I swear by Hannon Gentle Facial Wash. The gel removes grime and make-up effortlessly, without leaving a greasy film or drying skin out. The product also prevents breakouts and banishes blemishes. Hannon Gentle Facial Wash leaves skin squeaky clean, smooth, supple and free of acne as well as blemishes. The wash is suitable for all skin types. The product retails for approximately R 270 for 150 ml but a little goes a very long way and the beautiful skin results make it worth every cent! – Arlene Beukes
Garnier 3-in-1 Anti-blackheads Charcoal Musk Scrub Wash has done magic on my skin. Within a week I was able to see a change in my face. Pimples started minimising, pores started unclogging, blackheads started vanishing. Today I am on my fourth week of using it and I am completely happy with the product. My face is completely free, fresh and young. No more horrible pimples… no blackheads. I swear it is magic in my hand. – Khethiwe Dladla
I swear by Cetaphil Daily Cleanser. I’ve been using it for years after my dermatologist recommended it and I’ve never looked back. I’ve realised that all the pretty smelling toners and facial washers are not good for my skin type. I’ve now also added the Cetaphil day long sunblock for face and body into my daily skin routine. – Rachel Ward
I use the Rooibos Antioxidants brand from Clicks… it works perfectly. I’m struggling with a very sensitive skin and it’s very soft and gentle on the skin and works 100%. I recommend it to everyone! – Jenni Van Dyk
I swear by Palmer’s products for my body and face. – Kelly Jennings
B.O.N Natural oils are fantastic… I have been using this for months and my skin looks and feels amazing. It gives my skin a younger, more radiant look and I’m 100% happy with this fantastic product. – Diane Pather
I Love B.O.N Natural Oils and SPF Cream it is very soft and gentle on my skin. I love beauty products and looking after my skin – Erinda Esterhuizen
I love essence matt matt matt lipgloss. This is the only matte lipstick I will be wearing from now on. It doesn’t dry out my lips, doesn’t bleed, actually lasts and if it wears off my lips I still have a tint. Absolutely love it! – Sonell
The MAC Pro Longwear Foundation is the best. During my teen years, I had flawless skin. However, all those years of eating junk food and neglecting my skin have led to adult acne. It has increased over the years and it becomes very difficult for me to deal with as I am not used to seeing my face with all these scars, but I have found the best cover up. I live by this. I generally use a small squirt of the foundation and it instantly covers up my marks. I also have a birthmark on my face and the foundation does the trick. I simply apply a small amount to my entire face and add a translucent powder over. I have tried other foundations like Revlon, Clinique, Kryolan and even other MAC concealers but the Pro Longwear foundation does the trick for me. I simply love it. It is smooth and easy to apply as I prefer to apply my make-up with my fingers. It is non-greasy and doesn’t leave any streaks. It’s amazing and blends perfectly onto the skin. – Pixie
