I go to Dischem every 2/3 months to stock up on a whole lotta different toiletries for myself, C and the kids but the last time I went, things got a little out of hand. I decided to spend a little more time than usual (which is already pretty long) browsing the aisles and well, let’s just say I went a little over board. But all for research, I said to myself. I fell for it pretty easily but C was a little harder to convince. Anyhoo, this is what I got. I also got the new Nivea Cocoa Creme shower cream which I am completely obsessed with but forgot to include in the photo. Whoops! (This was a big one so please forgive the very lengthy post.)

Wella Proseries Strong hold hair spray – I needed new hair spray and have been using a similar Tresemme one and thought I’d try this one instead. Hairspray is really not something I spend too much money on as I don’t use it often enough and when I do, I really just want it to set my style without leaving it crunchy, sticky or dull-looking. So far I’m pretty chuffed with this one and it’s cheap as chips so right up my alley.

Eucerin Dermatoclean cleansers

Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel & Mild Cleansing Milk – I am a really big fan of this brand and decided to get both these cleansers because in the morning I want my face to be properly cleansed and prepared for a full day of make-up, so I liked the sound of the cleansing gel and at night I want my skin to be nourished and properly hydrated, so the cleansing milk seemed applicable for that. I’ve also been experiencing a lot of dryness and random sensitive patches and wanted products that wouldn’t irritate my skin. Both these have been tested on sensitive skin and having used it now for around two weeks, I am properly chuffed. I’ll continue using it and if I still love it in a few weeks, you’ll hear more about it.

Trevor Sorbie Serum

Trevor Sorbie Smoothing Serum – I’ve been looking for a new finishing product for my hair but I am incredibly difficult when it comes to serums, etc. for hair because I generally hate their texture and how they feel on my hair. They are either too heavy and greasy or they feel sticky. I made myself a little sample with this in the store (naughty!) but I just had to test it before buying it and I’m happy to say that I fell in love with it instantly (and bought my “sample”). This is more oil than the serums I am used to which makes it feel really light while still doing the job. It smooths the cuticles of my hair sufficiently while leaving it feeling silky and soft. The scent is lovely too, without being intrusive.

L'oreal Lumi Magique

L’oreal Lumi Magique Primer – I have heard Fleur (from Fleur de Force) talking about this and was delighted to find it here. I might be completely out of the loop but I hadn’t seen it before so I quickly snatched one up (it helped that it had pretty rose gold trim on the packaging). I didn’t really expect too much of this, to be honest but I’ve become a little infatuated with it. I don’t use it all over my face but instead just buff it into areas I want highlighted and it leaves my skin looking glowy and beautiful. Just lovely!

Barbara Hoffman brushes

Barbara Hoffman brushes – “Who?” I hear you ask, ja, don’t worry I didn’t know either but they had these brushes as part of a really pretty display and so I played around with a few of them and I’ve been very impressed. They are relatively cheap (The eye shadow brush was R85 and the foundation brush around the R170 mark, if I remember correctly) and they are very effective. I think these brushes are great brushes for anyone who is starting their brush collection and don’t want to spend too much money. I was especially impressed with the flat-topped foundation brush as it really buffs foundation into my skin beautifully leaving my skin looking flawless. However, I hate the handle. Chrome + acrylic = cheap-looking 80’s crap. But the brush is good so I deal with it.

L'oreal Revita lift serum

L’oreal Revitalift Laser Renew – I was looking for a new serum (which doesn’t cost an arm and a leg) and asked the sales lady which she would recommend. She told me that L’oreal had recently launched the Revitalift serum and that she has had a few ladies buy it instead of their Estee Lauder Idealist, which to be quite honest I didn’t believe at all. Still, I thought I’d give it a try and I have to say, it’s pretty good. The serum has a gold-toned sheen to it so it leaves your skin looking really glowy and it absorbs really quickly. I also find it quite nourishing while not feeling heavy or greasy and at around the R200 mark, this is definitely one to look out for.

Essence & Charlie Nail products

Essence Colour & Go nail polish and Express dry drops AND Charlie Long lasting nail colour – When my best friend told me she loved Essence nail polish while we were shopping a while ago, I nodded and smiled but knew it wouldn’t be something I ever tried. I’m not exactly a beauty product snob but geez, R22 for nail polish? There’s a reason it’s that cheap, surely? Well, I’m eating humble pie because I bought the Colour & Go in and I LOVE IT. The colour is intense and opaque from the first coat, long lasting and dries really quickly. I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the last two weeks and can safely say I will continue doing so throughout winter. I also bought their Express dry drops which were around R35 and have been equally impressed. It does what it says it does and in my opinion, this is something everyone should have as part of their nail product collection. Finally, I bought a Charlie nail varnish which is something I haven’t done since I was a teenager. I saw this pretty pale pink (Naturally nude) and decided to give it a go. The polish is quite sheer and not overly pigmented but I’m not too bothered as it leaves your nails looking natural but ‘done’ and I think a polish like this belongs in every girl’s collection.

And that’s it. As you can see, I wasn’t exaggerating when I said I went a little overboard but I’ve been very happy with my purchases. Have you tried any of these products? And if so, what did you think?
