Now that’s Pretty Smart! (Sponsored)


With technology constantly updating I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a site online.                                   

So what is http://www.PrettySmart.co.za? Its a site that allows YOU to rate and review the salons you’ve been to, or see other people’s ratings before you book!  Although the website is still quite new, as more women start to review their beauty salons, it will become easy to find a really good salon in your area by looking for the top-rated salons on PrettySmart. 


This is great news for those of us wanting to research whether certain treatments really deliver on their promises and which salons are the best.   (And those of us who have suffered through a less-than-special massage at a tatty salon because we got caught by a half-price massage deal online… definitely check this website before getting caught again!) At the end of the day we all want value for money and a good service.

So what can you expect to find on the site?  They list all beauty salons, spas, nail bars and aesthetic clinics on one website (they don’t list hairstylists).  Great for finding telephone numbers, addresses, price-lists and even specials!  


The website allows you to search for salons by area or by treatment.  So for example you live in Centurion and you’re looking for a massage one Saturday afternoon – you can simply search for those criteria and then compare the salons that come up; either by price or by the ratings given by other users.       

So what are you waiting for ??? – pop onto the http://www.PrettySmart.co.za website and rate/ review a salon or spa that you have visited recently.  Lots of salons haven’t been reviewed yet – some deserve praise and some deserve health warnings!  And remember, PrettySmart gives a R500 spa voucher to one reviewer each week. 

Remember this site for when you are next looking for any beauty-related treatment, it’s going to become your best friend. 

I see myself spending quite a bit of time on this site 🙂

Introducing Prelox® a patented blend of Pycnogenol and L-arginine designed to actively treat male infertility.


Research shows that close to 10 percent of all couples experience infertility issues at some point, with male infertility contributing to 50 percent of all couples fertility problems. While men may be less likely to openly seek infertility support, they are becoming an increasingly affected by infertility. Male infertility is commonly due to deficiencies in the semen, and semen quality is used as a surrogate measure of male fecundity.

It is with this knowledge and over 40 years of both medical and pharmaceutical experience that Lamelle Research Laboratories has undertaken to provide a possible solution to male infertility.

Lamelle Research Laboratories has achieved extensive credibility using evidence based, innovative and paramedical training. The Lamelle brand is based on a commitment to the principle that all products developed must undergo a rigorous programme of review, research and meticulous production.

Approved by the MCC, Prelox®has been developed using a unique patented combination of Pycnogenol and L-arginine Aspartate and is the first product of its kind in South Africa to have published data featured in an international research journal.

Pycnogenol is an extract of French Maritime Pine, consisting of 70 ±5% procyanidin, oligomer of catechin and epicatechin, in accordance with US pharmacopoeia specifications. Further to the procyanidins, Pycnogenol contains further flavonoid species including taxifolin, phenolic acids and monomeric catechin.


Two Prelox®  taken each morning show multiple benefits including: 

  An increase in the anti oxidative capacity of plasma.

  Stimulates the activity of e-NOS (endothelial nitric oxide synthetase).

  In combination with L-Arginine (Prelox®) increases e-NOS in spermatozoa.
