Love2Smile this February and WIN! (CLOSED)

And the winner is … Tracy! Congratulations! I’ll be in contact soon. xoxo It’s national Fresh Breath Week and IVOhealth’s oral hygiene expert Dirna Grobbelaar shares top tips to give you the confidence you need to show of your pearly whites. Also stick around for details on how you can win a smile makeover worth R5 000 (a prize I would love to win!) and a fresh breath giveaway of our own. About 80 to 90% of bad breath comes from poor oral hygiene. “Brushing correctly, cleaning the tongue and interdental cleaning are key for fresh breath confidence that comes from a super-clean mouth,” says Grobbelaar. When plaque and food debris break down in the mouth they release foul odours, cause irritation and disease. An effective daily oral care routine should remove this bacteria from the teeth, gums and tongue. Brushing seems elementary but not everyone does it right. “Brushing correctly means two minutes, twice a day. Use a soft brush and fluoride toothpaste and slightly angle the brush to reach just under the gum line as well as the tooth surface.” Over a third of South Africans admit they never floss. “The mouth isn’t clean until it’s clean in-between,” says Grobbelaar. ”If floss is not your style choose an alternative. Sunstar GUM has the widest range of interdental tools in South Africa, with everything from tiny brushes and floss handles to high-tech toothpicks with built-in fluoride.” The tongue can be another hiding place for the baddies that cause bad breath. Gently scrape the tongue on a daily basis then gargle with alcohol-free mouthwash for extra fresh-breath confidence. Grobbelaar...

essence Valentine – Who Cares? Trend Edition Reviews, Swatches & a GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

And the winner is … PoOja RamSundar! Congratulations! I’ll be in contact soon. xoxo Well done essence! Valentine – Who Cares? is a definite winner. Beautiful, wearable shades and a lip colour that I have been searching for. Valentine – Who Cares? was released mid Jan and you better get your butt to Dis-Chem ASAP. You want this. Edgy and intense, yet totally wearable. This trend edition is by far my favourite one yet. Who doesn’t love an intense black kajal eyeliner? essence brings us a creamy and easy to blend eyeliner that retails for only R39. You can’t beat that. Smokey eyeshadow sticks? Yes please. And you want the metallic beige (01 love is in the air – don´t breathe!) and the shimmering khaki (02 l.o.v.e. blah blah blah). I adore both these shades. Only R48 each. Just be warned… the eyeshadow dries extremely fast, so you better move quick with the blending. Once it’s on, it stays on. In this collection you will also find the 01 guys allowed, NOT! translucent fixing powder. It’s going to take a lot of persuasion to put brush to product as it is just so pretty. But at R58 you can grab two. This lippie. Oh my. 02 i´m not into roses has stolen my heart. It’s a deep, dark red that I’ve been longing for. It’s very pigmented, it lasts well and it’s not drying. This is a brilliant budget buy. R48. GIVEAWAY TIME! The generous people at essence also sent me some goodies to give away. The hamper consists of: essence Valentine – Who Cares? Liquid lipstick 02 I’m not into roses essence Valentine...

Beauty: My favourite favourites of 2015

My sister often gets upset with me when I tell her about a product that I love. ‘But you said that one is your favourite?!’ She likes to give me the third degree. I try not to use the word favourite too often when talking about the things I love as there is just too many. There are a few products and services that stood out last year, so I have decided to share my favourite favourites of 2015 with you today. Let’s jump right in… Dermaceutic Mask 15 (and pretty much everything from this brand) If I had to choose just one skincare brand to use for the rest of my life, chances are that Dermaceutic will come up tops. I have raved about Mask 15 many times and I am still amazed by the results. Every. Single. Time. You can read my thoughts on the mask HERE. I have also been using Activ Retinol 1.0 and Turn Over. I will be posting a review on these two shortly. Keep an eye out as these products are amazing. REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial Want to wake up with smooth, bright, fresh-looking skin? Then this product is a must have. I love it. Pop over to read my full review HERE. BABOR New Skin Fluids Ampoule Concentrates FP Love. That is what it is. I used these ampules when I started at home derma rolling and my skin loves it. This product is definitely one of the top 5 best skincare products that I have ever used. Visible results almost instantly. Fresh-looking, plump and radiant skin. I would use these ampoules...
