The Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer

The Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer

I really love all things Bourjois its one budget brand that never fails in terms of quality and finish and sometimes its a brand that really is underestimated. As you all know I am a massive fan of the Healthy Mix Foundations and the CC Cream so when I heard about the Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer I needed to buy it.

This lightweight serum is all about illuminating the skin and boosting your complexion without it being too heavy or greasy. The serum glides on beautifully and even though it has a peach/pink tint once applied to the skin it just looks beautiful and really fresh no matter what skintone you are. This serum is meant for normal to dry skin but I have combination and I still loved in on my skin, there is a matt version for oily skin so this illuminating one wouldn’t be right for you.

I love the packaging of The Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer and that it has a pump so no product is wasted. You just need one pump which I apply onto the back of my hands and then with my fingers massage the serum all over. Primers are all about helping creating a flawless finish and allowing your foundation to last that bit longer and this one really does what it says. My skin feels fresh and complexion seems brighter so love this for an everyday primer.  Apply foundation after you have applied the serum.

The Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer is available on Rubybox.co.za for R155.95 so a great budget buy and a great way to have gorgeous looking skin every day.

The Matt Foundation – Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet

As you all know I love things Chanel and their latest offering is the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation. I have never been a matt foundation fan even though it has been a big trend on the catwalk. I have always been a dewy skin kind of girl where my skin is glowing when I step out the door. However I was intrigued to see how this foundation felt on my skin.

Their advert for the foundation makes you want to try it straight away even though I know its been photo shopped. You can see how smooth and beautiful the skin looks without the dewy.

Its extremely light weight and its definitely more to the sheer than medium coverage. It definitely blends in easily and the finish is very smooth skin and an evened out skin tone. This  foundation would be an absolute winner for oily skin because of its matt finish. I have combination skin so for me I need to make sure my skin is really hydrated before applying. Some products can dry out my skin so with this formulation I use a slightly richer moisturiser before applying the foundation.

The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation is supposed to reduce pores and improve the skin’s texture but I haven’t used it enough to say whether its true. The combination of absorbent powders ensures the absorption of sebum instantly enhancing the complexion with a velvety matt effect. The key to the formula is the Perfect Skin Affinity Complex which adapts to the curves of the face. When applied to the face it becomes like a second skin and even though it has a matt finish it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry or tight. Another element to the foundation is the patented Perfect Light Control Complex, which combines the semi sheer powders that provided boosted luminosity and powders coated in mineral pigments that deliver a correcting effect. The complex ensures there is a right balance between correction and a radiant complex.

There are 11 shades of the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet retailing at R555 and launches on the 14th April. I got my hands on shade no 40 beige, here is a pic of me wearing the foundation it totally evens out my skin tone and definitely looks luminous. It will take me a while to get used to the texture but it definitely is beautiful and leaves skin feeling like silky velvet. Another winning foundation by Chanel.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream

So I finally got myself to Clicks to buy the new Bourjois CC cream and I am happy to report I love it. I saw Lisa Eldrige use it on a make up tutorial so that was a big incentive to try but I also love their foundations so I knew it would be a goodie.

Bourjois claim it has the skincare action of a cream and colour correction of a foundation in one step. There are 3 colour correcting pigments that smooth away imperfections:

Apricot pigment: Anti-Fatigue

Green Pigment: Anti-Redness

White Pigments: Anti-dark spots

The skincare element is it has an SPF of 15 and 24 hour hydration. Leaving luminous and flawless skin.  It has a non-oily light weight formula and is enriched with envigorating white tea extracts.

I applied with my finger tips and a little goes a long way. It really does have the coverage of a foundation and my skin feels so smooth and soft which is exactly what I am looking for in make up. What I am also happy about is that there is a shade for me. I always struggle when there are only 3 shades  and the medium is too pink for my skin tone. So yay to Bourjois. Definitely a great alternative to foundation as it has enough coverage.

Will definitely be using in a make up tutorial very soon.

