Yummy Youth | Chloe's Cleanser, made by Tash

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

My Yummy Youth Chloe's Cleanser just got a packaging revamp, woohoo!

I'm going to mix things up a bit and start with talking about the wonderful human that this product is named after (and her equally wonderful family) before I dig into why this product is so fcking amazing!

Circa 2017, I was truly unhappy, but I am not one to indulge and moan for too long so I decided to make a move to Cape Town (basically a course of action). I have always believed that change can make a big difference in one's life (this might sound obvious, but a lot of people choose the safety and comfort of what they know, no matter how miserable they are). One of the happiest 4 years of my life was in Cape Town when I was studying (ahem, procrastinating and having the time of my life), so I guess in some weird way, I thought moving back there would be just the thing I needed. Turned out it wasn't, but at least I got that 'desire' out of my system.

It was one of the hardest years of my life and I wouldn't have survived it without my dear friend Chloe (and her family). I've known Chlo since University and we used to sit and work on assignments (last minute dot com) at her mum and stepdad's house until the early hours and drink gallons of tea.

When I moved to Cape Town, I barely had a cent to my name, didn't have a job and Chloe and her family 'adopted' me and became my Cape Town Family. Every Sunday I was invited to family lunch and I can't tell you what happiness it brought to my life to be part of a family (same country, different city - it meant a lot).

So to my Chlo, Lesle (mum), Rupert (stepdad) and Ros (aunt), I can never thank or repay you all enough for all the kindness you showed me and I am and will be forever grateful. Love you all very much. Ros, by the way, runs an NPO called Blankets From Africa. Not only an incredible cause but also the most amazing blankets (and other wondrous bits). Support local lovelies.

I have been working on this cleanser for MONTHS! For anyone that is in any product orientated industry, you will know how gratifying it is when you finally get the formula right. So, introducing, my much anticipated, Chloe's cleanser!

Chloe's Cleanser is part of my Yummy Youth skincare product range targeted at adults that want to reverse or prevent the signs of ageing. All my products are made from natural ingredients and homemade.
