    Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Cream Review

    Ever since Durban has been experiencing cold weathers I have been opting for more moisturizing products. I usually buy all my body products from the drugstore. They are affordable and definitely get the job done. I purchased the Nivea Cocoa Butter body cream a while back and forgot to use it. I sometimes go through a phase where I purchase products and forget to use them. Since my skin felt like it was lacking moisture I went through my cardboard for something to use and spotted this.The body cream is a dermatologically approved formula that is meant to intensively moisturize and nourish dry skin for forty eight hours. 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…

    I never ever considered myself a skincare junkie but as of recently I can positively say I am. I started my journey of a proper skincare routine two years ago.

Their products do not contain animal ingredients which also include honey, beeswax, milk, eggs and so on. Another reason for purchasing their products was because of their staff. They are so well informed upon selling me their product, they told…
