The Body Shop Superfood Face Masks – which ones are worth the spend?

I’m sure by now you’ve seen The Body Shop Superfood Face Masks on blogs and social media. They were launched in the later half of last year and I decided to pick up the Himalayan Charcoal one. I was suffering with mild breakouts and congestion and was hoping it would help. Then I was so impressed by it I decided to purchase them all. I waited until they had a 3 for 2 sale in last year which saved me quite a bit. I know these masks might be expensive for some, myself included, so let me tell you which ones…

MorpheMe March Brushes are MAC dupes?!?

Hiya bellas, I got my MorpheMe March brushes last week and some of them looked sorta familiar. I rummaged through my brush collection and tried to spot the closest looking ones. Then I put them to the test to see if they were dupes and here’s what I came up with. Morphe M401 – $14 This large pointed powder brush is perfect for baking under the eyes as well as sweeping away the bakage without disturbing the lower layers. It’s fluffy enough to apply blush to the cheeks as well as a tapered tip for contouring. The tulip shaped brush…

MAC Mariah Carey Collection + Giveaway

Happy Monday again bellas, I can’t even surprise you with the giveaways anymore because the title gives it away. Yeah yeah, corny I know.

On one hand the MAC Mariah Collection is the most stunning one I have EVER seen. On…

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First Impressions

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set. Since Tarte offer free international shipping for orders over R1 024,…

FEATURE – Why I chose Laser Treatments over a Dermaroller

I’ve been seeing at-home Dermaroller kits being sold left and right. Claims of reduced acne, blemishes and scarring, skin rejuvenation and to fight signs of ageing. I’ve had close friends and relatives rave about their success stories but something always held me back. I started searching for the downsides, the negatives, the horror stories. What I found scared me beyond belief and I decided if I was ever going to do it, I’d go to a doctor or trained professional. Just think about it. The Dermaroller punctures good and bad skin. Whilst it might be great for collagen production where…
