Let’s get selfie confident with POND’S

Clear, fresh and radiant – 3 words that accurately describe the skin goals of most probably, every woman out there. And the great news is, that POND’S has formulated a product to help you achieve just that!

The new POND’S complete solution spot clear even tone facial foam has been specifically developed for teens with acne/spot-prone skin. As cleansers play a vital role in keeping your skin fresh and renewed, POND’S thought it’d be a great idea to formulate a cleanser that aids in keeping skin healthy and clear by washing away dirt, oil and spot causing bacteria. And they sent me a few tubes to try out for myself!

This multi-action facial foam and scrub is aimed at fighting 10 oil and spot related problems from deep within the epidermal layer. It was designed to help control oil, clear pimples, reduce blemishes and redness, calm the skin, remove blackheads and whiteheads, tighten pores and smooth and brighten skin.

It contains 4 powerful ingredients – salicylic acid, herbal clay, scrub beads and brightening essence – which will encourage skin to be at it’s freshest and clearest at all times.

I’ve only started using the POND’S complete solution spot clear even tone facial foam on my nose to remove blackheads and my skin has taken well to it. My skin is quite sensitive therefore I usually breakout if a product doesn’t agree with my skin. However, since I’ve been using this product, which has only been a for few days, I haven’t had a negative reaction. In terms of getting rid of the blackheads, I’m closely monitoring any new appearance or removals of blackheads and will be sure to update you as soon as I have something to report on.
I’ve also distributed a few of these to teens that are suffering with spots and dull skin – and will defo compile another post documenting their results and thoughts on this product.

In the mean time, if you’re eager to try out this product, I highly recommend you do. Firstly, because I’ve used it and didn’t breakout so it’s safe to use. Secondly, you can get a 15ml tube for just R6.99 – yeah guys, just R6.99 so it ain’t going to break the bank. And if you’re totally convinced and slightly obsessed with this product after reading this, you can get the 50ml which retails for R32.99 or get the 100ml for just R49.99.

If you decide that you’d rather spend your R6.99 on this product than on a chocolate flavored Super M – then I’ve got even better news for you! POND’S is currently running a comp where you stand a chance of seeing your selfie on a billboard. All you’ve got to do is:
Use POND’S complete solution spot clear even tone facial foam.
Take a selfie.
Share your picture on Twitter/IG/POND’S Facebook Page with #PONDSNOFILTER OR
Upload it to http://www.PONDSselfie.co.za

And it’s as simple as that!

All the best with your skin and the competition! Here’s to being more selfie confident 💁

Win: An Abaya and Pin-free Scarf from Jilbaab

{This giveaway has ended}

Choosing the winner for this giveaway was extremely difficult for both Humayra and myself. So many of you guys entered (Shukran for that!) but unfortunately there is only one prize to  giveaway! We were initially going to choose the winner based on the best comment, unfortunately this task was impossible, as all you guys made such great cases on why you deserve to win! Seeing as all of you guys were deserving of the prize, H and I decided to randomly choose a name out of a hat in order to give everyone an equal chance. I know every one of you who entered the competition believes that your comment was the best and that you deserved to win, but please do not be disappointed or upset with Humayra or me – there are many more giveaways to come and Insha’Allah, every one of you will win something on my blog! Ameen!mid jul 017As Salaamualaikum Lovelies,

I’ve got great news for you! Being the blessed month of Ramadaan, Jilbaab in conjunction with GITGH, is giving you guys an opportunity to win a stunning Abaya and Pin-free Scarf for Eid!!

Comment below with your height (so we can send you an abaya in your correct size) and a few lines on why you should be the one to win this awesome prize!

The giveaway will end on the 18th of July and the prize will be sent off to the winner on the 19th of July, Insha’Allah! We sincerely hope that the prize reaches you before Eid but unfortunately, as the delivery method of choice is ‘Post Office to Post Office’ neither Humayra or myself can guarantee this. So, if you are the lucky winner, make sure you do have a backup Eid outfit in case of any delays on the part of the Post Office!
And oh yes, the colour of the pin-free scarf sent to the winner will be decided upon by Humayra of Jilbaab!
