• Hi everyone!

    I hope everyone is having the best week, and that you feel on top of your game (and if you don’t, that’s also okay! Take it one day at a time.)

    I have been super excited to let you all know a bit more about a brand that I have recently collaborated with, and which I feel really passionate about. For us Capetonian girls, I feel like the water crisis hit us pretty hard with power showers (which meant minimal hair washing.) As much as we would love to always be el-naturel with our hair, sometimes a good wash is all you need to help you feel like you can take on your day.

    I really love this brand, as it is pretty centered around and was inspired by the water crisis in Cape Town (we are the global launch city actually), and its main purpose is to help eliminate awkward hair in between washes (trust me, this girl needs a backup plan.) This brand is called  WATERL<SS. A water savvy and cruelty-free, range of products that includes dry shampoo’s (invisible spray and foam), dry conditioner’s, as well as a mini range of hair refreshers!

    Regardless if you are looking to save water or just have refreshed hair, I also think this product suits the lifestyle that we Capetonains live. Sometimes the thought of getting up an hour earlier just to wash and dry my hair is worse than sitting in an hour (or TEN) of traffic. WATERL<SS definitely caters to the everyday girl (and every hair type), and I am so excited to give you a little more insight to this beautiful brand!

    So, here is the range of products!

    DRY SHAMPOO #1 

    INVISIBLY CLEAN SPRAY 

    This product is more for fine/thin-to-medium thickness hair (so this is the product I would personally use.) What I absolutely adore, is that this dry shampoo leaves no awkward white, powdery residue. It’s completely residue-free! Also, once you’ve sprayed the dry shampoo into your hair, you can reactivate the scent of the shampoo by running your fingers through your hair! So fresh hair all day long. 

    ~ a fun tip for those girls who need to save their hair from yet another wash after a workout ~

    Spray your dry shampoo onto your hair before you work out, so the product can do the work as the oil is released from your hair while you get that sweat sesh done.
    When you spray it after, the product has got to do twice as much work!

    STEP BY STEP RECAP / HOW TO USE IT?

    It’s as simple as shake, spray and wait for the product to activate (t-minus a few seconds).
    Start at the roots and work your way down to the middle of your hair length, leaving the ends to be attended to by the dry conditioner of choice. 

    DRY SHAMPOO #2 

    WHIPPED CLEAN FOAM 

    If you’re more into a mousse form of dry shampoo, this is the product for you! Once again, completely residue-free. It really leaves your roots looking refreshed and revitalized, not greasy in the slightest. And yes, it’s got the exact same scent reactivation qualities. Fresh hair, all day long.

    STEP BY STEP RECAP / HOW TO USE IT?

    It’s as simple as shake and squirt a walnut size ball of foam into the palm of your hand. Start at the roots and work your way down to the middle of your hair length, leaving the ends to be attended to by the dry conditioner of choice.

    DRY CONDITIONER #1 

    FORGET THE FIZZ

    This would be the perfect product for girls with curlier and drier hair types. This conditioner restores softness to your ends without a wash! It’s basically the same as using a normal hair conditioner in the shower, minus the water. What’s amazing is you can also put this on your roots if you’ve got thicker hair for refreshed and shiny hair, and it has the reactivating scent as well. (Plus, it also helps get rid of any fizzy bits you need to get under control.) Although I have quite straight hair, I also have some fizzy bits here and there. This is the perfect two in one – you can get that frizz under control, as well as have soft ends. I love this one!

    STEP BY STEP RECAP / HOW TO USE IT?

    Shake, spray by holding the can 20-30cms away from your hair applying it mid-length to the ends

    DRY CONDITIONER #2

    WEIGHTLESS

    Suitable for all hair types. This conditioner instantly softens your hair and leaves it hydrated AF. WATERL<SS Dry Conditioner is actually crazy cool! The unique technology penetrates the hair fiber, controlling water loss and making hair softer and more pliable. The end result is as good as a regular rinse off conditioner. Leaving your hair super smooth!

    STEP BY STEP RECAP / HOW TO USE IT?

    Shake, spray by holding the can 20-30cms away from your hair applying it mid-length to the ends.

    HAIR REFRESHERS

    Who doesn’t struggle with post-braai-smokey hair? You can save that freshly washed hair from yet another wash by using one of these nifty little Hair Refreshers. (It makes you feel like you’ve walked straight out of the salon!) They’re handbag sized for your convenience, and they’re the perfect little tool to use to freshen up your hair throughout the day. It’s also got the same scent reactivation qualities as the other products. Think of a hair perfume on steroids, which comes in 3 different scents, is alcohol-free therefore nourishing, tames frizz and controls static.

