Review: Wet N Wild PhotoFocus

I've been a big fan of Wet N Wild cosmetics ever since they launched in South Africa. Most of their products are high quality and their prices are very affordable. Their eyeshadow trios and eyeshadow palettes are some of my favourites. Their PhotoFocus range is fast becoming a favourite in my makeup bag and today I'll show you some of the products I have acquired from the range and let you know my thoughts on them.

PhotoFocus Eyeshadow Primer

It all started with an eyeshadow primer... About a year ago I was looking for a new eyeshadow primer and I happened to see this one from Wet N Wild. At R130 I was a bit sceptic as that is quite a lot to pay for a drugstore eyeshadow primer. However, I quickly fell in love with this product. It comes in a 10ml tube and it will last you a long time as you really only need a tiny bit at a time. The texture reminds me of a NYX eyeshadow primer I once used (the one with the doe foot applicator, I can't recall the name now). It's very creamy and spreads easily onto the lid without tugging at the skin. If you apply too much it will leave you with a weird white cast after you've set it with powder, so be warned! That being said...this is the best eyeshadow primer I have used except for the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potions (and those are very expensive). My eyelids are extremely oily and even on days where I don't wear eyeshadow, I still apply this to my lids as they will otherwise be creasy and gross by 17:00. It really prolongs my eyeshadow looks and I can highly recommend it.

PhotoFocus Foundation in "Soft Beige"

After watching Tati from the Glam Life Guru profess her love for this foundation, I knew I had to get it when it launched in South Africa. I trust her opinion so if (1) she loves it, (2) it's available in South Africa, and (3) it's affordable, I'm definitely going to try it. The foundation claims to eliminate photo flashback (no white cast when your photo is taken with the flash on) under seven light conditions with top smartphone models, and both with and without flash. Now I haven't tried any of these claims, but I can say that I am really enjoying this foundation. 

The glass bottle looks very high-end and it's nice and heavy. The cap twists off and you get a spatula-type applicator to apply the foundation with. As you can see from the above photo, things are bound to get messy real soon. I scoop out a tiny bit on the back of my hand and then either apply dots to my face, or directly dab my beauty sponge on the back of my hand before bopping it onto my face. The texture of the foundation is a bit thicker than a serum foundation, but more liquidy than, say, the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation or the essence Fresh & Fit Awake Make Up foundation. I personally prefer a more liquidy foundation as I find it easier to apply and to slightly sheer out. The foundation looks like skin but does offer enough coverage to hide imperfections and blemishes. I will continue to use this and I'm sure I'll still like it after a few more weeks. This retails for R100 but the shade range is very limited.

PhotoFocus Concealer in "Light/Medium Beige"

When I bought the foundation I also picked up this concealer. I can't remember all the details, but I think Tati said that she loved the foundation but not the concealer. Anyway, I still wanted to try it out for myself. The concealer comes with a doe foot applicator and is quite creamy, but not as creamy as my beloved Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer. It applies nicely with a damp beauty sponge, but I would've like it to be a bit more creamy. It's also a bit warmer than the foundation, but not so much that it looks weird when applied on top of the foundation. It doesn't crease or cake under my eyes and it goes nicely with the foundation, and for R65, it's a steal.

PhotoFocus Pressed Powder in "Neutral Beige"

I was looking for a new powder and this domed pressed powder looked really interesting. I haven't really used it a lot so I can't comment on the staying power or the coverage, but I can say that it is extremely soft and finely milled. It's also a breeze picking up product on a brush, even if the brush is quite fluffy. I have the feeling that if you're oily skinned but you don't like the look or feel of a liquid foundation that this might do the trick for you. At R90 this is also a very good price for a high-quality pressed powder.

Wet N Wild products are currently on a 3-for-2 special at Clicks (online and in-store). I'm thinking of picking up another eyeshadow primer as mine is almost empty, as well as a contouring kit, and maybe a mascara. What are your picks? Let me know in the comments section! Come on, enable me...

Until next time!

Review: Physicians Formula Butter Range

After watching many overseas bloggers rave about these products, we finally have the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzers and Butter Blushes on our shores! In South Africa, Physicians Formula (PF) is sold exclusively at selected Dischem stores. I've never really paid much attention to the brand except for a blush here and a CC Cream there. Ever since the Butter range landed on our shores everyone is stalking the shelves feverishly in the hopes of getting their hands on a blush or a bronzer.

