Having a cleaner complexion is so important in order to get your daily skincare regime going regularly if you are wanting clearer and healthier looking skin.

The brush is quite effective when used with your regular skincare cleansing products because it looks to dislodge the impurities trapped under your skin, and with the help of the brush, it's certainly more effective in that sense. Therefore it keeps your skin feeling and looking super clean, hence preventing clogged pores and blackheads from developing. For the new year, it's all about looking radiant, healthy and at your very best.

NYE 16' PAMPER ESSENTIALS, GET READY FOR THE NEW YEAR WITH HERBAL ESSENCES NEW MOROCCAN MY SHINE + MY FAVOURITE NATURA SIBERICA SKIN + BODY CARE ESSENTIALS!


HEY EVERYONE! 

To keep up with my NYE special posts, I'll touch base on some of the products that have worked for me and would be so ideal in helping you prep for the upcoming new year. I hope everyone is having a wonderful break so far!

So looking after our skin and hair is our number one priority. With my thoughts and recommendation, I hope this helps you to get an idea of the products being mentioned today - a little more into depth about my experiences. The special products that would be so ideal for a little DIY pamper sessions must have to be of the following products: 
  • Herbal Essences, Moroccan My Shine Collection 
  • Natura Siberica, Oblepikha Foot cream
  • Natura Siberica, Bath Salts
  • Oblepikha and Honey Body Scrub 
These are four essentials needed to help rid any dead skin cells or perhaps protect your hair from further damage. So far from using these products on a daily basis, I have experienced no issues which is a positive thing to note. 

I do hope you enjoy reading x


HERBAL ESSENCES, MOROCCAN MY SHINE COLLECTION

The new Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine Collection features Argan Oil essences which gives out a pleasant fruity and floral fragrances to it. From my previous experience with the other Herbal Essence range, it never fails to disappoint with the scent of the product. I'd highly recommend this product if you enjoy your shampoo and conditioner smelling fruity and very floral. The Moroccan Shine Collection by Herbal Essences look to revitalise dull looking hair and protects it from further damage. It left my hair with an amazing glow and my gosh it felt super sleek, soft and silky after using both the shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis. 

One thing that my hair needs would have to be more shine and better texture. And as for using both the shampoo and conditioner from the Herbal Essence range, it really did the job for what I wanted and I am definitely satisfied about my experiences with this new haircare range.

The Moroccan My Shine Nourishing Shampoo - looks to cleanse your hair and also increasing the shine in it because it's infused with Moroccan Argan oil which comes with a luscious and sweet scent that's super addictive to smell. 

Following the shampoo process, I'd next use the Moroccan My Shine Nourishing Conditioner - which is a creamy and rich formula that has also been infused with Moroccan oil, which in this case looks to help protect your hair from further damage, leaving it super silky and looking amazingly glossy. I could definitely tell a much obvious difference to my hair, it gave more of a silky shine look to it which I was pretty happy about. 

What's so good about the Argan oil you may ask? Well it's said that many centuries ago, Moroccan women would use Argan Oil to preserve and enhance their skin, hair and nails. It was the miraculous Argan tree which consists of this precious oil; really hit it off around the world with the 1867 Paris debut. 

Knowing that my hair can get brittle and dry, after using both the shampoo and conditioner, I can tell that the Argan oil in the products have really helped my hair show more shine and make it feel softer and silkier. It also makes it so much easier to style my hair because it's not dry and brittle. Nowadays my hair is looking healthier and it's all thanks to this amazing Moroccan My Shine collection range. I don't think I've tried a shampoo and conditioner that's been infused with Argan oil before so it was absolutely great to know that this range could assist my hair into looking healthier, shinier and in good condition. I don't get that greasy feeling to my hair as often ever since using these products and I am definitely highly satisfied with this product and will consider repurchasing this at my local supermarket or pharmacy nationally. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
  • RRP $6.49 each for the Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine Shampoo and Conditioner at 300ml. 
  • Available at lending supermarkets and pharmacies nationwide. 
  • Otherwise you can also check out their official website for more info at: www.herbalessences.com.au

OBLEPIKHA SIBERICA FOOT CREAM 

These days there are literally so many foot creams in the beauty market and the question really is...which one is good to use? The Natura Siberica Oblepikha Siberica Foot Cream works to keep your feet feeling soft and healthy. 

