What other customers say

Helped with my rosacea


I have used the Fijnbos Cape Cactus Jelly and Fijnbos Facial Essence since 2019 when they were launched. As I am a sufferer of rosacea, genetically passed down from my dad’s side of the family, I use them as part of my morning and evening facial routine and to date I have not had a break out.

Lifesaver for my teenage son


My teenage son uses the Fijnbos Cape Cactus Jelly every morning as it soothes and calms his teenage acne flare ups and provides his skin with moisture during the day. Teenagers do not like lengthy facial routines, that’s why the Fijnbos Cape Floral Facial Wash and the Fijnbos Cape Cactus Jelly have become his lifesavers.

Luxury in a jar


Wow, this product is just luxury in a jar. I lie in bed every night and breathe in deeply whilst massaging this gently into my face. What an absolute treat! The relaxing smell just takes this wonderful product to the next level. Luv, luv, luv!

Literally changed my life


I love this product because it not only clears my skin and helps with my pigmentation, but it heals the skin. It has given me confidence again to go out without my make-up. It moisturises and hydrates… I could go on and on. This product has literally changed my life. During these times of masks and sanitizers, I need a good product more then ever to keep my skin safe and looking good, and I have found that in Fijnbos.

Can see the difference


All I can say is that I’m in love with this product. My mom even said she can see a big difference in my skin. My complexion is back and is looking smooth and hydrated. As a single mom, I don’t get the chance to do a regular pamper or even a proper nightly routine, and this one product does everything I need.

Phenomenal product


I don’t go a day without it! It’s been the best product for my skin. It’s so nourishing, and gives my skin a healthy glow. It also helps with all sorts of stings and burns. Just the other day my hubby burnt his hand with a glue gun. I applied the Cactus Jelly everyday, and within a short time his hand was totally healed. I even used it on my son’s sunburn the other day. It’s really a phenomenal product.

Changed my skin’s life


This product changed my skin’s life. Great for pigmentation while nourishing and moisturising. I am in love with the smell and the feeling of freshness on my skin.

So many amazing properties


I fell in love with this product the minute I applied it to my skin – I love how cooling and fresh it feels on my face. It has so many amazing properties and it has really helped me with my acne marks. I also love the fact that this product is Proudly South African, from our homeland.

All round must-have


This is an all-rounder used and loved by everyone in my family. I use it as a treatment product, and my daughter uses it on her acne. My son recently got burnt with cooking oil while frying food and found it immediately cooled the burning sensation. A must-have for every home.

Speeds up healing

Marion - Cape Town

This gel is so wonderfully soothing. It’s excellent for sensitive skin and helps keep my rosacea at bay. I’ve also used it on burns and scratches – it cools and calms the skin instantly, and speeds up healing remarkably.

Skin feels great

Greg - Cape Town

I find that using the Cactus Jelly really helps moisturise and soothe my dry skin after shaving. I love that it absorbs totally into my skin, leaving no residue. My skin looks and feels great!

Healed my acne scars

Anja - Cape Town

I grew up with facial acne, and that left me with a lot of scarring and dents in my skin. I’ve tried so many different products – and now I’ve found one that really works: Fijnbos. After just one month of using the Cactus Jelly and Fijnbos Facial Essence, my skin is clear and smooth. I’m now confident enough to go out without wearing make-up – and that is huge for me.

My absolute favourite

Shehaam - Cape Town

I love how easily the Cactus Jelly absorbs into my skin, instantly hydrating it. After two minutes, I massage in the Facial Essence, which makes my skin look and feel radiant. I apply them in the morning and come afternoon, my skin still feels hydrated. Best of all, my pigmentation marks have lightened as well.
