So this week, here’s who I’m giving The Thumbs Up or The Thumbs Down to…..
The Thumbs Up definitely for Botanicals Anti-Ageing Facial Serum from the Botanicals Rose & Camellia face care range. A little goes a long way and my skin is feeling much more hydrated when I wake up. I don’t use it in the morning as I prefer not to use facial oils under make-up but from what I can gather it’s good to apply twice a day. It’s ‘nasties-free’ and smells heavenly!
GPs Behind Closed Doors gets the seal of approval from me too. It’s a lovely, heartwarming series full of ‘characters’ both amongst the doctors and their patients. The doctors are all incredibly caring and conscientious and the programme really shows how hard a GPs job actually is. So many symptoms and so little time…..
And The Thumbs Up also for Indian Summers – have no idea where it’s going but am enjoying seeing Julie Walters on our screens again.
My cleanser of the moment is Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water!. It’s pretty good stuff and it takes off all my make-up without a struggle. It’s lovely and soothing too and doesn’t need rinsing off when you’ve finished. It’s unbelievably good value for money – mine was only £3.32 for 400ml from Superdrug!
The Thumbs Up to LIDL too! So much variety, so many surprises and soooo cheap!
The Thumbs Down
Santander gets The Thumbs Down for a variety of reasons. I’m not going into detail because I don’t want to waste any more time on them frankly! In a nutshell, I have just closed a Santander account which I used to save for birthdays, Christmas and holidays. Wondering how Santander is allowed to send me unsolicited marketing texts to ask me to spend money from their affiliate stores yet can’t text to tell me I’m overdrawn unless I request it? Not a very consistent ‘texting policy’!
I’m not at all happy with Cadbury either for changing their near-as-dammit-perfect recipe for Creme Eggs. It would seem that Cadbury Creme Eggs aren’t made with Dairy Milk any more but with ‘standard cocoa mix chocolate’ aka that awful stuff which is kind of crumbly and leaves a bitter after-taste. A big mistake Cadbury, you mark my words!
