Molto strange

14 Jul

Italian pharmacies have pretty much everything you could ever want or need or think about wanting or needing. Yet I was still very surprised to see breast enhancing cream on the pharmacy’s shelves. Pupa, an Italian cosmetics brand, sells a product that is supposed to, when applied regularly, make your breasts rounder and more voluminous and “more elastic.” The packaging is certainly eye-catching, with a big picture of a (round and voluminous and elastic) breast. Is is it even legal to sell something that is so clearly a load of merda?

I was shocked in Italy how prominent cellulite/fat reducing creams are. And people must buy them, because they are EVERYWHERE. I don’t think there are many products like that in America. Our bullshit of choice tends to be miracle pills, probably packed with enough chemicals to kill a baby seal.
