Iams for Vitality

Before I had started this new trnd campaign I was quite disappointed by Iams for Vitality cat food. My cat tried Iams before because I had heard so many positive feedbacks, mostly about the health benefits. It happened around two years ago and my cat, Muzu, refused to eat it. (Anyway stray cats were over the moon.) Some weeks ago I saw trnd had started a new Iams campaign. I had read the description and decided to give one more chance to Iams dry cat food. And, YES, this time I was successful and my cat loves her new food.

Even the packaging is different, so I think, the ingredients changed a little as well. I love the new re-sealable zipper, because it keeps the aroma inside the bag and ensures each meal is as fresh as possible. Freshness is really important for the developers of Iams. If you tried Iams like me before, then search the new white packaging and let’s try it. I am very impressed with the list of ingredients: 91% animal proteins, like fresh chicken; light in fat; wheat free; with no fillers, artificial colours, flavours or GMOs. I am not surprised why my cat prefers Iams for Vitality over human food, even if it is battered fish. There are two types of food for my cat, one she loves and other she refuses even to sniff. Look at this photo:

Iams dry cat food comes in four flavours: Fresh Chicken; Lamb; Ocean Fish; Freshly Frozen Salmon. Ocean Fish and Chicken are Muzu’s two favourites.

Supporting my cat’s health and vitality is one of my biggest responsibility. I am so happy Iams does the hard work for me and has the right ingredients. This cat food is perfect for any cat with any personality. Vitamin D and minerals keep the bones strong and healthy for longer time. Omega 3 and 6 is essential for healthy skin and shiny coat. Antioxidants and Vitamin E are perfect immune system supporters. Prebiotics and beet pulp maintains healthy digestion. Iams for Vitality even helps to reduce hairball formulation. Tailored mineral levels and crunchy kibbles keep the teeth strong. Animal proteins maintain strong muscles. At least but not last all these fantastic ingredients help to maintain healthy heart.

Get Ready With Me - Temporary Hair Transformations

L’Oreal Paris La Belle Famille beauty panel always helps me to get my best look. This time they sent me two hair colourants which I can combine to get my best look.
I start my hair care routine with L’Oreal Magic Retouch Instant Grey Concealer Brush and finish with L’Oreal Colorista Hair Makeup Shimmers in copper gold colour.

My grey hair is quite a big problem for me. I have few scattered greys and one bigger patch. I started to dye my hair because my greys but I need something to hide my greys between two hair colouring. I am pleased, I have found L’Oreal Magic Retouch Instant Grey Concealer Brush. It takes me only 5 minutes after each hair washing to get back my young looking hair. 

The colour lasts until shampooed out. This colour does not stains skin, easy to remove with water. The precision brush is very handy, it is rather a mini comb. After catching greys with the mini comb I use my normal comb to distribute the colour evenly. Really quick and easy operation, it is even quicker than applying mascara. Anyway L’Oreal Magic Retouch exactly looks like a mascara. It is easy to carry in handbags or makeup bags. I can have it with me everywhere.

I am a brunette but from time to time I like to have some bold strands without long lasting highlights. I just would like to make a change for one evening. Luckily L’Orealsells hair make-up, which completely fades in one shampoo. This range have been made for brunettes only. Lucky me! This shimmery copper gold colour is beautiful. I apply it in good amount with my fingertips without gloves. It absolutely does not strain the skin – including nail beds. I just wash my hands afterwards. I comb a little while still wet to help spread the colour evenly. This colour has a texture so do not over brush. For the perfect result combine L’Oreal Colorista Hair Makeup Shimmers with hairdos like loose plaits. One more thing! This product has delicious fragrance. 2-in-1 hair makeup and hair scent.

Olay Daily Facials

Super Savvy Me website have chosen me to take part in their Savvy Circle project, where I have had the opportunity to try and review the new 5-in-1 cleanser Olay DailyFacials.

My first question was:
What is the meaning of 5-in-1?
-1. Removes makeup
-2. Cleanses away dirt, oil and impurities
-3. Exfoliates like a gentle scrub – thanks to the material of cloths
-4. Improves skin look
-5. Preserves moisture, leaving skin soft and conditioned

My second question was:
Which one to choose?

I tried the latter one, which worked perfectly but my dry skin type felt a little bit dryer after the application. I think it is a normal feeling by people with dry skin conditions. Nothing special, my everyday night cream always solves this “tense” situation perfectly. Next time I will buy Olay Daily Facials Micellar Clean – Sensitive Skin aloe leaf extract.

As an everyday makeup wearer I was more than happy to try this new product. I have to confess I love to apply and even experiment with my makeup but I totally hate to remove it. It is boring, takes long time and need a lot of experience to do it properly and do not end up with clogged pores.
In my opinion, best and quickest makeup removing products are wet wipes. But it happened to me quite often that I accidentally left the bag open and all my wipes dried out. I tried to make them wet again, but the result was not the same.
Olay designed their new cleansing wipes for people like me. Wipes come in dry condition and I myself activate them with some water. Here comes the perfect step by step guide:
-1. Add water to dry cloth
-2. Wash skin with activated, foamy ingredients
-3. Rinse cloth and wipe skin clean
You will be surprised with the amount of dirt these smart wipes remove from your skin. It is a perfect spa facial experience each evening.

Olay Daily Facials even make my holiday packing easier. I just need one handy box of these 5-in-1 cleansing wipes to be sure I return home with flawless, healthy and maybe sunkissed skin.

