Shower, shave & save?
NIVEA for MEN have announced the launch of Active 3 in Turkey. Already available in the US, the innovative three-in-one product combines body wash, shampoo and shaving gel in one bottle and claims to offer optimal simplicity and convenience without sacrificing grooming results.

The Ostrich pillow is a revolutionary product designed by Kawamura-Ganjavian to help people to take a nap anywhere they are. The idea was to create the perfect place to rest; its soothing soft interior shelters and isolates your head and hands (mind and body) for a short break, without needing to leave your seat. Several research experiments have discovered that even a short 20 minute nap during the day increases productivity at work by more than 30%. However, the Ostrich pillow doesn’t limit its use to the office, they have tested it in airports, trains and also libraries.
