[MY NYE SKINCARE ROUTINE - OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW FEATURING FOR BELOVED ONE NEW PRODUCTS]

 

Hey Everyone, 

Out with the old and in with the new....
As we all prepare for the final countdown tonight on New Years Eve, make sure to get your skin glowing for 2017. 

Achieving a healthier glow is always on my agenda because at the end of the day, your make-up goes on better and having youthful looking skin is essential for feeling better. 

For my New Years Eve skincare routine, I have looked to incorporate a familiar Taiwanese skincare brand known as 'For Beloved One'. If you're in Australia, you may already be aware that they are stocked at our local Sephora stores. You can find more information here and more of what other products For Beloved One stocks as well. 

So let's get straight into what new products For Beloved One have launched recently and how it has helped with my skin concerns. So after you've cleansed your face, you'll move onto the toner, lotion and serum products. I find that as we sleep, the product absorbs better onto the skin which will leave your skin glowing the next morning, hence I always lather on these products just before bed as it's so effective. 

STEP 1 - TONE - FOR BELOVED ONE, MANDELIC ACID RENEWAL TONER (200ml) - RRP $64.00 

This is a facial toner which contains extracts from bitter almonds and Mandelic acid which is 100% safe to use on the skin. This is a mild type of toner which gently looks to soften the skin and then it looks to renew its surface so that you get more of a brightened complexion with gradual use of it. The lotion also has Abyssine®657 which is a polysaccharide found in the deep ocean and what it looks to do for the skin is that it helps to repair and hydrate it for the better. By using this toner over the few weeks, I could definitely notice my skin becoming more moisturised and radiant. Summer can make my skin feel a little dry so every night, I would apply the toner over my face with a cotton pad or you can even use your hands to pat it in. Whenever we hear of acid, we fear that it may give us a tingling feeling, however that is not the case with the Mandelic Acid Renewal Toner. Your skin will feel so much tighter and toned with regular use of it so I would totally recommend this toner if you're after a product that can look to gently renew your skin's surface. 


STEP 2 - LOTION - FOR BELOVED ONE, MANDELIC ACID RENEWAL LOTION (100ml)- RRP $90.00 

Following the toning routine, I would then go over my skin with a lotion such as their Mandelic Acid Renewal Lotion. This moisturising lotion contains AHA ingredients which helps with promoting skin renewal. Just like the toner, it contains extracts from precious bitter almonds and has a pH level of 3.5 making it super safe to use on the skin. So the lotion works to promote a moisturising feeling for the skin as well looks to brighten up your complexion. As I applied on the lotion, it felt gentle and soft on the skin with no signs of stinging which is great. The lotion absorbed onto the skin really nicely and it does look to boost moisture for your skin. The mandelic acid works wonders to reduce acne scars, eliminate whiteheads and shrink the pores.



STEP 3 - SERUM - FOR BELOVED ONE, MANDELIC ACID RENEWAL SERUM (30ml) - RRP $120.00 

The serum contains 20% high concentration of mandelic acid (pH 3.5) and it quite feels gentle on the skin so it will not leave your skin feeling tingly or so. Since it has such a high concentration of the acid, it works effectively to penetrate deep into the pores removing any dirt and oil under the surface. It also helps to prevent melanin forming as it looks brighten up your complexion. After applying on this serum onto my face every night, I have noticed more of a brighter complexion. This is important for me as I do have freckles and sun spots around my face which I am trying to rid, so by using this serum it's the perfect first step for continuing to brighten up my skin complexion.

[CLOSED - GIVEAWAY: GET UP TO DATE WITH THE SeaSack - THE MOST USEFUL BEACH BAG EVER MADE!]


Hello Everyone, 

Boy... when it's summer in Australia it gets extremely hot! Today we experienced one of our hottest summers with temperatures reaching up to 37℃ in the City and 41℃ in the West...and the beach is always a good idea!

Before we can head over to the beach, we need to be packed and ready to go. I teamed up with SeaSack to bring you their most useful beach bag ever. No longer will you lose things because everything will be in the one place. 

The SeaSack beach bag is so perfect for all of your beach travelling essentials. There's no need to bring smaller congested bags to the beach because the SeaSack beach bag will look to fit all of your things such as your surfing gear, towels, beach chairs and many more. The SeaSack beach bag even has waterproof pockets which is awesome for keeping your phone and keys protected from sand or water. These cool beach bags just launched in Australia and I was so excited to try them out for myself. My first impressions of the bag was that it was incredibly spacious and very modern looking. There are two bags available which come in Large (L) and Extra Large (XL) which are $66 (L) and $79 (XL) and can be pre ordered here on the SeaSack official website.   

