what’s on my beauty shelf


Ryan is a recent convert to water. He’s drinking it by the gallon and swears it has eradicated all sorts of concerns and ailments. The other day he said that he could see I was drinking more water because my skin was looking hydrated and glowy. Well, he didn’t say ‘glowy’ but that’s what he meant.

I was so touched by his observation that I didn’t want to say it was probably the fact that I have recently started using the amazing Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and their Advanced Time Zone moisturiser. I do drink a lot of water too!

The other products I cannot do with out include the new Dove moisturiser for dry skin, Garnier’s BB cream that I wear every day and Balm Balm‘s organic foot cream that is helping me get rid of my winter feet. My two all time must have’s are the extra intense Nivea moisturiser which I have used for years and The Body Shop‘s Shea Lip Butter. This stuff has seen me through my 20s and into my 30s. My friend Julia who lives in Harare buys me a pot every time she comes to visit. My lips love it!

My latest fragrance obsession has to be Tom Ford‘s Black Orchid. Sexy and utterly irresistible!
