Brands I wish were in South Africa- Paul and Joe

Paul and Joe is a french brand that has always been attractive to me. Theres not much I can say about them except that any crazy cat lady would love them! Their packaging and actual product is beautiful.

Montagne Jeunesse T-Zone Peel Off Mask

I bought this mask from Clicks because it was on sale and because I like to try out different masks all the time. This mask has no color and it is a peel off mask so I thought it would be perfect for me.

When I applied the mask, my cheeks began to burn. I thought that might just be the tea tree in the mask so I left it. After a few seconds, the burning stopped. Once the mask had dried, I tried to peel it off. It hurt so much. I was literally in tears as I peeled the mask off. My cheeks were ridiculously red the rest of the day and my skin was very dry. I was too scared to try the moisturizer that came with the mask after my experience.

I don't like to post negative reviews but I do feel like I need to warn others about this. I will definitely not be repurchasing or recommending this mask.

Have you ever experienced something similar?

Kardashian Beauty is coming to SA!

If theres one thing you should know about me, it would be that I am slightly obsessed with the Kardashians. My everyday make up bag is from their Dash store in New York. I own all the seasons of their show. I love them.

When I heard they had launched a beauty line, I was so excited. I thought it would never come to South Africa. I read an article today on The Wall Street Journal that confirmed they would be launching in Stuttafords.

"Azulade Marketing projects that after the initial limited launch in STUTTAFORDS' 15 stores, Kardashian Beauty will expand its distribution throughout the country in 2014 to up to 700 additional retail venues with the future distribution it has underway."
You can read the rest of the article here. I made a little collage of the products that have caught my eye on their website. Let me know if anything has caught your eye!

Im back!

Its been quite a while since I have last written a blog post. Over the last 5 weeks I have been working on a really big assignment and hopefully, I now only have about 2 months left before I finish my degree! Its going to be a tough 2 months but it will not be as crazy as the last 5 weeks.

I could have easily blogged during my 5 weeks but I was so tired that I probably would have just written anything. I want my posts to actually be helpful. So from Monday onwards, I will begin posting reviews and my other usual ramblings. I would like to do consistent themes at least twice a week (like my "Brands I wish were in South Africa" Wednesday posts). I will be spending my weekend thinking about that!

Also I would like to thank everyone who has visited my blog over the last couple of weeks! My views have gone up tremendously and I reached 10 000 page views without even knowing it! Maybe by 15 000 or 20 000 views, I will host a giveaway! Depending on my student budget! :)
