Psssst, you don’t have to spend every penny on your kids – sometimes you need to treat yourself to something nice as well.
Here’s what’s new for moms this spring and summer:
ORLY in Country Club Khaki, R176
Available at www.indiglow.co.za
We all know that moms and polished nails don’t always go hand in hand. A manicure never really lasts when you have a toddler. We tested the ORLY Country Club Khaki, together with the bonder base coat, R210, and ORLY top coat, R210, and are happy to report that our home manicure made it through three days of washing dishes, washing bottles and doing laundry before starting to chip.
If you have a dishwasher and washing machine, your nails might even last longer.
Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Cloths, R89.98
Available from Dis-Chem
Whether you need to quickly take off your make-up for gym, or are too tired to wash your face before bed, the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Cloths are perfect for you. What do we love most about them? You don’t have to moisturise after using them as they don’t leave your skin feeling tight and dry.
INOAR Cherry Blossom Flowers Range Shampoo and Conditioner kit, R490
Available at www.inoar.co.za
This is definitely a splurge item if you’re on a tight budget. We loved the fresh, summery scent of the range and the lightness and softness of our hair after only a few washes.
Sublime Skin Contouring
Price for treatment available on request (it depends on the amount of sessions needed)

Do you have a birthday coming up? This treatment is great for moms looking for a facelift without having surgery. The Sublime Skin Contouring treatment uses combined energies to effectively stimulate collagen production and improve your overall skin quality in areas such as the eyes, brow lines, cheeks and neck. We went for a session to test it out, and couldn’t believe the result. The grooves around our digital editor’s mouth were noticeably smoother than before the treatment. And, it doesn’t hurt!
