HOW TO RID ACNE & ACHIEVE CLEARER LOOKING SKIN WITH 3 SIMPLE STEPS FEATURING BENZAC'S EXCESS OIL CONTROL RANGE


Benzac just launched their new excess oil control, a new moisturiser that's formulated for oily to combination skin. It acts like a primer, preparing your skin for make-up. If you're wanting to know how to achieve clearer skin again, make sure to check out the below. 

With the new launch of Benzac's Excess Oil Control which is a Daily Facial Moisturiser, made for oily to combination skin, it works to control any excess oils leaving you with moisturised skin for longer. 

Achieving clearer skin and reducing acne all comes down to many factors such as diet and skincare products. You too can look to achieve clear and glowing looking skin with the help of products that are made especially for acne sufferers. I'm not a professional when it comes to acne products, but I do know what works for my skin and what doesn't. I've been following a simple 3-step cleansing routine which incorporates the Benzac range, and so far I've found that it has definitely helped to clear up any unwanted acne on my skin over the past few weeks. In conjunction to that, I've also boosted my water intake in hopes that it helps to flush out any toxins, etc. 

All of the Benzac skincare products as mentioned are available at Priceline and Chemist Warehouse stores. 

Check out my simple 3 step daily routine - 


Benzac, Daily Facial Foam Cleanser, RRP $12.99 

This foam cleanser is perfect for those with acne prone skin. It controls any oiliness without drying the skin which is great because it helps to remove any impurities at the same time. The cleanser also contains Aloe Vera and Calendula which leaves your skin feeling refreshing and soothing. 


Benzac, Effective Acne Treatment

The Acne Gel looks to unblock your pores, blackheads and whiteheads on the skin. It effectively works to kill any bacteria. As soon as I notice any spots or acne on my skin, I'd apply some of the acne treatment onto it to ensure that any bacteria is killed. 


Benzac, Excess Oil Control Daily Facial Moisturiser, 
RRP $18.99

This Daily Face Moisturiser worked so well on my skin because it's made for those with oily to combination skin. This is Benzac's latest product to the market and looks to provide your skin with 8 hours of mattifying effect. It also helps to refine the pores, preparing it for makeup or sunscreen application. I loved using this product because of the fact that it helped to control my oily T-zone that I'd get on a daily basis.

TRIED & TESTED: REFRESHING ROSE PETAL REPLENISHING SKINCARE RANGE BY HOLA


The new HOLA Rose Replenishing skincare range is infused with refreshing rose petals which helps to restore and revitalise the skin. 

The HOLA Rose Replenishing range are made in Australia and available online and in-stores. I looked to try out a few products from the range to see what they're all about because I am definitely all for rose scented skincare products. They smell refreshing and relaxing which really puts you into a relaxing mood. 

Check out my thoughts below x 


HOLA, Rose Replenishing Eye Cream, RRP $33 

This eye cream is super lightweight and oil-free which is perfect for those with normal to combination skin type. This eye cream looks to soften and smooth out the area under the eyes, leaving it feeling revitalised and replenished. This product definitely looks to reduce the puffiness around the eyes which is great for tired looking eyes. 


HOLD, Rose Replenishing Mask, RRP $40 

This mask is amazing for DIY facials as it just has that "luxury and spa feel" to it. It's infused with rose petals which means you get the benefits of having hydrated, brighter and smoother skin. With continued use, you can look to expect a glowing complexion. Simply pop the mask on after cleansing your face and look to relax for 10-15 minutes, then look to rinse off. 


HOLA, Rose Replenishing Water, RRP $37

The rose water by HOLA feels amazingly refreshing on the skin and it does a great job in moisturising the skin as well tightening the pores. Simply use a cotton pad to apply some of the rose water onto your face to feel more revitalised and awake.

GET THE PERFECT HAIR FOR THIS SUMMER FEATURING THE TRESemme PERFECTLY (UN) DONE COLLECTION


To get you ready for the holiday season, look to prep your hair with these much needed essentials by TRESemme, featuring their PERFECTLY (un) DONE Collection. 

Look to create natural waves with every wash for this festive season! Get your hair in shape with the latest selections from TRESemme's Perfectly (Un) Done collection

I've been using TRESemme for a while now and been loving how soft and nourished it has been leaving my hair feeling. It just looks to add a whole heap of body and shine to it which is great as I'm after healthier looking hair. 

Here are some products to get you started with creating the perfect base for natural waves: 




TRESemme's Perfectly (Un) done Shampoo & Conditioner, RRP $10.99 (750ml), $6.99 (390ml) 

If you're aiming for some body and texture, their Weightless range may be ideal for you. It doesn't contain any silicones which is ideal and I felt that it was an incredibly lightweight shampoo and conditioner to use for my hair and also for which it didn't weigh my hair down. For full body and shine of the hair, I've been really loving their Weightless range by TRESemme.  


