Something old, something new, nothing borrowed and something blue. Current skincare routine October to November/December. It’s been precisely 7weeks since I posted a routine, I decided to update a couple new products in my regime to target ageing and hyperpigmentation. Details are as follows:

A gentle exfoliating water developed to smoothen skin tone and texture. Removes dead skin cells smoothest dull rough skin.
MANDELIC ACID 5%
HOUT TUYNIA CORDATA EXTRACT
VERDICT I recently purchased this product but the minute I read the ingredients , I knew it was a must try. There are a few acids I love using in the treatment room; mandelic acid is one of them. It belongs in the AHA family but much gentler than the other acids. It’s great for most skin types, it has a number of benefits from anti aging to hyperpigmentation. It’s fantastic. I just started using this product this week as part of my PM but I plan to report back with the full review soon.

It adds radiance and luminosity to the skin to substantially improve the complexion and stimulate the skin to encourage collagen.
