Competition: Win Leighton Denny’s new perfume – NOW CLOSED!

Former dyslexic forklift truck driver turned beauty entrepreneur Leighton Denny recently launched his new perfume Light & Dark.

Light & Dark eau de parfum

Typically we were not surprised to learn that Leighton has not just put his name to a perfume concocted by a chemical company but choose all the ingredients and got them put together himself.

In a very classy black and white box L & D – which also stands for Leighton Denny is “for the woman who likes to feel powerful yet sophisticated”!

We have one sample to give away – all you have to do is answer the simple question at the end of this article to win!

It’s a lovely oriental floral fragrance. And as Leighton points out to us at the launch he personally selected the unique combination of oils in the scent which include pepper, myrrh and incense.

Other notes are gardenia, jasmine, lilly and rose, along with top notes of mandarin, grapefruit, peach and white pepper.

Leighton says: “For those who want to seduce, this is the perfect weapon. It is wild, mysterious and intoxicating – a scent that women love to wear and that men adore on them.”

Light & Dark eau de parfum does smell wonderful and its a great price too at just £43.50 for 70ml and can be purchased online at

London: What happens when you can’t find an anti-ageing serum that works for you? The answer for Denise Bell-King was to make it herself!

Unable to find a high quality, simple anti-ageing serum for her own use, Denise decided to create her own, offering a product that gave excellent results at affordable prices. Her product, Age Defy Serum has worked for women throughout the UK, selling via her website

Denise, 49, came up with the idea of creating her own serum a few years ago after using a well-know brand of skincare that included aromatherapy oils.

“Aromatherapy oils had been fantastic to my skin for 10 years, but the problem is, if you haven’t used them and you hit your 40’s, they’re really not going to actively anti-age you if you haven’t done that much before. From the research that I’d done over the past ten years I knew that mineral oils were absolutely out, but that some ingredients were great and the simpler I kept the formula, the better!”

Denise created a formula that included Retinol-A, Jojoba and Palm Oil that she tried out on herself and that fulfilled everything she wanted to achieve. “The results were fantastic, and since its launch in 2007, hundreds of men and women have written to me saying how great the results have been for them too.”

Age Defy Serum boosts your skin’s defences from the inside out and dramatically reduces wrinkles furrows and frown lines. It will soothe, strengthen and age proof your skin on your face, neck and is perfect for smoothing away the tell-tale signs of ageing on the backs of hands too.

Packed with high quality ingredients including Palmitoyl Pentapetide-3, Pro-Retinol, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E, Age Defy Serum has helped thousands of women to achieve younger looking skin.

Age Defy Serum is particularly effective on the following areas:

• Age sports and pigmentation
• Crepey Neck syndrome
• Nasal-labial lines
• Crows Feet, wrinkles and saggy eye lids
• Decolletage
• Jowls


Elixir News has teamed up with Age Defy Serum to bring you an amazing offer of buy 1, get 3 FREE! “Now you can get six months of our 200 ml size serum for an amazing price of just £39.95, which makes it incredible value. At these prices, you can buy 1, keep one, give 2 away to friends and still get great skin yourself!” Said Denise.

To take up this brilliant offer, simply call 0800 848 8101/8122 or visit quoting Elixir News to bag your purchase – remember, you need to hurry as this offer is only valid until end of July 2009!

Please also note that no money equivalent is offered and the Editor’s decision is final.

Win Kim Wilde’s new book for first-time gardners


For those who are eager to tackle the gardening this year but don’t know where to begin, First-Time Gardener is the answer. Packed full of practical tips and detailed step-by-step instructions, this book is the beginner’s guide to gardening. Kim Wilde turned to gardening as a form of therapy to escape from her hectic show biz schedule. Now she is a recognised expert in the field.

Beautifully illustrated throughout this one-stop guide will teach you the very basics of what gardening is about.

• Why gardening can be so rewarding
• Why it’s important not to expect too much too soon
• Why planning is the key

Details of each essential garden technique:
• Main soil types and the benefits/drawbacks of each

This book assumes no prior knowledge and takes the reader through the basics of planning a garden, choosing plants and turning ideas into reality – including how to make the most of climbers, containers and hanging baskets. But it will also help you assess what you’ve already got in your garden. Not all gardens should be created from scratch, as per the TV makeovers. In fact, if you can wait a while to see what happens in your new garden, then you may find you’ve inherited some weird and wonderful plants.

Kim Wilde studied horticulture and planting design at Capel Manor before becoming a resident designer on BBC’s ‘Garden Invaders’. She has since presented daytime coverage of ‘The Chelsea Flower Show’ and ‘The Great Garden Guide’ as well as gardening slots for GMTV and ‘This Morning’.

Get fresh for the Party Season – win a complete oral hygiene kit worth £70


Win an Oraclens Mouth Freshening kit containing natural ingredients worth £70!

The kit includes: Mouthwash; Toothpaste; Citrodent Oral Spray;Powerfloss; Toothbrush; Pocket Set AND Handy ‘finger-held’ sized interdental brushes; Tongue cleaner and a Floss mounted toothpick R.R.P £70

Simply email us at with your name and address, stating Oraclens in the email heading. Competition closes on 15 December 2007. No cash equivalent is being offered and the Editor’s decision is final.


For the health conscious amongst us, Oraldent, the oral care specialist, has created the very first completely natural range of mouthwash and toothpaste, OralClens Natural. Effectively fighting bacteria and tasting great, OralClens Natural offers you the healthy way to ensure optimum oral hygiene and lasting fresh breath all day – the completely natural way.

With the average woman absorbing up to five pounds of chemicals every year through the use of cosmetic products, the time has come for consumers to look to more natural products that will not compromise our health. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), which originally was used as an industrial degreasant and floor cleaner, is commonly found in almost all toothpastes acting as a foaming agent. SLS has been proven as a skin irritant, but it can also cause recurrent mouth ulcers in 1 in 4 of the population. OralClens Natural toothpaste contains no SLS and is completely free from all other synthetic products.

Sodium Benzoate is a synthetic preservative commonly found in fizzy drinks, but can also be a key ingredient in mouthwashes, even though recent studies suggest a link to DNA damage. Once again, OralClens Natural mouthwash contains no sodium benzoate; it is also alcohol free and so is kinder and gentler on your mouth and gums and suitable for all the family.

Oralclens Natural mouthwash and toothpaste is instead based on Citroxx, the powerful organic anti-bacterial agent already used widely in the food preparation industry. Citroxx is a clinically-proven natural anti-bacterial containing bioflavinoids enhanced with fruit acids extracted from the pith of oranges.

OralClens Natural comes in two invigorating flavours; Mint, for an instant burst of cleanliness and Citrus, for a fruitier feeling.

Richard Thomas, Managing Director of Oraldent says: “OralClens Natural truly is the only completely natural range of toothpaste and mouthwash proven in laboratory tests to kills 99.9% of oral pathogens which cause bad breath and plaque. People can rest assured that they are using a completely natural product that will clean their mouth and leave breath fresh all day long without harming the body in any way”.

· The Oral hygiene market is estimated to be worth £758 million in 2007

· The fastest growing sector of the market is mouthwashes and ancillary including dental floss and inter-dental brushes.

· Cosmetic mouthwashes used to be associated with breath freshening but consumers are now using them for oral health benefits
