Starting Quick with Mio in the Mornings

QuickStart Shower Cream Tube 200ml_300dpi print...I’ve been dying for ages to get my paws on a tube of exhilarating shower gel from Mio ever since I have experienced their Liquid Yoga, I am completely in love with this brand! Like all their products, the QuickStart shower gel main objective is to give you FIT SKIN FOR LIFE but this one in particular is to give you CLEAN & FIT SKIN FOR LIFE while leaving you feel ready to tackle any challenges of the day ahead. Mio wants you to wake up happy! With QuickStart that is an objective that can be set even when missing your routine cup of coffee (just don’t skip the shower – you need to the magic of the QuickStart!)

While QuickStart cleansing the skin, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and leaves the skin brighter and relieves any swelling or puffiness from a hard nights sleep. The trick with QuickStart, to get the absolute full benefit is to breathe properly in the shower and take in the full benefit of minty zesty essential oils. With some impressive ingredients on the list, these include:

Amazing Ingredients

Coconut derived cleansers natural gentle cleansers give a low lather deep cleanse without stripping skin of vital oils.

Spearmint Oil tones and soothes skin with naturally powerful antioxidants, stimulating circulation

Witch Hazel Extract Natural antibacterial skin pH balancer to protect skin with strong antioxidant benefits

V-Tonic Mega-uplifting blend including oils of Spearmint Leaf, Citrus Lemon Peel, Cypress Leaf, Menthol and Lavender that will help improve circulation and energy levels

Organic Lemon Extract Zesty natural skin brightener, helps stimulate new skin regeneration.

Organic Grapefruit Extract Packed with flavonoids and antioxidant Vitamin C to fight free radical damage and protect collagen that gives skin bounce.

Caffeine derived from Guarana, the ultimate natural stimulant to pep you up for a great day ahead.

Mio knows that its no coincidence that some of the best ideas that come to mind happen in the bathroom. There is actually scientific evidence which explains why. Creativity is a side effect of an infused dopamine chemical – this can happen when we are in the bath and shower… while doing so it relaxes our bodies which in turn relaxes our minds.

As with all Mio products, they are proud to contain NO NASTIES. QuickStart is free from parabens, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance and colourants, xenoestrogens, PEGs, phthalates & glycols.

The shower gel is 200ml and retails from Poise Brands at selected salons, spas and retail outlets for R415.00 – be sure to get your paws on some to start 2015 with a bang!

Satiskin Event – Fragrances that ignite the senses

Hello Poutlings!

Lady Hellfire and I were recently invited to a press day at the Mane Fragrance House to attend a press day for Satiskin who introduced us to their new products to be launched for the festive season.

When selecting a fragrance for Satiskin’s range of bath time and hand wash products, the brand chose an international fragrance house that understood the importance of smell to women. The globally acclaimed Mane fragrance house established in 1871 is the creator of numerous Satiskin fragrances, and as sensations enthusiasts they are one of Satiskin’s chosen fragrance partners.

We were given an overview of how fragrances are created and how the elements all work together to create that perfect fragrance.

“Whether we enhance people’s daily experiences or create timeless fragrances, we capture what moves,” says MANE Director of Fragrances for South Africa, Olivier Cebe.  “At MANE, we create emotions by embodying our inspiration into our creations through innovation and technology.”  MANE perfumers based at creative centres around the world are able to select the best raw materials, the finest and most unique specialty ingredients and combine these with biotechnologies and synthetic molecules to create MANE’s next generation of fragrances.

Afterwards we were given a quick tour of the facilities by Oliver Cebe – MANE Director of Fragrances.

Karen says that another important element when choosing a fragrance is to understand that people have different preferences.  Our sense of smell creates strong emotions and passion.  Satiskin together with acclaimed fragrance houses identify fragrant trends based on the latest combinations, popular ingredients and creativity.  “Satiskin understands what women want from their bath time experience and the very important role that fragrance plays in their indulgence.”

All in all it was a very informative day and the fact that we met the only female perfumist, Fabienne Bourhis, in South Africa, made it an even more special day.

We are very thankful for the information sharing sessions. We look forward to reviewing some of the products we received in due time.

Have a pouty perfect day!
