Hi guys! Today I will be showing you the newest eyebrow product from Benefit called Gimme Brow* (RRP $32.00 in the shade medium/dark). The product actually builds micro fibres that adheres to skin and hairs to mimic the look of fuller, filled brows. It is really easy to apply with the wand as it is small enough, making it easy to perfect the arch. It goes on a gel and dries to a long wearing powdery finish. I tried this product on my eyebrows - but they aren't sparse enough for me to notice any results so I decided to use my mum for this blog post! Benefit is available from Myer!
Have you tried this product? What is your fail proof brow product? I'd love to know!
Hi everyone! Today I have the new Goldwell - Dual Senses Rich Repair range to share with you. I have been testing out the shampoo, conditioner and a 60 second treatment and wanted to share what I thought of these products! The Rich Repair range is infused with Pashmina Silk proteins and is targeted for people with dry, damaged hair. The Rich Repair Cream Shampoo (RRP $20.95) cleanses gently and repairs deeply. It foams up really well. The Rich Repair Anti Breakage Conditioner (RRP $20.95) helps to reduce hair breakage, while restoring hair's natural elasticity. I always loose a lot of hair after I wash it so I can't say if this product is helping on that aspect just yet. The 60 second Treatment (RRP $20.95) regenerates the hair up to 100% in 60 seconds restoring severely damaged hair. Also helps to improve suppleness and shine. I wouldn't classify my hair as intensely damaged, but I do have quite a few split ends and this treatment has made my ends look a lot smoother and well groomed after each use. Using all 3 products in conjunction with one another has been a nice new regimen for washing my hair. It makes my hair feel super soft and smooth and has a wonderful rich aromatic fragrance. It works really well at removing dirt and cleansing the hair, as well as keeping it nice and hydrated. Goldwell is available from Hair House Warehouse, Price Attack and selected salons nationally.
As Christmas fast approaches, many brands are bringing out really awesome Christmas gift packs that are better value for your money! Recently, David Jones has introduced the new Christmas gift packs by Laura Mercier. One of my favourites from the packs would have to be the Mini Lip Glace Collection (RRP $45.00) that includes 5 shades to choose from. It's a perfect stocking filler for the women you have to buy for, whether you decide to give the whole pack, or put 1 of each mini lip glace in their stocking! I'm especially loving the colour Pout*, a bright nude pink gloss that complements my tan skin tone perfectly. It glides on easily and has great coverage, as well as maintaining the super glossy look! It does settle slightly in the lip lines so make sure you prime the lips before using this (otherwise a lipstick will help avoid this problem). Stay tuned for an extensive Christmas gift guide post coming soon!
Hi guys!! Today's AW theme is Polka dots! I went for a very simple monochrome polka dot look using 2 coats of OPI - Alpine Snow and 2 coats of Orly - Black
Onyx. I like these simple nails and love them on my short nubbins!
Check out the other girls nails for this week's theme!
If you are lucky enough to live near aDaiso then you'll know that coming out empty handed is impossible - especially when everything is only $2.80! Daiso stocks over 70,000 products from cosmetics, kitchenware (my favourite), food, homewares, stationary (close favourite too!), lifestyle products and toys too! There is actually a new flagship store opening on Thursday the 28th of November in Melbourne so if you're from Melbourne go check it out! You won't be able to miss the purple place!!
If you don't know, I absolutely LOVE cooking, baking and creating wonderful food. Whenever I go to Daiso I always visit the homewares and kitchenware section and here are a few of my favourite things I received:
Daiso Dust Bin* - with a super cute Cath Kidston inspired design
Love heart Icecube Tray* - I want to start putting juice into my ice trays and make a nice refreshing snack! Bookend* - One issue i've found with this product is that the word "Book" is backwards when you put it on one side of all the books! Bummer! But this also works well as a recipe book holder - when you are reading through a book you can lean it against this with the page open. It also works well at holding iPad's to view recipes too! Tea Cup* - I love the bright pink silicon band so I can hold the cup without burning my fingers! Plastic Cutting Board* - This is really useful to use when camping or wanting to transport food from the bench to the fry/saucepan! I love how easy it is to clean this as well!
