Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara – You want this!

Most of us have a holy grail mascara. I used to. My all time favourite was a tube mascara by a Japanese cosmetics company, but I stopped using it as it became way too expensive. I was devastated. I have used many mascaras over the years and I love many, but none ever came close to ‘the one’. Until I discovered the new Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara. Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara – You want this! This is what Revlon has to say: Desire oversized lashes and multiplied benefits? Introducing Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara, our breakthrough formula combines buildable fibers and 360º tubes to deliver mega volume and extreme length for an oversized lash look that won’t smudge or smear! Revlon’s unique approach combines fibers and 360º tubes in one step for plumped and extended lashes that get noticed. TUBE TECHNOLOGY Unlike traditional mascaras, Revlon’s tubing mascara features a polyurethane copolymer base with the benefits of waterproof mascara without the tough removal, as it removes easily with warm water. Upon application, the copolymer binds creating an adhesive encasement around each lash (also known as a “360º tube”) that won’t wear off or flake. FIBER FORMULA Fiber formula provides additional volume and length, and when combined with tube technology, lush lashes are instantly flake-free and smudge-proof in one step. Revlon takes Mega Multiplier Mascara one step further by using two uniquely shaped microfibers, triangular and heart, for a formula that gives you an oversized lash look with both volume and length. When I received the press release about Revlon’s new mascara, I freaked when I read the word ‘tube’. I immediately phoned...

Hair Loss Update: I love my hair again!

Earlier this year I didn’t think that I would ever say these words again, but I love my hair! Hair Loss Update: I love my hair again! I really love my hair. It’s such a great feeling. And I’m getting my confidence back! And I am loving my short hair. Now that is something I never thought I’d ever say in a million years. And I went even shorter after the big chop (that you can read about HERE). If you’re not familiar with my hair loss story, you are welcome to pop over HERE. The following pics will also make a lot more sense then. Look at all that hair!! I still can’t believe that my hair is so thick and healthy. The ‘going-on-bald’ patch I had on my head is gone! (Yes, there are way too many exclamation marks in this post, but I am just so damn happy and excited. Forgive me.) I also have my curls back. And they are back with a vengeance! This has been quite a ride. Not a fun one. I know I’m extremely lucky that it all turned out the way it has. And it’s all thanks to the following… The Renewal Institute I told you about how Skin & Body Renewal helped me get to the root of my problem (I know; I love puns) in the hair loss post I mentioned earlier. Their love and care has meant the world to me. Plus they were the ones that taught me the importance of supplementing your diet with vitamins and minerals, especially during times of extreme stress. I am now...

Our little girl is a movie star!

Last year Cara and I spent a few days in Prins Albert and last month we finally had the chance to see the end product of the project she was a part of… our girl is a movie star!!! Our little girl is a movie star! It still seems so unreal and I’m still not really sure how it happened. But I can’t take any credit. This girl is our superstar. And now, Cara van der Westhuizen, you are a movie star! Liewe Kersfeesvader Liewe Kersfeesvader is an Afrikaans movie that will be hitting the big screens on 17 November 2017! And we will be booking out the whole cinema. A teenage beauty queen is flung into swift adulthood when her father assumes a new identity: Father Christmas. Juggling a crazy father, an impressionable kid brother and a growing romance, Nonnie has to redefine her own meaning of family. – www.imdb.com The role of Nonnie is played by the amazingly talented Mila Guy. There are flashbacks in the movie of Nonnie as a little girl… played by Cara van der Westhuizen!! I am so proud I can burst!! We attended the world premiere of Liewe Kersfeesvader at the Kyknet Silwerskermfees on 25 August and it was magical. Get ready to laugh and cry – Liewe Kersfeesvader is a must see. I would like to thank Etienne Fourie (writer and director), Stefan Enslin (producer), JP du Preez (Novo Sound), Milan Murray en Morné Visser. You were all so amazing with Cara, on set and after. And Etienne and Stefan, thank you for allowing Cara to be a part of this...

Brand Focus: Biomedical Emporium

I was invited to experience a Biomedical Emporium facial peel by the kind people of Tosca Hair & Beauty in July and I am so glad they did. I have been using Biomedical Emporium skin care products for the last couple of weeks and I am amazed with the results. AMAZED. I’ll tell you more about the products I’m using, as well as their treatments, and how my skin is responding at a later stage; for now I want to share more info on the brand itself. Brand Focus: Biomedical Emporium Who is Biomedical Emporium? Our passion derives from proven dermatology products that have a real impact on skin and health. Extensive research and development by Dr Judey as well as the Department of Human Biology at the University of Cape Town has led to incorporate the first and very unique tertiary structure tissue-protective peptide technology, that promotes advanced cellular turn-over rates as well optimal skin densification and dermal hydration. Intrinsic and extrinsic environmental factors are taken into consideration during the formulation of all cosmeceutical products. Some products are formulated specificaly based on the client’s or patient geographical location as skin oxidation rates differs from area to area. How is this science applicable today?  What do we have to do to obtain skin cell harmony? We need products that will address all the mechanisms of aging – a product of a “cosmeceutical” nature.  In other words applying a product that works on cellular and molecular level in order to be potently effective and safe and to ultimately stimulate a therapeutic response. Biomedical Emporium Products The respective Biomedical Skin care ranges were developed...
