With only a few days to go before our break in the sun with The Men, Kirstie and I went for a little lunchtime trip to our favourite chemist, Hickeyâ€™s, to pick up a few essentials. This will only be the first of many such little pre holiday trips though...
I bought some Lâ€™Oreal Perfectslim. At 33% off it was only â‚¬11.40, down from â‚¬16.99, so obviously it would have been a crime to have passed it by. It promises to firm and tone and reduce cellulite. I donâ€™t think it will have a chance to do all that by Saturday, but Iâ€™m ever the optimist.
The science: It contains "Glucide captors and draining complex" and the box explains it has a contouring action for a refined silhouette. "Enriched with Par-Elastyl, a powerful firming ingredient, PerfectSlim progressively smoothes and firms the skin".
So there you go.
I feel slimmer already! But Iâ€™ll let you know if I notice a difference after the 4 weeks it claims to take to work.
