I’m not going to lie, I’ve been using Organics Kids Funtangly Detangling Spray on my own hair because it smells too good not to – Imagine the sweetest apple scent with the slightest hint of bubblegum and you’ve hit jackpot. As an added bonus (or primary function if you insist) it’s a really good detangler that doesn’t make my hair oily. Score!
Get it for around R45 from supermarkets and pharmacies.
My beloved Garnier Micellar Water is now available in a nifty 125ml bottle, which looks positively tiny next to the full sized 400ml version. I still maintain that I can’t really tell the difference between most of the micellar waters on the market, so might as well go for the most affordable option then. They’ve also added Micellar Cleansing Wipes to the lineup which I honestly haven’t tried yet because I don’t get along with wipes all that well in general. I will still give them a go and report back if I love them.
Get the dinky 125ml Garnier Micellar water for R35 (400ml is around R80)
The new Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF50 sunscreens are the business. I’ve been using the clear and light tint Aquafluid versions and I’m sold on both. They’re light milk formulas with a dry touch feel that I can really appreciate in summer when even the thought of a thick day cream is enough to break me out in a sweat. An added bonus is that you can apply makeup immediately afterward – there’s no drying/setting time required. I can’t recommend this highly enough if you don’t like the feel of heavy products on your skin.
R200 each, available from Dis-Chem, Clicks & Dermatologists.
