beauty is more than skin deep. Take heart!

    “Grandma…I mean Mrs. Sommerer…” HA!

    And hey, I didn’t get that cool trial in the mail. I’ll try any samples I get in the mail.

    And I never tried the Olive Oil as a lotion, dang it. I’m going to get some today. But I use the same towel to dry off & then wrap my wet hair in it. Will the oil residue make hair oily?

    Mangia!

      I hardly put any on my face. By the time I’m done using it on my legs and elbows, my hands hardly have anything on them, so I just pat my hands on my face. This brochure says the same thing for its stuff: ‘Put two drops on your palms, rub hands together, then pat on face.’

      Dad, I bet Sherri has really deep skin, too. 😉
