Spotlight: Good Housekeeping April Review

Being an ex-digital content producer, I enjoy a good challenge of reviewing products & services. This month I chose Good Housekeeping SA. I am looking forward to your comments.

At the end of the day, any brand or company loves a good (or bad) review of what they have to offer the public.

COMMENTS: With 13 tips for every person to start using today, this article is one of my all-time favourites and thank you to the writer, Nicole Saporita.

The following tips stood out the best for me

Tip 1 – Shell out only for skincare with active ingredients and spend less on products that wash off (Cleanser, body wash, and soaps). Focus more on creams.

Tip 11 – Shop smart with digital discounts. Being a huge fan of all things digital, this tip is definitely a bonus and fingers are crossed for more discounts. For more info visit unileverdeals.co.za and start saving today on essentials such as tea, washing powder and more!

BONUS REVIEW: I absolutely love the Horoscope section on page 126 and always read it every month, thanks for the predictions, Tracy Shaw. The white background with black text attracts the eye a lot quicker, too.
