Hi Everyone

Another weekend is gone and Monday is here. Hope you all had a great weekend and have a good week. Last week Thursday i was lucky enough to be invited to the Elemis & OPI Blogger event which was held at the Tjing Tjing rooftop bar in Cape Town.

It started off with an introduction of a few Elemis skincare products. We were able to test the featured products on our skin and chatted about each one. We were given clear containers with a little if each product to try


We tested the Pro Collagen Cleaning Balm, Gentle Foaming Facial Wash, Papaya Enzyme Peel Cream Exfoliator, a Toner (between the Lavender, Apricot or Ginseng), i choose the Balancing Lavender Purifying Facial Toner, Pro Collagen Marine Cream and the Pro Collagen Eye Renewal Anti-wrinkle Eye Cream

We then went onto the OPI products. This was the fun part. We learnt how to do Nail Art with ordinary household objects like the Toothpick, Bobbypin, Straw and more. We were introduced to the Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer colour range as well as the Primer base and the top coat. I love the Infinite Shine as it gives the look of a gel manicure with the hassles of the actual gel. It removes as easily as a normal nail poloish. My favourite colour was the Red – Unequivocally Crimson.

I had such a great day, surrounded by the very helpful and friendly girls that did the presentation, the other bloggers as well as the products.
