New Essence Products Haul

About two weeks back I mentioned that Essence had launched a whole lot of new products that were added to their permanent range here. Shortly afterwards I found them at Dischem and picked up a few I wanted to try. This post has inevitably taken so long for me to post because I had mixed feelings towards some of the items and wanted to test it thoroughly before posting my review. I feel I’m ready now because I’ve been reaching for some of these products on the daily so let’s get on to it. For lips I picked up the…

Wishlist Wednesday – New Essence AW/16 produ...

With us enjoying the falling leaves of autumn and winter creeping upon us here in the southern hemisphere, I must admit, as much as I love sunshine, I cannot wait for these blistering hot days to be put behind us. But alas, along with the cold brings dry, pale skin, chapped lips and tired eyes. Luckily for us, Essence has brought out a whole new range of products perfect to banish winter face. They’re all part of the permanent range so if you miss out, you can be rest assured they’ll be restocked for you to get your hands on…

Essence Merry Berry Trend Edition

Hi bellas, Hope you getting excited with the holiday season around the corner. Today I’ll be showing you the items I picked up from the Essence Merry Berry collection last month.

When the collection launched, a lot of the other beauty bloggers published first impression posts and I found myself in agreement with a lot of the reviews based on each product. The only reason I finally decided to do a full review over here on my blog is because…

The NEW Essence “Nauti Girl” Nautical ...

Hi bellas, I was so happy to see a new Essence Trend Edition collection launched in Dischem at Clearwater on Sunday. It has been quite a while since the last trend edition, Hello Autumn! was launched more than 3 months ago. The collection has a sailor theme that sports the classic shades of blue, grey and red amongst it to celebrate a sailing tour of Summer. After checking out all the items on the stand, I decided only to purchase a lipstick from the Essence Nauti Girl collection which is an orange slightly bordering on peach shade called ‘Miss Navy’.…

Monday Mascara Mayhem – Drugstore Picks

Mascara. Mascara. Mascara. Where do I begin? Up until about 5 months ago, I absolutely hated wearing mascara. Yes HATE is a strong word but I swear, it felt like having goggas (that’s what we call insects) latching on to my lids and blurring my vision. Yes I know I was being dramatic but that’s how I truly felt for a very long time. That, in all honesty, was one of the reasons I’d chosen to get lash extensions in the first place. You can read more about my horrible experience here, but I loved the way my eyes looked…