So a while back I went to a launch for Skinceuticals and Vichy and we were introduced to the Vichy Idealia Serum which launches this month in SA. If you don’t know the Vichy Brand its a French brand and its all about Ideal Skin, they have been the leader in anti-ageing the last 10 years. Vichy products allow women to transform their skin, even sensitive, immediately and durably. Products are combined with advanced active ingredients to Vichy termal spa water, genuine beauty water for the skin, recognised for its unique minerals and its soothing , fortifying and regenerating properties. 60% of women have sensitive skin and Vichy offers a full holistic approach and values the universality of the brand. Vichy is all about science and results.

So what’s the serum and what’s it going to do for our skin?

Here is a little video from Vichy about the serum:

The Serum:

Vichy introduces its exclusive correcting complex LR2412+LHA, in a formula that helps repair in real time the damages of life excesses on the skin. The LR2412 is from the Jasmin plant skin which helps regenerate and the LHA takes a top layer of the skinand incombination allows the LR2412 reach the derma. For the spectacular transformation of skin quality:

  • Fresh Complexion
  • Even Skin Tone

The serum is suitable for all skin types and for women looking to transform their skin quality. It leaves skin instantly smoothed, plumped, fresh and soft. Its a radiance primer, enriched with golden and red pearls, for an instant ideal skin colour and gives the skin luminosity and leaves it glowing.

What did I think?

I have been using the serum for a couple of weeks now as part of my beauty routine. I love the glow it gives to my skin and I definitely think its a great primer before applying any make up. My skin feels so soft and fresh and is definitely looking luminous that shines through my foundation. I love the pearly colour and that definitely translates onto the skin.

The Idealia Serum launches this month and is priced at R475 so its all about affordable luxury.

Hope you enjoyed my post. Shahnaz x

 

 

Nip + Fab is an amazing brand that has hit SA shores and is exclusive to Clicks. I had tried the CC cream in the UK but never got to try out the skin care. Kerry-Ann who does their PR sent me a box load of products to try (lucky me). The brand is all about instant beauty fixes made simple.

Nip + Fab is clinically tested skincare and body care fixes crammed with breakthrough natural and scientific ingredients. They promise to offer target solutions for specific skincare and bodycare concerns by combining the latest active ingredients with technically advanced smoothing, firming and boosting properties. The world famous range includes celeb favourites like Upper Arm Fix giving toned arms in just 2 weeks and no Needle Fix for an alternative to cosmetic procedures.

Check out all the press that Nip + Fab has had

So what did I think?

Nip and Fab

I love the products and my skin felt so hydrated after using them and even though I am off testing other products I still use the eye cream every morning and the face cleanser plus the pads are great for removing excess make up and leaving my skin glowing. So here are the products I used:

Glycolic Fix Cleanser R234.99: Foaming facial cleanser with Glycolic and Apple Amino Acids. Its purpose is to deeply cleanse, tighten and tone the skin. Its a brightening cleanser that works to rid skin of all traces of grime and make up whilst giving the skin a refreshing boost. The Glycolic Acid works to retexture the skin to hide the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles, whilst the Olive Oil deeply hydrates the skin. Key Benefits: GA helps stimulate cellular activity and collagen synthesis to improve skin elasticity and boost radiance. Apple Amino Acid provides a dense and skin-softening foam whilst protecting the skin’s natural barrier. Olive Oil reduces water loss to increase hydration for smooth and soft skin.

What more can I say on the cleanser it has left my skin feeling fresh and so smooth every day and I have been getting constant compliments on my skin. If you going to invest in any product that cleansing is one of the key items as we all need a clean face!

Glycolix Fix Exfoliating Pads R 264.99: These innovative wipes are packed with Glycolic Acid to improve skin tone and texture. These anti ageing pads contain Glycolic and Hyaluronic Acid that help stimulate cell turnover for a smoother brighter complexion. The pads also contain blue daisy to soothe skin while skin will appear smoother, fresher and brighter after using the pads.

Use these pads after cleansing and wipe along your face, neck and decollete. You can use these pads once or twice a day. I really like these pads as they made my skin feel really fresh afterwards and gave me a glow which is what I am constantly wanting for my skin.

No Needle Fix Serum R364.99: This serum is an SOS lifting and intensive plumping serum containing cellative-form to plump fine lines and improve overall skin’s tonicity and elasticity and indinyl ca to hydrate and condition skin. Wrinkle buster osilift acts as an instant tensor blurring imperfections and smoothing wrinkles while keeping make up firmly in place. 

Apply by massaging into your face and neck especially where the areas on your face you have expression lines and make sure you apply before your moisturiser. I used the serum every morning for a month and in combination with the moisturiser my skin really felt amazing and glowing by the time I applied my foundation.

Instant Radiance Wrinkle Fix R 334.95: This beauty pump adds radiance and improves elasticity leaving skin conditioned and hydrated. It contains specially formulated hyaluronic acid filling spheres which bind up to 1000 times their weight in water to visibly fill and plump the skin for noticeably smoother fine lines and wrinkles. The moisturiser is enriched with a combination of essential oils like grapeseed oil which helps tighten and tone and meadowfoam seed oil to fight the signs of ageing and protect against the harmful effects of the environment which helps leaving skin hydrated and protected. Working in harmony with jojoba seed oil, evening primrose oil, rose hip oil, glycerin, lanolin and mica. 

This cream is all about giving the skin a glow which is a big YAY for me. I love when skin looks radiant even before any make up is applied because it will shine through the foundation. When it comes to applying make up its so key that your skin has been prepped and this is all down to your skincare routine. I love how Nip + Fab leaves my skin looking and feeling.

Triple-Action Eye Cream R299.99: Love love love this eye cream and its still part of my beauty routine even though I am trying other products. This eye cream helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles while hydrating to fight against premature ageing. This eye cream fix works to break down stubborn crows feet and deep-set wrinkles around the area for a fresh youthful glow. This 3-in-1 formula combines red algea to target dark circles, tetra peptide to reduce puffiness and shea butter to hydrate and soften so for me its a definite must for my beauty regime. 

When I am tired which is a lot I get dry under my eyes but with this cream my skin is hydrated all the time and it seems by dark circles aren’t as noticeable.

Its a cool brand with a lot of press and celebrity fans. Plus the prices are more affordable so you can at least incorporate some items into your beauty regime. Go check it out.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x

 

 

 

 

Elizabeth Arden is well known for its iconic Eight Hour Cream and in February 14 they will be launching the Limited Edition which I got my hands on as a Chritmas gift from the lovely PR Manager Alice. I think most make up artists have a tube of the Eight Hour Cream in their pro kit and its probably one of their best selling products.

If you don’t know what the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is an all-day, all-night, all-in-one beauty secret. This skincare helps sooth, restore, calm and helps relieve chapped, cracked and dry skin as the cream has anti-inflammatory benefits. As well as soothes, and comforts minor weather burns, scrapes and abrasions.

The story behind the Eight Hour cream:

It was created in the 1930’s by Elizabeth Arden to soothe skin and became an overnight success. The cream was so effective as it combined petrolatum, a skin soothing beta- hydroxy in one of its first cosmetic uses, and Vitamin E. The apricot coloured balm was so beneficial to her clients, Miss Arden used it to soothe her thorough bread horses.

Most make up artists will swear by the cream when on set to apply to lips as well as using it to create a natural highlight on the cheek bones for a shoot or apply to the lids to create a gloss effect without being sticky.

EA 8HR

Here are 10 top tips on how to use the cream from the Rebecca the Gobal Make Up Artist:

  1. Smooth on brows to tame unruly brows.
  2. Keep skin hydrated while travelling. Take a pea size rub in to your hands to warm up the cream and pat onto your face to seal in the moisture.
  3. Rub cream on cuticles at night to keep them soft and easy to maintain.
  4. When wearing sandles apply each night and lock in moisture by wearing socks while sleeping.
  5. Create dewy skin by applying on cheek bones.
  6. Achieve a sexy glow by applying on shoulders, collar bone and shins.
  7. Hydrate and soothe chapped lips.
  8. Control ashiness on elbows by massaging them into the areas after showering when your skin is most receptive to moisture.
  9. Revive hair that has been damaged due to over styling, weather or hair colouring by applying a small amount onto dry areas especially the ends!
  10. Make eyeshadow look softer and sheer. Use fingertips and apply to the centre of the lids over the eeshadow. This will create extra shimmer and glow without disturbing the rest of your make up.

So if you haven’t tried the Eight Hour Cream go get one and if you are already a big fan then you will want to get your hands on this limited edition pot. I love it.

