Gold Status




Rosy cheeks

I adore physicians formula’s packaging. The have the best in the industry so far. The shades were too light for my dark skin. However, the bronzy tone is fantastic for the highlighting the inner duct. I am definitely trying out the bronzer to get that ‘glow up’ glow.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Scrub

Can’t fault it

It is a great cleanser for oily skin. It smells great and does give you visible clear texture and feel. Skin does not feel dry after wash.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil

Glow at night

I love how supple and even toned my skin has turned after using this oil serum every night for 2 weeks. I totally recommend it.

Now I get the hype…

Cantu is revered as the OG of products for natural hair and for years, South African naturals were waiting to experience this brand for ourselves instead of coveting on Youtube and Instagram.

With that said, my excitement to try these products was welcomed, as I had already purchased their shampoo and leave-in conditioners once they hit the stores. Adding to my collection, the treatment duo did not fail me. Firstly, the daily moisturiser left my hair shiny, silky and soft – especially after a blowout. This product is packed with water, so it helps to soften and add moisture to my rebelliously dry African hair. Secondly, the strengthening treatment did what is promised. It smells amazing and left my hair with a natural sheen. I love it’s consistency because it did not leave any residue. However, I didn’t like that my hair appeared frizzy after a while, a common dilemma for my hair texture. Both products are great for everyday use and are a great addition to a winning natural hair regimen. I endorse this hair company!!!

Make a statement!

I love eye-looks. The advent of Instagram ‘baddie’ makeup has made me appreciate a bold eye look. I was sent this creamy eyeshadow (Shade 300) from this fresh-for-SA international cosmetics brand. This brand is known for simplistic packaging (which I love) and vibrant and pigmented formulas. This pink metallic finish cream eyeshadow is packed with gold shimmer (yay!). It has a mousse-like consistency which dries very quickly to a matte and glittery finish. You can build it up for a bold look, or use a little to accentuate your eyes. It works as a lippie too. I am looking forward to purchasing a gold pigment. I recommend this brand to make-up lovers and beginners – you are sure to pick up something you love.

Combo deal for eyes? Yes!!!

This innovative offer from Physicians Formula makes me envious of make-up beginners because I wish this was available when I started. I was sent the ‘brown eyes’ combo, and I enjoyed creating different looks with these liners. You can use one or three to create a winning eye look, to accentuate your eye colour. It has a long-wearing formula – specially for the bottom eyelid area.
