Goodbye pores


Fans of the Olay Total Effects range will be happy to hear that the whole range has got a major upgrade with now 40% more vitamins and optimised levels of Niacinamid (Vitamin B3) in the products. New on the block is also their Total Effects Pore Perfector which blends all the things you loved about the regular daily moisturiser but with added pore minimising properties.

Pores for me are starting to become a real problem, and apparently it’s something that happens with age (eeeek!). Yes pores often become larger and more visible with age and yucky pores just ain’t a good look at all.

So I was excited to try out the new Pore Perfector, especially on my nose and forehead area. It feels creamy and dreamy, yet a little goes a long way. It disappears into the skin in a flash and is a fantastic base for you foundation, indeed you wouldn’t need a primer on top of this unless you were heading somewhere very swish.

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream Banner

Popular beauty brand Fresh has launched the latest in a line of anti-aging skincare, the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream.

The daily moisturizer will improve the skin’s radiance, clarity and elasticity, as well as providing 24 hours of moisture. This is due to a Super 7 Complex used in the cream, which was developed in LVMH’s research labs, proven to maximise hydration, boost radiance and also contains the benefits of lotus flower extract, blue-green algae, hibiscus fruit extract, fig fruit extract, Vitamins C and E and vegetable glycerol.


The ingredients contain powerful antioxidants, and are rich in amino acids (to help preserve collagen, elastin and vitamin B to enhance microcirculation), minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, carotin, and Vitamins B1,B2 and C, which help promote the production of hyaluronic acid. Sugars and pectin from the fig fruit extract preserve moisture levels, while Vitamin C and E aids collagen synthesis and helps soften the skin. Finally, vegetable glycerol attracts water and seals moisture, highlighting that the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream provides the optimum conditions for skin to lock in moisture and maximise hydration. The formula is enriched with maca root extract, which enhances luminosity and cell turnover.

The lotus is a powerful symbol in Asia, having been around for more than 3,000 years and having many applications and properties. It is used to make oils and perfumes; parts of it are edible, while other parts are used to make herbal medicine. It also represents healing, enlightenment, divinity, paradise, and the universe. Fresh used the lotus not only as a symbol of purification, but also due to their numerous benefits, according to Lev Glazman, Fresh co-founder and director of Research and Development: “After doing clinical tests, we were stunned at this ingredient’s high levels of polyphenols, the most powerful antioxidants known to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals”.


Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream

The light summery gels is what I’ve been turning to lately, but when I need something that’s a bit more heavy duty, I’ve been turning to this cream. It’s heavier than a gel, but it still absorbs into skin super quickly and relieves any dryness. Let it sink in – and it will – and then go ahead with face oils, sunscreen, or foundation. There’s no greasiness or pilling (or you used much too much), but just nice smooth skin that doesn’t have any more dryness. It smells like fresh cut cucumbers which makes it refreshing to use.

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream will be availble in March in a 50 ml jar.





Le Lift by Chanel


Chanel launches a new skincare line, ready to firm things up in the complexion department.

When a French fashion and beauty powerhouse like Maison Chanel introduces a new skincare line, it is of course, a very well thought out process. Typically, years of research go into such products, and by the time they hit beauty counters there can be little doubt when it comes to proven results.

The label’s latest offering is called, simply, ‘Le Lift’. After 12 years of research, Chanel has settled on an extract from the Edulis plant, and in doing so, promises to deliver a formula which will promote elasticity by targeting natural youth proteins in the skin.


There are three formulas available, ‘crème fine’, which is oil free, plain and simple ‘crème’ for normal skin, and ‘crème rich’ for those who suffer from dry spells.

Le Lift by Chanel is available to buy now.

Marcelle Hydra-C Hydrating Gel

Marcelle Hydra-C Hydrating Gel Jar Box

Visiting great places, meeting wonderful people. And looking for ‘new’ products. I love to travel.  …..or to have friends who travel. I hadn’t heard from Marcelle before. so when I got the Marcelle Hydra-C Hydrating Gel from a friend, who took it for me from her trip to Canada, it was a pleasant surprise.

The gel smells pleasantly citrusy and is super light and refreshing on the skin. Usually, that means that the moisturizing qualities of the product are somewhat diminished in favour of quick absorption, but the Hydra-C Hydrating Gel keeps even my ridiculously dry – dehydrated – skin, hydrated all day without greasiness. It absorbs extremely quickly and doesn’t leave skin with that creamy, just hydrated feel so it’s really excellent to wear under makeup.

It doesn’t contain any alcohol to help create that cooling sensation. What it does have is antioxidant green tea, vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as hyalurionic acid to combat dryness and prevent moisture loss. Provitamin B5 also hydrates and relieves itchiness.

Marcelle Hydra-C Hydrating Gel open

An amazing product for the warmer months and even coming into the fall season when the heavier creams that are better for winter chapped skin are still too heavy for everyday use – for many people. You may use it as a Day Cream or Night Cream, or both.

Overall, a fabulous product. It rates high up on my list of great moisturizers and is just as hydrating as the Dior Hydra Life line which is literally three times the price of this amazing drugstore find. Thanx Greg, to introduce this moisturizer to me.
