One Brave Woman Protests Against Anti-Aging Products

It’s stressful being a woman.

If we’re not worrying about our clothes, make-up, salary or family and friends it’s something else. And according to society, we’re supposed to go around our whole lives with baby-smooth skin showing no effects of time or work at all.

So, that’s why this one woman’s Facebook rant has really impressed us and inspired us to stand our ground from now on. You go, girl!

Canadian woman Annick Robinson was passing through Calgeary airport when she was harassed by one salesman to buy anti-aging products.

In a Facebook post, Annick explained how the (slightly awkward) conversation went:

"Man: "Let me guess your age..."

Me: "I look my age and that's ok actually."

Man: unsure how to handle that.. "let me show you our face serum, because if you aren't careful to maintain your skin now, these wrinkles on your face will get much deeper, by 45, creams won't help anymore."

Ouch! We probably would've walked away at this point, however, Annick continued to probe this man's unusual opinion.

"Me: "what's wrong with a woman looking 40?"

Man: "Well let's talk about the bags under your eyes, and smile lines, my eye cream could improve those in 15-minutes."

Me: "What's wrong with my eyes? I have a miracle baby at home and haven't slept in 2 years, so if I have bags I am grateful to have them, and my husband and I laugh a lot. Those are his fault. He loves how I look... I don't think I need your cream."

We could only in the same situation that we would have as much balls as Annick did. Fair play!
