Hi guys, I am back with another skin care and beauty post and trust me more are coming.
I have decided to focus on beauty and skin care more because it is something I have developed so much interest in and I though why not share that with you guys?So here we are and to more beauty posts.
I have compiled beauty products under 10,000tshs (5$ Approximately) and their benefits.Enjoy!
1.Rose water – real value
First of all thanks to miss @soafricane of soafricane.com for sharing more uses of rose water (check out the hair and beauty category on her blog).
I have used rose water in the past to make a facial paste of sandal wood and turmeric powder but I did not know it mainly worked as a toner .
For 2,500/= Rose water will give you numerous benefit from numerous uses on the skin but one it works as a very good toner.I have been using it for atleast two weeks now and I have been seeing the results.Toning is really important when taking care of your skin and if you can not afford the big names.Here is one that is cheap and very skin friendly.
2.Coconut oil – Minara.
We know that saying that goes “coconut water fixes everything”?(I laughed so hard at the joke that suggested you sprinkle it on your bank account).Yes here is coconut oil for 1,500/= .The thing I do not like about it is the funny strong smell.I love the smell of coconut oil but I just don’t know what happened to this one.But that is not a problem because you can mix it with another oil or body lotion to neutralize the smell.Also you can make your own coconut oil at home and if you live on the coast like me coconuts are easily accessible. Coconut oil is a good organic moisturizer for the skin.Also research suggests that it increases hydration and reduces water loss for dry skin.
3.Pure Deodorant -Dove
I got this deodorant for around 9,000/= it is antiperspirant,does not make you feel dry but it feels like a thin paste has been placed on your skin. so if you prefer fresh dryness you might consider other brands of deodorant such as nivea which also do not cost anything beyond 10,000/=. But reading through the ingredients in different products it just scares me and makes me wish I did everything organically at home.I would like to try a DIY for a deodorant and see how that works.
4.Make up removal wipes – Depend
Make up wipes are a must they ease the whole process of removing make up from your skin and also you will not like foundation clogging up your pores if not well removed.Make up wipes are one of the products you need for removing your make up. These ones costed me 8,000/= and I got them from Atsoko slipway branch.
5. Liquid eye liner – Miss rose
I bought this one from a street hawker when I was at the saloon.Those guys always have something you will want to buy or will just make you buy something,thats for me. I bought this one for 5,000/=.I don’t think it is 24 hours and water proof as it says but it has lasted me up to 8 good hours average.I am sure you can find this on one of the beauty stores around.
6. Baby Lips – Maybelline
I put on lip balm overnight before bed and during the day and I though why not try this one out and so I bought this for 7,000/= from Atsoko slipway also.It feels good when applied and give a good shine and adds a little color to the lips but you might need to re – apply it now and then.
I will be sharing more beauty finds and reviews and I am surely adding a beauty category on the changes that will take place on here.
