I had my first glycolic peel today. It iched like a cast iron mofo. But sweet banjos, does it look good. My skin that is. My skin looks bitchin'. It's supple-looking and the groove that had been forming on my forehead is lighter. Apparently you're supposed to do about six of them for six weeks to get the fullest effect. I don't know if I'll be doing that yet. They're $40 a pop. $240 on frivolous skin care for a month and a half? A few years ago I'd totally do it. Now I'm trying to be more financially responsible.
Of course, a few years ago I didn't have the burgeoning wrinkles and fine lines I do now. Not that I've become a raisin the past few years, I've just noticed some subtle changes. Age is threatening to creep onto my face. It's already begun its dark dealings on my hair and now it's going for my skin. And I've mentioned this before: I'm mad-ass protective about my skin.
The reason I finally decided to go for a glycolic peel is because a Toronto deal came up for $19 and I couldn't resist a skin treatment for so cheap. I've just joined about half a dozen deal sites that sell discounted awesomeness all over the city. This was my first purchase and I'm sold.
I'm a sucker for spa stuff. If something might be good for my skin, I pretty much want to do it. Call it vanity, call it a vice, call it foolish, I don't care. I loves me some skin care. I've been fantasizing about facials and body scrubs for months. With these daily deals I might actually get a crack at some spa goodness for something I can afford.
Also on my radar is discounted maid service, excursions and massage. Certainly paints a pampered princess, doesn't it? Take me out, rub me, and clean up my mess! And for very little money!
Just for the record, I'm on FabFind, LivingSocial, Groupon, Dealsharing, StealTheDeal, Wag Jag and Buytopia. I'd link them, but I'm tired and that's what Google is for, yo.
