I received these gorgeous fragranced body wash gifts from LUX to test and review, and a few extra to hand out to family and friends and find out what they think about these as well.   We received the Soft Touch and the Sheer Twilight.   Composed by one of the world’s best perfume experts, Calice Becker (Who also created Beyonce Paradise, J’adore and Tommy Girl)  Lux Soft Touch has alluring fine fragrances that inspire and empower women.   The LUX fragranced body wash lathers up well, so you only need to use a small amount.    I definitely prefer the Sheer Twilight body wash which is fragranced with pearls of black orchid and juniper oil.  The perfume claims to last up to 8 hours, and although I can’t smell it on myself, my husband did say that I smelt nice.   Have you tried either of these before? And ifRead More

[Review] Elgydium Whitening & Sensitive Toothpaste

I received the Elgydium Whitening and Sensitive toothpastes to review.    I have to be upfront here and tell you that for the last 10 years, I have ONLY used a herbal toothpaste from Europe that is more salty than sweet.  My main concern with testing a toothpaste was that it would be sweet and frothy like most regular types in SA.    I tried the whitening toothpaste first, as I don’t really have sensitive teeth and hey – who wouldn’t want whiter teeth!   I’m very relieved to be able to revert that Elgydium is not super sweet at all.  I have been happily using it, and it isn’t very foamy either. I was very pleasantly surprised. I know that this is a very personal requirement, but I just can’t bear to brush my teeth with a sugary, foamy substance.   I haven’t been using it long enough to see the whiteningRead More

Well, it had been at least a year since my last facial (my dermatologist suggested I not do any treatments to my face because my rosacea flare-up was quite severe) but it seemed to have settled down so I decided to brave a facial from this spa— call it a good intuition.   I knew that they meant serious business and that I would in safe hands when the owner of the spa, Ayesha,wanted to know everything about my skin. So, I shared my sorry tale with her (of dehydration, rosacea and sensitivity) and she assured me that the treatment would be customised for my particular skin conditions. Ayesha, a true beauty professional, owned a spa for many years before this and has ensured that Urban Bliss well and truly lives up to its name. A little hideaway in the middle of buzzing Emmarentia, you must be warned that onceRead More

I’ve been visiting Style Bar in Constantia for a few months, and I recently got the chance to try out their Palmyra branch.   Once again the salon was busy with clients popping in for product advise or just to say ‘Hi’ to their stylist.   My stylist was super fast and I left with extra time on my hands, which was an added bonus.   As my hair was pretty dry after the Summer, she advised to add a treatment. The Schwarzkopf BC Bonscure Power Shot Repair Concentrate did absolute wonders to my hair, which is now soft and bouncy and looking so much healthier.     If you haven’t had a treatment before, then your hair is missing out on some serious pampering. So here’s your chance to spoil yourself and your mom as well.   You can WIN a Treatment and Blow Dry for you and yourRead More

After chatting to Dr Kim Prescott from Anuyu Body and Skin, she invited me to experience the pHformula A.G.E. facial which is a range she came across in Europe.   On returning to Cape Town, she introduced this range to her Wynberg spa and I asked her why this particular product stood out for her.   Kim explained that pHformula was hitting Wow factor in London for quick and very good results, but was still very new here. It is developed in Barcelona using a new generation approach (multiple gentler fruit acids, lactic acid, lactobionic acids etc) and a high technology skin delivery system for enhanced penetration of active products.   Very importantly, they are trialled on sun-exposed skins – both in Spain and Middle East. Most of glycolic ranges are developed for use in Caucasian skins and there are big risks for inflammatory responses and hyperpigmentation – or hypopigmentationRead More
