Rain! I mean the name itself sounds so refreshing, so you can only imagine what this body polish smells and leaves you feeling like. I got this polish a while ago during a mini #ECMeetup that a couple of Eastern Cape bloggers and I attended mid last year.

Below are a list of beauty trends that should definitely stay with other bad things that happened in 2016.   Furry Nails I mean just why guys? Why? Could there be anything more unhygienic?

Johnson’s Vita-Rich Body Care Range | South African Beauty Blogger.
