I was ecstatic to be selected as one of the bloggers to test and review Collagen Lift Paris Red Carpet. I really didn’t know what to expect. Ageing is not something I accepted and was a bit fearful about wrinkles, sagging skin and dehydration.

I received a two month supply and the journey began. Each box contains 28 ampoules which is in a liquid form and a drinkable supplement. I had to take 1x 10ml ampoule every morning before breakfast which needed to be diluted in water or fruit juice. It wasn’t so difficult and had a nice red berry flavour so drinking it was bearable.


Each Ampoule contains:

1. Bioactive Collagen
2. Hyaluronic Acid
3. Mediterranean Seaweed Extract
4. Vitamin C

These ingredients are the magic wand that :

1. Decreases wrinkles
2. Increases skin elasticity &
3. Restores plumpness


Halfway through and my skin started looking and feeling firmer. I couldn’t believe the noticeable difference. My family, friends and colleagues would all tell me that I look alot younger nowadays 😉

I also noticed a difference with my nails, which used to be very soft and easily breakable, is now stronger and I can actually grow my nails 🙂 My hair, let me tell you, was falling in clumps. After using the Collagen Lift Paris, I noticed my hair falling less and looks more shiny. My eyes, hands and neck are noticeably wrinkle free. I couldn’t be more grateful for using Collagen’s Lift Paris Red Carpet.

The end result ❤


This journey with rubybox and Collagen Lift Paris Red Carpet has literally changed my life 💖

Winter or Summer, Durban’s humidity is something else so having an antiperspirant that actually works is essential.

Dove is a brand I have tried and trusted for many years. I now got to test the ‘New & Improved’ Dove antiperspirant (Original) as well as the 100 colour antiperspirant (Invisible Dry). Let me tell you, Dove never disappoints.

Both give you 48hr protection and contains a unique 1/4 moisturising cream for softer, smoother, more beautiful underarms. It is alcohol free as well so no burning sensation when spraying on.

The invisible dry has been tested on a 100 colours. I have done my own testing and I can say with confidence that it has not left a mark or stain on any of my clothing which is rather pleasing especially on the darker colours.

I would highly recommend the Dove antiperspirants simply because they have passed all the tests I have put them through 😉

If there’s one thing I love to test and review it has to be Perfume and I am truly loving the Impulse brand ❤

I got to test True Love & Impulse Paris and between the two my favourite is True Love.

True Love ❤
With freesias, muguet and Amber notes has a sweet, romantic smell which is rather intoxicating.

Impulse Paris 💋
With bergamot, tangerine and muguet scents has a very sharp smell which is a little too strong for my liking.


Most of my time is spent at work and dressing up for work does not have to be cumbersome or boring even thou I wear a uniform.

I enjoy changing my hairstyles, make-up looks and using cute accessories. Impulse’s True Love gives me that extra edge, confidence and inspiration to rock my uniform everyday 👑

Blackheads form on your skin because of clogged hair follicles. They are called “blackheads” because the surface looks dark or black. Blackheads are a mild type of acne that usually form on the face, but they can also appear on the back, chest, neck, arms, and shoulders – courtesy health online

With PILATEN’S Blackhead Remover the agony of those ugly bumps have come to an end 🙂


So how do you use the Mask? Simple 😉

To remove blackheads and skin impurities with the Pilaten Mask, first wash the application area with a cleanser to remove excess dirt from the area.

The next step is to ensure that the affected area’s pores are opened sufficiently for the Pilaten Mask to work effectively. This can be accomplished by laying a hot, wet cloth over the area to be treated for up to 10 minutes (the best way is to microwave a wet cloth for 15 to 30 seconds). Alternatively, you can boil water, pour it into a bowl and hold your face over the bowl.

Very Important to Remember:
Wait for the steam to get to a bearable temperature as boiling steam will burn you !!!

Once you feel your pores have been sufficiently steamed, pat the application area dry. DO NOT RUB DRY as it can cause the pores to close again.

Apply a medium layer to the application area, leaving a fairly heavy edge to allow easier peeling.

Allow to dry for 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the Pilaten Face Mask has dried, peel it off to peel out the blackheads and complete the process.

Repeat as required.
