Daily Mail: What Were You Thinking?
Right, well today the Daily Mail saw fit to award Adonia Leg Tone Serum their ‘Best Miracle Worker’ product of 2009. I’m honestly aghast about this. I featured Adonia Leg Tone Serum on my blog back last April and was literally inundated with emails and comments to the blog – to the point that Adonia issued a statement to my blog for publication. The main complaints were that a) it didn’t work (and Adonia uses ‘plant stem cell’ technology which is virtually an unprovable area, and you’d be very lucky to find a scientist prepared to back up any plant stem cell claims because plants replicating any functions on the human body is questionable – part of Adonia’s claim is that they ‘reawaken and reactive your own dormant and weakened skin stem cells), b) orders weren’t being fulfilled, c) anyone from the UK ordering from their site had a long wait for product and then a nice little sting of up to £16 at customs when it did actually arrive, and d) they weren’t fulfilling their refund promise. At that time, I hadn’t used Adonia, but nearly a year on, now I have. And, guess what? My cellulite stayed resolutely the same. Now, I’m very aware that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another, and also that there can be unreasonable expectation placed on a product. Personally, I can’t see what ‘Miracle’ Adonia is performing other than to upset a record number of customers. At the time, back in April, I alerted their UK press office to the problems that customers were having, and yet the complaints (over 50 – and bear in mind my tiny readership compared to the Daily Mail’s) still rolled in (and still occasionally do!).
If you extensively research on the internet, which I do, there are many positive comments regarding Adonia, and as many again that are negative, but the entire Adonia encounter was soured for me further by rogue comments to my blog that talked about ‘people getting impatient with their ugly legs’ needing to use Adonia. When – with the wonder of technology I tracked the source of these abusive comments, guess where they came from – Arizona, and now guess where Adonia is based.
So, ladies, if any proof were needed that The Daily Mail’s idea of a Miracle Product is far removed from mine, please do feel free to check out the feature in the Femail section today.
