No need for brushes and sponges with this easy-to-use blush stick. Keep it in your handbag for an instant boost of colour. Its powdery finish creates a natural look, simply apply and blend with your fingertips. This is a handbag essential and a product I always have close at hand as I love the lovely peach colour for a natural blush!



african extracts wipes


African Extracts Rooibos Skincare wipes (R40)

These fuss-free facial wipes remove everyday dirt and impurities in a flash! Non-greasy & non-drying the formula contains a rich in anti-oxidants Rooibos extract to soothe your skin and cleanse it on the go!



baby lips


Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm Electro in Strike a Rose (R30)
I love Baby Lips lip balms and although I haven’t tried their Electro range I think this would be a lot of fun… no more basic, boring lip balm… this one delivers 8 hours of hydration with a neon kick. The electric colour pigments in Maybelline’s exclusive formula protects and moisturises and your lips will be renewed in one week.



Skincare Spoils

These three are products I turn to daily to save my skin!


Ordinary Daily Moisturiser 50ml (R275)

This hydrating moisturiser is intended for daily application. The formula contains hypoallergenic and natural antioxidants; grapeseed oil, green rooibos, Co Enzyme Q10, olive oil and shea butter. These ingredients hydrates, soothes, smoothes and protects the skin.



decleor bb creamHydra Floral Multi-protection BB Cream SPF 15 Light 40ml (R370)

Decleor Laboratories have combined the effectiveness of a 24-hour multi-protective moisturiser with the benefits of a foundation for a natural ‘flawless skin’. This light and ultra-fresh cream refines the skin with five benefits in one: – Moisturises for 24 hours – Illuminates and evens out the complexion – Refines the skin texture and corrects blemishes- Protects against UVA/UVB rays (SPF15) – Protects against urban pollution. I love this BB cream and it leaves my skin feeling perfectly hydrated and fresh all day with a flawless, luminous complexion.


konjac spongeKonjac 100% Natural Pure Vegetable Facial Sponge (R140)

Ideal for the entire family, Konjac’s bestselling 100% pure Konjac sponge deeply cleanses, removes blackheads and gently exfoliates the skin. The unique net like structure of the vegetable fibres helps to stimulate blood flow and promote skin cell renewal. It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and to use you just add water for the ultimate in natural skin care or your own facial cleanser.



Summer Essentials

Summer is such a fun season for beauty and what better way to express your sunny side than with a few pretty peachy pops of colour and some lovely long lashes??

essie peach daiquri
Essie Peach Daiquri Nail Polish (R100)

I’m a huge fan of this nail polish range and their gorgeous range of colours. For summer I think this pretty peach would be perfect for a mani or pedi as it’s both sweet AND powerful. And at only R100 each the price is too good to miss!



loreal lipgloss

L’ORÉAL Color Riche Extraordinaire 102 Rose Finale (R135)

This is my current favourite lip product. It has a lovely smooth, non-sticky texture – a mix between a lipstick and a lipgloss. It features luxurious micro-oils that infuse each pigment for ultimate colour and care. The unique soft-touch applicator allows for a silky-smooth, gliding application and this is a such a stunning colour for summer!



maybelline illegal lengths

Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara Very Black (R90)

I’m always on the hunt for a lengthening mascara and this one promises to build 4mm of measurable extensions!! Boasting a breakthrough formula and Fiber-Fix brush, I’m super keen to put it to the test! Summer beauty is all about fast fixes and if you only have time for ONE makeup product make it mascara – preferably this one!




Stila Stunners

I’m a huge fan of this beauty brand and definitely don’t own enough of these lovely products…. and I’m seriously coveting this eye shadow palette after reading rave reviews about it. One for the Christmas list me thinks!!

stila lillium

Stila Convertible Cheek Colour in Lillium (R260)

Stila’s ingenious lipstick and blush-in-one is simply irresistible. This versatile favourite brightens cheeks and lips with creamy, translucent colour. Tap onto cheeks and press onto lips, the sheer tint adds an inherent pink glow to the cheeks while lips bloom with fresh, radiant colour. It is a must-have in every girl’s make-up kit.
