Beauty Products

Hi Dolls,
I've been doing quite a lot of Beauty posts lately! I’m a complete girly girl, so beauty is a basic part of our routine and the way we function daily. Think about it, we at least spend an hour in the morning to prepare before leaving for work, if not longer. We constantly touch up our lipstick, lip-gloss or our hair, depending on the weather…
I have a standing portable mirror on my desk at work and often glance into it just to check…. Wink*
It just shows without realizing it, we love feeling and looking our best!
OK! I’m swaying off the point!

I've once again found some great beauty product that is rather inexpensive and works just aswell...
The Mascara was the one thing that I am in-love with, It gives your lashes the perfect amount of depth that I wanted. I would put on two coats and my eyes would immediately pop!
These products can be found at Foschini Stores
Have you found any inexpensive good, quality products lately?
I would love to hear from you.

My 1st Beauty Favourites Youtube Video

I am really excited/scared to let you all in on something I've been working on. I have just loaded my first Youtube video!

I know with doing a Youtube videos comes a lot of criticisms’ and negative feedback/comments but it’s really something that I wanted to do and I have prepared myself whether good or not so good. I have literally waited over a year to post a video as I usually chicken out just before loading it. I believe that practice makes perfect and everything good is worth trying!

I have been doing blog posts since 2011 and I really thought this would be a great time to try new things and show you guys a side of me that you don’t get to see. I know my loyal readers would enjoy it and I Thank You so much for all your support thus far!

Let me know what you guys thought of my video on the link below and I’ll hopefully be able to show my face in public again he he he

Love you all, and never stop trying new things!

G-Star Women’s Event

Denim, we all love them, and yes our entire wardrobe is filled with them. Denim is so versatile and easy to wear, that attending the G-Star Raw Women’s Event was definitely on my to do list xx

I had so much fun at this event from the start of being served Champers, to the most decadent Chocolate table display. Should I continue, Uhmm yes the Denim…
There is no doubt in my mind that G-Star knows their stuff! The denims has a great fit, styling and the washes on display is a must have.  If you’re looking for good quality pair denims, you are at the right place!

All in all, it was Great Night!

Juliette Armand's - COLOR CONTROL CREAM

So about a couple of months ago, I received this Juliette Armand's - COLOR CONTROL CREAM to try out and review. I must say it took me a while to write this post as I really wanted to have used the product for a while before posting it.
I have had zero reactions or problems with my skin when using this product.  
I must say that I was in complete luck, when I received this product as it was my exact colour shade and really blended in nicely. Some of the other bloggers did however mentioned that it was either a tad to light or dark for them. But it really suited my skins complexion.
I usually wear this product when i'm in a rush, I would apply it like a face lotion and then apply my translucent powder over it, just to set & so that you don't end up looking like a shine ball.
The consistency is not thick and not too runny, a perfect in-between combo.

Kiehl’s Arrives on Cape Town Shores

Good News for those of us living in Cape Town, the Kiehl’s store has opened up on our shores in Edgars Canal Walk. I have been hearing loads of rave reviews about their products and considering that they started out in 1851 it is clearly an indication that this product has stood the test of time.

I received some Kiehl’s products on Monday to try out and I thought that I wanted to use the products for at least 1 week before I let you guys know what I think… I have never had a regular schedule regarding the skin care products that I used as I generally would use different branded products for different uses.

Firstly I tried the Kiehl’s Facial Wash, and I have never had a wash that created such a nice foam effect. It was gentle on my skin and after using it my face felt really clean and fresh. I used the Toner and then applied the Facial Moisturizer and all I can say is Wow… My face felt so supple and soft afterwards I really could see myself sticking to these products. I ended up using these products for a week and even my colleagues at work noticed a difference in my skin. I believe this was the product that my skin has been waiting for as I rarely stuck to any skin care program. My skin feels soft and firm and there is definitely some miracle potion in that facial cream as it just gives your face that lift it needs. May I add it smells amazing! I will continue to use it until the bottle or tubes are finished so that I can let you ladies know what my final verdict is.
At this stage I am so excited to find a product that’s results I could actually see and feel.

I also washed my hair using the Kiehl’s Shampoo and it had left my hair feeling so soft. I’ll have to try this product with a few more washes but it definitely was a pleasant washing experience for me. The Conditioner felt really good in my hair and I kept it on for a while before washing it off. My hair is generally quite fine, but it looks really healthy and has good body.

The Kiehl’s lip balm I have been carrying it to work with me, and I applied it when I was busy applying my make up, it doesn't give any colour just a really great moisturizing base. I loved it as I applied it to my lips and would wait for some of the moisture to be absorbed onto my lips and then on top of it I would apply my lipstick of choice. It really has become a routine now and I love how supple and cared for my lips feel. This is an absolute winner ladies!

I haven’t used the 2 above products at all yet, so I cannot tell you my thoughts on it. But I’ll definitely try the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate soon and let you all know what my thoughts are.
I just find that the entire Kiehl’s Range is really Well Balanced as it appeals to all age categories and literally has a product for all your skin concerns. I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of skin care that these products supply and its quiet clear that Kiehl’s knows what they are doing…

I am without a doubt trilled that Kiehl’s is now available at Canal Walk in Edgars so that I can now go and stock up on my monthly must have products.

Have you tried out any Kiehl’s products and if so what is your favourite, mine has to be the Kiehl’s face wash and Lip balm. Let me know yours?