True to form we're not getting the entire range in South Africa, but we are however getting about three blushes and one or two bronzers (although I've only managed to find one). They aren't very cheap - you're looking at around R210 for a blush or a bronzer. That being said, the pans are nice and big so you'll get lots of use from it. The bronzer is also a bit larger than the blushes (11 g versus 7.5 g worth of product).

I bought two blushes and a bronzer (one I bought on their recent Beauty Fair when they had 20% off all PF products). I also bought the Argan Oil and Coconut Primer, but more on that in a later post. The blushes are in the shades "Plum Rose" and "Natural Glow", while the bronzer is in the shade "Light Bronzer".

The packaging of both the bronzer and the blushes are super bright and fun with a very summery feel. The packaging is quite sturdy but quite bulky, so maybe not be the best for travel. The packaging is pretty much a trademark of PF: round plastic compact and when you open it there's a pan of blush/bronzer and when you lift that up there's a small brush and a round mirror. I don't use the brush but I always think the PF packaging is super cute. Then there's the smell: both the bronzer and the blushes smell like coconut. The overseas bloggers like to say it smells like holiday, and I've heard other people say that none of their holidays ever smelled like artificial coconut, but I digress. I personally love the warm coconutty scent, but if you don't, don't worry: it dissipates within a few minutes of application.

The texture of both the bronzer and the blushes is very silky and, well, buttery. Brushes pick up a nice amount of product although all the shades I've chosen look incredibly natural on my skintone. Plum Rose doesn't really look plummy or rosy to me and I have to say that it's my least favourite of the three, just because of the fact that it doesn't really show up on my skin. Natural Glow is a beautiful pinky gold and looks more like a highlighter than a blush if you build it up. Light Bronzer looks incredibly natural on me but it's possible to build it up. It's better to have to build up a bronzer than having to tone it down! I think I might need the darker bronzer, but at the time my local Dischem only had one or two compacts of the light bronzer left.

Below you can see swatches of, from top to bottom, the bronzer, "Natural glow", and "Plum rose".

I can't really say anything about the wear time of these products as blushes and bronzers don't tend to last on my skin in any case. I do, however, enjoy using all three of them and I personally enjoy the scent.

Have you ever tried any of these? Which shades should I try next? Let me know!

Until next time!

What's in My Bag?: Hospital Edition

I'm currently 37 weeks pregnant and my hospital bags are finally packed. I've been packing them on and off for weeks while I've been figuring out what exactly to pack. I've been reading up on hospital bags on blog posts, forums, magazines, and YouTube. Our hospital also gave us a booklet with a very short list that I can't figure out if it's for natural births or c-section births. My plan (or rather, my "wish") is to have a natural delivery, but I suppose you need to be prepared for anything.

My bag

For my bag I actually packed two bags: one for labour and one for afterwards. It might seem a bit excessive but when I read it it made sense to bring two separate bags. For the labour I packed a leather overnight bag that used to be my mother-in-law's. 

Inside my bag:
  • Towel
  • Face cloth x2
  • Laundry bag (for dirty clothes)
  • Sleep shirt (cheap one that I can chuck if it becomes gross)
  • Gown (for walking around in, should I want to)
  • Slippers
  • Magazine
  • Board game - Phase 10
  • Juice boxes
  • iPhone charger + cable
  • Earphones
  • Toiletry bag

In my toiletry bag I packed my usual travel bag plus a few extras: cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser, earbuds, travel size Bio-Oil, Garnier Micellar face wipes, Sorbet Spa shower gel, Oh So Heavenly hand cream, toothbrush plus holder, travel toothpaste, deodorant, hairbrush plus spare Invisibobble, nail file, wide tooth comb, floss, shampoo and conditioner decanted into travel bottles, bath lily, and CoLab Active dry shampoo (it smells amazing).

As for documents I am taking my birth plan (I downloaded one from the internet and just checked the necessary boxes), black pen for filling in forms, hospital stay confirmation (I booked my spot in December already), medical aid authorisation number, and a copy of my ID.

