Posts in Illesha Haywood

I want to start this post by saying a HUGE thank-you to the many wonderful people all over the world who have shown me such kindness and support since last Thursday, 7 June 2012. All the comments, emails, texts, tweets and Facebook messages have been heard and if I haven’t responded to you directly (which I am hoping I have) then please know I am forever appreciative for your time and care in this matter.

For those of you unfamiliar with the story jump back to my post which outlines the events preceding. Today I am going to update you because I owe it to you guys for helping me voice my unhappiness with the original situation.

After the story ran on Thursday evening, there was not much I could do other than put that post up. I knew that Friday would be my only chance to get some answers before majority of Australia began their long weekend. First thing that morning, I spoke with a publicist and lawyer for some advise before I began my journey to trying find out what happened. Why was I in it?

One of my best shots. No really, I love it.....

A number of my lovely Australian readers alerted me tonight to a story that displayed my blog during a feature regarding Australian aesthetician, Dr Illesha Haywood from Paramedical Skin Clinic in Melbourne. As many of you would know, I did a review of the Jet Peel treatment way back in 2010 and it would seem that due to many of the comments I received on that post, it drew some attention when one of our national TV news programs were researching the good doctor.

I am writing this post for a few reasons, most of which is to have my say as I was never contacted by the network, the producer or the journalist investigating the story. Obviously I have no qualms with them displaying my blog, but what I do have problems with is that they highlighted certain statements that actually do not appear in the post or in the comments section AT ALL. In my mind, this is misrepresentation of my website and of me, and I want to have my say.

To start, let’s take a little look at the story that ran on the TV show, Today Tonight.

Last week I was lucky enough to be offered a chance to try out a new skin treatment called ‘Jet Peel’. I thought the name sounded awfully painful, like some sort of turbo charged jet engine filled with acid. Obviously thinking that made me a tad hesitant on whether to give it a go or not. Luckily my shallowness kicked in and told me to go for it. Continue Reading
