Gransnet Adverts

Do we all get the same adverts on Gransnet? If so I was wondering if anyone had purchased any of the make-up that purports to make you much more attractive using magic creams, enhancers. Have any of you tried any of these? The adverts showing the difference looks great. Not sure if they really work though or indeed it's the expertise of applying them properly.

I doubt that we get the same ads. I live in Germany and get ads for German products. They are usually related to searches or purchases I have made over the internet. It depends on your cookie settings.

What does amaze me is that I sometimes get ads in German for something mentioned in the Gransnet thread I am just reading, although the thread is of course in English.

I get makeup ads all the time, they drive me nuts. I have bought some of the makeup advertised (not as a result of GN advertising!) and I wasn’t impressed.

I get ads for things I've spoken about.
My phone bugs me!

I get irritating video ads across the whole page, between two Gransnet posts. One shows three women, others show some dish or other being made. Another shows a woman with a personal trainer. The sound is off so I can’t hear them but I do find them greatly annoying.

It’s got nothing to do with application it’s all done with filters.

I haven’t seen any adverts like that Nobody. Either the advertising algorithm thinks I’m beautiful enough or it thinks I’m beyond redemption grin

So do I and shops like Boden where I buy the odd thing.
I always find amusing the list that is given of things that grans netters are buying, some are helpful but others the price of them on pensions!!!!

I love reading that list Yammy. Some of it makes me smile, but sometimes it gives me helpful hints to products I might want to buy. Today’s list includes Simple eye balm that might suit my sensitive skin.
