Bioderma is one of those French affordable beauty brands I just love. Known for their cult Micellar Water they have now launched a new range focusing on brightening and pigmemtation. Two things that are super important for me. Introducing the Bioderma Pigmentbio range that also has a Brightening Micellar Water which I love love love love. I have been testing the products for the last couple of months in and around my other products. I always like to give skincare time rather than report back after a week. Whether its really helped my issue with pigmentation I am not sure but it has definitely added to hydration and brightening of my skin.

Due to the effects of sun, pollution, ageing, pregnancy, or breakouts the skin gets marks and dark spots. This is excactly what has happened to me over time so I am always on the look out for products that can help reduce or lighten them. Bioderma created this new range for sensitive skin to help combat hyperpigmentation. The products contain a LumirReveal Technology that acts on the steps of pigmentation: reduce dark spots, prevent new ones appearing and restore the skin’s brightness .

Dermalogica celebrates 25 Years of of amazing skincare this month of July and I have luckily been included to be involved to celebrate with them. You have only today to enter to stand a chance to win the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil giveaway worth R1379 (30ml). If like me you struggle with dehydrated skin this oil is a goodie. I know lots of people freak out when they hear face oil but this one is amazing. Apply it and it melts into your skin leaving a gorgeous glow and super soft skin.

I wanted to chat about a few of my favourite Chanel beauty products today especially for those thinking of splurging but not sure what to get. Of course their eyeshadows are lovely and basically everything Chanel is lovely but here is a little selection. I have selected mostly makeup items but also with one skincare product too from the Hydra Beauty range. For me makeup is all about good skin that’s contoured and glowing so that’s why I have chosen the makeup items in this post. Chanel have quite a few foundations to choose from and it can get confusing what to go for. Here I have gone for a dewy one but their latest matt foundation is also amazing. It really depends on what look you are going for.

If you have een following me since last year you will know I have been on the Environ journey. Even though I was initially invited to come do a skin analysis, try a facial and get some free goodies I have kept going back. I really believe in investing in my skin. So when I was asked so I want to test the new Environ Focus Care Radiance + range for pigmentation and radiance I was like YES PLEASE. The corner stone of the brand is Vitamin A with a whole load of add ons and step ups which I love. This range I can add in with what I am currently using from Environ, plus a few other products too. I take my skin seriously expecially as I am now in my 40’s. The key for me is to have radiant glowing hydrated skin and reduce my pigmentation.

I have been busy testing the new Clicks Expert Skincare Range on myself and my kids. I don’t often include my kids as I focus on beauty for myself but its been fun they have loved being part of it. I have been sharing bits and pieces on insta stories and over the weekend my kids will be sharing what they thought. The range focuses on face, body and kids body products for sensitive skin that really works for the whole family. My daughter has struggled with eczema just like me so the bath products have been great for her. Everything in the rangefragrance free plus sulphate and paraben free so if you have really sensitive skin this may be one to try out.

When struggling with sensitive skin the key thing to look for is fragrance free or fast absorbing, that don’t strip the skin  of its natural oils. Thats what the Clicks Expert Range is all about. The range features moisturising face and body creams, lotions and washes that are all gentle on the skin.

To say I love the new Ren Radiance Daily Glow Vitamin C Gel Cream is an understatement. As soon as it landed on my desk this one by passed other products due for testing and its now in my personal skincare stash. Firstly anthing that smells like citrus I am in its one of my favourite scents. I love citrus as it just instanly soothes me. Plus anything Ren skincare is always a goodie. The moisturiser couldn’t have arrived at a better time as my skin always needs an extra boost in winter.

The Croatian Skincare brand Nikel launched in SA and I got the chance to test out a couple of their skincare products. I am a lover of all things skincare so trying anything new always makes me super happy. The brand prides itself on having innovative formulas that include plant extracts and essential oils and caters for all skin types. The creator of the brand created the Nikel range so as to give the skin what it needs and wants. Plus the ingredients are good for the inside as well as the outside. I love that Nikel is a natural skincare product, uses natural preservatives, cruelty free but also feels luxurious at the same time.

Its hard for me to give a full view of the brand as I only tested out the cleanser and moisturiser but I can say I loved the products I got my hands on. The brand pretty much focuses on dehydrated, dry and mature skin so if you are looking for something new this may be one you want to check out.

In this post I wanted to chat about some of my fav Dermalogica skincare products. Its hard to be able to choose from a brand especially when there is so much to choose from. I like to mix things up so I never use just one brand but a few at the same time. It can be difficult navigating your way trying to work out what is best. Especially when some skincare is really costly its always a good idea to do some research. Dermalogica is definitely on the pricey side but some of the products for me are really worth it.

I have loved Ren Skincare since I started using it in back in 2015 and its a brand that really works and makes skin feel amazing. Whether you want glowing skin or you have sensitive skin this natural brand has it all. This time I got to test out two products one is a face mist that helps protect your skin and the other a spray to help you sleep. I actually chatted about the Ren Flash Defense Anti Pollution Mist on my insta stories a while back. So if you didn’t get to see it go check out Shahnaz Loves Beauty its in my Face Mists stories. I have been loving both so much that they both live next to my bed in my coveted skin section.

If you looking to get seriously hydrated this winter then keep reading this post. Its all about getting hydrated with Avene skincare especially for those of you who have dry or sensitive skin. They have a gorgeous range that includes a Micellar Lotion, a gentle milk cleanser and a gentle toning lotion. Plus once you have seriously cleaned your skin leaving it feeling fab, you then add even more hydration with the  Avene Hydrance Rehydrating Serum. Trust me when I say that after just one go of all of these four products your skin will be super luminous. I love love love all the products I got to test out.
