Nuban Beauty is a Nigerian makeup brand. They launched last year with an AMAZING eyeshadow palette, that literally no one could get enough of, and then they discontinued it :(. They had an event earlier this week for the launch of their recently released products and I was the host. As the host, I got to ask them a few questions, one of which being if they were ever going to bring back their first palette which was called ‘Intense’, and they categorically said “No”, but it’s been given a facelift with their new ‘Intensified’ palette.



Along with the new ‘Intensified’ palette, they released a number of other products including 4 mini liquid lipstick sets (in Matte, Metallic & Gloss), strip lashes, a brush set, beauty sponges, a brush set (not pictured), a mixing pan and spatula (not pictured) and another eyeshadow palette called ‘Obssession’.

If there is one skincare product that I’m definitely loving right now, it will be this Exfoliating Polish by ZO Skin Health. I mean from the picture above it’s pretty obvious, as I am currently on my second tub. Come to think of it, I have actually talked about this product on the blog in this post here, and my feelings  haven’t changed one bit since then.

It’s only just now looking at these images that I noticed the tub says ‘Anti-ageing formula’, well that’s an added extra I’m pleased to discover :).

I can literally see and feel the difference on my skin as soon as I rinse it off. It definitely gets rid of all the junk and dead skin and leaves it feeling so soft. I’ll recommend you use it a minimum twice a week and  strongly suggest you rinse this off with bearable hot water.

Hi Guys, apologies for the silence on the blog the past month, I have been so distracted by a lot of projects, ideas, business plans that my creative juices literally stopped flowing. But in the next few posts I plan on bringing you all up to speed on everything: from my skin going crazy, to my nails just deciding they’d had enough and also that I am now #TeamNatural. There’s a lot to share and I will start off with this post talking about new products that I have added to my skincare routine.


When I started blogging, I literally would try out any and every skincare product, and my skin could take it…. or so I thought. Fast forward to mid-last year when I mistakenly used an expired makeup product on my face and it’s just been downhill from there. Then I had these extremely painful stress pimples towards the end of the year as well, so my skin has pretty much been in recovery mode since the start of 2017. Which is why I haven’t really shared as many makeup looks as I used to, or even talked much about skincare because I have just been trying to figure it all out. I still am to be honest, and I am also very very careful what skincare products I now use. But clearly I am not careful enough, because I had a mini breakout just a week ago after trying out a serum someone raved about…lol. See why I don’t like talking about skincare and products, even I can’t seem to get it right.


OBVIOUSLY, I am a now lot more cautious when it comes to skincare products, I may even go as far as saying I am not willing to try anything new at this point. These products by Clarins are for the body, so I was willing to try them out. I recently attended a ‘Bare Beauty with Clarins’ event put together by the Beauty Bar and we were taken through a few products in the Clarins range.



Regular readers will know that I am a huge EXFOLIATION advocate. You MUST exfoliate your skin at least twice a week, to get rid of the dead skin and also remember to wear SPF daily (how I exfoliate). I typically use loose scrubs because I think they are more effective and I don’t have to deal with the ‘film’ left behind when you use cream/gel based scrubs. However, I am just not a huge fan of the mess that comes with using loose scrubs. If I currently had the bathroom/shower of my dreams, they wont be a problem, but right now, with my current situation (bathroom) they  just aren’t convenient. This scrub by Clarins is the perfect balance, I apply to wet skin work it in all over and then I go over it with soapy exfoliating mitts. I am definitely loving this scrub and with my method, there’s not a ‘film’ in sight.



This is currently my all-over-body moisturiser, it’s light and melts nicely into the skin. I especially love the fact that it’s got SPF20 in it, I’d been using a body lotion with SPF50 just on the parts of my body that get the most exposure to the sun i.e. my arms, my shoulders, my décolletage and my neck and then some regular body-butter (from Bath & Body Works) over the rest of my body. But now I use this Brightening Body Veil all over my body and then still layer my SPF50 lotion over my arms, neck and decolletage. I will share more about the SPF50 lotion and my sun-blocking combination in another post.



All products are available at The Beauty Bar, Palms Mall Lekki, Lagos




Honestly with the way my skin has been going, I’ve only just managed to get it under control and my current skincare routine seems to be working just nicely so… I don’t particularly feel like trying out any new products at the moment.
