  1. Excellent to hear that companies are working on being better for the environment. When you look at how many ladies take part in this site and how many products we must use in a year…wow. Its good to know companies are working on reducing landfill.

  2. I've made a note of products I wouldn't mind trying so I can investigate them on my next shopping trip. I love the positive moves some of the companies have made towards environmental sustainability.

  3. Well done to L’Oréal introducing a scholarship. Some great product launches. The cooling eye gel from Rodman + Fields sounds interesting. The Body Shop vitamin E Cooling Mist Gel, also sounds like something I’d like to try.

  4. I've smelt it & it's not bad. I'm not a huge fan of floral scented things, but A Moment in Tokyo is one I could tolerate I think. (Not that I'm about to buy it as (a) it's not my bag & (b) I've got 6 candles from 2 different companies on their way to me!)
