Look to cleanse your way to soft and more radiant looking skin. Recently, I made the switch to the ageLOC, LumiSpa cleansing device by Nu Skin. 

The ageLOC LumiSpa by Nu Skin looks to clear makeup, dirt and toxins delivering a more radiant and clearer complexion. The difference between other cleansing devices I've previously used is that the LumiSpa doesn't have a brush head. Instead, it has a silicone treatment head which feels super gentle is more hygienic surprisingly. 

On February 14 2018, Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. announced the official Australian and New Zealand launch of ageLOC LumiSpa, which is essentially a new dual-action skin care device that simultaneously delivers a skin-perfecting treatment and deep cleansing benefits to reveal smoother and softer looking skin within one use. 

Similar to a facial massage, the LumiSpa does many wonders in helping to deliver the much needed skin benefits including: 
  • Purifying the pores to cleanse away trapped dirt, oil and toxins, 
  • Renews the skin, 
  • Minimises the appearance of pores, 
  • Smooths the skin, 
  • Enhances the radiance of the skin, 
  • Gives you more of a refreshed and healthy complexion, 
  • Looks to increase the appearance of volume and density 

So to really get down to my thoughts about the LumiSpa, I really enjoyed cleansing my face with this device. The fact that the silicone brush heads are hygienic and smooth on the skin, it really makes my life easier. The brush heads come in normal or firm and I would say that they feel so much more gentle on the skin as compared to actual brush heads. The silicone brush heads come with a life of three months before you need to replace them. As for the actual cleansing device, it holds well in my hands which is great for optimal control. Also, it's waterproof and comes with a charging base making it handy to store on your bathroom cabinet. It's perfect to use whilst you're in the shower on even when you're taking a bath. 

After using the LumiSpa, I could definitely note a visible difference with my skin. My skin's texture felt so much smoother and radiant. It really helped to remove all of my makeup of my skin after a night out. It didn't leave my skin with any dry patches which is always great to know that it works for me. If you're on the lookout for a device that helps to deliver more than seven skin benefits, then I would highly recommend for you to check out ageLOC LumiSpa by Nu Skin. 

The ageLOC LumiSpa by Nu Skin device RRP $199 and you can visit here to check more information out.

Did you know Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world? 

Hamilton offers the highest level of protection with its SPF 50+ formulations. It is important to reapply sunscreen at least every two hours. Hamilton's Everyday Face sunscreen in SPF 50+ is compact and lightweight, where it's the perfect size to carry in your handbag. 

If you want to reduce the signs of fine lines and ageing, it's so important to focus on protecting your skin for everyday. I've been using the Everyday Face SPF 50+ by Hamilton as it comes with a high level of UVA and UVB broad spectrum. It's also very moisturising and has a sheet tint with a light matte formula - making it suitable for an everyday wear. Thanks to Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, this sunscreen works to keep your skin from becoming dry. If anything, it feels super moisturising and for a sunscreen this is a great benefit. 

Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before exposure to UV in order to create the intended protective barrier. It should be applied liberally and evenly to clean and dry skin.

Facial masks are a great way to rejuvenate and replenish the skin. 

Once a week I would look to dedicate some "me" time by looking to give my skin some TLC with my favourite masks. Of the masks I've recently tried out, I have been so far impressed with the results that it has given to my skin. When your skin is feeling a little dull, dehydrated and dry sometimes it's best to use a facial mask that looks to give you more of a boost and moisture for the skin. 

The masks that I've tested out include the Rubber Mask, Moist Lover by Dr Jart+ and the Multi-Masking Bento Set Mask to Perfection (Facial In A Flash Mask Series) by Skin Inc. Both of these masks are currently or will be available at your nearest Sephora store in case you were wondering. Both brands are originated from Korea so you can ensure that only the best ingredients have been used for these facial masks. After all...Korea was first country to start off with these amazing facial masks.   

Here are my thoughts with each of the facial masks I've tried out: 

Rubber Mask Moist Lover by Dr Jart++ 

I know some of you may be even freaked out by the packaging at first, but believe me this is one moisturising mask to use on a regular basis! It's made for those with normal, combination, dry and sensitive type of skin. 

So this mask consists of two steps with one starting with the Rubber Mask Hydration Lover - Moist Intensive Ampoule Pack. Look to massage all of the product onto your face and let it absorb. Secondly, open the Moist Wrapping Rubber Mask and look to apply it onto your face. There will be two sections (i.e. top and bottom masks) where you would have to apply this directly over your face. 