The foot cream is actually formulated with a unique blend of wild Siberian herbs and pure Siberian oils. Another cool ingredient has to be the Altai sea buckthorn oil and Yakut sorrel which helps to deeply nourish the skin whilst also maintaining its softness. (If you have rough feet like myself, then I am pretty sure this foot cream will be your ultimate saviour!) Also included in the ingredients is sage oil for its regenerative properties and antiseptic effect. 

The fact that this foot cream can nourish and moisturise your foot and keep it healthy looking, it's quite useful if you happen to have rough feet and are in need of a gentle product that will keep your feet smooth all day long. 

Another positive aspect has to be the fact that the foot cream is free from parabens and glycol, hence making it safe and gentle to use for your feet. This has to be one of the BEST foot creams I have tried out so far and it's worth investing into if you happen to have super dry feet. The foot cream is packed with Vitamins C and E which is what keeps your feet looking and feeling super healthy all day long. (Who here loves having soft, silky smooth feet?) 

The foot cream is packaged in a 75ml plastic tube, equipped with a fancy gold looking twist to open and close lid. It's a squeezable bottle which means that it's so easy to handle and without any mess. 

Did I mention how lovely a foot cream can smell? This foot cream smells so good - almost similar to fresh berries (Not edible guys...but keep dreaming..) It has such a pleasant sweet scent that I am already addicted to smelling this foot cream. The colour of the cream comes in a light, pale brown colour which is thick but has a smooth texture to it. Once applied onto the feet, you can instantly tell that it absorbs so quickly. The next morning, I realised how much softer my feet have become and I am totally loving this product so far. (It's also handy when you have a bottle of this tube right near your bed-side table). The foot cream is so easy to use, after showering and whenever you're ready for bed, be sure to massage in a small amount to your feet. Wash your hands afterwards of course too! 

Overall, I cannot flaw this amazing foot cream because it has simply renewed my feet into looking and feeling healthier and softer. I would highly recommend this  product if you're in the market for a GOOD foot cream. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:

NATURA SIBERICA OBLEPIKHA SIBERICA HONEY BODY SCRUB 

Scrub away 2015, and celebrate into the new year with this amazing body scrub by the Natura Siberica range. This body scrub looks to clean and refresh your skin. Simply relax in the bath or shower and scrub away all of the dead skin cells on your body. 

The body scrub is formulated with a blend of wild Siberian herbs and pure Siberian oils where it contains Altai sea buckthorn oil which is what essentially nourishes your skin and keeps it super hydrated. It does not dry out your skin so thank gosh for that. It also has buckwheat honey which looks to boost the elasticity and firmness of the skin; along with organic sage extract which is the ultimate key ingredient for ridding toxins - leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. 

What is great about the body scrub again is that it comes with no parabens or nasties so you can feel reassured that this product is safe and gentle to use on your skin. The scent of the body scrub is very fruity and sweet (which comes from the honey) - I love it! After using this body scrub, my skin felt super refreshed, clean and silky smooth. If you're in the market for an organic based body scrub where it won't look to make your skin red or irritated, then definitely opt for this one. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
  • Currently on sale at Chemist Warehouse for $16.99 http://www.chemistwarehouse.com.au/buy/77255/Natura-Siberica-Oblepikha-and-Honey-Body-Scrub-300ml

Featuring a revitalising bath salt enriched with the essences and oils of Wild Harvested Siberian herbs which helps to treat against ageing skin, reduce wrinkles and enhance the firmness on your skin. (So what are you waiting for...run a bath and sprinkle some of these bath salts into the tub). 

In case you were wondering whether the bath salts were safe..they are free from SLS, SLES, GMO plants, mineral oils, parabens and glycol. 

