Since moving to the UK it seems the product of choice for
most English women is Boots No. 7 skin care line. I have to admit I just didn't get it.
I have gone in to the stores several times and looked and wondered but have left in frustration.
Where is the consultant who knows it all? I need someone to guide me,
to take me by the hand and say 'this is what you need'.
To which I will respond, 'Oh yes, wise one, tell me more.'
I have learned that when you are on to a good thing....stick with it.
I am faithful to three and only three:
I just can't leave home without them.
So..... I read this article in the New York Times this morning that talked about
Boots No. 7 and the excitement around it now being sold in a
new Target store in Manhattan. It appears they love it too.
My curiosity peaked.
Off I went to our local Boots store to try again.
With notes in hand I decided on three.
No. 7 Skin Illuminator- Radiance boosting beauty fluid
No. 7 Protect and Perfect Eye Cream
No. 7 Instant Illusion- Wrinkle Filler
I guess this is a clear indicator of my age group :)
Here's the scoop:
I picked up the eye cream because I have run out of my usual. Not as hydrating as what I am use to but I am willing to give it a go.
I laughed through the application of the skin illuminator thinking that perhaps I should have started with less. Memories of the tin man in The Wizard of Oz were appearing in my mind. Perhaps wearing it alone is not ideal for mature skin. I added a bit of my foundation and you know what? I liked it :)
Lastly, the wrinkle filler. Surely not I thought. I put into action that raised eyebrow surprised look that results in lines across the brow and applied. Hmmm...maybe a little powder over the top of that.
Well, I'll be, it actually works.
So, I just had to share as I know some of my lovely readers are English
who I am sure have beautiful skin and will have their own thoughts on the brand.
What do you think?
Should I consider the skin care line too?
PS..I should mention that I am doing all this as I pack for trip to Scotland...
where it is cool and rainy. I bet they have beautiful skin too.
Off to see men in kilts at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
