My twin boys and I have been trialing the Bioderma Atoderm range for over a month now. Both boys being eczema sufferers were the perfect candidates to put this product to the test. And myself, suffering from the general dry/dehydrated skin that comes with age and winter am always keen to find an effective and non-greasy product. And this one ticks the boxes.
Last week Wednesday I attended the unveiling of a Fish named Faithful at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. What and who is Faithful you ask? Well, Faithful is a 5 m long by 2.5m high wire and plastic sculpture consigned by online eco-lifestyle and health retailer Faithful to Nature to highlight the impact of plastic waste on marine life as one of the organizations many plastic free July initiatives.
Dermalogica recently opened another concept store in Cape Town. This one being their smallest store yet and I recently attended the small, intimate launch at Somerset Mall. Don’t be alarmed, although tiny, size does not compromise service, and you will still be treated to the world-class experience, treatments and products synonymous with the Dermalogica brand. It’s a lovely little store, hosting the new look and feel and if you’re keen and in the area, pop by and pay them a visit at shop 201 Somerset mall opposite Forever New.
If you follow me on Social media you would have seen that I recently popped into the L’Occitane concept store at the V&A Waterfront for a skin hydration test. The test – which took less than 2 minutes – revealed me to have a normal/dry hydration level.
Recently – after spotting a special on the Alternative Aesthetics Instagram page – I decided to take my lash tint up a notch by adding a lash lift. This being my first time, I was a little unsure of what to expect but I must say I was very impressed by the results. Let me tell you more.
In March of this year, I attended the launch of an awesome Italian brand, Oway which will be hitting South African stockist this month.
This is an exciting brand, not only for their products but for their entire ethos. Oway, which stands for Organic Way is a brand dedicated to sustainability and offer cruelty-free (PETA certified) top quality products.
If you enjoy surfing and are looking for the perfect little spot to stay on your next surf trip or if surfing’s not your thing and you’re just in need of some time out, away from the hustle and bustle I recommend you look at Fork West Holiday Apartments in Elands Bay.
Not only are my hubby’s jokes dry but so his is scalp, so when asked if he’d consider reviewing the new Nivea Men Anti-dandruff Shampoo, he was only more than happy. Having suffered from a dry, itchy scalp for many years, we’re always on the lookout for a good and affordable product.
The Dermapen 4 is finally here, yip, my most favorite skincare device was recently upgraded and has finally arrived on SA shores – when I say recently I mean last year April – we’ve waited a long time for this baby. So imagine how excited I was to be invited by Natural Aesthetics to be one of the first in South Africa to give it a try.
Dermapen is a fantastic treatment and definitely one I think everyone should be doing from their mid-to-late 20’s to help fight off the signs of father time. If you want all the deets on Dermapen and the benefits, I did a full post on the treatment and benefits, here, so go have a squiz. This review will be based on my experience with the Dermapen 4 and will highlight the differences between the 3 and the 4.