My skin definitely felt super revitalised after bathing in this particular bath salt range. It felt very relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time and having baths are always my favourite because it's simply a time to relax. And with these bath salts as an extra, you get a sense of some aroma to the bath which makes bathing so much fun!

 Get your NYE16' essentials sorted for the new year! 


You can find the latest Elizabeth Arden products stocked at Myers or David Jones. 



ELIZABETH ARDEN, FLAWLESS FINISH, PERFECTLY FINISH 24HR

Featuring a flawless finish make-up that lasts for up to 24 hours. 

With a SPF15+ factor to the make-up, this Flawless Finish Perfectly Finish Make-up is ideal for if you are wanting that flawless finish to your overall make-up look. After applying this beautiful Flawless Finish, my skin felt and looked super soft-matte giving an "air-brushed" look to my foundation which I was very impressed with. 

This make-up is quite long-lasting thanks to the long-wearing Polymers that acts as safeguards against transfer and fading. I have to say this is by the far one of the best make-up bases I have used so far because the colour match was right on point and suited my skin-tone amazingly well. A great factor to consider when shopping for the right make-up bases or foundations at the Elizabeth Arden counters is that they are able to do a skin-colour match for your skin, so that you use the correct shade for your skin tone. (This is essential for if you don't know your skin tone at all). 

So for this particular make-up, it's infused with transfer resistant technology which means that by having this make-up on for the whole day, it can withstand heat, humidity and moisture. There are also shine control ingredients that are time released to absorb any oil on the skin so that your skin looks fully matte for longer. I love the shine control element to this particular make-up because I tend to get oily bits around my forehead and cheeks due to humidity or simply excess oil, however thanks to Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Make-up, it really helps in making my skin stay super matte all day long. 

The fact that the Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR has a SPF15+ factor to it makes it even better because you get that little extra sun protection against harmful UV rays to it. The formula is very lightweight, feels of a velvety formula and you get medium to full coverage that blends so easily and evenly onto into the skin. This is the perfect make-up for if you're wanting that flawless coverage that lasts for up to 24 hours and does not clog the pores. 

Overall, after having the make-up on my face for more than 8 hours, I did not feel any greasiness on my skin and this is due to the Vitamin E which ensures that skin stays protected for longer and looks healthier and softer. This particular Flawless Finish Make-up is ideal for those with normal to oily looking skin and is also available in 10 skin-perfecting shades. The fact that the Flawless Finish gives the overall skin a matte-look to the skin, there is simply no need for finishing powder. 

Also contained in the Flawless Finish is actually Bamboo silk which is a natural plant extract that absorbs any excess facial oil that gives you the flawless and shine-free finish. (This ensures that your skin feels light and comfortable to wear all day long). And to add to the list of ingredients, it includes the mineral crystal Mica which helps to blur our any imperfections and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hence giving you that overall luminous finish to your make-up. 

For the packaging, it comes in a 30ml glass pump which makes life much easier and mess-free when it comes to applying your make-up on. 

Finally, I am so in love with this particular Make-up that I have been using it literally every single day! It leaves my face looking super matte and flawless which is the result I always look to achieve when it comes to my overall finish. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 


ELIZABETH ARDEN, BEAUTIFUL COLOUR MOISTURISING LIPSTICK IN SMOKY PLUM 37 

Elizabeth Arden make the best moisturising lipsticks ever, especially when it comes to their new Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick. 


The NEW Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipsticks by Elizabeth Arden are simply luxurious and amazing to use! They contain a blend of skincare ingredients including emollient butters and vitamins such as (Vitamins A, C and E) that all look to condition the lips to ensure that it stays moisturised all day long and the colour lasts for the whole day. It also looks to soothe and protect the lips with its shea butter ingredient.  

The lipstick are super ultra-conditioning and hydrating for the lips that you don't even require a lip balm under the lipstick. Once applied, you'll realise how moisturised and smooth your lips will feel. Did I also mention how pigmented the lipstick was? With just one stroke, you get a nice silky pigment of colour for your lips which is really amazing. There's no need to layer on to achieve a desired colour because with this particular lipstick, it only takes just one stroke. If you're wanting that luxurious wear and the ultimate comfort for a lipstick, then I would highly recommend for you to check out this one!

The Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick keeps your lips feeling soft and smooth for longer which is what I essentially love about them. The colour payoff claims to last for about 12 hours but I managed to get about 3-4 hours of wear until eating or drinking which is still quite long lasting for a lipstick. Lips look fuller and more sumptuous which is why I am amazed by this particular range - especially with the shade in Smoky Plum 37. 

The lipsticks are presented in an embossed Red Door logo packaging and housed in a sleek and luxurious gold looking tube with the signature of the Red Door Design. It is quite unique for a lipstick and it just feels very solid to hold. I am definitely satisfied with this product which is why I will be using it for my lips on New Years Eve as we welcome the New Year.

ELIZABETH ARDEN, BEAUTIFUL COLOR NATURAL EYE BROW PENCIL IN BROWNETTE 03

Create ultra-fine strokes to fill in, shape and define eye brows for a long lasting look. 

The natural eye brow pencil includes a grooming brush that helps you to shape and blend your natural looking brows. This is a long-wearing eye brow product for your brows that gives you high colour pigmentation and looks very natural. There are actually four shades to suit all types of eye brow colours, so be sure to test it out first to get the best colour match for your brows. 

The grooming brush helps to blend in the product really well making it look very natural and to also help it last all day long. The application is quite smooth as the powder is very silky looking and feels comfortable when applied onto the brows. What is great about the product is that it also includes an antioxidant protection that's infused with Vitamin C and E for antioxidant protection. It's also infused with natural mineral pigments and silk powders which help to create that natural look to your brows. The pencil twists to open, so when not in use you can simply twist to close. 

The colour is also waterproof so that it won't transfer or fade when worn on a daily basis. The product is also fragrance free, paraben free and oil free making this product really gentle and safe to use in the long run. This is definitely my go-to brow product for everyday purposes and so far I am in love with the natural look that it gives to my brows. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
ELIZABETH ARDEN, CERAMIDE CREAM BLUSH IN, SHADE PINK 

Featuring a luxurious soft cream blush with skin-caring technology, antioxidants, Vitamins A, C and E that visually lifts and contours the look of cheeks, blushing them with a soft and fresh dewy finish. 

I love how this cream blush is so luxurious and soft to apply onto the skin. There are no powders involved so the process is so much cleaner. The Ceramide Cream Blush by Elizabeth Arden looks to glide onto the skin effortlessly and blends evenly without much effort. It also looks to deliver some added moisture to your cheeks and stays nourished for longer. Cheeks are instantly glowing and look very luminous. The fact that this Cream Blush also provides anti-ageing benefits to the skin really makes it a bonus for this product because what kind of blush does that?

NEW YEARS SPECIAL: PREPPIN' FOR NEW YEARS EVE CELEBRATION! FEATURING NEW SUMMERY ESSENTIALS BY RIMMEL LONDON + TRILOGY 2016

 HELLO EVERYONE! 

First it was Christmas, next it's Boxing Day, then it's New Years Eve! 

And to prep up for the New years Eve, I've decided to release some New Years Eve special posts dedicated to that special occasion. I hope everyone is enjoying these summery holidays, because a much needed break is all we need after 12 months of extra hard work, whether it be career, fitness, goals and many more.  

To kick-start that festive summery season, opt for something different which is why the new Trilogy - Instant Bronzing Gel offers an amazing sun-kissed glow for your skin, whilst the new Rimmel Super Gel provides your nails with up to 14 days of gel colour and shine! (They are really amazing new releases and I cannot wait to share my thoughts all with you guys...so here it all goes) 

I hope you enjoy reading lovelies xo


RIMMEL, SUPER GEL #GELPOWER 

Featuring a new breakthrough in gel nails with only TWO steps needed to achieve superior colour and a brilliant gel finish to your nails. There's no need to visit the nail salon, because you can simply opt for a DIY and have gorgeous gel nails right at home! (This is a great option for those looking to budget and save money for the new year). 

