I have finally placed my order for a facial gadget named La Mente today, after pondering over and over for years. Though the name itself suggests the product is from somewhere in Europe, it is a100% Japanese brand – designed and made in Japan. It is very common for you to come across with an item with Europe origin in Japan, say Rim Hair, it tells you how much Japs here adore western countries. It can be a very weird experience if you’re from overseas and you see a foreigner appear on your TV screen in every travel / documentary type of programme you watch, though every single speech has been translated into Japanese.
Ok… we’re getting too far away from the topic today aren’t we? The reason I have chosen La Mente over millions of other brands on the market is because it’s got raving reviews from people of different countries over years! I have never seen/ heard anything bad about the product to be very honest, though it is priced (RRP) at about 400 US dollars. With this price, it can be one of the most pricey home skin treatment gadget on the market. Even for other well-known brands such as Panasonic, Ye man, they won’t cost you over 300 US dollars. Anyways, my La Mente cost me around $250!!
Let’s see how it goes when it arrives later this week.
