I’ve been using this baby right here for almost two weeks now.
The packaging is so bright, beautiful and attracting too. So portable and light, it’s light pink in color and the smell is fruity (Raspberry flavor) , fresh & nice.
Keeps the lips so soft and moisturized without leaving them dry nor chapped at the end of the day!
Loving the fact that it has some oils in it & glycerin too!

Thank you BB 🙂

Multimasking?

multimasking

I came across this article & thought it would be nice to share with other beauties re: multimasking. Have you ever heard of it or done it if so how did it help you kindly share.

Bizarre beauty trends come and go (who could forget the Kylie Jenner lip plumping phenomena), but those that really work, stick around.

This year’s biggest skincare trend, multimasking, exploded on Instagram and other social media in the last couple of weeks and has just about every beauty editor’s approval.

The perfect face mask would perform multiple functions – zap that blemish on your chin, hydrate the skin around your eyes, mattify your forehead, etc. But we all know that an all-in-one product like that doesn’t exist. So this sparked the idea: Why not use different masks on different areas of your face?

This means you can zap excess oil on your T-zone, while hydrating under your eyes, or treating blemishes on your cheeks. You can even throw fabric masks, nose strips and eye patches into the mix.

Why do we love it? Because it means you can customize your mask to work 100% for your skin’s concerns. You can target specific problems or areas, without taking a “one size fits all” approach. Genius, right?

Becca The One perfecting brush

The One perfecting brush
the-one-perfecting-brush
This has to be one of the quality brushes I’ve ever owned. This was added to my collection last week.
The packaging is so lovely: a dark brown box which had the dark brown box with a wooden like finish look in it with cream soft bristles said to be made out of a mix of natural fibers & goat hair.

This brush can be used to apply blush, shimmering powder, primer , liquid/ powder foundation, concealing, contouring or even strobing seems to be for keeps if it can do all wonders at one time, don’t you think? I can use it for many things, this brush I quote ‘a multi- tusk that cuts makeup application time in half by replacing 10 other brushes and tools’ unquote.

This brush is made from non-porous, high-quality natural hair which allows the product to sit on top of bristles without getting absorbed by the brush to its deeper end.

The One perfecting brush it takes pride & claims to be replacing these following brushes can you believe it;
I quote:
*A foundation brush
*Powder brush
*Contour brush
* Bronzer brush
*Stipple brush
*Blush brush
*Fan brush
*Concealer brush
*Kabuki
*Sponge
unquote

I have used this ONE brush to apply my blush, bronzing pearls and shimmering powder and I honestly give it 10/10.

I’m at my happiest that I have added this brush to my collection. It’s a must have not only saving you space for plenty brushes but delivers too!

It looks so big yet very light.

Palmer’s Cocoa Body Scrub

Palmer’s Cocoa Body Scrub

After using this product for almost four weeks here is my full review as promised.

I received this amazing product from Palmer’s20150806_104746

I’d like to start with the packaging which is eye catching, I love the earthy colors used which blends well with the product that is being advertised. You’d swear it’s something to be consumed that’s the effect it has.

I opened it & was struck by the nice cocoa butter smell it has, it’s so calming & fresh. I had to put it to good use there & there. Ran a warm bath, applied it all over my body massaging the areas like elbows, knees, breasts & legs. I could just fall asleep on my bath tub since it was already at night thereafter I rinsed off with warm water & applied a cocoa butter lotion. One of the good baths I’ve taken, I could feel the granules on my body as if I were at the spa in my own home.

I have been using this product which is Vitamin E enriched aiming to exfoliates, refines, polishes, moisturizes & soothes the skin. It’s almost finished but so far I’m loving it 🙂

My skin is soft, healthy and glowing too.

I wrote a beauty diary here on Beauty Bulletin which was featured on Palmer’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PalmersSA/posts/956893147707528 featured on Palmer’s Facebook Page.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – OPAL

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Opal

s1538107-main-hero-300

I fell in love with this shimmering skin perfector the minute I laid my eyes on it I had to have it. Entered a competition and boom my name was chosen.

As special and beautiful as it is it came in a choc brown box, it’s choc brown in color with a matte silver finish on top with BECCA engraved on it – royalty at its best! Fit for a princess 😉
It’s creamy powder luminizer that absorbs and reflects light for a superb natural glow, it adapts to one’s skin tone.

 

COx-PtnWsAAnz7M

It is said to be doing the following:
Find refined luminosity in any light—this formula features ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is never lost.
Unlike the traditional pressed powder method which simply mixes and compresses dry ingredients, this unique process blends pigments with proprietary liquid binders, resulting in unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color dispersion.
Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned, ultra-fine pigment pearls adjust to skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique glow.
Needed I say more?

This has to be yet again thee most good highlighters on the beauty world. This highlighter not only gives me a shimmery effect but blends well with any skin tone.

So portable and beautiful at first I did not want to mess it up that’s the effect it has, carried it in my bag for almost a week just admiring its beauty!

It completes and complements my make up!

Thanks to Beauty Bugle for running the competition which I was chosen as thee lucky winner 🙂

LCN Hand & Body Sorbet a must have indeed.

CO2cIvmXAAAP2L7

I’ve posted about this product last week after using it, courtesy of Beauty Bulletin here is a link : https://myblogzandimb.wordpress.com/2015/09/08/lcn-juicy-watermelon-hand-body-sorbet/

Friday the 11th September 2015 I received another package from Beauty South Africa of the same product but one with a pomegranate flavor which is out of this world. I swear these sorbet were made to give one cravings with the scent…

I love it more than the watermelon one which is good too in its special way!

Woolworths Love Your Skin Argan Oil Infused 2-in-1 Bath and Shower Oil

I received this bottle 3 weeks ago from Beauty Bulletin and have been using it ever since sadly though I will have to part ways with it since it’s almost finished!

20150908_064808The packaging is so lovely a clear bottle, with a blush and silver sticker and inside it’s a gold liquid from the outside I was convinced that it was just pure oil until I put it to test the same day it came. There i was thinking it’s oily & will leave a greasy residue on the bath tub but it did not it’s more of a shower gel than oil itself.

It has an amazing calming scent.

I’ve tried it in the bath tub and also in the shower it’s so amazing I did not have to use a bar soap, left my skin feeling fresh and looking healthy too. I am going to invest in this product as I have fallen in love with it. It’s also enriched with vitamin E leaving the skin thoroughly hydrated.

I am satisfied with this product it is really for keeps!

It’s like having a spa in the comfort of my own home.
