The only essential oil diffuser you’ll ever want by Organic Aromas

If you’re big into making your home smell as amazing as you keep it, then you’ve no doubt got a handful of diffusers and smell-good gadgets in your home. I, for one, have pretty much all of them; from the traditional ceramic tea light burners, to plug-in burners, to air purifiers that work with heat and water… you name it, I’ve tried them all.

But today, I’m here to tell you to throw them all out, because the Organic Aromas Nebulizing Diffuser for Aromatherapy is the only one you’ll ever need and the only one you will want to use in your home.

My Winter Bodycare Edit

My Winter Bodycare Edit

Prevention is better than cure! That’s why I like to get my skin ready for winter by adding a few products into my daily routine! Sure it takes a little extra work, but since this our second winter back in Jozi (Durban doesn’t really get all that cold), I’ve mastered what my skin needs and I don’t want to be caught off guard again… Dry patchy shoulders and dead skin, I’m talking to you!

Bathtime Bliss with Satiskin

Bathtime Bliss with Satiskin

There’s nothing I love more than soaking in a tub after a long day! A little bath-time R&R is like my daily indulgence, so I want to make the most of it with beautiful bath-time products. Satiskin were kind enough to send over a few of their goodies for me to try, including their Shower Gels. I’ve been using Satiskin Foam Bath since forever. It creates beautiful bubbles that last, it smells lovely and best of all, it’s affordable so I can use it every day! Their Shower Gels are the cherry on top! They come in a variety of fragrances so you can choose the one that suits your mood. What I love about the Shower Gel is that, when used with the Foam Bath, the bubbles last so much longer, and they leave my skin feeling soft and cared for. What could be better?

Dr Organic. Organic Skincare For Face, Body and Hair

Dr Organic. Organic Skincare For Face, Body and Hair

I was recently invited to try out some products from the Dr. Organic line, a range of organic skincare for face, body and hair that’s recently hit South Africa. I was keen to try out the body lotions, scrubs and hair range more than the skincare stuff, since I’m not a fan of trying out new products on my face. But the PR peeps sent over a few skincare goodies, and since I was running low, I thought I’d give them a bash. I actually really liked the skincare line more than I had expected to. Sometimes it’s nice to be pleasantly surprised! The Dr. Organic line consists of various ranges, including the Dead Sea Mineral, Snail Gel and the Moroccan Argan Oil range as well as a bunch of other lines that I’ve listed at the end of this post. Each range has been formulated with organic oils and all free from petrochemicals, additives, and preservatives that strip the skin of moisture and longevity. My favourite would have to be the Organic Dead Sea Mineral Face Wash, not only because it’s a great product, but I’m such a fuss pot when it comes to cleansers, since I’ve had my fair share of skin stripping experiences. This one is really gentle on…

We All Scream For Sun Screen

We All Scream For Sun Screen

When the sun comes out to play, make sure you’re protected! Every year, loads of new sunscreens are launched, so there is no excuse to go bare and damage your skin. I got to try out a few new products from three fabulous brands of sun-care. So if you’re in the market for a new sunscreen for your beach holiday or pool time this summer season, be sure to check these out. VICHY IDEAL-SOLEIL Body Spray SPF 50 Vichy make great skin care! They are one of my all time fave sun protection brands (even though they do a whole skincare range too – their sun-care is always tops in my book). For 2015, they’ve re-branded the Capital Soleil range, which is now called Vichy Ideal Soleil Bronze and I got to sample the Ideal Soleil SPF 50 Body Spray (R295 for 200ml). It contains highly effective UVA and UVB as well as Long-Wave UVA filters that protect your skin while keeping it beautiful! With a combination of Tyrosine and Caffeine, these two active ingredients act as pro-pigmenting agents in two different ways. Tyrosine boosts the production of melanin so you tan beautifully, while caffeine inhibits phosphodiesterase, which stops melanogenesis from occurring properly. Also, with the SPF body…

The Summer Body Rockers

The Summer Body Rockers

Ok ladies, it’s time to start thinking about those summer bodies! No more hiding behind oversized sweaters and leggings, it’s time to show some skin! Scary thought, I know! That’s why today, I’ve rounded up a few Summer Body Rockers that will help you get your body ready for the season of sun, fun, sand and sea… Show your skin some love… with L’Occitane’s brand new, blissfully beautiful Almond Youthful Body Velvet Balm (R710 for 200ml) and Almond Youthful Body Velvet Serum (R660 for 100ml). If you’re looking to indulge, forget chocolate and bubbly and trade them in for this healthy skin ritual. It smells, looks and most importantly, feels heavenly! Formulated with a regenerating complex of almond native cells, The Velvet Serum contains Vitamin C to help even out the skin and reveal its youthfulness, while the Velvet Balm provides and immediate sensation of comfort. Both leave your skin feeling like a million bucks, and it’s a huge bonus that this collection helps to target the five signs of skin aging, which include; dryness, skin slackening, lack of tonicity, fine lines and skin irregularities. Did you know that thanks to its deep roots and leaves (from which very little moisture evaporates), the almond tree is highly resistant to drought? L’Occitane’s…
