P C A Skin : Media launch

P C A – Physician Care Alliance

This is the first time for PCA Skin to be in South Africa and they really are making their presence known. The media launch took place in Johannesburg at the Saxon Hotel. Thanks to PCA Skin and Danielle Franco from Bush Telegraph Publicity, myself and a few other members of the media were able to fly out to Johannesburg from Cape Town to attend the launch.

The launch consisted of an informative presentation on the brand as well as their products. Shortly thereafter we were treated to a live demonstration in the center of the room, showing us how the products work.

Here’s a little snippet of the demonstration:

About the brand

PCA Skin was developed in America by an aesthetician and dermatologist in 1990. Their products are grounded in three core pillars; product innovation, excellence in education and unparalleled customer support.

I love how passionate they are in creating products that deliver outstanding results without any compromises on quality, their promise to deliver safe products, efficacy, ingredients and their zero tolerance for animal testing.

Want Wunder-ful Brows?

Wunder2

I think many of us have come across this exciting product via social media or from beauty gurus all around the world and thought to ourselves, ‘Wow, I need this!’.

I became so curious and had to try it out for myself!

WunderBrow: Brow gel

It comes in 5 different shades:

  • Blonde
  • Auburn
  • Brunette
  • Black/Brown
  • Jet Black

I have really dark hair so opted to go with the darkest colour available (Jet Black).

The consistency of the gel is quite thin in comparison to most eyebrow gels and when using the lighter shades, it loses a lot of the colour and coverage. My advise if you’re using the lighter shades is to apply the product to the brow and then add another layer once the first layer has dried.

What is great about the product is that a little really does go a long way! You would ideally apply the product with an angled eyebrow brush by picking up some product from the wand that forms part of the packaging.

“Perfect even the most disobedient of brows with our one-step, long-wear eyebrow gel, WUNDERBROW from WUNDER2! Define, fill and thicken for a more natural brow look that is completely waterproof, smudge-proof, transfer-proof and lasts up to 3 days. Easily brush on the natural looking gel, infused with ‘hair-like’ fibers to fill and sculpt.”

Does it last?

“Our PermaFix Gel Technology locks colour & tiny hair fibers to the skin, giving you thicker and more defined brows for up to 3 days”

The brow gel claims to be waterproof, smudge-proof and transfer-proof! I of course could not resist putting it to the test! It definitely followed through, however, you have to ensure that the product is completely dry. As long as you aren’t using any oil based skincare products/ face washes, it can certainly last for up to 3 days.

How do you remove it?

On the Wunder2 site, they advise that you purchase their WunderCleanse Eyebrow Gel Remover, I did not as I did not find it necessary but that is of course one way of removing it. I simply used some olive oil on a cottonwool bud and it came off reasonably easy.

If you end up trying it, please let me know how it has worked for you in the comment section below ->
