March / April Specials (2014)

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
John Lennon

With so much going on in the world and our daily lives I hope you are managing to choose happiness on a daily basis! If we see happiness as a journey and not a destination it is easier to find it hidden in those moments of each and every day!

face-pic-croppedThis month we are focusing on cleansing!
Hopefully this will serve as a reminder of the importance of keeping your skin clean. We cleanse at night to remove make-up, impurities, dead skin cells, and excess oil and in the morning, cleansing is beneficial, as it removes any toxins the skin eliminates during the night and refreshes the skin, preparing it for make-up application.

We hope this special offer inspires those who have neglected their cleansing routine.


March / April Specials – 2014

Cleanser specialPurchase any retail cleanser and receive a FREE 30ml exfoliator

As you know Elixir has different cleansing options – all of them milk based.

For those of you who are lazy to exfoliate – mix it with the cleanser and you can cleanse and exfoliate at the same time.


Product Development


At Elixir we have always tried to educate clients to using a milk-based balancing cleanser on a combination skin and to avoid cleanses that contain a high percentage of surfactant. We managed to convert many from foaming to milky cleansers but for those not yet converted we have finally heard your plea for a GEL based cleanser. We have formulated one concentrating on using essentials oils that will assist with the process of balancing oils skins:

  • Bergamot – a great anti septic and skin healing tonic especially beneficial to oily skin
  • Cypress – exerts a balancing action over fluids especially beneficial to sweaty and oily skin
  • Geranium – the great sebum balancer and skin de –congester.

If you are one of those who likes a gel based cleanser (only oily skins) – you can order a 25ml FREE gel based cleanser to trial – as long as you give us feedback once you have used it. Ask Vanessa for details when you next order.

We never stop receiving great feedback on our new anti-ageing oil!

Many clients have reported dramatic improvements in their pigmentation. We would now like to find some willing candidates to take part in a series of photos (before, during and after) whilst using this oil so that we can show others just how well it works. If you would like to take part please contact Vanessa 021 701 9563 and she will email you the details. Please note that if we have a huge response we might not be able to accommodate everyone.

Use your car doors as an advertising space for Elixir!

We have been threatening to offer this for a long time- we are finally ready!

Any client who brands both the front doors of their car is entitled to R220 worth of FREE product per month for a year. If you are interested please email/call Vanessa and we will send you the details. ( T’s and C’s apply).

Last but not least….As we mentioned in our last newsletter Elixir’s price increase will take effect as of 1st May 2014. We are giving you fair warning so that you can stock up before the increase.

So remember to choose happiness for March and April 2014!

As always we love to hear from you.
And seeing as we started with John Lennon let’s end with John Lennon:

“Count your age by friends, not years.
Count your life by smiles, not tears.”
