    Learn | How to treat maskne

    Back in the late 90s, when I was struggling with my skin, did I ever think that I would be facing the same skin problems all over again in 2020.

    News | Happy birthday, Placecol

    In uncertain times like these, it’s always lovely to be able to celebrate milestones. 40 years in business for a local skincare brand is certainly something to celebrate.

    Review | Thoclor

    This is possibly my most over due post, ever (sorry, Stuart and Cat). I first discovered Thoclor nearly a year ago, and have been impressed with it since day one. Thing is that it’s a pretty science-heavy formula, and I have been quite intimidated by it.

    Review | Filorga NCEF-Reverse Eyes

    I must be honest; I don’t usually use eye cream. I just use my serums right up to my lash line, and I’ve never had an issue. But when the new Filorga NCEF-Reverse Eyes landed on my desk, I had to give it a try.

    Review | Claire Hill

    I was recently contacted by a brand new arrival in South Africa – Claire Hill. This anti-aging Ozzie brand had me at their packaging; simple, chic and understated. I’m not one to be sold on packaging, but the airless pumps and simple design really caught my eye (also, my new bathroom is white, so…).

    Review | Dermaceutic Sun Protection

    Ok, so I’m not going to lie; it took some doing to drag me away from my beloved Elizabeth Arden Great Eight to test some new sunscreen, but for Dermaceutic, I was willing to do it.
