Dreams come true thanks to local skincare brand

“Can someone wake me up from this dream?” says an emotional Mathaphelo Mofokeng after finding out she’d just won the grand prize of R50 000 in Clere’s R1 Million Cash Vault Competition. The competition ran from April until the end of July this year, culminating in a grand prize handover Spring Day lunch last week. Known for their life changing prizes through annual in-store promotions, Clere brand manager Su-Marie Annandale said it was wonderful to be able to celebrate the winners in person again.

30-year-old Mofokeng from Thaba Tshwane purchased the winning product, Clere Argan Butter crème, at her local Shoprite. “I started using Clere in 2007 after struggling for years with rough, patchy skin. Not long after I started applying Clere could I see the results; radiant, clear, problem-free skin!”

When asked what she was going to do with the money, she replied “pamper myself!” with a glint in her eye. “I’d also like to do some much-needed renovations on my home and help my brother pay for his driver’s license, and to attend a technical college he really wants to go to but hasn’t been able to due to financial constraints.”

Mavis Ngqayimbana from Khayelitsha walked away with R20 000 in prize money on the day. On her prize being revealed, the 59-year-old said, “this is a life changing moment.” Ngqayimbana entered the competition on purchasing a Clere Vanilla Honey Cream crème from Spar, saying that she had never won anything her life before now, but thought why not give this one a go, it may be different. And it certainly was!

She has been a long-time user of Clere, ever since she was a young girl, and loves the way it feels on her skin, the moisture it provides and the glow it gives her. Ngqayimbana will be using her prize money to finish building her house after she unfortunately ran out of money and had to stop all improvements.

Clere has changed many lives for the better over the years. “It’s always an honour and privilege to change people’s lives this way and it feels incredible to be able to give prizes away to such deserving winners, especially now with times as tough as they are economically,” Annandale concludes.
