Introducing the Foreo LUNA™ 2

Foreo Luna 2 - Dermastore - All Dolled Up

There are a few companies in the world who have turned their industries upside down through innovative thinking and a refusal to settle for the status quo. Apple, Uber, Virgin, Netflix and Warby Parker are all names you probably know but another industry disrupter you might not have heard of is Foreo (“For Every One”); a beauty and wellbeing technology company whose mission is to create groundbreaking, accessible solutions that bring happiness and benefit to our everyday lives. Most well known for their game-changing silicone toothbrushes and vibrating cleansing devices, this trailblazing brand is now available in SA through Dermastore…

The Ultimate At-Home K-Beauty Facial

Korean Beauty South Africa

If you follow us closely on the blog or on social media, you’re no doubt aware that I’m having a serious Korean beauty obsession right now (me and the rest of the world). The foundation of the Korean approach to skincare is really about maximum hydration, so it’s no wonder that all the hydrating toners, essences, ampoules, serums and masks are right up my street. Last night I decided to give myself a facial using all of the bits and pieces I’ve accumulated recently and it gave my skin such a gorgeous glow I thought I should share it with…

Dermapen Aftercare: Tips & Product Recommendations

At the risk of being extremely repetitive, I want to tell you all again how happy I have been with the results of my ongoing Dermapen treatments. 18 months and about 8 or 9 procedures down the line, my skin is noticeably firmer, fine lines are reduced and my pigmentation is significantly lighter. It’s not the most fun in the world – the treatment is uncomfortable and your face is on fire for 24 hours afterwards – but it is 100% worth it. Caring for your skin in the days after Dermapen is an important part of managing any discomfort…

SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight Review & Giveaway

SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Overnight Renew Review | All Dolled Up

It’s quite rare for Jules and I to test the same products as we have such different skin types. Whilst I am drier, blemish prone and quite sensitive, Jules’ skin is oiler, dehydrated and can tolerate potent active ingredients. With that being said, the only active ingredient that Jules has never quite gotten on with, and the ingredient I haven’t been able to use at all, is glycolic acid. We have both traditionally experienced very reactive responses to it, and for that reason, we have steered clear. Until now, that is. SkinCeuticals recently launched Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight; a new…

5 Ways to Tackle Pigmentation

Antioxidant serums I’ve harped on about the importance of topical antioxidants for a couple of years now, ever since I started using one under my sunscreen halfway through a Greek island holiday and it stopped my tan in its tracks. Having that kind of tangible proof that antioxidants slow down sun damage is the reason I’m so evangelical about them – it can be very difficult to measure the effects as it’s more of a long term investment in your skin rather than something that gives you an immediate result. Luckily I did see them though, which is why I’m…

Review: Dr Dermal Cosmeceuticals

Dr Dermal Cosmeceuticals

I don’t know about you but I had never heard of Dr Dermal before we got an email from the PR asking us if we wanted to try anything from the range. After a quick bit of research, I learned that the brand ticked two of my preferred boxes for skincare: the cosmeceutical range was developed by a team of skincare professionals (rather than a makeup or fashion brand) and it’s a proudly South African company! So, I requested three products to try and here’s how it went:

Camilla’s Little Black Book of Beauty

I am often asked where I go for certain beauty treatments, so I thought it might be helpful to create a little directory for you. I have listed all of the places and people that I visit on a regular basis for the various treatments that are integral in keeping this show on the road! These are all Cape Town based, obviously, but if you’ve got recommendations for salons/therapists in other parts of SA that you’d like to share, then please let me know in the comments section below.
