A couple of months ago, a few of my friends and I were complaining about how the varying climate was messing with our hair and skin. Our face washes and such were hoarded with so many chemicals, that a whole batch of high school students could have learnt their chemistry from it. Sudden breakouts on our faces and untamable hair were really taking its toll on our temperament. That’s when my sister in Malaysia invited me over to spend time with her doing all the things that a pair of fun-loving girls can do – shopping, nonsensical gossiping – you know the usual.
That’s how I discovered Paul Penders – a leading natural cosmetology line in Malaysia. On my sisters urging I decided to get a makeover at one of their many exclusive salons. And my oh my, wasn’t the end result worth my time and money!
The changes on my face were so surprising, I kept checking in the mirror a zillion times each day to see if it was real. So what I did next was what you would expect a normal, curious girl to do. I ‘googled’ this amazing brand and I was jumping with joy when I found out that the products – from skincare and haircare to their very own cosmetic line, are all purely organic!
To be honest, I couldn’t have been happier-even if the heavens had started raining chocolates on me. It’s just that chemical-free products, which actually work, are so rare to find. I became so addicted to Paul Penders products that I decided to make a trip to Langkawi Geopark – a group of unspoiled tropical islands – so beautiful that even the word ‘breathtaking’ isn’t enough to describe them. Most of the herbs and natural plants, which go into the products, are taken from these geoparks.
Just before I left the beautiful country of Malaysia I made a quick getaway to the nearest Paul Penders store to take one final look at the brand that had boosted my confidence and made me wear my attitude in style. And then the most predictable thing happened. I found myself indulging in some of the absolutely enthralling creations that the store had to offer – mineral foundation blush for various complexions and lipsticks in spectrum infinite.
But my favourite among it all are the little pots of mineral eye shadows. If the term ‘fake beauty out of pots and jars’ came into your mind, stop fretting. Atleast we’re safe from all those wretched spots and zits that other chemical-based makeup induce.
Naturally, things got me thinking. I was definitely going to run out of my finite little supply of products that I had acquired at the Malaysian store. The prospect of going back to experimenting with other stuff brought me down a little bit. Get what I mean?
So when I found out that Harcourts Pharmaceuticals was teaming up with Paul Penders I was beyond overjoyed. I couldn’t help thinking that my wish had come true. If you are a girl-or a woman for that matter – whose constant worry about your appearance and the effect of chemicals on you have wiped the smile from your lovely face, then I suggest you put it back in place right away. Change is on its way!
What’s more, if you’re a worried mom looking for soft and gentle natural products for your precious little babies, Paul Penders has some amazing shampoos, shower gels and lotions for the rugrats. As for you, you can opt for the ‘Firmer Curves’ cream, the ‘Cell Renewal Serum’ and much, much more.
The Paul Penders range is to be launched in Sri Lanka at a grand event shortly. If you’re still not convinced log onto www.paulpenders.com to find out more. Or better yet, ask someone who has already reaped the benefits. But remember the best way to witness the change is to try it on yourself.
