  5. Love this! I've been using the Brightening Facial in a Box in the run up to the festive season & have to say, I'm really impressed with the results for the price!

  6. That Aromatherapy Associated collection looks brilliant. Why is it always so tempting to buy for yourself when you're supposed to be shopping for others?

  7. i just bought front cover as a treat for me for xmas, i was worried about the bright colours so i am glad you said they are not as vivid as they show there, cant wait to try
