I am such a procrastinator. But thank you for reminding me that I should be doing an update on the Pycnogenol RX GOLD Super Strength which I have bought awhile ago (ok, not really AWHILE… actually quite some time back).
I have already finished the 2 bottles which I bought during a promotion at Nature’s Farm. I took it regularly, one tablet a day. After about 1 week, my bowel movements seem more regular… managed to poop everyday. But then after a few weeks, it became irregular again, so I’m not sure if it’s the Pycnogenol or my diet that helped with the regular bowel movements before. LOL… ok a bit gross to talk about bowels. Let’s move on.
For the hefty price tag at SGD$323 a bottle (for regular price without promotion), I honestly do not think it had showed that much of a result. I mean, for that kind of price, I would expect to have at least 2 of the following improvements:
1) Soft dewy glowing skin that even babies will envy it
2) Strong healthy eyes that won’t get tired even after watching 12 hours of tv
3) Not have any other aged spots on my body
4) Regular periods that are pain-free
… but sad to say, I didn’t see any visible improvements.
It could be that the 2 bottles of Pycnogenol are not enough for it to work, but come on… … … the price is heavy, so I would expect it to give me some good results even after ONE bottle, rightttttttt. Besides, it’s RX GOLD Super Strength lehhhhh~~~~~ and it costs $323 a bottle at regular price… so it better be good.
Well, I guess the Pycnogenol has been very hyped up by advertisements & the internet, etc. Just becuz some random French maritime pine bark extract got scrutinized by some researchers doesn’t mean that it will work for everyone. And so wat if it has some kind of international patent… … *moody moody*… (ok, getting a bit sour here becuz I spent over 300 dollars & did not get supermodel-worthy glowing skin or have pain-free regular periods).
After I finished the 2 bottles of Pycnogenol, I had very disgruntedly decided to try out other kinds of supplements… like Aloe Vera Gel, Flaxseed Oil, Vitamin C, Cranberries, etc etc.
And you know what??? They are CHEAPER & more effective! Plus, I can purchase like… 5 bottles of other supplements with the 300 dollars. LOL (sounds so cheapskate, but for a better cause)
I’m also wondering if any of you have tried this Pycnogenol as well? If so, did it give you any results? Or am I the only unlucky one.
So for those of you who have been curious about this product, at least now you know that it did not work for one person in this world. Me.
