Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue

Lip Therapy

I really love this product, it heals chapped and cracked lips.  I struggle to find it at local retailers in Pretoria.


Ponds Anti-Ageing products

I had the opportunity to review the new range in the Ponds family called the ‘Age Miracle” targeted at 40+ year old women…

Ponds as a brand have really stood the test of time. When you mention the name ‘Ponds’ the first thing that comes to my mind is the infamous ‘vanishing cream’. The memories I cherish as a ‘young lady’ using her first beauty product.

Years down the line the product has evolved and the packaging got fancier. I just love the classy packaging (it easily competes with more expensive brands).
Combo 1: Facial Foam, Toner and Night cream. The facial foam lathers up nicely without being too foamy. The toner just scrapped the dirt out of my skin, I couldn’t believe how the dirt had clogged up on my skin from using make-up daily. The Night cream just melted into my skin…I was expecting to have a dry-skin feel after some hours but to my surprise my face felt nourished.

Combo 2: Facial Foam, Toner, Serum. I loved how my skin felt when I woke up (from Day 1 products). No dryness at all. I did the facial wash routine and used the serum to moisturise my skin. I loved how light it was and how it melted in my skin so nicely.

Serums are the future in skincare. No oiliness or dryness…the pump makes it is so easy to use. I love how my skin feels…velvety!!

Combo 3: Facial Foam, Toner, Day cream. The Day & Night cream leaves a white residue on my skin that I have to make an effort to rub in. The eye cream is just amazing…it rejuvenates the skin below the eyes and awakens the eyes.

When you are over 40 yrs., you worry about the elasticity of your skin, I took the wrinkle test and was ecstatic when the results said ‘SMOOTH’…I guess ‘black don’t crack’ LOL.

My best 3 products out the entire range are:

-The facial foam…which I cannot stop using, the scent is amazing.
-The toner, my dark blotches are gone, I don’t have to hide under a concealer anymore!!!!
-The serum just melts in my skin and nourishes my skin all day and beyond.

Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish

Colourful Mani…

When I decided to grow my natural nails I knew there would be a challenge of keeping them in fabulous shape because I decided to go the DIY route (nail filing, buffing, nail polish, avoid chipping and breaking etc). I got all the necessary tools and went searching for a low maintenance nail polish range that would be good quality and affordable.
I came across the essence range and decided to try it out, the range comes in colourful and fun shades…
The colour explosion! The huge Colour & Go range has the beloved gel-shine finish with a highly intensive shine and an extremely short drying time for perfectly polished nails in a flash! The patented quick & easy brush is particularly flat for an even easier application. The 8ml bottle has a cool essence design – with the usual colour-coded cap in the corresponding nail polish colour.

My eyes were drawn to the Essence Colour & Go Colour Of The Year (174 Purple Sugar) below…
Most don’t require top coat to stay glossy, very easy to apply, quick drying time and wait for it…they are very cheap!!! I bought one bottle for R24.99 at Clicks…go get one and give your nails a make-over they deserve, and voila!!! No top coat needed!!!

Justine Tissue Oil Gold

Gold In A Bottle…

I have been using Justine for more than 15 years and their product range has never failed me.

I love the Justine Tissue Oil Gold for the amazing effect it has on my skin…I have a dry skin and I apply it on my skin after a bath or shower. I especially like using it on my face after my bath at night. My skin immediately absorbs it and gives it a chance to breathe while I sleep…no make-up to interrupt the process.

I love the scent, the easy-to-use pump equals less spills.

Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

Something Blue…

Let me start with the packaging. The silver box and the turquoise bottle is so elegant that it could easily be mistaken for a perfume bottle.

My ritual is to wash my face with a cleanser + facial cleansing brush, then I pat my face dry with a damp face cloth. The minute I squirted the fluid onto the back of my palm, I was blown away by the nice scent. I don’t usually use perfumed serums/moisturizers because of my eye allergies, but the fluid did not leave me with teary eyes, a plus in my books. The fluid immediately penetrated the skin quickly and nourished the skin. My skin was immediately silky smooth and not oily at all.

The fluid is very light, non-greasy and leaves the skin smooth and nourished! After a weeks my skin tone was greatly improved!!!

The fluid is a bit pricey but worth a buy…I give it a 10/10 rating!
