Annie reviews

So who the hell is Annie?

Annie is a 55 year old Sassista with a gift for product acquisition. Her bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room and even the outside shed is a veritable graveyard of loved, liked, loathed, left-over and yet-to-be lathered-on products.

She has sample boxes delivered every month, cannot pass a pharmacy without trying a container promising perfection and offers guests more solutions and serums than is decent. Other than that she is quite normal.

So Annie has been co-opted onto the Staying Sassy panel as resident multi-tester. Every week she and her team will recommend just one product which leapt out of the mass and made them feel Sassy. There will be no scientific analysis, no influence from marketing departments, no product to sell. Annie and her team have only one mission:

Try it, like it, Sassy-test it and recommend it.
