I enter a fair few competitions on line and recently went in for one on Loved By Laura. Laura’s a bit of a gourmet queen and her post ‘4 Things You Can Do In Blogger That I Wish I'd Known Sooner’ was ridiculously helpful. Snazzy photos too, you should check them out.
The prize was a Bio Clinica anti-wrinkle cream from Tower Health (£9.95). As it’s coincidentally coming up to a rather big birthday in a year or so, I thought there’s no harm in entering and then I won - Yay me! When it arrived the accompanying letter advised a review was expected - well seeing as you asked so nicely! Luckily I live for this sort of thing and was planning a review anyway, so it’s all good.
Now I’m a massive girl when it comes to packaging and so that the box was a little damaged was a tad disappointing, but no matter I opened the pot and took a big whiff.
This is what it reminded me of. Not an unpleasant smell from what I remember (we don’t see her anymore, while she smelt nice, she had a tongue that could cut diamonds!) It did however come across a little mature and rather more perfume-y than I’d hoped for. When asking about this a Tower Health rep, who got back to me super-fast, advised “This product does have parfum listed in its ingredients so will be fragranced”. Fair point!
As someone likely to break out in a rash if I even hear the word ‘chemicals’ I was a little trepidacious to slap it on. - Look I know that’s not technically a word but I like it and it sums up my feelings so it stays, alright there grammar Nazi types?
But slap it on I did and was pleasantly surprised at the luxurious feel. The cream soaked into my skin within seconds and it does leave you feeling naturally soft. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and not had any negative reactions, my new friend at Tower Health advised “It also states it is suitable for ALL skin types”. A statement which I would agree with.
Please Note: As is my style this review is a little tongue-in-cheek I am not advising you actually use it on your feet.... nor do I think Erin Brockovich helped the world get nicer beauty product pots, it was something to do with shoes, right?
