After reading Sophie Honeysuckle’s post on Barbara Daly’s Face Lift cream I decided to get myself down to Tesco and give it a try (esp when I read her follow up post about her hubby’s comments here)
I am suitably impressed. Day to day I try not to wear to much make up and this is perfect for taking the edge of. Usually I wear Benefits primer which does the same job for me but I prefer Barbara Daly’s price tag.
As I’d run out of my fave YSL mascara and was pondering the success of my new purchase I decided to give Barbara Daly’s "full on" mascara a try. With a £15 price difference I could be on to saving myself a fortune. I went so far as to put YSL on one eye and Daly’s on the other (yes I have far too much time on my hands!) and I couldn’t tell the difference.
Thank you Sophie for introducing me to Barbara Daly!
There’s no stopping Tesco right now with their Finest Range of Perfume and Bath products that have a distinct similarity to a certain Jo Malone. I started with the Ginger Vanilla & Pink Pepper when I needed a day perfume and was very happy (esp for a fiver!) and since then have added Red Rose & Jasmine and Lime, Mandarin & Vetiver to my collection. They are perfect for work and have a range of bubble baths and lotions to match (I’ve avoided buying them so far as my bathroom is over run with lotions and potions!) – Sophie has also blogged about these products here
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products/ranges and what you thought of them and more importantly, let me know any supermarket products you’ve discovered.

As I mentioned in my previous post there are some ideas I don’t agree with but others that are worth considering.
I liked how she used free samples from beauty counters as gifts.
I did smile to myself as I walked to work this morning scanning the floor for “roadkill” pennies – no luck so far though!
For those asking how the author managed to get through Christmas, quite simply it seems. Gifts from charity shops and boot sales, reusing wrapping paper and handmade cards.
