All about the Vaseline Healing Project + Hamper Giveaway

Brands that take their corporate social responsibility seriously have a really special place in my heart and in my life – and Vaseline is one of such brands.

Together with Direct Relief, Vaseline is on a mission to help restore the skin of 5 million people living in vulnerable conditions by 2020. And considering that over 90% of HIV sufferers develop serious skin conditions but there is only 1 dermatologist for every 3-4 million people in the public sector of health care, the need for the Vaseline Healing Project is greater than we all realize. 
During this year, Vaseline has educated over 370 nurses, doctors and other medical professionals on essential skincare, through dermatological training, and effective treatment for their patients – and that’s just the start. 
Vaseline aims to improve skin health by donating both products and equipment to clinics in need and by providing training to healthcare workers along with a national initiative to bring training, treatment and relief to all South Africans in the upcoming months.

Male Beauty: Vaseline MENFace Even Tone Expert Moisturizer Review

Hey guys (pssht, no pun intended!), going forward, you can expect to find some really great reviews of  male beauty & grooming products from our very own (and very first, male beauty reviewer) – Sohail.

Sohail will be our very own Guinea pig for all aspects of male beauty and grooming (well, what else are younger brothers for?) and will be compiling reviews for all of the products that he tests out – like the Vaseline MENFace Even Tone Expert Moisturizer! 

I hope you (and your other half and any other male counterparts that may be lurking around on my blog of which I am unaware) enjoy Veiled Beauty’s new ‘Male Beauty Reviews’ section! Now on to the review..

Vaseline sent over their MENFace Even Tone Expert for Sohail to try out and share his thoughts on it with you guys.

But before we get into the results, let me tell you a bit more about the product. 

The Vaseline MENFace Even Tone Lotion is formulated to provide smooth, even-toned skin and 15x protection from the sun as it contains an SPF of 15. With continued use it aims to leave your skin restored and replenished without feeling greasy.

One more thing, don’t forget to head on over to Vaseline’s website (click here)  and upload a pic of your other half/family member and see what they would look like in the future with sun damage  and  if you share his ‘Worst Face Scenario’ on @vaselineza Twitter, you stand a chance to win a Sunglass Hut voucher or an adventure worth R10 000! Go on and check it out!

How funny is Sohail’s #worstface? 

 And so, here’s what Sohail had to say, after using the product for 2 weeks: 

“Ive never been one to stick to a facial skincare routine, but I ensured that every morning and evening, after washing my face, I used the Vaseline MENFace Even Tone Expert and I’ve definitely noticed the difference as my face  feels a lot smoother and more moisturizer.

I particularly love the fact that it contains an SPF of 15 because, as I mentioned before, I am not one to stick to a skincare routine or even apply sunblock for that matter, so this product definitely does a double duty – providing moisture and sun protection.  

The fact that the bottle has a pump attached to it, made it really simple to get the product out – and it also helped to control the amount of product that came out. 

This moisturizer also lived up to its promise of not being greasy as once I applied it, it absorbed quickly and easily into the skin and the pump made it really simple 

Overall, this is definitely a product that is worth buying, its appropriate for everyday use and I will definitely recommend it to those looking for a great moisturizer ! “

Delayed Sun Damage + POND’S UV Bracelet 

Like many other women out there, I didn’t even know that the effects of delayed sun damage was real until POND’S challenged me to wear their UV bracelet for a day, whilst continuing with my daily activities, to basically track the effect that the sun had on my bracelet – and the results were shocking.

But before we get into the results, I’m sure you all must have the same question on your mind –  what does Delayed Sun Damage really mean? Well, scientists have recently discovered that exposure to the sun, even if it is for a brief period of time, can have damaging effects on your skin for up to 12 hours after sun exposure – yup, totally mind-blowing I know.

Dove’s Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Review 

Before I started wearing a scarf full-time, I had hair that was thick, bouncy and full of volume, however, due to the constant downward pressure that my scarf applies to my scalp, I’m now left with hair that lacks volume and that is much thinner than before.
So, naturally, when Dove sent me their Oxygen  Moisture Range to test out and review, I was really excited to see if it will make any difference to my hair whatsoever!

Pond’s Flawless Radiance Light Infusing Under-Eye Cream Review

If dark circles are your archenemy, then you definitely need an eye cream to help you fight (and win) this battle.

I was recently sent the entire POND’S Flawless Radiance Range, however my skin has been behaving rather badly, so I wasn’t able to test out most of the products in the range – considering that they’re facial products, I just wasn’t willing to risk a breakout. The only product that I was able to test out, was of course the Under-Eye Cream.
