Lunch with J&J… plus a side order o’ skilpad

Last week I had lunch at the Vineyard hotel with the B-line PR team. (They handle the Johnson’s account and are also responsible for Neutrogena). Over a yummy slice of quiche, I learned that good ole’ J&J would be getting a li’l packaging makeover in the new year. 

Check out their new look lotion bottles: 

The new bottle's on the right.

I was also spoiled with a fab Neutrogena hamper filled with all their ‘number one’s.

Each of the goodies in this box is the bestseller in its catagory somewhere in the world.

The facial moisturiser hiding underneath the scrub is Neutrogena’s Oil-free Moisture SPF15: 

This stuff is one of America's most beloved, bestselling moisturisers.

I merrily used this throughout my teens and twenties and loved that it kept my face perfectly hydrated and included a sunscreen yet didn’t leave me looking like an oil slick. Many moisturisers aimed at greasy skin tend to leave sunscreen out of the mix because most SPFs, when added to any formula, tend to up the oil-factor.

Right now, however, I’m loving the brand’s new(ish) Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit daily scrub:

You HAVE to smell this!

It doesn’t really ‘exfoliate’ all that well, but it cleanses like a bomb and has the most AMAZING uplifting scent that makes getting up and having a shower when you’re totally hung or still half asleep all that less painful…

Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I quite like their Make-up Remover cleansing towelettes:

They even take off waterproof mascara!

Anyhoo, after a quick coffee, I headed off for home, but not before nabbing a piccie with the hotel’s friendly li’l torties. 


And a close up…

Many of these guys are actually older than I am!

Thanks Viv and team! And was lovely to see you guys again and, in the new year, I’m looking forward to finding out what the Big Secret Thing You Can’t Talk About Just Yet turns out to be…

Love, love
