Get Water Wise and Win a Water-Saving Servis Dishwasher

Leading white goods manufacturer, Servis, is inviting residents from around the country to take part in its latest campaign to help save water in June ahead of World Water Week.

Servis is determined to help the nation save water with its Start the Cycle campaign and is looking for water-wise consumers to join in and pledge to see how much water can be saved over the month of June.

Briton’s use around 16 buckets of water a day, which is around 153 litres[1] and 10 litres alone is used in one flush of the toilet. It’s easy to see how a small change can soon make a big difference. Start the Cycle is encouraging households to be more water conscious and find out just how much water they do use.

Start the Cycle image

Households can register with Servis to submit their water meter reading at the beginning of the challenge and take another reading at the end to see how much has been saved. The household who saves the most water will also win a new Servis water-saving dishwasher which can use as little as 5.5 litres of water per cycle.

Servis is inviting families to get involved and pledge to save water between 1 June and 30 June, ahead of World Water Week (31 August – 5 September 2014).

Rita Balestrazzi, brand communications manager at Servis commented “We’re looking for families to get involved in this exciting campaign and really spread the word about water usage in UK households.

“We hope to raise awareness about saving water and by being a little more aware and using water efficient appliances, consumers can save on their water bills.”

The highest water-saving family will be crowned Servis’ water-wise consumer and will receive a brand new water-saving dishwasher. 

To register your interest and apply for more information email startthecycle@servis.co.uk and see how much you can save. For more information about products and ranges visit www.servis.co.uk.

Just for Men AutoStop Review & Giveaway

When I was asked if I’d like to try out Just for Men’s AutoStop, I thought of “Just the man” I could try it out with.  Husband Tony will be 40 in April next year and seems to going through some sort of mid life crisis which involves him changing his career and contemplating swapping his reliable family saloon for a two seater sports car.  He started sprouting grey hairs a few years ago and now has a quite a collection around his temples.

Just for men AutoStop

Just for men AutoStop is unique in the fact that it does not contain ammonia or peroxide and has Oxygen Activated technology that  targets only grey hair, shuts off when it reaches the desired colour and will not colour the original shade of your hair eliminating the chance of over-colouring and ending up with Lego head hair!

Just for Men AutoStop

There is no mixing needed all you need to do, after trying an allergy patch test 48 hours prior, is screw the handy comb applicator onto the end of the tube and squeeze, combing the Just for Men into your hair, starting where your hair is the greyest.  As Tony’s is only on the side of his head this is the only place we applied the AutoStop.

Just for Men AutoStop

It was really easy to apply, mess free and works in just ten minutes, after this hair will need a good rinse and a shampoo.

Here’s the before and after shots.

Just for Men AutoStopJust for Men AutoStop

Tony was a little concerned that by only applying the AutoStop on the side of his hair that there would be a colour difference between the rest of his hair afterwards but because it doesn’t actually change the colour of hair, just colours unpigmented air, there were no obvious signs he’d coloured his hair at all – just no grey!   He’s really pleased with the natural looking results, announcing that it’s “taken years off him!”

AutoStop by Just for Men is available in four shades (Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown and Real Black) priced at £8.69 and available from Boots, Superdrug, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Adsa and Waitrose.  For more information on AutoStop visit www.justformen.com

Giveaway

Just for Men are also giving you the chance to win a six months supply of AutoStop in the shade of your choosing.  To enter simply leave a comment below telling me shade you would like.

The competition will close at midnight of 4th December 2013 and the winner will be drawn at random from all entries received.  It is open to UK residents only and restricted to one entry per household.

This is a sponsored post but has in no way altered my opinion of the product.
