My Bright Skin Morning Routine

Last year I received a gorgeous parcel from Human+Kind and I couldn’t wait to dig in. You can have a look at my brand focus post HERE.

Here’s a quick recap if you don’t know the brand:

Human+Kind gives us multi-tasking, no-nasties products for skin and hair and this award winning Irish brand is available at Clicks, Wellness Warehouse and selected Woolworths and Stuttafords stores.

My two favourite facial products are the All-in-One Wash Off Facial Cleanser and the Age Spot Remover Skin Lightening Cream.

I have been using these two products every morning for the past few months and I couldn’t be happier. My skin looked beautifully bright and glowing from the first use and the longer I used them, the brighter my skin became. Read a little more on both of these beauties below.

Human+Kind All-in-One Wash Off Facial Cleanser

This rich, petro-chemical free cleanser is extremely gentle yet effective. It is a luxurious cream cleanser that is 98.5% natural and the active ingredients include organic sunflower oil, organic jojoba oil, cold pressed wheat germ oil, natural vitamin E and arnica oil. My skin is left feeling clean, soft and clear. My sensitive skin loves it. This is definitely my go-to morning cleanser. And yes, you have to wash your face in the morning. Sweat and oil, people. Wash your face. I digress… I tried this cleanser a couple of times in the evening and it is very effective at removing make-up as well. I finished my tube about a week ago and promptly repurchased it. And my fellow beauty bloggers will know exactly what a repurchase means… it’s true love. A 100ml tube of cleanser retails for between R125 and R150. With the cleanser you also receive a deep cleansing cloth. It is the softest face cloth that I have ever felt and I love it. These cloths are also sold separately in packs of two and my gran has made me promise to get her a pack for her birthday.

Human+Kind Age Spot Remover Skin Lightening Cream

This moisturiser is been specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, discolorations and dark blemishes of the skin. It is safe to use twice a day and is suitable for all skin types and tones. I have been using it every morning since receiving it last year, as well as most nights. I am down to my last drop and it is sad indeed. It lasted very well. It leaves my skin feeling cared for and nourished. It absorbs very well and my skin is left feeling comfortable and looking radiant. The tone of my skin has definitely evened out since I started using it and if you are looking for a product to brighten your complexion, this is it. The only reason I haven’t rushed to the shops to repurchase just yet, is because I have a drawer full of moisturisers to work through (which includes another by Human+Kind) and I have to give them all a fair chance. In saying that, there is a very good chance that my next Clicks rewards voucher may go towards another tube. It really is that good. And by good, I mean great. A tube will set you back between R200 and R240.

I have to make a special mention here… I have been mixing it up a bit and alternating between my Foreo Luna (you can read my review HERE) and a konjac sponge when doing morning cleanse. I have been dying to try a konjac sponge for ages and the people from Mira Dynamics were kind enough to send me one to try.

I’ve really been enjoying it. The sponge is super soft and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. It works very well with the Human+Kind cleanser.


Valentine’s Day shopping made easy with Woolworths Online

My sister admitted to me this morning that she may be addicted to online shopping. I think we share this sentiment. Why would you waste fuel driving to a busy shopping centre, get all hot and bothered searching for parking and then stand in endless queues when shopping has become so easy? Who has the time and energy for that? I am a mom and I work full time and I am most definitely not the type of person who likes to wander a shopping mall. To be honest, I hate it.

Luckily I don’t have to put myself through that very often anymore as I can sit in the comfort of my home (or office… sorry boss!), browse the vast variety that most online stores have to offer these days, and then have my purchases delivered to my door.

Woolworths makes this task even easier as they have such an amazing variety offered on their online store.

Valentine’s Day is coming up and the husband and I are taking full advantage (he just doesn’t know it yet). We haven’t been on a date night in months and I decided that this one should be extra special. Why not?

I also decided that it’s the perfect opportunity to get dressed up. Problem? I have nothing to wear. Solution: Woolworths.

Woolworths has such a stunning assortment of dresses online that I am really struggling to choose. I have decided to go for a little black dress, but I’m still struggling. I’ve narrowed it down and now have the difficult task of choosing one of these 5 stunners:


Now what about shoes?! How can I not get a new pair of shoes when I get a sexy new dress?


Of course no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories. How do I choose Woolies, how?



Woolworths really offers an extensive variety of the newest fashion trends and classic looks that you will never be left wanting. Have a browse for yourself and have a look at their fabulous range of women’s dresses, shoes and accessories.

And because the day of love is around the corner, Woolworths has made sure that they cater for those intimate moments too ;) They have a wonderful range of lingerie available on their online store.

For all your Valentine’s Day and fashion needs, head over to Woolworths Online.

And now you have to excuse me, my date night shopping waits…
