POND’S sent me a very thoughtful little press pack the other day; a giant box full of Flawless Radiance goodies and assorted gifts. For those not familiar with the Flawless Radiance line, it aims to help brighten up your complexion with the key ingredient bring niacin, a form of vitamin B3 that prevents melanin travelling from the deeper layers of your skin to the surface.
But let’s get back to the box. The pack’s concept revolved around the ‘Flawless Radiance 7 Day challenge’ and contained seven gifts, one for each day of the week, that each came with its own little ‘challenge’. For example, day 1 was all about ‘CARE’, its gift being all the Flawless Radiance products that were tucked inside the box.
I’ve actually chatted about POND’S Flawless Radiance line before over here and shared my thoughts, which haven’t changed, over here. I’ve also chatted in depth about their BB Cream over here. To learn more about the line via the POND’S SA website, get clicky clicky over here. The brand also has a very active local Facebook page.
Day 2’s challenge was to GET FIT and the gift revealed a skipping rope.
Alas, as my apartment’s the size of a hamster cage, I haven’t really used it but thought I’d make a point of using my exercise bike. Oh wait! That was busy being used to dry a bunch of beach towels. Oops!
Guess I had no choice but to lie in bed with a beer and watch people have graphic sex and murder each other in Banshee. Day 3’s challenge, fortunately, was a very easy one; DESTRESS via a chill out session with a lavender-infused microwaveable or freezable Aroma Soothz soothing neckz comforter.
Day 4 was a goodie too. It was all about BEAUTY BOOSTING FOOD and, according to POND’S, cocoa is known to reduce stress which results in less collagen breakdown in your skin. Now that, much like DESTRESS, was something I could do; eat chocolate for the sake of my face.
Anyway, I’ve run out of time today as I have to nip off to a dinner party at my friend Tam’s spot, she of Glow Cape Town spray tan fabulosity, but you can expect a follow up post soon to see how the rest of the POND’S Flawless Radiance challenge rolled out.
