clicks and dischem for R105

I have wanted this product ever since it came out
as an alternative to lip stick or lip gloss that would
actually stay on my lips and not transfer
anywhere during the day.I love this product! it
really does everything it claims to do! it is really
pigmented and easy to apply with the pen type
design and it lasted me for 8 hours with
inbetween eating and drinking. The balm creates
an extra shine to the colour and also adds a little
extra moisture. It is scentless once applied to the
tips and it is so feather light you actually forget it
is there! when i drink it doesnt transfer which is
amazing. what i would have liked with the balm
though is for them to have a screw mechanism to
turn the balm up and down instead of having it
just stitting up like it does so just a tip when you
pull off the cap off the balm side be very careful
also when applying the balm afterwards do not
press hard as the balm is very soft and it will
break off. another tip ensure you expoliate your
lips before applying otherwise the dead skin on
the lips will make your lips have dark and light
patches all over which is not sexy lol but all in all
you will need to try this product! i will definately
be going out and buying more colours

June Glambox

This month the glambox theme was forgetting the cold and keeping the glow and sexiness even while wrapped up for winter taking care of skin care, lips and feet. The box contained:

1.A 50ml avon solutions face cream(there where 5 variants each 1 for specific skin types) (RSP between R155 to R99 depending on which one you recieved)
2. 8 50ml sample sackets of the day and night cream of all the avon solutions ranges so glamistas could test which one was best suited for their skin type
3.A Maxitan wipe which works for enhancing skin tone to a natural sunkissed look all year round recommended for tan lines and touch ups.( RSP R80 and can be purchased from the glambox website) or a maxilipz wild rose lip balm( RSP R25)
4. Alila lipstick in bronze( RSP R120) or a red black opal lipstick( RSP R89.95 at selected foschini and edgars stores)
5. 50 ml PEDI-relax anti rubbing cream(RSP R80 at pharmacies)

I thought this month was a great box my favorite being the alila lipstick. It was all rounded catering for all body needs. Many people complained that the lipstick and foot cream where repetitions of past products but they where repetitions for the same brand but not the same products in the range like the lipstick last time was red and not bronze and the pedi-relax was the moisturizing cream and not the protection one. people also said that the bronze was not the correct shade for there lips but i thought it was great as it gives lips a warm look perfect for winter and it looks really dark in the container but when applied to lips it give a light shimmery look. The tan wipe i wouldn’t naturally use but it is something i would use for fun as the concept of these boxes is to try new things. Also the cards that it comes with every month has improved as they now provide you with information on where you can purchase these products which was a very nice touch. If you havent tried glambox i really recommend you do! this month we received 4 full size products which are valued way over the R100 you pay for subscription.

Cettua “Before Having Date” face mask

The pack contains 2 sachets with masks in it, so you have a back-up too. This specific one is to minimise fine lines and wrinkles by pumping collagen into your skin just before a big
night out.

Other masks you can try out is:
After Night Fever Mask – Revitalises and nourishes your skin
Pore Control Essence Face Mask – Cleans and refines the pores on your skin
Trouble Clear Essence Face Mask – Controls oily skin while it soothes and clears spots
My Bright Face Mate Under Eye Patches – For minimising dark under eye circles, puffiness and those nasty fine lines.

Cettua is a hypo-allergenic and dermatologist
tested skin care range and is designed
especially for younger skins in terms of price,convenience and packaging. All of them retail at R49,99 and you can find them at Clicks stores.
An interesting point about the masks – the masks are made from cotton. Why? These cotton sheets are very effective at delivering nutrients into the skin and it maintains a tight seal on the skin also. They also prevent bacteria
from your fingers from being passed onto the skin. Lastly they make sure the products and ingredients are evenly distributed over your face.

It was my first time trying a sheet mask like this as I think this is the only 1 available in SA. And I must say it was great much better then the normal cream or gel masks. It fits perfectly onto the skin and what I love especially is you can feel that the formula has entirely absorbed into the skin because the mask will feel dry it takes 2hrs to fully absorb into the face but the instructions recommend to leave it on for 30 mins but I like to leave masks on for longer if I don’t feel any irritation on my hyper sensitive skin. So these products work great if you have sensitive skin like me. Once I took the mask off my skin felt really soft but a bit sticky but the stickiness went away in the morning so that was great my skin also felt much more silky and soft the next morning so I was very pleased with that

The verdict: I would definitely recommend this product it is great. You really have to try them and see for yourself 🙂

Payot Hydra24 Crème

Beauty care and well-being for women seeking comfort and softness for their skin, this rich, generous cream melts delightfully on the skin for intense hydration and long-lasting comfort.The innovative hydro-dermo-regulating complex provides continuous hydration with its hydro-diffusing drip system that helps the skin preserve and maintain its natural moisture level while reinforcing its defences against the first  signs of ageing.

Results: From the first application your skin feels like it is brimming with  moisture, ideally hydrated and instantly refreshed. It looks younger, healthier  and glowing with vitality

The verdict:I am generally very sceptical about deviating from my face cream brand as i have super sensitive skin and when i put on many well known brands my skin instantly flairs up and starts to burn also brands who offer hydra power tend to leave my skin greasy and shiny. But not this product it comes in an amazing glass bottle and a really nice box so when you look at the packaging you know it is high end. it smells amazing. and it works well for my sensitive skin it definitely does hydrate my skin upon first application and actually leaves my skin soft and smooth and not oily feeling. i would definitely recommend this product!

Get down to your nearest dischem to buy 1 as i believe they are currently having a launch special.
