Beauty Gems of the Week

Bight complexion, Kissable lips and to-die -for skin  make up this weeks’ beauty must have’s.

Gosh BB cream


With Summer finally in sight, this is one beauty essential needed for your beauty bag. Gosh’s bb cream is perfect for a hot humid day – lightweight with a seamless appearance, it is water resistant and also contains SPF15. Choose from five skin adapting shades 01 sand, 02 Beige, 03 Warm Beige, 04 Chestnut and 05 Expresso for a summer bright complexion.

Dr. Bragi marine enzyme intensive treatment mask


Perk up your complexion this Spring / Summer with this single-use cloth mask from the Dr. Bragi range. The cloth mask contains marine enzymes found in the depths of the Icelandic ocean, where temperatures remain extremely low, so it becomes super-active when warmed by body heat.

The cloth has several benefits including moisturising the skin. The glycerol and sorbitol in it lock water molecules into the skin for continuous hydration, while the marine enzymes improve cell function, leaving skin plumped and supple.

The mask also increases vital circulation to connective tissue, prevents the breakdown of collagen, diminishing fine lines and improves elasticity and finally, it has anti-inflammatory qualities; it reduces irritation, itchiness and redness whilst soothing areas prone to sensitivity.

Weekly use for just 15 minutes will dramatically transform dehydrated, weather-worn skin resulting in a brighter, plumper more youthful appearance. The Dr. Bragi range contains no artificial preservatives, parabens, perfumes, silicon, glycols, dyes, lipids or lanolin.

Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask

Pom Exfoliating Mask-HR

Here’s another great product designed to provide instantly smoother, brighter and more hydrated skin. This high-performance exfoliating mask addresses combination skin concerns, including oily and dry problem areas, to maximise youthful radiance.

Main ingredients include Pomegranate and Ginkgo Biloba Extracts to fight inflammation and free radicals from smoke, pollution and sun exposure. It also contains natural fruit enzymes and AHAs to help dissolve tired cells while freeing the skin’s surface of trapped impurities so cells can function at their highest level; and Sodium PCA softens and conditions leaving skin moisturised and refreshed.

Murad’s Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask comes in a convenient single-use packet and is sold sold in sets of six. For a summer bright complexion, apply contents of one packet to face and neck after cleansing. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, use 1 to 2 times weekly and follow with recommended Murad moisturiser and sun block.

Fake Bake Babe Tools LipGloss 


I’ve been using this lipgloss range for a little over a month and I’m in love! Launched specifically for Spring / Summer, they come in hues designed to complement summer skin tones. They perfectly accentuate your tan or natural colour for daytime to evening wear. #Apply to clean, dry lips for long-lasting colour while benefiting from added moisture for luscious, kissable lips.
