It’s 2020 – a new year and a new decade! While I don’t ever make any New Year’s Resolutions I do enjoy getting back into routine and focusing on my health after the festive season. All that yummy food and lying around on the beach makes for a wobblier tummy and leaves me in need of a bit of a detox.
There are a number of fantastic health and beauty products that I have completely fallen in love with and since you may be feeling in need of a little bit of self-care too I thought this would be the perfect time to share my finds with you.
Make sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post to stand a chance to win a fantastic prize.
Here are my top health and beauty products that you just have to try out:
When I was contacted last year by Vitalge Nutraceuticals to try out their longevity products I was excited to try them out but I never expected to get such fantastic results.
I receive these products at the perfect time – I had been seriously ill and was struggling to recover from bronchitis. It was the beginning of the 4th school term and so busy. I felt and looked completely washed out.
The Glow Rejuvenation facial serum is produced from pure essential oils. The first morning that I used it I got comments from some of the moms when I dropped my kids off at school because I had perked up so much from the day before.
After using the Glow Rejuvenation for a few days my husband told me I looked years younger than normal.

[Giveaway] I’m absolutely loving the longevity products gifted to me by @vitalgenutraceuticals recently and they came at just the right time for me! The last month has been non-stop sickness for me and my kids, leaving me exhausted and barely able to cope. In addition to this I turned 40 earlier this year. While the age 40 has turned into a fantastic mental health age, especially with regards my confidence and self-love I can’t help but face the facts… I’m wrinklier than ever and my age is now really starting to show. I began taking Vitalge’s Life Force supplements (their premium health and longevity product) just as I was starting to recover from the flu and I could immediately feel the boost in energy and after being dreadfully ill for 2 weeks it was fantastic to start feeling anything close to normal. I love that these supplements are 100% plant-based and all natural – remember I have to be careful with anything that I take since I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict! After 2+ weeks of using these supplements I am feeling full of energy and vitality. I can’t wait to see how this impacts my health long term! At the same time as I started taking the supplements I also started using Vitalge’s Glow Rejuvenation Face Serum twice daily and the results have been mind-blowing. In fact even the parents at the school have made some comments – they saw me looking pale and washed out one day and then fresh faced and healthy 2 days later. I love essential oils and so does my skin. The serum has a spicy fragrance (that I really love) which dissipates very quickly.

The Life Force supplements are also fantastic. I started using them after checking that I would be able to start using them while still on antibiotics for my bronchitis. The supplements are 100% plant-based so I was given the go-ahead.
I had been ill throughout the entire September/ October school holidays and into the first week of the 4th school term. I can’t remember when I felt so rotten. Immediately after taking the supplements I had more energy and started feeling so much better, so that was a huge relief.
When I take antibiotics my body takes such a strong hit. These supplements put me right back on track and fast. Within a few days I had more energy than usual which was superb.
Vitalge has recently brought out Glow Regeneration Hand Serum which I was fortunate enough to have sampled too! It is also produced from essential oils. I am so hard on my hands, so it is one area I really can improve on – this serum felt lovely to use and moisturized my hands beautifully and nourished my skin.

I can thank Nature’s Nutrition superfood powders for getting me into the good habit of having an early and healthy breakfast every morning. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person unless it is late morning and a greasy fry-up. That’s the honest truth!
Since being gifted some of the Nature’s Nutrition range to try I’ve been having daily smoothies and I love how it has changed my lifestyle for the better. My husband and daughter have also started joining me in smoothies for breakfast every day.
My son that is a fussier eater has not been too keen to jump onto the bandwagon… that is until Nature’s Nutrition brought out their Raw Chocolate flavour and it has been a game changer! The thought of having chocolate for breakfast has changed his mind.
I will be writing a full review soon on Nature’s Nutrition Raw Chocolate – keep your eyes open for that post.
Enter the competition at the bottom of this post to stand a chance to win a tub of Nature’s Nutrition Raw Chocolate and a shaker.

My favourite smoothie recipe right now is frozen pineapple and apple, coconut milk, peanut butter, honey, coconut flake, @naturesnutritionsa superfoods powder and @natureschoicesa Aloe Juice. Oh so yummy and when I start my day with this I feel great and energetic all day!
Cherish Beauty By Nature
Cherish Beauty By Nature is a top notch range of skincare products produced from essential oils. I was gifted the Cleansing Oil, Toner, Face Serum and Eye Serum.
My skin just loves this range. My favourite product out of this range is the toner. Unlike so many other toners that I have used it does not make my skin feel pulled tight afterwards. Instead my skin feels fresh, clean and moisturized which is fantastic.
I love keeping this range for using in the evenings as part of my self-care routine before bed.

African Extracts is a rooibos skincare range that I love. I’ve been using the Classic Care face wash, exfoliating face scrub and toner for a few years. I’m also a huge fan of their body butter.
This is the skincare range that I use on a daily basis. It is a high quality skincare range that does a fantastic job and a great price range. This makes it perfect for every day use.
African Extracts is endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty which is always a winner in my eyes.
