Manly Manicure Monday with Sorbet MAN

Listen up gents – Sorbet don’t only favour the fairer sex, they think you deserve some grooming too and because of this they have launched their male-only grooming emporium. Think beards, think musky smells, think all things manly – they’ve got you covered.

Sorbet launched their very first man-porium in September 2014 in Sandton City and are now following suit with opening the next in the chain line – a store in Bedfordview at Village View Shopping Centre. Sorbet Man

They understand looking good is not always as easy as the woke-up-like-this that you guys pull off so well and sometimes need some added grooming. Don’t think of it as a salon, think of it as a way to accentuate your manly ways with an added touch of polished perfection. They do not want the treatments to be seen as flash but they want their guests to feel relaxed, not intimidated and invited in a discerning manner.

The treatments on offer range from facials for tip-top skin care, to hair colour treatments, massages and “Man Plan” packages including the flagship, The 19th Hole: haircut, hot towel shave and a manicure. All of their treatments include complimentary whiskey, espresso and WIFI.

Sorbet MAN stocks internationally renown brands like Dermalogica, Blue Beards, Redken and KST.

If Sorbet is good enough to keep the ladies in your life looking on point there is no reason why Sorbet cannot make you feel good about your skin, hair and overall well being.

For more information on Sorbet MAN, check out Sorbet’s website.

Ladies, you are welcome to spoil the men in your life easily; and no worries, you’re welcome gentleman! ;)

DermaFix BB Cream

A little while ago Fi sent me samples of this BB cream to test. I am however not a BB cream lover at all because they sometimes claim to be something that they aren’t. So most of the times I try a BB cream once and feel so disappointed that I end up going back to using my trusty foundation daily.


I actually loved the product in the sample so much that I ended up purchasing myself the full size product. Here are my reasons for loving this product so much:

  1. It applies like a dream and for some reason I don’t need to apply a primer when I use this product.
  2. It gives maximum coverage, and this is the first time that I have come across a BB cream that gives me the desired coverage I want.
  3. It sits nice and tight on my skin, yet my skin is able to breathe.
  4. It lasts. My skin looks radiant and flawless the whole day.
  5. It has a SPF25. Great for me as I have now eliminated 2 steps in my morning beauty routine. No need for primer or SPF.
  6. The pump dispenser works like a dream.
  7. It does not smell of anything and does not irritate my skin in any way.


“The DermaFix Corrective Coverage range is formulated to provide 4-in-1 benefits to variety of skin care concerns and skin tones, these benefits include;

  1. Treat the skin with high levels of active skin care ingredients.
  2. Moisturise and smooth dehydrated skin.
  3. Prime and perfect the skin’s surface.
  4. Camouflage and colour correct the skin’s tone.”

It contains active ingredients like Vitamin E, Soy Peptides, Powerful Antioxidants. They come in 3 shades, Light, Medium and Dark. My skin tone is very milky and most of the time I struggle to just find a product that matches my porcelain complection, and I was surprised to see that the light colour was a perfect match for me.

They come in a 32ml pump bottle and they retail for R250, and you can purchase them from Beautyworx online shop, and I just want to give a shout out to Beautyworx for their amazing customer service!

Seems like Dermafix has restored my faith in BB creams!

Labello Lip Butters

Sometimes, being a beauty blogger has perks like receiving random parcels at your house with loads of goodies in to try! Labello were kind enough to think that little old Pout Perfection deserved some loving and decided to share their brand new range of lip butters with us!

Check out their cute little advert which is all about sharing!

As Labello says, the Lip Butters are your BBF‘s, or BEAUTY BEST FRIEND and they will become a handbag essential!

Winter, no matter if its wet or dry always takes a toll on my lips and they always suffer. Dry, cracking lips plus excessive makeup is never a good combination and since starting to use one of the three that I was sent to try it is slowly growing on me… even though I am not a huge fan of lip products that I need to stick my fingers in for my lips but since starting to use them, I’ve quickly got over it and I have grown very partial to the Vanilla and Macadamia Lip Butter!! Labello Lip Butters

Other variants in the Labello Lip Butter collection are Raspberry Rose which is scented with the most gorgeous citrus undertone overpowered by cherry for a real mood lift and the Original (which I think would be perfect for those manly men who suffer from dry lips!) as this has a discreet fragrance and has a macho baby blue exterior packaging!

The formula once on your lips is quite creamy and doesn’t leave a sticky residue so your hair is quite safe even with the wind in Cape Town! The drier your lips are, the faster the product absorbs and you instantly feel relief on very dry and cracked lips.

What is even better, these little treasure pots are only R29.99 and are available at leading retail outlets and pharmacies nationwide.

Pucker up and pout with Labello Lip Butters today!!

Fino Soothe Woman will help eliminate those annoying and unsightly shaving bumps or ingrown following a wax! While calming the skin, it also moistures it and helps reduce dry, itching and other post hair removal irritations.

Other things to try if you really battle with ingrown hairs:
