Overnight Hydration Heroes

I was lucky enough to spend three days in the Karoo last week and, although it is the most beautiful, peaceful place in the world, it is also incredibly dry. By the time I got home on Sunday night, I felt as though every drop of moisture had been zapped from my body, so I went into damage control mode and whipped out every hydrating product in my arsenal. Here’s what I did to restore the balance: Face Jules and I recently received a few GLAMGLOW face masks from the lovely people at Metropolitan Cosmetics. Being a dry skinned gal, my eye was…

GIVEAWAY: Nuxe Luxury Hamper {CLOSED}

Nuxe Giveaway | All Dolled Up

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you know about Camilla and my obsession with Nuxe. Ever since purchasing their hero product, the Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil, from Style36 at the beginning of this year, we have been hooked on this naturally-derived French beauty brand. Our combined collection includes the incredible Rêve de Miel lip balm, the Rêve de Miel Hand and Nail Cream and the Anti-Age Try Me Kit. The lovely people over at Nuxe South Africa (visit their Facebook page here) took notice of our infatuation with their brand and kindly send us a few…

The Perfect Travel Kit: NUXE Anti-Age Try Me Kit

When Edgars stopped stocking NUXE earlier in the year Jules and I were so disappointed – we are both huge fans of the brand, and the fact that we could buy it locally instead of having to get friends to bring it from abroad was a real treat. Of course NUXE is available online at Style36, but they don’t carry the full line, and I like to play around with products a little bit in-store before I commit to buying them. Anyway, fast-forward to August, and Jules and I were happily shopping in the V&A Waterfront when I happened to…

Oh, Honey! Sweet Beauty Treats

Honey-based beauty products

Honey is having a real moment as a star ingredient in skincare and beauty products. It has long been acknowledged as having healing superpowers thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, making it perfect for treating skin conditions like acne and eczema. As well as being a powerful antioxidant, it’s also extremely nourishing and moisturising, plumping up skin and improving elasticity. Ok, I’m sold! Here’s my pick of the yummiest honey-based beauty products around (full listing after the jump):

UK Beauty Haul: Skincare

A couple of you asked to see a haul of all the goodies I bought in London when I was there in April, so here it is. Unfortunately for my bank balance, I bought so much stuff that I need to split it up into two videos (sorry I’m not sorry) so here is the first one which is all about skincare. Some of these products can be bought in SA (marked with a *) and where applicable I’ve supplied links to websites that will ship here, many of them for free. Let me know in the comments if you…

Beauty Oils

Beauty Oils

The nourishing properties of natural oils in skincare and beauty products have long been known, but it is only recently that oils have become a nightstand staple. The new generation of beauty oils are lightweight, hydrating and absorb ultra fast, making them the perfect multi-taskers for hair, skin and nails.

February Favourites

Sorry this is so late guys! We shot it at the end of February but then had problems getting it up on YouTube. Here are our February Favourites nonetheless. Camilla’s Favourites: Eucerin Hyaluronic Filler My skin has been so parched lately – I felt like no matter how much water I drank or how much moisturiser I put on, my skin was still dry and flaky. I had been dabbling with the idea of hyaluronic acid for a while, so this product couldn’t have been recommended to me at a better time. In short, I love it – for the…

Shopping Guide: 36Boutiques

36Boutiques Beauty

36Boutiques is an online shopping destination for fashion lovers that has been around for a couple of years. They stock a range of local and international labels, and while they specialise in clothing, shoes and accessories, they also have an amazing range of beauty products – many of them French pharmacy brands. The site is packed with cult beauty favourites (see below) and make-up must-haves from the likes of Bourjois, Stila and Essie. Towards the end of last week, I saw a couple of tweets saying that they had re-launched their site with a new design, so I promptly alerted…
