The Body Shop Drops of Light Range + my thoughts on a few other goodies

The Body Shop Drops of Light Range is the most recent addition to The Body Shop collection. Consisting of 7 different products, these products are enriched with red algae and Vitamin C to help skin appear more brighter and luminous. Unfortunately we only got 6 of the products available in SA , the healthy brightening eye cream being the missing item. That’s a bummer because with the dark circles I’m struggling with (you can read my rant here), I definitely would have loved to try it. I picked up a few of the products in The Body Shop Drops of…

The BEST concealer in the world + causes of dark circles and how to hide them

Dark circles are the bane of my existence. That, along with pesky mosquitoes and washing my makeup brushes. The never-ending struggle of trying to hide them, wishing they could disappear forever. I don’t have the darkest undereye circles by any means but over the last few months they have darkened considerably. I’ve been on a quest to find the best concealer but also try to find the root of the problem. I’ve been told a number of possible reasons could be causing them. First and foremost, lack of sleep. I get around 3-4 hours of shut eye each night and…

Brighter skin with Pixi Beauty – Get your glow on + GIVEAWAY!

Hiya bellas, I hope you had a fantastic long weekend. Even though I don’t celebrate anything this time of year, I’m always glad to have some much needed time off. I lazed around, binged watched series, made some awesome meals and did a tiny (ahem) bit of shopping. Yes some items were makeup if you must know. Another thing I did a lot of was pampering my skin. Tried a couple of new masks, both for the face and undereyes, and will share once I’ve tested them thoroughly. However, I thought I’d show you some products from Pixi Beauty that…

Garnier New Launches – First Impressions

Hiya bellas, A few weeks ago I attended the Garnier launch and we got introduced to a few of their new products. Some of them were great and and some of them not so much. I initially wanted to do a review on the Ultimate Blends range and the BB creams but I thought why not show you all of it. Ultimate Blends The Delicate Soother Range For the last year I’ve been using Tresemme Breakage Defense shampoo and conditioner. It hasn’t helped much in preventing my hair from breaking or falling out so much. Why I’ve stuck with it…
