Anatomicals - Fight the Crunch

A whole new range of products is available from Anatomicals and I've been testing out some of them... and loving it I have to say. I've been using them for a couple of weeks now and I'm really impressed especially considering how reasonably priced they are. As we speak I am using the Gorgon (gone gone gone) Zola foot cream which makes your feet minty fresh and soothed. Having just been for a run with Mr J i then hoped in the tub and put this on after soaking my aching muscles. I can actually feel the mint working in my slippers! Its rare to find a foot cream that you can really feel working. It's like Airwaves for feet!

Now there are lots of products to chose but my favourites are, in no particular order...

Stop Cracking Up lip balm. It tastes like strawberries. Nice ones. It is perfect consistency, not too greasy and not too liquid. The only thing is getting used to the applicator, or lack of one, if you are used to something more like Juicy Tubes. I love the bright packaging for this so much that as of yet I have not been able to bring myself to throw the packaging away!! It's a new fixture on my desk and at £3 I suggest it become one on yours.

You Kiss Artist You Kissing Kit would be just a fantastic present for hen do's or girls you don't know very well. It contains Snog Me Senseless Breath Freshener (£2), Snog Me Senseless Minty Tingling Lip Balm (£3) and Snog Me Senseless Mints which are yummy and come in the coolest little tin. I know what the girls will be getting on my hen do!
Not Another Rough Day Please moisturiser really smooths your skin and smells yummy. A big 200ml tube is just £3 - a great purchase for those feeling the pinch at the moment!

I really want to try Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer - a soothing eye bag that will refresh your eyes (after it's been in the fridge for 30 mins) and Snoozers are Losers energy patches. Which you slap on your arm and help keep you going... (these aren't magic they do contain caffiene!!)

Now there is one problem to over come. The website. Turn your sound off. The intro made me want to pull my hair out and whilst reading the philosophy section I had to listen to some guy spouting Greek and there seemed to be no way of stopping this. When you hold you mouse over the icons they make a kind of cool water-lapping-on-shore sound which is fine but I found the other stuff just too unbearable. I've muted my computer. I'm pretty sure though that for the one of me that finds it mind crushingly annoying there will be 5 people who think it's great. Some of the writing has a tendency to make me be a wee bit literal but I can gloss over that. And don't expect to find any info about the company... there's none there. Now enough website critique.

With Anatomicals the products speak for themselves. They are the product fans solution to the recession. Even their cucumber wipes are fantastically priced at £1.20. You'd probably save yourself a lot of money if you did your product shopping on the Anatomicals website and avoided Boots (which I know, is impossible if you really are a products fanatic). I'm off to play some more - tonight I'm going to try No Old Bags Allowed eye gel and The Seven Deadly Skins body scrub. It's a hard life xx
