AROMASOAPZ [ORGANIC BODY SCRUB AND GLYCERIN SOAP] REVIEW.

img_what_are_the_benefits_of_using_glycerin_soap_1821_300_150

A couple of days ago I met a lady named Patricia. Patricia is a beautician by profession and has decided to start her own beauty company named AromaSoapz. She makes products such as glycerin soaps, body scrubs, perfumes, massage oils  and etc.

All her products are organic meaning that they are natural and are very beneficial for all types of skin. She makes them from natural oils, herbs and smells and makes sure that all her products have different purposes that they work towards. What I love about what she is doing is the fact that she makes all these products from the beginning, from scratch and works them up to what we buy. Patricia gave me two of her products to try , a rosemary glycerine soap and a body scrub which I will review today.

Firstly let’s just say her products smell heavenly!! Especially her soaps. They’ve got distinctive smells that just keep you wanting more. They make sure that you always smell fresh!!


When Patricia said that I didn’t even need a week to try her products because they work from the word go, I thought she was just trying to sell a product but I kid you not from the first day that I tried her body scrub and glycerin soap  I could already see a difference. From using her bodyscrub my skin has been feeling very soft and moisturized and secondly i could feel the cleanliness and how exfoliated my skin was. My skin does also look much healthier!!

Bodyscrubs are meant to remove dead skin cells, open up sweat pores, help remove cellulite and improves circulation because of the granules the bodyscrubs contain.

I normally have weird reactions when using different soaps on my face but when I used her Aroma glycerin soap I noticed that my skin felt fresh and like a baby’s bum. My skin didn’t feel dry at all and I found that after using the body scrub my skin moisturized much better- Instead of bouncing off my skin it stayed on for the full day making sure my skin stayed smooth and moisturized.

If i could rate AromaSoapz I would rate them a 10/10 simply because the products

  • Are organic
  • Smell great!
  • Are beneficial for almost all types of skin
  • Sell at reasonable prices

Patricia told me that her organic products could also heal acne and aczema and many other skin problems and I thought that was so beneficial because so many of us go through problematic skin throughout our lives and the fact that her products that are actually cheap(start from R40) could heal those things is amazing. And not only do they heal you physically but psychologically too! Just like how we know different herbs heal different things they do that psychologically too.

She also has a huge range of products. Literally she can make anything there is with some herbs and oils.

If you would like to try AromaSoapz please do contact Patricia and place an order! If this post is what is making you want to buy her products then let her know that I sent you!! It would truly mean a lot if you guys showed her support on her new business.

COLLABMAS DAY 11: CHRISTMAS WISHLIST PART 2.

Hey guys what is up?! Welcome to collabmas day 11!! We are so close, like can you feel the Christmas spirit? So last time I did a Christmas wishlist with Tea Lily but it was kind of a more fashionable Christmas wishlist. Today’s collaboration is with Fearlessnosi and together we are doing another wishlist but a more variable one with everything in it.Please do go and check out Fearlessnosi she’ll also have her wishlist up.

1. Speaker.

Music is one of the things that keep me going at all times whether I’m sad or happy. I have been wishing for a speaker for a long time now and never been able to get it. I would like one that is actually portable but with a good quality so that I can take it everywhere that I go. However I should warn you, I love hearing the beat of a song so I might just blow the roof off.
2. Customized phone case.

I’ve been loving these customized cases for a while now. I just love how you can incorporate your style and inspiration into your case, something that you see everyday and that you use everyday.
3. A makeup brush set.

includespostage-com_

I am only starting off with makeup so I don’t really know much than what I have picked up from Youtube. So at the moment I don’t own any makeup brushes so I don’t mind getting any makeup brushes but I’d really love to get the whole shabang with all the different brushes.

4. Camera.

tvc-50020image20hr202-500x500

I am into making videos and taking pictures so I’dd love to get an actual camera to do those things. I recently started uploading on my YouTube channel and honestly it would be much better if i had a camera to actually take the videos with and be on A level with all the other youtubers. I recently just found out about the telefunken digital video camera tvc 240 which has 24 MP and I think is a pretty good camera to start ff with plus its only R1599 which I think is reasonable for a good quality camera.
5. LA girl setting spray.

img_2508

At the moment I own the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and if you know it then you know that it’s got such a matte finish. Okay so i’m not a fan of that. Actually I’d much rather prefer if I had a dewy fresh kind of face. So the main reason I’ve got this makeup setting spray on my wishlist  is because I’m hoping to get a fresh face rather than a dry one (matte).
6. LA Girl concealer.

