Review : The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream

 Hi Lovelies ,

I will be sharing a review on The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream. If you don't know The Body Shop products its always a win for me, and if you on the look out for new shower cream this may be for you. 

I'm use to using various shower gels and the cream is something different to the usual , it's definitely more creamed based which is lovely just looking at it you will already picture how smooth it will go onto your skin. I'm also very drawn to the scent as it reminds me of a lingering perfume and love how it feels once applied in the shower. My skin is also very sensitive at times and found that I had no reactions when using the shower cream.

Why you should give the Shea Shower Cream a try :

  • Looking for something different than a shower gel , more creamy like than gel
  • Moisture Rich
  • The scent is amazing 
  • Soap free
  • Cruelty-free 
If you into anything nutty this one is for you. If you tried any of the shower ranges please pop your suggestions below I would love to give them a try. If you have tried the shea butter shower cream let me know your thoughts.

Have a lovely week further 😀

The Shea Shower Cream Retails for R115 (250ml) at The body Shop Stores or Clicks

Review : NIVEA Body Oil in Lotion Range - Cherry Blossom and Jojoba Oil

 Hi Beauties ,

Hope all is well on this chilly day. I have a new review for you guys - The NIVEA Body Oil in lotion Cherry Blossom and Jojoba oil . 

Perfect for winter discover Nivea's new Body oil in lotion where oils meet moisturizing lotion/cream. They come in three scents Rich Vanilla , Cherry Blossom or Orange Blossom.

I was excited to receive a lotion to test and more excited when I opened the package only to find out its the Cherry Blossom and Jojoba Oil lotion.

First Impressions - The scent was a winner from the first whiff and I was ever ready to apply it on immediately.   

The lotion is targeted for those with Normal to Dry Skin leaving your skin feeling smooth and smelling fresh with its delicate fragrance. 

What I've also noticed is that once the lotion is applied it does not leave a stickiness feeling like some Nivea lotions and can say that the oil in lotion does make it different when in contact on the skin.

Why you should give the NIVEA Body Oil in Lotion a try:

  • Moisturizing
  • Awaken your senses
  • No stickiness

Take the oil in lotion quiz and see which one is perfect for you http://quiz.r2digital.co.za/oilinlotionquiz/

You can find it at Clicks, Dis-Chem , Takealot , Woolworths Retails for about R58

Have a good rest of the week.

Review : The Body Shop - British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask

Hi Beauties ,

Today on the blog I have a awesome review The Body Shop - British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask 
 Everyone loves a good self pamper and it should include a good mask do you agree ? 

I loved the scent immediately , you can literally smell the rose extracts as you open the jar. What I also noticed that was different about this particular mask that you could see that is was infused with real rose petals. 

How to use : Once your face is fully cleansed , apply the mask on your face and keep on for about 5- min as stated then rinse with lukewarm water. You can keep on for longer , I did and had no side effects such as a rash or burning sensation (this is really depending on your skin type).

This mask for me was very different to the ones I usually use and more like a gel type (reminds me a bit of the drops of youth - sleeping mask ) and it felt very light on the when applied which I loved. My face looked fresh once I was done , I really need to get me more of the British Rose Range.

I also think this mask is perfect to apply before you on your way out it gives it enough time to give your skin that fresh dewy look in a few minutes.

Why you should give the British Rose Mask a try : 
  • Moisturizes Skin
  • Soothes and tone skin 
  • Refreshing gel texture 
  • 100% vegan
I rate this 5/5

You can purchase online https://www.thebodyshop.co.za/ for R390 
It might be a bit pricy for some but if you have extra to splurge its definitely worth it. Also go in store and ask for a sample if you not sure its for your skin type.  

If you have used the mask please leave a comment below I would love to hear your thoughts.

Beauty Tool : Rose Quartz Facial Roller

 Hi Beauties ,

I think this will be the first time I will be reviewing a beauty tool on my blog. I've been using this beauty tool - The Rose Quartz Roller for more than a year even before it really became a huge hype in South Africa. 

before we get to my thought on the Rose Quartz Facial Roller let me tell you what it actually is and what benefits comes along with using it.

