My sister and I attended the Power To Achieve 3 day event in London last weekend and on arrival at Euston station, I couldn’t resist popping into Boots for a little mooch…. Has anyone ever gone into Boots or Superdrug and NOT bought something? My basket fills up very quickly as I spot the different ‘anti ageing’ lotions and potions, which usually cost a fortune…..
So, when I spotted this Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb, reduced to just 99 pence, clearly 2 packs had to be purchased. One for me and one for my sister….. At 56 (me) and 60+ (sis) we need all the help we can get! The ‘Pears Soap’ is definitely no longer adequate as we ‘prepare to be beautiful’.. haha – Who’s old enough to remember the Pears Soap Adverts?… I still love the scent of that soap!
This is the best look ever….. NOT!
I couldn’t understand why it just kept sliding off my face….. until my sister told me that I should peel of the top layer to leave just the ’tissue’ layer behind… What would I do without my older sister for guidance….. As you can see below, once the top layer is removed, it’s possible to smooth the tissue layer down onto the skin for that real ‘moisture boost’…..
We left the mask on for about 20 mins while we sipped a glass of wine… (obviously!)… and had a good old ‘chin wag’ as they say here in Manchester. It’s surprising that although we actually live next door to each other, time alone to catch up on a proper conversation is rare and it was lovely to have that time and space to sit and talk…..
Then mask off and wow – our faces did feel incredibly smooth and silky and the moisturised effect lasted for the next few days. I’ll definitely be on the look out for more of these ‘moisture bombs’…
I know I should’ve taken an ‘after’ photo but sadly we were so busy chatting that I completely forgot!
Here’s a ‘no makeup’ next morning shot though…
I think our skin looks pretty ‘glowing’ once the makeup is applied… what do you think?
