PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT beauty queen, advisor, whatever you wanna call it. I do what works for me.
I finally found the light! the skin light! (What?)
Lulu & Marula is Cape Town based skin care products. It’s all ‘el natural’ and it will change your life. (like seriously!)
Let me tell you about my experience…
Before Lulu & Marula I was one of those people that only would use cream once or twice a week and slept with makeup and all of those BAD HABITS but one day I actually stopped to look at my skin in the mirror (like really really look) and it didn’t have any light and it was dry and I was starting to get pimples. (I never had pimples, not even through my teenage days.) Funny enough that day I went to one of my good friends Instagram and I saw her post about Lulu & Marula – I spoke to Emma about them and she could only say amazing things so I knew it was time to take care of my skin! (Emma is one of those girls that will only advice on products if she really really thinks they are good. http://www.emmajanenation.com/)
I’ve been using LM* for only 4 weeks and I already got so many compliments on the way my skin looks. My skin is soft, hydrated and healthy – It actually shines because it has life. I haven’t got pimples in so long and one thing I wasn’t expecting that happened was that because Lulu&Marula has the most amazing smells (SO RELAXING!) I use those 10 minutes at night and in the morning as ‘ME’ time. I light my candle in the morning so by the time I am out of the shower my room has a beautiful smell and I then put some soft background music. Once I do all of that I am ready to treat myself.

First Product: Refreshing Tonic Mist – I use this in so many different forms but normally I will come out of the shower and spray my face a few times and let it sit. I also use it sometimes when my makeup seems very dry and without life during the day.
Second product: Purifying Treatment Oil – This is like a moisturiser, but better. I use around five drops of the oil on my skin and it’s amazing. I then let it set for 15 minutes and if I am going out I put little makeup on and that’s that!
At the moment I am finishing an Instant Foaming Cleanser from Caudalie that is also amazing but after I am definitely buying the Balancing Cleansing Bar because Local is Lekker and I am one of those weirdos that like to use the same brand on every product and also because I know how INCREDIBLE LM* is!
I don’t have a bath at the moment but they also have calming bath oils that I am dying to try! Check all the products: http://www.luluandmarula.com/.
One thing I’ve learned this year was that taking care of ourselves is so important and that no matter if you in a relationship or not you should always make time for ‘Me time’. Start by taking care of your skin. It’s just a few minutes and we all need to start somewhere. – I’m saying this because I know how scary it is to start taking time for ourselves if you dependent on someone else. It happened to me. I got so caught in my relationship that I was depending all my happiness on Bradyn. It made my relationship s*** and I was super unhappy.
Since I changed that, we have a great relationship and I gain Self-love. I can be alone in my own thoughts and I am safe and happy. I actually love soccer nights now. in another post I will speak more about me time.
