A little surprise for sensitive eyes

Makeup remover review

Botáni Olive Soothing Cleanser & Eye Make-up Remover is the most gentle and effective eye makeup remover I have ever used. I have seriously sensitive eyes and most eye makeup removers make my eyeballs bleed (think bloodshot to horror movie proportions) and sting like mad. For years there have been tears in front of the mirror at night. Like magic, Botáni’s Olive Soothing Cleanser & Eye Make-up Remover takes away my eye shadow and mascara (non-waterproof) without incident. It’s truly a gift from the Makeup Removal Gods.

Botáni Olive Soothing Cleanser & Eye Make-up Remover is:

  • an efficient face and eye makeup remover;
  • especially formulated for sensitive, mature and dry skins;
  • hydrating and healing due to ingredients such as olive squalene, calendula and chamomile;
  • PH balanced and so gentle you can even use it to cleanse a baby’s skin!;
  • creamy-textured with a light lavender aroma;
  • packaged in a re-usable and recyclable pure glass bottle with a pump dispenser;
  • easy to use (simply massage it over the skin and rinse off with water). (more…)

Use Botáni Olivéne Balm to smooth and calm!

Botáni Olivéne Balm is:

  • ♦ a skin hydrator and healer;
  • ♦ 100% natural and organic; and
  • ♦ a true multi-tasker. There is no job too big or small for this little tub of terrificness. It can be used all over the body and even as a lip balm.

It’s a special treat for fingers and feet!

Since I’ve welcomed Botáni Olivéne Balm into my life, I no longer get dermatitis on my digits. To free your fingers from flare-ups, rub on a tiny bit of balm daily. Top tip! For best results remove your rings prior to application.

Botáni Olivéne Balm has transformed my feet from scratchy to sandal-worthy. Before bedtime, simply massage the balm into your heels and soles, and pull on a pair of socks. When you wake up in the morning, your feet will be so smooth you’ll swear they’re somebody else’s!

This one-stop pot is the perfect addition to your car or handbag − but keep it cool. At temperatures north of 30°C, it melts!

Buy Botáni Olivéne Balm online at, or visit your nearest Priceline or Terry White Chemists store.

Best facial oil

“You’re glowing.” “Your skin looks great.” Isn’t that what every girl wants to hear? Lately I have been inundated with these sorts of remarks. You want to know the best part? It is my real skin they’re talking about. No foundation, concealer or highlighter in sight. Just pure, unmasked skin. The ultimate in compliments, right?

The secret: Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil.

For the last two months, I have been using Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil in place of my regular moisturizer both morning and night, and the results have been spectacular. (more…)
