My Weekend in Products

“My beauty regimen is ‘my time’. A time for me to slow down and check in with how I am feeling: both emotionally & spiritually.


It’s important to have this down time; every woman needs it to regroup after a long day.”

Agadir Argan Oil: Spray treatment | as I tend to colour my hair quite often and for years, my hair has become quite dry at times. Argan oil is one of the best things for your hair to hydrate it; and argan oil is one of the best products to use.

Garnier Organics Lavandin: Smooth & Glow Facial oil | on a weekend I like to reduce the number of skin care products I use to give my skin to breath & reguvenate.

I have been a huge fan of facial oils for a long time as it gives perfect hydration to your skin, and this particular one soothes you as you apply it with the soft sent of lavandar. I apply this one first in the mornings and at night. The next day, my skin is glowing and hydrated. I use this also at night.

Le Tan Uber Glow Face | I only discovered this product just over a year ago, and I have never looked back! Its a gentle tanning product that’s enriched with aloe vera for hydration; and you only need 3 – 4 drops of this – you can mix it in with a moisturiser or serum and it gives your face a beautiful sun-kissed glow.  It helps to make me look more awake, and healthy looking.

Palmers Face Oil: skin therapy soil | Sometimes if I know that I’m not going to leave home at all, then this is the one product I will only use for during the day. Palmer products are one of my favourite brands and have really impressed me with how my skin (face & body) feel and look.

This face oil helps to improve fine lines, uneven skin tone. It has retinol, vitamin C and vitamin e. Perfect ingredients that your skin needs. I use this also at night.

Maybeline Instant Age Rewind: eraser concealer | This has become of my favourite concealers in a long time! It has a gentle sponge applicator that helps to glide over and erase dark circles and fine lines. You see the change immediately!

WOW Factor Lacura Mascara (Aldi brand) | This is one of THE best mascaras I have ever used! It doesn’t leave a spiderey wet look, no clumpiness and coats each lash of mine – pretty much giving it that ‘WOW Factor’!!  I went back a few days later to Aldi, and bought four more of this product as Aldi only ever keeps special products around for a week. Best investment. Ever.

What I Use: On a Weekend | Style & Life by Susana

Go Healthy: milk thistle | I take one capsule every day, in the morning. It helps to support liver function and remove toxins.

Skin Republic: Platinum + Diamond Powder | I’ve been a huge fan of Skin Republic products for a very long time. They deliver what they advertise & promise, and more. I put this on my skin after I’ve cleansed my face and as I’m getting dinner ready.

I make sure I leave it until I feel every inch of my face is dry and tight. Then slowly peel it off. This product leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and pulls out black heads.

Hyaluronic Acid: Face Mask | I use these products at least 3 times a week, once we have had dinner and we are chilling out watching television. These are just pure divine! It provides long lasting hydration, penetrates into the skin, helping it feel firmer.

Any left over serum, I will spread it all over my neck, chest and hands. Those three areas are super important as well to not forget as they one of the first areas to show signs of ageing.

The Ordinary: Pycnogenol | This serum is pure perfection! It is a powerful antioxidant that helps your skin improve its natural levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen. As soon as I put this on, my skin drinks it in immediately!

SUP ZZZ: Sleep 25s | Since my fathers death 10 years ago, I have suffered and battled with insomnia. And for a long time, I did use prescribed sleeping tablets, and after a while I searched herbal sleeping aids. While some were OK, I never ever felt well rested after a nights sleep or I just felt more tired, grumpy the next day. I came across this brand one day at Woolworths and thought I would try it out.

Well, let me just say their products are amazing and actually do work!! They are all natural, using blends of herbs, valerian and magnesium. Because I have an over active mind at night, this product will actually ease & calm your mind. And soon enough you find yourself deep in the land of sleep. Its amazing!

Every weekend the beauty, skin care and health products aren’t always the same.  I do tend like to mix it up every so often so as to not allow my skin or body to get used to the same products for long periods of time – this way, my skin and body reap all of the benefits.

What are some of your weekend products you tend to use, and whats your favourite? I’d love read about it in the comments below.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone. Stay safe xoxo