What the mask does it that it looks to stimulate the delivery of actives into the skin while cooling for a radiant and healthy complexion. If your skin is suffering from dryness, redness, irritation, uneven texture and dullness, this mask will be effective in helping to reduce those effects. Thanks to its unique ingredients which is contained in the highly concentrated ampule serum and rubber mask, it's essentially designed to hydrate and soothe the skin for the better. 

After using this mask, I could note that my skin felt more softer, supple and dewy. It even feels super clean and pure. It really does look to deliver a whole heap of moisturising benefits to the skin thanks to the Green Seaweed extract, Vitamin C and minerals - which all help to keep your skin feeling balanced and supple. 

The Rubber Mask Moist Lover by Dr Jart++ is available at Sephora. 

Multi-Masking Bento Set Mask to Perfection, Skin Inc 

The Multi-Masking Bento Set Mask to Perfection by Skin Inc includes 1 x Soothe-N-Purity Black Gold Mask, 1 x Lines-Be-Gone Rose Gold Mask and 1 x Get Glowin® Platinum Mask. 

So essentially you would use the masks for these following benefits: 
  • Calming and detox
  • Anti-ageing and firming
  • Brightening and radiance 

Usually I would pop on a face mask when I notice that my skin is becoming dry, acne prone and simply dull looking. Now you can look to customise your masking regime all thanks to the Multi-Masking Bento Set Mask to Perfection, Skin Inc. Each of the face masks are infused with the Skin Inc Signature Serums including Vitamin A, B3 or C. Each of the hydrogel masks come with top and bottoms (so essentially halves) which means that you could mix and match to create a skincare solution that suits your skin condition. 

Overall, I love the mix and match concept because you're not just using one whole face mask. You can look to target certain areas with either a Calm & Detox mask or Anti-ageing & Lifting mask. 

The Multi-Masking Bento Set Mask to Perfection by Skin Inc, RRP $46 is available at Sephora

Also, the lip balm comes in SPF15 making it ideal for everyday wear and protection.

EcoTools are excited to introduce their latest brush collection, the 'Bukis'.

Wait till you get your hands on the new Bukis by EcoTools. The three new Bukis are made for the face and body application, as well as maximum control when looking to apply on your makeup. Can you believe the brushes are eco friendly and vegan too? They have definitely become my favourite tools for everyday and I just love how the brush head features fully dense bristles, which allow for precise control and application of makeup. 

All three brushes have uniquely cut bristles designed for a different purpose such as the below: 

  • Glow Buki, RRP $19.99 - This is best for all of your highlighting needs. The Glow Buki features full, tapered bristles as well as a pointed tip so that you can focus on your powdered highlighters. To focus for a touch of highlight, look to dab only the tip of the brush and apply to the brow bone, cupid's bow and the bridge of the nose. The brush feels fluffy and soft which is perfect because it's not too rough and won't irritate the skin. 

  • Sculpt Buki, RRP $19.99 - This particular brush is designed with a unique waved brush which is made for the contours of your face. If you want to achieve chiseled and defined cheekbones, then you're going to find the Sculpt Buki absolutely helpful. Simply sweep the Sculpt Buki brush to either the hollows of your cheeks, forehead or jawline. This brush makes blending so much efficient thanks to its full density brush and if you're after more of a defined look, then make sure to check out the Sculpt Buki. 

  • Bronze Buki, RRP $19.99 - This brush features longer tapered bristles which assist with a flawless and all over application. I found this brush to be very useful for my finishing powders, as it gives of an even application. The brush feels so sturdy and comfortable to hold in the grip of my hands. It no doubt allows for precise control and makeup application. The bristles again feel absolutely soft and it's no wonder that I've been using all three for my everyday makeup application. It's effective and easier to use, especially when it comes to going up close to my mirror. 

Overall, these cute Bukis by EcoTools allows you to get close your face and achieve a flawless application. They're a definitely must have staple in your makeup bag.

NYFW FALL 2018: Featuring some of the hottest hair & makeup looks 

Based on what I've observed over the past few years for NYFW, I've seen undone waves, sleek back styles, minimal makeup and high pony tails come into play. On the New York runways, the styles are definitely simple and edgy. These days hair stylists and makeup artists are taking the extra risk with bringing back old school plaids, loose waves as well as the bare minimum makeup look. 

Below I've featured the hair and makeup trends that have been inspired from NYFW Fall 2018: 


Look #1: Undone waves with a boost of volume 



Look #2: Loose waves with a statement lip look

Look #3: Hair styled with loose waves flipped to the other side 



Get this look with the products below: 

Tarteist™ PRO Cruelty-Free Lashes by TARTE

These single set of vegan lashes come with a comfortable-fit cotton strip. Pictured above is in 'Centre of Attention' and they really look to give you more of a voluminous and natural look for the eyes. These lashes aren't too heavy which is perfect for an all day wear. 

