It has been a refreshing and loving skin relationship with my beloved Celltone products for the past month or so. I have been using the products from the Celltone facial luxury pamper pack and the experience has been a worthwhile one. I absolutely love trying out new skin care products that can improve my skin care routine, keeping it youthful, clear and healthy which is why I loved the Celltone facial products. Some of the products have done extreme wonders for my skin, while others weren’t as effective.
The products are great to use in your skin care regimen for any season in the year. The range of products have been created to hydrate, soothe and moisturise your skin leaving it looking smoother, brighter and clearer. Some of my favourite products included the facial wash, exfoliator, toner and moisturiser.
The complete Celltone Facial Luxury Pamper Pack includes:
- Facial wash – Moisturising Facial Wash
- Exfoliator – Invigorating Exfoliating Scrub
- Cleanser – Soothing Cleansing Lotion
- Toner – Alcohol Free Facial Toner

Often we are so concerned about keeping our skin, hair and body looking top shape, that we may forget that our hands and nails need the exact same tender, loving, care. Your hands and nails need to be taken care of at all times, especially because you do everything with your hands.
Since you can’t avoid the fact that people will see your hands whether you like it or not, here are some important and great nail care tips to help you take good care of your hands and nails.
As Summer begins to approach in South Africa it means bright and bold lips will be making a seasonal comeback. It is the season that allows one to rock the sassiest lip colours and make a statement. After visiting The Body Shop I came across the most show-stopping and mesmerising matte lip colours that I can’t wait to rock during the Summer.
I’ve always been a fan of The Body Shop and their makeup, because of the cruelty free policy and how it treats my skin so well. The skincare store has recently launched its first matte lip liquid colours. The range includes 12 bright shades with each shade having a rich creamy colour.
Taking care of your face is a beauty skill that should come naturally. As we get older simply using water and soap is not adequate enough to maintain your face’s flawless look. With age it has become extremely important to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise the face.
And with Summer just around the corner having a natural, dewy and glowy skin is the new beauty look of the season. I recently tried out some face masks from Clicks and I must say these are going to be my favourite products for the Summer and all year long. I doubt I’ll be using facial sheet masks anymore because the result is obviously not the same.
I am no makeup artist, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m the worst when it comes to makeup. I still know how to beat my face when necessary and with the practice I must my makeup game is slowly improving. However, I must admit I’m still very faulty and I have never really been able to the master the whole contouring technique. Alas, makeup artists and vloggers have come to our rescue and showed us that you don’t have to slay by knowing how to contour. Instead strobing (highlighting) is the new and best way to get those facial features popping. I must admit strobing is way better than contouring for me, because it is a more natural and stunning way of highlighting a person’s gorgeous facial features.
“So, what is strobing? Strobing is actually not a new technique; it’s been around in the makeup game for many years—you might know it as highlighting. Strobing is basically highlighting to the extreme and letting the highlight define your facial features without the use of bronzer or contour. The main goal for strobing is to concentrate a highlight on the highest points of your face, where light would naturally hit, to create a “glow from within” dewy, radiant complexion.” – Elaine Barnett (The EVERYGIRL)
A change of season often leads to the change of doing things from the way you dress, to the activities you do and to how you treat your skin. Winter days mean making sure that you keep the skin and face hydrated at all times. I know Winter is almost coming to an end and I should have shared this secrets way before, but it’s never too late. Winter will be back again next year and these tips will still be very much relevant.
My skin type is what I would consider being a combination/normal. Meaning it is both oily and dry, so because of the cold it means on some areas, in particular my face I need to moisturise it more than I would during the dewy Summer days.

I’m basically loving all things nude, gold and brown this season. I’ll probably still be obsessing over these colours come Summertime as well. I love how these colours can look absolutely flawless and mesmerising on every skin tone. All of my current favourite makeup that comes in all shades of gold, brown and nude are from drugstores. Makeup from drugstores has got to be a favourite for everyone because this is where you can find the best, the prettiest and the most fresh makeup at the most affordable prices.
You know when you apply your makeup and it is just on point, but then you don’t have setting spray to keep that radiant look throughout the day. Well I decided to make my own makeup setting spray, so I can save money to buy more makeup. I did this by reading different articles and researching what works best and what doesn’t. I finally found a method that I think works well which I’ll be using for as long as I am wearing makeup.
The secret ingredients are just roses and glycerine, I have been using my home-made makeup setting spray for about two weeks now and I must say it works like any other setting spray. I was rather impressed with the results because my makeup did last for a while on my face. So I have decided to share this newly home-made, life-changing DIY with all you beautiful people. Even if you don’t wear makeup on the regular, you can use the spray as a mist to keep your face hydrated in all seasons.
- One rose ( preferably from a garden.)
- A spray bottle.
*For my South African readers you can find glycerine at Clicks stores for only R15.95 and you can use glycerine for almost anything, this little bottle is pretty magical.
After the MAC Vibe Tribe collection launched in the USA in mid-May, many make up lovers have been patiently waiting to get their hands on it and it is almost time. The collection is expected to hit South African and international stores this week. Although the name of the collection and the main inspiration behind the make up collection does not sit well with me, I am nonetheless excited about some of the products.

Nothing is more frustrating than realising you’ve only got 30 minutes until you’re suppose to be at work or at your next lecture leaving you with only 15 minutes to do your make-up. So during the week I opt for a more natural and less look with medium coverage on my face, because I just never have enough time to apply a full face of make-up.
So here are my go-to makeup products that I use and some tips to help you enhance your makeup so you look extra flawless.
