Hello there, beautifuls! 😍
Many of you might already know The Crystal Tomato – it’s heavily marketed to be a miracle beauty product somewhat… By promising some really awesome benefits for your precious skin. 😌
- Natural Sunscreen
Absolute dream to have when you’re living in tropical Singapore with the unforgiving Sun. Whenever I head out during lunch hour, I can almost hear my skin cells crying in pain.
- Brighten, Lighten and Whiten Complexion
Okay, one of my major wants in a beauty product.
- Reduces Dark Acne Scars, Freckles, Dark Underarms and Age Spots
- Antioxidant Effect and Anti-Inflammatory
I read so many great reviews online about the product on how it practically changed their lives… So I figured, “Okay, must try.”
Even though it’s bloody costly – at about S$170-$190 for a month’s supply! 💸😱
Now Crystal Tomato isn’t readily available – it’s not one of those things you can just head down to a generic drug store and pop into your basket. No, this one needs you to head down to a specific list of authorised sellers.
And I even bought a 3-month supply – because that’s apparently how long it would take for the skin to rejuvenate and really show results!
I puked blood and went to pluck some grass to eat for dinner when I saw my credit card bill that month.
So anyway, yes I know you just want to know, “DID IT WORK??”
😬 We’re getting there.
First month – skin actually got darker! I figured it was part of the purging process?
Second month – skin was clearing up a tad… and the tone went back to my usual colour.
Third month – “Huh? Got difference meh?” was what a friend of mine said. I purposely wanted to meet her because she’s always the one friend who loves to comment on any changes aesthetic-wise.
If I lose weight, she will comment. If I gain weight, she will imply it’s time to cut back. If my skin looks bad, she’ll ask if I’m on my period. If my skin looks radiant, she will ask for my secret or if I’m pregnant.
Yes, THAT kind of friend.
And when I met her, I was almost expecting a, “WOW!! YOUR SKIN!!!” And then a background of fresh sakura leaves will fall around me as I radiate and giggle in delight. 😌 #mecrazy
But when she didn’t say anything for a couple of hours, I just had to ask her if she noticed anything different about my skin. And her reply was, as above, “Huh? Got difference meh?”
😩 😩 😩
To be honest, I didn’t notice any significant change myself and was almost envious of those girls who apparently experienced a whole galaxy of change!
Albeit there were some little benefits here and there – like how it’s an oral sunscreen. And I have 4 cats, so there are mornings when I wake up with a new scratch somewhere. I noticed they healed faster when I took Crystal Tomato. ✌🏻
However all this doesn’t warrant me parking aside about S$200 for it!!! 🙅🏻
Must say I was massively disappointed… I’ve tried other beauty supplements that were worlds cheaper and gave better and more obvious results.
So not topping up my stash of Crystal Tomatoes. My bank account won’t stand for it – my skin won’t vouch for it.