Get Your Glow On with Lancome

So I have been testing out the Lancome Dream Tone for the past 7 weeks and I absolutely love how my skin looks once I apply but combine it with their new foundation that is launching next year its an amazing combination to get beautiful glowing skin. Here is a pic of me after using both products:

Lancome

If you follow my blog you know I am always seeking for products that will make my skin look amazing and give that beautiful glowing dewy finish. These 2 products combined are seriously my new best friends. So here is more on the DreamTone and Teint Visionnaire:

Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 19.22.18

DreamTone: Its Lancome’s new ultimate dark spot corrector and beautiful skin tone creator and comes in 3 shades. I have been testing out no 2 medium skin tone for the last 7 weeks. I apply every morning after I have done my skin care routine and before applying my foundation. The DreamTone for me is a great product for the brightening effect I don’t think it lightened my pigmentation just yet but it definitely left my skin looking absolutely beautiful, feeling good and has for sure evened out my skin tone by the time it comes to applying my make up. Each shade is meant to work on different skin tones and problem areas so the light tone deals with redness and the dark shade deals with blemishes. The one I tested was for dark spots, uneven skin tone and sallowness and I can say for myself my skin definetly seems brighter. The product promises that after a while of using the DreamTone serum you will be able to go out the house wearing no make up. I think if you have a bit of a tan then maybe as it leaves the skin really glowing. The serum contains antioxidants and a triple action technology which has allowed them to tailor make each specific need of each skin type. Whether it treats all these problems I think more time will be needed to test out.

Teint Visonnaire Skin Perfecting Make Up Duo: I love love love this foundation and concealer. I tried it out this weekend with the DreamTone and I was so happy with the dewy finish and the beautiful glow.

Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 20.39.45

The foundation launches in SA in February and is their new vision of high perfection foundation. The 2 in 1 helps combine perfect coverage with a natural finish. The high coverage corrector is enriched with Vitamn CG, it has a creamy texture and is amazing at covering dark circles, blemishes and pigmentation. The foundation promises to even out the complexion and visbly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The foundation is enriched with LR2412, the active ingredient integrated into the Visionnaire skincare.

To apply use you fingers and dab in concealer under eyes, around the nose, and on any blemishes and pigmentation and then apply a foundation  onto the back of your hand apply onto each area on the face the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and then massage in to get the flawless finish. This foundation is definitely my new best friend for me and on set.

Last week I went for an educational facial with Anel from Future This. Anel absoloutely believes and loves this brand so she was the best person to teach me about QMS what it represents and of course gave me an amazing facial. When someone is that passionate about products it makes you really excited to try.

So what is QMS?

The man behind the brand is a German cosmetic surgeon Dr Eric Schulte created this elite medical skincare range based on research led, Collagen enhancing technology to create a regeneritive skincare range. As we get older (like me) our collagen stops producing, our skin starts to sag and we get wrinkles. This skincare range was created to help with all these issues as QMS origonated from the research into the critical role of collagen in skin regenration and effectively treat damaged and ageing skin on the face and body and return it to a more youthful and healthy status.

The facial I had was the Classic Collagen  Lifting Treatment which was a 90 minute facial. So here were the steps and products used:

Deep Cleansing: My entire neck and face was cleansed so as to take away any dirt and excess oil and make up before the facial begun. The product contains no mineral oils and helps enhance the penetration of collagens and boost the skin’s natural protective functions.

Exfoliant Fluid: Anel explained that most exfoliators don’t penetrate the skin they just work on the sufrace where as the QMS fluid which is a natural AHA exfoliant that incorporates the patent delivery technique NEXTT, which allows the ingredients to penetrate 15% deeper and regenerating ingredients are delivered over a period of 12 hours, ensuring facial results last a long time after the treatment. This fluid  makes the skin really tingle  and the face goes red and it got the point where I got so hot that Anel had to put the airconditioning on but it meant that the product was really working.

Algen Modelage: Anel asked if I wanted the “rubber mask” put on as it would cover the whole face excluding the mouth and she could only remove it once it was set. So as I trusted her I went with it. So the algen was applied over my face and when it sets its like rubber and then is peeled away. The mask gets an imprint from your face so Anel could tell I was dehydrated under the eyes (tired as always) and that I had a breakout by my mouth. The mask basically is used to lift the skin’s dead cell’s after the exfoliant fluid has done its work and leaves the skin feeling really fresh and revitalised.

