Summer Skin Sorted

Having just come back from a whirlwind overseas holiday to the amazing Italy and leaving the winter behind I was petrified of my lily white skin getting burnt to a crisp in the beautiful Rome, Tuscan and Milan heat. Fortunately, before I left, I got my paws on a product which I immediately thought would be amazing in preventing any burns, to my face anyway.

Meet Juliet (Armand SUN FILM 30), the other half to my Rome(-o) trip of Italy. The saviour of my skin. My new love and must-have product for summer 2014.

Meet Juliet (Armand SUN FILM 30), the other half to my Rome(-o) trip of Italy. The saviour of my skin. My new love and must-have product for summer 2014.

This little gem is from Juliette Armand, the Greek brand who focuses on your skin mood, rather than needs. The Sun Film Gel 30 boasts guaranteed protected against UVA and UVB rays to the highest standard, all while providing a slight tint to the skin (which lasts, doesn’t rub off or disappear a few hours to applying it) to ensure that your face is flawless.This product, was right up my alley for skin mood as it was in the mood for relaxation, minimal makeup, lots of sunshine and taking in all the tourist-y sights that Italy had on offer.

I religiously made use of the product following my normal skin care routine every morning before heading out for breakfast, I did not burn, at all. That on its own is a complete miracle as this British skin has 2 colours, white and red like the St. Georges flag. I may have come back without a tan, but that is fine as I did not come back with red, peeling or sore skin. *This used to be the story of my life!

Using my Sun Film, I replaced the need for me to wear a foundation or powder as it leaves the skin with a healthy subtle glow that lasts while providing much needed sun protection. The formula initially seemed a bit thick compared to other products I have used in the past, but when applied to your hand it spreads with the heat of your hand into a smooth, non-greasy formula which results in a wonderful slightly dewy finish thanks to the beautiful tint. When applying to your face there is a slight cooling sensation which is always welcome when the weather seems a bit humid.

I found that the product lasts, and only one day, when sightseeing and doing the typical tourist thing visiting the Coliseum and Roman Forums that I had to reapply my Sun Film as the heat was unbearable and I thought I’d rather be safe than sorry. The tube is small and fit into my handbag no problem. The Sun Film gel incorporates specialised anti-oxidant protection which is unique to the Juliet Armand sun protection range.

ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION

The Sun Film Gel 30 goes a long way and retails for R465 for 55ml and is available at selected stockists nationwide, please contact Poise Brands to find out one near you. This has become my must-have product for our upcoming summer months, especially over December when everything goes on a go-slow, including my makeup routine.

Downsides to the product – my man refused to use my sun cream as it looks like makeup and well that resulted in one burnt travel buddy but that is not really my fault, I offered it and he refused 😉

Thank you Juliet Armand for saving my face from the Italian rays and making my holiday that little more pleasant by relieving me of sun burn issues! 🙂

World’s Penis Chart…

If you’ve had a craving for rain forests, untapped deposits of raw minerals, and gigantic penises, now’s the time to head to the Republic of Congo.

Hiya Poutlings 🙂

A new study ranked the world’s countries by average length of erect penises and found that the Congo is home to the most well-endowed individuals. At 18.034cm, their enormous sex organs put them at the top, just above the male populations in Ecuador – 17.78cm, Ghana – 17.272cm, Columbia – 17.018cm, and Iceland 16.51cm.

Wondering where the USA falls on the world’s penis chart? Get out your magnifying glass … you’re gonna need it.

The average penis size of an American man is 12.954cm, landing them the 25th percent, behind the U.K. with 13.97cm, Spain also with 13.97cm, and Canadas also at 13.97cm, as well. Poor Americans. So many huge SUVs polluting the World’s Ozone layer, so many little penises.

If heading to the Congo really isn’t your thing, you might want to consider a trip to Italy. They came in 6th out of 113 nationalities with an average length of 15.748cm. Pasta, pizza, gelato, aqueducts, wine, art, romance, history, bucolic landscapes, ancient cities, and enormous baloney ponies? Italy really is a dream land…. If you have no sarcasm filter, this statement is sarcasm.

South Africa came in after Italy, 7th place according to this study, at 15.24 centimeters. Yay. Go TEAM SA. Please wave your flags around safely. Be wise, condomise, and all that jazz.

The research was done by a professor at Ulster University and some are critiquing its validity, saying he got his “facts” from the Internet, but come on. It’s a study on schlong sizes. Of course you use the web to glean data on this – it’s not like the professor took a ruler around the world and demanded men to whip out their peters.

But if that is what he did, I wonder if he needs a research assistant next year… I think I know the perfect candidate for him. hahaha.

Here’s part of the list, just for reference:
