Making Heliocare-while the Sun shines!

Let’s face it, our beautiful weather comes with many advantages- lunches al fresco, pool parties and loving the outdoors in any which way. However, the disadvantage is the awful lot of UVA/UVB rays to which we are exposed- rays that cause untold damage to our skins in…

Bloom & Bliss- celebrating Nature in skincare

As far as skincare goes, I do love active ingredients, which may or may not be natural, depending on the brand, but this month I decided to go the au naturel way, as i came across a local manufacturer of 100% natural skin and hair care products. In fact, I was gifted their charcoal face soap by a friend…

Prime Time! Time Flash Express Smoothing Primer- Filorga

I love my skincare ritual, it’s my “me” time, but I have to admit that primer is a step I usually skip out, as once I have moisturized my skin, my makeup is very quick and easy (less is more!) and I’m usually out the door in about 5 minutes. I’m also fortunate that I don’t have many skin issues, such as…

It's a Hat Trick! Neostrata's Tri- Therapy Lifting Serum

Ok, so you know that  I rave about this brand, because quite simply, science is behind it. Their founders, Dr. Eugene van Scott and Dr. Ruey Yu, pioneered the discovery of active ingredients that have advanced the science of dermatology. Only when results are proven through rigorous studies, do they launch a new product, like this particular serum.…

Autumn Saviours

The change of season always plays havoc with various things- as the leaves fall abundantly everywhere, so your hair seems to want to mimic this plan of nature and you find that copious amounts of hair are alarmingly leaving your head. I usually try to put a stop to this arrangement by jumping in with immediate preventative measures- and these are old favourites- I bought these products myself, they are not sponsored at all.*…

Cancer- A Love Story- Book Review

I love reading- I literally devour books and almost have a panic attack when I’m nearing the end of the current one I’m reading and haven’t got a back-up. This particular book, written by local author Lauren Segal, was not one I was keen on. I hesitated because of the subject matter- I was afraid of being…
