POND's Age Miracle Double Action Serum - Review by Laura Scanlon

Hey Guys,

I love teaming up with RubyBox, South Africa to test some new skin care products on the market. This time around it was with Pond’s, a brand that has been here or years and has a great reputation. I am a big believer in serum so I was really happy to trial the latest offering from Pond’s.

My Thoughts after 4 weeks.

The serum has a lovely light feel to it with a fresh light smell. I felt my skin really liked the texture of the serum and that it gave an instant silk sensation to my skin. I take good care of my skin so seeing a massive difference was not what I was looking for but I did notice a glow. Along with a healthier looking complexion, I have to say for the price of the serum (R189.00), it is amazing value and the quality is fab. I would highly recommend this serum. See my images for my no make up skin after 4 weeks using the serum :)

So if you’re looking for a great cost-effective Retinol based product then this is your new BFF.

4 Week Environ Review by Laura Scanlon

Hello beauties,

I was so excited to get the opportunity to test the Environ NEW Focus Care Range, a premium range of skin care products specially formulated with intelligent ingredient combinations to target specific skin conditions of ageing, dehydration and sensitivity.

It has been 4 weeks since I started using the NEW range and the results speak for themselves.

Benefits of this range

• Focus Care™ Youth+ Range focuses on smoothing and strengthening aged skin.

• Focus Care™ Moisture+ Range focuses on hydrating and nourishing dehydrated skin.I

My Skin

I have never had problematic skin but I am conscious of fine lines and ageing so I started investing in my skin properly from the age of 26. When I moved to South Africa I became very aware of sun exposure and how it can affect the skin not just on the outside but deep into the under layers of the skin, which can lead to premature ageing.

I have been using Envrion for over 2 years now and I would never change brands as this has everything I could need in a skincare brand. Here is my skin before starting the focus care youth and focus care moisture range. The 2 on the left show my skin quite dull and lifeless. The images on the right are two weeks after using the products and you can see a fabulous glow, life and less pigmentation.

Focus Care Youth+ - Avance Elixir


Helps to reduce the damaging effects of UV radiation and pollution on the skin.

  • Assists in maintaining the appearance of a more radiantly youthful and even complexion.

  • Improves skin’s overall tone, texture and appearance by helping to minimise the visible signs of ageing.

The Avance Elixir has been a great addition to my regime. With a silky texture serum, my skin has an instant glow and softness to it. It’s lightweight enough to wear under your make up daily and should be used at night also.


Focus Care Youth+ Range - Revival Masque


Helps to minimise the appearance of uneven skin tone and promote the effects of natural skin hydration.

  • Helps to improve the appearance of a firmer, regenerated skin, giving a more youthful appearance.

Truly a wonder. I have never used a product that I felt instant results with. This masque glides onto the skin and absorbs quickly. Feels very soft but clearly working wonders. I Love it! . Leaves your skin feeling moisturized and glowing. I have noticed improvement in the overall appearance of my skin.

Focus Care MOISTURE+ - Hydrating Capsules


Assists in softening and moisturising skin, leaving it looking revitalised and radiant.

  • Contains antioxidants that are proven to combat the visible signs of ageing.

  • Leaves a luxurious, soft and silky after-feel

With summer in Cape Town upon us and extra sun kissed skin, I found these capsules to be amazing at night for extra moisture. Not to mention they feel like actual silk. The sense of moisture acts immediately on the skin and you wake up with a glow and totally hydrated skin.


Skin after 4 weeks

Although the lighting is different due to the weather, you can see how my skin is improving week to week. From the dull skin in week one to less pigmentation and more energetic skin in week 4. Always remember to wear a good SPF while using these products.

My Final Comments

  1. I am loving these products as I feel I look visibly refreshed and hydrated.

  2. I feel confident with and without makeup.

  3. I know the products are full of highly researched and top quality ingredients.

  4. I have had no bad reactions to any of the products.

  5. I fully believe in the brand Environ.


Healthy, glowing skin

Confidence from within.
