Soap&Glory Wish Upon A Jar

This is the detailed product information from the Boots website about this cream-

Soap & Glory Wish Upon a Jar Wonder Cream.

Aging? Take a deep breath, concentrate, and make a...WISH UPON A JAR™ 21 Day Collagen Overhaul Cream For tired, dull and aging skin, with shea butter, tetrapeptides, antioxidants and oxygen boosters.

How does it work?

- Boosts moisture levels

- Fights fine lines and wrinkles

- Hides flaws!

- Moisture boosting

With YOUTHFAKE™ Diamond spheres to illuminate the skin and minimize the visual aspects of lines, wrinkles, shadows, large pores, pigmentation and discolouration.

Youth twice a day:

For best results, use WISH UPON A JAR™ under or as your facial moisturiser twice daily (a.m./p.m.) for twenty-one days straight. When the course is complete, revert back to your favourite daily moisturiser. (And don't forget your SPF!)

What’s inside that counts?

Contains quite possibly the most potent mix of clinically proven anti-wrinkle peptides, oxygen boosters, puffiness reducers, pigmentation, large pore and fine-line disguisers ever witnessed and in 21 days flat can make your face look and feel SUPER FRESH!

I LOVE Soap&Glory products and couldn't wait to try this one. The packaging is FAB. It has a great texture and smells lovely. I have used it for nearly a week now but it just doesn't agree with my skin *cry*
Over the last few days I have developed dry/sore patches on my chin and around my crows feet. I also have little blisters across my whole face. So now I have a crusty, dry, flaky face and a pot of 'wonder' cream I can't use. Disappointed big time but it's too 'potent' for me :(
Back to the drawing board...

Week 5 weigh in

You know how I said I wouldn't sabotage myself- I did! :(

Friday night I had a hot date at the new Italian, so had lots of delicious food and wine.

Saturday I was so hungover and couldn't be arsed to cook, so we had pizza, potato wedges and extra garlic sauce.

I wasn't too bad during the week but I didn't meal plan or even drink any water.

Thursday I ate a whole box of Malteasers to myself then later had spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread.

Last night I stayed over at my friends and we had lasagne, salad and garlic bread. Washed down with strawberry and lime cider.

I feel a right little piggy but luckily there was NO GAIN! No loss either but I'm happy with that. The line is drawn and I'm starting again.

Does it get any easier???? Please say it does...

Week 4 weigh in

I didn't manage to pull myself up from the slump I was in last week. A few days of guess work what calories I had consumed. Not on top form to be honest but this weeks loss is-


Still going in the right direction, slowly but surely. I did actually measure myself today as well and so far I have lost-

0.5 inches on my bust

1 inch on my waist

3, yes 3!! inches on my hips!!!

I WILL keep going. I haven't fallen off the wagon yet. I'm still losing, albeit slower than anticipated but I won't lose hope and will not have the biggest binge ever, even though some days I REALLY want to. It won't make me feel any better anyway. I WILL NOT sabotage myself!

And breath... :)

My waning willpower!

I haven't fallen off the wagon totally yet but I can feel myself slipping.

I want fish and chips!

I want a full English breakfast!

I want to eat until I'm stuffed and can't move!

I want crisps, chocolate, hot sweet milky coffee!

I want cake!

I just want to totally pig out on all the wrong foods but I know I will regret it. I'll feel all guilty and ashamed of myself. Probably feel sick and awful too.

How do I get over it??? HEEEELLLLPPPPPP!

week 3 weigh in

I found this week quite hard to be honest. I had a raging hangover on Saturday so had a few chips and fishfingers for dinner. I've discovered that me and Weetabix don't get on. I had it for breakfast a couple of times this week and it has totally bunged me up. Wednesday and Thursday I was at training all day. Lunch was provided and although the food wasn't too bad, it wasn't really diet friendly. There was a very good veg and fruit platter though so I ate some of that with a couple of sandwiches(ham and cream cheese,egg and mayo). I tried to log it on weightlossresources but I was unsure of ingredients/measurements etc, so it was pretty much guess work. It's also coming up to my time of the month so I'm craving chocolate and stodge like there's no tomorrow.

Anyway, my loss this week is- 1lb!

I am a bit disappointed but a loss is a loss, right?

I'm going to try and pull back control and make sure I weigh/measure everything this week.

No more Weetabix either...

I'm still on target though and have lost 6lbs in 3 weeks :)

Wish me luck!