Thanks to Rimmel's new release of their Super Gel Nail Polish, it's so easy to get incredible shine and colour which lasts for up to 14 days. There are no UV lamps needed to achieve the gel-like nails and it dries incredibly fast (I would have to say within 3-4 minutes of not touching anything to get amazing results). 

And the overall results? I thought the glossiness of the nails looked amazing and really looked 3D of a professional gel manicure which is great. What I essentially love about the whole process of painting my nails with this new range is that it's mess-free and I didn't even have to step into the nail salon to achieve lovely looking nails. 

The brush applicator is also comes in an accurate brush which makes life easier as it's neater to apply onto the nails with precision. 

There are only two simple steps to achieve this and they are of the below: 

STEP 1: 
  • Look to apply two coats of the Super Gel Colour using their ultra accurate precision brush for a streak-free, one stroke application. 
  • No need for base coat because there's already built-in base coat which helps to prep the nails for a salon-perfect finish. 
STEP 2: 
  • Next, coat on next layer using the Gel Top Coat. It dries super quick so there's no need to hang around for hours! 
  • The formula is quick and smooth. 
  • Nails give off an amazing salon shine. 

There are 14 shades to select from which is such an extensive range to choose from. I am wearing the shade 031 in Perfect Posy. After coating your nails with the Top Coat, be sure to expose them to natural light to activate the gel formula. It's that simple! 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $14.95 for the Duo packs (which includes the Gel Top Coat), otherwise it's RRP for $9.95 each for the Rimmel London Super Gel. 
  • Available at Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies, selected Coles and Woolworths.
  • For stockists, call 1800 812 663.

TRILOGY, INSTANT BRONZING GEL 

If you've been super busy this XMAS and Boxing Day, have no fear because there's always an alternative in looking to get super tanned before the New Years celebration. I've checked out Trilogy's Instant Bronzing Gel which is an easy self-tan to use before a special occasion. What I love about this particular tan is that it is so easy to get a sexy-kissed bronzed glow in less than 2-3 hours. Ideally, you can look to build an all-natural, shimmering tan with mica, vitamin E and aloe vera.

Summer is finally here so what a way to finally spend more time using the self-tanner! (It's much safer, plus you can easily wash it off). Get that shimmer, colour and hydration by using Trilogy's Instant Bronzing Gel. Plus, it dries so quick and is certified natural and cruelty-free. 

What I realised about this particular self-tanner is that it includes shimmery gold particles which makes your skin shimmer like gold. It's an all-natural, petrochemical-free tan that does not make your skin burn or feel irritated at all. This is pretty much your best friend.

There are three benefits gained from using this product and they include: 
  • Provides an instant caramel colour to your skin. 
  • Builds a sexy, bronzed tan over time. 
  • Adds a beautiful, golden shimmer to your skin. (You'll be literally glowing). 
The tan lasts for up to 2-3 days which is perfect if you're wanting to get a quick tan before New Years Eve. Party it up looking super tanned! 

And for those wondering on what makes this self-tan so natural is that the caramel colour is actually derived from cane sugar which is what provides the skin with an instant summery colour and glow to it; whilst the plant derived DHA works with your skin essentially to help develop a natural glow. The natural mineral Mica reflects the light for a temporary shimmer in case you wondering where the shimmer came from. Then, aloe vera looks to provide the skin with ultimate hydration and with Vitamin E helping to fight against free-radical damage. 

Overall, I am amazed by the instant results of the summery tan and glow. It's such an easy way to do it yourself at home which means that you save on salon costs and time. For New Years Eve, I know that my skin will be fully prepped! 

HOW TO USE: 
  • Exfoliate your skin. 
  • If skin is dry, look to moisturise and allow to fully absorb into skin. 
  • Use a self-tanning mitt to apply on the gel evenly onto arms, legs and to the rest of the body. 
  • Wash hands immediately after application. 
  • Allow the product to fully dry before dressing.
  • If you're after a deeper colour, apply daily until desired coloured tan is achieved.
