Gorgeous new fragrances, luscious physique balms, enjoyable tub oils and one thing glittery… who would not love some beauty treats for Christmas?

There wasn’t a lot in these days (we’re speaking the late 70s) obtainable for younger youngsters, significantly after we might solely store on the little chemist in the closest city. So for us it was vivid blue or vivid inexperienced and attempting to repeat the delicate appears in Jackie and Blue Jeans magazines.