The SeaSack beach bag features: 
  • 2 x mesh pouches on the sides for the easy to reach items, 
  • 1 x zip safe pouch for your mobile phones, keys and valuable possessions, 
  • Is made from durable 1680-denier polyester, 
  • Comes with flexible straps which means it can be worn as a backpack, shoulder straps or just simply in your hands, 
  • Also comes with a thick layer of padding for the back straps so that it's super comfortable to be worn as a backpack.

Overall, the SeaSack bag can fit many of the essentials I would usually bring to the beach such as towels, spare clothes, beach chairs, mats, snorkelling gear, goggles, hats, sunscreen bottles - just to name a few. It makes an attractive and modern looking beach bag that does not look so bad as compared to others I have seen out there. In regards to the space that it holds, you will be surprised at how much it can look to fit. It's so ideal and very handy to have if you're a regular beach goer, adventurer or simply looking for a beach bag that can hold more of your gear. I definitely love how it features pockets on the side for easy to reach things and then when you unzip further, you'll notice that you can compartmentalise your beach gear in the most efficient and organised way as possible.  

Make sure you check out SeaSack's video below to really get an idea for the size and spec of the beach bag...you will be surprised!

[TAKING THINGS TO A SCIENTIFIC LEVEL FEAT, DECIEM - THE ABNORMAL BEAUTY COMPANY SKINCARE PRODUCTS]


Hello everyone, 

DECIEM, The Abnormal Beauty Company looks onto the scientific side for their skincare and supplement range. Their products are very informative and fun which all help to deliver a healthier glow for your skin...

The Abnormal Beauty Company launched to Priceline stores around Australia and already we are seeing many curious beauties trying out their products such as their Hylamide (HA Blur) which only selected products are available at Priceline stores nationwide. The Hylamide HA Blur is perfect for visible blurring and plumping of the skin. 

For their product packaging, every side is very informative and easy to follow. They sure do bring a chemistry feel to them of which I like because it's different as compared to the other brands out there. Some of the formula used seem complex but the results definitely show after using these onto my skin over the few weeks of testing them out. 

I looked to try out some of their products to see what it could do for my skin and these include of the below....


Fountain - The Phyto-Collagen Molecule in Apple

This is a concentrated dietary supplement that contains a sweetener which makes it taste pleasant when taken on a daily basis.  It contains a concentrated beauty supplement with Hydrolysed Collagen, Wild Phytoplankton, L-Gluthathione and the Hyaluronic Acid maxtrix which helps to support new collagen formation - essential for keeping you looking younger and fresher. You only need two teaspoons of the Fountain (10ml) each day either directly or mixed in with your favourite juice or beverage. I tried out their Apple flavour which I would mix it in with my regular apple juice which tasted the same but with the health and beauty benefits! 

This product is available form their online website: http://fountain.co


NIOD - Sanskrit Saponins (SS)

This is an intense cleansing balm which is made from highly concentrated and refined Ayurvedic plant surfactants. There are no oils, sulphates, esters or any nasties contained in the cleansing balm. If you have any make-up on, it is recommended that you look to remove that first before applying on the cleansing balm. I would us this product once a week in order to get that "intense" cleanse feeling for my skin. 

