Zit zapping tips for awful breakouts

Hiya bellas, With the holiday season hastening upon us, not only do we want the hot and sexy summer body, but also the perfect skin. As I mentioned in a recent post here, I’ve been struggling with awful breakouts and started a course of Roaccutane to control it. The first week I used only the cleanser and moisturiser prescribed by the doctor. One of the side affects though is that the breakouts flare up before it starts to get better. This might not apply to everyone but I’ve never had worse pimples EVER in my life. It’s now 20 days…

The Good Stuff + Giveaway

Wow what an amazing weekend it’s been. For those of you who don’t know, we celebrated Eid, the end of our fasting month (Ramadaan) with a family feast on Saturday. It is a day to exchange gifts, wear smart clothes (new clothes if you can afford it) and spend time with family and the community. Whilst it was exhausting to say the least, we had loads of fun, chatted with relatives we haven’t seen in a while and feasted after fasting for 30 consecutive days. Some might think we hadn’t seen food before lol 🙂 I am absolutely elated right…

Lipi-DON’T

If you figured out what this post was about by just reading the title, then yes, I know it’s harsh but it’s the truth. I, like many South African bloggers, jumped on the Lipidol band wagon as soon as it was launched last year in Clicks stores nationwide.
