The Venus Skin Care Range

The Venus PerfectTone SkinCare range




When I say I have tried all sorts of products on my skin, trust me, I know what I'm talking about.


My mom still wonders how I managed to survive all the many products. Truth is, I get bored easily coupled with the fact that I always expect these products to work like a miracle. So you can see, it may not be that the many products I have thrown off my table were not good or worth it, it may just be that  I got bored, literally.


This one has managed to stand the test of time. 8 months and still counting. That on itself is unbelievable to those who know me well. With much ado, now introducing my Skin Care range:  Venus PerfectTone.



Venus Daily Face Scrub



The Scrub: It is a 3 in 1.
- opens pores,
- lifts up dirt
- exfoliates the skin

I am the queen of exfoliation literally, so scrubs are my specialty.

Pro: It contains pumice which aids in exfoliation. It is mild enough to use everyday if you want.
Con: it is creamy. I really do not like creamy scrubs because of the oily nature of my face.











Gentle Toning Body Lotion


This Body Lotion is one word; divine!
First, it meets my expectation of being fluid and milky. My perfect lotion consistency.

Second, it has some sort of Sun Block in it, which works for short level of sun exposure.
And then, it has tiny gold glitters in it. That alone takes the cake for me. Your skin will literally glimmer; in or outdoor.

If PZ Cussons ever reduce or increase the quantity of gold glitters in this lotion, I am so not buying it anymore. Lmao!

It also had mild skin brightening properties. Thanks to it the soy oil in it.
I'm on my 6th bottle, I think.






Venus Gentle Toning Face Cream

The Face Cream is just gorgeous. This was my first encounter with this range.

I saved the best for last.

With Sun Block and mild brightening properties, this lightly scented cream worked wonders for my oily skin.

It's more than just a moisturizer! Do try it out.

Six o' clock In The Morning



This was the time my mom jolted me up from bed, all because she wanted to look good for the wedding she would attend.



To my surprise, she was all bathed and dressed up.
"Ah, ah, even the bride can not be dressed by this time! Na you wan marry?" I asked her.

"That one is not your own headache. Abeg get up and come and make me up jooor." She quickly replied, laughing.

I got up sluggishly. May I add, I have issues waking up from sleep. And then, I grabbed my beauty box. And the rest was history...

Do enjoy these photos!
xoxo

I would update soon with the products used.

Mrs. Ifeoma Nwokeji

 


She called me personally saying that she had no other person in mind except me for her wedding makeover.









Ifeoma Nwokeji nee Nwafor was my Secondary School mate and we are still friends up till this very moment. [She used to bully a lot in school back then. I know she would kill me for this. hehe]

But in all, she is a warm-hearted woman. I have gotten a handful of referrals from her personally and also by photos of the work I did on her.

Without much ado, here she is.




















I must add, the photography is by Derek [08060047236]. A handsome young man that knows his job well and delivers. I was impressed by the output of his works.











Calista's Engagement Look

I created this look for an engagement wedding while training my student. 

I thought it'd be nice to share it with you guys. Enjoy.

As usual, no photo-shopping. No editing.
