A small step back to South Africa and a giant leap of excitement for beauty freaks…
When you love beauty as much as I do, there’s nothing better then discovering a fab new product… and another level of happiness when a product or brand you adore is finally available in the country you reside *happy dance
Yes ladies Benefit is back!
You see, one of the biggest irks of being a beauty blogger in South Africa is there are so many wonderful goodies spoken about and shared by beauty veterans around the world but *sigh are unavailable here. A number of places do ship here but it can be costly. Some sites deliver to SA but don’t ship certain products *sigh. Here are some exciting discoveries of some goodies that we can get in South Africa for all you lovelies…
Benefit was available here then it left but has come back to us. Not only does all their packaging make me swoon but the products are really good and last ages. Currently only available in Edgars or Red Square in Jozi and Cape Town but you can order online from Red Square.
First buy – Foundation Stick in Paper Doll
First love – Dandelion
Ever heard of Mario Badescu? Brilliant skincare in super simple packaging which I have been wanting to try for ages… Apparently they have been available in South Africa for 5 years! Either way, if like me you had no idea, now you do! They have their very own celebrity ‘hall of fame’ chocca with all the celebs who love and use their product… “because they trust the products to help keep their skin clear and beautiful. They are not paid to use the products – they use the products by choice, and that says it all.” Well if it’s good enough for Jen, Gwynie and the gang, then it’s good enough for me.
If you read my post from my series on Brushes, you may remember me gushing over the Real Techniques make up brushes. If you missed it, take a look here. I love mine and don’t apply foundation without the ‘Buffing Brush’. It is brilliant and allows you to really buff in your foundation making it far more natural looking. You can now get them on this site Biovea and they are on sale – bonus! Trust me, foundation application will never be the same. You can also pick up some Burt’s Bee’s here if the mood takes you…
Happy Shopping Beauties!
Love Wrendley (the Enabler!)
