My Review

Clarins is a very trusted and popular brand, and what I absolutely love about this French Skincare company is that they are always one step ahead of the game! This moisturising toner has so many active ingredients that are good for your skin, and help prevent premature ageing. It instantly has a cooling effect on the skin, which also helps reduce any puffiness that occurs during the night.

This silky soft serum absorbs beautifully into the skin once applied. It is a very light liquid type of serum. I love that it is not oily on the skin, it also smells divine, and you can instantly notice a slight glow.

My Review

There is nothing quite like a mini ‘eye lift’ after waking up to see your puffy eyes after a lack of sleep. They do say, dynamite comes in small packages right? This little bottle has a lot to offer. It instantly takes away the puffiness from your eyes, and you don’t even have to use a lot of product, which means it will last long.

My Review
Have you ever heard of a product that can hide blemishes, give you a natural coverage, and at the same time is actually good for your skin? I have been wondering where this BB cream has been all my life. It is lightweight with a satin texture. The cream smoothes onto the skin very easily and is also very moisturising. Definitely a new favourite!

Product 5: Mario Badescu Botanical Skin Scrub

All Skin Types


Say goodbye to build-up and banish dullness with the newest addition to the Mario Badescu line of skin care products. This scrub is formulated to refine and perfect your complexion with a unique combination of finely ground Ecuadorian Ivory Palm seeds and nourishing botanicals, including Ginger, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Aloe, and Coconut. This gentle, gel-based formula sloughs off the dulling dead skin cells that can lead to breakouts or cause skin to look lifeless and aged, helping you to achieve clearer, younger-looking, more radiant skin. Paraben free formulation.

My Review

The name of this scrub is enough to love it. ‘Botanical – Exfoliating – Scrub’ sounds like a breath of fresh air to me, and thats exactly what it is. This gorgeous new scrub is part of the Mario Badescu skincare range (which will be on very soon!) It is perfect for this time of the year as we start moving into winter, and our skin takes some major strain. This gentle scrub removes any dry skin that appears on your face, whilst leaving you with a moisturised, plumped glow. Lets just say, it’s a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Product 6: Charcoal Konjac Sponge 


The Bamboo Charcoal Sponge should not be underestimated. This little guy gets down to business by effectively cleansing the skin of dirt and grime while helping reduce blemishes. Perfect for teens and those with problem skin.

Konjac is actually a pure natural sea vegetable, sort of like a potato, that is mineral rich and free of any additional colorants. Bamboo charcoal draws out impurities and toxins without striping, leaving the skin detoxified and balanced.

My Review

Bamboo has tons of healthy benefits for your skin. And this product is your new best friend. You can use it in the shower, or along with your favourite face wash. It is very gentle on the skin. In-fact it actually exfoliates the skin, but at the same time has quite a ‘seaweed’ texture which is very soothing.
