Boots No.7 Age Rewind Foundation 11/06/2007

FIVE YEARS YOUNGER?

Boots No.7 Age Rewind Foundation Until I moved to Peterborough, believe it or not, I’d never been within general “shopping distance” of Boots and therefore, bought all my makeup from Superdrug, department stores or other local pharmacy type outlets. Living about 5 minutes away from the town centre in Peterborough there’s now a Boots right on my doorstep and this has opened cosmetic heaven for me – and in particular, given me an introduction of the Boots No. 7 range. This review covers the “Boots No. 7 Age Rewind Foundation”, “Younger looking skin in a moment”. So does it do what it says on the tin? I’ve never been all that confident or comfortable with the general state of my skin and have worn foundation for years to smooth out the blemishes and give a more even skin tone. Until my Boots revelation I had primarily used Rimmel or Maybelline brands. One of the positives about Boots is that they often do a 3 for the price of 2 offer on the Boots No. 7 range and if there’s no financial incentive, there’s general a tantalising free gift which usually consists of a makeup bag and a selection of miniature products. I’m a marketeer’s dream – the word offer just has me reaching for my purse! Anyway, this particular day it was a 3 for 2 offer and the name of the foundation “Age Rewind” caught my eye. Once you get past 40, it’s quite interesting how you start to look out for things that will help you hang on to your youth for just a little bit longer! The packaging is quite classy for a ...

Pepsi Max Twist 03/05/2005

DON'T TWIST, DON'T SHOUT

Pepsi Max Twist There are well known authors on this site who are expert beer tasters or wine connoisseurs. Personally I'm not all that bothered about alcohol, I can take it or leave it but I do love cola … and in particular one brand of cola, Pepsi Max. If someone asked me to take the "Pepsi Challenge" I'm 99% certain I'd know the difference. Each cola brand certainly has a unique taste and of course, some are rather more pleasing to the palate than others! Pepsi Max being the most pleasing of all obviously - in my humble opinion. I've been a devoted buyer of the Pepsi Max brand since it was piloted in Scotland almost twenty years ago now, so when they launched the "Pepsi Max Twist" I had to try it. Coca Cola were naturally the first on the marketing band wagon when they started marketing Diet Coke with lemon. In my opinion, Coca Cola were probably looking for something to make a fairly foul tasting drink, into something a little more palatable. Fortunately, in the case of Diet Coke, it worked. Prior to this little marketing ploy whenever I had to drink diet Coke - e.g. in a pub that offered no other brand, I had always found that adding lemon somehow made it taste "sweeter". However, this then left its main competitor with a bit of a dilemma - should they just copy the principle, or try something else? Of course, they had to go for the latter to try and maintain the integrity of the brand, after all - brand is everything! So the twist was added lemon … erm … with added lime, of course! ...
