body shop charcoal mask

Hiiiii So a while ago I got to spend some delightful time in the UK catching up with friends and exploring. I spent a good few days chilling with my bestie Stamatia in St Albans. The one day it absolutely poured with rain, for the first few hours we weren’t going to let the bad […]

Hiiii So a little while ago I got into work to find a bunch of these babies from Dove, they’ve got a whole new formula (but with the same classic Dove scent) so I thought I’d give them a try. I’m going to be honest, I’m a sucker for the Dove Original one, it has that […]

Hiiii Is it just me or did Cape Town suddenly get absolutely freezing? It’s like I’ve completely forgotten how to dress for winter and I am struggling to keep myself warm. Brrrrr. I’ve been scouring Pinterest for some winter inspiration (because apparently it’s not appropriate to walk around with a hot water bottle constantly) so […]

Hiiiiii Recently I got my hands on the Avene Hydrance Optimal tinted moisturiser (which I didn’t even know existed) to try out. I’ll be honest, normally a tinted moisturiser doesn’t work for me. I’ve always found in the past that either the shade isn’t right, or it just feels funny on my skin or it […]

eucerin

Hello you. HAPPY FRIDAY. I thought I’d take some time today to talk about one of my favourite skin care brands and how I’ve managed to look after my financials while enjoying that brand. If you follow Smudged on Instagram, you will have seen some of Eucerin’s products. (And if you don’t follow us on […]

John Frieda sheer blonde shampoo conditioner

Yo blondies. I’ve written quite a few posts about caring for your blonde hair, especially if it’s fake*. *I mean you’re not a natural blonde, you’ve had some highlights/peroxide/blonding products in your life. I have been a fake blonde for about four years now, and it’s definitely been a journey for me. I’ve learnt what my hair […]

Vaseline Spray Moisturiser

Listen, let’s just cut to the chase here. I’m pretty lazy when it comes to moisturising, I will do ANYTHING rather than moisturising. It just seems like such a mission, and I have to keep on doing it every day? MISSION. And it just takes such a long time and I always feel like I’ve lost […]

Garnier oil infused micellar water

Hey everyone. Long time, no speak. I could give you a whole long story about my life and what I’ve been up to that has distracted me from writing here, ooooor I could just not do that and not bore you with unimportant information and just get straight into my thoughts about the new(ish) oil […]

john frieda frizz ease

  Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you’re ready to relax and regroup on the public holiday tomorrow. I’ve recently been trying out a good few shampoos and conditioners, my shower is looking like a shelf in a hair salon at the moment. Buuut, the benefit of trying out all of these things is that I get […]

Vaseline Firming Body Lotion

Hiiiii *waves* Hope you’re all having a great Tuesday! I’ve decided that I’m starting my New Year’s resolutions in December so that by the time January comes along, I’ve already formed the habits. Smart hey? One of my key resolutions is to start taking better care of my skin, that means moisturising, sun cream and […]