My second bag

For my second bag I packed a small hand luggage suitcase with wheels. Inside the bag:
  • Linen savers (I know I'll be in a hospital but I'll be mortified if I ruin the linen)
  • Travel breastfeeding pillow
  • Breastfeeding bras x2
  • Disposable panties x3
  • Panties x3 (cheap ones in case I hate the disposable ones and that I can chuck if need be)
  • Front-opening PJs x2 (front-opening for breastfeeding)
  • Maternity pads (sexy...)
  • Breast pads
  • Travel hairdryer
  • Clothes to go home in (comfy pants and maternity T-shirt)
  • Small makeup bag (primer, BB cream, powder, Beauty Blender, eyebrow products, mascara sample)

Baby's bag

I received this beautiful light grey Winnie The Pooh nappy bag from my grandmother as part of my baby shower gifts. The hospital's booklet gave a short list of what to pack in the baby's bag, but it didn't distinguish between natural births (short hospital stay) and c-section births (longer hospital stay), so we're going to have to wing it. They do give you a nappy bag in hospital containing a beanie, a teddy, nappies, maternity pads, and samples, but the head of the maternity unit told me to rather bring along extra nappies, pads, wipes, and surgical spirits. Inside the bag:

  • Packet of newborn nappies
  • Wet wipes (Dove Baby suitable for newborns)
  • Surgical spirits (for the umbilical stump)
  • Blankets x3 (one fleece, two brushed cotton)
  • Cloth diaper
  • Warm onesies x5 (two cotton, two fleecy, one fuzzy)
  • Vests x5 (two short-sleeved, three long-sleeved)
  • Socks x5
  • Hats x2

A friend of mine gave birth at the same hospital two years ago and she said what really helped her is to pack the baby's outfits into ziploc bags so that the nurses can just take a ziploc bag out instead of having to rummage through the entire nappy bag. For a going home outfit I packed an all-pink outfit: pink long-sleeved body vest, pink fuzzy onesie (that her daddy picked out, might I add), and a pink hat.

The cotton onesies are from Woolworths and Ackermans, the fleecy onesies are from Ackermans, and the fuzzy onesie is from Jet. Ackermans and Jet have the cutest baby clothes and so affordable! The vests are all either from Jet or Ackermans, and the socks and hats I can't remember.

Things that I still need to pack in my bag include my iPod, my Fitbit charger (I'm still using it), my medical aid card (still in my wallet), my ID book (still in my handbag), my prenatal vitamins, and some snacks (I'm still trying to think what to get). What would you recommend for snacks?

Until next time!

Pregnancy Update: Weeks 31-35

Time is really flying by now and I'm starting to slowly but surely freak out. I'm more than three quarters of the way there and reality is sinking in: in a couple of weeks (5!) I'll be a mom, ahhhh! A lot has happened in these past few weeks so I'm going to try and remember everything...

My birthday was on the first of February and my mother and youngest brother decided to do a road trip from Cape Town to Pretoria for my birthday. It was so cool having them here! My amazing friends also threw me a surprise baby shower on the Saturday just after my birthday so that my mom could also be there. I was one day short of 32 weeks along on my baby shower and I was sporting a very round bump, but I wasn't so big that I got tired easily. The baby shower was held at Ginger Apple (full name Ginger Apple Cafe & Culinary Architects) in Moreleta Park, Pretoria. I loved having my close friends and my mom with me, it really was a special morning! 

We played three games which I thoroughly enjoyed even though I didn't win any at my own baby shower... For the first game everyone got a bunch of teeny tiny plastic dummies. We weren't allowed to say the words "baby" or "baba": if you were caught saying it the person accusing you could demand that you hand over a dummy. The person who had the most dummies at the end of the party won a prize. For the second game I had to go around the tables with a ball of string and a pair of scissors. Everyone had to eye my bump (no measuring!) and then decide how long the piece of string should be to go around my bump. The person who got the closest to my actual measurements won a prize. The last game included 11 baby-related items thrown into a fabric bag. You were allowed to rummage through the bag all you want, but without taking a peek. You then had to write down what you felt (rubber ducky, dummy, Baby-on-board sticker, etcetera). The person who could correctly identify all 11 items then won a prize.

We had breakfast and the most amazing cake, also baked by Ginger Apple. I got to take the leftovers home and the boys were also very happy to have a slice or two! I got spoilt rotten with beautiful gifts and I also got to take home the contents of the mystery bag, as well as two cute "diaper cakes" made by my very talented friend, Natasha (who also organised the baby shower).

