Dafna's moisturiser Plus Plus Plus*

About Dafna's

There is a real person behind Dafna's skincare - and that's Dafna who created her anti-ageing line based on the Ayurvedic philosophy.  Her products are not only designed to be good for your skin but also for your general wellbeing.

Luckily for us Dafna hasn't kept her Personal Skincare range to herself and I have recently been introduced to her Beyond Skin Deep Moisture +

(emphasis on the plus)

We all want our skin care to perform but when it's also a pleasure to use that's a skin care win/win ! πŸ‘

In a smart black jar (to protect the precious contents against UV rays) Moisture Plus includes 19 carefully selected ingredients.

A biggie in the jar for me is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a super hydrater and helps with collagen production.  Dafna's HA is a bit special though as it is 'low molecular' so it gets in deeper to your skin which helps even more with skin plumping.

This award winning moisturiser also includes Neroli essential oil (one of my favourite smells) plus lots of other natural and organic ingredients such as Aloe, Bamboo, Argan and Rosemary oils.

Look, feel & smell

You really do need to inhale this skincare as it smells D-I-V-I-N-E, and it is meant too.  Part of the ritual that Dafna's suggest to applying Moisture Plus is to breathe it in.

Dafna's products are of course made to perform but they are also made to be enjoyed and to make you feel great.

There is a video on the ritual of applying Moisture Plus on the Dafna's website.  Although whether you decide to do it their way or your way, it is a pleasure to use.

This first time I smelt it, it took me back to the first time I ever tried Decleor Armoessence Neroli which I fell in love with about 25 years ago.  This smell of Moisture Plus had a similar impact, wonderful.

Along with my senses my skin loves it too, and it's silky texture is easily absorbed into my (on the dry side) skin.

This is how I apply my Moisture Plus

I take a small amount (it is rich so you don't need much) and smooth it across my palms.
Next I cup my face and do some deep breathing to inhale that lovely scent.
Then I press  it into my skin - neck, forehead cheeks
And finally with fingers tips I gently massage it in.

I must admit, because I love using it so much I often repeat the process again (or just give the jar a good sniff!!)

It's also really nice to use on my hands if I feel like a really good pamper.

Perfect to use AM or PM, due to the relaxing and Ahh.. feeling it gives,  I am choosing to use this at night as I have more time to enjoy using it then and it sets me up for sweet dreams. πŸ’€

Invisalign - Update #5

3 months to Go

(My fifth Invisalign update for you - if you would like to read previous posts please click HERE)

I have just put Tray 31 in, and that's Tray 31 of 43, so I have 12 trays left!

When I committed to Invisalign, I started off with 43 trays and instructions to change trays every 2 weeks.  That equated to 86 weeks, which is 19 months, a year and a half, whichever way you say it it is a fair amount of time...

Luckily for me things changed and I was allowed to speed things up and go for a weekly tray change, which means here I am with just 3 months left :)

Whilst I am getting excited that the end is coming, it has, so far, been a breeze.  If I was still looking at a 2019 finish it wouldn't be all doom and gloom.

This is how I do it

Some trays have been harder to put in than others, but I haven't yet had one I haven't been able to fit.

The general advice is to put new trays in last thing at night which I used to do.  However as my night time routine is pretty lengthy, I now put my new tray in after dinner.

It can sometimes take a while to get a new tray in, plus once fitted you need to use a chewie to really get it into place.  If I am being rushed (i.e. "Turn off the light Emily"), I find it harder to do.

Fortunately getting trays in after the first time has never been a problem.

I use my thumb and index finger on my left hand to get trays in and out (I'm right handed).  My nails have suffered a bit, my orthodontist did give me an aligner tool, but I just couldn't get on with it.

Notes to self

Each and every tray comes in a numbered packet, and there is a notes box on the packet that is begging to be written in.

My trays came in 4 boxes and at the end of each box I write myself little notes on each of the new packets as I line them up ready to go in!

The notes can be anything from a reminder, a countdown or a motivational quote from me to me...

Previous notes I have written have been:

  • Are you back at the Gym?
  • You're in Spain!
  • Buy some SPF 50
  • What's your weight?
  • Did you remember to fix the skirting?

They can be and often are a bit random, I often think 'what were you thinking about ?', but it makes Monday change over day a bit more fun and not just another week nearer my goal.

The Answers

  • Are you back at the Gym? - Yes :)
  • You're in Spain! - Majorca to be precise and it was lovely, thank you 😎
  • Buy some SPF 50 - Still using up old stock, but when I do it will be Heliocare 360 or Skin Tech Melablock
  • What's your weight? - Stable! 
  • Did you remember to fix the skirting? - Skirting Board in the downstairs loo - Yes of course, no one else was going to do it!
