Competition: Recharge with your life with McNab’s and giveaway!

This competition is closed. Congratulations to Bee (@b_balutto)


I must confess I am a coffeeholic I just love the taste and the energy it gives me however with caffeine from energy drinks or coffee comes the mid afternoon crash when the energy leaves your system. Life is busy and we tend to neglect our bodies. Well I have an answer for you and a chance to win yourself a hamper too. McNab’s is basically a brand who’s products recharge and rejuvenate with natural products packed with multivitamins, minerals and nutrients. Mcnab’s is all natural and contains no artificial colorants, flavours or sweetness (sometimes referred to as “nasties” and is made that finest natural African ingredients.
I was given some products from their range to test out and here are my thoughts:
Mcnab’s SuperCharge energy tabs
Probably the most popular product I’ve seen this floating around for quite a while now and if I am not mistaken this was the first product that came from the brand. This is caffeine free and contains Siberian ginseng, gingko biloba, folic acid and omega oils which is great for combatting stress and tiredness giving you all day energy. Basically it is a combination of multivitamins. I don’t believe in vitamins as good nutrition will automatically derive those specific vitamins but the right combination of vitamins which has been researched and packaged together can really make a difference.
• McNab’s SuperCharge hi energy bar
This is my favourite out of the range. It tastes delicious like peanut butter and chocolate! It contains roasted peanuts and whey protein and is dipped in Belgian chocolate. Such a convenient snack and is pretty filling too.
• McNab’s SuperCharge liquid energy
These are 15ml sachet that contain natural plant derived caffeine found in gaurana, green coffee bean extract and green tea. Very affordable at R4,95 and nice and handy to keep in your purse. However I didn’t like the taste it tasted super sweet with a hint of bitterness.
Now for the fun part McNab’s have kindly sponsored(Thanks McNab’s!) a hamper for one lucky reader to enjoy. Competition only open to persons residing in South Africa and closes 25 December 2015.

April rubybox

This month I will be showing you 2 variants of the April box. This month they arrived nice and early and saw the release of yet another exciting rubybox beauty product exclusive. So let’s get down to content.





1.Ordinary Moisturising Balm-9ml (R329.00-50ml)
Produced with just five ingredients to give a lasting moisturizing effect even for the driest most hypersensitive skin. Safe for use in eczema and psoriasis. Without fragrance, mineral or essential oils, Plain Ordinary Moisturising Balm is fit for the most difficult task. It can be applied anywhere on the body from head to toe. It is safe enough to use on a baby, and to soothe irritated and inflamed skin. Try it as a lip balm, or a make up primer.Natural balm beads may form; they dissolve into the skin as soon as it is applied, gently relieving dryness, without being greasy.Vegetable wax, olive wax, grape seed oil and beeswax.There are essential oils, no preservatives, no petrolatum derived products, no SLES products, and no frangrance. Which makes it safe to use in eczema, psoriasis and other related skin conditions.A little goes a long way. Use a small amount and massage gently into the skin. The balm sinks in and leaves a long lasting silky feel.Try it on your lips, as a make up primer, on cracked heels and elbows, baby bottoms, after shave rashes, when exposed to the elements, skiing, surf and sand, sunburn, wind chapping, or as a all round must have moisturiser. This was very impressive as a great multi tasker and made from all natural ingredients. I enjoyed using this as a face moisturiser and lip balm.


2.Yves Rocher Active Sensitive Derma-Soothing Cleansing Milk-50ml

The ultimate in gentle cleansing. Its super mild, milky-lotion texture eliminates all traces of make-up and impurities, while respecting your skin’s natural protective moisture barrier. In one simple step, your sensitive skin and eye area are perfectly cleansed, without any itching or tightness. Instantly, your skin feels soothed and comfortably fresh.The plus: a fragrance developed to minimise risk of allergy. Very nice gentle cleanser.


3.Hydrating Micellar Water Face & Eyes-50ml

Eliminates impurities and makeup as it tones the skin.A light and fresh water specially developped for normal to combination skins that eliminates impurities and makeup in a simple step without drying skin.Result: face and eyes are free from makeup and skin is luminous and moisturized.The Plus: two benefits in a single product.Tested under dermatological and opthalmological supervision.No paraben, no mineral oil, no coloring, no silicon. This could easily replace my bioderma sensibio H20 makeup remover. This is so gentle and doesn’t dry out the skin as it does not contain any alcohol.


4. rubybox Beauty Nailed It! (R74.95)

Long lasting, chip resistant colour. Creates a flawless finish with the unique, precision brush for professional results, more shine and nourishing care.I received “Lacquer in Siren” A sheer nail lacquer in a bold red shade and “By The Seaside” A shimmery nail lacquer in a glittery sea blue shade.


5. Salvatore Ferrgamo incanto bloom

This is an amazing fruity floral that smells exactly the same as my favourite fragrance Issey miyake l’eau d’issey florale. So I was very pleased to receive this.
