Avene || Its like rain, but better!

So, we got sent Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray by Rubybox to test and tell, and boy! we are impressed with this product.

Now forget stressing about irritated skin, rash and the after shaving math. This easy to use product is a must have. I was working on an event onsite for just over a week, and I already knew that my skin is going to go south and I would have to stress about fixing once my event was over.  I hate looking drab even if i'm not wearing any make-up i still strive for a good skin glow, and I honestly hate wearing my exhaustion on my face.



Each night after working, I'd get to the hotel, take a shower and spray this awesome rain in a tin on my face, as per the instructions, leave it on for a few minutes and pat my face dry, then I get this soothing feeling, literally feel my skin breath. I also tried the product after shaving, because, well, my skin hates razors and shaving creams. I would just spray a little after shaving, follow the same instructions and forget I shaves, how cool!?

NEW FOUND TRICK:

Did you know that the Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray also works as a making up setting spray?

Summer Sixteen Looks for all Occasions

Beautiful People,

Were naturally Summer babies and nothing brings us more sadness than the fact that its about to come to an end. Before we say goodbye to summer we would love to share some our favorite looks with you.

Together for the summer in the beautiful city of Durban NN Style Cartel was in the mood to Slay and that we did as we came, we slayed and we conquered. Now since we now stay in separate locations we make sure to make the most of our time together putting together and trying out new looks we paint the town red. The concept of this piece is to simply showcase looks that one can put together for any time of the day weather its a beautiful day on the beach or fun filed night out on the town we’ve got just the outfits for you and what we love about them the most is the effortless simplicity which makes it easier to assemble and get moving. We’ve split our looks into 3 categories, Beach Bum’s, Street Chic and Night Out, now naturally when we go out shopping we don’t have a preferred shop or look at the price tag because once we see it and fall involve we BUY IT! so we definitely encourage you buy what you love were here to guide you of course.  

Beach Bum’s!!!

We’re such water babies so with out a doubt our first look has to be beach wear. When going to the beach we love wearing light & cooling colors, sheer clothing and iti biti bikinis…

Mehlo’s look was inspired by the white sandy beaches of Cape Town with her White Shirt Dress and her sexy black bikini with a sexy touch of pink.

Fufu opted for a eastern inspired Kaftan dress with gold detail and a tropical jungle green bikini form Jay Jays.
