Ready for some beauty news?

A while back the team from Juiced Co sent me some of their juices, soups and smoothies to try. They deliver their beverages frozen, and that’s the way I found them even though I only went to pick up my parcel half a day after it had been dropped off.

juiced coWhile I mostly make my own juice with veggies and fruits I keep in the freezer, it was great to have some ready-made options on hand. My favourites were the soups (they were very hearty and satisfying) and Cocoa Bliss – a delicious blend of nuts, dates, honey, salt and cocoa. I didn’t enjoy the texture of the two ‘smooth’ juices even though the taste was great – that boils down to personal preference though.

You can find the Juiced Co website here if you’d like to stock your freezer with a few nutritious juices and soups for busy days.

I’m very sure I must have mentioned it somewhere before, but I’ve just rediscovered Dove Intensive Repair Daily Conditioner Treatment. It’s a one minute conditioner that comes in a very user friendly tube, and it leaves my hair feeling and smelling amazing regardless of which shampoo I had washed with (I’m currently back on the Coconut Water Shampoo from OGX, FYI. Which says a lot since I’m not a coconut fan – you can read more about it here).

Many months ago I used the L’Oreal Brow Plumper in a first impressions video which you can see here. Back then I wasn’t impressed with it but after giving it another go I’m now hooked and use it just about every time I do my makeup. Turns out it does a great job of disciplining my eyebrows while adding just the right amount of intensity – it’s been my go-to brow setting product for months now.

If you’re serious about anti-ageing on your hands, you should (1) wear SPF on them every single day and (2) get some rejuvenating ingredients on there as early as you can. Filorga Hand Absolute has a potent cocktail of anti ageing ingredients, which is why I decided that I’m keeping it next to my bed to prevent granny hands. We’re talking plant sugars, marine collagen, amino acids and a keratin booster for your nails that showed a 26% increase in growth after 30 days of twice-daily application.

      Ek gaan nie eers maak of ek dit vir die kombuis gekoop het nie, ek dink ek gaan dit net erens laat rondlê sodat dit kan mooi lyk 🙂
