That should be illegal unless they can prove their claims.

Believe it or not all this was in a tailoring supplies shop in the CCC called Al Hadhramy. I went with OD who was looking for some material and while she was talking to the shopkeeper I noticed all these soaps next to the cash register. I was having a blast going through them and laughing out loud. Then I started to take pictures of them and he was looking at me like I was the biggest freak he's ever seen.

Amusing where they position such products ! Next to the counter !!!

I was looking for some organza bags which I was told were sold there, then Mr.Muscati here discovers these soaps and starts laughing so hard. Ofcourse I pretended that I didn't know him :)

Then he kept picking them up and saying to me: "Wahahaha, look at this one.. wahaha.. breast enlargment!!!" And then proceeded to take pics while the poor Indian man tried his best to ignore him and talk to me.

What I want to know is, why do they sell stuff like this in a shop that sells tailoring supplies??

Well, at least they entertained Mux, since I had to literally beg him to stop at CCC for a bit!

haha i've heard of these products and seen them in numerous shops, but i could never stand there and take pics of them! believe it or not i even saw a few of these products and more in mecca last august when we went to perform 3umara. i even saw ur all natural Viagra's in this little stores maybe only less then a .5 km away from the 7aram (the mosque). i couldnt help but laugh.

well where else are u guaranteed the customer will see ur products? near the counter! why else do the supermarkets put all their candy and sugar at the counters, so even if u manage to lure ur kids away from the main candy aisle, u arent safe at the counter, its all a giant conspiracy against us consumers. hahaha

lol Muscati, you would have a ball in that store they used to have in Wadi Center. It had every cream, soap, lotion and gell for anything a woman might want to do to her body. I believe its closed now, which is probably a good thing.

OD, I can imagine your embarassment! :p

Yes Yes kaza should test this and report the results. If it does not work she should sue or at least demand a refund and payment for her waisted time ... or more accurate busted time!
