My Current Favourites – June
Sorbet BB Cream
We are halfway through June but it’s time to chat about a few of my top things at the moment. The first thing I’ll say about this BB cream from Sorbet is that I’m so bummed I didn’t try it earlier! With everything going on during lockdown and working from home, my makeup routine has become less. Having said that, I still like to wear a bit just to make myself feel better. I walked past the Sorbet shelf at clicks and decided to give it a try instead of wearing my usual foundation in the day.
It has a thick consistency so you just need a small amount. You can use your fingers to apply it but I prefer using a brush. It’s hydrating but settles nicely onto your skin after a while. Some days I add a bit of concealer. But it offers impressive coverage for a BB cream! This BB cream retails for R149.00.
Justine Tissue Oil
With the dry season currently happening in Pretoria and the cold weather hitting, my skin has been so dry. I love mixing a few drops of this tissue oil into my body lotion just to give my skin some extra nourishment. I sometimes apply it straight onto my patches of skin that are very dry. Another great way to add some to your routine is to pour a few drops into your bath.

LCN Blueberry Lip Scrub
I received this lip scrub at the end of last year but I’ve been using it more frequently this winter. June means not only dry skin but super dry lips! This is great to use at night when removing your makeup and then slathering on some lip balm. Available from LCN at R315.00
Davines Energizing Shampoo
Another product from one of my posts last year that I’ve been using a lot at the moment. The Davines Energizing Shampoo. I’m still struggling with my scalp but find some relief after using this shampoo which is specifically formulated to help with scalp issues. Thanks to the peppermint oil, this shampoo smells amazing! You can shop for it online here.
“The Woman in the Wood” by Lesley Pearse
Set in the 1960s, this book is a gripping novel by famed author Lesley Pearse. Twins, Maisley, and Duncan wake up one night to find their father committing their mother to an asylum. They are then moved from their house in London to the countryside with a grandmother they barely know.
The story takes a dramatic turn when Duncan goes missing. Everyone whisper about the lady that lives all on her own. Is she a friend or foe?
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would as you know I love the intense thrillers but this is a multi-layered story that is a page-turner. A great book to read this June. Available here at Exclusive Books
