Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner


The packaging of this product is incredibly pretty however I expected a much better colour payout for the price. There are cheaper products that show up better on my eyelids, perhaps their formula is not as beneficial as Physicians Formula.

Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

Revolutionised my makeup-removal routine!!!

I love using Micellar water to remove my makeup, it certainly has made my makeup removing routine a lot easier. I keep this and a pack of cotton pads next to my bed. For the first few days, I used just this to remove my makeup, went to sleep and woke up the next morning to my skin looking healthy and fresh.

It removes BB cream or foundation very easily without drying out the skin. This product by Garnier is equally as good as, and much better priced than, the Bioderma one, which retails for about 3 times the price. From now on, I’m only buying the Garnier Micellar Water.

The only reason this product gets 4 stars and not 5 is because it doesn’t remove eye makeup very well, understandably so given the “gentle” nature of the product however it is quite a mission to use one cotton pad for this product and still have to use eye-makeup remover pads.

Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

The Waterproof version of this is the bomb

I bought the waterproof version of this mascara and while the thickening effect was somewhat compromised, the staying power was impressive! I actually went to purchase the Maybelline Rocket Waterproof Mascara after reading reviews but I couldn’t find it (I wonder if we get that one in SA?) so I bought this one prior to my trip to Mauritius.

I swam, I snorkelled and the mascara did not budge. It is a bit of a mission to take off but I bought makeup remover wipes specifically designed for removing waterproof makeup and it came off fairly effectively then. Definitely recommend.

Garnier Even & Matte Instant Radiance Scrub

Garnier keeps giving good gains

This product is well worth the money. I am not quite a fan of the screw-on lid (would prefer one that flips open) but the product is lovely. I have oily skin and have found that it removes excess oil. I use the Garnier make-up remover facewash as well for times when I have lots of make-up on. Overall, one of my favourite skincare ranges.

Sensodyne Repair & Protect Toothpaste

Brings peace of mind

My boyfriend has sensitive teeth so he purchased this toothpaste. I have been using it to and although I don’t have as sensitive teeth as he does, I have noticed a difference whenever I drink hot or cold beverages. I use this toothpaste in the morning and the Colgate whitening toothpaste at night. Worth the money, very effective results. Would suggest brushing exactly where you experience sensitivity first as the product is a bit thick and I feel that it seals that tooth in perfectly as a result.

Satiskin Exotic Ocean Paradise Foam Bath

Please try this out, you won’t regret it!

After purchasing this product, I simply don’t see any reason to pay extra for Radox. The full range smells heavenly, with a multitude of options to suit your olfactory preferences. This product is great value for money, at about R55 you can be sure that this product will last you for months (depending on how many bubbles you like). The handle on the bottle allows for easy pouring too. Love this product!
