Nuts about this primer!

Max Factor primer 2

I happened to come across this Max Factor Primer last week while looking at the make-up that was on sale at Clicks. This primer was unfortunately not on sale, but is well worth it’s price. Primer has become one of my key make-up products in the morning and I always feel ready to tackle anything if I’ve applied it before my make-up. After application this primer sinks straight into my skin and instantly makes it feel matt. It also has an SPF of 20 which is perfect for when you are outdoors in summer (don’t forget your sunscreen and hat though). At the end of the day, my make-up still looks great and is firmly in place, without any hint of shine. It really does extend the wear of my foundation. This is a huge feat considering it’s summer here and the last few days have been sweltering hot. The ladies at Clicks told me that this is end of range, and if it is I am really sorry to hear that. It’s a fantastic primer that is affordably priced at R185. I may just have to go buy another one before they disappear for good.

Caramel & cream foam bath

In winter I can never get warm. My feet and hands always feel like ice cubes and all feeling soon disappears! Our house is freezing and when the sun sets, I get cuddled under a blanket (or two) and don’t move … Continue reading

Smitten with Carmex

Winter is here which means chapped lips that crack and are sore. I am not a fan of winter. I. Hate. It. I am, however, a fan of products that leave my lips feeling like a million bucks in winter. … Continue reading

The perfect treat(ment) for your locks

inoar argan oil


Argan oil has been THE buzzword in hair care for quite some time now. I’m a huge fan of argan oil and couldn’t wait to try out the Inoar Argan Oil. The first thing you’ll notice when you open the bottle is the amazing smell this oil has – it’s so comforting! The oil is nice and thick so you don’t need to use a lot of it. I usually rough dry my hair and then pour a very small amount into my hands, rub them together and smooth the oil evenly throughout the strands. Then I rough dry a little more and blow dry it. If I don’t feel like drying my hair I just smooth the oil evenly throughout the strands and leave it to dry naturally. Once I have applied this oil I never have to worry about my hair going frizzy. It feels silky soft and has that amazing smell all day! I have been really happy with the results I’ve achieved after using this treatment oil.

Inoar’s Argan Oil is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants and restores the shine and flexibility that your hair has lost. Repeatedly using styling products and tools (especially ones that heat up) can really damage your hair if you don’t protect it and nourish it. This treatment oil provides the moisturisation that your dry hair desperately needs and it does a great job at controlling frizziness!

You can order the Inoar Argan Oil from the Inoar website, by phoning (012) 686 7067 or emailing
