Johnson’s Vita-Rich body range is the budget launch of the year

Johnson’s recently launched their new Vita-Rich body range consisting of body washes, body lotions and bar soaps. My senses have fallen head over heels for this range. I promise you, when you try it, you will agree that this is the budget body range you’ve been waiting for. Johnson’s Vita-Rich body range is the budget launch of the year The Vita-Rich Body Care Range from Johnson’s is inspired by nature for healthy-looking skin. The range is enriched with beautiful natural ingredients like berry extracts, grape seed oil, papaya and rose water. I was a bit hesitant to try the body wash at first as my super sensitive, eczema-prone skin usually doesn’t like body washes. By the 3rd or 4th wash my skin tends to start showing signs of an eczema flare-up and I have to put the wash away. Not with Johnson’s Vita-Rich! I used the last (precious) drop of my favourite variant and my skin loves it. No reaction at all. The body wash leaves my skin feeling cleansed, smooth and soft. Beautiful! The body lotions are very light, non-greasy and fast-absorbing. This is great for summer, but I was worried that it would not give me the nourishment my skin needs in winter. Again I was proved wrong. My favourite variant (thus far) is Replenishing with Raspberry Extract. Oh my. The scent is out of this world! When my little girl and I use it (the products are gentle enough to use on her skin by the way!), the whole house smells of berries. It really is such a treat.    Johnson’s Vita-Rich Soap Bars retail for...

Why I still love my Spindel Laundry Dryer… and a link to get one at a great price

Today is exactly 11 months since I posted my original review of the Spindel. I have used it after 99.9% of the loads I have washed during these 11 months (yes, even during summer). It has been an absolute lifesaver in our household. Why am I posting about it again? Winter is here and you need one. And why do you need one… Because you will save money on electricity, your drying time (air or tumble dry) will be much less than before, you will not have heaps of damp laundry stinking up your house and your laundry will feel and smell better than ever before. And, those with sensitive skin and allergies will be happy to know that Spindel also gets rid of almost all washing powder and softener left in your clothes after washing. This little machine has a permanent place under my kitchen counter and I believe that if you try it, you will understand why I can’t live without it. IT IS AWESOME. SPECIAL!! TODAY ONLY: The 6.5kg Spindel is on special over at Takealot  for R1999 (usually R2599). You save R500! *Please note that this is NOT a sponsored post and it does NOT contain any affiliate...

BambiShoes Hair Colour Review

Obsessed. That is what I am. I am completely obsessed with BambiShoes semi-permanent hair colour. I discovered BambiShoes hair colour at the end of last year and I fell in love. So much so that I had to include it in my Best of Beauty 2015 post. If you want to add a pop of colour to your hair or go full mermaid, you have to check out this non-toxic, cruelty free, vegan-friendly product. The colours are vibrant and just plain gorgeous. I received beryl orchid, sapphire blue and amethyst purple to try out, but there are many more to choose from. And you can play around and create a shade that’s perfect for you. The colour is easy to apply, it doesn’t cause any damage and beautiful colour comes at a fraction of the price of professional applications. I also love the fact that I don’t have to use all my product at once (you only mix as much as you need). Yesterday I decided to add a little sapphire blue and amethyst purple to my hair (with hubby’s help). So mooi! All you need is your BambiShoes colour powder, conditioner, rubber gloves (as this stuff does stain), a mixing bowl and a colour brush (I found that applying it with my hands worked well). You mix the powder and conditioner, apply to dry hair, rinse and voilà… I love it!! Especially the purple. Seriously thinking of doing my whole head. I can’t stop staring at it. We also played around with the colours over the holidays. My little girl and I went for a pop of pink and my bestie opted for the...

Beauty: My favourite favourites of 2015

My sister often gets upset with me when I tell her about a product that I love. ‘But you said that one is your favourite?!’ She likes to give me the third degree. I try not to use the word favourite too often when talking about the things I love as there is just too many. There are a few products and services that stood out last year, so I have decided to share my favourite favourites of 2015 with you today. Let’s jump right in… Dermaceutic Mask 15 (and pretty much everything from this brand) If I had to choose just one skincare brand to use for the rest of my life, chances are that Dermaceutic will come up tops. I have raved about Mask 15 many times and I am still amazed by the results. Every. Single. Time. You can read my thoughts on the mask HERE. I have also been using Activ Retinol 1.0 and Turn Over. I will be posting a review on these two shortly. Keep an eye out as these products are amazing. REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial Want to wake up with smooth, bright, fresh-looking skin? Then this product is a must have. I love it. Pop over to read my full review HERE. BABOR New Skin Fluids Ampoule Concentrates FP Love. That is what it is. I used these ampules when I started at home derma rolling and my skin loves it. This product is definitely one of the top 5 best skincare products that I have ever used. Visible results almost instantly. Fresh-looking, plump and radiant skin. I would use these ampoules...