I’ve also added this product to the list because I’ve heard so many good reviews about it and I’d actually love to try it. I’ve Also heard that it is actually one of the of the best concealers even though it is drugstore and sold at cheap price. So that would be amazing if I actually got one to try. I don’t think I need to conceal anything but I’d still love to have one.
7. Bronzer/ highlighter that goes with my skin tone.

img_8436
Okay so I’ve always had problems with bronzers/highlighters. In my opinion it is really much harder to to get the right shade if you’re very dark so I’ve been really weary about it. However I’d still love one because I love the way these girls are glowing.

Bath Gift Set

Okay so since I was young I’ve always loved the bath gift sets that they always had at Dischem and still today no one has felt the need to gift me one so it is still something I wish to get. I just love the way they are setted out and the scents, guys I literally die!  So I’d definitely love to get one of these.

Yuup guys so that is my wishlist part 2. Make sure to go and read the first one because I still love the things listed there. Also do go and check out Fearlessnosi’ wishlist I’ve got a feeling that its going to be bomb and add her on instagram here.

If you’re interested in collaborating on any type of post please add me on any social media or email me and we can definitely talk about what to collaborate on. Honestly collaboratinmg is so much fun, so if you’re interested hala at me. I promise you I’m agreeing to everyone.

On my mood board I’ve got a variety of things that keep me going and that I feel with them, they just take an outfit to a whole new level. I feel like you could go from a 0 to a hundred with some of these pieces.

COLLABMAS DAY 6: CHRISTMAS WISHLIST.

 

Hey guys what is up?!  Who’s excited for Christmas because I am on that A grade??! Todays collaboration is with Lily who owns the blog Tea Lily and we have decided to do a Christmas wishlist. I mean what’s the best way to tell people what to get you for Christmas than a wishlist.


"Wish list 1" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring Casadei and Aquazzura

Boots.

So the first thing that I thought about when I started writing this post was boots. I am such a boot girl that no other shoe stands a chance. I will not even look at it if I have boots in front of me.So there’s 3 types of boots that I have longed for for so long, Thigh high boots, See through boots( I don’t really mind the length” and really high platform boots. Thing is I actually had the platform boots but for some reason my mom thought they were very high.

Jackets.

"WISHLIST 4" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring LE3NO:

If you ask anyone who really knows me they will tell you I suck at jackets. I could have a whole outfit set up that looks bomb but I wouldn’t have a jacket. I don’t even know when last I bought a jacket. So getting any form of jackets would actually help me so much, from any type of sickness and being on worst dressed. I have been loving oversized denim bomber jackets and any long over sized jackets so that would really be nice to add to my closet.

Glasses

Guys I die for glasses, each time I get into a shop I always have to try on their glasses because I think its an addiction. I’ve been loving over sized glasses because I generally have a small face and I just love the way they look on me. So I’d definitely love to add a few more pairs to my non existent collection.

Shirt dresses.

"WISHLIST 3" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring WithChic and T By Alexander Wang:

This is actually sad for me. I can not tell you how many times I have tried on shirt dresses and they did not suit me. I’m still looking for one that will suit me but at this point it doesn’t look like I am ever going to find one. I think it is maybe my figure but honestly I have no idea.

Bodysuits.

I’m addicted to bodysuits because I love sexy looks and how they all look with anything tight. I feel like they just give you a more stylish look and that’s normally what I look for. I have 2 body suits at the moment but I would love to have 10 so that’s why i’m putting it on my wishlist.

Jeans.

I’m simply adding jeans to this list only because I wear jeans a lot and I feel like having a vast range of them would actually do me well. I don’t have boyfriend jeans because of my non existent waist but I actually would love a pair. I also would love to get lots of jeans in other colours just so that I can switch things up a little.

