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.
I have finally finished my 4 week Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment and my skin feels ridiculously amazing. Its a brand new treatment kit that is basically an at home peel kit that has 4 stages. I have always been terrified of peels and have dabbled in a couple non invasive treatments over the last couple years. This treatment gets the same results without any harsh treatment to the skin. You just apply every night and voila gorgeous glowing skin. Each week each treatment deals with different skin concerns and its gentle with no discomfort. My skin just looked and felt better each week.
More and more people are turning to natural products including me. I try and be as concious as I can and opting for oragnic products for meself and my pro kit. So when I was invited to the iconic brand Burts Bees launch I was super excited. For those of you who don’t know it at all its famous for its lip balms made with beeswax a natural hydrating ingredient. For now there is a limited amount available in SA so lets hope that will change.
We all know how I feel French skincare I absolutely love it no doubt about that. I have become more obsessed with skincare as I have gotten older. Plus being a makeup artist I always want the models to have their skin looking the absolute best. I have added in some favs from Nuxe Skincare into my kit and have also been testing out on me too of course. If you don’t know anything about the brand its all about awakening your senses. Nuxe is well known for its iconic Dry Oil and some amazing skincare too.
