Skincare: Hey Gorgeous

Skin Care

Okay, okay. I literally had two blog posts on two other skincare brands lined up before this post, but I was like “I cannot wait to write about this any longer!!”

If you’ve read my previous posts, you would have seen that I’ve mentioned that my skin is a bit problematic.

Gone are the days of the clear skin of my teenage years with literally one pimple during menstruation and the reassurance of knowing that it will disappear easily within a day or two.

Now, in my late 20’s, my “adult” skin is suffering abit. You know, because of LIFE. Stress, unhealthy eating habits, etc.

A few months back, I came across this brand on Instagram and I was like “ooh look at the cute packaging! This looks like something that I need to try!”. (Honestly, I was a tad bit delayed).

I never got around to it then, but I had enough of the way that my skin was and I have literally been trying anything to help my face.

Yes, that is a Hello Kitty inside a weird, but cute cupcake.

Hey Gorgeous Skincare is a proudly South African brand whose cute and aesthetically pleasing products are filled with natural and cruelty free skincare goodness. (Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!)

I went into Foschini at Blue Route and even though their Hey Gorgeous stand is quite limited, all of the products looked tempting to buy!

This is what I purchased (from left from the photo above):

  • Hey Gorgeous Skincare: Banish & Repair Moisturiser – R250.00
  • Hey Gorgeous Skincare: Activated Charcoal Facial Scrub – R180.00
  • Hey Gorgeous Skincare: Activated Charcoal Cleanser – R210.00

Please note that these were the prices at the time of purchasing.

(Side note: Foschini had a 3 for 2 special on for their Hey Gorgeous products so my total was R180 less!)

1. HGS: Activated Charcoal Cleanser

Step 1 of my skincare regimen. Great packaging and smells great too. This cleanser helps to open up the pores and detoxify them of any gunk and nasty stuff.

The cleanser is greyish in colour and the texture is almost like washing your face with lotion.

Your face will literally feel clean. (Well, my face feels clean, so yours will too lol).

2. HGS: Activated Charcoal Facial Scrub

Step 2 of my skincare regimen. This facial scrub‘s ingredients has many advantages and (just to name a few): drawing out of impurities, preventing dryness, anti-inflammatory and tones and firms the skin. (Source: Hey Gorgeous Skincare).

There is quite a lot of scrub (200g!) so it will last you quite awhile, depending on how much product that you use.

3. HGS: Banish & Repair Moisturiser

The scent. The texture. The hydration of my skin due to this moisturiser.

The current third and final step of my skincare regimen. (Side note: I need to get the serum and toner to complete this regimen!… Soon).

The dryness on my cheeks are literally non existent after using this product. My face literally glows!

There you have it. After just over a week of using these three products, my skin is softer, starting to clear up of blemishes/ impurities, a healthy looking glow is present daily and I am literally excited to use these products in the morning and evening.

I will be using Hey Gorgeous products for a long time!
