    The Ordinary caffeine solution 5% + EGCG – Does it help with dark undereye circles?

    Over these past months I noticed my undereye circles have gotten worse so I decided that I needed to use a product that might help with it. I purchased the ordinary caffeine solution a while back and haven’t used it religiously until now.  It’s been a month that I have used this product twice a day without fail and decided that I can finally formulate my opinion. I seemed skeptical to try this product for over a month because in the past eye products haven’t really worked for my undereye circles. I think no product will truly help with that but it’s worth a try.  This product contains EGCG and…

    Lockdown heatless styling-L’OrealStudio Line Invisi’hold 24h Natural Clear Gel Extra Strength

    I have been so lazy to do my hair that honestly now days that I just leave it to air dry. However, I do want to look neat and tidy so I just put  some gel and style it to the way I want. Also, I hardly tested this product so it gave it me a chance to review this product. This product claims to hold hair for up to 24 hours in your desired style without stickiness, stiffness or flaking. I feel to a certain extent that this claim is true. Yes this product can hold up to 24 hours but it flakes alot. I guess because because I…

    Makeup products that I have been enjoying

    I started playing around with makeup again and I’m glad that I actually did. I got a chance to see what I like and what I need to throw away. Also, I discovered that I had a lot of expired makeup that I even forgot about. Anyways for this review I decided to select two products that I would usually grab onto when I leave the house and thought a lip product is a must and I also needed a product to create dimension to my face which a bronzer is perfect for. The Wet n Wild MegaLast Catsuit High-Shine Lipstick  is such an amazing product to have. It is…

    Pixi retinol toner – Not actually worth the buy.

    I have written a review about the product before but my thoughts on this has changed. Initially I had loved using this product but with continued use my skin didn’t quite react well. This product claims:It has time-release Retinol which is supposed to reduce fine lines and  smooth complexion. It also contains peptides to firm the skin and boost collagen production. It has jasmine flower which heals and balances. When I first started using this product my skin reacted well with it. I definitely felt my skin smoother and a slight glow to my complexion. This product can be used day and night but I only used this at night…

    Sorbet long wear nail polishes-worth the buy?

    Sorbet has been a well established brand in South Africa and I’m quite shocked that I have only tried their nail products. I think the main reason that I was attracted to Sorbet’s nail polishes was because of their wide range of colors. They had the pastel and neutral colors that I’m always so attracted to. Apart from that, I’m always on the hunt for long lasting nail polishes. My take on the product : Firstly it has a square tip brush that takes some time to get used when compared to the usual oval shaped brushes that comes with nail polishes. The nail polish applies seamlessly onto the nails…
