I was one of the few lucky people that got to test and review the Botanic Cleansing Conditioner (Moisture & Replenish) by Tresemme. The co-washing cleansing conditioner is a new product on the South African market. Sure, I’ve heard of co-washing – a method of washing your hair where you replace shampoo with conditioner – but  I’d never really thought  I’d be testing it on my hair! Will my hair be clean using conditioner alone? Will my hair fall out? These were some of the questions that plagued me. I

Three weeks ago, Rubybox sent me Thursday Plantation’s acne range to test and review. The range includes: Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash R209.95 at Wellnesswarehouse 2. Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Toner – R205.95 at Wellnesswarehouse 3. Tea Tree Face Cream – R215. 95 at Wellnesswarehouse For targeted application Tea Tree Blemish Stick Tea Tree Blemish Gel I’d never heard of Thursday Plantation so before I used the products I thought I’d do a little research and find out a little bit more about the brand whose products I was going to be

Just a month ago, I started using the Justine Dailycare Perfecting range. I was invited to test and review this 3-step range by Rubybox Beauty South Africa for Justine South Africa. The Justine Dailycare Perfecting range consists of three essential products in any skincare arsenal, namely, cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I had just a few months prior come to the conclusion that I needed to upgrade my skincare regime and by an upgrade, I mean – splurge. I had this idea that the more expensive a product is, the more

A soft glam makeup look is different from a ‘glam’  or an ‘everyday’ makeup look. The smokey eye look is so 1999, the most replicated makeup look in the beauty world is the soft glam look.   This makeup look can be worn on a normal day, runnings errands, out with friends or even to a wedding.  While a glam look is strictly for special occasions and an everyday makeup look would be subtle enough to wear to work. I am by no means a makeup expert but I’m that girl

Good skin care has become an important part of my daily routine these days. I think it has something to do with getting older. After the age of 25, there are certain skincare ingredients that should be included on your cosmetics list. Because the older you get, the more obsessed you become with looking young and these products help to ward off the signs of ageing. God forbid I start to get wrinkles. I want youthful, supple skin for life – who doesn’t? I don’t have the perfect skin but

Did you know that Softsheen and Redken developed the original Mizani brand? And in 2001, after existing as part of the Soft-Sheen Carson group in Chicago for over a decade, Mizani evolved into the L’Óreal Professional Products Division. I’ve known about Mizani for years but up until recently, I didn’t know it was made specifically for textured hair or that it is under the L’Óreal brand. My first time using Mizani was the middle of last year while I was in Nigeria. The stylist at the salon I frequented recommended the product

Raise your hands if you’ve got oily skin concerns. It’s not a competition but I bet my skin is oilier than yours. I’ve yet to meet anyone other than my mum who’s face produces as much oil as mine. I loathe it and even though they tell you that oily skin is less prone to wrinkles which means you look 20 at 40 years of age, I still don’t care for it. What causes oily skin? There are many factors that contribute to the production of oil on your skin.

Those who know me well know that I’m a feminist. I’m not a radical feminist, my views on feminism are liberal – what I stand for is equality and justice for all. I guess that in theory makes me both feminist and egalitarian. As a woman, I believe that we are capable of doing what a man can do and should therefore not be discriminated against because of gender. Society teaches us that certain jobs are for women while others are for men. But society is wrong. And we must

Say goodbye to ombre lips, two-toned lips are the latest and hottest beauty trend. I first spotted this trend on Instagram and it immediately grabbed my attention. The lips, not unlike the eyes are the focal point of your face. I’m that girl who aims to buy the brightest, boldest and most unique lip colour at the shop. Anything from purple, blue, pink or black, I’ve got. So, the two-toned lips trend instantly became a ‘ must try’  for me. The two-tone lips trend involves using two different shade/colour of

Affordable skin care products that work is not a myth. You can enjoy great skin using products that won’t break the bank. About two and a half years ago, I started to experience severe breakouts on my face. These breakouts, I realised were caused by my diet, too much sugar in the form of chocolates, ice-cream and biscuits. Not wanting to cut these things from my diet, I realised I needed to up my skincare game and so, I did. I started by first going back on the contraceptive pill
