Recently I was shopping silk for my family, and since I used to work with Lilysilk I was receiving a lot of promotional emails about them. One of the more interesting items I saw was something they called “Beauty Cocoons”.
Now, being a man, I didn’t really care much for beauty – aside from the occasional Vaseline smearing on my face when I’m heading out in winter, but somehow these caught my attention. I was thinking of getting some for my girlfriend before I discovered, to my pleasant surprise, that Lilysilk included a sample of 10 cocoons in the pillowcase bundle I got from them. Free stuff is always welcome.
Now, my girlfriend was out of town and curiosity got the better of me, so I decided to give the cocoons a try (hey, gotta be the gentleman and taste the poison right). So I did what I was instructed. After soaking the cocoons in lukewarm water for about a minute, the initially hard cocoons became soft. I then tried wrapping one around my finger and messaged my face with it…
Well, to be honest with you, I really didn’t feel that much of a difference, which I suppose is to be expected. My girlfriend just scoffed when she heard I was expecting difference with a single use. Anyways, she’s really into this kind of stuff and spends a royalty on beauty products regularly, so naturally she went on to try the rest of the cocoons… and went on further to buy another 200 after a week’s usage. According to her, the cocoons were able to remove stuff that even her deep cleaning facial cleaners could not, blackheads and all and I believe her – she does look more refreshed after she started using these cocoons.
I’ll ask her to post something afterwards regarding her experience with these cocoons. First-person account count for more than my bystander experience after all, and in the meanwhile I’m going to do a bit of research on these cocoons and why they work.
See you soon.
