Clere-ly a much needed makeover

Hiya bellas, Today’s blog post is going to be short and sweet, just like what my family thinks of me. If they only knew *inserts evil laugh*. Jokes aside. I wasn’t planning on writing a dedicated blog post for the new Clere lotions because it’s basically just some of their old products in new packaging and with a few more fragrances. However, I felt I needed to because trying out these products, has completely changed my perception of things. Let me explain why. Disclaimer: My intent with this blog post is not to offend or discriminate against anyone. I’m just…

Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation Review

Hiya bellas, I’m sure by now you know that Benefit is one of my favourite brands of all time. You can see my previous purchases from them over here.

Fear not, it still contains the…

I agreed because it was 25% off and I only paid R1200 for the…

Spilling the tea on Chick Cosmetics

Hiya bellas, Over the next few weeks, I’ll be catching up on a lot of overdue posts. I’m finally getting my ish in order and hopefully can get a flow going with these blog posts. Today’s post is all about Chick Cosmetics and when I say overdue, I mean I received the PR drop two months ago already. Yes I know, that bad. Anyhoo, here’s the scoop on it. The first time I got an email from Chick Cosmetics was mid-May saying they’re going to be launching a new line of products and wanted me to test it out. I…

Collagen Lift Paris – Drinkable collagen???

Morning bellas, Last week I finished my second box of Collagen Lift after two months of use. Collagen Lift Paris kindly sent them for me to test out and here are my thoughts in it. What is it? Collagen is a structural component found in the body that provides firmness, plumpness and elasticity to the skin. Loss of collagen in the body leads to wrinkles and sagging skin which comes with age. Collagen Lift has been developed to be absorbed into the body to reverse the signs of ageing. Packaging Collagen lift is conveniently packaged in single-use vials. The gold…
