Monthly Favourites: September

This past month absolutely flew past, and here are my favourites!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

This budget friendly alternative to other micellar water brands costs less than R100 for a giant 400 ml bottle. It does the job of removing makeup brilliantly and I'm super chuffed. I raved about this here if you would like to go read the full review.

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation in "20 Sand"

I'm more of a BB cream girl, but oh my goodness did I fall for this foundation! I reviewed it here and I'm still loving it. It mattefies my skin without making it look flat and powdery and it lasts for hours. Possible Holy Grail status...

Oh So Heavenly Bubble Balm in "Vanilla cupcake"

Everyone seems to be jumping on the "bubble balm" bandwagon that was made so popular by EOS. Where EOS lipbalms cost around R100, these Oh So Heavenly lipbalms cost R25. There are only three flavours, and I chose the vanilla cupcake scent. The packaging is exactly the same as those of EOS, and I find that I actually prefer the texture of the OSH lipbalms. I can't comment on the ingredients list, so I don't know how "natural" the ingredients are, but I love the vanilla smell and the slight gloss it leaves on my lips.

Cargo Water Resistant Blush in "Bali"

I recently picked up this tinned blush at a Clicks sale (as I do all my other Cargo products). It claims to be a water resistant blush which, according to their website, is supposed to be both sweat proof and weather proof. I can't really vouch for this as blush never tends to last on my makeup-eating skin. It is, however, an amazing blush. The texture is fine and it applies beautifully. The colour is also a stunning pink which adds just the right amount of warmth to my cheeks.

Vichy Eau Thermale Spa Water

This is quite a recent addition to my favourites list, as I've only recently started using it. The mist is super fine and instantly cools and refreshes my skin. I took it on our weekend away and it was an absolute godsend in the heat!

What were your favourites for the past month? Let me know in the comment section!

Until next time!



  1. That blush is such a pretty colour! I've never seen Cargo products before, I must keep an eye out

    1. It is! I don't think Cargo cosmetics ever caught on here. Their makeup is expensive and the brand is relatively unknown in SA. You should look in your Clicks's sale boxes, ours always have a lot of stuff even though that branch never even stocked Cargo! Thanks for commenting!

  2. I also don't think I've ever seen the Cargo brand - I must keep an eye out because that color is too dern pretty!!
    Can't quite believe you managed to post a September favorites on the FIRST day of October - obviously you're killing it in the blog world :)

    1. Hahaha Jane, you crack me up! :D Thanks for commenting and let me know if you find any Cargo goodies. x
