Can you believe we’ve already hit the start of October?! This past month we kept an eye out for all things new and exciting for spring. These are the products we can’t get enough of:
Tangle Teezer Original Marble (R260 – Clicks)
Is there anyone that doesn’t love a Tangle Teezer? We think not. This nifty tool has been around for quite some time and is deservedly popular due to it’s amazing detangling abilities. Goodbye, painful knots! We love the newly-launched marble design – it’s clean and classy and the soft pastel hues make it the perfect spring purchase.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Fig Eau de Toilette Spray (R445.00 – 100ml – selected department stores)
A new addition to the Green Tea family, this fresh fragrance will transport you to the rustic countryside. Filled with delicious notes of fig, citrus and ivy leaves, the scent is sweet and uplifting. It’s the kind of fragrance you’d choose for a picnic on a warm day. And the packaging? Well that’s gorgeous too. We reckon this is going to be a summer favourite.
African Extracts Rooibos Advantage Misting Toner (R119.99 – Dis-Chem, selected pharmacies)
An exciting new launch from this favourite SA brand, this refreshing mist contains aloe vera to soothe the skin, witch hazel to purify and tighten pores and chamomile to fade dark spots. Plus, let’s not forget their signature ingredient, Bio-Active Rooibos (which is full of antioxidants). We love that this is a multipurpose product – you can spray it after cleansing to tone and refresh the skin, or use it as a makeup setting spray for a perfect finish. You can even mix it with a few drops of their Daily Repair Facial Oil to make your own makeup remover.
Heliocare Color Gelcream SPF 50 (R350.00 – Sorbet stores)
A tinted sunscreen is a summer must-have, and Heliocare is known for having one of the best in the business. This broad-spectrum sunscreen is highly effective in preventing the formation of pigmentation, as well as other visible signs of ageing (already a winner in our books!). It’s suitable for all skin types and is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores and result in nasty breakouts. The formula is lightweight and it spreads effortlessly. Plus, if you’re familiar with Heliocare, you’ll instantly recognise the brand’s signature scent in this cream – it smells like a day on the beach. We love that is gives just enough coverage too.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum (R1495.00 – dermalogica.co.za)
Everyday factors like pollution and environmental triggers can wreak havoc on our skins. Not only do they speed up the ageing process, but they can leave us battling hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity and an uneven skin tone. The latest research shows that vitamin C can actually enhance the skin’s natural defense system, helping it to defend itself from oxidative stress. That’s where Biolumin-C Serum comes in. The highly effective formula delivers the natural power of vitamin C to where it’s needed most, resulting in brighter, firmer skin with a reduction in fine lines. The results? The skin’s defences are enhanced, making it brighter from within. This is a must-have product for a more radiant complexion.
RefectoCil 2-in-1 Double Effect Lash & Brow Booster (R550.00 – takealot.com)
Long gone are the days of pencilled eyebrows – today, bigger is better. And who wouldn’t want longer lashes? The Lash & Brow Booster is a natural alternative to fake lashes and microblading and solves the problem of sparse brows and short lashes. Formulated with natural active ingredients, it prolongs the growth phase in the hair roots while supporting the hair cycle. This means the hairs grow longer before they naturally fall out, leaving you with longer, fuller brows and lashes. It’s suitable to be applied on both the eyebrows and lash lines and doesn’t contain any synthetic hormones or perfumes.
