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.

    1. Hi ifeoma. I read all the beautiful things you wrote about Venus and I believe you because i used it back when i was in Nigeria and my skin glowed. But right now I am in Ghana. I really need your help. If you would agree to buy the range for me then i can send the money to you. Please help me. After three kids my skin needs all the help it can get. Kindly contact me and I will call you back. Ngtemple324@gmail.com

    2. Hello Ngozi Obi, as much as we all love the product, it is now obvious that PZ Cussons has discontinued production of it. I, along with many others on this blog have searched high and low but it is unavailable. I will recommend you find a good product that suits your skin, something you can always get in a retail store in Ghana to ensure continuity.
      Warmest Regards.

  10. Hi, I just bought all 3produucts from the shoprite in Abuja. Hopefully it works well for my skin. Total cost was less than N2000.

    Note: if buying from Shoprite (and other stores), pls check the expiration date as I came across some expired body lotions.
