Monday Must-Haves

The festive season is officially nigh, and to make that budget even tighter; here are some of our favourite products currently on the market.

Studio Box 

Boutique boxing studio Studio Box offers high-end amenities and equipment that would rival anywhere in the world. The studio gets immediate points for innovation; crosses on the floor so you know where to place your feet, bags filled with water so it’s easier on joints and hands, and instructors that know their 2’s from their 3’s. But try any class, and you’ll quickly learn this gym is a lot more than just a pretty face. “The only way to truly experience why Studio Box is a game changer is to book a class!  No boxing experience is necessary, we teach you everything you need to know”, says founder Dwayne Rowsell.


Bondi Sands Fragrance Free Sunblock

Recognising the importance of protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful effects, Bondi Sands is set to extend its Suncare range, with the launch of two new broad-spectrum products for the face and body. Providing superior coverage, the SPF50+ Daily Face Sunscreen and SPF50+ Broad Spectrum Sunscreen safeguard against both UVA and UVB rays. Designed to hydrate and moisturise, the fragrance-free lotions provide a skincare pick-me-up, thanks to the inclusion of nourishing Vitamin E and soothing Aloe Vera. 

Bondi Sands’ SPF50+ Fragrance Free range is available at Unichem, Life Pharmacy and Farmers.

Indian Summer 2019 Rosé

Last week Waiana Estate, New Zealand’s hottest up-and-coming rosé specialist, released its five star, 2019 vintage of Indian Summer rosé. Not only is the bottle big and beautiful enough to sit proudly as a dinner party centrepiece, but it has an unreal taste to match. The 2019 vintage is a unique blend of pinot gris, viognier, cinsault and merlot and made in true Provencal-style. Expect drops of dry, ultra-pale pretty pink rosé for the light wine lovers. It was a huge hit last year in NZ and if our predictions are correct... Indian Summer is set to be the rosé of the season all over again!