TRESemme's Wave Creating Sea Foam, RRP $8.99 

For natural looking waves, I love to use the Wave Creating Sea Foam which is super easy to use. It looks to leave you with a soft finished look and the formula is infused with Sea Kelp extract. This is another lightweight product to use for the hair especially since it comes in a foam base - making it easier to apply it throughout the hair. 


TRESemme's Sea Salt Spray, RRP $8.99 

And if you're looking towards more texture for your beach eaves, the Sea Salt spray does a remarkable job in looking to leave your waves looking more defined and full bodied.

GET READY FOR THE FESTIVE PARTY SEASON WITH SOME AFFORDABLE BEAUTY ESSENTIALS BY MUD, ULTA3 & TBX


Look to get ready for the party season with some affordable beauty essentials by Ulta3, TBX, MUD Make Up Design and Billie Goat Soap. 

For some affordable beauty products for the Holiday Season, I looked to try out some newbies by TBX, Ulta3, Billie Goat Soap and MUD Make-up Design. If you're after a new Strobing Kit, the palette by Ulta3 and Elyse Knowles does the perfect job in looking to give you a natural glow for your overall look. Otherwise, to hear more about the newbies I've come across, be sure to check out the below... 


Billie Goat Soap, Hydrating Facial Serum, RRP $16.95 

The Hydrating Face Serum by Billie Goat Soap really has a pleasant scent to it which smells very botanical and fresh. This serum is rich on goat's milk and multivitamins which look to deeply penetrate the skin leaving you with a more hydrated complexion. If your skin appears dull or dry, simply apply this serum to the face and neck twice a day for the full hydration benefits. Furthermore, there are no nasties contained in this product which means it's safer to use in the longer run. 

Available at Priceline stores or Billie Goat Soap's official website here


TBX. The Beauty Exchange Brushes 

These brushes by TBX are actually magnetic which simply sticks to The TBX Plate from their collection. It's a nice way to store your brushes because they're convenient to grab whilst you're doing your makeup. Depending on which brush you're after, whether it's a Stippling Brush, Kabuki Brush or a Fan Highlighting Brush, there's a wide range to choose from. In terms of its bristles, it's quite soft to touch but it's not the softest I've tried out as yet. For the brush price range itself, it's super affordable and it also looks sleek. Simply pop all of the TBX brushes onto The TBX plate because they're magnetic! 

Available at Priceline stores or TBX's official website here. 


Ulta3 Perfect Your Glow Strobing Kit, RRP $14.95

The Perfect Your Glow Strobing Kit is perfect for all makeup beginners new to strobing and contouring. You don't have to break your budget in order to learn how to contour and highlight your face. This face palette comes with six shades with the option of Medium to Dark or Light to Medium. There are two cream highlighter shades, two powder highlighters and two blush powders. The cream highlighters act as solid bases for allowing your highlights to last longer. The price point on this palette is super affordable which retails for $14.95, and the overall look that you get from this palette is definitely natural looking. 

Also, the powders are finely milled and I'd say that they're my favourite from this palette. 

Available at Priceline or at Ulta3's official website here. 



MUD, Colour Correcting Concealer, RRP $8.00 

This Colour Correcting Concealer is actually made to conceal and neutralise any skin discolouration and uneven skin tone. I have tried other brands out there and I'd say that I did like the concealer part of this palette as it covered imperfections well for me. For the other green and purple shades, it didn't really help to reduce the dark circles that I had under my eyes, but the concealer worked well for me instead. 


Mud Makeup-design Lipstick in Pretty Please, RRP $5.00

For a lipstick that's $5, you'll be surprised to know that it's really moisturising and has a really creamy texture to it. In terms of long-wear, it does fade and smear easily as you drink and eat. So if you don't mind re-applying after drinking/eating, then this lipstick is for you. 

Available at Priceline or via MUD's official website here



Ulta3 Ready to Glow Primer, RRP $8.95 

This primer is enriched with illuminating pigments so that you get overall natural glow with your makeup. I've found no issues with using this primer underneath my foundation and concealer. If anything, I do love the illuminating elements that it has to its formula. For a natural and dewy glow, you definitely need to get your hands on the Ready to Glow Primer! 

Available at Priceline or via Ulta3's official website here.

TRYING OUT A NEW, POWERFUL MULTI-CORRECTIONAL FACE SERUM BY INTENSE FORMULAS


Intense Formulas have recently launched their very new Face Serum which is Australian made and cruelty free. 

I tried out the Face Serum by Intense Formulas which essentially is a multi-correctional serum for your skin, featuring 15 powerful ingredients. This serum absorbs really quickly on the skin leaving it feeling hydrated, revived and brightened. It helps to reduce the appearances of fine lines, dark spots, dryness as well as ageing.

My skin definitely felt more firm and supple after using this serum for about a week. For healthier and dewy looking skin, simply use in the morning and evening. 

Additionally, you can use this face serum as a primer before applying on your regular make-up. This will allow your overall complexion to look more glowing and radiant.
