    The monthly favourites are one of MY favourite posts on your site.
    Aside from being very entertaining (your facial expressions sometimes guys, lol), I really do get a lot of information from here. I love recommendations from the both of you, but especially Jules, as I have a very oily skin myself.

    In this video I love the Sigma brush! Any alternative not breaking the bank? (so close to December is always a bit of a struggle.)

    Hope you guys keep on posting as I’ll keep on reading and learning.

      Thanks for your kind words, Niecole! So glad you enjoy our videos ๐Ÿ™‚ Although not a dupe, the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (available at Clicks) is one of my favourite foundation brushes and it’s only R180. Treat yo’ self!

        Thank you Jules!

        Oh, I plan to treat myself, no better way to spoil myself for Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks so much!!!!

    I got the Body Shop SPF solely on your last recommendation (also have an oily T zone, especially in summer) and it is a Game.Changer. so thank you for that!

    You gals do the BEST favourite videos – always SO entertaining, succinct and honest. I’m with you both re the Clarins Self-Tanning Milky-Lotion – what a fantastic and easy to use self tanner.

  • Bianca

    Great video! Also LOVE the Clarins self tanning lotion – fool proof tanning for us pale girls! You’ve got to get on the Nimue SPF train – Am an oily gal myself and I love this.

    Thanks ladies! Time to reset my Xmas budget! Camilla what shadow are you wearing on your eyes? It is beautiful!!

    • Camilla

      Ah, thanks Caryn. It’s MAC Sable – one of my absolute favourites!

  • Jay

    Hey ladies, quick question, what is the best way to apply the Clarins Milky Lotion without it getting blotchy or streaky?

    • Camilla

      Hi Jay. I would recommend exfoliating your skin in the shower beforehand – the exfoliating mitts from the Body Shop do a fantastic job. Then make sure your skin is completely dry before application, and massage the lotion in thoroughly. I then apply a moisturiser onto the drier areas (knees, elbows, ankles) to make sure that the colour blends seamlessly. I hope this helps!

  • Jay

    Awesome, thanks so much, will give it a go! ๐Ÿ™‚
