{I’ve Tried That} ♥ Me & Youth Quick Makeup Fix


Never heard of Me & Youth? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Well, I’m almost certain you’ve heard of (and possibly tried) Beauty Fix? The well-known brand recently changed their name and aesthetic. I ‘mist’ say (haha) I like the change. The packaging is beautiful and striking – just what a beauty geek like myself looks for in a product. Their ‘Quick Makeup Fix’ (R250) is free from animal testing, synthetic colours, fragrances, parabens, PEGs, ethanolamines, sulphates, mineral oils and silicones.

My 5 Favourite Beauty Bits from 2016


1. Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara

This budget beauty find first made an appearance on my “My Current Favourite Makeup Products” post last year. It’s been a firm favourite since taking up residence inside my makeup bag. This is the blackest black mascara in my ‘collection’. If you’re a fan of thick, full, fluttery lashes then this might be right up your alley. The formula is wet, but dries quickly and does a bang up job of lengthening and curling lashes. At any given time on average I’ll have about three tubes open, but for the past three months I’ve found myself mostly reaching for this one. Check out the post mentioned above for photos and more info. R159.95 at Foschini.

5 Favourites Friday ♥


1. Hands up if you hate applying a thick, rich moisturiser to your skin during the warmer months. I love nothing more than wearing this gel moisturiser before applying my makeup. My skin feels light and intensely hydrated after using this fast-absorbing gel. What more do you need or want? The new Neutrogena Hydro Boost range is specially designed to boost water levels in the skin and strengthen its moisture barrier to leave skin smooth, supple and glowing. This range showcases a unique Hyaluronic Gel Matrix which creates an effective hydration reservoir with a progressive release system that continuously delivers hydration throughout the day. The ‘Water Gel’ (pictured above) is formulated for normal skins and the ‘Gel-Cream’ variant is better suited for very dry skins. R155 at Foschini.

My Current Favourite Makeup Products


As a beauty blogger, I’m lucky enough to be sent countless new products to try out and review. However, not all these products make the blog and often get relegated to a forgotten drawer. But when a product excites me or I find myself constantly reaching for it then I always make an effort to post about it. In this case, I’ve been using three products which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed over the last month or so – a Birthday gift, my own purchase and a PR sample.
