At the recent Freebees PR & Marketing Editors Function I spotted the latest little gem from La-Tweez, their Illuminating Tweezers.   I love anything that is cute and functional and this delivers on both.   Not only are they colourful and come in a chic carrying case with built-in magnifying mirror, it also has an ultra bright LED light for great visibility.   Now that’s pretty darn useful.         Available in pink, purple, yellow, green and blue at R250.00 from select salons, Sorbet, beauticians and spas only

Best Body Skin Review JHB

I am always looking for treatments that I have never tried before and only from the most professional people. You can’t take chances with your body or your face. That’s why I am so pleased to have discovered  Best Body Skin in Birdhaven.   Often salons which offer cutting- edge, skin and body treatments can feel intimidating, but no so with Best Body Skin. The staff, team of experts and the bright décor put one instantly at ease—especially important considering I was about to embark on a programme, which included multiple injections to my face!   After an in- depth consultation with somatologist Hajira, we decided to concentrate on the areas of my face, which cause me the greatest concern. Namely, pigmentation, dullness and loss of elasticity due to ageing, lack of sleep and general stress. In other words, I really wanted to try and recapture my youthful glow! NoRead More

Skin Renewal introduces the latest non-surgical facelift treatment

Before & After pics

Skin Renewal is very excited to introduce the Miracu Threadlift – a non-surgical, no-scar facelift.   The treatment, which has been a hot favourite in Europe and the East for a few years now, is now available via Skin Renewal in South Africa.   During the procedure, which only medical doctors are qualified to perform, multi-strand threads are injected deep underneath the surface of the skin, using different lengths of thin acupuncture needles. The threads are strategically placed, guided by the natural tension lines of the skin. Once placed, they act as a scaffold, lifting loose and sagging skin.     The procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, and further creates a frame for the collagen to attach to, showing effects similar to that of a surgical facelift. The threads are reabsorbed and dissolved over a period of time, but due to the stimulation of collagen, the treatment showsRead More

The Tan Lab Review

Posted on by Anouschka in Beauty & Body, Product Reviews, Reviews | Leave a comment

Being in constant pursuit of the perfect tan I’ve tried many sunless tanning products – some decidedly better than others.   Applying your tan is an art form in itself as you don’t want those tell tale streaks or patchy ankles & heels.   I was recently sent a package from The Tan Lab to test and review, which had some interesting new qualities.     Here’s some interesting background info from their website:   “After extensive product testing and research we established that many sunless tanning products contain only one active tanning ingredient – DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). Those containing a combination of Erythrulose and DHA proved to last longer, fade evenly and did not streak.   So, why didn’t all sunless tanning products contain Erythrulose? Firstly, it is much more expensive in comparison to DHA and secondly it takes longer to develop.   At The Tan Lab, we have created aRead More

Top 5 Favourite Beauty Treats Of 2014

Posted on by Anouschka in Beauty & Body, Latest News | Leave a comment

I’ve had many wonderful beauty treatments and reviewed many products this year, so I wanted to share my Top 5 with you. 1. Permanent Hair Removal This is my no.1 favourite beauty treatment this year, as I hardly have to shave at all any more. Yes, I still have some fine hairs which I do shave if I know I’m going out or to the beach, but otherwise they’re not noticeable at all and I can’t remember when last I shaved.   Here’s a before and after pic one week after shaving, before my 1st treatment and after my last (6th treatment) I’ve done all my treatments at Legs Eleven and cannot recommend them highly enough. They are specialised in this field and really help you through your ‘Journey To Smooth’ with sound advice and amazing service. Very well priced as well.   2. Self Tanning Oil My next favouriteRead More

I was asked to take part in the Africology Renew and Revive this Summer Blogger Campaign, where we received an Africology Deluxe Hamper to review.    The hamper consists of the Africology Cellulite Detox Body Oil and the Africology Slimming Detox Cream.    As soon as the sun starts to make an appearance we all seem to come out of hiding (well at least the Capetonians seem to hibernate) and it’s time to get Summer ready.   Even though we should try to maintain our beauty routines all year round, it’s much easier when we’re not dressed in several layers of clothing, so now’s the time to put in that little bit of extra effort. To start you off, I’ve shared my Top 10 ‘Get Summer Ready’ Tips:   1. Water, water, water!!! Water is your best friend for so many reasons. It’s great for all your organs, especially your skin (your largest organ),Read More

It Pays To Go Green

Posted on by Anouschka in Beauty & Body, Latest News | Leave a comment

  The lovely peeps at Beauty Factory recently sent this package my way, and their ‘go green’ strategy really impressed me.   Not only do they make stunning luxury bath & body products, they also reward you when you ‘go green’.   Just bring your empty product packaging back to a Beauty Factory store, and they will not only recycle it, but also give you 20% off a similar Beauty Factory product.   How awesome is that! Big thumbs up to Beauty Factory – truly love this!   Luxury handwash in Desert Dune & Morning Dew R89.90 each.   They often have specials on their website so be sure to pop in regularly.   Website: Facebook Page:      

Cinderella’s Secret Is Out

Posted on by Anouschka in Beauty & Body, Latest News, Product Reviews, Reviews | Leave a comment

While running the Cinderella’s Secret competition for you all, I was lucky enough to be sent a surprise package of all these wonderful goodies to try myself.   I am totally in love with these bath products and my son keeps asking me why I smell so good 😉   My favourite product is probably the Body Scrub. I use it in the shower and as it is a creamy body scrub, not only does it exfoliate, it immediately moisturises as well, leaving your skin super-soft and smooth. Another great tip is to use it to do your important breast examination every week in the shower.  My aunt has just been diagnosed with breast cancer so I can’t stress enough how vital this is for all of us to do regularly. My next favourite are the bath products. I adore the bath milk and my kids have already finished theRead More
