Today, local skincare brand Skin Functional in collaboration with skinfluencer Dudu Kgoebane, announces its enthusing Limited-Edition Skincare Box!
What can you expect to find in this box? Four of the most popular products from the expansive range, which have been handed-picked by Dudu herself, personally packaged with a very special surprise gift inside each box, available on the Skin Functional website from today until 15 March 2021.
Dudu Kgoebane “Dudu K” as she is better known on social media, describes herself as a health and wellness
enthusiast who adopts a holistic approach to taking care of herself inside and out. Passionate about skincare, Dudu
has been a longtime customer of the brand, and continues to place her faith and trust in its products. She says,
“Effective ingredients, noticeable results and affordability is what makes Skin Functional stand out from the rest.”
The objective for both Skin Functional and Dudu K with this collaboration is to provide a starter kit that (1) helps
beginners get started on their skincare journey; (2) provides serum education and encourage incorporation into
skincare regimes across the board and; (3) provide products that have key ingredients to help with common skin
ailments assisting in clearer, healthier looking skin.
Want glowing skin like Dudu? She revealed some of her secrets:
What is your current skincare routine?
I cleanse my face, neck and décolletage with a gel-based cleanser and I would usually use an oil-based cleanser prior to my gel-based cleanser in the evening to double cleanse my skin, especially on days when I have a full face of make-up on. The oil cleanser just helps to melt off the make-up effortlessly. I would then use a chemical exfoliator twice a week, to help remove and breakdown any dead skin cells. I prefer using an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) exfoliator,
because it’s gentle and effective. My next step is a hydrating serum, which just helps to replenish, hydrate and plump up my skin. All skin types need hydration and I have found that incorporating a hydrating serum into my skincare routine helps me to get optimum hydration for my skin. I would then go in with my serum for dark marks to help with my uneven skin tone and dark marks left behind from breakouts that I may have experienced. Next is applying my moisturiser, which I use in my AM and PM skincare routine. The final step in my AM skincare routine would be my sunscreen, which I apply every day, come rain or sunshine.
Favourite Skin Functional products?
The Hydration Juice is the perfect serum to help incorporate hydration into your skincare routine and it’s suitable for all skin types. I also absolutely love the Dark Mark Management Serum with 2% Alpha Arbutin which helps to remove existing dark marks and further new dark marks from forming. Another is the Exfoliating Facial with 10% Lactic acid which is an AHA, this is a lovely, gentle chemical exfoliator especially for people who are beginners at using chemical exfoliators. It’s quite effective and should be used once a week in the evening. The recently launched Liquid Moisturiser is also on my favourites list, because it’s a light-weight moisturiser that can be used during the hot summer days, it seeps into your skin so effortlessly and it’s non-greasy.
What are you doing differently for the change from summer to autumn?
Swapping out my cleanser for a milky cleanser (which is non-foaming). Changing to a thicker and more moisturising day cream. I continue with my sunscreen, but I’d usually swap my spray or light-weight sunscreen for a cream sunscreen. I would recommend incorporating a hydrating overnight mask twice a week.
Tips in using serums that work best for you?
-Never let the dropper of your serum touch your face or the palm. For hygiene purposes and to avoid contaminating your entire serum.
-Always apply your water-based serums first and your oil-based serums last.
-Wait a few minutes in between your serums application to allow your serums to settle into your skin.
– You don’t have to use multiple serums on your face at the same time. For example, if you have combination skin (oily T-Zone and the rest of your skin is dry/normal), you can apply an oil controlling serum on your T-Zone only and a hydrating serum on the rest of your face.
– Do your research, especially when it comes to applying active ingredients, just so you know which active ingredients work together and which ones don’t. The Skin Functional website is quite educational and informative in this regard.
– Always seal in your serums with a good moisturiser.

This would be a great gift to my new journey I’ve started this year. Been suffering with acne for the longest time, decided to do something about it this and went to a dermatologist,so I’m in that process of gaining my confidence back before my wedding day. This giveaway would be a great addition to my new found happiness and glow.
I would really love to win as I am a skin enthusiast and would like to have beautiful skin!
This box would help so much with my after chemo skin effects – I’ve found my skin is super dry or super oily and a lot more prone to breakouts . It will help improve my confidence and allow me to embrace the natural face again .
It would also help me get back into focusing on a healthy appearance to improve my confidence and boost my inner love for myself again
This box would legit be a huge help to me being on a student budget 2, struggled with hormonal acne for as long as I can remember, all I’m left with is dark marks, I get occasional break outs.
I need this box I’m struggling with my acne for years.
Having endometriosis so I have hormonal acne..
I tried niacinamide and vit a starting to see the difference.
If I could win this box, it would be best gifts of all time. I am currently experiencing major break outs on my skin and I had bought the 5ml bottles of Vit A(Retinol) and Dark Mark Management about a week ago and I am running out, so sad because I am already seeing improvements in my skin texture.
I need this, my husband has started using all my Skin Functional products up
Besides this being a pre birthday gift,God knows how useful the skincare box would be to me at the moment because I feel like my skin is giving up on me and this is taking away the little confidence I have left, Fingers crossed.
