Dermaceutic - C25 Cream

Hi guys . Hope you are all having a great week so far. Only 8 more days until Christmas... Yeah !

Today I am sharing my review on the Dermaceutic C25 Cream. As you know, I reviewed the Dermaceutic Foamer 5 Cleanser HERE . Today I am sharing my thoughts on the second product I tried in the range. Again, as much as I LOVE make-up ... I am a firm believer you need a great skincare routine to always look your best. 

The C25 Cream contains 25% stabilised s Vitamin C to protect collagen fibres while maintaining skin’s optimum moisture level. Vitamin A helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines along with Vitamins B5 and E to hydrate the skin and reduce water loss. This is a light cream that absorbs super fast into the skin too. 

The last few weeks I have started noticing little fine line around my eyes, it bugged me because my foundation  would always settle in those lines and drive me insane. And while I would like to age gracefully ... Lets be real...  you don't want to *LOOK* older than yo…

Half Moon Mani with Nails Inc & Tutorial

Hi guys ! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was busy with Christmas preparations. 

Today I'm sharing another fun Festive party look with your guys . This is a subtle fun half moon mani. This is another SUPER easy look to re-create . Again... As with my previous party look.. I have included a tutorial.

So onto the nails - 

For this look you'll need 2 nail polishes ( here I picked a metallic & a glitter polish ) & some french manicure strips . The two polishes I chose was Nails Inc Kings Road & Nails Inc Marylebone . Both are amazing polishes with great formula's. But as always , you can use different colours or even completely different colours for this. 

So onto the tutorial -
1. Paint your nails the first metallic colour 
2. Use the french manicure strip and place near your cuticle.
3. Use glitter polish for the bottom part , peel the sticker off and top coat. 

How was YOUR weekend ??

Revlon Pebbled Texture - Moroccan Oasis & Tahitian CoastMoroccan

Hi guys. Hope you are well. It's FRIDAY... and raining in JHB ... Yeah..  And Christmas is getting closer too... my favourite time of year.

So today I'm sharing to GORGEOUS glittery polishes from Revlon Pebbled Texture collection.  I got two of the 8 shades to show you. These are perfect for the Festive season , and holiday parties ... Or just chilling next to the beach with. These are PACKED with glitters, and are fully opaque in 2 coats. 

First up ... Moroccan Oasis .. 

And Tahitian Coast.. 

As I mentioned, since this is a VERY dense glitter polishes , they do have a texture. Revlon also sells a Matte top coat , that works perfectly with these polishes... That way they stay matte and your polish stays on better too.

Removal .. As with any dense glitter polish.. Takes a little bit of work. I would recommend you use the foil method to remove these polishes. 

These retail for R99,95 at leading pharmacies and most retailers . 

Which of these two are YOUR favourite ??? Any fun plans for…

Lapelle Issue 7

See what is in the latest issue of Lapelle Magazine, there are also many prizes to be won. One of the articles in the magazine is this one
1. Sleeping with make-up on Apart from the chemicals and potential allergens in some make-up brands, not washing it off before bed has devastating effects, such as clogging pores, disrupting natural repair and shedding (renewal), and drying out skin, leading to accelerated breakdown of collagen and elastin and even oxidative stress. Trust us: wash your face, every night.
2. Drinking – and eating – too little water Without water, skin dehydrates, gets damaged and ages quickly. Every cell in your body needs water to metabolise normally, which is why the eight glasses a day rule is one to live by. But there also seems to be some eating more water-rich foods purported better water absorption.
3. Squeezing pimples Trying to pop a pimple can do more harm than good: y…

Dermaceutic Foamer 5 Cleanser

Hi guys. Hope you are having a great week. I seriously can't believe it's Christmas in a few weeks... Yeah ! Next week I will share some gift guide ideas with you guys too, and some more nail tutorials.

So onto my review for today - The Dermaceutic Foamer 5 Cleanser. I'm am a huge fan of skincare, because, without great skincare, you don't have a great base for make-up. And in the end of the day I like my skin to look great WITHOUT any make-up too. In the end of the day, you want your skin to always cared for to age gracefully .. And this is MAGIC unicorn tears in a bottle. 

This is a foam cleanser & exfoliator in one. This works fantastic to refine the texture of your skin - This seriously makes my pores look smaller and my skin texture so smooth - I even had to stop myself to keep feeling my skin . 

It's also pretty user friendly... 2 pumps (or one but I prefer 2 ) morning and evening... I rub the foam into my face, and rise off. And voila... Gorgeous skin . 



Hair is an extension of skin and there exists many similarities between the management of hair and the management of skin. It is for this reason that Lamelle Research Laboratories has introduced a product range that encourages hair growth, stops hair loss and stimulates the skin’s ability to create new hair follicles. On average, people shed 50 to 100 hairs per day and an average scalp has about 100 000 hairs. Gradual thinning is a normal process of ageing however, hair loss may lead to baldness when the rate of shedding exceeds the rate of re-growth, when new hair is thinner than the hair shed or when hair is shed in patches. The Renokin Hair Revitalizing program contains three biomimetic peptides which inhibit hair loss, prevents stress induced hair cell death as well as activate the signal for hair growth. In addition, Renokin Hair Revitalizing program contains two vitamins which provides nutrition and enables increased blood flow to the scalp resulting on the formation of healthy hai…
