Honore Des Pres: I Love Carrots Eau de Parfum

Honore Des Pres: I Love Carrots Eau de Parfum
Absolutely nothing to do with Yes To Carrots, this quirky fragrance brand has come up with some very innovative packaging…to-go cups. As is always the case with French fragrances, there is something of a wordy story to the origins and inspiration, but it is inspired apparantly by cooking, freezing and cooking again carrots from organic... Read More

Puma Animagical Eau de Toilette

Puma Animagical Eau de Toilette
Proctor & Gamble aren’t pretending that they’re bringing out a sophisticated men’s fragrance with this product – it’s firmly aimed at a younger market and priced accordingly. However, there is something about the garish packaging that reminds me of a Bette Midler circa 1980’s broad shouldered dress and it makes me wonder if its only... Read More

The Results Are In! Jeanne Piaubert Speed Dieting & One Week Anti-Wrinkle Lip Treatment

The Results Are In! Jeanne Piaubert Speed Dieting & One Week Anti-Wrinkle Lip Treatment

Blogger Publishing Issues

I’ve had several comments asking me to update on certain products – but because of Blogger issues, not helped by Hotmail issues as well, that don’t allow me to see what posts you are commenting on and therefore asking to be updated. If you do want updates, please ask again and highlight what product it... Read More

Babor Lifting Fluids

Babor Lifting Fluids
I’ve posted about Babor before, but having just received samples of the ‘Lifting’ set, I’m reminded again how absolutely lovely they are. The set I have consists of 3 Collagen booster fluids and 4 3D Lifting fluids. To be honest, I’m not really expecting a lifting effect, but the mini doses of collagen leave skin... Read More
