Covering TRESemmé , Zando & Wellness Warehouse Events

On My Nails KANGOL /// shade BitterSweet (Picture Taken at TRESemme event last week. 
 Happy Monday we made it. 

Things have been really crazy on the blog and our daily lives from imishado (weddings) to imincwabo (funerals), product launches and other things that validate that we 
are still human and alive. 
The weekend was great I did tell that Paxton was gonna win Idols SA right, 
but this post is really not about what happened this weekend but what we got up to last week. 

TRESemmé #InspiredByNYFW

Last Tuesday night TRESemmé hosted the Inspired By New York Fashion Week (NYFW)
 Hair Collection, hosted by Lalla Hirayama, the event showcased the latest hair trends straight off the NYFW runway. The hair styles were created by Ceecee Mabaso, a local stylist that TRESemmé partnered with and sent to work backstage at NYFW, alongside global TRESemmé hairstylist and stylist to the stars. 

Last night, Ceecee re-created the top hair trends that came out of New York Fashion Week, including Effortlessly Cool, On the Wild Side and Tousled Texture from the Carolina Herrera, Rebecca Minkoff, and Jonathan Simkai shows, among others. These looks were complimented by garments from local fashion designers Kisua, Mantsho and design duo Carina Louw and Natasha Jaume.

On the blog very soon, we will be recreating some of the hairstyles that were on show, so keep your eye on the look out. 

Thank you kindly for the great event TRESemmé
our experience of being backstage and then sitting front row to experience 
the fashion and hair show will never be the same again.
... & Wellness Warehouse #WellnessWithZando
Then Thursday morning we got up really early in the morning to attend a Wellness Day hosted by Zando and Wellness Warehouse
Shuuu, we tried Yoga for the first and it was rather interesting and all I can say is my body is still hurting (but in a good way), however we enjoyed the experience and will be trying it again. 

Firstly welcome Zando and the Wellness Warehouse to the blog, they will not be strangers. 

And thank you kindly for the invite, our idea of Yoga will never be the same again. 

And thank you so much for making it this far. 

Let us make this week great. 


Around Soweto Blog

Hey guys, this review has been a long time coming...and if I don't do it I won't be able to brag about the products in posts to come. Today I'm welcoming a brand that I'm familiar with as they are one of the few brands that are out there that have ventured into the Soweto market. The brand is called AFRIDERM and the very first product that I bought from them was their handlotion cause you know how much I love hand lotions. Okay okay let's get straight to the review. 

The claim: 
*Peeling Gel: Removes old skin cells, nourishes the layers beneath, and encourages skin regeneration. The gentle action clears away dry, rough patches and dark skin left by blemishes, for a smoother, even-toned face. 
*Eye Cream: Complete refreshment for fatigued eyes, soothing tired skin while improving firmness contains Aleo, Shea Butter and Green Tea. 

The product: 
It comes in clean white container and the tops are a dark toned chrome goldish 
(hope you get my explanation here - but pictures don't lie (see image below)). 

My Experience. 
When I first saw AFRIDERM at Edgars Jabulani Mall in Soweto I first gravitated towards the packages and got intrigued because it claimed to be For ALL Dark Skin Tones and I was happy because not a lot of products are made for exclusively us sisters of a darker skin tone. Secondly the packaging is gorgeous and thirdly a product that claims to target the issues that I mainly deal with which is tired dull skin, so I would say AFRIDERM got me at hello.

Trying on the peeling gel for the first time for me was a bit extra because I had an expectation that once it dries up it will actually start peeling, which it does but a small amount... Then my sister (Cindy) had to remind me that is a peeling cleansing gel and not a mask so it won't peel of that much. The peeling gel does what it claims to do and I like that it does not leave my skin feeling dry. 

The eye cream for me didn't work cause even though it is made for people with sensetive eyes like mine, I'm sure the fragrance decided to take center stage because it does smell a little scented. 

My Verdict:
Overall I'm happy with the peeling gel because although it peels it does not leave my skin feeling dry, and I would pass the eye cream. I have my eye out for their serum though on my next shopping trip.

Hope you enjoyed my review. 

See you soon.
