How's your Black Friday Shopping? Isn't it crazy, how we react when we see a big, fat SALE sign? This 4-letter word seems to short circuit our brain and make us buy things we don't need in the first place. Shopping can be fun and therapeutic. But excessive shopping? To a point that we don't have enough room to store our stuff and we buy without the intention of using it for long? That's a bit too much.

This is interesting: "Businesses and the consumerism mindset have helped to shift the source of true happiness from intangible entities such as relationships, faith, and security to material goods. Dependence on material goods for one's happiness is futile; it is no surprise that materialistic people are more likely to be depressed." An excerpt from Psychological Effects of Materialism and Work on Happiness.

I don't mean to sound preachy however, we sometimes need to stop and ponder these thought provoking issues in life. 😙 Again, I'd like to point out that buying things that you need and/or 'spark joy' (got that from Marie Kondo) can be helpful. And a moisturiser that works? Sign me up!

I've been using No Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser for about a month now and I must say that this is worth a blog post. I bought it online because I was nearly done with my previous moisturiser from The Body Shop. The TBS was equally nice but it's more apt for summer because it's consistency was watery.


The packaging was really nice. I bought it at a discounted price (not sponsored). I'm not sure if the deal I used is still around but with the Christmas season, I think there'd be more enticing deals on This Works website. I like the fact that they've included their best seller product which is deep sleep pillow spray.

The product has a thick, rich consistency which I crave for especially during winter months. I am such a low maintenance lazy person so I tend to use one moisturiser for morning and night. I got a simple trick: I use a face mist first before applying the moisturiser on my face. I don't know, I feel that my skin better absorbs a dollop when it's damp. The morning after, my face is so soft and plump. PS: Face mist doesn't have to be fancy, I got mine from Super Drug and it does the job!


Lately, I use this alone because I'm taking a break from my liquid foundation. It's nice to let your skin breathe and not stuff them with too much product. If it's necessary, I use my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Foundation but on a regular office day, I just apply TWP moisturiser as my base. Picture on the left is me with TWP on (nothing else) and on the right, I got my BM foundation on.

TWP No Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser retails for £46.00 (RRP) for 48 ml. I visited their site just now and they offer 25% off which brings the price down to £36.80 (free delivery along with the same freebies I got). The price point is higher compared to its competitors but one thing's for sure: I'mma use this baby till I hit pan! 💖 Let me know if you've tried any TWP products and if so, does this work? (No pun intended) 😛 -CMK



  1. Will try this mare once I finish my new moisturisers that Carol got me from SG. They have one common ingredient with thisworks - hyaluronic acid which locks moisture.
    I always look for that ingredient. ��

    1. Aww that's sweet! Thanks for dropping by mare :) Let me know how it goes! Xoxo
