Shock horror – I’m starting the New Year without any resolutions. Am I the only one who feels bombarded by diets and exercise programmes? And haven’t we all got a lot of leftover cakes and cheeses to finish up? I had rather too much homemade Stilton and Broccoli soup last night and I don’t want to think about the calorie count on that.
On the positive side, over the Christmas weeks I have been testing out This Works no wrinkles wonder essence which debuts at the end of the month and I love it. It was inspired by all my travelling to the Far East (an Essence is a regular part of a skin care regime in Korea, China and Japan) and I find it both uncomplicated and enhancing at the same time.
I’m also thrilled that my best friend Pam, who is one of our testers, says she can’t wait to buy it when it comes on the market. She has replaced her former night cream with a dab or two of Wonder Essence and says her (slightly oily) skin is really benefitting. It has an exfoliation without scrubbing action that takes place while you’re sleeping plus a moisturising effect. And now that every product needs to be a multi-tasker, it also tightens pores, balances sebum levels and works at fading age spots.
Exciting too is the prospect of a completely new This Works range, which will launch in spring. This was also inspired in some way by today’s mad, fast-paced lifestyle and my desire for practicality and simplicity in everything. Watch this space…
It is the same with clothes. Who wants to struggle into clothes that are too tight or shoes that are too high? I want to be able to move fast. Hence, how I persuaded myself to buy some flat McQueen boots in the Sale. I made myself believe they were really practical…
Happy New Year to you all.
