Nourishing, high quality, luxury skincare
17 May, 2016, By Robyn
Mbiri skincare is one of the newest kids on the block and after being given the entire range to sample, I am converted, as is the rest of my family. The products have been created with the dry Namibian climate in mind, using precious Namibian myrhh and even the bodywash will leave your skin feeling moistursied. Think nourishing; high quality luxury skincare that is probably a third of the price it could be! Sold.
