I had a serum that Mr EB bought me (back in the good old days!) that really did seem to make a difference - Dior £120+. I saved it for special occasions! I liked the Gatineau throat gel too. I don't have anything anymore. I might give that a try in a normal world, but as ours is nowhere near normal I shall unfortunately have to pass.
With the possible exception of Mr M, am I the only one who doesn't regularly use lotions and potions? I can just about get by with some Oil of Ulay/Olay on a cold day and thin suncream if I'm sitting outside but other than that I get hot and bothered by it.
