So, to basically reverse the unevenness that your darker skin tone has bestowed upon you, Vaseline has created their Healthy, Even Tone range.

Tried and tested: Best product for getting rid of blackheads and whiteheads

As you may have already gathered, I’ve recently been having a major love affair with Dermaceutic – so when they offered to send me a tub of their Mask 15 (basically an at home version of their Mask Peel) to try out at home, I was only too happy to say YES, YES, YES!

Tried and Tested: Best affordable lip balm for dry, chapped lips

A while ago, I told you guys all about the Blistex Simplex and Sensitive Lip Balm which really did wonders for my dry, chapped lips – it even reversed the darkness on my lips caused by a lipgloss that I tried out. Anyway, even though I really loved it, I felt that paying +/- R50 for 5ml balm that only lasts me about 2 months wasn’t really worth it. So I set out to find its dupe . And lo and behold, I did.

My new go-to treatment for reducing dark marks, acne scars and combatting breakouts

Pigmentation, acne scars and dark marks haunt almost everyone one of us. We find them unsightly and a self-esteem killer, so we feel forced into wearing makeup to cover them up because most of the products that claim to lighten marks either don’t work or contain harmful chemicals, like hydroquinone, which is a big no-no!

For a while I used the Lavender and Myrrh Facial Healing Oil from The Victorian Garden and even though it did help to lighten marks, minimal results could only be seen after 3-6 months of daily use.
I finally decided to try out the Milk Peel from Dermaceutic as I had heard tons about it from others, on how it lightened their marks and just gave them great skin overall.

My Skin Journey with Dermaceutic and Dr Ridhwana Vawda

If you’ve been following my blog since its inception in 2013, then you are definitely aware of the battle that I’ve been fighting in regard to my skin.
My skin is very much prone to breakouts and is so reactive that most products do not agree to it. During Ramadaan (June/July), my skin took a turn for the worse and I broke out on my forehead, cheeks, jawline and even on my chin – it was just total insanity.

I finally decided that it was time for a change and as fate may have it, I made that decision just a few days before I attended Dr Ridhwana Vawda + Dermaceutic’s Promo Day.

Rain Africa Event 2015

I cannot believe that it’s been so long since I’ve updated Veiled Beauty. I had so many posts already written up, including a review on some POND’S, Tressemè and Nature’s Carnival goodies, and had snapped all the relevant photos for VB too – unfortunately, my dearest camera, with the above mentioned photos, and my laptop, with all of the posts, was stolen and I basically lost everything.

I’ve been so bummed about it that I couldn’t bring myself to blog or take photos for any new blog posts, solely because I have to use this crappy iPhone camera after I’ve gotten so used to my DSLR 😔.
Anyway, I’m trying to move past it now and hopefully will be more regular here on VB. Also, I do apologize if my blog photos, from this post onwards, are kind off sucky, but it really is the thief’s fault. On to the event..
