5 Goodleaf CBD Drops worth R1,195
CBD is so much more than just the buzzword of the year. Just take a look at the products reviewed by Improb to see the fondness people have for CBD products and the benefits they claim they get from them. They are widely available these days, whether you prefer to visit a dispensary in person to choose what you’d like, or you’re happy to buy them online and have them delivered directly to your door. You can even get cbd coupon codes and save a little money. Derived from the cannabis plant, with the THC (the compound that makes you ‘high’) removed, CBD is a pure, highly beneficial derivative. New findings are being published every month, but we do know for sure that CBD plant has many benefits – from pain relief to sleep management, skincare, and help with anxiety issues. This would explain the attraction to cannabis with a high level of CBD instead of THC to avoid the narcotic impact, leading to an increase in the use of cbd flowers. Alternatively, people may just use CBD oil by itself instead of sourcing marijuana with high dosages of the cannabinoid. Goodleaf is South Africa’s leading source for safe, tested products. All of their products can be safely used on a daily basis, with dosage clearly marked. You’ll have a bottle of high-quality CBD oil to help you through holiday anxiety and sleepless summer nights.
6 A Phone Strap from Standard Goods for Yourself and A Friend worth R930
Summer adventures often take you to music festivals, the beach and the mountains – you don’t always want to carry a bag with you in these situations. Phone straps are huge in Europe and now, Standard Goods is bringing them to South Africa. The design is super practical, and looks good too. You don’t have to worry about losing your phone, having it stolen out of your back pocket or having to dig it out of your backpack every time you want to grab a picture this summer. I use mine all the time!
7 A Consultation and Skin Peel with Cape Aesthetics worth R800
I have been seeing Cape Aesthetics for all my skincare needs for years – from facials and peels to Dermapen and Botox. I know how great my skin feels after a peel, and how great I feel when my skin looks good. We put our skin through a LOT in summer – chlorine and layers of sunscreen and days in the sun – so it’s always good to give it a little extra love during this time. Cape Aesthetics will take care of you, with a consultation and tailored treatment to keep your skin glowing all summer.
8 A Swimsuit from Billabong worth R1,200
Every body is a beach body! There’s nothing better than starting summer off with a new swimsuit that makes you feel amazing! Billabong’s range of bikinis and one-pieces are what summer dreams are made of! They are comfortable, fashionable and durable and some of my favourite swimsuits available! Take your pick of this summer’s prints and cuts and spend summer in your new favourite swimsuit.
9 A Hamper of Summer Skincare from Cocogold worth R700
Cocogold is a luxe and glittery range of natural coconut skincare products made right here in Cape Town. Formulated with organic, natural and raw ingredients to nourish your skin, reduce the signs of ageing, firm your skin and protect it from free radicals and UV rays. Proudly South African & animal-friendly, Cocogold products will keep your skin hydrated and glowy this summer.
10 A Carry-On Suitcase from Escape Society worth R1,900
The perfect carry-on! This beautiful suitcase is virtually unbreakable, with a durable shell and 360 wheels to make taking it anywhere super easy. Made to fit in all overhead storage compartments of both local and international airlines, this case is ideal for all your summer travels – mine literally goes everywhere with me!
11 A Scented Hamper from Cape Island worth R1000
I am obsessed with everything that smells good – perfumes, diffusers, luxury candles and body products. Cape Island is a luxury South African lifestyle brand whose products are inspired by the beauty of the South African landscape. Their range of African-inspired luxury scented candles smell as beautiful as they look and I permanently have at least 2 in my home. The whole Cape Island experience, from laying eyes on the packaging to lighting the wick for the last time, brings me pure joy! Your house is going to smell like summer, all summer!
12 A Case of Belle Nectar MCC from Pierre Jourdan worth R800
Haute Cabrière’s Pierre Jourdan wines add that extra bit of sparkle to summer. The Belle Nectar, or ‘Beautiful Nectar’, is a bottle fermented MCC created in a Demi-Sec style, so it’s a sweeter version of the super-popular Belle Rose MCC. The wine was matured on the lees in bottle for 12 months and is just what you need to pop on a sunny day.
