Lux Even Tone White Lily & Cocoa Butter

First Impression

My friends at Rubybox sent me this beautiful soap to review, the packaging oozed out natural to me. I was captivated and taken out doors with the look. The box itself had a sweet scent meandering out of it.

Indulgence of the Soap Bar

I didn’t wait for anything I immediately placed it in the bathroom and started using it. It has the luxurious foaming lather and that sweet scent serenading the entire bathroom. Bathtime feels a lot like a pamper session lately for me and I love it.


My skin feels spoilt with deep moisture and is left feeling soft. My skin tone has not changed though, I’m not sure if that is still alright but I am happy with the product.

Dyme App

💅Beauty Delivered to Your Doorstep💅

💙 As a single mom to Twin Boys, you can just try to imagine how hectic my life is. I usually forget to even look after myself because let’s face it, where is that time going to come from? Thanks to the Dyme app, this mom will be reintroduced to me time.

What is the Dyme App

💙 The Dyme app connects customers to different types of mobile beauty professionals online. It is available for users in Capetown, Durban and Johannesburg. The convenience for both the service provider and the customer is out of this world. Picture this, you have an event after work but you need to get home first and get the kids settled, while you’re at it your nail technician is on the way so when she arrives she starts on your nails as you assist the kids with homework and when she’s done you get ready and leave!

Booking a treatment

💙 I had the pleasure of trying the app and booked an appointment with Tshepi from Manala on Wheelzz. I was impressed by her immediate response as she verified my treatment and checked for any other preferences through the chat option in the app. I was informed she was on her way and she was very punctual and professional, she briefed me on what we would be doing and the products she was going to use. A short questionnaire was conducted to ascertain if I have any allergies or conditions to ensure a non hazardous treatment.

The Artist

💙 I got to know Tshepi a bit better as we discussed how she finds the Dyme app from a service provider point of view. She loves that she is her own boss and can work flexible hours. The app has connected her to some long lasting work relationships which is great for her business Manala On Wheelzz.

The After

💙After my gorgeous nails were done, I was given tips on how to look after them and the app also concluded and gave me an option to rate the service.

This was my experience with the app:

☑️ Easy sign up and booking on the app.

☑️ Various treatments and professionals to choose from. I also got to choose the date and time.

☑️Safe and easy payment methods Payu or Cash option.

☑️ Adequate information and communication regarding my booking.

Derma Hydrate Gentle Cleansing Bar

Rubybox sent me the Derma Hydrate Gentle Cleansing Bar sample to test and review. The packaging is quite cute and I personally have a weakness for any shade of blue. It also has a clear wrapper inside the box.

Its very gentle to the touch and fragrance free. You can feel how gentle the bar is and it is so full of moisture.

The benefits of the bar include:

  • Dermatologist Tested
  • No artificial colourants
  • Not tested on animals
  • Ideal pH 5.5
  • 100% Soap Free
  • Colour Free
  • Vitamin E Enriched

Personally I love a rich a lather that looks like bubblemania and this bar doesn’t really have a rich lather. Other than that it is a good soap.

The full size bar of 75g is available at Clicks for R59.00.

Thursday Plantation Acne Range

Talking about things skin, I have always suffered from acne and nothing seemed to work for me. I obviously cannot say I tried everything but everything that I tried just would not work. Recently Rubybox sent me Thursday Plantation Acne Range to test and review (drop me your email addresses below if you would also like to join Rubybox and receive free products to test & review) and boy was my skin in for a surprise? Only natural ingredients are used in this range.


First things first, I opened the products to smell them as I always do when I get a new product and the Tea Tree which is the active ingredient in these products slapped me in the face. I was a bit concerned considering my skin is sensitive and it literally blows up  at anything it considers harsh. Regardless of that, as one who is desperate for improved skin I went ahead and put it to the test.

I religiously started washing my face every morning and evening with the Tea Tree Face Wash Foam. It is pumped out in a foam texture making it so much easier to lather. I followup with the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Toner using a cotton pad and this is where the verdict comes out on whether you are actually cleaning your skin when you wash it or not lol. Moisturizing is one thing I never used to do because I have oily skin and I thought a moisturizer just makes it worse. As a result i developed fine lines from depriving my skin of moisture. I was very hesitant about using the Tea Tree Face Cream because I thought I am just adding oil to my oily skin. I still put my big girl panties on and went in for the kill. I get rather naughty at times and sleep in my make up,  It will be evident because I get a pimple breakout just the next day. I do not need to worry about that because the Tea Tree Blemish Gel comes to my rescue. I apply directly to the problem area and it zaps the issues away.

As far as I know the entire range is available in South Africa at Clicks and Dischem Stores nationwide plus on Wellness Warehouse. Hope this is stumbled upon by someone who needs it. If you know someone with skin like mine, share with them this info and you could help change their skin. Below are my before and after pictures, you can judge for yourself. The natural ingredients worked magic for my skin in just 3 weeks, my skin is smoother and the dark marks are reduced incredibly. I have this natural glow and the fine lines are disappearing by the day.  Take good care of your skin guys💙.
