Glowing with Filorga- the Oxygen-Glow Skincare range

The trend for glowing, dewy skin is definitely on the rise and Filorga is a skincare brand that really is the gift that keeps on giving- their new, more affordable range is all about radiance and achieving super flawless skin.

Although I am a bit past the age date for these products (aimed for 25-45 yr old skin) I still loved using the range…

Men in Tutus- on stage at The Teatro, Montecasino

Seriously, life is stressful at the moment with load shedding, power outages and bad traffic jams, so we  really need a lighter side to life- and I'm suggesting you head off to the theatre next month to enjoy Les Ballets Eloelle (say that out loud for your first laugh). Hot from new York, these boys are led by founder, Artistic Director and lead dancer Victor…

Filorga Time-Filler Night:enhancing your Beauty Sleep

 

One of the most effective ways to enhance beautiful skin is a good night's sleep- restoration and repair happen at night, but what if you were to boost this night time action with active ingredients designed specifically to penetrate deeply and to treat sleep lines and puffy features? The result is smooth, firm, plumped out skin.

Filorga has…

Harnessing Healing with Buddha Teas

I was starting to feel quite rattled last week with the flurry of end of year functions and endless to-do lists when I received two beautifully packaged Buddha teas to try- the first, a Chakra tea and the second a CBD tea (the natural constituent of the cannabis plant).

These Buddha teas are now available here and they offer a selection of teas…

Masking to Reveal Radiant Skin- Filorga

Sleep is such an essential part of health and well-being- there is no doubt about it. Getting your "beauty sleep" is not a myth- whenever you have a really good 7-8 hour sleep, your skin usually looks its best, as sleep is necessary for cellular regeneration and restoration. When you don't get enough, you often don't look too good.

Thankfully, I sleep…

#Every30Days

Even though Breast Cancer Awareness month is over, perhaps we should reflect on how the disease impacts South African men and women every single day- 1 in 27 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, while male breast cancer accounts for 1% of all breast cancer cases – so it is applicable to me and you. 

Roche is taking steps to fight the…

Younger- or Healthier?

Since medieval times, the quest for the Holy Grail – the vessel that held miraculous powers providing happiness, eternal youth or sustenance in infinite abundance- inspired many stories in literature. Today, the quest for youth, anti-ageing and keeping young is just as great, but like the Holy Grail, it is unattainable, realistically. Perhaps, if we…

When time is of the essence and you need to do groceries, pick up the dog food, get your preferred multivitamins from the pharmacy and face the dreaded queues before rushing back to work, perhaps you need a Plan B: a one-stop shopping experience, selecting goods from different stores, your supplies collected in one cart and promptly delivered to your door.…

Exuviance Facial- Spring into Summer!

I know that many people who are into skincare prefer to save their cash for a good product range, or budget wisely for the more active treatments that give them real results, for example a chemical peel, a mesotherapy or a microdermabrasion . But even if there is gratification with these valuable procedures that have you investing in your skin, I was thinking that perhaps the…

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 the form of pigmentation, photoageing and ultimately skin cancer. And when your moisturizer…

It had to happen- at last, an anti-ageing, multi-correctional foundation with powerful, active ingredients that will help to boost skin quality while providing a beautiful coverage.

I have been testing the new Flash- Nude Fluid (in Nude Beige) for just over a week, in different ways, with different sunscreens/primers under it and I love it. Many well-known brands have…

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 six months ago and then I recently received a beautiful…

Stanley Beer Yard reboots- Calexico is born!

The beloved and iconic Stanley Beer Yard from 44 Stanley, Milpark, has undergone a major makeover- a fusion of Americana in terms of  the décor, the food and music; there's edge, there's vibe, it's a blend of what Joburgers like to do- listen to music, talk, eat, drink- and the space is perfect- split level, with a choice of being inside or…

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 acne scars ot texture that could possibly benefit from a thin layer of…
