How Much Is Your Face Worth?

If you’re anything like me (which, for the sake of your bank balance, I sincerely hope you aren’t), most mornings start with trying to decide what to put on your face.

Shopping Spree

So, last Friday marked the end of my three-month-long spending freeze; 90 days of torturous new-product-bans after a rather expensive trip to the UK in April. To celebrate, I went and blew my monthly budget at the Waterfront (well, what did you expect?!) and here’s what I bought: Clarins I’ve been wanting to try the Instant Eye Make-up Remover Lotion (125ml for R250) after seeing it recommended on a few trusted blogs for fast removal of stubborn mascara. I have NO patience when it comes to getting off my eye make-up and I invariable scrub at my eyes with whatever…
