      Default Skin sense

      Being the 'non-cynic' that I am, I wondering whether the 'lovely' Ms Cleave, finished her 'Ultrasun' campaign early, as lets face it last year there were hours right through to the October Half-Term and then the first one this year was a 'special' TSV in February (yes I know, I am sad, very very sad), but now that Ultrasun has waved 'bye bye', Abi can now start to concentrate on her skin care range, as demonstrated this afternoon with the 'gushing' JF at the helm.

      I know that some may like the range and will think it is the best thing since sliced bread, but the point (yes, but give me some slack, this posting is a combination of severe boredom and verbal diarrhoea).

      What's the betting that sometime before the end of the year there is a TSV promoting this brand and what's also the betting that at some point this skin care range will feature SPF (though I am not sure whether that would class as 'conflicted interest' as she is the UK promoter for Ultrasun).





      My ramblings for this post are done!

      Always an interesting read Yorkrose !

      I read an article the other day, where scientists are concerned at the ingredients in sun products and how they can turn toxic when rubbed into the skin. Quite a scary read actually, and wondered what Abbi would make of it.

      Anyway, how can ONE woman like Abbi create a range of beauty products ? I would have thought there is so much involved, like raising the finance for start-up, then there's the formula needed, a manufacturer to make it, labelling, marketing etc etc. It cant be that hard to do if she can do it ??? I mean, look at all the single name products on the market that are fronted by a lone woman, Judith Williams, Liz Earle, Prai, M Assam, Gale Hayman, Sarah Chapman, Bobbi Brown, Alpha-H to name a few, and now Abbi Cleve, so is it that hard ?

      Just watching gushing Abi and Jill together was a turn off for me. I have passed the point of trying new wonder creams . I stick to what I know suits my skin.

      What turned me off Q skin care was Abi saying Ultrasun was so moisturising you didnt really need to wear your moisturiser on top of it.If that's true why spend a fortune on skin care.

      According to Jill all the beauty magazines are in love with the range. Good for them .

      Have they changed the ingredients of Ultrasun this year? I've never usd the stufff but was under the impression that it was highly thought of, however I have seen a few FB posts with children burned to a crisp and on a recent TV programme it did not come out well when skin specialist did tests.

      I've noticed this too from QVC reviews. They would have to change the packaging when the formula changes wouldn't they? That's what other brands do. And I would expect the brand ambassador to say it too.

      I have something like an 'elephant', but not necessarily the 'non-forgetfulness' which I think is what you were very kindly alluding to, no, now other features that are so endearing in an elephant but perhaps not as much in humans such as wrinkles and size are perhaps closer to my resemblance and association with these magnificent creatures!

      Hmm, I am starting to think that, I know there are the QVC presenters and guests who 'gush' (but then that it is in their contracts, at the orientation week, there is probably a day of 'how to gush'!), but I am wondering whether Abi has seen this and then decided to launch her own range so she has in effect more control over the product, maybe sometime soon she will move away completely from Ultrasun and launch her own 'once a day' suncream!
