Haul – Freeman, LUSH, ghd, Sorbet, The Body Shop & More!

Beauty Haul - Hair Care, Skin Care & Body Care

I cleared out my hair care & body care collection just so I could add more to it….where’s the logic in that?  Clearly all common sense goes out the window once I go nosying around Dis-Chem.  The last 2 months have been very good for beauty buys – Retail Box had an epic sale back in January and Dis-Chem stores always have unbeatable prices.  I usually tweet & Facebook post about sales & discounts on my social media accounts, so be sure to follow me here and here.

Today I’m showing you what made it into my shopping basket (both in-store and online).  Truth be told, I’ve gone a little mad on the face mask front, plus I found a makeup brush shampoo that might just replace my beloved Beautyblender Solid Cleanser.  I also stocked up on some bath & body care goodies for the colder Autumn / Winter months ahead.

As with most of my hauls, this one started off with a single innocent purchase (a lonely little Freeman face mask) that spiralled into a fully fledged raid of Dis-Chem.  This confirms I probably shouldn’t be allowed to step foot in any Dis-Chem store without adult supervision.

In my latest video I give you all the dirty deets on what I’ve been purchasing these last few months (pricing of each item is indicated on the screen whilst chatting about the product), PLUS I give a short review on a couple of the products as I have started testing a few of them (2 products received a thumbs down from me).

I share some news regarding my hair, and you can look forward to some rather embarrassing descriptions i.e. “…my hair smells like a wet dog…”  Click on the image below to watch my video on YouTube:

    Awesome post… Have my eye on that ghd hairdryer…

    oooh loved the Retailbox Sale i got Joico Shampoo and Conditioner for like almost half the price :-)

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:06

      Thanks, Missy! :) I have really been enjoying the ghd hairdryer, it really does cut down on drying time.

      The Retail Box sale was incredible, can’t wait for the next one! 😉

  2. Emy Clarke 17 March 2015 / 13:00

    I have an insane amount of beauty products and watching these blogs makes me want more. My solution was to give all the products I didn’t love to my sister to make space for new ones to try.

    Let’s just say that I totally get where you are coming from…..

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:07

      Haha!!! I do the same, I donate most of my unwanted beauty goodies to charity, only to stock up on more products later down the line… It’s a vicious circle! 😉

  3. Isabelle Perkins 17 March 2015 / 13:37

    Gorge pics!

  4. Zee Mohlapi 17 March 2015 / 13:43

    Luv the mini reviews in the haul vid, Luzanne – much more helpful. 😉

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:08

      Thank you, Zee – I’ll be sure to include mini reviews in my next haul videos too. 😀

  5. Geraldine 17 March 2015 / 14:07

    I know what you mean, Luz – I also clear out my bathroom shelves every few months and then just buy more… It’s like the open spaces on the shelves bother me and I have to fill them up with new products. 😀

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:08

      Bwahahaha!!! So true! 😉

  6. Holly Morello 17 March 2015 / 14:57

    Your make up looks so pretty in the video.

    I love the Loccitane shower oil, its smells delicious and really helps for dry skin. :)

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:09

      Thanks so much, Holly. I’ve only used the shower oil twice so far and I must admit, it’s fantastic! :)

  7. Qondiswa N 17 March 2015 / 15:21

    Those freeman face masks look amaaaaaazing, going to Dischem after work to see which ones I can find. 😉

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:09

      I hope you found a few that are suitable for your skin type, Qondiswa. :)

  8. Luna Lacey 17 March 2015 / 15:42

    I’m pretending I haven’t read this post or watched the video, I just spent a ridiculous amount at Dischem over the weekend, if I go back I’m pretty sure they’re going to send me to beauty-holics rehab… and you’re not allowed to wear makeup there!!!!

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:10

      LOL! Beauty-holics rehab sounds like a terrible, terrible place….no makeup allowed!? Pssshhhh…pure torture! 😉

  9. Lalannie 17 March 2015 / 15:54

    Those freeman masks look so good – defs going to try! So far, I have been super impressed with the products that I have purchased after seeing your reviews.
    Thank you for being honest about the products.

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:11

      You’re welcome, Lalannie – and thank you for taking the time to read my blog posts & comment on the blog. :)

  10. Cara 17 March 2015 / 17:20

    Love ur vids, they’re so upbeat & cheerful. You are a pleasure to watch, Luzanne. 😀

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:11

      Thank you for your kind words, Cara! You just made my day! :)

  11. Wilma 17 March 2015 / 17:21

    Really enjoyed the mini reviews, great job! Now I know not to get the makeup remover wipes. 😉

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:12

      Thanks so much, Wilma. :)

  12. Jenna 17 March 2015 / 19:22

    You look gorge in the video, Lu! I’m getting the dry conditioner and face masks for sure, thank you for always introducing us to new and interesting things.

    Jenna XO

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:12

      Thank you, Jenna – the dry conditioner has been a pleasant surprise for me, will definitely be doing a review on it. xo

  13. Andrea 18 March 2015 / 08:33

    STOP IT! My money has wings because of you LOLOLOL!

    • Luzanne 18 March 2015 / 09:13

      Bahahahahaaaaa!!! Best comment EVER!!! 😀

  14. Nicole Bekkers 18 March 2015 / 17:54

    Just returned from Dischem. Totally raided the Freemans section. I felt very lost in the shop (Im more of Clicks shopper out of comfort-its nice knowing where everything in the store is). The sales people at Dischem looked at me like I was crazy while I profusely hunted for these face masks! Cant wait to try them! I got the honey dew, pomegranate and apricot. Yay!

    • Nicole Bekkers 18 March 2015 / 17:57

      Shoot! I forgot the face wipes! (Urgently makes U-turn). This blog is bad for my pocket!

    • Luzanne 23 March 2015 / 12:44

      I used to be more of a Clicks kinda gal but ever since Dis-Chem started stocking unique brands such as Morgan Taylor, L.A. Girl & Freeman, I’m visiting their stores A LOT MORE OFTEN! 😉 I usually just walk through each aisle in Dis-Chem, scouting for new & exciting products…I never just walk into the store and head straight for a certain shelf. I love just walking around, checking everything out – haha!

      You’re going to love the masks, I just know it! 😀

    Hi Luzanne

    Garnier has the best face-cleansing wipes I have ever tried. D’Avines hairproducts that you buy at Carlton hair are by far the most yummiest smelling and the scent lingers all day long. I had such a chuckle when you said your hair smells like a wet dog :-)). I was a bit disappointed with the no 10 Secret Box of Retailbox.co.za. The previous ones were so amazing, but this one is really disappointing. I will not mention what is in it, as not to spoil the secret for anyone. Do you have any idea when Lush Jhb are going to open, as it is quite pricey for our Gauteng girls to order their stuff online.
    Thanks again for the BEST BLOG EVER!!!

    • Luzanne 23 March 2015 / 12:41

      I am loving their new facial wipes with the Salicylic Acid – if you have problematic skin, definitely check them out! :)

      I have actually never tried any Davines hair care products, will definitely check them out next time I walk past a Carlton Hair salon. I didn’t buy the Secret Box 10 this time around, I have so many hair care products that I need to work my way through before I’m allowed to purchase any more products or subs boxes.

      I have no idea…I heard LUSH was going to open a store in Jhb before the middle of 2015 but we’re almost already in April and I haven’t heard any new news. I am holding thumbs they will be opening a store here soon because there is just something very special about walking around, sniffing and testing their products in-store… Will keep you updated! 😀