    STEP BY STEP RECAP / HOW TO USE IT?

    Shake & Spray as much as you need to! I personally like to do one big hold, spray and wind around the world motion aka my head till I’m smelling like I just stepped out the salon.

    The Dry Shampoo’s and Dry Conditioners come in a handbag size too, so you can touch up your hair on the go without having to carry around a bigger bottle. Plus if you’re like me and you lose your lids for everything, most of the products are designed with a rotating lid locking mechanism (so if you lose the top part you’ll be safe from spillage in your bag!).

    If you’re wondering where to find these nifty WATERL<SS products you can find them at select Clicks stores nationwide (mostly CPT for now) or on Clicks online.
    They’re priced from R70 – R150 (ranging from handbag sized to the bigger bottle sized.) 

    I hope this blog post has given you a little more insight on all things WATERL<SS, and how you can have fresh, beautiful hair without a single drop of water!

  • It’s been an amazing partnership over the past few months; I have honestly seen such a change in my skin from its glow to just feeling and looking super duper nourished.
    I always try not ordering the same thing each month to really enjoy the variety they have to offer so here are my June favorites:

  • Good Morning Beauties, and welcome to my everyday super hero, the Daily Superfoliant!

    Before I tell you about the new additional to my skin routine (and yes I am LOVING having a routine these days) I’d like to hit you with some pretty narly facts about your skin and pollution. Did you know that 88% of us breathe air that is below the world health organizations safety standards? Or that some cities have more than 161 days of unhealthy breathing air per year? Or that after 8 hours in unhealthy air, your skin will have 1 gram of pollution adhesion’s?

  • Hi there babes!

    All right so before we get into this blog post I have a confession to make, I am indeed or used to be the girl who washed her face with soap. I left make up on over night and pretty much had NO form of facial routine. This wasn’t because I didn’t want to; I think I just didn’t know where to start or what was best for my skin.

    So basically I went to Dermalogica for a free skin mapping consultation, where the skin care professional got close up and personal to my pores to see what was going on. After a quick free check in, a skin care routine was created that would best suit my skin and lifestyle.

    On that note, here are the products that make up my new daily skin routine!

    STEP ONE – THE PRECLEANSE
    Now this is my personal favorite! When I was a soap face washer I would probably need to wash my face around 4/5 times to get it mildly make up free and still have a messy towel afterwards. The Precleanse is an oil-based product you apply on your face before you wet or clean it. The oil sticks to all the dirt & make up before you even get to the actual skin that needs to be washed.


    STEP TWO – SPECIAL CLEANSING GEL
    A refreshing gel that smells amazing! Leaving the skin feeling soothed, light and a maximum of one wash after the Precleanse.

    STEP THREE – DAILY RESURFACER
    Okay so basically a miracle worker. The Daily Resurfacer is the exfoliation process best suited for those with sensitive skin or allergies (which I have been blessed with both… ha ha) So instead of using a grain or bead like exfoliator, I have been allocated these little finger hats of goodness. Essentially each finger hat contains little Pac Men helpers that eat away at the dead skins cell on your face, leaving you with an exfoliation that leaves your skin soothed and not full of red blotches or dryness.

    STEP FOUR – ULTRA CALMING MIST
    Now this step I use mainly in the AM as I find the Skin Smoothing Cream suits me better at night. This baby you just sprites on your face to leave it feeling fresh AF! The mist instantly soothes sensitivity that may have been caused by the Daily Resurfacer (which it shouldn’t) but in the bazaar incident that it does, this baby has your back. Not only is it a perfect STEP FOUR, its also a perfect STEP ALWAYS! I carry this around with me and give my face some extra hydration after instructing a class or even after a work out if I’m on the go. Remember your sin is your biggest organ so we need to keep it hydrated!

    STEP FIVE – SKIN SMOOTHING CREAM
    Pretty much all you need to know is in the name if I’m being honest. If my skin is feeling super dry I will use it both in the AM & PM, however starting off with so many products It has suited me best just at night.

    STEP SIX – SKIN HYDRATING MASQUE
    This is some powerful shizniz y’alls! If you have every looked for the hydrating supreme mask look no further! Like the hero of the night, while you sleep this champion is fighting off those fine lines making sure you are looking fresh AF the next morning.

    STEP SEVEN – MULTIVITAMIN POWER FIRM
    Now this is a real big girl step in my life, and I did have some questions to whether I really needed an eye cream at the tender age of 26. However as my mama always told me, prevention is better than fixing! So here I am, placing magic on my eyes one night at a time.

    Feeling a lot like Jenny from the block, I will always know where I came from using soup, but dam it feels good to be looking after my skin like a rock star!

     

    All my love,
    Cands
