Shop High-End brands such as Bobbi Brown, Clinique...

Hiya bellas, Today I thought I’d share with you one of my tips for shopping high-end brands at discounted prices. I know most people don’t know this because when I refer them to the websites, I always get a “Seriously?”, “Oh my word” or “I can’t believe it” response. Some of my favourite high-end brands have what they call ‘Outlet’ pages. Basically, they post products that have been discontinued or aren’t doing that well on the sales front for much cheaper prices. It also includes any limited edition items left over from the launches. You can save hundreds of Rands…

Did I find my perfect moisturiser in the Clinique ...

Hiya bellas, Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve been so focused on testing products and sharing promotions over on Instagram, I haven’t had a chance to take pics for the blog. I’ve previously spoken to you about the Clinique #HydrationBar campaign in this post. If you missed it, I received three moisturisers from the brand to test out. Last month I embarked on a journey in which I used each of the moisturisers for 10 days to find my perfect match. It might sound like a short while but I’ve tested so many products, I can usually gauge if…

Happy hump day bellas, As I mentioned in my last skincare post, this month sees me trying out some new products from Clinique.

This will not be a review of the moisturisers, YET, but I will be telling you what I’m going to be doing with them. First things first, let me give you a short review on the products I have…

How I remove my makeup by double cleansing ft. Cli...

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…

Clinique Free Gift with Purchase

I’ve always been a fan of Clinique products. I used their moisturisers religiously for many years to assist with my dry skin. I inherited a couple of blushes from my mom and I still reach for them every now and then. I swore by their Anti Blemish Gel for treating spots and getting rid of them overnight. Until the prices started rising. I just had a baby and I could no longer afford buying their products. It’s been years since I purchased something from Clinique (excluding a couple of gifts I received) so when I purchased the Beyond Perfecting Foundation I…

July Favourites

OMG can you believe it’s August already. I don’t know where this year is flying to but I just can’t keep up. 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…