Freshening Tonic: This was applied so as to stabilise the skin’s pH after the exfoliation and allow maximum absorption into the skin after exfoliation and leaves the skin feeling so fresh and so smooth.

Day Collagen: This product has a 70% of natural solluble collagen with protective anti oxidants making it a firming and hydrating serum. The QMS natural solluble collagen can swell up to x 360 in its own weight in moisture giving instant results on fine lines and wrinkles.

24 Hr Cream: Anel massaged my face with this super moisturing cream with a 24 hour complex protective and moisturing complex. The cream also contains an anti-free radical complex of Vitamin A,C,E. I didn’t realise how tired I was until my face was being massaged and with Anel’s expert skills I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep. I have been using the cream as part of my nightly beauty routine and I love it.

Relax-O-Firm Mask: Its a moisture regulating cream mask with muscle relaxing properties Anel applied a thick layer onto my face. This mask is for lifting and smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles and expression lines. (I will be buying one of these for sure).

Plaster of Paris: So this is the first time I have ever had Plaster of Paris on my face. Anel explained that using this would help create the maximum liftting effect so that all the ingredients will penetrate properly into the skin. After about 15 minutes the Plaster of Paris was removed and all the excess product was then cleansed off.

Instant Perfection, Neck and More and Sport Active: To finish off the treatment Anel applied the Instant Perfection around the eye contour. The Neck & More was applied on the decollete and the neck and then lastly the Sports Active tinted moisturiser was applied all over my face which has an SPF 15. The tinted moisturiser adapts to your skin colour leaving an even skin tone and also contains polyphenol anti-oxidants for protective protection against harmful effects of UV rays.

When the facial was done I have never felt or seen the way my skin looked. Anel told me not to put anything on my face and I was going to meet my husband and go out. I didn’t put any extra make up on my skin because it felt and looked amazing I don’t think my skin has ever glowed as much.

If you are Cape Town based like me then get yourself to the Cape Grace and try the facial for yourself its pricey at R850 but trust me your skin will love you for it. I am definitely converted. Prices of product range from about R680 upwards and definitely worth the investment especially from women in their 30’s all the way upwards. I have already advised my mum to start using these products. Skincare is so essential and a brand like QMS is definitely what our skin needs.

Smashbox What’s New

Earlier this week I attended a Smashbox event in Cape Town where their latest products were showcased. I am very excited with what they showed us and am very happy to say that Smashbox products are even better than they were before. I hadn’t been to a Smashbox counter in a while and am very happy to see so many new products.

For those of you who don’t know about Smashbox is an American brand from LA and its the only make up brand that was created with in a studio and tried and tested in front of a camera.  Its all about beauty with and edge and about being picture perfect all the time. Since the arrival of Instagram people are talking selfie’s all the time and we want to be camera ready all the time. Smashbox promise that their make up and especially with their foundations are 100% photo friendly.

So what’s new at Smashbox?

HD Liquid Halo Foundation R370: This foundation is gorgeous and I am very excited to test this out on set. There are 10 shades available from light to dark. I really want to test out the darkest shade and see if it can really work on the darkest skin tone. So the foundation has a new technology called liquid light technology and can be applied with either brush or fingers if you want the foundation to really melt into your skin. See the diagram below:

Screen Shot 2013-11-07 at 06.48.51

The foundation is buildable so you can go sheer or get better coverage by buffing in with a foundation brush but if you suffer from bad skin you will also need to conceal. Its oil free and hydrating which is a big plus for me and it allows the skin to look its best and be natural at the same time as it works with the skin’s natural undertones. Plus its traceless to the eye if blended in properly as well as being sweat and humidity resistant.

Screen Shot 2013-11-07 at 09.51.56

I love the texture and I love how it feels on my skin its very light and feels like you have nothing on. This foundations will definitely go into my pro kit. Here is a pic of me with the foundation and smudged smokey eye using one of their new kohl pencil’s:

Smashbox HD

I went for the foundation shade in No 5 which is a shade darker than I would normally go for but my body is darker so I wanted everything to match. I love that with the pencil you can create a beautiful smudged smokey eye.

