How I remove my makeup by double cleansing ft. Clinique, Elf & Makeup Erasers

Hiya bellas, I’m sure by now you’ve all heard of the concept of double cleansing. I make sure to double cleanse whenever I wear any trace of makeup and with today’s pollution levels, environmental buildup has become a real thing. Some days I get home with my face feeling all gritty and sweaty and double cleansing is the only thing that keeps my mind at ease hoping I don’t get any breakouts. I popped in to Dischem last week to pick up some stuff and I saw a lady adding around 5 or 6 packets of Dove cotton rounds to…

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.

Wishlist Wednesday – The Body Shop

If you haven’t already seen my tweet, The Body Shop is having another one of their infamous 3 for 2 specials.

So in essence I got the moisturiser free in my purchase. This time around,…

I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me. It gives me a chance to sit down, think and write about what I love. So without any further ado, here’s the products I’ve been loving for…

Friday Favourites

As embarrassing as this is for me to say, I’ve probably got more makeup than I’d be able to use in a lifetime. Hi my name is Nisa and I’m a makeup junkie. I know most of you can relate because if you’re reading my blog, you probably love makeup too. It’s literally an addiction. Wanting to try new products you got excited for the first time you saw it, felt giddy and anxious the first time you opened it, and then depending how it performed felt either elated you’d found your new go-to item or upset as hell you’d…