After my mom and brother left for Cape Town again, it was time to work on the nursery. I had gotten very antsy about how little time was left so I was very relieved when we finally got it together. My husband assembled the cot and we purchased a cot mattress and a small chest of drawers. The chest of drawers isn't the best of quality nor is it exactly what I wanted, but we were pressed for time and the price was ok. We bought a changing mattress to put on top of the chest of drawers, and the husband is currently building a wooden frame to put between the two so that the mattress doesn't slide off of the chest of drawers. We also looked around for a big and comfy chair that suited the room but was also in our budget (some of these chairs are ridiculously expensive!). We managed to go pick up the chair last weekend and it, together with the rug, makes a huge difference in the room. I bought a very cheerful (and cheap!) rug at Mr Price Home. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw the huge mat on the "Priced to go" shelf! I'm just sharing snapshots of the nursery here, I plan to do a full nursery tour later when we're completely finished (if that happens in time!).

I washed all of Olive's clothes, bedding, towels, you name it. What a mission! I decided to sort the items according to colour (whites with whites, yellows with yellows, etcetera) and it feels like it took forever to dry! Someone told me that baby clothes are supposed to hang outside in the sunshine to kill any lurking bacteria, but after about the third load of washing I just decided, you know what, these clothes have never been worn, I think it'll be ok just this once. At least I'm washing everything?!

At 34 weeks we had a maternity shoot at the Harmonie Protea Farm just outside Rayton (on the way to Cullinan). Initially I didn't want to do a maternity shoot but then my reluctance turned into FOMO and I decided to go for it. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it or to pose with my bump exposed for the world to see, I just wanted a few nice, professional pictures of me, my husband, and the bump to look back on. The protea farm was absolutely stunning and I even got to take home a bunch of proteas and fynbos. I can't wait for the photos! Hopefully they'll be ready in time for my next (and probably last, eek!) pregnancy update post.

I've also started packing our hospital bags, although I think I've packed it about twice now. I keep on forgetting what's already in the bag and then I have to take everything out and start again! I do have a list, but the list doesn't distinguish between things I have and things I've already packed in... I'm also not entirely sure what to pack in my baby's bag, so I'm packing what I think is right and then I'll wait for our hospital tour on the 11th of March.

As for me, I'm starting to feel really uncomfortable now. I know I'm growing a human, but I feel so useless at times. I can't pick up stuff (bending down is now really getting tough), I get tired easily, and everyone keeps telling me to "sit down" and "take it easy". I have a total of seven outfits that fit me and I'm wearing these outfits to work and over the weekends. I'm actually enjoying having so few options, I've found that it makes getting dressed in the mornings easier! Having seven fixed outfits (five dresses, two pairs of leggings, and two maternity T-shirts) really takes the guesswork out of getting dressed!

I'm sleeping ok, it's just a pain turning over from the one side to the other. I'm not the most peaceful sleeper and I have to turn regularly otherwise my body gets achy and sore. That being said, I sometimes struggle with aching legs. I sometimes get leg cramps but my doctor told me that I can take Slow Mag at night and that keeps the cramps away, but it doesn't always help for the leg pains. It's like my legs get sore from sleeping in one position too long, although I can't imagine that that's true. Anyone else experience this? I wake up in the middle of the night from the pain and then I flex my legs (sometimes it's just the one leg) and point my toes and go back to sleep. When I wake up the pain is usually gone. So random!

My biggest issues at the moment, however, are heat-related: I'm dying from heat (even though it's cool outside) and from heartburn! It's become a running joke at work and people laugh when I tell them we sleep with the fan on almost every night now... My poor husband dives under the duvet while I sleep on top (usually it's the other way round).  My fingers and ankles are also swollen - I can't wear my rings and I can't wear sneakers or any other closed shoes. So with my seven outfits I have a total of two pairs of shoes to wear with it, oh well.

As for the baby: Olive is growing nicely and she's kicking up a storm! She turned head-down in the past month, now we're just waiting for her to flip over so that she is facing my back, which is the optimal position to deliver in. Apparently there is enough fluid for her to turn, and she's very active, so I am confident that she'll flip over in time.

That's my 31-35 week update! If you're still reading, thanks for sticking it out! Do you have any tips for me at this stage? And must-have items for the hospital bags? Let me know!

Until next time!

