Last December, I found online an interview of ELLE South-Africa‘s chief editor,
(very interesting website, read the excellent ELLE Deco South Africa too!) : Jackie Burger showed her beauty “routine”, including a product of Africology. Never heard about this South Africa cosmetics luxury brand, ethic and environment-friendly.
Renchia Droganis, holistic therapist and Africology founder, created biodegradable natural products with South African essential oils and plants. After a local success story, Africology is now famous in England. I’m more and more puzzled and I want to test those products. I like discovering luxury cosmetics brands from all over the world (like Panpuri in Thailand).
For one month and half, I’ve tested the slimming products of Africology. Fortunately, my skin didn’t react to the essential oils! I do like the 4 products of the picture above! The textures are nourishing, not greasy with a matte finish : great in damp climatic zones. Cellulite Detox (2) is one of my two favourite products: you need to massage this oil into the skin. Nice texture (marula oils rooibos and hypoxis) and the parfum is really strong.
Same for the scent of the 3 other products : strong citronella scent (I’m addictive). I melt this oil with Slimming Detox Cream, a super moisterising that nourishes my very dry skin. I also melt the Slimming Detox Cream with the Conditionning Body Oil (4). This oil with a matte finish makes my skin extremely soft and my feet like baby ones!!! Twice a week, I use the Body Scrub : the colour and texture of the scrub look like grains of sand that gently wipe the skin.
Did I loose any centimenters using this regiment? No, I didn’t do any diet during my testing, so honestly I couldn’t tell if they have a real slimming effect or not. But my skin looks better, suppler, softer and toner. Definitely they tone (thanks to the daily massage movements to apply them) and highly moisturize skin. I really enjoy smelling, touching and applying them. And now, I look forward to discover the 64 other products of Afrocology! Maybe in South Africa…
