My top 5 products of the moment

Being fortunate enough to have exceptional brands at my disposal, my top 5 products regularly change but I thought I would share what is currently on my 'best' list. Next week I'll be choosing some different products to try but for now, here goes:

Cleansing - I am hooked on Neutriherbs' Black Charcoal Soap (R180). As someone who couldn't imagine cleaning my (dry!) face with soap as I imagined it would strip it of natural oils and dry it out even further, I have been proved wrong. This soap nourishes my skin while leaving it squeaky clean. I love it so much that I've gifted it to some close friends and family who are now equally hooked. The bar is 200g which means it lasts a long time too so aside from being fabulous, it is also cost-effective.

Exfoliating - I am currently rotating between Skin Creamery's Cleansing Powder (R315) (their entire range is a must-have!) and Naturals Beauty's Face Exfoliator (R115) from the Essential Collection. Both leave my skin feeling well, exfoliated and yet nourished.

Serums - I am addicted to Lamarie's Eye Serum (R240) and use it on my lip area too. It absorbs beautifully and my skin loves it. I also rotate between Neutriherbs' Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C serums (R260 each or R750 for 3) for the rest of my face and can understand why these have become a best-seller on our store. I have to also give a shout out to Naturals Beauty's Wrinkle Banisher (R90) and Anti-ageing Serum (R205) as I often go back to these too.

Moisturiser - most of you know by now that I wax lyrical about Lamarie's Bio-Moist Cream (R600). I have very dry skin and my skin can't get enough of this moisturiser. I love too that I wake up in the morning with happy, nourished skin which is important to me. Next I am going to be testing some of Elixir Fusion's gorgeous creams (such a lovely, affordable natural brand with so much to offer) and from what I've seen, think my skin will thank me.

Body - I am loving Neutriherbs' Coffee Body Scrub (R360) - it really works my skin feels very pampered afterwards.

Alright, I know I said 5 but I just HAVE to mention a product I am currently obsessed with - Stila's Stay All Day® 10-In-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm With SPF 30 (R555). I don't like heavy foundations and sometimes don't want to wear any but would like some coverage - this is it. My skin looks radiant and if I do add foundation, gives me a more polished look. As if I'm someone who knows what they are doing with their makeup (which is not me usually!). It works well on my dry skin too as it is nourishing...as the name says, a balm. And it doesn't hurt that it has spf 30 in it either. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

'Til next time,
