Longwear and lightweight? Wow! I really needed to try this for myself. Not only it is really lightweight but it also feels really breathable and looks super natural. It has a medium-to-full buildable coverage that stays fresh and vibrant as if just applied.
It is formulated with a blend of raspberry, apple and watermelon extracts that improve the look of skin and give you a wonderful radiancy. Thanks to the skin-matching technology you are sure to find the right shade for you between the 33 shades which go from deep espresso to the fairest tones. 
I really like this foundation, it goes on beautifully even if applied with fingers. I love the natural finish it gives and how light and fresh it feels. It really feels so good on my skin without any touch-ups!

Let's Spring clean with the Gtech AirRam K9!

Longer and warmer days are ahead of us, Spring is coming and I think is time to think about giving the house a good Spring clean! What a better way to start the new season than with a fresher and cleaner home? If you don't know where to start your Spring cleaning, don't worry as it this all down to having a plan and being very organized. One reason why I am starting so early my Spring clean is that I like to go room by room and move-on to the next one when I am done. I think doing a bit each day and see the results as you along is a great motivation! 
Of course what is the most important tool to Spring clean like a pro? Of course the vacuum cleaner! So before I put my gloves on and get to work let me introduce you my new best-friend the Gtech Air-Ram K9. So, if you have furry friends in the house like me you are sure to love it. As a matter of fact our furry goof balls can bring a smile to our face and brighten our days but can surely leave a  dirty mess behind! Although I can't stop my  dog's shedding now thanks to the Gtech Air-Ram K9 I got power and efficiency on my side to get rid of that stubborn dirt my dog leaves behind! It is definitely making my spring-cleaning more enjoyable for sure!
In 2001 entrepreneur Nick Grey armed with a passion for design founded Gtech with a clear mission statement:

"Ecofort aims to allow people to maintain and improve their living standard without using more energy. The company is committed to providing reliable products of the highest quality and energy-efficiency. The focus is reducing impact: both on their client's budget and the planet!" 

The Gtech AirRam K9 is just the perfect vacuum for anyone who has four legged friends in the house. It is really simple to use and above all very efficient. It is great news that the Air Ram K9 comes with a 22V Lithium-ion battery and thanks to its energy efficient design you can clean the whole house twice on one 4-hour charge. The Gtech AirRam K9 gives you great performance cleaning without the cord so you can reach all the hidden corners of your house without snagged cords troubles! The AirRam K9 makes cleaning easy and quick as pet hair doesn't get stuck in the mechanism as it would with other vacuums. Its lightweight design (only 3.5 kg) allows you to carry it around the house with ease. From carpet to tiles and hard-floors the AirRam K9 delivers a high-performance cleaning on all surfaces and all without setting changes.
It has a very-low profile so you can really reach every corner of your furnitures such as under the sofa or tables for a super efficient clean! Another feature that I love about the AirRam K9 is the scented tab in the filter, this way you can deodorise the house while vacuuming! As a pet owner you know how pet odours can cling inside vacuum cleaners leaving bad odours behind. Well, no more of this, thr K9 thanks to the floral scented tabs in its filter leaves a fresh and clean scent in the room. And when you all done with the cleaning you can empty the dirt storage in a flash and with no mess by ejecting the tubular dirt bale straight into the bin!
Happy Spring Clean!