With the Australian Summer approaching us, we need to ensure we are reaching for our SPF50+ sunscreens for daily use. Did you know that 80% of UV radiation can penetrate through light cloud cover? It is astonishing how many studies are showing that UV rays are greatly affecting our skin, which can lead to premature aging. I for one want to have glowing, wrinkle-free skin like my mum at the age of 56! (Might also have something to do with her European background). Nonetheless, I admittedly have found it difficult to wear sunscreen consistently. As I have tan skin, and hardly burn when out in the sun, I used to use that excuse to not wear sunscreen - which is such a big NO! I just hadn't found a sunscreen product that didn't make my skin look oily, and make it feel greasy and sticky at the same time..
Since trying the new SunSense Face SPF50+ Range I am officially converted. Their Sunscreen are all fragrance, PABA, lanolin free, non-comodogenic and leaves a matte-like finish. The sunscreen range also contain added Nicotinamide (not related to nicotine, is actually part of the Vitamin B group) and Vitamin E. I have really enjoyed using the Invisible Tint Finish Sunscreen* (RRP $14.99 - $25.95 for 75g and 200mL respectively). It has a slight pink/flesh tone colour but easily blends. It is quite sheer so is not for full coverage but helps to brighten the skin for a fresher look. I've been wearing this everyday for over a week and have loved the way it keeps my skin feeling soft all day. A great gift idea for Christmas would be the SunSense Moisturising Face* (RRP $13.95 for 100mL) or the SunSense Anti-Ageing Face* (RRP $20.95 for 100mL) which are also great stocking fillers, or hamper gifts for the adventure junkie! It is slightly thicker then the tint sunscreen and leaves skin looking slightly oily looking but is actually oil-free and ideal for all skin types. I also love that they come in smaller sizes, which are PERFECT for travel, or chucking in your beach bag for a day out! One other product I am obsessed with at the moment is the SunSense Lip Balm* (RRP $5.95 for 15mL). It is a rich, unscented, creamy white lip balm that absorbs very easily and leaves the lips feeling super soft and hydrated. I love the added cocoa butter! I can't wait for Summer to be here (8 days!!) so I can go to the beach a lot and have lots of fun, with the protection of SunSense, of course!
Hey guys!! Today I have the newest epilator to show you by Remington. Have you all heard of an epilator? If not, it is a small machine that pulls hairs out from the roots and has been my hair removal method for many years now! I was excited to give this new one a go because it can be used on the face which intrigued me! I'll be honest, epilators do hurt at first, but after using it for almost 5 years now I have definitely gotten used to the feeling and I can do both underarms in less than 5 minutes! Not to mention it has made my course, thick, greek hair much thinner and sparse ...yay!!
The Face & Body Epilator* comes complete with 2 washable heads - a shaver head with dual trimmers and an epilator head. The epilator head can remove hair as short as 0.5mm and there is also a precision light so you won't miss a single hair! It also comes with an angle cap to ensure optimal tweezing for the selected area, a detailed cap which is perfect for the face if you want a smaller area being epilated and a massage cap that is infused with aloe vera to help reduce discomfort. This epilator retails for $79.95 and is available online at www.remington-products.com.au. All Remington products come with either a 2, 3 or 5 year warranty. I love this product - it works so well at removing hairs precisely and leaves my skin feeling smooth. I can definitely tell the difference between this one and my 5 year old one - it just picks up the hairs so much better, less noise, and a more convenient size for storage and travel. I used this effortlessly on my underarms and decided to try it on my top lip. I was a bit scared and flinched a fair few times when doing it - as the top lip is super sensitive but I managed to use it quite easily on that area too! I am in love with this product and perfect timing for the bikini weather months ahead!
Will you be using an epilater to get summer ready??
