Rubybox Smooch Stick in Tangerine Tango – R129.95
This is a new launch from rubybox, which you can pick up online here, and it really is full of the most beautiful pigment. This shade is also going to be my summer go-to colour. It’s so complimentary to bronzed summer skin. This product is similar to the Clinique Chubby Stick but the colour is way more opaque so great for the evening. It saw this colour and thought of this pic that I have put on the blog before straight away. The colour suits this make-up look perfectly!
TLC Facial Wipes
I am not generally a huge fan of facial wipes for day-to-day use but they definitely do have their place and can be so handy, especially for holiday season where there will be a lot more late nights and where efficiency and ease as our number one priority. I love these ones from TLC, and think the fact that they cater to loads of different skin care needs is great, my favourite are definitely the Exfoliating ones. They are fragrance and oil free so leave no oily film on the skin and just do their job really well. These well definitely be accompanying me on my holidays this season! These were announced Product of The Year for 2013 which definitely says something,Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation! Go TLC!
Lush Christmas Bath Bombs and their online store
I am a huge Lush fan. I walk into that store and I get completely over excited and want everything. The lush ladies were kind enough to send me a Christmas present with their Christmas bath bombs. As expected – they smell like heaven, have loads of glitter and are made of the most gorgeous festive colours to get you in the mood. Treat yourself or someone special. Oh and the best part is Lush online has now launches so if you don’t have a Lush store nearby you can get your fix online. I haven’t tried the service but have heard great reports! Plus their gift sets are amazing!
SkinLogic Body Candle with fig extract – R170
I obviously chose the fig scented candle – the best scent of all time! These candles are lovely and the wax (once heated) can be used as a really hydrating and luxurious body oil for massage. The candles are free off all the bad things that would irritate our skins but rather packed with pure ingredients to pamper, hydrate and soften our skins. I used this oil from the candle and my sunburnt skin (whoops, I know!) and it was so incredibly hydrating and soothing! It also comes in a Pineapple Extract scent. Find stockists here.
Filorga Skin Structure Serum – R785
This is the first of its kind that I’ve tried – I have never used a product that targets sagging. I’m pretty sure a lot of them indirectly do that but this is the main focus of the brand new Skin-Structure Firming and Redefining Serum.
To tackle sagging skin and loss of firmness, Filorga’s Skin-Structure treatment restores the structure and density of the skin to lift and tauten facial contours in three ways:
- Boosting skin density
- Redefining facial structure and boosting volume
- Visibly lifting the skin
This serum has some really innovative ingredients that excited me from the get-go. A really topline look at what they are and what they do:
- Voluform – to restore volume in the skin
- Collaxyl – a collagen peptide
- Hyaluronic acid and Filorga’s NCTF complex visibly restore skin tissue due to the biological stimulation of the skin cells
- Dynalift – smooth’s and firms
It’s in stores as of Feb 2014 (Edgars & Red Square).
