Garnier Synergie Wrinkle Lift 19/05/2009

New Garnier UltraLift Anti-wrinkle firming day cream

Garnier Synergie Wrinkle Lift Garnier Skin Naturals UltraLift Anti-wrinkle firming day cream. I did not buy this with the intention to review it. But the results were so good; I thought I would like to share my experience with you. I have a few small wrinkles on my forehead and of course round my eyes. Well at the beginning of the year I noticed my first proper wrinkle it was above my mouth, vertical and instantly deep looking. Every time I looked in the mirror I could see it. I had just about convinced myself that it didn’t matter we all age, that to worry about it was just being vain. Garnier UltraLift Anti-wrinkle day firming cream SPF 15, I don’t usually buy this brand of anti-wrinkle cream as I had tried it several years ago and I didn’t see any results, and it did not absorb well into my skin. Until last week when shopping in Boots for my usual anti-wrinkle cream I noticed the Garnier UltraLift was on special offer and as there was a NEW on the front of the box I thought I would buy it with my points to try it out. When I buy an anti-wrinkle cream all I expect is for it to delay the inevitable signs of ageing and to make my skin feel and look at its best. What do they tell you on the box: “Garnier UltraLift spf 15 helps uncrease the appearance of even deep wrinkles.” “Skin relaxing ginger has been carefully selected for its ability to counteract the micro-contractions of the skin, which can lead to the appearance of lines and wrinkles.” Did I believe any of this? No. When you open ...

Odysseus Hotel, Paleokastritsa 29/04/2009

Odysseus Hotel, Paleokastritsa, Lovely Location.

Odysseus Hotel, Paleokastritsa   My husband and I stayed in the Odysseus Hotel Paleocastritsa last May. We had a lovely time and the hotel was clean and comfortable. It is in the most beautiful postion,overlooking one of the many bays in Paleokastritsa (when you look down from above it‘s the heart shaped one). The view from our balcony was so beautiful it took your breath away every morning. We were lucky, as although we didn't have a "sea view room" we had a room with a view of the sea and across the bay. I would definitely recommend you pay for a sea view room, as not only are you guaranteed a fantastic view you will probably get a much larger balcony. Ours was big enough for a table and two chairs. We stayed half board, and we thought the food was good. The breakfast was basic although the yoghurt was lovely. At night the salad selection was really very good and the main course was usually a local corfiot dish. If you are looking for fine dining this is not the place for you! The pool was lovely , not large but spotlessly clean, like every thing else in the hotel. The grounds of the hotel although small were very pretty. there were white roses and hollyhocks in bloom and lemons on the tree. There is a shop underneath the hotel where you can buy anything you have forgotten to bring with you, + wine, anti-mosquito candles, etc,etc. The walk up the hill to the monastery is well worth it for the views alone, there is a small taverna at the top as well. The monastery is shut between 1pm-3pm, also try to ...
