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…

Why does everyone rave about the Clarisonic?

Back at you with another skincare post. Year after year I stumble across blog after blog. Each one claiming about how the Clarisonic changed their life. Blah blah blah. Once upon a time, they were available for purchase in South Africa. A few years ago in Stuttafords before they closed their doors on us. I tried to get the Clarisonic on special, but there were only accessories left on the shelves. Not a single device to be found as they had all sold out. Fast forward to last year when a family member purchased the Clarisonic Aria for herself. I asked her…

30 day Clinique Moisturiser Journey ft. Clinique #...

Happy hump day bellas, As I mentioned in my last skincare post, this month sees me trying out some new products from Clinique. I’ve been a long time user of their Dark Spot Corrector and I just picked up the Anti-Blemish Serum a few months ago. They also recently sent me 3 moisturisers from their range as part of their Clinique #HydrationBar campaign. 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…

Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Duo for Sensitive...

Sensitive skin is a nightmare for many women I know. Flare-ups, itching, redness and a lot of discomfort. A few weeks back I was invited to the launch of Dermalogica’s new products. Two new additions to their already existing Ultra Calming range. We were seated for a presentation which included clips and advice from the founder of Dermalogica, Jane Wurwand, before being introduced to the new items in the range. The main lesson I learnt, is that any skin type can be prone to sensitivity. Looking back on my own experience, I myself, have struggled with skin sensitivity for years. Before…

Are Glamglow products worth the price tag + a GIVE...

Hiya bellas, Today we’re continuing this week with a BANG. Or should I say BANG, BANG, BANG? Lemme explain. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m already running a giveaway over there. One lucky follower will win themselves one of the new Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascaras. So I thought why not host another giveaway from one of my favourite brands. I’ve tried my fair share of Glamglow products over the years and I’m finding it really hard to choose just one favourite. So I decided to give another lucky reader a chance to win not only one,…

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…
