    Miss Hannah actually brought this to my attention, but I haven't seen it mentioned here yet. UK ladies may be interested that Boots just brought out a vintage range based on their original products. The packaging looks lovely, and their products are usually good quality.

    Hopefully you US ladies will get it in Target at some point!

    Ohh WOW.. I will have to see if I can find some of this to bring back to the states... cause it takes forever for Taget to carry new products :)

    I got the Rose Cold Cream and it is lovely - very rich and softening, although a little too perfumed to use on the eyes for me. It comes in a cute glass jar with a black screw top - heartily recommended! And it leaves you smelling gorgeous too.

    Those bottles are divine! So pretty. I wonder why Boots can't deliver outside the UK? I understand the reason for their pharmacy, but you'd think they could send make-up and such through the mail.

    It's not cheap! I spent almost £20 on 3 items. Still, it's all glass and not plastic, and so pretty.

    True! The rose cold cream is £5-£6 for a small jar, whereas their regular cold cream is a couple of quid for a pretty big pot. It IS nice though! And still a whole lot cheaper than L'oreal!

    What stores did you ladies get the boots products? I want to bring some back with me to the states and I would not have a clue where to look :)

    Boots is an actual drug store in the UK, sort of like Walgreens. They have the vintage formulas at the Target on Tustin in Orange now :)

    I actually went into a Boots store today and it was lovely! I bought my boots stuff and a load of LUSH products from the Lush store in Bath.

    Oh its sooo beautiful out here and I actually think I will be renting a flat out for the summer!

    Yay! Boots!

    Just wanted to say that I purchased the Boots rose vanishing cream and cold cream from Target. They're great and smell lovely. I'm so happy they sell it here in the states now. I hope they don't decide to stop carrying it. The packaging is very lovely, however, it's the same on each item. I was hoping they'd change it up from product to product. I wish they made the cold cream in a slightly larger size. The vanishing cream will probably last me a year! hah!

    There's an offer now on boots website on these; I'll go to the store tomorrow and get some vanishing cream if the offer is not on line exclusive; I have tried it the other day on my hand and it seemed lovely, but since I'm skint I always have to hunt for deals. there's a 3 pounds saving on it now, so I'll give it a go.

    I got a few tings when I was in Dublin a few months ago and I quite like them, neither product has a strong scent and the packaging is cute. I got the face toner, overnight cream and hand cream.. Great stuff, not miracleworkers but good!

    I bought the cleansing milk, toner and cold cream the other day. Against my better judgement, I also bought the lip salve (£4.69 for a pot smaller than Vaseline!!) but it's so lovely, I'm letting myself off.

    They are amazing- my skin feels so soft since using them :)

    I just bought a few of these products for my sister's birthday, she likes it as far as I can tell... but mostly I was attracted to the packaging. It's gorgeous, the colours are just right and the type is lovely.
