A couple of weeks ago Essence sent me a couple of items from their autumn trend addition ‘me & my umbrella’. The first thing that always gets me excited about their trend editions, is the gorgeous packaging. The details are always so perfect. And the make-up? Still the best budget buys around.

The collection includes 4 nail polishes. I received rosewood and dark red. The polishes have a semi-matt, gummy finish that gives a ‘rain boots’ effect. These retail for R45.

The product that I was most keen to try is the eyebrow thickener. The eyebrow powder has an innovative sponge applicator to help give you perfectly defined brows. When you get the application technique just right, this product gets your brows looking perfect in no time. It comes in 2 shades; blonde and brunette and retails for R55.

The lipstick is my favourite. I love the look of matte lipsticks, but they usually just make my lips look dried out. This one does not! It’s gorgeous. And the dark red shade is perfect for the colder months.

The lipstick retails for R50. Also be on the lookout for the luscious rosewood shade.

The range includes 2 matte eye shadows and I have been really enjoying the grey. The shadow is velvety and applies beautifully. Shadows retail for R45.

I am a huge fan of Essence make-up brushes. They are budget friendly and always super soft. The range includes a gorgeous contouring brush and at only R65, it’s a steal.

The Essence me & my umbrella range is definitely worth checking out. You better hurry to Dis-Chem though now as stocks are limited.

Happy shopping!

NIVEA Rich Nourishing Body Lotion review

If you have normal skin, you can stop reading now. I can almost guarantee that you will hate this lotion.

It is heavy and rich.

And that is exactly what my skin needs in winter. It tends to take a bit of time to fully absorb, but I don’t mind. I can feel my skin sighing with relief when I apply it. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, comfortable and nourished for the whole day. The care that this lotion provides, lasts. And that is quite a feat during the cold, dry months.

If your skin needs a little extra care, NIVEA Rich Nourishing Body Lotion is for you.

Want to know what makes the gorgeous lotion even better? The price!

250ml goes for R36.99, 400ml for R47.99 and a massive 625ml pump bottle goes for only R69.99.

And now you know ;)
