DFW Gets Proactiv(e)

I was just about to miss my connecting flight at the Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport (en route home to see my family), but I just *had* to stop an snap a picture of this….a tractor-trailer sized vending machine that sold nothing but Proactiv Solution products. For those of you who don’t regularly watch infomercials at 3:00am, as I do, Proactiv is the company that sells all the all of the cleansers and creams responsible for transforming Jessica Simpson’s skin from pizza-face to fabulous in a few short months (or so she says), and the one that gave Lindsay Lohan just the confidence she needed to continue partying herself into drug-induced stupor and yet another DUI arrest last month. Pretty powerful stuff, no?

Anyway, I was baffled as to why Proactiv would place a very expensive machine in the terminal of the Dallas Airport, but my very wise sister (who’s a marketing genius, really) suggested that its the perfect place to sell face wash and anti-wrinkle cream. After those ritzy Dallas ladies get the expensive toiletries revoked at security, they probably wouldn’t think twice about dropping $60-100 to replace them.

Hope this is just the start of more beauty-related vending machines. I’d love to be able to replace my L’oreal mascara and Frizz-Ease hair mousse just as easily as I can grab a Diet Coke.
