      I think there are probably plent of companies churning out skin care products who for a fee will put anyone's name to the product as long as they can sell the stuff. Beauty Magazines will promote any old stuff as long as the columnist gets plenty of freebies in return for great reviews.

      Abbi is just a marketing person. That's what her company does. The idea that she created any of these products is ridiculous. She may have created the label and the branding, but that's about it.

      I was looking in on this last night and we all know what a vivid imagination JF has in respect of what she uses (!) but I couldn't believe her on this show. There is a show that has been on a couple of times, Zelens I think it is, and they sell an eye cream for about 70. At the time JF said that it was the only eye cream she could use or would touch because she has such sensitive skin round her eyes. Funnily enough, I recall her saying the same thing about Perricone on occasion too. Last night she told Abby that she might be tempted to try the new range as she has been using a single brand of eye cream for years and years because she can't use others. It turned out, this brand was Gatineau! As I was attempting to digest this monster pork pie, it did leave me wondering where the truth really lies? Does she really not think we can see through the claptrap? It completely destroys any credibility she might have as a salesperson because you know you can't trust a thing she says. I certainly wouldn't want her fronting my products if I was Gatineau (or any other brand) because she has more crows feet than the Tower of London!

      No,it all about paying for the advertising space in the mags. That is where the magazine makes the money so a brand which buys the ad pages gets the big reviews. A beauty mag editor once broke ranks and total all. If a company is spending to advertise in the mag then you better say nice things, or could find yourself out of a job because said company will pull their budget.

      Its the online blogger/vloggers who will rave about products for freebies.

      Rumours are Zelens might be pulling out to of the UK, the brand is on discount in a number of places. A whole 10-15 off in some cases.

      Have have heard JF say she only uses Bobbi Brown, only uses BM, only uses Laura Geller and the list goes on and on. She forgets what she says and takes us all for idiots. I am hardly watching Q anymore they all get on my nerves with the constant lies and pushing for sales.
      I would say by looking at her JF does not wear much make-up she hardly looks like she makes any effort.

      We've all said it before I know, but Jill Franks is no advert for any skincare product. She tells guests that she is 50, as if they and us are meant to be amazed, she looks older than that, her skin is dull and dry looking---imo.

      Zelens has gone from our Space NK, I wondered why, now Donna has said it's been withdrawn, so that explains it.
