5 favourites in colour

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last Five Favourites post! It just goes to show how fast time is going by without me even realizing it… It’s supposed to be spring soon, here in Cape Town; the season where flowers start to bloom and leaves seem to have that extra lush, green look that brightens our city once again. So in the name of spring, this is my 5 Favourites in green.

#3 – GREEN

Pistachio Macarons

I lurrrrrv macarons – someone put this on a shirt already!!! Give me any flavour, any time and there won’t be a crumb left after I’m finished! Also, I love pistachios… So no surprise, that my all time favourite macaron is the pistachio flavoured one because it is simply divine! I also adore the colour of them because you don’t find a lot of cakes in this pop of bright green.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I always have tea tree oil in my beauty stash. It helps with inflammation, blemishes, redness, insect bites or burns, the list goes on and on. The Tea Tree Oil range of products from The Body Shop is brilliant! It is all natural and it gives you that tingly feeling when you use it, as if you can feel it working its magic.

Johnson’s Face Care Oil Control Face Cream

A few weeks ago I was looking for an oil controlling face cream because my skin gets really oily halfway through the day. I came across this new line from Johnson & Johnson and bought it because it was really affordable. I’ve never used facial products from Johnson’s before so I was pleasantly surprised by this. It moisturizes the face but keeps oil at bay. Also, it smells so fresh and clean.

Bioderma Sebium Micellar Solution

Garnier recently launched their micellar solutions in South Africa and I immediately went out to grab a bottle because I’ve heard amazing things about it. I took the bottle for sensitive skin because the one for combination skin contains alcohol, and my skin reacts badly to any products that contain alcohol. After about two weeks of using it, I came to realize that it is just a makeup remover. It does nothing else to help my skin. So I got a bottle of the Bioderma Sebium H2O Solution. I used this a few years ago and completely loved it! It removes all traces of makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. I would recommend this to anyone with combination skin – it is a miracle in a 250ml bottle!

Labello Pure & Natural Mint and Minerals

This is my most used Labello. It is super moisturizing and leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth long after the lip balm has been removed. It also has a lovely, fresh minty scent that is always a plus!