The Rose Quartz roller is especially for lymphatic drainage and to improve skin elasticity.

Benefits when using the facial roller :

  • Reduces puffiness
  • Good for blood circulation
  • Helps to absorb oils or beauty products into the face
  • Smooth out wrinkles
  • Reduces stiffness and tension   
My thoughts on the facial roller :
I absolutely love it! When I don't use it for some time I can actually see the difference when not using it for a while. My favourite time using it when my face feels really tired/strained. It also really works well when applying serums and after a face routine.


I found this cool map on the internet to give you a guide how to use your roller.

I purchased mine from Sh'Zen , it now retails for R459. 

Please let me know if you love using the jade roller too comment down below what your favourite skincare tool is .

Review : Sukin Blemish Control Starter Kit

 Hi Beauties 


I'm back with an exciting review. I have been reviewing the SUKIN : Blemish Control Range Starter Kit over these couple of weeks.

The kit includes Clearing Facial Wash , Pore Perfecting Toner , Spot Banishing Gel and an Oil Free Moisturiser . The 4 step range is all you need to get your skincare journey started.

I was super excited to be part of this project as you all know how I love skincare and what made me more excited that it is a all natural range - 100% natural Vegan and Cruelty free.

The Sukin Blemish Control Range is packed with active ingredients and botanicals like eucalyptus , moringa , quince , pomegranate , tea tree , willow herb and salicylic acid - which are all ingredients to help reduce blemishes and the appearance of redness.

First Impressions Once Applied :

I love the fresh scents firstly of all the products in the kit. Once applied I had no reactions to any of the products. When using the toner (Step 2) I thought I would get a reaction as it smelled a bit strong on my opinion but safe to say it gave a refreshing feeling to the face once applied.

As the days went on I could see a possible breakout coming along and my cheek area looking a bit bumpy and after using the range the next morning the pimple coming didn't come out further and the bumps on my cheek were gone.

Final thoughts :

I am please to say that over the weeks of using the range I am very happy with the results and can see changes to my skin. It looks more blemish free and my skin 100% agree with the products. I also love that the scents are fresh and you can smell all the natural ingredients. So if you have Blemish prone skin this is the product to start with. 

I rate this 5/5 and would purchase.

Review : Clicks Skincare Collection - Rooibos + Anti-Oxidants SPF 15 Day Cream and 3-in-1 Facial Cleanser

 Hi Beauties

Today I have review on facial products from Clicks . I've been using it for a few months now and I'm very happy and thought I would share. 

I was on the hunt for a SPF but unfortunately my budget did not allow me to get the one I want so I came across the clicks skincare collection and I was very curious and like normal its always the packaging that gets me. I then purchased the SPF Day Cream and a facial cleanser because I ran out of facial cleanser. 

Clicks Skincare Collection - Rooibos + Anti Oxidants SPF Day Cream R69.99 (50ml)

  • Protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.
  • For normal and combination skin.
  • Contains Goodness of rooibos
because there is SPF in the day cream I feel that it gives a very matt finish once applied to the skin. I love the fact that your face doesn't feel super sticky like some sunscreen once applied I suppose it because its a cream containing SPF. There was once or twice that my skin did act up on the cheek area like little bumps but not major reaction , no burning sensation or so. I love the light scent it gives off.

Clicks Skincare Collection Rooibos + Anti-Oxidants 3-in-1 Facial Cleanser R64.99 (150ml)
  • Gel Cleanser.
  • 3-in-1 Cleanser.
  • Contains Goodness of Rooibos.
  • Removes Dead Skin Cells.
I really loved how soft this cleanser was while feeling the soft grains gently exfoliating your skin, the scent is also amazing after using it for some time I'm happy with the product.  

All in all I think the Clicks Skincare Collection is super affordable and I would like to test and try the other collections and product. It is super budget friendly especially the 3 for 2 promos.
I would purchase the rooibos brand again especially if I'm on a budget.
