Sugar lip scrub battle

Anyone who wears liquid lipstick; or any lipstick for that matter, knows just how important smooth lips are to give you that smooth, finished look. And while lip scrubs have been around for a long while, they have never been more part of my make up routine as now. I tested (and tasted) some of the latest sugar scrubs on the market to find which one works best for me. View Post

Mask of the week 5/52

After a lovely vacation in Cape Town, it’s time to settle back into my regular schedule, which includes the traditional Sunday evening mask.

However, while in SA, I took along a few masks for my daughter and her friends to try out. We had so much fun! View Post

Mask of the week 4/52

“No time for a spa-manicure? Slip on these convenient glove-like masks and in a matter of minutes, rediscover improved hands, soft and smooth.”
Imbibed with a concentrated cream containing active ingredients that repair, moisturise and nourish the skin, they combine the benefits of a mask with the gentleness of a cream.

Leave on for 20 – 30 minutes, then remove, then massage hands until remaining cream is absorbed, There is no need to rinse. My hands were perfectly moisturised and for a few days after the skin was still supple, smooth and soft. Qiriness is a French brand with its products made in Switzerland,

My skin felt super-moisturised after having the mask on for 20 minutes. I found my skin remained quite ‘wet’ and ‘glossy’ for about 30 minutes after, so much so that I was tempted to rinse my face. After all the serum absorbed, my skin felt nourised and smooth.

Happy Monday!

Inspired by @stylesprinter‘s #365maskchallenge (which I found out about via the stunning @stunnydesi_loves) I decided to start my own #52weekmaskchallenge. Each week I’ll feature the mask I used with a little review, I hope you enjoy the journey with me!
