Sorme Cosmetics And Makeup by Erin Smylie

I Have had the most Amazing weekend in JHB on my trip to the SA Beauty Blog Awards. I Got to meet so many fantastic people and it was all very memorable! Here is a look at Sorme Cosmetics and Makeup by Erin Smylie

On Thursday I Received the nicest phone call from Sorme Cosmetics saying that they are arranging for Erin Smylie to Come and do my makeup for me on Saturday for the Event and that they would like to Show me the whole Sorme and Refinee Range, How amazing is that, and of course I didn’t say no!!! They even offered for me to add a friend in to have her makeup done as well and my beautiful friend Rayne from Make It Rayne was at the same hotel and was perfect for her to join in the fun.

I got to meet Simon from the Sorme team first, he was so welcoming and brought me a little gift while we were waiting for Erin and Michelle to arrive. The whole team is so friendly! Erin arrived and And set up all the lovely Sorme cosmetics for us to see. With Rayne, Cara and Lisa there as well the room was packed with excited girls drinking champagne and looking forward to the blog awards. I could not have asked for a better way to prep for the awards.

Michelle from the Sorme team Brought with the Refinee skin care range for me to use on my face and prep my skin for Erin to do my makeup. Every Item from the Refinee range that i tried out was great! I used the Exfoliating Fruit Cleanser first to wash my face, it is amazing, its got such fine granules that exfoliate gently and cleaned my face well. I then used the floral toner that was super pleasant, it wasn’t harsh at all on my skin and left me feeling very refreshed. I followed this up with the Intensive C serum, I love the feeling of this serum, its so smooth and leaves skin glowing, brighter and soft. After that i added a touch of the Firming Mineral Moisture Cream for a bit more Moisture. The team left me with a whole bunch of samples to use for the rest of the weekend, because you only have to use a tiny amount of the product, the samples are lasting me a good few days!
