    Hey everyone I emailed the Boots company and bad news:they do not plan on releasing the Hydraluminous foundation in the US.😢So everyone should email them and let them know that they should reconsider this.

    Just found your channel! Really enjoying it especially when your mom is on as she is closer to my age. I love the review of foundations as I’ve been struggling to find one I like. I wanted to try the CYO and No 7 you mentioned but having trouble finding them. Have they been discontinued?

    Your mums amazing. She looks so beautiful with her white grey hair. If I thought my hair would go that colour I would love to let my hair go natural. All I can say is Joan Collins eat your heart out. ❤️

    I know this video is nearly a year old. Still, so glad to see your Mother back looking so healthy and bright. I'd be so interested to know what she thinks of how your career came about, and if she is surprised that you are rather famous, & surprised at all that you are followed in the online social media world by thousands of people..🤹‍♀️ Also, I have a theory that many young women who are beauty and makeup gurus often have a mum who is also somewhat glamorous-- certainly true in your case😉🤗❣

    I have never worn s Dior foundation, and I'm shocked to learn that they all oxidize!!! It can't possibly be due to your own skin's chemistry if it also happens to your Mother. It seems crazy that prople will still buy something whivh is going to be unpredictable,, on the skin, unless of course they get a week of samples and learn to what degree the oxidation will affect them, and then decide they can deal with the amount of color change which occurs..🤤☺☮🤗

    I've only found this one. Love it when your mum is on. So wish she would set up her own channel. So many of us mature and wiser women need her advice with regards to makeup. Tell her it'd be a public service. Go on. You'll talk her into it yet. With regard to sunscreen though, I thought it was 1tsp and not a half - quarter tsp for forehead and chin, quarter tsp on each cheek and quarter tsp on neck? That's what I'm doing at moment anyway even if it is excessive. I'll have to double check it. Don't want to waste it either. I'm trying to cut back on waste.

    What does the term "has airbrush capability mean?" Do you need to apply with an airbrush? Thank you! Love you video!

    It’s odd Boots products are not in the U.S. as it is owned by an American pharmacy, Walgreens. I used to spend a lot of time there.
