But recently, I found a product which I was so bowled over by that I thought I'd share it with you. A few weeks ago when I was getting a replacement for my REN day cream, the friendly lady at Liberty's gave me sample of their new BB cream. Now, don't ask me what BB cream does; the REN lady told me it's basically a tinted moisturiser which magically blends into your own skin tone.
Needless to say, I was sceptical. But this stuff was impressive. This cream wasn't at all greasy, it was easy to apply and it made my complexion look all silky and smooth. I loved the cream so much I tried to get some at Stockmann's in Helsinki, fully aware that I'd be paying a premium price for the product in Finland. Alas, it hadn't been launched Europe yet, so I was spared the extra cost.
When I came back to the UK one of the first things I did was to go to my local pharmacist here in Crouch End who stocks REN products (very handy that). They told me the product had been so successful that REN had run out of the cream nationwide. Typical! The ladies at Liberty's confirmed the story; there was a worldwide shortage of the new BB cream.
But today, while shopping with Daughter at John Lewis on Oxford Street, I had a cursory look at the REN counter and guess what, there it was, a whole row of BB creams. What's more there was an offer on - buy the cream and get a package of Radiance Renewal Cream and Micro Polish Cleanser for free!
The John Lewis web site also says it still has some stock. So if you, like me, have been hunting for this product, you can get it here.
