These are the latest products we tried at BYY —we’re sharing our absolute beauty and wellness must-haves, so you can look and feel fabulous!

Maximum moisture

All our skins have taken a winter beating but we’ve discovered the perfect product for everything from dry and sensitive skin to eczema and irritation— Epimax Baby & Junior! Even the scaliest of skin will feel soft after use as the range is very gentle and hypoallergenic. Your skins (yes, you can use it too!) will be left smooth and hydrated without any greasy residue. 

Plus, it has no smell or colourants, so no headaches caused by strong, toxic and chemicals. The entire range from the Body Wash and Bath Oil to the Emollient to the Soap Bar, Bum Cream and Wipes are just brilliant!

Beauty bomb!

Beauty Bag offers the coolest (and extremely effective) beauty tools ever! I’m obsessed with the Patch Brand’s vitamin- infused patches…The Pimple Patch containing hydrocolloid and tea tree oil is awesome and works wonders for breakouts (I’ve had to wrestle it out of the hands of my teenage daughter) .The Recovery Patch  is a wonderful way of kickstarting your mornings—it’s loaded with glutathione, vitamin B1 and DHM for your daily dose of get-up-and-go without having to take a pill—simply stick it anywhere on your body and Voila!

I also tried SKINtamin –it has 22 clean ingredients, including cruelty-free collagen, organic amla fruit, saffron extract, resveratrol, zinc, hyaluronic acid as well as vitamins A, C, E and B12. My skin was brighter, clearer and more youthful after just 3 weeks with only 1 capsule per day! They also stock all the covetable international brands like Sol de Janeiro, Booby Tape and Glow Hub among other which we hope to review soon.

Hair hydration

Do you suffer from dry and frizzy or fine hair? Look no further than the OGX Lightweight Shampoo, Conditioner and Miracle Water. It’s sulfate free and won’t weigh your hair down. Obsessed with the Miracle Water for a hair pick-me-up. For those of us, like me, who were standing at the back of the queue when good hair was being given out, this is a total lifesaver.

Swiitch it up

We’d like to introduce you to one of our favourite local makeup brands–Swiitch Beauty makes the most divine makeup and skincare—The MonoTint is a staple in my cosmetics bag—simply swipe it onto your lips, eyes and cheeks for that rosy summer glow. I’m also a fan of their Balmy Highlighter Stick.

I’ve just been trying out the Fluffy—it mimics the look of laminated brows by separating every single brow hair, combing them up and holding them there. The hybrid gel-mousse formula goes on white, dries completely clear with no residue and holds even the most stubborn brow hairs in place but they look feathery and full.  Love it!

Super skin

I have very sensitive and (dare I say it) ageing skin—winter also took a toll. Award-winning Neostrata an amazing brand of skincare that makes a visible difference and is in a class of its own… I’m totally addicted to their Active Triple Firming Neck Cream.  Now, I’ve become very attached to The Potent Retinol Complex and Hyaluronic Luminous Lift which I’ve been using over the last month.

Formulated with the highest quality ingredients, they’ve undergone  extensive testing and I can assure you that they work absolute wonders. Retinol is known for its remarkable anti-ageing properties while hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin is known for its ability to attract and retain moisture and they work synergistically to address multiple skincare concerns.

I’ve been getting so many compliments on my skin lately—it looks and feels tighter, is plumper and is actually glowing plus I have minimised pores—one of my concerns! These creams surpassed my expectations and I’ll definitely continue to use these products from now on.

As parents, we all know how important it is for you kids (and you!) to have all the nutrients you need. We are absolutely loving the supplements from NOW Foods. DIM 200 is crucial for women to metabolise excess estrogen out of their bodies… I take it every day for optimal health. The Inulin Prebiotic Powder makes sure that your digestion is working perfectly- it simply dissolves into water with no taste at all which means your kids won’t even know it’s there.

The Collagen Jelly Beauty Complex (Sweet Plum) is my new favourite way to get my collagen fix for healthy, smooth skin. My kids love the fruity taste of the DHA Kids Chewable which makes it easy for them to get their fish oils. When their energy is a bit low, a spoonful of the Elderberry Liquid for kids does the perfect trick.

Magical mist

If you suffer from rashes or skin issues, Hypochlorous Acid Mist from Skin Logic is a must-buy for your cupboard!  It rejuvenates skin, reduces the signs of environmental damage and ageing as well as fights acne-causing bacteria. It also strengthens skin barrier, calms inflammation and reduces redness. I’ve been using it on my unsightly chest rash, and it’s worked wonders.

The Repair Mist helps to boost the skin’s ability to repair itself after trauma to the skin. This includes any aesthetic and dermatologic procedures, where it helps to speed up the recovery time of the skin. Highly recommend!