Yuup guys so that is my Christmas wishlist (did anyone notice how this all became a fashion wishlist, I swear I didn’t even notice)and I hope you guys enjoyed reading it. Please go and check out Lily’s wishlist she’s got some really good things there. Also add her on Instagram, she’s got such a tumblr feed.

COLLABMAS DAY 5: 5 HAIRSTYLES FOR SHORT RELAXED HAIR.

Hey guys what is up? So today i’m collaborating with Adropofserendipity and we are doing something I’ve never actually done on my blog – Hairstyles! We’ve decided too both do different types of hairstyles for our kind of hair. We both do have different types of hairs so this will be really fun and interesting. We both have the same posts so do go check her out after reading this!

So for the first hairstyle I wanted to do something easy and that anyone can do. Instead of only just doing a  bun I wanted to add a little more funk to it so I did tease my hair at the ends and trust me the hairstyle went from a 0 to a 100.

The second hairstyle is something that is very easy to do that still looks stylish. So this is for when you don’t wanna be all too extra but  you still want to look like you’ve tried. All I did for this hairstyle is sweep all my hair to one side and then braid it down so that your hair is secure and then for more juice I did leave out some of my hair on one side.


The third hairstyle is actually something that I came up with as of right now. My initial take was to have a leave out on the side that was singly braided but as I was doing it, I saw more potential into the hairstyle. So what I did was part a square in the middle of my head then with the hair in the square I twist braided it all singly. Then to get the shape I twisted all the  twist braids into one braid until it was one huge braid then I just stuck it to back of my head with a clip, making sure to keep it in a circular kind of shape.

whats nice about this hairstyle is that you can have your hair both down or in a bun and it would still look good.

 

 

The next hairstyle I did was this princessy kind of hairstyle. I actually tried this hairstyle out yesterday first and I actually liked how it looked/

The next hairstyle I have is of a bun. This is an easy low bun hairstyle with some juice. All I did was part some hair out on the side and then tie everything up so that it looked like a normal side out bun but then instead of just leaving the hair out I braided it all and then clipped it at the back of my head.

The last hairstyle I did was very easy. In fact I normally do this hairstyle when I’m just chilling at home or even when going out. So for this hairstyle all you have to do is part out a square in the middle of your head to the size of your liking  and then just tie that up into a bun then you can either leave your hair down with it or tied up depending on what you prefer.

TIP : To make these hairstyles a little more saucy you can actually add some gel to your edges so that everything looks put together.

Yuup guys so those are the Hairstyles I managed to come up with. Tell me what your favorite hairstyle is and what is your go to hairstyle. Anyway thank you guys for reading and do please go and check out Adropofserendipity on her blog and her Instagram, honestly I love reading her captions and she’s such a sweet girl. Also wanna say thank you to her for agreeing to this collab!

pieces: pants, sneakers and a black top paired with a trendy

item, you’ll never look out of style!

Selena Gomez rocks this simple androgynous outfit! Create a

minimalist base with a white tee, black leggings and sneakers.

Accessorize with a cosy beanie and retro inspired glasses.

Finally, top it off with an elegant navy coat to create that

tailored put together stream lined look, and you’re complete!

 
 What I made?
Zendaya
 zenyzen-zen
Here Zendaya is wearing a knitted dress that I love so much. This look is something that anyone could completely rock! It is absolutely comfortable and i love that this look could easily go from casual to something formal.The way that Zendaya put the little pump heels in to the outfit just makes it look like she actually tried with the outfit when she could have just picked whatever out. I also love the hair as it makes the outfit a bit more elegant.

Bella Thorne

belly.jpg

Here Bella is wearing something that almost all of us have and I like that it is completely casual.You can go anywhere with it and still look stylish.I also like the fact that she put a body suit with the outfit because it makes the outfit a little tad more stylish and sexier. The boots also add a little more sauce to the outfit just so that you don’t see it as just an outfit but something a bit more.

Yuup guys so that it our  looks. Leave a comment telling me which was your favorite look above. Also don’t forget to add Helen on Instagram and read up on her blog. She is such an amazing person. Also wanna say thank you to her to agreeing to do this post.
