Gillette has a new M3 Power Nitro razor blade that is battery-operated. The vibration that starts when the button is pushed is supposed to give you an even closer shave with less chance of cutting yourself. The handle and the blades themselves have a modern design featuring bright green stripes. The M3Power is available at the introductory price of NIS 49.90. To complement the new razor blades, you can use Gillette's Mach3 Comfort Gel, with the so-called "anti-friction formula." The shaving gel is available in a fragrance free formula, or with a refreshing fragrance. The price for a bottle is NIS 32. The Women Only lingerie stores, catering to women with cup-size C and up, have started to sell buttoned shirts for women with a bigger cup size. Apparently, for those women it is difficult to find such tailored shirts that you can wear underneath a jacket, such as those that look dressy enough for a business appointment. The shirts come in regular waist sizes (38, 40, 42, etc.), but are bigger around the chest (cup D, DD, E, and F). The prices for these fashionable shirts are NIS 219. To find the nearest Women Only store, call 1-800-393-929. The Nikol cleaning and kitchen products (sponges, rags, tin foil, sandwich bags, etc.) now are recognizable by the new design of the packaging, figuring a black and white checkered floor. New cleaning products from Nikol are the miracle floor cleaning rag, and the miracle counter cleaning rag. These rags are made out of micro-fibers, are soft and are especially suitable for cleaning ceramic tiles or parquet floors. The rags can be washed, and are available in different colors. The price for the floor cleaning miracle rag is NIS 17.90, while the small miracle rag can be had for NIS 10. If you buy two Nikol products at the Supersol chain, you will receive the third free: this deal is valid until the end of the month. If you want to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and some pastry, you can take advantage of a deal offered at the Coffee Bean coffee shops, where a cup of coffee and a pastry, a croissant or a cinnamon roll, is NIS 18. In addition, you will get a free copy of the Hebrew newspaper Yediot Aharonot. This deal is valid from Sunday through Thursday, and lasts until the end of January. My nine-year old is very pleased with the new and improved Natural Formula conditioner for straight and soft hair. She happens to have rather curly hair, but still found this conditioner to take care of annoying knots, and the end result is soft hair that smells good too. The conditioners, for straight hair, curly hair, or colored hair, come in handy bottles with a pump dispenser. The price for a 700 ml. bottle of shampoo or a 600 ml. bottle of conditioner is NIS 20. If you and your family or friends enjoy watching a soccer game while eating pizza and having some beer, it's worth it to buy a six-pack of Heineken beer. On every six-pack of this beer, you will find a coupon that you can use to order a family-size pizza from Domino's for just NIS 27 (instead of NIS 53.90). And if you order this pizza during one of the Champion League soccer games, you will get it for only NIS 22. The deal is valid until the end of March. One of the Solgar vitamins is the HNS Complex, where HNS stands for hair, nails, and skin. This formula supposedly encourages the building of collagen in the body, and therefore strengthens nails, and makes hair and skin look better. The HNS Complex is NIS 108.40 for 60 tablets (a two month supply). Buy now and you will now receive a nail-care set, consisting of nail scissors, a nail clipper, a lime and a cuticle cutter for free. The deal is valid in pharmacies as long as supplies last. Every package of Elite's Shush peanut-flavored corn snacks you or your kids consume will help other children who suffer from cancer to realize their dream trip. Shush has teamed up with the foundation "Bigger than Life" for the second year in a row, and donates 10 agorot for every package sold to this foundation to help fund a trip to Disney World Orlando for 30 cancer patients and their caretakers. The arrangement lasts until the end of February. A 50 gr. bag of Shush is NIS 2.50, and 100 gr. is NIS 3.10. If you're thinking about starting a diet to lose weight (you'll start tomorrow, of course), but can't quite decide which one of the many diets would be good for you, the new Mapa's Guide for Weight Loss might have the answers. This guide (in Hebrew), written by clinical dietician Amalia Eshed, discusses several well-known diets - such as Atkins, South Beach, Zone and Cabbage soup diets. After objectively describing each method and why it is supposed to work, the guide gives a summary and ends with a recommendation. Most of these famous diets are actually not recommended. The few that are include the Bread and the Blood Group diet (but only if you happen to have Group A), or Dr. Shapiro's Picture Perfect Weight Loss. The second part of the book discusses surgical methods such as liposuction, reduction of stomach size, as well as food supplements, medication, and weight loss groups. The price of the Mapa Guide is NIS 98. If you're not quite sure what to give a new mother, or a friend who loves cosmetics products, you can get a special Gift Card at the SuperPharm stores, which you can pre-pay, so she can spend it exactly on what she wants and/or needs. The cards can be charged with an amount varying from NIS 50 to NIS 500, and feature different pictures: A baby, a cosmetic product, or gift packages. The Nerot BeShenkin soap and candle stores are celebrating their 10th birthday with a special gift for those who spent NIS 69 or more in the store. If you buy products for this amount, something that isn't too difficult to achieve, you will receive a bottle of patchouli-lavender-vanilla shower oil for free. The deal lasts until the end of the month. The first Nerot BeShenkin store opened on Tel Aviv's Shenkin street, and now you can find them in Beersheba, Ramat Gan, Kfar Saba, Yehud, Rishon Lezion, and other places in Tel Aviv. Hellmann's Mayonnaise is now also joining the trend of all those bottles of sauce that stand on their "head," so to speak - those inverted bottles you put down on the cap. These squeeze bottles of Hellmann's are available in two versions: Real Mayonnaise, and Hellmann's Light. The price for a 260 or 284 gr. bottle is NIS 9.95. A new game from Winning Moves, meant to stimulate logical and mathematical thinking, is the Da Vinci Code, named after the popular book, apparently. The game consists of 13 black and 13 white stones, each with numbers. Each player has to assemble a code, which the opponent(s) will have to crack. The game can be played by two to four players, and is meant for children ages 10 and up; the price for the Da Vinci Code is NIS 89.90. Especially during the winter months it is very unpleasant to stand barefoot on cold tiles in your bathroom, and a warm bathroom rug is a good solution. At the Supersol chain, you can now find chenille bathroom rugs, measuring 50 by 80 cm., for only NIS 40. The rugs come in the colors off-white, green, dark blue, light blue, red, gray, and pink.
