Solal C-Serum is a hidden gem that tackles dryness, uneven texture and assists with ageing

I bought my first bottle of Solal C-Serum almost 2 years ago. I was suffering with really dry, dehydrated skin and one of the ladies in Dischem recommended it. Since the price was within the range I wanted to spend on a serum, I decided to try it out. I used a pea sized amount of the Solal C-Serum over my entire face nightly, waited for it to sink in, then applied my moisturiser. It helped my skin from feeling tight and flaking when I wore foundation. After months of use, I purchased my second bottle. Not long after that, I broke…

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…

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.

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…

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…
