Guest Contribution : Hey Gorgeous Calorie Free Super Sweet Cupcake Bath Bomb

When Fi sent me this to try out, my initial thoughts were definitely WOW! How is it possible to capture so many senses into something so small?CUPCAKE - POUT PERFECTION

Well as it turns out it is quite possible. When taking a first glance it looks like a yummy cupcake anyone would want to dive into and take a bite of. The only giveaway that it is not is the weight and the consistency.

It is a  bath bomb. If you are a bath taker like me, then you are probably familiar with bath bombs. Not only are they created to look pretty and smell nice and add a bit of fun to your bath water, but they also soften your water, moisturize your skin, soothe tired muscles and help you relax.20141220_174757

Hey Gorgeous uses all natural ingredients in their products and the cupcake bombs  are made with Epsom, Bicarb, Khoisan salts, Citric Acid, jojoba and essential oils. This product is 100% pure, natural and chemical free.

It is quite easy to use as well. You peel off the paper wrapping, break off a piece (or use the whole one) and pop it into your bath water. Easy as cake! The cupcake fizz gently while it dissolves. The water smells amazing and while you are having a wonderfully aromatic bath, the salts also do their job. My skin was so soft when I had finished my bath.

There is no specific target audience for this product as anyone can use this, from young to old, I mean who does not want to escape into relaxation and have a little bit of fun while doing it?

You can purchase these online at www.hey-gorgeous.com and they retails for R90-00 a pop.

DCL Skincare

A while back I had the privilege to attend an event at the Laserderm Aesthetic Clinic branch in Claremont for some informative information on the Gentle Max Pro Laser system as well as the DCL skincare range, which I was not familiar with at all but now I am and thought I would share this new found knowledge with you all.DCL

At a glance the Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories, otherwise known as DCL, looks somewhat pharmaceutical in appearance, crisp white with no graphics or imagery but rather just clearly labelled. This first impression is not far from the truth as the products are developed and collaborated with the medical field in order to create a “focus group” which marks out the development of the formulas in order to achieve the best possible result for the end user. The best news: DCL is cruelty free!

The company is 33 years old and co-pioneered the development of AHA’s, (Alpha Hydroxy Treatments) which are unique in their own right. Who wouldn’t want to be able to resurface their skin or address uneven skin tone and decongest pores all while ridding the skin of dead skin cells for great results in clarity and texture?

Similar to other skincare brands, DCL offer anti-ageing, eye care products, antioxidant products, specialised and general cleansing, specialised moisturising, specialised masks and specialised sun protections. The DCL products are a luxury skincare brand which is driven on results. As with most of the luxurious things in life, they are not cheap but can you place a price on the health of your skin?

Some of my top picks for the products within the range are:
