The Clicks Beauty Sale continues…

30 Mar

Can you believe the Clicks Beauty Sale is on again? Felt like they had one just the other day…

Of all the goodies on special, I’m most excited about their Schwarzkopf Gliss promo. If you buy any two Gliss shampoos, (R44,95 each), you’ll get a conditioner for FREE. Of all the non-salon shampoos  and conditioners I’ve tried, Gliss Total Repair is definitely the best.

If they discontinue this range, I'll die. It's a veritable protein fiesta...

Another steal? They’ve knocked one hundred bucks off their BaByliss’ iCurl hair straightener and curler. Now you can take it home for just R339,99.

Want pretty flicks in a flash? Come to poppa!

The sale runs until the 17th of April, so next time you find yourself in a mall, head on over and check it out.

Kanebo SENSAI Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair Collagenergy review

30 Mar

This week I’ve been test driving two products from Kanebo’s SENSAI Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair series.

The line was created to help fast-forward your internal body clock to help maximise your skin’s cellular performance in the morning. This because at night, when you’re asleep, your skin’s microcirculation and cellular turnover is at it’s best. (That’s why it’s best to use certain products at night if you want them to work overtime). Alas, after peaking, your cellular turnover rate takes a seriyas dip. This is why when you wake up, your complexion is, er, less than stellar.

Merrily, this is where Kanebo’s new SENSAI Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair Collagenergy, R1950,00, comes in. As it’s formulated with potent natural ingredients like energising Star Fruit Leaf complex, its kinda like a Red Bull for your face. It works by giving sleepy cells a kick start and minimising the time you have to spend in a cellular turnover lurch.

SENSAI CP Wrinkle Repair Collagenegy - a power brekkie for skin.

It also makes use of collagen-promoting ingredients like Moon Peach Leaf extract to help plump up your skin and an SPF of 20.

Having used it during a super busy, extra stressful time period, where I’m not getting as much sleep as I’d like, I can attest that it definitely helped ensure my lifestyle didn’t show up on my face.

I’m also in love with its soft fruity-floral scent, something Kanebo calls ‘Refresh Aroma’. This was created especially for the product to ‘help awaken your skin and spirit’. They even went as far as to include a little graphic that illustrates it’s effect on brain wave activity. (In tests, inhaling Refresh Aroma helped switch peeps to a more ‘positive, alert and refreshed state of mind’. Gotta love them Japanese brands, right?)

Another plus is, as its a feather light fluid that you apply after your day cream, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling or looking greasy.

Aside from using Collagenergy in the morning, I’ve also been using Kanebo SENSAI Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair Cream, R2 100,00, at night.

Want even more collagen? SENSAI CP Wrinkle Repair Cream is your friend.

It contains an array of ingredients that help rev up your collagen production while you sleep and, despite it’s rich, luxurious texture, it hasn’t caused any break outs in my combo-oily skin.

I also love that its got a gorgeous pearlescence to it that actually shows up on your skin, giving it an instant glow. I don’t care if I’m about to turn out the light and nobody’s going to see it… I like hitting the pillow feeling pretty… ;-)

ghd launches new brush collection

30 Mar

If you’re a serious ghd devotee, (i.e. 95% of the female population),  you’re going to want a zexy ghd brush to go with your straighteners, right?

As of next mo (April), ghd will introduce ten professional hair brushes and two combs into their collection. To develop them, they worked with professional stylists and each one has been hand finished and boasts a ‘soft touch, non-slip finish’.

Of the brush bunch, my eye is on the Ceramic Vented Radial brush, R198,00. It’s hollow and round, so you can wrap your hair around it and blast it dry in a flash. It also makes creating fringe flicks super easy.

Check out le fancy ghd branded 'end cap'. Nice touch, guys.

The Oval Dressing Brush, R320,00, also looks rather fab.

It's got natural bristles which are kinder to your hair and massage your scalp.

Ghd’s new brushes are only available via professional ghd-exclusive salons. To check out the entire range and locate a stockist, visit their local website.