This is available from Adore Beauty and RY Online


  • 1 - Hylamide Photography Foundation - This product looks to visibly blur any fine lines, rough skin on the surfaces, corrects your skin instantly and most importantly minimises the appearance of large and obvious looking pores on the skin. Essentially I would use the Photography Foundation either alone or under my foundation for a smoother make-up application. I've found this product to really give me the best photographic shots as it doesn't leave my face looking too bright or dull looking. It contains fractionated Silica Complex and Prismatic Hue Correctors which is why I look better in the photos with having this Photography foundation on. This is available at your nearest Priceline store. 
  • 2 - Hylamide HA Blur - This blur product works as a "primer" for your skin as it visibly looks to blur, minimise the appearances of your pores, keeps your skin feeling hydrated and gives it a plumped feeling to it. I found the HA Blur to work effectively with my tinted moisturisers, concealers and foundation as it allowed my skin to become and look more smoother and softer. It's always important to have a smooth base to work with before your make-up application. This is available from https://www.adorebeauty.com.au/hylamide.html
  • 3 - The Chemistry Brand - Hand Chemistry Pro Repair Skincare for the hands - I tend to get dry hands no matter what season it is - which is why using a hand cream that works for me is so important. It's a multi-functional cream for the hands where it looks to target the signs of ageing because the hands age the quickest as compared to the other parts of the skin. I found that my hands felt more firmer, brighter, smoother, hydrated and even the texture was definitely improved after using the hand cream every day. The box reads that you should expect results in 11 days within using the hand cream, and so far I have used the product for more than 2 weeks and already am very satisfied with the results it has given me. The Hand Chemistry Pro Repair Skincare for the hands is available at your nearest Priceline.
  • 4 - Hylamide Pore Control - This pore control serum contains Bio-tech Polyphenols, Sebum-balancing Vector technologies and Oil fighting adaptive crystals which all work to minimise the look of pores on your face. It also helps to regulate sebum whilst minimising the pores on your skin. As I often get shine to my forehead, I have found that the shine and congestion has significantly reduced after applying the serum to the concerning problem areas of my face. It does not look to dry out the skin which is amazing because if anything it helps to increase your skin's ability to retain water while looking to regulate your pores and sebum activity. This is available from https://www.adorebeauty.com.au/hylamide.html

[PRODUCT REVIEW: ARBONNE GENIUS ULTRA SKINCARE DEVICE FOR THE FACE - FINALLY LAUNCHED TO AUSTRALIAN SHORES]


Hey Beauties, 

I was given the opportunity to be one of the first Australians to try out the Arbonne Genius Ultra Skincare device thanks to Arbonne and I am super excited to share my thoughts with you all! 

When it comes to technology I am always super excited to try it out especially when it's in relation to beauty. Beautiful skin always comes first! 

So the Arbonne Genius Ultra Skincare device has finally arrived to Australia and what better way to be one of the few lucky beauties in Australia to give it a try. How the Arbonne Genius Ultra Skincare device works is that it looks to warm up gently at the tip as it works to massage in the products onto the outer layers of your skin. As we look to include the Arbonne Genius Ultra Skincare device into our skincare routine, we're essentially looking to improve the overall complexion of our skin. If there is a device that can really work to enhance the skincare products that we use for our skin then I am totally all for it. 

Other benefits of using the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra is that it helps to target the signs of ageing and allows you to achieve more radiant looking skin. Sometimes, applying on the skincare products manually or (with our fingers alone) is not enough as we need a product that can provide an even application. 

The Arbonne Genius Ultra skincare device was developed with proprietary, patent-pending ultrasound technology. I used Arbonne's Intensive Renewal serum and their RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring eye cream in conjunction with the device to really test out what it could do for my skin. It certainly leaves my skin feeling more youthful, glowing and radiant which is a fact - and it's a very interesting way to allow your other skincare products absorb much better onto the skin. 

The device features: 

  • It emits approximately 300,000 waves per second, this is so other skincare products are absorbed more effectively onto the skin, 
  • Can be used on timed settings - for example the device shuts off after one minute so you can look to apply around your eye areas and all over the concerning areas, 
  • There are three warm settings, allowing you to adjust to a customised application, 
  • The tip of the device is actually patent-pending which means you can cover hard to reach areas, 
  • The device allows for a soothing comfortable feeling which isn't even harsh on the skin, 
  • Made for all skin types to use, 
  • Dermatologist tested. 

Over the few weeks of trialling out Arbonne's Genius Ultra Skincare device I have observed my skin becoming more firm, smoother and softer feeling. There's definitely a slight difference with using this device as compared to using the fingers alone, i.e. other skincare products can get easily absorbed onto your skin. My skin was also looking more radiant as I have used Arbonne's Intensive Renewal Serum which is this powerful blend of proven collagen ingredients that visibly firms the skin and looks to gradually diminish any signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, etc. 

Using the device was very straightforward and is best applied after cleansing your face. I used the contouring eye cream and the intensive renewal serum as my main "after cleansing skincare products" - as I wanted to target the area under my eye and lift my skin a little more. Once you've applied the desired amount of skincare product onto the skin, it's now for time for the fun bit. Simply turn on the Genius device by pressing the 'On' button and look to adjust the warmth level as desired. Then, by using a circular motion - gently move the device to the selected areas on your face of where you've applied the skincare products onto. After one minute, you'll find that the Genius device will turn off automatically. Then, simply repeat this process to cover the other areas on the face. 

