Local Businesses,  Skincare & Make-Up


I LOVE perfume!  My special scent that my husband has always liked is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, & once I had used it once I was hooked too!  However, when finances were a bit tight, then this was the first thing to go.  Then a few months ago I came across Michelle’s page, The Beautiful Way, & contacted her immediately.

Michelle was super helpful & immediately had advice & ideas on which one I should get after I told her which types of scents I liked, as well as a recommendation for husband.  They arrived within 2 days & we both LOVE our perfumes – plus have received compliments from friends & family.  This wonderful lady graciously answered a few questions about what she does below:

My name:  Michelle Burgess

My Business:  The Beautiful Way

What do I do:  I have an online Facebook business (The Beautiful Way) where I promote and sell an upmarket Skin Care/Cosmetic range as well as Premium Branded Factory Reject Perfumes.  The skin care range is what got me started on the business at first but it was a little slow as its an expensive Imported range.  The perfumes, however, have really taken off.  I have found that there is a huge market of people who simply cannot afford to buy expensive perfumes from the stores but would really love to own their favourite brands.  These perfumes are not perfect as they are Factory Rejects / Parallel Imports but closer to the store bought ones you will not find.   I have just included MAC and Estee Lauder make up to my Group. These are AAA Grade make up importers mostly from Singapore. They are not originals but 99% as close as you’ll get at a fraction of the price.


Price range:  Most of the perfumes sell at R380.  There are a few more expensive ones which will sell for R400 – R420 each.  This excludes delivery.

What do I recommend?:  I try not to as everyone has very different tastes when it comes to perfume.  Its a very personal choice.  Everyone skin types reacts differently to different fragrances.  I order stock at least twice a week so delivery is pretty quick to.  I deliver everywhere in SA using a courier service.

You are also welcome to contact me if you’d like to receive more info regarding any of the products I sell on 0854065009.

Quote I live by:  Train yourself to find the BLESSING in everything!!

I am really impressed with the quality of the perfumes that I have received & I love that fact that I can now spritz a beautiful scent on to me & make my day that little bit better.

Please contact Michelle should you have any queries or wish to place your order – I have already warned her that I am going to camp in her garden when I have no money left at month end after buying too much!

I am a fun-loving, sometimes crazy, 30-year-old that lives every moment as it comes... Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2004. This is about embracing my inner child; creating a bit of DIY; learning to love myself again; & not caring so much about fitting with society's expectations. I also want to showcase the amazing talent that we have in South Africa & support local wherever possible.
