A lovely spring day…
"It looked like any other skin care line, but it offered something for puffy eyes. “Yeah, like it’s gonna work,” I thought skeptically, “but what the heck. Let’s give it a try.”
There I was at the Bramalea City Centre on a fine spring day, enjoying my day off, browsing, taking in various products vendors had set up. The ‘puffy eyes’ product had caught my eye, and I decided to purchase it. Little did I know that this chance encounter with Albina’s skincare line would revolutionize not only my own care but also that of my grown daughters. This happened because as I was purchasing the anti-puffiness eye gel, I was told that gift certificates for Albina’s many services were also available. The prices were reasonable, and Albina’s home (from which she runs her spa), was coincidentally just blocks from my home. Not being able to think of a reason not to do it, I purchased a gift certificate for a facial.
When a few weeks later I kept my appointment, I was welcomed into Albina’s home by one of her assistants on her first day on the job. What I expected was a pleasant facial – what I got was much more than that. Not only was the young lady’s manner lovely and professional, her expertise was impressive. While not pushing the products she was using for the facial, she answered all my questions thoughtfully and was able to advise which products I should use and how to apply them.
During the facial, I was quite impressed with what appeared to be the lack of harshness and very ‘velvety feel’ of all the products, but what totally amazed me was the effect they had on my skin. My skin has never been very problematic, other than being sensitive and dry in spots, but being in my fifties, I didn’t think it could be improved much. After all, in the past I had had facials and had tried various products – both expensive and inexpensive – but, as far as I was concerned, none of them were impressive.
That day I purchased some skin care products – cleanser, toner, day cream – and have never again used as much as a drop from another skincare line. Not only did the products lack any harshness, but they left my ‘old’ skin velvety smooth. Being totally sold on the products, I went back for more facials and more products. On my third visit, I finally was treated to a facial by Albina herself and that turned out to be another small miracle. Of course, her products were amazing, she is a very healing, giving and knowledgeable individual. With each visit, I learned a little bit more about this impressive young woman, and about her wonderful skincare line. And my skin kept on improving…
It was almost too good to be true – all of Albina’s claims proved to be true and then some. Being totally impressed, something I very seldom am, I proceeded to get rid of all the other skin care products I have ever used and began using the entire line – eye serum, night cream, scrub, masque, and blemish cream. I regularly brag about Albina’s line to anyone who would listen.
I also became very excited to have my twenty-something daughters experience Albina’s facials and start using her products. They, living out of town, were not able to do it until the summer, but when they finally did, they also became total and complete converts. My older daughter has at times had some skin problems especially during winter and/or stressful times. During the first year using Albina’s line, she has continually marveled at how well her skin was doing and was especially impressed with its condition and appearance during the harsh winter season. My younger daughter has always had flawless skin, but she was also totally impressed with the products. Neither has touched another skin care line since. When they call, they often drop hints that they are low on products and would appreciate care packages. Nothing thrills me more than to know that this wonderful line is being enjoyed and appreciated by the three of us.
I still feel blessed that on that lovely spring day I just happened to be at the Bramalea City Centre, and that I discovered Albina’s amazing line. Not only did I get introduced to products that have no equal, but I feel as if I’ve made a wonderful friend. Thank you Albina for sharing your talents with us all!"
