SKNLogic Renew Footbalm

Renew FootbalmAbout six months ago my paws got hold of a foot balm from SKNLogic and following this, I received another footbalm from SKNLogic in a goodiebag from #BWB. I had not yet used the first footbalm given to me in December last year at an end of year function because I was busy using another. Anyway, roll on winter time 2014 which is peak season for me to do some serious foot/heel TLC before embarking on a whirlwind overseas adventure and I quickly grabbed my stash of SKNLogic foot balms. I have been using it religiously once a day after showering/bathing and if I’ve had a long day in heels a good slap of this wonderful stuff on my feet before bed is just what is needed! In a short and sweet summary – my feet feel fabulous!

I have just started on my second footbalm after cutting the tube open of my first one because I didn’t want to waste any of the amazing moisturising concuction which soothes sore feet (especially after long days of plodding along in heels).

The SKNLogic Renew footbalm contains amazing ingredients like cucumber extract which hydrates while removing dead skin cells, Vitamin E which protects the skin assists with maintaining the skins oil balance, Orange Oil which works as anti-inflammatory and improves the skins elasticity, Shea Butter providing intense hydration, accelerates healing and soothes the skin, Fig Extract which promotes new cell growth and hydrates regulating trans-epidermal loss and not forgetting the sunflower oil, wheat germ oil and steric acid.

The SKNLogic brand is growing on me, even more so when I learnt that the products are manufactured locally in South Africa with packaging and printing being done here too. If they are not an incentive to support local, then I don’t know what is. To find out more and view their other products visit their website, Facebook and Twitter @SKNLOGIC.

 

The Renew Footbalm retails for R85 (75ml) and is available at salons and spas nationwide.

Introducing The Ordinary Skincare Company

A couple of months ago I was invited to the launch of the Ordinary Skincare Company for South African retailers after being an established and excellent brand overseas in the United Kingdom, the fact that the forelady is South African and uses South African ingredients, it only makes sense for the extra ordinary products be available on South African soil. The products being made locally in new facilities in Cape Town to pharmaceutical industry GMP standards.  The mission from Aesthetic Medicine expert and the ever so passionate founder of the Ordinary Skincare Company, Dr. Claire Jamieson knew that issues surrounding sensitive skin and products made to help them were not delivering effective or long term results due to excessive ingredients which cause multiple reactions rather than results. With having personal experiences of her daughter suffering from long term eczema she was driven to find a solution to help and compiled a range using only the most natural ingredients and ensured that these were placed into ordinary crisp white hygienic, recycable packaging.

The plant oils and extracts used in the range are carefully selected in order to deliver effective results. Keeping to the core philosophy of Ordinary Skincare Company,, they use five African botanicals, being:

  • Aloe Ferox
  • Olive Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  •  Shea Butter
  •  Green Rooibos Leaf Extract

All of the above products boast moisturising, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects when applied to the skin. This results in having skin being smooth, supple and healthy.

The range consists of two parts: Plain Ordinary and Extra Ordinary.

Plain Ordinary - Moisturising Balm - R329.00 online

The Plain Ordinary Range includes one product, the Moisturising Balm which is the solution for any dry sensitive skin. This product is on a mission to hydrate and is safe to be used everywhere on the body from head to heel, even for the most sensitive skins.

Clere Radiance

A few weeks ago I was privileged to be invited to the launch of a brand new South African skin care product from an already a well known house brand for their affordable and readily available hand and body cream ranges. Clere have launched another alternative for the South African consumer, when it comes to skincare, Clere Radiance. Rolling out to retailers from 1 October 2013.

The main difference from the various competitors? Each item in the Radiance range boasts a unique attribute, they all have 3 purposes, which offer women softer more beautiful even tone skin. The “secret” ingredient, so to speak is the specially formulated Super Fruit Serum which is an anti-oxidant.  Anti-oxidants prohibit free-radicals which are linked to the source of inflammation and premature ageing. Super Fruit serum also leaves the products with a very light and beautiful smell. Each item in the range can be used individually or in combination with one another which means that if you are unsure about the range – BUY one product and try it, without having to use all products simultaneously. Once you start seeing results, which are easy to see you will want to try more in the range.

Choose your first product by selecting a 3-in-1 step which targets your specific skin problems. The basics of each product are as follows:

Clere Radiance Oil Control Beauty Bar
