Are dark underarms getting you down? Same. I’ve had dark underarms my whole life but it’s not really bothered me until recently. As a style and beauty blogger, I’m often filming, shooting different looks and I find myself feeling self-conscious when my arms are raised. With pictures, I can always use Photoshop to lighten my underarms, but with videos, there’s no covering it up. My underarms – which as a result of the dark tone – resembles a hairy armpit and is visible for all to see whenever my arms

I’m new to the Kiehl’s brand. I mean, I’ve heard of Kiehl’s, I’ve just never used their products. What I heard has been all good, so much so that I was influenced to buy some of their products a couple of weeks ago. But that is a post for another day. Today is about the new addition to the Kiehl’s Calendula range,  the serum-infused water cream. What’s that about you ask? Allow me to introduce you… KIEHL’S INNOVATES WITH HERITAGE INGREDIENT, CALENDULA, IN NEW SERUM-INFUSED WATER CREAM Kiehl’s introduced its

Dove is a personal care brand owned by Unilever and has been around for over 6 decades. I grew up with my mum using Dove. It’s a classic. Dove has had its fair share of controversy, as a matter of fact, I stopped using Dove products a few years ago, 2017 because of its racially insensitive ads.  But, as a believer in second chances, I have decided to give the brand another chance, let love in, I mean, Dove. Let Dove in. Dove’s recent campaign on #RealBeauty was intended to break

Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask  Ever heard of a self-heating mask? A mask that purifies your pores in just 1 minute? The Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask is said to do just that and more. I put this claim to the test, keep on reading for my honest review. But first… Skincare Maintaining a great skincare routine has become an obsession of mine. To be perfectly frank, I don’t have the time nor the budget to frequent the spa as I once used to and so I make

About a week ago, I was sent the Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips to review. Typically, pore strips isn’t part of my skincare routine. I have tried using a different brand of pore strips in the past and it was a fail. The strip did not stick to my nose properly and so it didn’t work. That was it for me, I had a couple more strips in the box that I didn’t bother trying again after that first failed attempt but for some reason, I signed up to

Just before I turned 30 years old, I made the decision to invest in good skincare. My main skin concern is ageing, I want to stop the signs of ageing in its tracks and remain beautiful and youthful forever. There are certain skincare ingredients that are known to reduce the signs of ageing, one of which is Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s).  Read my list of other skincare ingredients here. AHA’s work by removing the skin’s top layer (dead skin cells) to promote more radiant and firmer skin. The Environ Focus

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
