Consumer groups warned shoppers to be on their guard against ‘pseudo-sales’, in which prices are inflated just before they are discounted so that the deal looks better than it actually is.

Consumer group Which? has urged shoppers to be vigilant of such tactics and warned them to ‘know their shopping rights for the Boxing Day sales’.

Under Trading Standards rules, pre-sale prices should be the last price at which goods were offered, and the goods should have been at that price for 28 consecutive days in the previous six months.

Some shoppers vented their frustration on social media: “Chelsea Corcoran wrote: ‘The shoes I wanted are more expensive in the sale than they were originally, what?”

Experts agree, the key to keeping your skin young and elastic is adequate moisture, exfoliation and sunscreen. Although, adding an anti-aging product to your daily routine makes a huge difference as well. Three of my personal favorites include Advanced Time Zone Night by Estee, Hydroxatone AM/PM and invigorating night gel by Ole Henrickson.

Funny, my skin has gotten better with age, why? Im a true believer in serums, topical skin vitamins, detoxing the body and manifesting healthy skin from within via diet and topically treating it as the largest most important organ we host.

The intensive daytime/nighttime care by Hydroxatone® is an AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex for Sensitive Skin and helps to reduces the appearance of wrinkles and hydrate otherwise parched dermis. Ad

Keep More Money In Your Wallet With These Makeup Dupes

Dec 12, 2013   //   by Gabriella Conybeare   //   No Comments

There are so many fabulous name brands of makeup out there but they are usually accompanied by a hefty price tag that makes our wallets hurt. Luckily, there are lots of cheaper alternatives of your favorites and the best part is you cant even tell the difference! Youre in for a shock when you see just how similar these products will be. They will achieve the high end effect at the low end price.

This makeup dupe is one of the most useful for me because I love a good blush and bronzer combo. These two makeup products really make your face look polished so it is important to have the right ones. I absolutely loved my NARS Super Orgasm until I lost it and just like that thirty dollars went down the drain. These cheaper versions of the name brand products we all know will save you the heartache of losing hard earned money like yours truly! You can afford to test these products for yourself and see just how well they work.
