QUESTION TIME

Do you use Micellar water in your skincare routine and which brand is it from? Yes I do. Twice a day I use the Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water after washing my face to remove any excess build-up or makeup left on my skin and clear my pores.

Wishlist Wednesday – Which Enzyme Exfoliator to choose??

Hiya bellas, We’re only half way through the week and I already feel like crawling into bed and hibernating for a good few days. We started fasting yesterday (it’s officially Ramadaan for the Muslim community), and it’s not only the early morning wakings I’m struggling with but also the hunger pangs creeping in at around 9am. We are only allowed to ‘break’ our fast with food/drink at 5:30pm so the days are feeling long and taxing.

Winter brings it’s fair share of skin ailments such as dry skin, chapped lips, scaly skin and many forms of irritation and itchiness. If you suffer from dry and dehydrated facial skin, you can…

This is the End … of Acne!

You know in the movie “This is the End”, with James Franco, Seth Rogen and Emma Watson, where the earth splits open and you can see the fiery pits of hell. Well if I was standing over it the first thing I’d throw in is Roaccutane. These last few months have been horrible even though there is a happy ending at the end of this story. So when I started Roaccutane last year I was nervous as hell. I did a post here when I initially started and mentioned the products I was using and then did a 1 month…
