Ideal Flawless Cream to Powder Foundation SPF15-Review


I have bought foundation from Avon and I have been disappointed twice when I received them the colour was too light for my skin.So last week I placed an order, this time for the Ideal Flawless Cream –to- Powder Foundation SPF15 in Caramel, the colour was perfect and this is my review.



It’s non-sticky oil free formula and lasts me almost the whole I don’t need to reapply. I like that it does not dry out my skin and provide me with full coverage. I don’t need to use powder since I started using it; it’s like a 2 in 1 foundation and with an added bonus of SPF15. So it’s a foundation that cares about your skin by having sun protection within.

I love my caramel colour and my daughter reckons that I look more beautiful with this makeup on.

REVIEW:Avon Colour Correcting Pearls

Avon pearls

Everyone is talking about these Avon Colour Correcting Pearls and I had to try them for myself and write a review, just like the original Bronzing pearls I love the packaging it’s simple and elegant for me, easy to open and use. I must say the colours are attractive when you open the container. This is my first time using such a product and I love that it gives me bright shimmery complexion.


Avon Review

Yellow reduces the appearances of purple tones such as dark under-eye circles.

Green reduces the appearance of redness like rosacea and blemishes.

Cream illuminates the face.

Lilac corrects the yellow tones that make the skin look dull.

Peach neutralizes the appearance of blue tones such as sun spots, scars and dark spots.

Final verdict
I love that they are non-flaking and gives the face a shimmery effect. The texture is wonderfully non sticky and I love the long lasting coverage also my face does not sweat after using them. They are easy to blend on the face and Avon suggests that you use a makeup brush or Kabuki Brush.


I must say they are a bit pricey when they are not on special they are R 159.95 but I bought them on special only R84.00 special ending July. You can order them from Avon representatives.

Review: Omo Handwash Laundry Liquid




Want to remove tough stains the old fashion way? Last week friday on my way home from work I saw this Omo truck with lots of boxes filled with Omo handwash laundry liquid so I decided to get myself a sample to try. Even though I wash with a machine I gave this handwash liquid a try.

Omo Handwash Liquid soap is designed for people who use their hands to do laundry.

Promises from Omo include:
>Removes tough stains faster
>Just one cap is enough
>The 750ml liquid is equals to 1kg powder
>You get about 10 washes

Omo is a popular trusted brand you can buy the product from the following stores and you can visit their websites to find a store near you:

>Shoprite (

>Checkers (

>Spar (

>Pick n Pay (

Omo Handwash Laundry Liquid is a well established brand that you can trust and so far it has delivered results .

After using the product over the weekend yes I used my hands to wash a few clothes and I noticed the follow
The soap has a very pleasant smell
One cap of the liquid soap is really enough as it lasts long throughout the wash.
Pre-soaking the clothes helps with removing the stains and didn’t use a lot of strength to wash

Also noticed that the soap is a little harsh on the hands so I suggest you put lotion on your hands after doing the laundry

Review: Demelan Cream


I started using this cream a wee ago and so far I am happy with it. Demelan cream evens skin tone in hyper pigmentation.In dermatology, hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin or nails caused by increased melanin.

The cause of hyperpigmentation include inflammation, UV exposure and hormone imbalance. It is available over the counter and it mostly recommended by dermatologist to treat hyperpigmentation.

The cream contains:
Kojic Dipalmitate
Glucolic Acid.

Its crucial to use sunscreen of at least SPF15 while using this product because it will may your skin more sensitive to the sun.

If you are suffering from scarring from ezcema, have dark spots’marks from using contraceptive and any other pigmentation Demelan cream may be just the product for you.

Apply every second day to the affected areas.
