STAR IN THE HOOD
apparently over 40,000 now
I heard one of the presenters saying it on air last night. I think it was Debbie Flint.Who stated 32,000 have sold?
normally its a 150,000 oneI heard one of the presenters saying it on air last night. I think it was Debbie Flint.
I believe they usually have around 100,000 units of the Elemis TSV to sell, so there shouldn't be so much of a panic if it's the same this year. Don't know if they are still at the giddy heights of those numbers now they seem to be keeping such a close eye on their cashflow situation.
I can't say I blame them with Mothercare having joined the roster of high street casualties. The pre-Christmas and post-Christmas periods seem to be the worst time for companies to go to the wall. If you can't pay your bills pre-Christmas, you won't get the credit lines to order in your Christmas stock... and if you haven't shifted your Christmas stock, you can't pay your bills post-Christmas. So they get you on the way in or out of the festive season if you are struggling with Cashflow.
Decleor have a fantastic Christmas Hamper that costs 4p more than the Elemis TSV but could be a very strong alternative. Item is 240855
It has three 50ml travel sizes, a supersized 100ml Hydra Floral Light, then three full sized items - 15ml eye cream, 100ml cleanser and a 15ml aromesence oil in either Neroli or Rose.
How does Mr llloyd find this stuff, llloyd, notably the shave gel - is it V minty? Mr B has sensitive chops you see. Also, what about the face wash & cream? Is it rich enough? Mr B uses my (premium) stuff, although I have sneakily re filled my Algenist with Waitrose pure night cream for him to continue helping himself to! :mysmilie_17:Mens Elemis gift set.

Now to go and see how much Hubby has still to use.
I’m still educating Hubby on skincare, he likes it, but I have to keep reminding him to use it. He loves the shaving cream, so do I (legs obviously) really rich. I think the men’s range is lovely & too be honest I’d use them if he stops as slightly cheaper than the women’s range. Would recommend the eye reviver too.Shame, the stuff just isn't the same anymore. The hydrafloral has been totally F**ked up. I never thought they'd dare with that one. Curse L'oreal . Bustards.
