As the frosty weather arrives, our beauty editor rounds up the winter beauty products on her lust list!
Is there anything better than lighting your favourite candle, pouring a glass of red and curling up next to the fire on a chilly winter’s night? Make Cape Islands African Storm Candle (R549 at Yuppiechef) your candle companion. With warming sandalwood and comforting Jasmine – it’s the perfect recipe for relaxation. And relaxing is the number one must-have winter beauty ‘product’!
Protect & repair
An often overlooked area – and one of the first areas to begin to show signs of ageing – is the décolleté. Combat this by always applying sunscreen to all areas exposed on your chest. At night apply something like Gatineau Defi Lift 3D Firming Neck & Décolleté Gel (R1 165 at absoluteskin.co.za) which is formulated to help tighten skin and visibly firm the delicate neck and décolleté area. This is thanks to powerful plant proteins, encapsulated hyaluronic acid as well as Fixlift technology.
TIP! Use gentle, upward strokes all the way up to the jawline using your hands or your favourite stone roller, and feel the tension dissipate.
As someone who has always suffered from PMS, when KIKO Vitals Hormone Balance (R490 for 60 tablets at kikovitals.com) landed on my desk I thought well, what have I got to lose! With rave reviews from customers experiencing less period pains, to more stable moods, these must-have winter beauty products are formulated using bio-actives by naturopaths and scientists, combining the best of both worlds.
So far so good! I’ve noticed better sleep (bye dark under-eyes!), less brain fog and a calmer mood as I moved through my cycle. I think if I ever run out, my husband might be the first to order me another bottle!
We all love a good deal, right? The original Guess Bella Vita is currently on sale at Edgars online at R749,25 for 50ml! Ensconce yourself in a fruity floral orient with notes of black cherry, tuberose and tonka bean. A sensual scent that is long lasting and a real bang for your buck right now!
