Benefit b.right! Radiant Skincare Line - Launching April 2011

Some of the Lotions and potions in the range
•Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA ++ |
•Moisture Prep Toning Lotion | This has a gel-like texture instead of a liquid one. This product is meant to be applied before moisturizer to prep the skin and help it absorb all the ingredients (and benefits) from the moisturizer.
•Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydration Mist | A spritzy, cooling mist scented lightly (smells like refreshing cucumber) – to revive tired skin
In conjunction with their brightening makeup products (such as Benefit High Beam and Benefit Girl Meets Pearl), this skin care line will help your face look and feel more radiant from morning to night. Their Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ is labelled with PA, the new ranking that refers to the sun protection from UVA rays. On a scale from 1 to 4, the great number of plus symbols means the higher protection from UVA rays, which will help prevent long term sun damage

A conflict of perception

Wow Wow and Wow - Jack Guisso Spectrum S/S 2011 .

Sinzinani Open Day 2010

This was my very first open day at Sinzinani Day Spa at the absolutely gorgeous Thaba ya Batswana. It was absolutely massive with over 200 people enjoying a fun night out of pampering and cocktails.  

The winners of the Restylane and Opalescence
Millners Dental sponsored two 15% Trewhite kits as prizes and the wonderful people from Conquest surgical sponsored 5 amazing filler prizes ( total cost over R16000!) as well as all the products used for the demos. I was doing demos and answering questions from 4PM to 10Pm, it was exhausting but loads of fun. There's no sign of me in the pics - I was too busy!

The prizes and products. Besides the treatment winners
also received an awesome goodie bag with a mirror, snazzy eye mask,
make-up bag and a Hyaluronic Acid After Care Creme

Philip Kingsley - Quite impressed!

The fantastic Beauty Bulletin Babes sent me some goodies to test out! Woohoo! My Brazilian blowout didn't turn out the way I thought it would which I'm quite sad about, I was thinking I could have spent all that dosh on something else! A weekend away even. *Sigh* Bygones.

So after needing some hair beauty boosting and pampering I was delighted to receive a Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Shampoo and Condtioner and the Elasticizer. I tried them out immediately!
The Verdict : Excellent products, my hair did feel softer and was definitely shinier and looked healthier. They are all great detanglers and I was super pleased that the pesky knot (the one that shows up now and then near the nape of my neck) was obliterated. Today I used some Tresemme just to see how big the difference is. My hair feels so bleh in comparison and definitely not as soft. I'm truly impressed with the Philip Kingsley.

With Elasticizer

Lol, I was in search of a new red lipstick, since I
lost mine from MAC and I couldn't remember what it was called.


Really love the bottles

After the 1st use of the products.OOOOOh so shiny

No additional styling aids or products, it just
smoothly set into my natural waves

Sorry Bad picture quality, took this with my Blackberry

After the second use. Also I'm not a hair drying maverick, this
is my hair naturaly dried with no hair dryer or Ghd. Also no additional products
were used , just the Philip Kingsley stuff. I'm pretty damn impressed!

Love the flip top squeeze bottle, really
easy to handle

The Beauty Bulletin Bounty (yes,on a yoga mat)

Awesome stuff!

"This great, highly concentrated product is designed to smooth your hair, leaving it incredibly smooth and supple. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer even has an added sunscreen protection.

It’s super moisturising and highly concentrated, smoothing each strand to incredible silkiness. Its elasticising effect improves suppleness, stretchability, strength and shine whilst leaving your hair softer, less brittle, beautifully manageable and lustrous.
