Sorbet Skincare Collection

Sometimes being a beauty blogger has additional perks like going to flashy events. Last week, I was fortunate to be invited to attend the launch of Sorbet’s latest offering. The Skincare Collection. The event was the #SorbetSkinShow which showcased the new range in a different light on a runway.

In a nutshell, this collection of skincare is split into 3 ranges for specific skin conditions, concerns and care. The ranges are:

Hydro SkinSorbet Hydro Skin

Developed specifically for tired and dehydrated skin that needs a boost. The 4 products in this range are designed to restore a bright and healthier looking complexion by incorporating moisture back into the skincare regimen.

Salon Skin Sorbet Salon Skin

Developed specifically for problematic skin concerns and curb irritated skin. Mixing a bit of science and nature together has resulted in the 8 products in this range which are designed to stop problem skin in its tracks.

Age EffectSorbet Age Effect

Developed specifically for mature skin that the signs of ageing skin are a concern. The 6 products in this range are an intense anti-ageing solution for a more plump youthful appearance with reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Over the course of the next few weeks I will be incorporating a few products into my skincare routine. I will share my experience with these products with you.

All of these items will be available at Clicks and Sorbet stores nationwide. I believe a great present for anyone who is looking for an updated skin routine over the next few weeks of festivities!

My new BFF…

Hi Poutlings…

I trust all is well and everyone is enjoying the Sunny South African weather that is upon us? 🙂

With that being said and in light of the post or image posted on facebook, I Would like to share my latest obsession with you all.

I’m not exactly sure what its called but know the branding is Full Circle, so lets stick to that for now.

What is this full Circle thing i speak of?

Well it’s my new Best Friend in Hydrating… Full Circle Wherever Lemon Water On the Go Glass, Water-Bottle.

Full-Circle-Wherever-Water-Lemon-On-the-Go-Glass-Water-Bottle

Firstly why i Absolutely LOVE this, Is because it is Glass, I am one of those very extremely fussy people that does not under any circumstances drink from a Plastic water bottle because they always end up smelling and tasting really Bad. The Full Circle bottle is made of Soda lime glass – the same material used in making wine bottles and other food storage containers.

Why Glass??

Glass is clearly a better choice for a water bottle. Plastic bottles can leach chemicals (Including BPA), Glass does not.

Plastic bottles are porous and can harbor bacteria- Glass does not.

Plastic bottles typical end up in landfills when their useful life is over, Glass is infinitely recyclable and reusable and therefore much better for the environment!

This Bottle is designed to minimize direct impact on glass if dropped.

Now for the fun part of this amazingly awesome bottle! 😀

Use the Built-in reamer to squeeze half a lemon in water, continue refilling with water all day for a fresh healthy beverage wherever you go!
Yes i said Built-in Reamer, why is this so amazingly awesome?

Because not everyone can drink the recommended amount of water to stay hydrated and therefore it is replaced with coffee, tea, soda and sugary beverages.

With this bottle you can add some creativity and flavor to your water to add to your water intake.

And yes it REALLY does help, I have gone from Minimum 5 cups of coffee a day to at least 2 and a half liters of water and loving it!!! 😀

Lemon, apple and Fresh Mint

Lemon, Apple and Fresh Mint

I have really been enjoying my fresh mint, Apple and Lemon water as well as just Lemon water.

How can Lemon be so good for you?

Lemon is a rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B and Riboflavin, and it’s packed with minerals like calcium, phosphorus and magnesium that do wonders for your body. Bottled lemon juice, or pre-mixed drinks, just won’t give you the benefits of freshly squeezed lemon juice. And the built-in reamer keeps the pesticides on the skins, out of your water.

Why Lemon water?

* Lemon water is a natural detoxifier for your body

*Aids in Digestion

*Keeps your skin youthful and glowing

*Freshens your breath

*Fights colds and infections

*Aids in weight loss

You can use your Wherever water bottle with Limes, Oranges and grapefruits as a low calorie, low sugar alternative to juice.

You can even mix them all together to make a refreshing citrus cooler.

You can also get creative:

*Lemon & Mint

*Lemon & Basil

*Raspberry * Lime

*Grapefruit * Orange

And so Many more.

I Absolutely love this bottle and will be adding a second one to my life just because i am so scared of not being able to find them again, haha yes i’m that type of person.

Where can you find them: They are available at Selective Woolwoorth’s stores,

And when i say selective i REALLY mean selective as i went to 4 different woolies just to end up finding it at the smaller woolies food in my area.

The damage:  These babies go for R109.99 which is a really tiny price to pay to a healthier life style.

Fresh Lemon

Don’t you just love how pretty it looks it also has a very comfortable handle to carry it by. I really love this baby and can without a doubt advice each and everyone to invest in one, especially with the really hot summers we get to experience in South Africa.

Have a fabulous Day Poutlings and stay hydrated,

remember it adds to a healthier life and better complexion 😉

Guest Contribution : Multi-Tasking Moisturisers

We are all on a lifelong mission to achieve or maintain flawless skin.  As we are forever bombarded with the latest fad which promises to brighten, tighten, firm and hydrate, knowing which products to choose can seem daunting. 

However, flawless skin doesn’t have to cost the world.  Achieving the perfect complexion requires well made products and a consistent, well honed skin care regime.  It needn’t be that complicated.  In fact, it should be the opposite! We don’t need hundreds of lotions and potions in order to have good skin.  That’s why I have wanted to share with you my top 5 multi-tasking moisturisers. 

 

Best for Spots

Moisturising is one of the best ways to achieve that airbrushed look as well as keeping wrinkles at bay.  However if you are prone to spots, the last thing you want to do is slap more products on then and further aggravate your skin.  Opt for lightweight, oil-free moisturisers like Skyn Iceland’s Pure Pore Minimiser.  Designed with stressed out skin in mind, this miracle cream will decongest and detoxify tired, lacklustre skin.  MOISTURISER 01

Best for Wrinkles

Hydration is key when you want to target the signs of premature aging.  Prolong your youthful appearance and ward off the first signs of aging with Nuxe’s Nirvanesque range.  Their 1st Wrinkles Smoothing Emulsion not only soothes and relaxes skin but the revolutionary plant-based solution reduces fine lines and wrinkles.  MOISTURISER 02

Best All Rounder

If like me you juggle a busy lifestyle and are trying to withstand the stresses of everyday modern life with hormonal changes as well as banish the first signs of aging then I cannot recommend this Intensive Hydra Gel Moisturiser enough.  Made using natural active ingredients including vitamin E and collagen to give your skin a boost, this oil free moisturiser from Love Your Skin not only water-based meaning it is suitable for all skin types but will also give your skin an intensive moisturising and hydrating experience.  MOISTURISER 03

Tuesday Product Review ~ Decléor Hydra Floral Moisturising Mask

Hello pretty poutlings!

Hope you’re all having a fantastic day!

So, today we will be reviewing

Decléor Hydra Floral Moisturising Mask 

This product sells for about R385 for 50ml

We received a trial size in our OCtober Rubybox, and one in our November Glambox.

 

This wonderful  mask give your skin a hydrating boost. It is suitable for all skin types, packed with comforting neroli oil (yay happiness) and leaves skin soothed, quenched and protected against environmental pollutants.

I did use this product only once. It is a great product from  a  great company as I said before I love the Neroli oil product, even though it is suitable for all skin types, it might be a little too rich for me as I got a few breakouts after using this product. My suggestion is that you visit your nearest beauty counter and get a trial size before you buy this product, especially if you have an oily T-zone.

Have a pouty perfect day!
