April Fools Joke on Myself By Lorraine Penn

Today being 1st April, also known as ‘April Fools Day’ where we tend to play jokes on one another.

Well, today I managed to play a pretty concerning joke on myself by applying hair remover cream to my eyes instead of ‘eye cream’. Both products are in similar containers in the same bathroom cabinet draw.

Thank goodness for the distinct difference in the fragrance between the eye cream and the hair remover was discovered on time.

On discovering the vast fragrant distinction I quickly realised, just in time, what I had done and rushed to cover my eyes in warm soapy water to remove the hair remover cream and hopefully not find eye lashes in my hand.

A lesson learnt remove the location of the hair remover cream from where I stock the eye cream.