New in: Dermalogica UltraCalming Duo

Allergic reactions, everyday stresses and stressors, pollution, diet, a lack of sleep - all these things can contribute to skin that doesn't look its best. Add to that sun exposure and changing weather conditions and it won't come as a surprise that many of us struggle with our skin. When I say "struggle" I don't necessarily mean acne or breakouts, but anything from an excess of oil to dry flaky skin to red and irritated skin. The two products that I'm talking about today are specially formulated to address red, irritated, and sensitive skin. 

Dermalogica UltraCalming Duo*


Sensitivity means something different to each of us: to me it means angry, red, dry and flaky skin. I have to admit, I haven't had a flare-up in a long time, but my skin keeps on being too red for my liking and no matter what I do, it doesn't go away. This is where Dermalogica's new UltraCalming Duo comes in. No matter what your level of sensitivity, these products will soothe your skin by treating the irritation and dehydration that causes your sensitivity. Both products contain a blend of botanical extracts together with Dermalogica's innovative technology. These two products can be used on their own or layered to achieve maximum benefit.

Barrier Defense Booster

The Barrier Defense Booster can be seen as the first step. It's a concentrated oil booster that soothes and nourishes the skin to restore balance. I love the packaging: the grey part on the bottom is a "button" that you lightly press (when holding the bottle upside down) to release a drop of oil at a time. The product is eye-wateringly expensive, but this way you can at least control how much you dispense at a time. I've been using this for about a week and I'm really enjoying it. Is it better than my other oils? I don't know. Does it make my skin less red and less irritated? Yes. I don't know if it's the oil or the combination of products, but my skin is definitely looking more hydrated and less red. You can purchase this for R1,220 (30 ml bottle) at all Dermalogica stockists.

Calm Water Gel

The Calm Water Gel can be seen as the second step and is a water-gel moisturiser that hydrates dry and sensitive skin. The texture is that of a normal gel moisturiser (think of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost for instance), but as soon as it comes into contact with your skin, it changes into an almost water-like consistency. It is very cool and the result of this is that you need much less product to cover your entire face. I know, many times when bloggers/brands say "you only need a little bit" it is to rationalise the price, but in this case you REALLY only need a little bit. The spreadability is incredible and the texture is luxurious without being sticky or tacky. It sinks into the skin beautifully. Of the two products I have to say that this one is my favourite. Both products also have the distinct "herby" Dermalogica smell. You can buy this for R890 (50 ml bottle) at Dermalogica stockists.
I know these products are pricey, and I'm not saying you should rush out and buy them both, but if you have the money and you do struggle with redness and sensitivity, these products might just be what you've been looking for.
Until next time!

New in: REN Perfect Canvas

I'm excited to show you a new product that was kindly sent to me from one of my absolute favourite skincare brands, REN. I love REN's Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask as well as their clay detox mask, and recently they've come up with a couple of really exciting and innovative products. One of these exciting and innovative products is launching this month and I thought I'd give you a sneak peek.

REN Perfect Canvas*

First off, the packaging is stunning. Forget the old REN packaging that we all know so well: the Perfect Canvas comes in a matte white bottle. The packaging feels luxurious and expensive and, although it shouldn't be part of your decision to buy it, it does help to justify the price a teensy bit.

When I first received this product I was unsure of what it was or how to use it. It's called a "Skin finishing serum", but the directions say to apply it after your moisturiser, thereby making it a primer.  To say I was both confused and intrigued is an understatement! The directions say to apply a few drops to your skin (after moisturiser) and then to massage it in. It's silicone-free and you can immediately feel that when applying it to your skin: it feels more like a light oil than anything else.  It doesn't feel sticky or greasy, my skin just feels nourished.

It contains "bio-actives" which boils down to probiotic extract, hyaluronans, inulin, and alpha-glucans. The probiotic extract is supposed to speed up cell recovery and epidermal growth to assist in strengthening your skin's natural barrier. I'm not going to bore you with the sciency stuff, but the bottom line is, probiotic extract promotes smooth and hydrated skin, and prevents bad bacteria from penetrating your skin. Hyaluronans convert to hyaluronic acid in the skin and increases skin hydration as well as aids in keeping your skin's barrier in tact. It also boosts the production of elastin which means less wrinkles. Now for the kicker: Inulin comes from Agave Tequilana which is the agave plant used to produce tequila! Yes, you read that correctly: you're basically slapping a tequila derivate on your face (this does somehow explain the price). Inulin is a natural filler and has a short-term lifting effect. Lastly, the alpha-glucans balance the flora on the skin (much like the probiotic extract) and encourages the growth of good bacteria. So you can see a pattern here: reduces bad bacteria, hydration, improved skin barrier, lifting, and line filling.

