Imagine how ecstatic I was to finally find products specifically formulated for dark skin, that do actually work!! If you have been struggling to find the right products for your skin, this post is definitely for you. The moment I saw the name Afriderm, I knew I had to try their products out 🙂
Afriderm is an exclusive dark skin care range, designed to reveal and heighten the perfect beauty of dark skin. Their products are locally produced in Capetown South Africa. The fact that their products are at a reasonable price, made the brand more appealing to me. I mean just because products are exorbitantly high, does not necessarily mean they are good right? I’m going to review two of the products I received from them below.
EXFOLIATING BODY SCRUB: R88 (300ml)
I have been experiencing extremely dry and ashy skin since I came back from Europe, I have tried almost every product on the shelves until I heard about this body exfoliator. I use it twice a week, concentrating more on the dry and cellulite prone areas. It has ingredients like avocado oil, sesame oil, and sweet almond oil just to name a few, leaving your skin feeling soft, hydrated, smooth and nourished.
NB: This product is PARABEN FREE!! For some of you who don’t know what this means, here is a quick explanation 🙂 Parabens are preservatives in cosmetics and personal care products, that make products last longer and they can be harmful to the skin.
DAY CREAM|SPF 20: R159 (60ml)
This cream is good for moisture and hydration. Herbal oils, argan oil, evening primrose oil and Shea butter are some of the key ingredients. If you have ashy-looking skin, dark spots and blemishes this is the cream to use. It also has built in SPF 20 sun protection with vitamin E and anti wrinkle properties. This cream is suitable for all dark skin tones.
You can find this products and the rest of their range on www.afriderm.co.za or at selected Edgar’s stores.
I would love to hear about the products you use for dark skin or if you use Afriderm skincare range.
