Whether you’re struggling with the odd blemish or advising a teen with problem skin, the Pond’s Pimple Clear range is well worth a try. Apply the Face Wash (R34,99 for 43ml) to damp skin, lather, massage and rinse; it removes dirt and other impurities without leaving your skin feeling tight. After cleansing, smooth some Leave-on Expert Cleansing Gel (R44,99 for 18ml) onto the areas most prone to breakouts.
HAPPY 30TH, BIO-OIL! The new Dior collection is all about molten metallics (read lush textures and shades): Screaming Metal Metalizer Eyes & Lips in 898 Plum Reflexion (R390) lasts ages and is creamy and buildable. Paradoxical Light 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 677 Hypnotize (R970) is a rich blend of coppery browns. Signature Smile Rouge Dior Lipstick in 999 Metallic (R595) is a bold red with an orange tinge. And Vernis Magnetic Lacquer in 612 Metallics (R425) is a deep grey with a hint of purple.
GABRIELLE CHANEL EDP R2465 FOR 100ML EDP DIOR’S LATEST RANGE Local favourite Bio-Oil (R99,99 for 60ml) is a go-to for healing scars and lightening stretch marks, and soothing burns and insect bites. Even the Kardashians are fans – Khloé applies it to her face before bed, and Kim slathers it all over her body to keep her skin hydrated. It’s brilliant: I had a melanoma cut out of my arm six years ago and the scar was so deep I thought it would never heal. You can’t even see it now. The brand is turning 30 this year, and has revamped its label to mark the occasion.
Named after the icon herself (though we all know her as Coco), Gabrielle Chanel EDP (R2465 for 100ml EDP) is rebellious, passionate and free – as you’ve probably gathered from the ads, where Kristen Stewart sprints to the strains of Beyoncé’s ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All)’. The bottle is classic Chanel, and the fragrance is a white floral scent with notes of jasmine, orange blossom, ylang-ylang, tuberose and milky sandalwood. Très, très Chanel.
