(WoW)o 🐌🐌

DISCLAIMER: I’VE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AGAINST WOWO!!! 

Spent the whole night reading up about 🐌, the positive and the negative. Okay, I’m just kpo cos afterall, I’m a Singaporean mah. To be honest, it has been raved on my newsfeed everyday but I didn’t show any interest in it until hell breaks loose! 😬

However, my bf bought me a bottle of shampoo to try, just to support his friend. Wah, a small bottle costs $25 lor, I told him, “omg, this is so expensive, I need to use it slowly!” 



TRUE REVIEW 

It doesn’t work on me. In fact, my scalp gets more itchy after using. But I didn’t talk about it at all, cos ‘one size doesn’t fit all’, it didn’t work on me, doesn’t mean that it won’t work on others too. 

I DON’T BELIEVE IN ALL THESE THOUGH

Okay, just like the LED tooth whitening kit (which many of my friends used to sell), I didn’t even bother to click on it. Look what happened now?

No, don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t trust my friends, but I just don’t trust the ‘miracles’ of the product that people claimed. 

I’ve been approached by many to sell all these, be it skincare or consumable products. But I’ve politely rejected all of them. I told them, “I myself need to try and be convinced first. If I can’t even convince myself (to even try), how am I able to convince others?” 

Truth is, I don’t dare.

Yup, even though I used to do reviews on beauty products. Plenty of research were done on each product first, to prevent giving wrong info to readers who trusted me. And I don’t dare to accept any adverts involving facial. Becos hello, my face leh, later rot how? Consumable products are worse, cos some side effects don’t appear instantly. 

I do buy to support friends, but to sell, absolutely NO-NO. It’s impossible to recruit me, so don’t even waste time trying. I’m very adamant on this. 

But don’t worry, I’ll help to promote if I’ve tried and think it’s really good, when I’m free, or when people ask me. (Just like the workshop and spray paint shop, I don’t earn a cent from recommending, but they’re indeed good, so I recommended them to everyone who asked me. This is the genuine ‘words of mouth’.) 

MLM



Well, even though all (not only 🐌 lah) claimed that they’re not MLM, which technically speaking, they’re not cos they don’t function exactly the same way MLM does, but when there’s a tier levels of earning/discount, it’s MLM to me lah! 



My definition of MLM is, making use of people’s credibility and words of mouth, using ‘recruitment’ as the first step and you’ve to pay to join them lor! ðŸ˜‘

Once you’re in, you will strongly promote the products to your own network then after that, recruit ‘downlines’. Your ‘downlines’ will get stocks from you, and the more stocks (got quota one) you order from your ‘upline’, you will be promoted to the next tier, thus cheaper price (likewise for your ‘upline’). Therefore, you’re earning from your lower tier too, no? This cycle will go on and on...

Who earned the most then? Think about it yourself. So, isn’t this considered some kind of MLM too? 🤔

Well, I’ve never trusted any MLM before. I just can’t accept the idea of having to fork out an upfront payment to join them; registeration fee, some called it ‘security deposit’ + starter kit. Siao bo! Pay to work and promote for them? Joke! 😂

❌ Don’t be silly to think that it’s your own business and that’s why you need capital for it. IT IS NOT YOUR OWN BUSINESS, becos you totally have NO control over it. Let’s put it this way, IF one day, something happened to the founder, and the Company suddenly shut down, who are you? Don’t be naive and get fooled by their ‘sweet talks’. They’re nice to you cos you’re helping them to earn money, that’s all! 

DON’T EXAGGERATE! 

Okay, this is the most important point of this post, I guess which is why people are starting to post negative stuffs about it now — don’t claim things that are not true just to sell your products. (In this case, resellers cannot be blamed, unless they know about it!) 

HSA will not (and need not to) test and give approval to sell such products in Singapore, you just have to notify them. So by saying it’s #HSAApproved is very misleading. 

It’s just like IF I tell people I’m Case Trust Accreditted (when I’m not) to gain assurance by making use of the authority, it’s not right. #ifyougetwhatimean

Be very honest with all the content too. Don’t market it as 100% natural/organic/vegan (made of plants only, this is what my bf was told) and it’s safe for everyone (including preggies and babies) when it does contain chemicals. Who knows if someone is allergy to that one particular chemical leh? 

Yes, it’s easier to sell with such claims cos most people will trust what you claimed without researching. But there will be people who have all the time in the world to dig out all the infos. 

NOTE TO CONSUMERS

Regardless of what products/brands, you have to try it at your own risk. There’s no 100% assurance on everything. 

Once again, I’ve to emphasise, I’ve nothing against 🐌 and I’m not saying that their products are toxic/harmful becos it did show positive results on some people, just unfortunately, not me! 

P/S: What’s your take on this? Are you using 🐌🐌 too? If yes, did it works?!

  1. It doesn’t work on me too. My scalp got more itchy and cause peeling dry patches on scalp after using. Due to the itchiness, when scratch will have alots of white white falling on shoulder. Is like nothing can cure it? Even seeing doctor but those medicine didn't help the peeling dry patches to cure at all?
