Progast Drops

Colic occurs in approximately 20% of all babies and can cause a great deal of anxiety, concern and exhaustion. Apart from feeding your baby the right quantity of food, changing their nappies regularly and providing physical comfort, you can try Progast Drops. It’s a natural herbal remedy that’s been formulated to soothe digestive discomfort. Always dilute in water. Tested free of heavy metals and other toxins. Consult your healthcare practitioner for children under three.

Available from chemists for around R195.


Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

We’re not sure how such a great mascara can cost less than R70, but we’re not complaining. For eye-raising (in a good way) lashes, Essence’s Lash Princess is like royalty in your makeup kit.

Available from chemists and online retailers for around R68.
