Natuurlik Pragtig Handmade Beauty & Skincare Range


Today I'm reviewing South African Handmade Beauty & Skincare range called Natuurlik Pragtiga brand known for its high-quality, natural and handmade products made from lovely locally-sourced ingredients. Natuurlik Pragtig believes that every woman should look and feel beautiful within their own skin and their goal is to boost women's confidence by providing them with the best. Natural, handmade beauty and skincare products that effortlessly fit into their daily routines.  

1. Natuurlik Pragtig Love Bath Bomb 


This bath bomb is made with lovely natural products such as Bicarbonate of Soda, Kaolin Clay, detoxifying Epsom Salt and moisturizing Cocoa Butter. My bathroom turns into a private spa, a therapeutic sanctuary when I allow this bath bomb to foam up and fizz away. The infused essential oils such as Jasmine, Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang allows my body and mind to relax and I feel totally rejuvenated thereafter. I wouldn’t mind for my little home to smell this way all the time, it’s very comforting. 


Apart from making my bathwater really pretty, it’s also very soothing and it left my skin feeling really beautiful and velvety soft.  

2. Natuurlik Pragtig Harmony Sugar Scrub 


I love the gourmand smell of this beautiful sugar scrub, it’s like a dessert in a tub! Made from Coconut and Olive Oil and infused with invigorating Coffee Grounds and Vanilla. You can use a generous amount on all the dryer parts of your body like your heels, knees and elbows - but be sure to massage this product into your skin in a gentle way. You don’t when to bruise yourself, remember it is a scrub.


I feel really energized whenever I use this Coffee infused scrub, so it is perfect for early morning showers or when you have plans for the night. I also received a sample of the Natuurlik Pragtig Harmony Body & Hand Lotion (not included in pictures) and OMG, that same delicious gourmand smell! Made with nourishing Shea and Cocoa Butter as well as Coconut Oil and Glycerin. It is very moisturizing and really great after a hot bath on your whole body or throughout the day just on your hands. 

3. Natuurlik Pragtig Adore Face Mask 


This little pot of magic with the appearance of delicious melted chocolate is another one of my favorites from the Natuurlik Pragtig natural, handmade beauty + skincare range. Made with Glycerin, Coconut Oil, Kaolin Clay and real Cocoa Powder. Along with yummy Honey and Vanilla Essential Oil. 



This mask is best applied on wet, clean skin where after I leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes. I absolutely adore the delightful chocolaty smell of it. I haven’t experienced any irritation and I’ve noticed that by the 4th application that my skin appears a whole lot clearer and brighter. It also does not dries out my skin, it just feels really clean and pampered. 

4. Natuurlik Pragtig Adore Lip Balm 


Another little magic pot! The Natuurlik Pragtig Adore Lip Balm, made with Coconut and Almond Oil as well as uplifting Peppermint Oil, Beeswax and real Dark Chocolate. It tints my lips in a natural caramel hue ever so slightly and I love how it moisturizes my lips along with that pleasant, refreshing zing of the Peppermint Oil.


I didn’t experience any irritation or burning sensation and I did not notice any flakes at all. And with the use of Beeswax, I know that this product will last me a very long time as there’s not even a sign of a dent. That’s what I call value for money. 

5. Natuurlik Pragtig Happy Body & Hand Lotion 


The Natuurlik Pragtig Body & Hand Lotion is very uplifting and reminds me of having a delicious brunch in a sunny garden, which to me is the epitome of being happy. The beautiful essentials oils used here are zesty Lemongrass, Geranium and Bergamot along with Shea and Cocoa Butter as well as Coconut Oil and Glycerin. Once again this formulation is super moisturizing with a sharp yet comforting smell that’s reminiscent of joyful, sunshiny days.

Revlon Photoready Candid Foundation


I'm very much in awe with the new Revlon Photoready Candid Foundation, meet bold and bare makeup that you and your skin can feel good about! This foundation provides a medium yet buildable coverage and the innovative formulation contains the antioxidant and anti-pollutant power of Vitamin E plus anti-blue light ingredients to help protect the skin from the environmental stressors we encounter every day. 

