Body bests I bet you didn’t think of…
May 23, 2016
Apart from always featuring the expected body products in the form of scrubs, lotions and creams I decided to dig around a little to come up with a few new things body wise…things you don’t normally consider. These four items have slotted into my beauty cupboard comfortably thank you very much and although you might not use all them all the time, it’s always useful to know about them.
TWEEZERMAN FACIAL HAIR REMOVER – This made me think of a funny story. Beauty bestie Candice-Lee from In My Bag and myself were attending a Kirsten Goss launch last winter and before the time were enjoying a cup of coffee outside in the weak winter sun when Candice reached out and removed a loose hair from my chin. Well, she thought it was loose. The friggin thing was still attached to my face and as she yanked I screamed! Firstly we nearly killed ourselves laughing that I had a long blonde hair growing out of my chin which no-one ever saw and secondly because since that moment I started asking her to check the hair on my chinny-chin-chin which of course always results in hysterical giggles. Damn that never gets old, I can’t tell the story without laughing hysterically. Right. Back to the point. This little tool from the best tweezer brand on the planet is super handy in cases like this. It removes any facial hair, hair on the neck, lip, chinny-chin-chin (I had to) and cheeks effortlessly and without any pain. It minimizes regrowth and as far as I can tell also in-growns. The spring-like tool with it’s rotating handles is easy to use, just follow the directions on the pack. What’s really neat is that you get a smaller size slanted Tweezerman tweezer included when you buy the Facial Hair Remover for R369 from Dischem pharmacies!
MITCHUM ADVANCED CONTROL INVISIBLE ROLL-ON – Being a proper gym bunny, this roll-on really rocked my boat. I love the 48 hour protection, Pure Fresh smell and the fact that my sensitive underarm area showed no sign of stickyness, whiteness or irritation. It acts as a anti-perspirant and deodorant in one and the formula contains Oxygen Odour Control Technology which means the fresh smell lasts super long and keeps your underarm area perspirant free. It retails for R29,35 at Clicks and this hard working little product is most definitely my roll-on of choice at the moment.
ENVIRON PHARMA NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT FOR HAIR, SKIN & NAILS – When life gets under your skin it’s time to get additional help. I am a big fan of eating clean and taking vitamins/minerals to supplement our diets to give us the correct boost. Today’s life with environmental factors having a negative effect on skin. The the trend towards a healthy body, mind and soul growing globally it only makes sense to include nutritional supplements from a brand you can trust. This skin beautifying and strengthening supplement from Environ will help hair, nails and skin grow to be strong and healthy. It is safe to use for vegetarians, is preservative free and does not contain any gelatin, preservatives and lactose. Each capsule contains 73% RDA biotin, also known as vitamin B. I take two vitamins daily and along with my omegas, my skin, hair and nails have no other option to be vibrant with vitality!
MANDY’S HAIR REMOVAL CREAM – Still on my everlasting hair removal quest I’m always up for trying something new. I HATE not being smooth. Some hair removal creams smell so strong of chemicals it almost burns my eyes, I can only imagine how it must burn skin. This hair removal cream was sent to me and duh…I opened. I tried. I loved. The formula is infused with rose hip oil to nourish, sooth and moisturize. It smells almost fruity and is refreshing compared to some of it’s competitors. It can be used all over the body and in only 5 minutes your skin is baby bottom silky that lasts twice as long as shaving. The 50ml travel size pack is perfect for holiday touch-ups and I really loved the thoughtfulness of the removal spatula included in the box. It retails for R30,50 from most retailers.
