Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Facial Oil 

Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight Facial Oil is a facial oil that leaves your skin looking and feeling deeply moisturised, replenished and radiant. After just two weeks the  overall look and feel of my skin improved.


 Avon-Nutra Effects-Miracle Glow 1

 I have been looking for a light weight facial oil and was so happy to see that Avon had launched one at a reasonable price. According to Avon the oil will give you a youthful, radiant glow and reduce fine lines. I started using the oil about 3 months ago and the bottle is not empty yet. It’s recommended to use 3 drops which means a little goes a long way. The products suits any skin type including sensitive skin. I was very concerned because I have combination skin with an oil t-zone. The oil is formulated with a blend of seed oils to nourish and smooth the look of skin and should also help to smooth the fine lines and wrinkles. It is also free from parabens and dyes.

Avon Nurtraeffects Miracle Glow facial oil contains:

– Babassu seed oil helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin
– Green Coffee seed oil moisturizes
– Passion Fruit seed oil stimulates elastin production in the skin
– Flaxseed oil strengthens skin’s barrier function
– Marula oil helps to soothe the skin

The oil comes in a clear glass bottle with a dropper cap which makes dispensing the oil a breeze. The oil itself is lightweight and absorbs easily. It spreads easily, leaves little to no residue and leaves the skin feeling smooth, supple and well moisturised. It comes in at 30ml bottle and when you consider how little you use (they recommend 2-3 drops), you are actually getting a lot of product and it should last for up to 3 months. The oil has a mild, pleasant fragrance, I simply love the smell.


Since using the oil I have received many compliments about my skin. It definitely lives up to its promise of an increased glow and reduction of fine lines.  The use dispense two to three drops into the palm of your hand. On cleansed skin, smooth across face, neck and decolletage each morning and evening. Suitable for use under makeup as a primer. This is my best buy from Avon yet and I will continue purchasing it. I have recommended this product to many of my friends and family.

Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow is available online or from a sales representative. It is currently retailing at R199.

Avon ExtraLasting Pressed Powder Translucent

I order makeup from Avon every month and I really like their products. I received my order yesterday and was super excited to use my Avon ExtraLasting Translucent  Pressed Powder. The packaging is really nice…the red compact comes with a mirror inside, as well as a sponge applicator.


If you are looking for a full coverage powder this is definitely not the one to choose.. This is more of a setting powder and it’s totally visible. The catalogue claims that it’s a translucent pressed powder and suitable for all skin tones. I used it over my Garnier BB Cream and it looked like I literally put white powder on my face:-) It made my skin feel dry and tight…not comfortable at all. I have Combination skin type and this never happens so I washed the product off within 5 minutes of applying it.


I have decided to return the product and I will not repurchase it. Unfortunately I have not used it long enough to write a better review but I was afraid of an allergic reaction. I contacted the Avon call centre and the consultant was very friendly and said I could return the product without any hassle!

I am a bit disappointed but I accept that not all products will work for my skin or yours for that matter. So now the hunt for a good Pressed Powder continues:-)

I was recently invited to the MRL Launch Party.

They showcased their collection and had a very informative presentation about how MRL started and where the business is headed. Guests were spoilt with fabulous entertainment and delicious canapés. Best of all were the pamper stations and the Goodie Bags! I  am currently testing the Paco Xercus and WOW…its such an amazingly sexy scent!!! I do have my Signature Scent but I must admit I really enjoy using this one too:-)

Redken Extreme Kit

I have the Full Redken Extreme Hair Care Range but I don’t regularly use all of the products. For many years my hair has been put through the ringer with, constant blow drying and flat ironing and I did not treat or trim it as often as I should have. Earlier in the year I decided to use supermarket hair dye and went a few shades lighter. The box had 2 sachets of pre-lightener and I used both…..needless to say my desired hair colour was not achieved, my hair was Bright Orange!!!!

I looked like a circus act and my hair was beyond dry! I ended up going to a well-known Hair Salon and spent just over one thousand rand to fix my mess. I was happy with the result but now had to focus on the after care and fixing the damage. My hair suffered major breakage at the front, it was extremely damaged, dry and brittle. After one use of the Redken Extreme System my hair was so soft and manageable it felt great. After weekly use I can see and feel a major difference in the texture of my hair but most importantly the broken hair is growing back nicely YaY:-)  I highly recommend this Hair Care Range and have decided to do reviews on all the products I have….so watch this space!!!

Last night I was scrolling through my Facebook Feed and stumbled across the SkinnyMint post. I immediately clicked on it and went to check out the website:-)

Everyone that knows me….is aware that  I have tried so many weight loss products including detox teas and I am still over weight!

I am not looking for a miracle cure however I am looking for a product that will help me with the transition from unhealthy lifestyle to healthy lifestyle. So I need to start with a Detox like SkinnyMint Teetox.

So I have decided to give the 14 Day Starter Teatox a try….YaY combined with healthy eating and some exercise I should be well on my way to a skinnier version of me:-) Priced at $29.90 it does not help that I am in Cape Town, South Africa with the ZA Rand as my currency LOL but my health is worth it!

I will place my order and keep you posted when I start. I’m thinking maybe I should document my journey and share my results. I am feeling hopeful for some reason….so wish me luck xxx
