Beauty & Lifestyle Haul – Dermalogica, Cotton On, Jo Malone, Clarins & More!

Beauty & Lifestyle Haul

My second YouTube video is up on my channel, and I must say, I really enjoyed filming this one!  I feel like I was a bit more relaxed in front of the camera, which is good.  Neal also mentioned I was more confident in this video – I make him watch my videos before I load them onto YouTube (poor guy).

I’m really trying to keep my videos under 10 minutes and succeeded again this time around – hurraaah for shorter videos!  I’m thinking the more I do these videos, the better I will get at 1. not waffling on during the video and 2. editing non-essential things out of the vids.  But for now, I’m happy with them!

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to watch my very first YouTube video last week.  I’m actually quite surprised by how many of you have watched it!  It really means so much to me when you guys take a couple of minutes out of your day to check up on my blog (and now videos), leave a comment, or interact with me on social media.

My LUSH South Africa giveaway is ending next week Thursday, so make sure you enter for it here.

So, in this video I show you guys what other items I bought whilst on holiday in Cape Town (there are some flipping cute socks from Cotton On, amongst other things).  You can click on the image below and it will take you directly to my video on YouTube where you can subscribe to my channel, comment on the video or ‘like’ my video.

I hope you guys enjoyed the video & I apologise in advance to your ears for the funny noise I make towards the end of the video.  I am really enjoying filming these videos for you, it challenges me in so many different ways (which is a good thing!).  My next video will be a Rubybox Unboxing video but it won’t just be your average unboxing video. *wink* *wink*

    Dying to read a review on that primer. I’ve had my eye on it for ages, but I wasn’t sure if it would truly be value for money.

    And I am SO lusting over a Jo Malone perfume. One day! ONE DAY it will happen!

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:48

      I’m pretty sure it’s going to be in a monthly favourites at some stage because it really IS as good as everyone says (in my honest opinion). I’m going to use it for a while longer but if you’d like me to tell you more about how I’m experiencing it, you can pop me a mail and I’ll be happy to reply for more info. :)

      I didn’t mention it in the video, but I have been lusting after a Jo Malone fragrance since 2008, back when I lived in Scotland. A colleague of mine gifted me one of her candles and I was immediately hooked! Just never had the money (or courage) to fork out R 1k+ for a fragrance. Just shows, it took me 6+ years to get to this point. :)

    Wow you got some really nice products! Jo Malone is one of my favourite fragrance houses!

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:44

      Their fragrances are stunning!! Really want to get their new one now called ‘Silk Blossom’… *swoon*

  3. Zee Mohlapi 8 August 2014 / 21:51

    I dont really watch a lot of youtube videos, but I am hooked on yours. I have looked at some of the other SA blogger videos and yours is by far the best! Well done, Lu


    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:43

      Aaaaah, you just made my MONTH!!! Thank you so much for saying that, Zee! xxx

    The Dermalogica concept stores sound so interesting, is there one in Joburg? I’d love to go visit one. Well done on another great video

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:43

      There is one in Rosebank Mall, I was at that store 2 weeks ago and it’s lovely as well! Try to pop in there when you get a chance. :)

      The blog post on the Dermalogica Concept Stores will be up the week after this coming week. x

    I’m so happy you are doing YouTube now…I was so nervous doing my first one, but I’m looking forward to filming some more.
    I also want to try my best to keep them right at or under 10 minutes…I know not a lot of people like long videos, I do, but they aren’t for everyone.

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:41

      You were SO great with your first video, Lily!! I could honestly listen to you talk for hours (I wish my voice was that soothing). You looked VERY calm and confident in your video. :)

      We need to do that collab soon, now that we’re both on the ‘Tube! xxx

      P.S. I can stomach long videos every now and again, if it’s something I’m REALLY into…but most of the time I like vids that are under 10 minutes. 😉

    Looking forward to your next video! Ive often wondered about the bourjois foundation, I think I’ll pick it up next time I’m at clicks. Thanks for the effort you put into your videos, Luzane. x

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:39

      Aaaah, it’s a pleasure, Yolandi! I hope you enjoy the next one as well! :)

  7. Janneke 9 August 2014 / 16:06

    looking forward! i love watching unboxing videos

  8. Ursula 9 August 2014 / 19:42

    Love the Clarins Liquid Bronze, it’s one of my favorite self-tanning products. Well done on a great video again, Luzanne. -Ursula x

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:38

      I can’t wait to start using it! I’m going to self-tan my body today and will also start using the Clarins facial self-tanner tonight. *excited!!*

  9. Taz 9 August 2014 / 19:59

    Jeez, you are so bad for my bank account heheheeeee!

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:37

      Haha!! #sorrynotsorry 😉

  10. Inge 10 August 2014 / 11:13

    I have those Accessorize earrings but in other colours and I love them. You bought some really nice things and I loved the video. xox

    • Luzanne 10 August 2014 / 11:36

      They are lovely, aren’t they? I have them in silver too (I think also 5 pairs) and I wear them all the time. :) Thank you, Inge. :)

  11. Michelle 23 August 2014 / 10:30

    I so love your videos. I could watch you every day.

    • Luzanne 25 August 2014 / 17:32

      Bwahahahah!! You just totally made my day with this comment, Michelle! Thank you so much. xxx The worst thing about making YouTube videos is having to sit through 30 minutes’ worth of footage, listening & watching myself…and then relistening and rewatching…and then doing it for a third or fourth time to make sure the video is 100%. It’s like watching paint dry while someone is torturing you with nail pliers. 😉 😀