With continued use in the longer term of the Arbonne Genius Ultra device, it will definitely look to provide you with more radiant and glowing skin. It's useful as it looks to enable other skincare products such as your serums, etc. to absorb much better onto the skin as compared to if you were just using fingers alone. You guys should totally check out this device if you're looking to upgrade your skincare beauty routine with a more advanced tool for skincare application. 

For more information, head over here to find out more about the Arbonne range. 


I tried Arbonne's Intensive renewal serum which contains a powerful blend of proven collagen ingredients that works to lift your skin and diminish the appearance of any fine lines. 


If you are in need of an eye contouring and lifting eye cream, you'll find the RE9 Advanced super effective in helping to target the undereye areas... 


Last but not least, we have the Arbonne Intelligence, Genius Ultra which can be used for the face and d├ęcolletage.

[CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA: THE BEST HAIR BRUSH STRAIGHTENER ON THE MARKET FEAT. THE DAFNI HAIR STRAIGHTENING CERAMIC BRUSH]


Hello and happy Friday beauties, 

Want to hear about the latest hair straightening brush on the market I recently tested out? It makes a lovely gift for your friends, family, wives or partners...well make sure you keep on reading to learn more! 

The Dafni hair straightening ceramic brush is fast and easy to use - and did I mention it's currently the best one on the market? To use you would simply brush your hair and you'll get straightened smooth looking hair within minutes...it's that easy. There's no need for clips or any fuss which makes your life easier if you're rushed for time and you are wanting a product that can help you to achieve straightened hair within minutes. The Dafni is also safer to use on the hair as it only made for the top recommended temperature of 185° which maintains it constantly within every brush stroke. 

Now some of you may be thinking that there are many cheaper copies out there so what makes the Dafni so unique? It's original and the best one out there with years of technology behind it. It is based on revolutionary technology and a unique patent pending 3D ceramic design surface. With using the ceramic hair straightening ceramic brush, there is no need to iron it which cuts back on time for you. Every morning before leaving for work, I'd turn the Dafni brush on to ensure that my hair looks perfectly groomed, neat and ready for work. When you are using the Dafni brush, you want to only use it on dry brushed hair as this will give the most effective results. You also want to brush slowly in a "pulling motion" so that the heat looks to get right into the inner area of the brush. 

I found that the Dafni hair straightening brush left my hair feeling smoother and looking super straight. It's a great tool for anyone that loves to achieve straightened hair within minutes or are time poor and needing a tool that can look to speed up the styling process of your hair. The ceramic brush feels comfortable and very sturdy to hold! The Dafni is a great gift idea for your friends or family as I am sure they will fall in love with the idea of a ceramic hair straightening brush as it will definitely be put to good use. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $299

[NEW CERTIFIED ORGANIC MAKEUP FROM WORLD ORGANICS, SUMMER SKIN PRODUCT REVIEW]


Hello Beauties, 

Here's a new, organic make-up range that I looked to test out recently featuring World Organics - a New Zealand based company. 

Last November, World Organics launched their organic make-up range consisting of primer, luminizer and their concealer which are all organic and safer to use in the longer term. My first impressions of their make-up is that their concealer and highlighter was incredibly pigmented and could offer that full spectrum for my overall skin complexion. The fact that they are pure organic make-up makes it feel lighter on my skin and so much more comfortable to wear for during the day. World Organics is highly unique among the other make-up products I have tested so far as they are natural, safe and have been sourced from many botanical ingredients. 

Their product packaging is also another adorable key factor to consider as it really lives up to its "organic" look - featuring wooden caps which add a touch of nature to it. I looked to test out three different make-up products from the World Organics range including their Primer (which has been made with 78.15% of organic ingredients), Cream Concealer (made with 23.31% organic ingredients) and Luminizer (made with 73.8% organic ingredients). 

Overall, I was highly impressed with World Organics as their cream concealers were super pigmented and covered my dark circles well, along with minor blemishes. Their primer definitely left my overall complexion feeling well hydrated and I saw less shine to my forehead which is always ideal. And finally...their Luminizer is seriously to die for as it offers that perfect "highlighter" glow for your cheeks or below your brow bone. 

If you're looking to purchase the World Organics products, make sure you head over here to check them out via their official website. 

I'll provide the full review for the products I've tested below so I hope you enjoy the read! 


Certified organic make up products is safer and more gentle on your skin.  


