I love it when brands join together and create something different. And what better collaboration than when a beauty brand joins forces with wine – two of my favourite things! So you can imagine how happy I was to receive the new Quay 5 press pack with wine, a scarf, a nifty little beach bag thing, and a Yardley lipgloss.
Two Oceans Quay 5 is about “responsible summer fun in every colour under the sun”. The wine contains just 5,5% alcohol and, even better, has around half the calories of a regular wine. The range contains a red, a white and a rosé. I haven’t tried the red just yet but already love the other two, especially the rosé.
Quay 5 Rosé: Expertly blended for light, fruity and berry aromas and flavours of tangy, refreshing berries, Turkish Delight and candy floss. Just 5,5% alcohol and 63 calories per 120ml glass.
Quay 5 White: Light, fruity and floral aromas and a great taste of fresh, lively tropical fruit with a spark of citrus. Just 5,5% alcohol and 62 calories per 120ml glass.
Quay 5 Red: Expect lively, spicy berry aromas with traces of chocolate and spice. Just 5,5% alcohol and 64 calories per 120ml glass.
I also got the pretty scarf (pictured above) and a fabulous Yardley Stayfast Supershine lipgloss in Perfect Pout. I love that it’s manufactured locally by one of our top local manufacturers but also that it has a delightful fruity fragrance. Although I’m destined for more colder climates this December, I would definitely be popping this into my beach bag if I was spending summer down at the coast.
Note: I know this isn’t a typical Beauty Bloggess post but with the heatwave we’re currently experiencing in Joburg, what better way to cool down than with a glass or two of vino?