Always Sharp Khol Waterproof Liners R200: Love love love these pencils. They are great quality and glide on so easily into the skin and you can blend them in so easily to create a smudged smokey eye, a base for your smokey eye or a graphic eye and they come in 8 shades. The biggest selling point for me is that they are self sharpening so when you twist the cap the pen sharpens!!! I tested out the chocolate pencil yesterday creating a smudged smokey eye and then blended in and the pencil lasted from 9am till 9pm when I took my make up off and was still in the waterline so this will be great for a shoot so you don’t have to keep reapplying.

Screen Shot 2013-11-07 at 16.29.50

Check out this video’s on 3 ways to use the pencils:

More Than A Primer R390: So since I last checked out Smashbox they had a few primers which I liked but now they have introduced so many more totalling to 13 primers in total including a luminiser and hydrating primer (need these).

So the one they have recently launched is the Photofinish Blemish Control Primer with breakthrough technology. Smashbox promises that it can banish blemishes in as little as 2 weeks and is a complete treatment for people suffering from acne. Its very light in texture and glides on to the skin so its breathable and soothing to the skin. It has the feel of silicone but is more like water on the skin so those of you that get irritated by silicone then you will be very happy with this primer. its also oil free and controls oil over time. It contains 2% salicylic acid which will treat the acne but won’t dry the skin. Apply on your skin before your foundation.

Dirty Works-The Review

I got some Dirty Works products a while ago but only recently got to actually test them. I love this quirky brand even more so that is from the UK  and I absolutely the packaging. Dirty Works is a great budget brand and its all about “Good Clean Fun.”

So what is the brand about and why was it created?

They say “The people of the Dirty Works Kingdom suffered from dull, drab and dreary lives. They longed for glamorous products that would transform their existence from tedious to tremendous, dingy to dazzling and boring to brilliant!”

So after researching that is what they did, they created Dirty Works that is all about sensational skincare to beautiful bodycare.

The great thing is that Dirty Works has arrived on South African shores and is exclusive to Clicks. I was sent a few lovely products to try out and I absolutely love them and what’s even better I love the price!

So here is what I tried out and what I thought:

Berry Detox Mask R49.99.  Its a fruity clay mask with superfruit extracts of Blueberry, skin clearing Willow Bark and detoxifying Green Clay and Kaolin to help draw impurities from your skin to help keep it fresh and glowing. I have been using the mask once a week to give me a little boost. I love the smell its very fruity so that already makers you feel better, massage the mask all over and leave for 10 mins and then wash off. My skin felt very smooth afterwards and left a bit of a glow. Love it.

Collagen On Call Overnight Facial R75.95: I absoloutely love this cream. When you apply it you can already feel that your skin is going to be amazing in the morning. The cream combines triple peptide complex, seaweed extract and nourishing Shea Butter. It supposed to lift, tone and boost collagen while you sleep, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I haven’t been using it long enough to say it reduces fine lines and wrinkles but my skin is feeling amazing every morning when I wake up. They advise to use this product for 8 weeks to see results so will keep you posted. You don’t have to use much of the cream as  little goes a long way. My skin is definitely glowing and its a favourite for me.

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 10.28.57

Stop Puffy Eyes Eye Cream R49.99: Another product I am really loving. The eye cream is enhanced with light reflectors and boosted with a proven tightening peptide and stimulating caffine to help improve circulation around the delicate eye area as well as Vitamin E to help blast away the free radicals. My schedule is always hectic and the area around my eyes is always affected especially if I am tired. This eye cream is really moisturing as it contains Shea Butter so it helps combat dry skin and gives the area under the eye a boost so my dark circles aren’t as dark!

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 12.18.30

Gently Does It Face Wipes R29.95: I always use face wipes when on set and for myself if I am really tired to remove make up. I usually stick to one brand but I really like these wipes. They remove all the make up and leave skin feeling really fresh. The wipes are kind to your skin, suitable for all skin types and are alcohol free. They are also fruity which I really love they contain supetfruit extract of Cranberry to help nourish and moisturise skin as well as containing antioxidant properties to help the skin against ageing.

There are a few more items available at Clicks and definitely a great budget buy to ensure your skin is left looking and feeling really great.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x
