Yesterday evening I went to Karstadt, one of Germany's major department stores (when I say major I mean that it is known all over Germany and not that it is especially large or has especially interesting shops...). I already went to that event last year but unforutnately some things changed since then. While last year make-up and manicure were for free you had to pay 5€ for each this year. However that was not the only thing that disappointed me but also the harsh behaviour of one of the consultants. Besides make-up and manicure you could also get various consultations like hair and skin analysis which I both tried. While the lady at the hair analysis was super friendly, the lady from Shiseido, which was responsible for the skin analysis, clearly showed that she entirely disapproved the way me and my friend treat our skin. That would still be okay if she'd simply shown us the "right way" in a friendly tone but one saw clearly that her only goal was to sell some Shiseido products. For example she accused my friend of using the sunbed just because she saw that my friend has dyed blonde hair (the one has nothing to do with the other right?). Furthermore she asked me how I clean my skin and when I spoke of the face brush I use to massage my skin she clearly showed that it was the most stupid thing I could ever do. She asked me what that brush did to my skin and I honestly answered that it made my skin feel softer but she insisted on the fact that the brush would have caused pimples in my face (I was totally pimple-free that evening...). To set and end to this sad story I must say that the Shiseido brush she showed me was indeed much softer and the lady also gave me some samples of face cream which I will try before judging Shiseido but if the products work the same way as the consultants do then they are really aggressive, haha! Now I have never tried Shiseido products before and I don't want to get a bad view on them just because of this lady so I would be really glad if you could tell me if you use and like the products or not. I will definitely keep you updated on the samples I got and on whether I will buy their 21€ face brush or not.
You get my admiration if you read through all of this. Also please excuse the lack of photos, I would have loved to show you more of the event but out of some strange reason I wasn't allowed to take pics in there. Please don't forget to tell me what experiences you made with Shiseido so far!
