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.

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