The Tarteist™ PRO Cruelty-Free Lashes by TARTE is now available at Sephora stores. For those in Australia, you can check it out here

Everlasting Glimmer Veil by Kat Von D Beauty, RRP $33 

For that extra sultry and bold look, you can opt for a similar colour such as Dazzle in the Everlasting Glimmer Veil by Kat Von D. It works to last as long as 24 hours for a liquid lipstick that features a glimmer finish. The consistency of the lipstick is rich, glimmery and non-gritty. Most importantly, it's super lightweight and feels comfortable to wear on the lips all day and night. 

The Everlasting Glimmer Veil by Kat Von D Beauty is now available at Sephora stores. For those in Australia, you can check it out here

OUAI, Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets 

These anti-frizz hair sheets are a life saver if your hair type is straight, wavy or curled. Similar to a hair oil, this cute pack contains 15 sheets that quickly tames frizz and fights dry and static-prone type of hair. Perfect for everyday you can simply pop this into your handbag. To use simply unfold and swipe the sheet from roots to ends (using a downward motion). You'll start to notice that your frizz will disappear, plus your hair will look smooth and shiny as ever! 

This product is every hair stylist's dream especially when it comes to NYFW, because they're always on a schedule and it's the best quick fix that helps to tame any unwanted frizz. 

The Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets by OUAI will be available at Sephora stores (Australia).

OUAI, Wave Spray 

In order to achieve the loose and undone waves, you're going to need a lightweight spray such as the Wave Spray by OUAI. It works like a hair mist that contains rice protein which helps to hold your hair up effortlessly. 

If you're after beachy waves, undone hair, texture and volume then the Wave Spray is your best bet in this case. The fact that it's made with rice protein makes it safer for your hair in the longer run especially if you have colour or keratin treated hair. 

To use simply spray some into your roots (whilst it is damp) and look to blow-dry to style the hair as desired. You'll even start to notice how shiny it will leave your hair looking. Plus, you can't go wrong with its irresistible floral fragrance which consists of notes such as a bergamot, Italian lemon, lily, blackberry, violet, amber, patchouli and more. 

The Wave Spray by OUAI will be available at Sephora stores (Australia).

Southern Belle Volume Boosting Root Lifter by Drybar 

The Southern Belle Volume Boosting Root Lifter by Drybar is ideal for those with straight, wavy or curled type of hair. It works as an ultra plumping spray that targets the roots for an instant lift and boost of volume. It looks to provide amazing hair texture and volume minus the greasy feeling which is great. I've only used this on my damp hair and blow dried as usual - and I was so impressed with the volume and texture that I achieved. 

Hair stylists would opt for a root lifter and volume booster product when it comes to amplifying the hair volume. For any undone or messy beach wave look, the trick is to use a spray that works to lift the roots and add a whole heap of volume to it. 

The Southern Belle Volume Boosting Root Lifter by Drybar will be available at Sephora stores (Australia).

Look #4: Rocking that bare minimum makeup look 



Look #5: Rocking dark smokey eyes with a flawless look 


Bye Bye Breakout™ Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer, IT COSMETICS 

Another holy grail product that has definitely caught my eye has to be the Bye Bye Breakout Full Coverage Treatment Concealer by IT COSMETICS. It's made specifically for those with normal, dry, oily/acne prone skin and comes with a matte type of finish. It works to target acne, blemishes, oiliness as well as redness. 

This colour infused skincare innovation contains full-coverage pigments which effectively conceal the look of acne and blemishes without causing any creasing. The product is infused with anti-ageing peptides and hydrolyzed collagen as well as oil absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, sulfur and a gentle AHA/BHA complex. 

This is perfect for those with oily to dry combination skin type as it covers acne scars so well. The product comes with an applicator which is great for spotting treatment but if you want to last longer, then don't forget to set the areas with powder. 

The Bye Bye Breakout™ Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer by IT COSMETICS will be available at Sephora stores (Australia).

Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner, Marc Jacobs

To achieve a dark, smoky eye you can opt for the Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon eyeliner. It's not too dark which means you can use this on the top and bottom waterline. The formula offers an intense colour payoff and it comes with a soft, matte finish and creamy gel texture that glides easily over the lid and waterline. 

Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner by MARC JACOBS RRP $36 is now available at Sephora stores (Australia).
