We hear the term “iconic” a lot when it comes to beauty products, but what truly makes a product iconic? Is it the fact that beauty editors and experts recommend it? That it’s been around for years? Or maybe that it’s a best-seller? We like to think of iconic products as those that defy time, trends and new innovations. Iconic products are those that, despite new technology, a change in consumer demands and the passage of time, hold strong and continue to be coveted for the results they produce.
With Black Friday around the corner, we’ve compiled a wish list of iconic beauty products that’ll be available at a significant discount:

Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream
The first Dr Hauschka product we ever tried was the Rose Day Cream and to this day, it’s still our favourite.

Shea butter, rose petal wax and avocado oil protect and help retain moisture while marshmallow extracts and St John’s wort soothes redness and calms the skin. It’s suitable for normal, dry and sensitive skin and is great for soothing irritation.

Benzac AC 5 Gel
You may be wondering what a blemish treatment gel is doing on a beauty wish list, but believe us when we say you will be SO pleased we told you about this gem! We’ve tried a lot of “pimple creams” and to be perfectly honest, most of them have let us down. But not this one! Containing 5% benzoyl peroxide, this water-based gel goes to work fast. It has comedolytic and antibacterial properties, as well as hydrating properties to prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Benzac and Benzaderm products are currently on special at Clicks (but three and pay for two!).
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
We were gutted to see Bourjois leave Clicks stores in SA, BUT did you know that local online retailer Le Beauty Club stocks all your favourite Bourjois makeup? We’re big fans of this Bourjois foundation. Its vitamin-rich formulation has anti-fatigue properties (who doesn’t need that these days??!!) as well as radiance-boosting abilities to help you get that enviable “glow from within.” It offers lightweight coverage that doesn’t look thick or cakey on the skin but still offers enough coverage to hide imperfections. Get your favourite Bourjois foundation on sale on Monday 25 November between 1pm and 2pm, when Le Beauty Club will be offering 60% off any Bourjois foundation.
Clarins Double Serum
When this serum just launched we had a feeling that Clarins were on to something big, and turns out we were right! Enriched with 21 active plant extracts, it also includes the star ingredient turmeric, which is known for its anti-ageing properties. This concentrate helps work on the five vital functions of the skin for a more youthful and radiant complexion. It has a lovely texture, absorbs easily and best of all, smooths fine lines and wrinkles.

Bioderma Photoderm sunscreens
Bioderma’s range of Photoderm sunscreens have been a long-time favourite. The range has a solution for all skin types: from tinted options, to options suitable for acne-prone skins, to options specifically developed for skin prone to hyperpigmentation. Bioderma is committed to skin health by offering the best UVA/UVB balance on the market with innovative textures. None of the formulas are thick or greasy and they don’t leave a shiny residue on the skin either.
