Today I’m coming to you with ALL my current loves & favourites. This post is going to be beauty & lifestyle related. I have not done one of these posts/ videos in a while and so I thought today is the day! 🙂
While writing this post I am watching the Springboks vs New Zealand Rugby game, which I had to add in because South African rugby is definitely one of my FAVOURITES THINGS EVER!! Goo Bokke!
So because beauty/makeup is the main platform of this blog I thought I would start with my current beauty loves!
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
First up is the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. This product is a prescription serum which is said to remove 58% of dark spots in 12 weeks.
I have been battling of late with dark circles underneath my eyes. I am not sure if this is from stress, a bad nights sleep or something environmental like sinus’s. I also have always battled with acne scars on my face, the dark almost pigmentation-like marks.
I have been using this product for about 6 weeks and I can already see the difference in my dark circles as well as my acne scars. They seem lighter and more blurred and my skin tone is definitely much more even than before.
I wish I had taken a before photo but I will take a photo now and then after another 6 weeks and share it will you.
Just to tell you a bit about the actual feel of the product, it is a cloudy white silicone texture with a very clean smell to it. It applies smoothly on the skin and leaves ot feeling amazing!
Bionike Len’Oil Triderm Itch Reliever
Next is this AMAZING Bionike product. It is the Len’Oil Triderm Itch Reliever.
To those who have been following me lately, would know that I suffer from random itchiness and redness on my legs. I do not know if this is eczema or just random dry skin. It becomes so bad that I can not help but scratch and I end up with bruises and chapped skin.
Since Bionike sent me this amazing product I have found my match. Goodbye scars and redness on my legs!! This itch reliever is said to sooth itchiness, redness and dryness and believe me it does that and more! I am no dermatologist but I cannot live without this product!
This product contains a high concentration of Vitamin E as well as zanthoxylum extract. It is also gluten free, fragrance free and preservative free.
I would highly recommend this product!
Pink Cosmetics Facial Mist
I have spoken about this product in a blog post which I will link below for you to read.
I have to add this product into my loves and favourites post because not a day goes by where I don’t use this baby!! Pink Cosmetics Facial Mist is LIFE!
BYS Berries Palette
Next up in the makeup department is this amazing BYS Berries Palette.
I have been eyeing out this palette for as long as I can remember and when I got my hands on it I fell even more in love!
This palette holds 12 stunning warm tone shades, from nudes to dark reds and purples. The shades are a combination of shimmer and mattes shades and the colour pay off is out of this world!
This palette comes in a modern, embossed tin palette with a mirror and 2 applicators. I think this palette is lovely for all seasons because it is so versatile.
See my video review on this amazing palette! 🙂
Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess Sculpted Mascara
Now this product is another one of those that I use religiously every single day and I battled to separate from it just because of how amazing it is!
That is the Lash Princess Sculpted Mascara from Essence.
This mascara does everything it promises to do! It sculpts your eyelashes into the most gorgeous shape, adds volume like no other and it defines to the last lash!
The applicator is a tapered, curved brush just perfect for sculpting those lashes just the way you want them. If you are a beauty on a budget then this mascara is for you!
In my honest opinion this mascara is better than most high end mascaras I have tried and it retails for ONLY R64-95! I mean honestly!!!
Essence Cosmetics My Must Haves Palette
Another loves of mine currently is the “build your own palettes” from essence. It is the My Must Haves Collection! I absolutely love this concept and the fact that it is so budget friendly!
You can choose from such a variety of products, colours and shades to add into your palette as well as different size palettes. These palettes come in either a 4 or 8 pan palette which you can totally customise!
Essence also brought out their birthday edition which was in the trend edition place in Dischem for a while. I found these palettes so amazing when traveling because I did not have to lug around the full size product which just made packing that much easier!
The only thing I can complain about is that I wish the bronzer, blush and powder pans were just a tad bigger! But other than that I absolutely LOVE this collection!
Eau de Parfum by Pink Cosmetics
To end off my beauty favourites is this Eau de Parfum from Pink Cosmetics.
I have this parfum in the scent Luna D’or which is inspired by Dolce and Gabana, The One. This scent is amazing and it lasts all day on me.
I spray two puffs of this fragrance on my neck in the morning and it lasts the entire day! It comes in a gorgeous classical bottles with a gold top and makes any vanity look amazing! Another thing I love about this fragrance is that it is so affordable! This products retails for only R 115-00.
You can also choose from another 2 fragrances also inspired by famous designers!
This section is new to me but I thought I would add a different touch this blog post!:)
I am no fashion queen/blogger or guru but (thanks to my cousin who persuaded me to get these) I am absolutely loving my culottes from Zara. I am not always the most adventurous when it comes to clothing but I’m trying 😉
I like to pair these pants with a body suit, a nice tee or a crop top! Let me know what you think! 🙂
The other thing on my lifestyle/clothing list are these gorgeous sliders from Cotton On. They come in all colours and patterns and are just so incredibly comfy! I would suggest getting a pair!
And last on my lifestyle list is The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks Novel.
If you do not already know I absolutely love Nicholas Spark novels, movies and most importantly the quotes! I bought this book to read on my Vietnam trip and it was just perfect.
Its an amazing love story as always and I quick and easy read! It is the sequel to The Notebook. I wont give the plot away in case you would like to read it but let me just say… its beautiful! ❤
I hope you enjoyed my current favourites and loves! Let me know in the comments what your favourites and loves are currently!!
