CLOSED The Pond’s 7 Day Challenge + GIVEAWAY

June 5, 2014

This Giveaway has ended!

A few months ago I was approached by Pond’s to participate in the 7-day challenge. They enticed me with a huge box filled with all the products in the flawless radiance range as well as gifts to open every day. The challenge was to follow the steps each day so I could reveal my new radiant complexion at the end of day 7. In case you’re not familiar with this range let me quickly fill you in. The flawless radiance range targets dark spots and pigmentation and helps brighten your skin and leaves it looking more even-toned. If you follow my blog on instagram then you might have seen me post a pic of my gifts each day. I even posted a no-makeup selfie. Shocking!

The box of gifts I received came with a daily note and a cute little item to help motivate me. Day 1’s focus was all about caring for your skin. It’s very important to cleanse, tone and moisturise morning and night. Day 2 was all about exercise and getting fit. We all know that exercise and drinking water leads to radiant skin. This was the biggest challenge for me as I honestly don’t get out and exercise enough. Fitness plays a huge role in the health of our skin and I think it’s something a lot of us neglect. Grab a skipping rope and take 10 minutes out of your day to stay active. Day 3’s focus was de-stressing. This is so incredibly important in my opinion. I definitely suffer from the side-effects of stress. It really can wreak havoc on your body. Try and take a few minutes everyday just to relax and unwind. Your skin will only thank you. On Day 4 you need to be mindful of the food you put into your body – eat foods that boost beauty from within. Dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cocoa content) is one of these foods. Cocoa helps reduce stress hormones, which means less collagen breakdown in the skin, and fewer wrinkles. Day 5 is about connecting with friends. They do say that laughter is the best medicine.

Day 6 asked me to be more confident. The first step is feeling beautiful. Try your hand at something new like baking. When you succeed at something new it will boost your confidence. The final day, Day 7 is about finding your inner peace. What does this mean to you? To me it’s doing something that makes me happy and staying positive. I received the cutest little magnet with a very inspiring quote – “Good Things Are To Come”. This is currently stuck to my fridge and I like to look at it every day to help keep me feeling upbeat.

So, what were my final thoughts on this range of products? I love them. They are incredibly affordable (starting at only R49.99) and effective. I’m actually kind of obsessed with the Flawless radiance Even Tone Facial Foam. This does a fantastic job of removing makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft. I even use it to clean my beauty blender sponge as it does such a good job of removing makeup/dirt. Impressive stuff! This is definitely on my list to re-purchase. After 7 days my skin was looking healthier and more radiant, but I think that’s just the start. Your skin is something that you need to look after long-term in order to see some real changes.
