Exotic Packaging: Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Fennel & Water Mint Soufflé
I bought it back in the 1970s when I had such greasy skin (now styled oily because perhaps it sounds better - or less ghastly) that I really didn't need a moisturiser. I used to open the pot and just sniff the fabulous smell of this wonderfully light cream.
I'd like to say though, that having horribly greasy skin all those years ago was not such a bad thing in the long run. I don't have so many lines and wrinkles as I might have, and (according to my friends) look younger than I ought to for my age. Which is great.
It's a shame then, that nobody pointed out this important fact when I was in my teens. I could have done with that advice. It would have helped a lot.
So if by chance you are reading this aged about 17 and your skin is horribly oily - don't despair. Because when you get to my age you will look wonderfully youthful while your friends who currently have nice dry skin will look all crumbly and ancient: unless they spend a fortune on fancy skin creams and remember to use them every day. Don't forget your sunscreen though.
