10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS – 2. VitaMan Skincare

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

My second TOP 10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA for 2011 is a special one for the men or man in your life. VitaMan Skincare.

With a range that has won countless awards around the world, VitaMan products are really the only option for taking care of our largest, and very important organ – our skin.

I’ve been using VitaMan products for a good 8 or 9 years now, and really can’t recommend any other brand that suits my skin so perfectly, in every way possible. From shaving, to post shaving care, all the way through to moisturing and hair care, VitaMan products are what have kept my face and body looking and feeling so amazing for so long. Now I know this sounds like an advertisement, but it most certainly is not and the honest truth is that I haven’t yet found a complete skin care range by a brand as great as VitaMan.

All the products are 100% natural, using only high quality ingredients, all Australian made and VitaMan was the first Australian Company to source and introduce new unknown and unique Native Plant/Herb and Fruit extracts into Skin & Hair products. These had previously only been used within the food industry as herbs and spices. The chosen extracts all had a history of use by Australia’s Indigenous people dating as far back as 30,000 years.

VitaMan also have a 100% money back guarantee, they are so confident their products are the best, that they will give you a full refund with the return of your unused portion – no questions asked! But I’ve never had to do this because they are the best!

Now you could be thinking, “I’ve never heard of VitaMan”, but infact, VitaMan is a highly respected brand, used by many A-list celebrities, high end hotels and the world’s top spas. It is even stocked in most high-end luxury department stores in 30 countries including Galeries Lafayette in Paris. VitaMan is constantly wining awards too, this year winning 2 major Spa Awards in Hong Kong in the Asia Spa Magazine‘s Annual Spa Awards. They also won “Best Men’s Spa Treatment” and “Best Men’s Skincare Line”  beating the world top 10 men’s brands.

As a little Christmas gift, I have approached VitaMan and they are offering a 20% discount off all VitaMan products. All you need to do is order by calling 02 9725-6994, and mention ‘ADRIAN’ for the discount, along with your order. Be quick – this offer is available from 15th-23rd of December 2011.

Organic Beauty. Botanical Alchemy. Australian Made, Owned & Grown

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Every week, I get to try new products. Huge European brands, Asian brands and home grown brands right here in Australia.

Not often do products come my way that are quite like the products Grown create. Organic Beauty. Botanical Alchemy.

These magical Australian made products have really taken my breath away because they actually work, and they work well.

Everyone has different skin, I appreciate that. Everyone’s skin reacts in different ways with different products. But Grown products seem to do something different to my skin, making it feel, smell and look different to many other products I’ve tried.

It’s simple science – naturally grown ingredients.

Normally I would give a rundown of products I test for the site – cars, restaurants, clothes, jewellery etc., but I am not going to do that this time. I think this is one of those things where you need to try it for yourself. When you try, I guarantee you will thank me.

Go to Myer, David Jones, selected pharmacies or a day spa and try it. There’s always testers, so give it a go. Smell it, try it, feel it and appreciate it. This is what Australian made products are all about. Products start from $19.95.

What To Buy The Dog That Has It All…

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

I’m not really a dog person, but they are cute to look at for a little bit and that’s about it. I sometimes babysit my sisters dog Montez, he is a teacup Chihuahua which I do enjoy because he is alot of fun and very charismatic. But when it comes to owning one, no thanks.

When I saw the furniture available for your prized poochies, it made me laugh and I had to share with you. An Australian company which make everything here too, they have found a niche market for people who treat their poochies like their children.

I know a few people who wouldn’t laugh and will probably click the link below and purchase a leopard, cow print dog chaise for around $320.

They remind me of something that Rose Porteous would have had in her old Perth mansion, or something that Jeanne Little would have at home. Geez it makes me laugh!

Anyway, if it’s up your alley… check out the rest of the range, it’s actually quite cute.

(I’ve also thrown in a photo of Montez the sweetest little puppy in the world!)
