The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil

What spot??

I was ever so delighted when Beauty SA chose me to review a product. As you can tell it’s an oil-based serum. Unfortunately it came with no instructions, so I squeezed the lid of the bottle, only to fill the entire cylinder with oil. Too Oily, because I had to take a towel and literally wipe my face and hands. There after I ensured myself I would use the serum every night. In my before picture, there is a brown spot… After 5 weeks of using this product, this spot has lightened and taken a slight change in shape. I’m hoping (fingers crossing) that this spot disappears.

The product smells very nice, it has a florally-sweet smell. This bottle of serum opens very easily, with the lid of the bottle being the pump of the syringe used for the serum. Its packaged in a pretty pink little bottle, about 10cm in height, 28ml. The first week I thought this product was definitely not for me, as I felt it was too oily for my skin. I naturally (or since my late 20’s) have developed sensitive and dry skin. This product keeps my face moist (Obviously because its oil-based) and hasn’t caused any sort of irritation.

I was glad to use this product as I have a few pictures I took to see the difference. I can honestly say, that after 5 weeks of weekly pictures (and reminders to take them) I can see the difference. I would definitely recommend this product as its affordable and its works for MY concerned areas

The Body Shop Bold Oversized Felt Eyeliner

Cat eye

I recieved this as a gift from my aunt, as she struggles with liquid liners (lucky me)
I like that the ‘thicker’ pencil is much easier to grib.
I like that the point of the pen is soft to the touch of the skin, and it will probably once it empties go a bit lighter. I like that its much easier to make a ‘cat-eye’ There is not much need for me to ‘pull’ my eye, the thicker tip helps me by just a slight tilt :-)

Very impressed with this product.
I am yet to check the retail price.


A make-up bag MUST

First of all let me start by saying how much I love Clarins as a brand. The quality and effectiveness of ALL their products is fantastic!

This Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base is simply gorgeous as it illuminates my skin to perfection. It also works best for me in winter because my skin is not nearly as radiant as it usually is in summer.

I sometimes wear it alone for a complete natural, glowy look in the day and at night i’ll wear it with a little bit of foundation and it really radiates my skin.

It is rather pricey- it goes for R310 but if you want beautiful, glowing and radiant skin (especially in winter!!!)then this is product is priceless!

Clinique Happy Eau de Parfum Spray

Summer Happiness :-)

A hint of citrus. A wealth of flowers. A mix of emotions. Clinique’s best-selling women’s fragrance interplays fresh, vibrant notes—ruby red grapefruit, bergamot—with soft, sensual ones—Hawaiian wedding flower, spring mimosa. Wear it and be happy.
The fresh fruit smell reminds me of summer days. Applying the perfume between my arms, behind my knees stays on the entire day. With my gift set I received a candle as well which makes my room smell just as lovely. I find that its not too expensive and because I use it only in summer, it lasts about 6 months.


Chubbylicious – Bountiful Blush

Where to Buy:

I bought mine at Truworths, but I am sure you can buy it wherever you can find Clinique products.

I love how the color just tints my lips especially because I am a fan of going the more natural look!

I love that it has a bit of a glossy look to it.

Chubby sticks are what I call beauty-on-the-go. Effortless application giving oisture and colour tint at twist of a wrist.

Hydrating Cleansing Gel_200ml

Natural Cleaning

I recently purchased the editors box from rubybox, and received a sample of this product. Its an all natural Essential Oils Cleanser ment to be used the morning and evening.

It has a strong scent since it contains marula, aloe vera. I have been using it during the evening only since I don’t like the scent for the morning. It does make my face feel refreshed (aloe vera) and it left my skin feeling super soft and not dry unlike other cleansers. I like that’s its 100% natural. The only issue is the strong scent. If you want to splurge on this product bare in mind the strong scents of aloe vera, marula, african potato and rooibos. But me personally will definately be repurchasing since it really does wonders on my skin.
