The weekend before we left Essex, P and I went off to a Christmas Fair at a little village church. There wasn't an awful lot in the way of bargains to be had but I did pick up a couple of bits of toiletries and a huge pile of vintage postcards for £2.50. Amongst the toiletries was this teeny tiny little pot of Origins Youthtopia firming eye cream which cost me 5p.
I knew Origins was a good make (and, indeed, think I came across some Origins face wash at the same Christmas Fair last year) but it wasn't until I got home and checked out their website that I realised these teeny tiny little pots (5oz / 15ml) cost over £20!! Goodness, what a price!! I didn't list it on ebay as someone had obviously tested the product at some point but thought I would use it myself. Well, whaddaya know, this stuff is marvellous. I've been using it every day for the past three weeks and the bags, wrinkles and dark rings round my eyes have definitely improved. It's pretty miraculous and I'm really impressed. Not sure I'm impressed enough to spend over £20 but for 5p I am very very impressed indeed.
