Turn your bath into a revitalising bubble spa!

Spa baths can be a bit pricey but now you can create a spa in your own home with the bubble spa bath mat. Designed to duplicate the effects of a whirlpool bath, the bubble spa swirls the water and generates powerful bubbles to revitalise your body leaving you feeling totally relaxed. The soft air mat is placed in the bath and fills with air to cushion your body. There are over 300 individual aeration vents which produce the powerful bubble action and the variable control allows you to customise the bubbles to suit your massage. It’s easy to set up and comes with a handy wireless remote to select the option you require whilst relaxing in the bath. There is also a timer facility to set the bath spa depending on how long you want to soak for. At last you can have a spa day without even having to leave your house!

Mejikara anti-wrinkle goggles better than Botox?

If you’ve got a few cheeky eye wrinkles appearing and like myself can’t really get your head around the whole Botox thang – then check out these babies from Japan – I mean it couldn’t really be anywhere else could it. Simply wearing these ‘goggle-style’ glasses for 5 minutes every day will apparently improve the appearance of your face.  Will it? I mean *really* will it?

On the inside of the ‘Mejikara’ there are specially-designed ridges which massage and help your skin. It puts gentle pressure on the skin and pushes those sagging eyes back up to where they once were. But how do they stay up once you take the goggles off, that’s what I want to know?!

It might seem like another wacky Japanese invention but in fact the ‘Mejikara’ has been a bit of a sleeper hit, and I suppose it does beat injecting your face with poison! Do we love it or leave it?

Bye bye Botox new iPhone app for wrinkles!

I know there a some weird and wonderful iPhone apps out there but an iPhone app secially developed to zap your zits and rid you of your wrinkles while you chat on the phone! WTF!?

Dr Greg Pearson’s AcneApp uses 420 nanometer blue light and 550 nanometer red light to help kill bacteria and promote collagen growth and the best bit, it only costs around £1.20 and apparenlty works on your skin whily you chit chat you day away, errrr result. He told the New York Times: ‘This would have to go through a lot more clinical study before I could quantify its efficacy.’ but that he was ‘fascinated by the concept that users would potentially be able to treat their acne while talking on the phone.’

However, as you can imagine critics of the new app incluing an NY dermatologist Dr Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, are sceptical about the AcneApp really working, stating: ‘In studies we’ve done, data has shown that both blue and red light have a low efficacy range in acne treatment.’ As well as the possible harmful effects of ultraviolet rays while the iPhone or iPod Touch is being used. 

 Mmmm what do we think girls? is this app hot or not?
