Esse Range Of Cleansers

If you love Esse then you’ll love their range of cleansers.   Most people associate probiotics (good microbes) with maintaining a healthy gut, but new research has shown that microbes are also essential for perfect skin.   There are ten microbes for every human cell in your body and this finding has turned the conventional view of skin on it’s head. Skin is a complex ecosystem – an intricate, intermingled mix of human and microbial cells that work together to optimise barrier function and keep moisture in.   Esse has used this new revelation to formulate products that maintain a balance of microbes to slow the ageing process. To do this, Esse uses prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and they’ve used probiotic microbes in some products to deliver specific results.

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
