Taking up the POND’S Flawless Radiance 7 Day Challenge: Part 1 of 2

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.

What’s in the box?

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.

Pretty, pretty products.
Pretty, pretty products.

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.

I will use these eventually when I'm not so bloody lazy/busy. Promise.

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!

Please gnore my current house guest's terrifying lime suitcase.

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.

Despite sporting a name that would make a sub editor want to stab themselves in the eye, it does a nice job of easing tired. sore muscles.

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.

Totally worth the migraine.
Yum! I’m saving this to make a wicked chocolate chilli steak sauce.

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.

Love, love

  1. Dear Leigh,

    Your Ponds challenge sounds like a lot of fun. We are glad you were able to DESTRESS with your Aroma Soothz neckz comforter.

    1. Thank you, it’s lovely! I’ve been using it as a ‘hot water bottle’ in the evenings, shoving it into the depths of my duvet and slipping my feet under it. Heaven!
