High End vs. High Street: Stretch Mark Treatments Put To the Test

It’s a big conundrum for many of us, does more expensive necessarily mean better?  Whether it’s food, beauty products or clothing and footwear, it’s hard to know whether buying cheap really does mean buying twice, or if you’re just paying for a brand.  In the first of a new series, I’m putting two products head to head to find out if it’s worth the splurge or if the budget product performs just as well.

I love Borjois as a makeup brand.  On my personal current must ‘must purchase as soon as humanly possible’ list, alongside infinity scarves, and anything in the colour mint, resides the entry ‘anything Borjois’.  Imagine my joy when I spotted an offer in Boots.  Spend £15 and get a free gift.  ‘Yeah ok’ I thought, ‘this is going to […]
