Caviar – for the Face

Ladies, this stuff is flying off the shelves and you want to know why? Dragons Blood Face Caviar is a miracle cream of note.  We’ve tried it ourselves and it really is impressive as an innovative anti-aging formula that helps to volumise and define facial contours.  It works by forming a unique second skin-like film around the face which effectively protects, reduces redness and firms for a smoother, plumper, more youthful looking complexion. Simply put, it’s a powerhouse partner to combat sagging, loss of hydration and firmness of skin, and you can get your hands on it for around R429.90. Details: Available from Beauty Factory in Springfield Value Centre or at Edgars at the Pavilion.
