Clue App, free for Iphone and Android

 

 August Girl Boss Shopping Guide - Clue AppThis app has become one of our favorite apps and the best cycle tracking app on the market. It has a sleek and minimal design and was created by a woman with the goal of empowering women with knowledge and understanding of their bodies and cycles. It allows you to track everything from your period to skin, to weight, to emotions and more so you can spot patterns. Once you’ve been using it for a while it will predict different phases of your cycle, like most fertile days, PMS and of course your period. It even allows you to connect it with a partner or friends. It’s the number 1 cycle tracking app rated by OB-GYN’s and they’re associated with top universities around the world to allow them to use anonymous data for scientific research.

Good Life Organics Mojo for women, R85 at Faithful to Nature

 

 August Girl Boss Shopping Guide - Good Life Organics MojoWhile new to many of us, adaptogens have a long history and have traditionally been used in Eastern Medicine as medicinal herbs. While it’s important to use them with caution, a small amount of the right adaptogens can help with stress, exhaustion, recovery, and insomnia. This Mojo mix for Good Life Organics is created with women in mind and contains Maca, Ashwaganda and Shatavari to help bring your hormones back into alignment. Our preferred method of using them is between a teaspoon or tablespoon added to smoothies or mixed into yogurt. If you haven’t used adaptogens before, read this and when using them listen to your body – you can feel the effects fast, so if something doesn’t feel right do not continue.

Goddess Menstrual Cup, R255 at Faithful to Nature

 

Goddess Menstrual CupMenstrual Cups have risen in popularity thanks to 2-factors – their ability to save you money and reduce waste. On average a woman will go through 14 000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which at current costs works out to roughly R26 500 spent in your lifetime and lots of waste. What you use is an incredibly personal decision, but if you want to try the Menstrual Cup route, these Goddess Cups are a best seller, last up to 8 months and come in 3 sizes – small, medium and large allowing you to find your perfect fit.

Clinique City Block, Oil Free SPF 40, R355 at Clinique

 

 August Girl Boss Shopping Guide - Clinique City Block SPFWe hear it all the time, the best thing you can do for your skin when it comes to anti-aging is stay out of the sun and always use a good SPF. I’ve been using this SPF for years and it’s become an indispensable part of my beauty routine. It’s not greasy, mimics a CC Cream in feel; but most importantly it offers really good protection. It’s the only thing I apply before long-runs and it lasted through Comrades with one application in the morning and not a hint of a sunburn after.

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails, R89 at pharmacies and supermarkets

 

 August Girl Boss Shopping Guide - Sally Hansen hard as nailsThere’s something about a manicured nail that makes you feel extra polished and ready to take on the work but not everyone loves polish or can afford regular manicures. Worse is when weak nails cause breakages making your fingertips look even messier than you’d like and that’s why we love Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails. It is a glossy clear hardening treatment that comes in a 13.3ml bottle. It prevents your nails from splitting, chipping and cracking and is an amazing alternative to colour painted nails as it enhances the look of your natural nail, giving them a really nice finish. It dries really quickly, lasts a few days and when it does start peeling it is not visible in the way cracked polish is.
