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

We are no doubt in winter, it’s sunny, hot, the beaches are overcrowded and there have already been a few fire outbreaks. No matter the season, looking good is important to me. This summer, I have compiled a list of my January beauty essentials: Clicks Sun Protect Cooling SPF 30, R104,95 No matter the colour of your skin, even if your melanin pops the most, sunblock is, and should be an important part of your skincare, especially in summer. We all know sunscreen is expensive, the Clicks Sun Protect Cooling

They say your hair is your crowning glory, this I know to be true. It is why issues like receding hairline and thinning hair can be distressing and even depressing for many women. Receding hairline is not as common in women as it is in men but traction alopecia is. What is traction alopecia? It is damage to the hair caused by excessive pulling on the natural hair follicle. Ballerinas, gymnasts and weave wearers are some of the women that suffer from this condition. In my early twenties, I used

Over the past few months, beauty has become a little obsession of mine.  I am constantly on the hunt for the best beauty products out there. I have always had a love for all things beauty related but the fact that I’ll soon be turning 30 years old has got me a little spooked and concerned for the future of my skin. While I may not be able to turn back the hands of time and stay in my twenties forever, I can at least try to reduce the signs of

South Africa’s leading health and beauty retailer Clicks gears up for another scent filled season in the fourth annual Clicks Fragrance Awards. Clicks stocks a wide range of fragrances at affordable prices making it your feel good, one stop fragrance destination. With such an extensive variety, it is only fitting that the process to narrow down the selection was just as intense. The first step involved the experienced fragrance buying team first making their selection before handing the judging over to our carefully selected media and influencers. Clicks designated an

I’ve been wearing make-up since I was 13 years old but didn’t know much about primers until a few years ago. However, I am no expert. I got curious about primers because I like to know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. If something is supposed to help enhance your look, you better believe I know about it. I may not do everything I hear about but I am “in the know” ;). Primers are quite frankly a must if you work over nine hours a day and

The Kiss

I’d heard about Lush from other bloggers on Instagram but not one to give in to hypes, I  only popped in store for the first time EVER this week – just in time for Valentine’s Day. I am what one can term a lover of all things womanly. If it makes you look or smell good, I’ll buy it! So you can imagine how I felt when I walked into Lush at The Waterfront this Wednesday. Kid at a candy store is an understatement in describing how I felt, perhaps Alice in

I went in to Dischem a few weeks ago to buy some toiletries when my ever wondering eye rested on the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss. Having only ever used their concealer, I was hesitant to splurge and decided on only three of their pigment gloss; Stunner, Bazaar and Instinct. I love colour so I tend to gravitate towards brightly coloured lippies and even though Stunner and Instinct are colours I already own in Mac Heroine and Chilli, I still chose to buy the glosses. The first colour

Lashes have the ability to transform your face. You may wear foundation, concealer, blush, lipstick, draw on your brows or even contour but in my opinion, your face is never really made up until you’ve applied mascara or false lashes. They say the eyes are the window to your soul and so it is important to pay attention to that area whenever you apply make-up. I love the drama and alluring look false lashes give your face. You needn’t worry about much else with the right lashes. When I need a
