Oh would you look at that…Summer holidays have come and gone, believe it or not!! After taking a break over the exam and vacation season, I am more than excited to be back at working on my blog and all things fabulous! With that being said, WELCOME BACK to reading your first Booty and Beauty Blog post of 2016!!
I’m not entirely sure about all of you Beautiful Betty’s, but after a month of frolicking about in the sunshine, eating all the wrong, but OH SO DELICIOUS foods (as we tend to do in the holidays) and boogying up a complete and utter storm, ones face tends to lag in looking radiantly gorgeous and begins to sport the feeling of an almost shrivelled prune. NOT so fabulous, if you ask me.
Luckily, I have managed to resuscitate such facial behaviour with a few easy to use and affordable beauty finds. Affordable? Why yes Young Lass, you’ve read correctly!
First up is one of my favourites and I am rather sad to have jumped on the band wagon a little late with this one, but HEY, at least I didn’t miss the ride! I am in absolute awe of this product from Garnier. It was only released in South Africa a few months ago and goes by the name of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Sounds angelic, doesn’t it?
This Micellar Water can be used to remove make-up, cleanse and purify your skin without ANY rinsing and can even be used on the entire face, eyes and lips. What a bonus! It is used in the same way as you would do with toner by dashing a splash on a piece of cotton wool and wiping over all facial areas. Basically, it’s a mini face bath. What’s even better about this bottle of magic is that it’s super gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and jolly. Refreshed AND jolly? Quite a talented product if you ask me!!
Pure Active Micellar Water is suitable for sensitive to combination skin. This minty green coloured bottle is superbly big in size (400ml) and has a guarantee of 200 uses! Nothing quite like being large and in charge! A bottle of such bliss can be found at Dischem for R79.95.
Another favourite of mine happens to be 3 in 1 make-up removal cleaning wipes from Pure. These are absolutely fabulous and are perfect for cleansing and refreshing ones face during the super hot Summer days, and to of course remove make-up. These wipes are enriched with Aloe Vera and have a scent of this kind too. Expect your skin to be left feeling radiantly refreshed and smooth. A pack of 25 wipes retails for R19.95 at your local Checkers.
If you are needing a helping hand in the cleansing department, try out my beauty find of Facial Cleansing Sponges from Dischem for R14.95. These are super easy to use to remove make –up and to cleanse. Simply rinse in clear hot water when you are finished using these helpful little gems. Nothing like letting your sponges have a hot bath too, right?
Next on the list is none other than a few beautifully hydrating face masks from Mantagne Jeunesse. I have yet to try 2 out of the 3 that I have bought and will be posting my review on these once they have all been put to test. I can’t wait to share my thoughts on these with you. Each of these masks can be bought for R29.95 at Clicks. Totally winning at life right now, aren’t we?
I hope this post will leave your face feeling happy and refreshed and that you’ll be adding these to your family of skincare products.
Happy, happy face bathing, all you Pretty Petals!!
