Beauty buys for August
Let’s face it. We spend a lot of hard earned cash on getting our highlights to look natural, or colour to be perfect. So we’re wanting hair products that protect. So when we’re told about superior colour protection with a luxurious oil experience, we say a resounding yes please.
Schwarzkopf Professional’s new BC Brazilnut Oil range includes a gentle shampoo, an intense nourishing pulp treatment, a rich multi-benefit leave-in and a refined oil booster with a high concentration of Brazinlnut Oil. It’s a great treat for those wanting only good hair days.
Prices from R247 to R377.
No beauty cupboard is complete without Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream. The legendary Original Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is a classic that moisturizes and protects. Use if for chapping, peeling, sunburn, windburn, scrapes, cracked lips … even to shape brows, sooth dry hands and smooth cuticles and nails. R285.
Fast catching up as a must have is the Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist, a refreshing facial mist that instantly awakens the skin, giving it a soothing touch of hydration in an ultra-fine spray. It’s a brilliant on-the-go travel essential. R350.
Clairins must-haves … well, all of the products, really. But this month’s buys are the Bright Plus Brightening Day Lotion, which hydrates and smooths, corrects dark spots and an uneven skin tone and shield your skin from ageing UV rays. R775. The Brightening Body Veil, the perfect body treatment for even, smooth and well hydrated skin. The perfect body treatment for radiant, even skin which also diminishes the appearance of dark spots. R460.
And for a little glamour … we’ll have the Ombre Iridescente eye shadow in silver pink … a cream-to-powder sparkling eye shadow that leaves a subtle, iridescent shimmer. R320.