It’s also super easy to apply, really creamy - while providing such a beautiful, natural finish. It basically melts into my skin like a moisturizer and the coverage is very pretty and polished too. 


It is oil-free and allows my skin to breathe which makes it perfect for oily to combination skin types and our current sunnier, South African weather. It also stays put right throughout the day plus there's none of that nasty midday slick and shine. 


I also love the durable tube that fits easily into my handbag along with my other Revlon goodies. It comes in wide selection of shades and the price is pretty amazing too. A great foundation at an affordable price? Now that doesn’t happen often. I'm wearing the shade Medium Beige.


The Revlon Photoready Candid Foundation is available from Clicks for R129.99 in these lovely 12 skin-matching shades.
  1. Nude
  2. Sand Beige
  3. Natural Beige
  4. Medium Beige
  5. Butterscotch
  6. True Beige
  7. Natural Tan
  8. Macadamia
  9. Caramel
  10. Pecan
  11. Mocha
  12. Espresso

NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Review


I started using the NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity range back in June 2019, so I had enough time to really try and test these products properly and so today I’ll be giving you my thoughts on it. I recently celebrated my 35th birthday and I’m honestly super impressed with the overall condition of my skin. For a girl that lives and grew up in sunny Namaqualand known for its harsh climate, my skin is in a pretty good state. 

So what’s so different about the NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity range? Well, this cell-activating formula has Collagen, Hyaluron and Elastin booster in the blend to stimulate the skin’s own cells to activate the exact same structures. It also has been scientifically proven in cell culture experiments that after continued use of the NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity range the active ingredients facilitate the skin to create its own Collagen – showing more than a 20 % increase. 

The skin’s own Hyaluron level increased by almost 30 % and the skin’s own Elastin supply increased by a massive 64 %. Like previously mentioned I’ve been using this range for more than 3 months and the results are really remarkable


NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Day Cream SPF 15

 
In all honesty, I would’ve loved for the SPF level to be a little bit higher. My skin tans easily and while a bronze appearance is not a bad look the after effects thereof, especially at my age are damaging. However, I love that this day cream melts away into my skin in a non-greasy way. I love the rejuvenating effect thereof and the fact that it will help prevent future aging and spots from appearing. 

I have combination skin so I pick the day cream and the NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Anti Spot Treatment Serum to avoid a buildup of products before I apply my makeup. Priced at R269.99 


NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Range Anti-Spot Treatment Serum 


I had an existing dark spot above my left eyebrow and I’ve actually seen it going lighter and lighter over the last 3 months. The overall appearance of my skin is also a lot more even-toned. I’m really super impressed with this product and yes I know that its most probably the results of using all the products together, but still. The Anti-Spot Treatment Serum is my personal favourite.   Priced at R289.99 


NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Bi-phase Oil Elixir 


This product has a dual effect. The highly-concentrated water component means the skin is flooded with moisture and the triple-oil complex ensures that the skin is deeply moisturized. It has given my face a plump appearance that’s been softening the lines on my forehead, which is my problem area when it comes to wrinkles. 

I normally wear this product on its own when I’m at home during the day and taking a break from wearing makeup and also every nigh where after I apply the NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Night Cream. Priced at R289.99 


NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity Night Cream


This night cream provides deep nourishment and rejuvenates the skin during the night when it is most receptive. I wake up with a younger, radiant an overall lovelier appearance. I love that my skin feels firmer while my fine lines appear visibly reduced. This range was specially formulated for mature skin and thus far I'm really impressed. Also, the rose gold finishing touches on this range adds a lot of glam and sparkle to my dressing table. Priced at R269.99 


The NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Elasticity product range was sponsored by NIVEA but all thoughts and review are my own. These products are available from Clicks, Foschini and other similar beauty counters.
