LAYERED SCENT

The idea of layering your scent is not a new one, and we especially recommend it for summer, as scent seems to evaporate more quickly during this season. Scent layering usually starts with a body cleanser or soap, followed by a cream or lotion, and topped up with a perfume or cologne — making the fragrance linger on the skin for a much longer period than if you were wearing only the perfume. Chanel Chance is a popular fragrance that has been around for  a while, and is recognised for its floral zest. We are thrilled that this modern,
iconic fragrance has now introduced a shower gel and body moisturiser —  a perfect gift for those people who already claim the fragrance as their
signature scent.


SKIN HYDRATOR AND BEARD CONDITIONER

Clinique's male skincare range is one of the most trusted men’s grooming ranges globally. The latest addition to that range is the 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator  & Beard Conditioner, which grooms facial hair while treating and hydrating the skin underneath. Because many men don’t really apply lotion to the skin under their scruff, this area tends to suffer a lot with dryness, flakiness, bumps, and other irritations. This product is a fast-absorbing, light-weight moisturiser, and will soften the facial hair, as well as the skin beneath, without any additional shine.


A TREAT FOR GARDENERS

When Crabtree & Evelyn was founded, it sold only soap. Since then, the brand has expanded its product offering so much more, and has become the go-to gift shop for just about any occasion. Its most recent collection is a charmer:
a range of soaps inspired by gardens and those who love them for nourishing
and treating their hands, leaving them soft and smooth. With scents such as carrot, tomato, lettuce, and cucumber — which happen to be surprisingly accurate and pleasantly crisp and fresh — you don’t have to be a gardener to get some joy out of these.

MATT MOISTURISER

Estée Lauder has gone the extra mile in delivering a product that specifically had the South African woman in mind. Many of us know about the greasy T-zone area that hits you at about midday, leaving a film of oil around your nose and forehead. The Daywear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Cream provides intense hydration, while transforming the skin with a silky, matte finish. This moisturiser is oil-free, oil-controlling, and oil-absorbing, and will reduce the appearance of pores with continued use. It contains a super antioxidant complex that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage that can be responsible for premature ageing. Apply morning and evening on oily skin.

NEEDLE-FREE  MESOTHERAPY

Mesotherapy is a treatment designed to stimulate the  mesoderm. It was developed in France in the 1950s, and involves injecting naturopathic solutions into the middle layer of the skin to stimulate rejuvenation. Many people have opted to stay away from mesotherapy because of the pain and discomfort factor. However, technology has now given us needle-free mesotherapy, which is a revolutionary new aesthetic treatment that requires no downtime. Placecol Skincare Clinics offers this new treatment where, instead of a needle, a syringe nozzle dispenses the solution at very high pressure to ensure penetration into the skin.

MesoLift, R1 500, addresses fine lines and wrinkles; MesoGlow, R650, deals with tightening and rejuvenating the skin; MesoEventone, R950, sorts out pigmentation; and MesoRestore, R950, will restore your dead hair follicles.
