Help For Heroes XTREME The Fragrance: a good scent for a good cause

help for heroesWith fragrance one of the top gift ideas at this time of year it’s often all to easy to reach for a big brand name or the latest concoction from a huge fashion house. Which is all very well if you’re ok with lining the pockets of Chanel, Dior or Hugo Boss but if you want to do some good with your gift giving then maybe you should think about XTREME The Fragrance by Help For Heroes – the charity which offers support to servicemen and women injured in the line of duty.

A creamy, spicy and gourmandy fragrance, with lemon, black pepper, basil, amber and vanilla, it easily holds its own against this year’s biggest designer launches and a minimum of £3 from every sale goes direct to the charity. Five ex-servicemen worked alongside perfumer and lecturer Marianne Martin to come up with the fragrance and their stories are truly inspirational (you can read about the guys  involved here). So if you’re looking for a fragrance that helps people, as well as your chances, you might want to put XTREME on your wish list.

Help For Heroes XTREME The Fragrance is available from Debenhams and www.helpforheroesfragrance.com priced £30.

Bulldog’s Original Moisturiser just got even better!

I’ve said on many occasions and in many publications that Bulldog’s Original Moisturiser is one of my all-time favourite moisturisers. It may be inexpensive but don’t let the price fool you – it’s an excellent and effective moisturiser that I often use myself. Plus, it’s animal-friendly and British! And this hero product just got even better by helping some real heroes.

In support of this year’s Poppy Appeal special packs bearing the red poppy have been produced and for every one you buy Bulldog will donate a whopping 25p to The Royal British Legion. Puts some other brands to shame doesn’t it?

 

Bulldog is available from Boots,  leading supermarkets and online at www.nivenandjoshua.com
