I have finally finished my 4 week Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment and my skin feels ridiculously amazing. Its a brand new treatment kit that is basically an at home peel kit that has 4 stages. I have always been terrified of peels and have dabbled in a couple non invasive treatments over the last couple years. This treatment gets the same results without any harsh treatment to the skin. You just apply every night and voila gorgeous glowing skin. Each week each treatment deals with different skin concerns and its gentle with no discomfort. My skin just looked and felt better each week.
Elizabeth Arden collaborate with the Sparrow Society once again an amazing initiative for women in South Africa. It was such a great success the last 2 years its back again for 2019. The initiative already started back in Jan and I got the latest goodie bag from Elizabeth Arden. So of course I am spreading the word and some girl power. The Elizabeth Arden bags are basically manufatcured by the Society which helps sustain local manufacturing. The initiative also helps revive lost jobs and helps empower seamstresses to start their own local businesses. So ladies get busy shopping at Elizabeth Arden so while you are looking pretty you are really helping others at the same time.
For every Elizabeth Arden purchase you get this handmade bag thats filled with seven samples. In order to get this goodie bag you need to buy 2 products of which one needs to be a moisturiser, serum or a foundation. The bag contains mostly skincare and a mini Standing Ovation mascara. So not only do you walk away with a makeup bag you get some great samples too.
So what’s in the bag?
Of course you get the cult beauty product loved by so many the Elizabeth Arden 8HR Cream Skin Protectant. Its got so many uses fro protecting your lips, glossing your cheek bones and eyes, protecting split ends its a pretty long list.
The mini Cermamide Lift and Firm Day cream SPF 30 is an anti ageing super moisturiser that lifts and plumps the skin. Yes please. Plus you get a few of the Ceramide Advanced Daily Youth Capsules these are a fav of mine. They are serum capsules that have triple anti ageing powerthat infuses skin with youth-restoring ceramides and potent botanicals for a visibly smoother, firmer and youthful appearance. I have tested these out and they are truly gorgeous.
The bag also contains two products from the Superstart range which I also love. The Probiotic Cleanser Whipped to Clay is actually the biggest sample in the bag so you are winning here. Its a whipped mousse mineral rich cleanser that minimises pores and removes makeup and impurities. Plus there is super a mini version of the Superstart Skin Renewal Booster which I also love. helps restore the healthy look of skin’s surface layer, fortifying its natural ability to repair and renew. Used before a serum or moisturizer, it boosts the results of your skincare products.
Last up one of my fav mascara’s the mini version of the Standing Ovation. Its soft formula nourishes the lashes and also gives great volume to lashes.
So when does the offer start on this goodie bag?
From 14th April – 5th May 2019 at selected Edgars stores
From 19th April – 6th May at elected Woolworths stores
Its a great initiative helping others and its a great way to test out some of Elizabeth Arden products.
I literally have been posting new products every week from Elizabeth Arden because they are seriously on a roll with their skincare. This week I am chatting about the gorgeous Elizabeth Arden Superstart Probiotic Cleanser Whip to Clay. My favourite part of my morning and evening is cleansing especially with this bad boy. Its an absolute winner leaving my skin feeling ridiculously amazing.
The probiotic cleanser (R430) has been added to their Superstart range formulated to harness ther power of probiotics to cleanse and fortify the skin. Sometimes a cleanser can make my skin feel like it needs some extra hydration but not with this one. Its a whipped mousse cleanser that turns to clay when massaged all over the face. The Superstart Cleanser turns into a soft lather when in contact with water.
- Removes dirt, impurities and makeup without stripping or drying.
- Supports the skin hydration.
- Leaves skin feeling super soft and ready for the rest of your skincare routine.
- Probiotic Complex supports skin’s natural defences by adding good bacteria to the skin.
- Glycerin to help retain moisture.
The best way to use massage it in and leave for a minute so it turns to clay and then wash off with water. The cleaner has a pink and grey clay from the French Volcanic Earth. This double combo is what maintains the balance of the skin. The green clay unclogs pores and the pink boosts radiance and nourishes the skin.
Good Bacteria is so important for our skin and with some cleansers the bacteria can be stripped from the skin. I love using it in the morning as my skin just feels amazing for the rest of ther day. Its the first thing I reach for when I step into the shower. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
If you haven’t checked out the Superstart range then you are definitely missing out. I have so far tried the the Skin Renewal Booster and I love it waiting to try the masque that has had rave reviews.
Its gift time again with Elizabeth Arden when you purchase two products that are either a moisturiser, foundation or serum. You get this gorgeous pouch with skincare goodies to take home which is a pretty good incentive if you ask me. Yet again the brand has come together with the Sparrow Society to make the pouches. If you want to learn more and do a little shopping then click here.The Society creates opportunities to train the disadvantaged giving them skills to create amazing products.
So what do you get in the bag?
My favourite in mini versions the Advanced Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum for the face and one for the eyes. Plus a mini Superstart Skin Renewal Booster.
A mini Plush Up Gelato Lipstick in Strawberry Sorbet its a sheer lippie that is super hydrating and refreshing too.
As well as travel size 50ml Anti-Ageing treatment booster cleanser. I haven’t tried this one yet but super sxcited as am a massive fan of the prevage range.
The gifting started already this month and they are staggering over the next few months in different stores:
15 Jan to 4 Feb at Foschini
12 Feb to 4 March at Truworths
15 April to 6 May at Edgars and Red Square
Definitely a great extra if you looking to get new products adding extra value to your purchase. I love Elizabeth Arden skincare and makeup so really worth checking out.
This cute makeup bag plus 3 gorgous goodies from Elizabeth Arden landed on my desk last week. At first I thought it was a delayed Christmas gift but then I soon found out it was an Elizabeth Arden/Sparrow Society Collaboration. Once you have read this post you are definitely going to be hitting the stores to get busy shopping. I am a massive fan of the brand but I am even more so now. Why I hear you say? Because Elizabeth Arden have partnered with one of their Make A Visible Difference partners the Sparrow Society. The non profit organisation empowers women from certain townships to be creative through design.
I always love when any new makeup lands on my desk especially when its a new mascara because as those of you who regularly read my blog this is one item I can’t live without. Elizabeth Ardens latest Grand Entrance Mascara gets a big thumbs up from me and will definitely be going in my personal stash. The Flawless Start Instant Perfecting primer will be heading our way in March. So for those of you who struggle with oily skin and hate that your foundation doesn’t last the distance this primer may be the one for you.
