A while ago, I think it was at the beginning of last year (or maybe even the one before) I was asked to be an Aveeno tester, I have to admit it I said yes mainly for the free products they were about to throw at me. I duly tested them for three or four weeks, fillled in the little online questionnaire each week and then gave my final findings.
I found the products brilliant, my skin improved, indeed it glowed for the first time in years, the only downside I found in the products was the excess packaging, so when they asked as the final question on the last questionnaire if I would buy the products again I said a firm NO. I would have loved them to follow this up and find out why I had said no after my glowing reports (and skin) on the previous questionnaires, but they didn't.
Immersing myself in my frugal ways I started using supermarkets own version of my regular products, they were good, almost as good as the regular products I had previously used, and massively cheaper, but they were not a patch on Aveeno.
After all the trauma and stress of the last year, my skin care regime was regular but perfunctuary, doing the basics but not really caring for it if you know what I mean. Well it's all caught up with me and last weekend I realised just how tired, dreary and drab I looked. Maybe it's not all me and my lack of care, maybe some of it is the lack of sun, the desperate need for warmer weather and sunshine to lift all of our spirits and give us that push to care for ourselves a bit more.
Well last week I bit the bullet went to Boots the Chemist and treated myself to the full range of Aveeno skincare products I started using them just two days ago and already I'm feeling brighter and smoother of face. Yes, it all came to around the £50 mark (I bought some handcreams as they were on special offer and two of the Day Creams), but as another advert on the tele says.....
its......Because I'm Worth It !!
What do you splash out on in spite of being frugal in other ways?
I must point out that this is not a sponsored post in any way, it's merely a recommendation of a good product that I am going to continue using. But if Aveeno want to send me anything else to test............!! Lol.
