I saw the ladies this morning on IW. I’ve never watched them before . I’m not interested in their products. One was definitely the nodding dog and IW always have less space then Q so they were crammed together.
Saw model Sharon and now know who she is . I didn’t mind her at Q , a familiar face .
I think the ladies sat down and worked out how they could make a shed load of money. Beauty is big business especially anti ageing.
Good use of a degree from a prestigious university that encourages people to think independently. Flog it all - the hope of looking better backed up by Oxford University's sharpest science brains. Now that is lateral thinking and worthy of degree status.

The problem is Lab seem to copy other brands ideas put their name to them. They always seem to be inferior as well.

Loads.of Lab for months in TKMaxx usually marked down to red label.

Loads of things like these can be seen on Chinese sites, for a few quid. Certainly wouldn’t trust buying them. Does anyone know where the LAB products are made?

Do we just take their word for it that they do ACTUALLY have Oxford degrees ? I mean, there are 22 others Oxford cities in the world, and 30 odd places in America called Oxford. Just saying...............

(At secondary school in the early 60's I passed an exam and got the certificate for College of Preceptors ! - nobody knew what the hell that was, but hey, it was another certificate for the portfolio 🤭 🤭 )

???? She's a model. There's not much work at the moment. I can't see how her working at Ideal World or for LAB is a reflection on her self respect.
For me, it's because the products don't work.

There is work about in print, editorial, pack shots. Companies also work months & months ahead.

Yes but depending on the face used certain versions of their products do appear to work. It’s best then to view that persons face during presentations of other products, then it becomes clear if it was the item creating the effect.

Anyone know of a business that actively promotes as a selling point, the university where the owners studied? Why does this have to be mentioned ad nauseam? What credence does it give the actual product?

Just been doing some channel hopping and saw a Kuhn Rikon knife set being demo'ed on Ideal World, there's also a couple of Laura Geller items listed on their website.

'Lauren (27 years old) studied Biological Sciences at St Hilda’s College, Oxford University, specialising in genetic and cellular pathways.
Charlotte (30 years old) gained a Masters in Chemistry from Worcester College, Oxford University. Charlotte carried out her research project at the Berlin Synchrotron investigating the effect of different energies on particles.'

In your opinion the products don't work - others find they do. Maybe it's down to expectations, there's no miracle product.
For classic models work is very limited in print, not sure what you mean by "pack shot"?. Editorial is a speciality of its own where a particular body shape is needed. With the general lifestyle modelling that most of the older classic models do, work is very limited at the moment with most companies wanting "real" couples or families due to Covid. The benefit of working at QVC/Ideal World is that it's regular work and if you don't live too far from them it makes sense to take up the opportunity of work.

my daughter went to st Hildas college so that's legit as far as Oxford is concerned and there is definitely a Worcester college if my memory serves me well

Berlin synchrotron doesn't appear to be a 'place' but rather a project - in other words nuclear physics. Surely if this pair are that highly qualified then I would have thought their expertise would have brought them financial rewards in their chosen field, rather than chance their arm with churning out duff products in an already overcrowded beauty industry.

Notice it says that Lauren 'studied', whereas Charlotte 'gained'. subtle difference.
I don't understand what's the difference lol
