Kryolan Fourways Mall

When I studied beauty at The Academy of Beauty Therapy, I also completed my international certification in makeup. I absolutely love spending time experimenting with new makeup looks, and getting to play with beautiful makeup! We were taught using Kryolan, and I immediately fell in love. I couldn’t believe the coverage that their foundation gave; how their colours were bold and vibrant; and most of all the highest quality of each and every product.

I was so excited when I saw that they opened a store in Fourways Mall, and I was their very first customer through their doors. I won a makeover with them, and was so impressed with the service I received as well as the passion of each of the staff members. I was reminded again just why I adore these products, and pop through to their store at every chance I get.

We have some exciting ideas in the pipeline, but I don’t want to give too much away just yet… For now, you can enjoy learning more about them, and make sure you give them a visit next time you are in the area.

Tell me a bit more about Kryolan: At Kryolan, we make make-up. But not like anybody else.
Because unlike everybody else, we actually make our make-up. As one of the first cosmetics brands in the world, we use our own formulas and recipes to manufacture our own products. We think of them. We create them. Formulate them and love them into existence. We’ve been doing this over 70 years. And we’re still doing it today.
There is only one real professional make-up maker. There is only one Kryolan.

You can also see the whole Kryolan story on the website – it is actually quite interesting if you have some time…

Why did you choose to open a store in Fourways Mall: We have been working and selling Kryolan products for more than a decade and developed an absolute trust in the brand and its products. We decided to go all in and took over Kryolan City in Maponya mall. After that the rest was history and we knew we had to bring the brand, that we loved so much, to Fourways. And are we glad we did! We have met so many awesome people along the way and some very loyal customers.

What makes Kryolan such an amazing brand: There truly is no brand like Kryolan! It is one of the very few professional make-up brands that is able to live up to the expectation. Our brand is so diverse and truly caters for every skin tone, complexion, make-up look or whatever your need, we will have it. We have over 7 different foundation ranges that comes in every shape and colour to suit your exact need with cover that you could only dream about. To top it off, all our products from eye shadow to lip stain and foundation is animal cruelty free. We even have a BLUE MASTER vegan brush set!

What services do you offer at Kryolan: We offer everything from make-up consultations to make-up for events and personal make-up lessons. Whether it is your wedding day or you are just a guest at a wedding or perhaps you have a photoshoot with the family, we can help you look amazing! You can pop in at any time for a free foundation matching with no obligation to buy and we will help you find a product that is ideal for your skin tone and complexion.

Is Kroylan for everyone, or only professionals: Kryolan is for EVERYONE! Whether you are a make-up artist, working lady or simply a mommy who likes to look good and feel amazing you can absolutely come to us. Many moons ago it used to only be available to professional make-up artists, but now we are a professional make-up brand available to everyone without exception.

What are some of your favourite products: It will definitely depend on what the occasion… As a foundation, I personally adore the VITACOLOR range as it is ideal for my drier complexion and it has amazing coverage. I always go with the LIP STAIN as it is extremely long lasting and doesn’t dry your lips like some stains can sometimes do. Even if you have to wear a mask, your lip color won’t go any ware! Another amazing product that I can’t get enough of is the SHIMMERING EVENT FOUNDATION that works wonders when you want to add a bronzing effect to your look for those rosy cheeks. But I should probably stop now, because I’ve mentioned 3 products already and the list just goes on and on…

Shepherd with DUAL FINISH Ideal for contouring and highlights as well as to increase the opacity of other foundations.
Adeline Chabane with EYE SHADOW VARIETY 18 COLORS ‘V1’ pallet is a soft pressed powder for dry application.
Phumi Nompumelelo Twala with LIP STAIN ‘Ambient’. This product is a matt, color-intense, long-lasting and smudge-proof lip fluid that you will absolutely adore!
Monica with Shimmering Event Foundation is a very light and gentle fluid foundation for appealing light effects and bronzing.

If people want to know more about your products, where can they visit: First prize will obviously be to visit the shop! We are at shop F60 in Fourways Mall in the upper mall opposite Mr. Price Home. You can also phone the store at 011 516 0631 or send an email to info@kryolanfourwaysmall.co.za. Be sure to follow us on social media too.
Also remember that you can find any product online even if you just want to double check on our prices, it’s all there.

What extra discounts do you offer for professional makeup artists: If you are a professional make-up artist you can apply online for your make-up pro card that entitles you to a 20% discount on all products.

