  • This is why I love Paperless Post

Almost everything is virtual nowadays , I check my email more than my post box. Life is too busy and sometimes one can forget to send a birthday card. So this is why I love Paperless Post.

Not only are they  Eco friendly, it is convenient and easy to use. Being a working mom can be to at end of the day, all I want to do is just pass out on top of the  bed. Worry less about birthday invitations and birthday cards.

When Paperless Post approached me to partner with them for their July campaign, had no idea who they were. Quickly went to Google them before agreeing to the partnership and found their variety of products absolutely interesting.

This is why I love Paperless Post

Played around and got creative with their birthday invitations and birthday cards .With my daughter  turning 8 years old next month, timing was perfect for me to be introduced to Paperless Post in July.

Above are some  of the things have created on their site, it was very easy to customize and feel in love with the envelope lining. One more thing please create an app for us Android users.

Feel free to check them out too at Paperless Post.

Have you ever tried Paperless Post and how was the experience?

Herbalife 7 Day Results Kit

Herbalife 7 Day Results Kit

Herbalife South Africa sent me a stunning package for Mother’s Day, it was a Herbalife 7 Day Results Kit. I was excited because of my love of trying new things and to learn something new because I had no idea that Herbalife have a skin range. Anticipated receiving the hamper and could not wait to try the products.

Will be sharing with you, my opinions of how I found the products in the Herbalife & day Results Kit. First, the kits include the following products and they all must be used within 7 days of opening;

  • Mini Soothing Aloe Cleanser 50 ml
  • Mini Daily Glow Moisturiser 15 ml
  • Mini Replenishing Night Cream 15 ml
  • Hydrating Eye Cream 2 x 2 ml
  • Firming Eye Gel 2 x 2 ml

 

Soothing Aloe Cleanser

I found the cleanser very soothing and off course Aloe has soothing properties, the cleanser is clear in colour and cool to the touch, gets soapy and white when rubbing it in  the face. Liked it because it did not dry out my skin after using it.

Score: 8/10

 Daily Glow Moisturiser

Daily moisturiser was disappointing for me because I have combination to dry skin. It really dried my skin out and left my face feeling very tight and uncomfortable. If you have dry skin I don’t think it will be ideal for you.

Score: 0/10

Replenishing Night Cream

My favourite of all, the night cream was amazing, from the moment I applied it on my skin, could feel my skin getting refreshed and moisturised. In the morning, the effect is still there and I was tempted to use it during the day too instead.

Score: 10/10

Hydrating Eye Cream

Really loved how the cream felt on my eyes smooth and moisturiser too. It really improved my eyes appearance.

Score: 7/10

Firming Eye Gel

Firming eye gel was good because when you have dry skin fine lines becomes your friends very early. It improved the appearance of fine line and my eyes love awake and well rested.

Score: 7/10

Overall first impression of the Herbalife 7-day Results Kit was good because in just 5 days my skin had improved, it was soft, smooth and radiant. Despite the shortfall of the Daily Glow Moisturiser, I think the kit produces results as promised and it is worth trying out.

The kit is exclusively available through an independent Distributors of Herbalife, for more information click here

Tell me guys have you used the Herbalife 7 Day Results kit and how was your experience?

MiPad Kiddies from MiMate Review

Mimate Kiddies ReviewI decided to get an educational tablet as her birthday present because she loves my tablet and we are always fighting for it.

So I google educational tablets for children and I got MiPad Kiddies from MiMate and it was budget friendly because I bought this one for R999.00 from Takealot.

This MiPad Kiddies from MiMate Review is to help mommies when they decide to search such a product for their kiddies. There isn’t enough options in the market.

I am happy for the tablet because its keeping her busy during the school holidays. It is also a learning opportunity for her too because I told her she is responsible for it, she has to make sure it  does not crack.

Packaging

I love the packaging its brightness and showcases the different colours they over on their cover which is 4 colours. The quality of the box amazing MiMate has done a fabulous job on the packaging it’s something you will be drawn if it was on an electronic store shelf.

Review: Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme

Vichy serum

A while back, I received the Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme to review from Beauty Bulletin. The serum contains 10 percent of Rhamnose which is a natural sugar proven to fight aging and rejuvenate the skin alongside with fragmented hyaluronic acid. It’s also suitable for sensitive skin and its Paraben free.

Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme promises to instantly improve your facial appearance in just 10 minutes by reducing your wrinkles and fines by tightening and lifting the skin, even tone complexion and lightening the dark circles.

My First Impression of Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme

I love the elegant, expensive lightweight looking packaging (less is More). The bottle was easy to spray and the nozzle working perfectly. The texture feels so soft and its non-greasy and easily absorbed and smells amazing too.
After my first application my skin felt different and the lines under my eyes less visible.

My skin was not irritated or dried out by Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme. I wear it just before my moisturizer sometimes alone because of its own it nourishes my skin. I love the way my skin looks in the morning after a using it at night.

Investing in a good serum is absolutely essential and just a drop its enough because these serums they really don’t come cheap.
Thank you Beauty Bulletin and Vichy for giving me the opportunity to test this amazing product. More on the product visit their website.

Have you ever used the Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme and how did you think about it?

My Skin Health Journey with Nimue

nimue

I began my skin health journey with Nimue about 22 days ago when I received some products to test from Rubybox and it has been an amazing journey and my skin has improved so much that I love what I see in the mirror.

My skin was classification was Interactive Skin according to their skin diagnostic tool. Here is the definition of my skin type according to the Nimue App: An interactive skin classification shows symptoms of hypersensitivity, redness and irritation often due to stressful lifestyle and over treated skin, poor health or over the counter medication which can compromise our skins natural protective barrier. I am often stressed and yep, I am guilty of not eating healthy enough, but I am not a medication fan though.

These are the products were prescribed to me:

Cleansing Gel Lite- this gel balances sebum production without drying the epidermis while removing traces of make-up and impurities.

My Review: this gel takes gentle to the next level; it really feels so good on the skin as well as soothes the skin.

Conditioner Lite- It has antibacterial and anti- inflammatory benefits and it also hydrates and soothes the skin in the process.

My Review: I liked the cooling effect it has on the skin when you apply it, but I struggled with using the nozzle as it was hard to spray it on the cotton wool that I had to remove the cap to use it.

Moisturizer Lite- This moisturizer is on double duty because it works as a day and night cream. Improves the skin texture, hydrates and balances oil production.

My Review: wow, I loved how my t-zone stayed matte

throughout the day without getting oily and it also hydrated the dry part of my skin too. Felt so good on the skin when I applied.

Exfoliating Enzyme- contains papaya and pineapple enzymes, which gently removes dead skin cells while promoting renewal.

My Review: I don’t exfoliate because it leaves my skin feeling dried out, but this product felt like hydrating instead of exfoliating it did not irritate my skin. It is the gentlest Exfoliator I have ever used.

Professional SPF 40: It protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. My Review: I found the product a little thick when applying it, but it evened out on the skin quite beautifully and easily. This is a professional product which means I cannot buy it.

I loved using the products the packaging is clean and elegant. The products were skin friendly and I would use the SPF 40 for beach days because it’s a bit heavy to use on a daily basis.

Nimue

I am yet to book for the treatment at the salon with the voucher that I received that will be in an entire different post.

Have you ever used Nimue Products and what is your take on them?
