The Brush Cleansing Dream Team

You know you’re the world’s biggest beauty geek when a silicone brush-washing glove excites you. I’ve had my eye on the Sigma Spa Brush Cleasning Glove for a couple of months now, and finally decided to bite the bullet and treat myself (I also bought one for Jules for her birthday and she literally squealed when she opened it). The glove has two sides: one for eye brushes and one for face brushes: There are variety of textures and surfaces which perform various functions, ie wash, refine, rinse and shape. The glove itself is incredibly soft and much more flexible…

Summer Must-Have: Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Bronzing Beauty Balm SPF 30

I will forgive whoever named this product with the world’s longest name, but ONLY because I like it so much. I bought this after reading Tori from Kiss, Blush & Tell’s glowing review (Tori, you are my biggest enabler and I feel that you should know that). Stila bills this offering as a high-definition, age-defying beauty balm which contains innovative micro-spheres that hide skin imperfections and reduce wrinkle depth by up to 84%. It has also enriched with a particular blend of ingredients which have been shown to reduce inflammation, improve texture and stimulate collagen production. Well I don’t know about…

Green Beauty: Plant a tree with rubybox

rubybox and greenpop

It’s not always easy to be environmentally friendly, and beauty is a big culprit – who knows how many cotton pads, tissues and earbuds I’ve thrown away over the years, nevermind all that water down the drain from obsessively washing my face and my hair. Natural and organic products are becoming more common as brands evolve to meet the needs of a more conscientious consumer. It’s easier than ever to treat the planet with the same love and care that you treat your skin, and this month rubybox are taking it one step further. For every R600 (or more) spent…

Style36 BeautyBox

Style36 BeautyBox - Shop Now

I spotted a tweet from Style36 (previously 36Boutiques) the other day about a special deal on their new BeautyBox (R75 instead of the usual R95) so I decided to order one and see what it was like. It arrived earlier this week (delivery is always free and fast from them which is a big thumbs up in my book) but, to be honest, it was a little bit “meh”. It draws obvious comparisons to rubybox but this was a once-off “First Edition” purchase; no mention has yet been made of a subscription offering. It’s very difficult to compare them based…

Valentine's Day The Wearable Red Lip

Happy Valentine’s Day, darlings! We hope you have a love-themed evening planned, whether you’re going all out with your other half or eating pizza on the couch with friends, make sure you give them an extra special squeeze and tell them you love them.

For those of you headed out on the town, you’ve probably got your outfit all planned already but what about your make-up? Camilla and I are big fans of a classic red lip, especially on Valentine’s Day, although it’s not always…
