Yanke Slabbert


Silver Status




A brilliant soft touch of fragrance

I am currently obsessed with the Elizabeth Arden White Tea EDT Spray. I can describe this fragrance as really soft and clean, with subtle hints of flower, but not in an overpowering way. It has a semi-sweet smell that doesn’t irritate my nose whatsoever.

This perfume lasts all day and sometimes I can even still smell it on myself after i bathed! I absolutely love this perfume and I think that it is a really great buy. You definitely get value for your money.

A definite go-to self tanner that every women should own

I don’t self tan often, but when i do i use the Caribbean Tan Tanning Spritzer Instant Tan. I usually by the B medium complexion spritzer, because it gives my skin a natural and subtle brown color which i LOVE.

This spritzer comes with a nice mutton glove that you can use to apply the product easily and efficiently. The application of this product takes a bit of time and i have to ask for help when i ave to apply it to my back. (take note i am not a skilled self-tanner, so if you are then this wouldn’t be a problem)

The self tanner doesn’t have leave the greatest smell when it starts to settle in, but what self tanner does ?

Lastly the only negative thing experience i had with this product is the way it settles into my pores. My pores darken, which leaves it looking like i have blackheads over my chest area and sometimes on my back. This is the only reason i don’t use this product as often, because it takes a while to get my pores clean again after application.

Overall this is a great self tanning product and i will and have recommended this to friends and family before..

Yardley Stayfast Foundation

Great for cover!

I am blessed with quite a lot of freckles, but trying to cover up these freckles is definitely not a blessing! Especially if you are working with a budget of R200…I have tried and tested almost every product on the market in this price range and have found that Yardley Stayfast foundation is definitely the best and most affordable full cover foundation!

What i like about this product:
1) It has a really creamy consistency, which works great with my desert dry skin.It doesn’t leave my skin feeling or looking flakey at all.
2) It offers great coverage
3) It is very affordable
4) It lasts me up to two months (which is really long for me!)

What i don’t like about this product:
1) It has an extremely thick consistency (which I personally like) but most of my smoother skinned friends dislike. It can easily give you a cakey makeup look.
2) If you have oily skin i won’t recommend this product. It works amazing with dry skin, but can leave your skin looking a bit oily if it oxidizes. (nothing powder can’t fix tho!)

Overall this is a great product for women with dry skin, women that like full coverage and women who work within a budget.

LA Girl Gel Liner Kit

A life changing product!

I have been using LA Girl’s eyeliner for almost three years now and i am yet to find an eyeliner that works as great for as this one..

I love this gel eyeliner, because it is affordable, it doesn’t smudge at all, it’s really easy to apply, it comes with a really good quality eyeliner brush and it lasts for ages!! (i literally still use my gel pot that i bought over a year ago)…

It applies really smoothly and doesn’t smudge or crack or cause hard eyeliner flakes to fall into your eyes like most liquid eyeliners do. It’s also really light on your eyelids so it doesn’t leave your eyes feeling heavy or irritated.

I definitely recommend this products and for everyone who hasn’t used gel eyeliner before, do yourself a favor and try it! It is a life changer!!!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original

A definite buy for every single hairtype

I live an active lifestyle and go to the gym more than six times a week. I literally can’t live without dry shampoo, more specifically Batiste dry shampoo… it keeps my hair refreshed and looking clean in between washes. It also helps to add a bit of volume to oily hair. This product is really affordable and i would say you get more than what you pay for , which is absolutely a good thing! I used more expensive products on the market, but nothing works quite as well as Batiste Dry shampoo.

The only negative this i have to say about this product is that i go through a whole bottle every month, because i have to use a lot of product at a time…

BUT i use it every single day, it might last longer for less active people or people with less oily hair than mine..

But overall a really great product and it leaves your hair smelling amazing!
