Foreo LUNA Mini Review // Clarisonic Comparison

A few months ago we were sent a Foreo LUNA Mini (“Luna”) to test, but we didn’t want to review it until it was available for purchase in South Africa (which has only happened recently). The Luna is a facial cleansing device which uses transdermal sonic pulsations to provide an extremely deep, but gentle, clean. The pulsations rid the pores of impurities, which in turn reduce the likelihood of any blemishes coming to the surface of the skin. The pulsations also help refine the texture of your skin, leaving it softer and smoother. The Luna is made up of 1,300 touch-points,…

Favourite Five: Make-up Removers

I get bored quickly, especially when it comes to products I use every day. I like to switch up my routine and try different types of makeup removers, especially since it’s a relatively tedious task to begin with and if I’m using something new then I tend to have a little more patience with the process. I firmly believe in always taking ALL your makeup off before bed so I can’t be bothered with cleansers that don’t do the job properly. Here are my top picks of the ones that do.

London Calling

Keep Calm

So, next week I’m going to London. To shop. I’m not even going to pretend there’s any other reason for going besides burning a hole in my credit card at the new 6-story flagship H&M store in Oxford Circus (squeeee!) and attempting to stuff 30kg of new beauty products in my suitcase without getting arrested.

Before I get completely carried away with excitement, I thought I would share a few recent skincare purchases with you that will be waiting patiently for me at my brother’s flat when…

My Skincare Routine: Tamsin

Tamsin, Jules & Camilla

This week we’ll be introducing a new series about other people’s skincare routines. The idea is to share different products, cleansing methods, skin types and concerns with you beyond our own experience. First up is Tamsin, our bestie, who has beautiful, pale skin that is normal to dry. She worries about fine lines and congestion on her nose and chin. “I use Dermalogica’s range, which is all plant-based, and my skin loves it. It’s expensive but each product lasts 3-6 months so I save up and ask friends to bring it over from the UK, where it is cheaper. Your…

Beauty Spotlight: Clarisonic

Clarisonic Mia

The Clarisonic is a sonic skin cleansing tool which promises to clean the skin 6 times more effectively than manual cleansing alone (by that I mean using your hands only, instead of a washcloth or sponge, for example). Clarisonic have 5 different systems – the Mia, the Mia 2, the Aria, the Plus and the Pro. They also come with 5 different brush head options – normal, sensitive, delicate, acne and deep pore cleansing. I’m not going to list the differences between all the systems and brush heads now – you can learn more here. How does it work? It…
