Week 8: Pitching your idea

Dear Jane

I’m a lifestyle journalist and writer with an array of articles published within various different publications, I have an idea for a feature story, which I think you may be interested in. With woman in todays society becoming more successful than ever within their careers, home-life and social life, I wanted to perhaps focus in on this and investigate into whether this has become a threat to men. I realise this may have been touched on before, but to put a little spin on things, I would incorporate interviews with middle class, career driven males in their late 20’s early 30’s to give their opinion on whether a woman’s success as a threat to them.

I think having real life opinions and quotes from various different career driven male and females, will bring some diversity and bite to the article and shed light on whether woman’s roles in society are becoming more prominent than ever.

If you’re interested, given that I can get the interviews, I can turn this around by 7th April.

Yours sincerely,

Helen Clarke

The hot cloth cleanser: high end VS low end

Its no undisclosed fact within the beauty community that the secret behind glowing and squeaky clean skin is an effective hot cloth cleanser, and these two that I have picked out are especially amazing, and my ultimate faves in the cleanser department.

Now most of you will have heard countless reviews of the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser previously, even I have reviewed it (link here) however I thought I would write about it in comparison to a more affordable hot cloth cleanser, this is where I introduce super drugs ‘naturally radiant’ brightening hot cloth cleanser, which is priced at a very measly £2.99. Both cleansers are amazing at cleaning off makeup, grime and dead skin cells ready for a fresh and glowing complexion, The Liz Earle cleanser is priced at £13.25 which isn’t going to break the bank, however there is quite a price gap in-between both similar products so I thought I would share my thoughts on them.

The Superdrug cleanser differs to Liz Earle, as the consistency is much finer and runnier, because of this it is a little harder to control and rub into the skin, however it does completely melt off makeup in exactly the same way the Liz Earle does, and so this was a winning point for me. The muslin cloth, however could be a little, harsher? I’m not sure if its just me, but compared to the Liz Earle cloth this it just doesn’t seem to have the same feeling on the skin, it does take off makeup easily, however I don’t get that invigorating polish that Liz Earles cloth does for me.

 The smell of the Superdrug cleanser is very comparable to that of Liz Earle, with an herbal, fresh scent they are similar ingredients wise, however i’m pretty sure the Liz Earle uses all natural ingredients where as the Superdrug is a litter, soapier. However what I love about the Superdrug hot cloth cleanser is the after effect, my skin feels so subtle and looks radiant, which is a winning bonus for me.

Overall, I would say that both cleansers have there good points and there bad, if I was to be honest, I would go for the Liz Earle over the Superdrug cleanser only because It has always been my number one, go-to cleanser. However, for the price, the Superdrug is such a great product, and If you are on a budget its definitely worth going for the cheaper option as there aren’t many distinct differences between the two.