Featuring the Purely Primer by World Organics in Lunar - RRP $55

The organic primer is made with at least 78.15% of organic ingredients which is very lightweight and is full of much needed antioxidants which has been enriched in Aloe Vera and other botanical extracts. I felt that this primer worked well to provide a nice hydration for my skin (before makeup application) and left it feeling smooth so that my makeup could go on "better". I also noticed that by having this primer as my make-up base, that there was less shine to my forehead which is ideal because some primers out there can sometimes make it appear oily which isn't pleasant. The primer also comes with illuminating pearls and Amla and Pomegranate extracts which is essentially the much needed antioxidants. Furthermore, the Primer helps to promote collagen and leave your skin feeling much firm as it contains an extract of Amla. The primer comes in a rich form which means that it's easy to blend out so that your make-up application goes on really effectively such as your concealer and foundations. Ideally, you can wear the primer as a base before applying your make-up or you can wear it alone. 


  •  Luminizer - in Lunar - RRP $28 - If you're after an organic luminizer or highlighter you'll find this cream highlighter easily blendable and super pigmented. The highlighter is very buildable so just make sure you don't apply too much in the one go. It leaves a sheer look on your cheekbones and makes you glow from the rest of the crowd. It feels very hydrating and not even dry which was good to know. It allows you to achieve that angelic and radiant glow for your face if you were after that particular look. Not only can you use the Luminizer on your cheeks, but you can be creative and look to incorporate this onto your eyelids, down the bridge of your nose, inner corner of the eyes or even above the cupid's bow on the lips, etc. I love this "highlighter" as it's cream based which makes it easier for me to blend away! 
  • Cream Concealers - In Rose Sand and Sculpt - (two different contrasting shades) - RRP $35 - The shade in Sculpt is a little too dark to conceal my dark circles and blemishes which is why I'm using this as a contour cream base which is great if you are wanting to create some sort of dimension for the face. (Contouring is key!) Then, we have the shade in Rose Sand which is the perfect concealer for my skin as it blends in so well, especially with concealing my under dark circles and blemishes. This shade is definitely a favourite and one I have been conveniently reaching for everyday. The ingredients have been formulated so that you can look to achieve a healthier glow to your skin and where it feels extremely hydrating for a cream based concealer. 
  • In terms of coverage, I'd give it the full star rating as it perfectly blended and covered up my blemishes and dark circles amazingly well. It does not leave my skin feeling dry which is another factor to consider because if anything, it looks to provide a hydration feel to your skin, leaving you with a radiant glow. The organic ingredients included in this cream concealer is Pomegranate and Seabuckthorn extracts which boosts the concealer's effectiveness by protecting and nourishing the skin all at the same time. When it comes to applying on the cream concealer, remember to use a sponge or clean fingers to blend the cream concealer through. If you are using a sponge, remember to use dabbing motions. Also, when it comes to cream concealers, since I have oily skin during the day, I tend to go over the concealer areas with a mineral based foundation or powder.

[MY TOP HOME DECOR PICKS BY KMART FOR LESS THAN $50 - YOUR LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS DASH!]

 

Hello Everyone,  

You can seriously find many great buys at Kmart, especially when it comes to home decorative items...

Thanks to Kmart I have jazzed up my home office space with their gorgeous and affordable pieces for less than $50. With Christmas coming, I thought why not look to prettify things a little with the simplest things you can buy. I looked to check out the 24-hour Kmart at Southgate Shopping centre in Sylvania which is perfect for the last minute shopper like myself..yes 24-hour which means you can totally stroll through Kmart at midnight for your last minute deals. Kmart is well known for their affordable home decor pieces which is essential if you like a bargain! (Who doesn't) 

Here's are my top picks for home decor items at Kmart: 



Tripod Table Lamp - RRP $20 

This is one edgy looking lamp that leaves your desk space looking a bit more chic and sophisticated. The height of the lamp is 53cm which is the perfect height for your study or office desk as it's not too short or tall. I am quite impressed with this table lamp as it blended well with my office space so I definitely made a great choice there. 


Brass Coloured Metal Planter - RRP $3 

You can look to ultilize this brass coloured tin as either a make-up brush holder or for a succulent you're looking to grow. But as a beauty lover, it's the perfect home for all of my make-up brushes...so girls take note! 



Brass Look Fruit Bowl - RRP $6 

This hexagonal shaped fruit basket as it looks trendy, modern and it's even in a brassy colour too. You can pop your fruits into the bowl or even store your make-up, bath or hair products in it as well. 

Succulent in Brass Pot - RRP $7 
(image below) 

I have a thing for brass coloured accents which is why I had to grab this artificial succulent which looks as close as a real plant. (Not saying that I am bad with taking care of plants...) 



Featuring my brass coloured essentials! 


Such a stunning fruit basket!
