February 2016 beauty newbies

Tuesday, 2 February 2016


Lots of beauty products land on our desk every day and we have the rather difficult task of testing them and making sure we let you in on all the new and exciting ones to launch. This month we are really excited to share a miracle oil, a unisex scent and a foundation that will change your skin.

Product name: ghd advanced split end therapy
Price: R320
Available: Selected salons
The verdict: A lightweight cream that helps prevent heat damage and repair further breakage. You are left with sleek locks from root to tip.

Product name: Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation
Price: R785
Available: 17 February 2016 at Chanel counters
The verdict: Reveal an outdoor healthy glow with this new fluid foundation from Chanel. With optical innovations and specific ingredients, your skin will glow and your make-up application will be as simple as ever.

Product name: CK2
Price: R895 | 50ml
Available: Selected fragrance counters
The verdict: 21 years ago, CK1 launched their first unisex scent. Now they have launched their second unisex scent and it’s just as appealing!

Product name: Revlon Mascara Collection
Price: From R149.99 – R159.99
Available: Leading departmental stores
The verdict: Revlon has gone and simplified their mascara offering with 5 new and unique mascara and brush combinations. Whether you’re after length, volume, definition or an all-in-one product, this new range has a product for you. We love the colour-coded tops – perfect to grab in a hurry.

Product name: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil
Price: R385
Available: Selected department stores
The verdict: It’s our favourite Eight Hour Cream in an oil form. What more could one ask for? It has a light citrus-floral scent to it, is perfect for pampering and can be used on the face, body and hair. It won’t clog your pores and will leave your skin glowing, your body hydrated and a glossy shine to you hair without the greasy residue.

    I’m thinking of trying out the new Revlon Mascara range even though I have never been a fan of their mascara.

    The CK2 scent would be great to try. Then the Eight Hour Cream – very keen to try that tooooo !!!! The mascara – little bit doubtful the brush seems so small. The ghd advanced split end therapy – yes definitely for my long hair – which I have no intention of cutting.
