A couple of quick reviews

Here's a couple more of the reviews from my to do list, these are relatively short so I have grouped them together. I will start with the shortest.

Escada born in paradise perfume - this was just a small perfume scented wipe sample, the smell is pleasant and like most of the escada perfumes I have tried it is quite a sweet smell. This one is fruity, perhaps peachy in smell. The scent lasted well throughout the day and I have to say it smelt best after an hour or so when it had sunk into my skin a little and wasn't so sweet and strong.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion - £5.45 for 200ml - My initial impressions of this was that it's a only a 10ml sample and will be impossible to determine whether it works for me or not in one application. So the little sample managed to cover my arms, legs and d├ęcolletage. It was strangely thick and hydrating but not greasy and it felt very nourishing. The packet does however state that it dries quickly, but I have to say I don't agree on that count but all in all a nice body lotion, however I think I'll stick to Vaseline intensive care.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant - £26 for 50ml - This product is so useful, I use it mainly on my lips and literally cant cope without it. It's not just for lips though, it can be used on dry patches of skin and even your cuticles. It's said to be good for all skin types and I have used this for 10 years, however this product has been around since 1930 which is testament to just how good it is. It does seem a little expensive but you don't need much and you can usually pick this up in TK Maxx or in gift sets in boots at Christmas time. I tend to stock up on beauty items in boots during the points events and when I have double and triple points coupons.
