A Non-Update On Mario Badescu Cleanser (or: How To Annoy A Blogger)



Remember when I contacted Mario Badescu for some clarifications regarding the ingredients in their green (and apparently edible) Enzyme Cleansing Gel?

The next day, my hit counter showed a visit from someone at Mario Badescu. How did they get here? Not from the link in my email signature. The person did a search on monomides, probably trying to find the answer to my little chemistry question, but only found my blog. A nice Google page rank would do that. But apparently, the answer wasn't found in my original post, and the customer service rep must have given up on the issue, because I never got a reply.

What I receive instead is spam. I never asked to have Mario Badescu newsletter sent to my blog email address (I'm not talking about press releases, what they send me is the regular pushy stuff that I already get in my other email). I am not amused.

  2. Ooops....that's not cool.

    I get TONS of spam and it's very irritating. Probably has to do with someone having my email grouped together with other people's when mailing and not bothering to make it Bcc.
    Which is a shame, but the deed is done.
