# 106 Oh No You Di'n't!

This recently landed in my inbox and necessitated a prompt response:

TREAT YOURSELF GIRLFRIEND!


Hot on the heels of the hugely successful makeover show, How To Look Good Naked, comes a brand new fragrance and beauty range of the same name.

Perfect for much deserved pampering or as a Christmas gift for friends and relatives, the range includes luxury stocking fillers and head-to-toe gift sets. All presented in stunning lilac and cream bottles, they are almost too good to open!


Now, it might sell like Cream Egg McFlurries, but regardless of how well you're able to style up a bargain bin item, there's no dressing up an endorsement-whore after a quick cash-fix...

...and I've always thought the world of Gok - good and funny and sweet and sensible.... but a "beauty" range (stocked at Argos) is a monumental mis-step...

...and it really ain't his style.

Hi, I think Gok's stuff is being brought out at Boots, not Argos according to this article: http://www.theredpages.co.uk/public/news.aspx?id=4463

Hi there - it's going to be stocked at several venues (including Argos)... I used a bit of artistic license there. hee hee.

The ad was too good to be true, it sounds very promising. But it lacks authenticity by the way it was written.

That’s a very inviting ad but it’s not very convincing. Actually it’s kind of funny reading it.

There are two so called Gok ranges...and the HTLGN range has nothing to do with Gok at all... Gok's own range, Gorgeous by Gok, is out in Boots while the HTLGN is out in Argos. Have been meaning to post about this - how did it happen? A bizarre attempt by both to jump on the bandwagon, but both sides must be livid.....
