Patently Obvious – Smarter cleansing kinder to the planet

February 29, 2008

January 2008: Ever wanted to clean with a green conscience but without the performance compromise? A new range of personal cleansing products which for the first time combines a patented* natural antibacterial action and biodegradable formulation means you can do just that.

Smarter cleansing that’s better for you and kinder to the planet

Patently Obvious, a new range of hand washes and shower gels from KMI Ltd, the innovative company behind the King of Shaves brand is about to be launched in Boots.


The range is designed for people who want to use everyday products on their skin containing more natural ingredients yet don’t want to compromise on cleansing performance.

Andy Hill, Managing Director of KMI said, “When we started developing this range in 2005 we wanted to create natural, environmentally friendly cleaning products made and manufactured in the UK with no compromise on performance or design. Nothing else on the market offered that, so we developed what has become the Patently Obvious brand.”

The unique SLES and parabin free, naturally preserved PureTect antibacterial formula makes Patently Obvious ultra mild and non-drying whilst also being tough on germs. With delicious scents including Pomegranate and Raspberry Ripple, Mint Leaf and Lime Sherbet, Patently Obvious leaves skin feeling beautifully soft and smelling delicious without the need for any nasty preservatives – making it the perfect hygienic solution for all the family.

Stunning, contemporary packaging design including vibrant shades of mint, raspberry and mandarin set Patently Obvious apart from other cleansing products and with the custom designed bottles using 100% post consumer recycled plastic, the new range is a cool and colourful addition to any kitchen and bathroom whilst also being kind to the environment.

Boots will begin stocking Patently Obvious from March 2008. The range will include:

Hand Wash. 300ml. Mint & Lime; Lavender; Pomegranate & Raspberry. RRP £3.99

Hand Foamer. 300ml. Mint & Lime; Lavender. RRP £3.99

Hand Gel Wash. 300ml Mint & Lime; Lavender; Pomegranate & Respberry; Kumquat & Mandarin. RRP £3.99

Pocket Hand Sanitiser 50ml. Fragrance and colour-free. RRP £2.99

What Girlie Gossip Thought…

We recently tried a few samples from this range and were really impressed! In our opinion they offer up everything you want and need in a brand, great packaging, antibacterial properties and they smell great! All whilst caring for the environment at the same time. What more could you ask for?

We especially fell in love with the Raspberry and Pomegranate hand wash which smells absolutely divine and looks fab in a cute bubble shaped dispenser.

Look out for this in shops!

CSI 7.2 Competition

February 18, 2008

Read on to find out how you can win CSI Season 7: Episodes 7.13-7.24


The DNA of great DVD entertainment

Since its debut, CSI has become a television phenomenon, enjoying immense critical and popular success as the world’s most successful TV franchise. Season 7 of the series about a Las Vegas forensics team is the number one drama on US television for the fifth consecutive year, and was also consistently rated the number one drama among all syndicated programmes during its two-year run on syndicated television. The show has also spurred renewed interest in the field of forensic science, both on an academic and professional level.

Sold in over 200 markets, CSI is also the top-rated U.S. drama in multiple international territories. The show has garnered 24 Emmy nominations, six Golden Globe Award nominations and won the People’s Choice Award for Favourite Drama Series four years in a row.

Set for DVD release on 25 February 2008 courtesy of Momentum Pictures, CSI Season 7 Episodes 7.13-7.24 begins with Grissom taking a hiatus from the team. While he asks secret love interest Sara Sidle to join him, Sara honours her professional responsibilities and remains in Las Vegas.

Season 7, Part 2 also features Lindsey being kidnapped, and the team struggles to get her back. Catherine is experiencing family drama when her father is kidnapped, and she also comes up against mob-legend Mickey Dunn, who she’d met briefly years back. Catherine and her team follow Dunn on his killing spree although his costume changes give the investigators a run for their money.

Greg Sanders finds himself the victim of a street gang beating. Without backup, Greg fights a gaggle of teenagers to save an innocent man’s life. In the process, Greg ends up accidentally killing one of the kids. Facing legal repercussions, Greg struggles to put the fateful night behind him.

The team also deals with the new CSI on board during Grissom’s hiatus: the secretive Michael Keppler (Liev Schreiber). When he and Catherine stage a crime scene to nab their killer and fail to alert the rest of the team to their actions, Nick, Warrick and Sara voice their resentment.

CSI trivia:

Under the glass top of Grissom’s desk is a photo of the series’ executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

All the equipment in the lab is fully functional, and was either purchased outright, or donated/loaned to the show for product placement.

The original name of William Petersen’s character was Gil Scheinbaum. He changed it to Gil Grissom because of his admiration for astronaut Gus Grissom.

The extreme popularity of this TV series was credited for a large surge of applications for courses in forensic science.
