Dark Circles, Saggy, Baggy Eyes?

Volunteers Wanted

I’m lucky not to suffer from under eye bags, dark circles, crow’s feet or drooping upper eyelid. But then again I’m nearly 50 and they say that as you get older, the eyelid skin becomes thinner, more lined and less toned so my troubles could be just around the corner.

So I’m preparing for that day by developing an eye cream that assists all of these eye area problems. But I have one major hurdle…. I can’t test it!  Without having these problems myself how can I make sure that the ingredients I’m including actually work? Sure, I can make sure that the look and feel of the cream is fine but that’s secondary to the efficacy of the product.

So this is where you come in.  I’m looking for five volunteers (men or women) to trial my eye cream for one month and provide feedback about its  effectiveness. You must be prepared to provide regular feedback and take progress photos at during the month trial.

If you suffer from any of the following, under eye bags, dark circles, crow’s feet or drooping upper eye lid and you do not currently use an eye cream then simply email me at [email protected], Attach a photo of yourself (I need to see your eyes) and tell me why you would like to take part in helping me develop this brand new eye cream.

Applications for volunteers closes on Tuesday 14th May at 5pm and announces in next weeks newsletter.

Lemons Water

Love Lemons!

I prefer to drink lemon water rather than plain water. I love its sourrness but it is also good for you. Here are 3 reason why you too should be drinking a cup of lemon water. every day..

It’s clears the skin.!Great for combating skin ageing. It also helps to purge the skin of toxins leaving it clear as well.

It’s cleansing. It acts as a liver cleanser by assisting in detoxification. Purifying and stimulating the liver to produce bile, an acid required for digestion.

It aids digestion by relieving indigestion and helping to flush our your system.

Ebay Store

Ebay Store

Open for buisness: Whenever I  announce a new offer to our customers, without fail I would receive at least a dozen emails saying “well, that’s great Vicki but I don’t have a credit card”. I was really surprised by this as I assumed with mass consumerism that everyone would have either a credit or debit card. Between you and me I wish I didn’t have one either.

Now no one needs to miss out on the chance to purchase SKN Complex products as our eBay store is now open for business. You can still use your credit card but you also have Paypal and direct deposit as a payment option. All products will be available from the 11th May 2013.

To celebrate the launch of SKN Complex on Ebay we are offering 10% off all products and free shipping on all eBay orders for the first month.

Cruelty Free

Don’t be misled! Consumer group Choice says an investigation into cosmetics companies has revealed a large number are misleading customers about their animal testing policies.

It has found that many are allowing animal testing because its a requirement in order to gain access to the lucrative Chinese market but they continue to tell the Australian consumer that its cruelty free.

As a consumer, we all need to ask the right questions to ensure the products we purchase are truly cruelty free. Ask whether the product or  ingredients in it are tested on animals and if its sold in any country that requires mandatory animal testing.

At SKN Complex,  I can confirm from discussions with my suppliers that our products are not tested on animals. We will be updating our FAQ’s shortly to include a Cruelty Free statement.

Audrey Hepburn

Classic Elegance

Audrey Hepburn would have turned 80 on the 4th May. She was known for her beauty, elegance, and grace. She kept her fashion simple but elegant taking the “more is less” approach which made her a style icon still to this day.

However, her life was more than just her iconic style and starring roles in  Breakfast at Tiffany’s (still one of my all time fav’s) and Roman Holiday but of helping others. She dedicated the last part of her life to helping children in need around the world as a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef.

She was and will continue to be an inspiration to many women for years to come.
Audrey Quote

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that

she carries or the way she combs her hair.”  Audrey Hepburn
