Family Gems would like to say thank you to the wonderful Botswana blogger Anita Baliki for providing us with this post. In her blog she writes about some of her experiences and challenges as a young mom, wife, student and entrepreneur. She’s beautifully cataloging her life on her Instagram and her blog 1 Young Mama.
Okay so growing up I have never been too crazy about skin care. To be honest, my skin has never needed much care or maintenance. The sunlight green bar and Vaseline is all I ever needed to maintain my skin. But when I fell pregnant, I experienced one of the many things that are not particularly highlighted about the experience. My skin started to break out at around my second trimester and I was completely in the dark about how to treat it. I used natural products throughout that time and they seemed to keep the breakouts at bay until after I delivered that is. Post delivery all hell broke loose and it felt like every other week I would welcome a new pimple.
I have dry combination skin but after delivery, it felt more like dehydrated combination skin. Since then, I have been using natural products to maintain my skin and have been successful thus far. The only problem with my current skin care routine is that if I stop using those products for a day or two, my skin crashes.
So when I got the opportunity to attend the Optiphi Skin Health Event hosted by Masarati Aesthetics Skin Clinic I eager to attend. I wanted to learn more about how to care for my skin.
The event was hosted by is located by the Village Mall. It’s run by the sweetest lady; Shamima. There were 2 sessions available and I attended the morning one. The first half of the session was about the amazing range of Optiphi products that are available at the clinic. As well as those that are used for some of their treatments.
Part of Optiphi’s aim and vision is to create a range, which meets the needs of a wide range of consumers. This means that they cater to every skin type and skin condition! Their products are pH-balanced. Therefore not only restores the skin to a healthy condition but maintains it. The products are safe for use during pregnancy, with exception to the Retinol containing products.
I have got to say this; when trying out products, you commonly have to give the product a large trial period to see visible results. However, this was the first time I tried a product and got instant visible results. Their products are highly concentrated but equally effective so it was like watching a magic show on your skin.
Okay so there were 3 products in the goodies bags and the first one was;
Pure Cleansing Wash
Lip Plumping Perfecter
As I mentioned before, I have dry combination skin so I struggle with whiteheads on my nose and a dull appearance on my skin. After using the sample products on my face for a week, there was a noticeable change in the size of my pores on my nose. Also the overall appearance and glow of my skin. My review of the products is that it is definitely worth the coin!
-Dry dull looking skin
-Uneven tone and hyperpigmentation
-Large pores on my nose
-more vibrant skin
-more even toned
The Second Half Of The Session Was A Master Glam Class By Naasirah
She is the super cheery and talented makeup artist from My Glam Studio. She conducted a live glam makeup demonstration of how to get snatched, what products to use, techniques and brushes. The class was very informative and interactive. This is exactly what you need when you are still learning how to apply your makeup.
The event was a pleasure to attend and would be great for someone who is obsessed with beauty like I’m starting to be.
