Lamelle Serra Restore Cream, R485.

This is like champagne, in cream form - and at such a good price!

Utilising patented lipid barrier technology, Serra Restore Cream thoroughly corrects deficient skin barrier function while leaving the skin smooth without a greasy after-feel. It is the perfect accompaniment when existing moisturisers are not providing adequate hydration to the skin or when a problematic dry skin requires thorough barrier restoration.

Yaaaas please! 

The AllDolledUP girls LOVE it too...

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, R1,325 at Dermastore.co.za.

I recently tried this on holiday in Zanzibar, and like my hourly gin and tonic, this hit the spot. It's an oil-free serum which nourishes the skin leaving it supple, smooth and radiant. Apply under your moisturiser and see it work its magic. It's not cheap, but it works like a bomb in terms of hydration and a few drops go a long way.

Filorga NCTF-Essence, R700.

Like tequila shots, this product will get the party started. The party for your skin.

Known as a 'pre-skincare' it will help boost your overall hydration and skin health. Apply to your skin after cleansing and toning (if you do that) and before applying your serum and moisturiser.

Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel, R560.

This is as refreshing as a mojito. This cooling, ice-blue gel will leave your skin fresh, shine-free (it has a matte finish) and perfectly hydrated, even in the dry winter or in very humid climates.

Also give the serum a go. SO good.

VICHY Mineral 89, R375.

This has to be the Long Island Iced Tea of skin products as it contains so much goodness! It has 15 minerals needed for healthy skin and it helps shield your skin against visible ageing and hydrates and plumps all in one. Use it as you would a serum.
