Skincare - Body - La Prairie - Cellular Energizing Body Spray

I was sprayed by the La Prairie saleswoman when I was buying something else from her! I didn’t like it so I didn’t get it. 15 minutes later I sniffed my wrist and fell in love with it! Going back next Friday for 1 because it is my 68th birthday.
P.S. After she sprayed me, she offered it to my husband and he ran! He doesn’t use any smellies which is great as we don’t clash!

Skincare - Unlisted Brand - Biovene Barcelona Pink Peel-Off Face Mask

This face mask is so good! It is gooey and you never should put any near you eyebrows or hairline. Apply to a clean wet face and wait for about 40 minutes then once it has dried, find a spot to gently peel back and then peel the mask off. I have to say it is not the most painless thing to do but your skin will be so smooth, soft and glowing after. It does remove some facial hair! I have very …Read more

It is a lovely perfume but not for me! I am so disappointed as I have wanted to try this for ages. There is a note in it that doesn’t agree with me so a friend has got it for her birthday! She loves it! I bought a 10ml bottle from Amazon uk so it only cost £15. I wish I wasn’t addicted to perfume, it can be an expensive habit but a lovely one!

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coromandel Les Exclusifs de Chanel Eau de Parfum

Just got this as a 10ml decant from eBay. I paid £23.00 & p&p. It is one of the most beautiful perfumes I have ever had. I am not a perfume analyst, I either would wear it or I wouldn’t. This I would wear all the time.
It is about £175 for 75ml. It really is expensive but exquisite. I may have detected the slightest touch of no.5 but only a touch. Maybe a touch of caraway having …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

I really wanted this product to work as I had seen good reviews. Sadly, perhaps because of my age (66)
It dried my skin and looked flakey. I use loads of moisturiser every day and use Cetaphil to clean my skin.
I never use soap or water on my face. Of course, there isn’t a 1 brand fits all of any product so I will go back to my Ordinary cheap foundation! It is very subtle and always …

La Prairie. I used to think what idiot would pay such outrageous prices for products when there are countless cheaper treatments out there. I have become one of those idiots.
I tried the eye contour cream, was hooked, then tried this serum. What a difference a few days made. In my defense, I bought it from FundGrube.es with a big discount and free p&p. They throw in several assorted …

Fragrances - Yves Saint Laurent - Black Opium Eau de Parfum

I got a sample of Black Opium, tried it, loved it! It is a sweet coffee vanilla blend - to my untrained nose anyway! I paid €57 for a 50ml edp bottle. The bottle is decorative but I keep my perfumes in a drawer so that doesn’t matter.
I have never had a YSL perfume before and am impressed! I don’t usually go for sweet scents but this is fun!

Unbelievable results in just 4 days! Got it from FundGrube.es. Just ordered another. I paid €72.40. It is very expensive but you get what you pay for. You only need a tiny amount.
I have tried many eye gels and creams as I am in my late 60s and the eye area goes first! I feel like I have struck gold with this cream.

Lovely fresh scent, sorry, not au fait with describing perfumes but I would say it is an exceptional quality edp for any occasion.
Just ordered another bottle from 50mls in Italy at a great price. I want to make sure I have a good stock of it!
I usually use Clive Christian and Sisley so I like good perfume! I am just useless at describing notes etc!

This serum is amazing. It smells gorgeous. I mix 3 - 4 drops with boots protect & perfect serum and it has made such a difference to my skin. I would not be without this little bottle of magic!
