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! 🙂

****FELICIDADES****

Heya Poutlings!

Being a major fan of the beautiful Shakira and one of the most supportive fans of the football club Barcelona, I’d love to wish Gerard Pique and Shakira a Pouting CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of their baby boy Milan Piqué Mebarak.

pique

The birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain.
 The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.
Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.
The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6lbs. 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.

We at Pout wish them all the happiness in the world with their new bundle of joy baby Milan.

MODEL ALERT : Julia Nobis

Heya Poutlings!

I love sharing with you some of the fantastic models I think are real ROLE MODELS to anyone that is aspiring to be the best model they can be… and let’s be clear, I’m talking about REAL modeling, not just looking shit hot to be some masturbation material for teenage boys and balding men! Actually, making a living from modeling, people paying you to do it… You know what I mean, right? Good. Let’s continue….

Last time, I introduced Anja Rubik, who is no less than amazing and such a HUGE name in the industry. Today, I present a model who is young, relatively new to the industry compared to Anja, but I think we haven’t seen the apex of this particular models career to date.

JULIA NOBIS

Julia Nobis is no doubt a rising star. She was only discovered in 2009.She has a unique look with a particular strong appearance. She’s known for playing guitar backstage before a show.

BEFORE AND AFTER BEING DISCOVERED WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL

Julia started modeling locally, in Australia, at the age of 16.

Her first time on an international catwalks was during CALVIN KLEIN fall 2010 in New York and she exclusively walked only for them.

 

The next step on Julia’s modeling career was during the same season but this time on the runways of London Fashion Week. She opened the fall TOPSHOP in London and also closed the RICHARD NICOLL show. During her time in London she got invites to Milan and Paris and she ended up walking for PRADA, DOLCE & GABANA, LOUIS VUITTON, VALENTINO, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA and MIU MIU Fall fashion shows and as you can imagine she became well known as one of the best newcomers into the fashion world to date.

Later on in 2010 she walked for her first couture show, VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE in Paris.

2011 Spring fashion shows she opened and closed the POENZA SCHOULER fashion show and also walked for BURBERRY, ALEXANDER WANG, LOUIS VUITTON, CHANEL and BALENCIAGA runways. She also presented looks at the spring CHANEL and ELIE SAAB couture fashion shows.

 

During Spring 2012, FASHIONTV’s FIRST FACE COUNTDOWN featured Julia Nobis as number 3. She was beat by Anja Rubik and Amyeline Valade.

Currently, Julia has only been on one fashion magazine cover, Australian Vogue featured her in 2011 where she posed for the photographer Kai Z Feng.

She has appeared in a number of editorials for British and Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused, Interview and W Magazine.

What I particulary love about this model is that she lives an alternative lifestyle, she has broken the international stereotype of MODEL! Julia is really into martial arts, some of her favourite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage and Rage Against the Machine. She has the perfect mix in her book of “alternative” or should I say edgy shots combined with standard commerical and high fashion couture! The proof is in this models book, and I think she’s got it nailed. Don’t you??

So, models and models-in-training, are you inspired?
