Last week Friday I popped into Nelson Mandela Square here in Joburg for a quick breakfast with African Extracts. The food was to die for. I had a sandwich with hummus, avo and rocket leaves – and I scoffed it down unashamedly… even though I was full at the halfway mark. (That is what Tasha’s will do to you.)

Anyway, on the table there was a gift bag for each of us with the African Extracts Rooibos Facial Oil and hand cream. I think I was the first to dive right in and rip open the boxes.

I’m on a super high after trying another local brand – so I have high hopes for this dry facial oil from African Extracts. I tried it for the first time last night – and left out my night cream. This morning I still have no wrinkles.

I’m going to try it for a few weeks and see what happens.

Bonus, if this facial oil works it is only R180… and you can check out all their products on
