Default pressure for extras

I am going on my 5th cruise on carnival this month and the only gripe I have is the pressure that I feel for extras. For example when I went in for a facial, I could not enjoy it because I was constantly being shown creams and other products that would help make my skin look better ect. I would love to go in for a relaxing massage but I am hesitant as I don't want to hear about any extras they have.
Any suggestions??

Tell them you don't want to hear about extras.

That's why I don't go to the spas there. But you can try by telling them in advance that you don't want to hear about it like Rick mentioned.

i don't know about you, but when it comes to a massage, i just sort of "zone" out what they are saying,listen to the music and just relax. They will try to push the products on you at the end of your masage when you are totally relaxed and your brain has turned to mush. Just say thank you for a wonderful massage, and start to get up and get dressed.
