One of New Zealand’s most iconic household brands, Sunlight, has turned pink and joined the fight against breast cancer with the release of its new limited edition Pink Grapefruit Dishwashing Liquid. Not only does Sunlight Pink Grapefruit Dishwashing Liquid have a gorgeous fresh and lingering citrus fragrance, it gets your dishes squeaky clean at an affordable price.

Because this is a big heavy box worth of goodness, the competition is only open to Wellington residents, sorry.
Recently we were contacted by a New Zealand company named Delicious, asking us if we wanted to try their products. To be honest, neither Amy nor I had ever heard of them before, but we’re always keen to try new things – especially if they’re New Zealand-made and inspired by a bubble in a glass of champagne (that’s where all of our best ideas come from too!), so our reply was a resounding “yes please!”
A couple of days later I got a bulging packet in the mail, crammed full of pink delicious goodness. They’re described as “divinely decadent and sensual”, and the exfoliator, shower gel, hand & foot balm and moisturiser products even smell pink, and I mean that in a good way. It makes a nice change for me, as I normally buy products that have one specific scent (and to be honest, that’s normally just coconut), but these are more perfumey. When my flatmate Smoo tried the hand & foot balm, he said it was probably a bit too girly-smelling for him to get away with (although he liked the way it felt), so we made jokes about how it could be useful in giving yourself a stranger, but my sister’s boyfriend Bambi said the scent was fine for him and his mother and grandmother are the lovely ladies from Herbatint, so we think he is more credible as a judge of beauty products. Both of them however, might prefer Delicious Aqua products, which apparently are “fresh, clean and unisex”.
Either way, it made for a very happy bathtime for me to be able to layer the fragrance upon myself, and then upon my clean sheets. I used the shower gel as bubble bath, and it wasn’t a big bubbler (they do make a bubble bath though which is undoubtedly better), but it made for a nice soak anyway, perhaps due to its manuka and olive extracts. I really enjoyed the exfotliator with apricot seeds – it was soft but I still felt like I was getting a good scrubbing. The moisturiser comes in a pretty pump bottle which is really handy, but my favourite product was the hand &; foot balm. It’s a really intense moisturiser with grapeseed and shea butter, and your hands feel so soft after using it it’s not unlike a much more expensive four-part treatment – but in one easy application. The balm went missing mysteriously before I could pass the products on to Amy to try, but as I am a good person I have brought it to her tonight to try. My verdict on Delicious? I’m really glad to know about it, the range is perfect for when you want to feel really girly, and the balm is going on my list of products to carry all the time.
There’s a list of stockists on their website, but for the rest of the month they’re offering free shipping and a free gift, so you don’t even need to get up from your computer to get yourself some tastiness. Or perhaps there might even be a giveaway from us tomorrow – if you’re really lucky…
