Top Tips 

When buying a perfume opt for the gift set for two reasons…

Often you can get the gift sets of perfumes for cheaper or the same price as the bottle on it’s own so it is worth checking this first.

The gift set will include the scented moisturiser which if you dab a touch of on your pulse points to dry before spraying your perfume on top, this will make your sweet scent last a lot longer!

If you want a whiter than white smile on your big day, breakthrough treatment Instant WhitesTM is clinically proven to deliver results after one five minute application per day for seven days and all achievable at home!