If you had to recommend just 3 products for people to start off with, what would they be: Definitely a foundation with a setting powder as this keeps your foundation on for the whole day! Then I would recommend an eyeshadow pallet (either a 3 or 5 color pallet depending on your need) that you can use for eyeshadow, blusher and contouring if you are in to that…

Are your products cruelty-free: All our products are animal cruelty free! We love animal and our moto is, animals don’t wear make-up, humans do, so why test on animals!

Is there anything that you want people to know about Kryolan: Yes, we have an extremely wide range of products and we would love to have the opportunity to show them to you, so please visit our store! If you know nothing about make-up, let us know and we can schedule a personal make-up lesson for you and show you exactly how to do your own make-up.

Where exactly is your store located: We are at shop F60 in Fourways Mall in the upper mall opposite Mr. Price Home. If you struggle to find us either give us a call or ask the mall security for directions.

Anything else you want to add: At Kryolan we believe in people first, business later! We will never sell you a product simply to push sales, we will always look at your individual needs and then make recommendations for your specific needs.


I cannot tell you how much I love this product, and especially this branch. It is my happy place, and I recently spent some time with these wonderful people learning about their different products and feeling like a kid in a candy store. I discovered their holographic pigments, and would recommend these to everyone, along with their foundation and setting powder for sure. Their range of eyeshadows is like none I have ever seen before, and you can create your own palette with your favourite colours.

Thank you so much to Judi for your time and love, and to all the great staff at Kryolan Fourways Mall. I can’t wait to see you again, to continue to stock my makeup collection, and to just learn from each of you.

The Jozi Girl Eatery

A plant-based diet is definitely something I have been more aware of – especially since watching the Netflix movie, The Game Changers.  It shows the importance of loving your body, & only feeding it the very best that it deserves.  Husband & I have been more conscious of what we have been eating, & our favourite place to go for a date is The Jozi Girl Eatery at Broadacres Centre.

Other than the absolutely delicious food (I am busy working my way through the menu & trying something new every time), the whole vibe is just so relaxed & stunning.  Plus they are pet-friendly, with water bowls & treats at the ready.  Could you ask for much more?

I absolutely love visiting this restaurant, & make every excuse to go there again – meetings, visits, or spoils with friends.  Just note they aren’t open on Mondays & don’t have a liquor license.  However, if you are choosing a healthier lifestyle then this makes perfect sense!

Yesterday I tried their new Vegan Frappuccino in Chai Spice, as well as their Bean & Quinoa Salad.  Their meals are huge so make sure you go there hungry, as when you lay your eyes on the delicious treats you will need to sample those too (the chocolate-filled doughnuts are out of this world).

Thank you Lorna for encouraging us all to live a better life & for providing the most delicious, healthy meals ever.

Lois’s Beauty Studio

When I left school I studied for 3 years to become first a beauty therapist, & then a spa therapist.  I learnt all the basics such as manicures, pedicures, massage & facials; & then moved on to sports massage, reiki & more specialised treatments.  I absolutely loved doing this & meeting all the interesting people that I came into contact with.  Unfortunately when my health took a drastic decline, I could do longer cope with the manual side of things & often could not even speak to my clients. This left me embarrassed  & oftentimes uncomfortable when I couldn’t give of my best.

Coming from this background means that I am quite fussy about who I go to for some pampering, & I had always gone to the same lady in my home town who was a friend of mine too.  I couldn’t bare the thought of going to someone else, & when I did the one time I was horrified at their technique & found I couldn’t properly relax as I could sense that there was no passion behind what they were doing.

When I moved to JHB I had no idea who to try – must I go for the salons based across the company, or should I rather try a smaller home salon?  Do I ask for recommendations on my local Facebook group, or do I see who is closest to me?  And them, I met the wonderful Lois.  Lois has a salon at her house in Fourways & has quite recently brought on 2 more wonderful ladies to assist her out.  She is bubbly, friendly & I always leave with a huge smile on my face.  She truly cares about all of her clients & her treatments are all of the highest quality.

I absolutely love my time at Lois’s Beauty Studio, & I will always recommend her salon to everyone I can in JHB.  I used to travel over half an hour to get to her, but luckily now we have moved just down the road!  I have had massages, manicures, pedicures, waxing & all sorts of treatments from Lois, Winnie & Rashy; & it is such a treat being spoilt & made to feel special.