It is huge! - Philips Airfryer XXL

Philips Product Tester Panel surprised me with Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XXL to help me to cook more healthy meals from scratch to make my family happy every day. Healthy frying is possible. Quick and healthy homemade fast food for the whole family. So we have more time for exercising and spending quality time together.

Philips Airfryer XXL is my best family kitchen gadget so far. It is huge even a whole chicken can fit in and I can roast a whole chicken without adding any unnecessary oil. I just spray it with 2-3 pumps of rapeseed or olive oil. It is good to use some healthy fats. Philips Airfryer just removes and captures excess fat. It has Twin TurboStar technology, which is absolutely new. There is a new generation of Airfryers.

I am so happy I can cook healthy meals from fresh ingredients and I can save time too. It could be frustrating to cook long hours every day. But Airfryer XXL accelerates the cooking time. I no more need to turn chips one-by-one in the oven when I decide to cook healthy fish and chips. I just pour the frozen chips into my new Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XXL and it turns them into a healthy, crispy and “fish & chips shop like” deliciousness. Who wants to eat unhealthy fast food, when home-made is healthier tastes better and easy to prepare. I can save a fortune on fast food and on takeaways. Philips AirfryerXXL is the best investment. I am so glad I have got it.

Purina Beyond

Our cat is a picky gourmet. She is extremely choosy with her food but she is an enthusiastic about trying out new food. I am in never ending search for new and high quality cat food. Luckily she likes wet and dry cat food equally.

I was happy when I saw, that The Insiders online panel has a new cat food campaign. Purina – a very reliable pet food brand – launched a new dry cat food: Beyond. Luckily my cat, Muzu, was selected and I am sure she is one of the most experienced cats when it goes about cat food.

Muzu has loved Purina Beyond at first sniff. The smell of the cat food is really important. Unfortunately we, humans, cannot judge any cat food based on smell. Even very smelly could be very tasty and vice versa.
She has loved the taste as well. I was not surprised, because fish, especially salmon is one of Muzu’s favourite flavours. She loves also cat food with vegetables and Purina Beyond contains spinach. Double win! Whole barley, oat and rice are another healthy and important ingredients when it goes about daily energy levels. Natural and recognisable food is the healthiest choice for humans and animals too.
As I see she does not have any problem with chewing the pieces properly, so Purina Beyond dry cat food never causes unwanted vomiting. This fact is quite important by indoor cats. Good chewing even keeps her teeth healthy. And I do not want anything more than a healthy and happy cat.

Quick Beauty Fixes

La Belle Famille, L’Oreal’s beauty panel sent me some makeup bag essentials to try. I can confirm these products are a must-have for every women.

The first product is something new, called Lip Spa. It is a sweet, sugary Lip Scrub in stick format. Like a handy lip balm. It smells delicious and tastes sweet. I have chosen the green Melon Breeze one, because it is my favourite summer fruit. Anyway there are even pink Berry Blast and yellow Peach Twist in the range. Lip Scrub can help a lot, when I suffer from flaky lips. Air conditioner and even whitening toothpastes make my lips to peel. I cannot apply lipstick perfectly on my flaky lips so I always exfoliate with Lip Spa first to get beautiful healthy and kissable lips. I use L’Oreal Exfoliating Sugar Scrub to get rid of excess skin and afterward I apply some lip balm to moisturise and smoothen my lips. After this quick procedure my lipstick holds longer and looks professional.

The second product is something timeless, called La Petite Palette. Mini Eyeshadow Palette with five shades in totally perfect harmony. It is very easy to use for everyone. There is even an easy to follow guide on the backside of the handy box. You do not need to be a makeup artist or a regular, experienced makeup wearer to spice up your style with beautiful and sexy eye makeup for a date night or a party. Just grab your brushes and be creative. I have chosen the Fetishist Eyeshadow Palette, because I adore black colour, but there are five more L’Oreal Mini Palettes to choose from: Maximalist, Nudist, Optimist, Stylist, Feminist. Yay, I also love these names so much.

L'Oreal Men Expert

Guest Post:
“I am a loyal member of L’Oreal Men Expert Test Drive panel because I simply love L’Oreal products. I am always happy to try out and evaluate new L’Oreal Men products. Two weeks ago I have got two L’Oreal Men Expert anti-perspirant deodorant sprays to try out. My choice went to Shirt Protect and Thermic Resist. There are also five more sprays in the range: Fresh Extreme; Cool Power; Carbon Protect; Sensitive Control and Invincible Sport.

L’Oreal Shirt Protect antiperspirant deodorant spray was my first choice, because I usually wear blacks and of course I hate when I have big white marks on my sport wests. Luckily Shirt Protect spray protects my clothes indeed. Consequently I do not have to throw out my favourite wests because deodorants had damaged them. L’Oreal Shirt Protect antiperspirant deodorant is also powerful and keeps the bad odours perfectly away. Has very refreshing, youthful fragrance. I have nothing against L’Oreal Shirt Protect anti-perspirant deodorant spray.

In my opinion red L’Oreal Men Expert products have the more masculine fragrance. I use red L’Oreal shower gel and red L’Oreal roll-on, following I was excited to try out the red coloured L’Oreal Men Thermic Resist anti-perspirant deodorant spray. I was not disappointed, the fragrance is delicious – masculine perfume like. I am happy to use this spray on any occasion. This anti-perspirant deodorant spray is heat resistant, in that way does not let me down even in hottest situations, like extreme temperature and physical exercise. Thermic Resist is the best summer holiday antiperspirant deodorant. I always carry it with me in my backpack.”
Thanks, Thomas
