Skin Creamery Everyday Cream
When my glass container of face cream ran out, I got a new bottle from The Beautiful Store. The Skin Creamery everyday cream is so amazing for my skin. I use it day and night. Because it’s actually an all-over cream, I also rub it into my hands when I go to bed.
And while we’re on the subject of Skin Creamery, you really need to try the oil milk cleanser! It’s truely amazing! You rub it onto dry skin, and then add a bit of water to emulsify it and then massage it in. It’s fantastic for removing make-up, even waterproof mascara.
The combination of the cleanser, the facial oil (which I use at night and deserves it’s own blog post) and the face cream has cleared up my skin completely.
Of course I had to browse around while I was online, and eventually got a few more things to add to my basket.
The Beautiful Store Care and Repair Cream
I’ve been struggling with eczema around my nose for a few months. Although the Skin Creamery products are helping, the problem hasn’t been going away. After chatting to Rachelle (she runs The Beautiful Store) on Twitter, I decided to try the Care and Repair cream. She advised me to get the tub of cream, rather than the lotion because it’s thicker.
When I showed a colleague of mine the jar, she was amazed at the ingredients. I’m not a big homeopathic person but apparently one of the ingredients is a well known homeopathic remedy. She said that she hasn’t seen it used in skincare before. I found that pretty interesting!
Well, I’ve been using it for almost 3 weeks now and my skin is finally clearing up. It’s a slow process, but this is really making a difference.
I’m also using it to try and reduce the pigmentation on my cheeks.
Tara & Jack masks
Lastly, I’ve also tried out the Tara & Jack masks. Rachelle has blogged about the range of masks so I’m not going to repeat what she said… you’re welcome to read it.
I’ve used one of the masks that I got from The Beautiful Store. Rachelle recommended the Shaker mask with Apple Stem Cells. Now, I’m pretty bad with masks normally but willing to give them a try. I’d rather just go for a facial, but I actually haven’t got the time and as a result haven’t been in ages!
You mix the powder with water in a shaker tub. The mixture gets thicker as you shake it. It’s like a very cool gel that you lather onto your skin. The mixture lasted for 2 applications. I couldn’t get it to peel off like the instructions say, but it was easy to get off with warm water.
I LOVED the feel of my skin after using the mask! I’m definitely going to be buying more.
About the shopping
Buying items from this online store is such a pleasure. You don’t pay for delivery and you get notified every step of the way. The store is based in Cape Town, and it only takes 1-2 days to get to Joburg. I’ve ordered from them twice now, and it’s a great experience.