It claims to smooth and lift the skin and make it look naturally filled, "resulting in a matte finish and creating the perfect canvas upon which to apply make-up". I've used this a couple of times, and I must say, I like it. It feels great on the skin, in fact, it feels more like a skincare step than a makeup step. I've recently moved more towards skincare and slightly away from makeup and using this makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my skin instead of just slapping on another silicone primer that's going to clog my pores. I still need to use it some more to truly test out the claims, but so far it seems that my makeup is sitting better on my face and that it doesn't just melt off before the end of the workday.

This product is suitable for all skin types and retails for R995. You can purchase it from REN's own website, Clicks, selected Woolworths stores, and Wellness Warehouse stores nationwide.

Will you be purchasing this? Let me know in the comment section!

Until next time!

Pregnancy Perk: Dischem Baby Bag

Even before I got pregnant I read somewhere about the Dischem Baby Bag. It's a free diaper bag filled with samples and baby goodies supplied by Dischem. I think it's a really great idea as they make diaper bags accessible for everyone.

How to get the baby bag

You need to be a part of the Dischem Baby Club and have a Dischem Benefits card. Joining these clubs cost absolutely nothing. Every time you buy something at Dischem and swipe your Benefits card you earn points (just like the Clicks rewards card) which can be used as cash off on future purchases. The Baby Club is just an extension of that: you need to register your pregnancy and input your due date. When you are 20+ weeks pregnant and have 950 points on your Benefit card (I think it equates to R9.50 which really is nothing) you can go to the clinic nurse at your local Dischem for a "baby bag consultation". The nurse I went to took my blood pressure and asked me a few questions regarding my pregnancy. She explained the vaccination and immunisation schedule to me and gave me a fridge magnet with the schedule on it (injection X at Y weeks, and so on). She then gave me a slip which I had to go pay at the till: the 15 min consultation, and thus the diaper bag, cost me R35. At around 27 weeks I got a phone call from my Dischem saying that my baby bag is ready for collection. I went there with my Benefits card and I had to fill out a form while I waited for them to fetch my baby bag. And that was it!

What's in the bag?

The bag itself is a very gender-neutral black and white. It's neutral enough so that dads can carry it around without fear of looking silly (not that that should be a big consideration, but you get what I'm saying). It has a big compartment and then a smaller zip pocket in front. It also has an elastic mesh pocket on each side for bottles. It has two handles and a shoulder strap. Inside is a matching changing pad that closes with a velcro strip. The nicest part of the bag, however, is all the amazing goodies! There are a few bits and bobs for me, but most of the stuff are for Olive and some of them are things that I haven't really thought of getting (and that I now don't need to get, yay!).

For me

  • A pack of 6 Softi maternity pads (apparently normal night pads aren't going to cut it)
  • Three pairs of Softi nursing pads (breast pads)
  • A pack of three disposable panties to wear in hospital
  • A travel size hand sanitiser
  • A sample of the Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco conditioner
  • Palmer's Stretch Mark cream

For Baby

  • A sample packet of size 1 Pampers nappies
  • Sample pack of baby wipes
  • Tom & Jerry travel wipes
  • Nappy bags
  • Softi cotton wool
  • Nuk breast milk storage bottle
  • Surgical spirits (to put on baby's umbilical stump)
  • Teejel soft finger-toothbrush
  • Softi cotton buds
  • Sample Sudocrem
  • Tommee Tippee newborn dummy
  • Travel sizes body wash, shampoo, baby oil, lotion
  • Epimax lotion sample
  • Nipple cream sample
  • Bennetts massage drops sample
  • Bennetts aqueous cream sample (not pictured)

And there you have it! A beautiful baby bag filled with goodies for only R35. Apart from one or two things I'm pretty much sorted for my diaper bag! I did get another beautiful Winnie the Pooh bag from my gran, so I'll rotate the two bags to get use out of both.

Do you have one of these Dischem bags? What other goodies did you get? Let me know in the comment section.

Until next time!
