Milk & Co recently launched their latest luxurious new body oil which features Papaya extract, Vitamin E, Lavender Oil and Soy Oil. 


I've been using the Body Oil by Milk and Co religiously, everyday and night. The blend is nicely scented which consists of the essential oils and plant extracts. With continued use of the body oil, it looks to leave your skin feeling smoother and softer, as well as locking in the hydration. The body oil is so perfect for winter as it can look to leave your skin feeling dry, dull, itchy or flaky. However, by simply applying on the body oil on a daily basis, it helps to protect your skin from environmental pollutants and UV radiation. 

Also, this is a super absorbent body oil which can be used for many purposes such as through pregnancy. If you have a growing belly, this body oil will definitely help with the prevention of stretch marks, cellulite and itchiness of the skin. 

After using this body oil for a few weeks now, I can definitely feel my skin becoming more hydrated, nourished and refreshed.

The Complete Firming Body Lotion is Enbacci's first all-over body product to be introduced into their skincare line of products....

I have been using this lotion on my body both morning and night. It's ideal for winter because it can leave our skin feeling dry and flaky. The lotion helps to nourish and hydrate the skin and you can easily see the results within a couple weeks of trying it out. 

Thanks to its amazing blend of ingredients such as Sunflower Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Lecithin and Soybean Oil. And not only that, the body lotion also contains its hero ingredient, Saponaria Pumila, which is a perennial plant of the alpine mountains. Research has shown that the stem cells extracted from this plant has the ability to protect skin from daily environmental challenges, whilst also helping to increase skin density, skin elasticity and skin firmness.

The body lotion works deep into the skin leaving it feeling very hydrated and soft. When used on a longer basis, you'll find that it helps to soften rough skin surfaces and can also help to prevent the signs of ageing. 

Benefits include: 
  • Hydration of the skin 
  • Promotes skin elasticity 
  • Promotes the appearance of skin firmness 

Overall, after a few weeks of trying out the Complete Body Firming Lotion, I've seen my skin to feel softer and more hydrated. This is essential for winter and dry conditions where my skin can suffer from dryness and cracked skin. So far, I'm loving the results of this lotion and with continued use, I can definitely expect my skin to feel nourished and healthy.

BIOLOGI - SINGLE INGREDIENT SKINCARE RANGE - TRIED AND TESTED



What's the secret to having perfect skin? 

Biologi skincare offers a range of serums which is extracted from a single plant such as a Finger Lime, Davidson Plum and Kakadu Plum. I looked to trial and test out three serums from the range being the Face Serum, Eye Serum and the Body Serum. 

From first glance, these products looked really simple, clean and modern. All of the serums are 100% active and water soluble which allows for fast and effective absorption of the skin. Furthermore, the Biologi skincare range are organic, vegan and cruelty free.

For more information, check out their official website here.


Biologi, Eye Serum (Rejuvenation) 15ml, RRP $79.95 

This is a very rejuvenating eye treatment containing a high level of Vitamin C. With continued use, it helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. So for those who don't use an eye serum on a daily basis and are considering to, then it might be worthwhile in the longer run. 

What I found from using the eye serum over the past few weeks, is that the lines and sun spots around my eye areas were slightly reduced. My skin felt very plump, healthy and stronger which tells me that the eye serum also helps to boost collagen to the skin. Furthermore, it leaves my skin feeling more luminous and brighter which is amazing for an eye serum. 


Biologi, Face Serum (Luminosity) 15ml, RRP $97.95

The face serum contains 100% Active Davidson Plum which is full of vitamins and antioxidants. This in effect leaves the skin looking fresh, radiant and luminous. This product has really changed my skincare routine for the better. I feel that there's better absorption of the product which is ideal for toning or moisturising afterwards. 

I have been using the face serum since Winter has started and I could really feel my skin feeling hydrated and plump. It's definitely a great face serum to opt for if you're looking for effective results. 


Biologi, Body Serum (Hydration) 50ml, RRP $64.95

The body serum contains a blend of fruit acids and Vitamin C which hydrates and softens the skin. It helps with toning of the skin (collagen production), skin elasticity, cellulite, bumps and even flaking of the skin. Amazingly, after applying on the body serum, my skin feels so soft and supple. It's perfect for winter as I don't get dry patches anymore all thanks to the body serum. The product is not too oily or greasy which is wonderful as it doesn't leave you with any marks on clothes.

LOOK TO ENHANCE CLEAVAGE & LIFT WITH THE NEW LINE OF UPBRA'S RANGE OF BRAS - HANDMADE IN CALIFORNIA


Upbra has spent almost 5 years developing their perfect line of adjustable lift-up and cleavage bras, here are my thoughts on trying on their strapless bra...

I am always on the lookout for comfortable and cleavage enhancing bras which is why Upbra has definitely won my vote for being amazing for some lifting cleavage action. Upbra uses their new ActiveLift® technology which allows for better and more cleavage to small cup sizes and more lift to women with larger cup sizes. 

After wearing their Upbra Miraculous Stay-up Strapless Bra, I've found that it felt and looked very natural with the extra lift that it offers. The Stay-Up Strapless Upbra has a specifically formulated vinyl grip that will stay on all day and night. It doesn't have that stiff/hard feeling which is absolutely amazing. Compared to other strapless bras I've tried in the past, the Miraculous Stay-up bra actually 'stays' on all day long. It doesn't budge or slip down which is definitely an important factor for me when it comes to choosing the right strapless bra. Because let's be honest...it's not always comfortable having to lift up your strapless bra during a night out!  Also added with the bra is a set of straps which can be worn in many different ways. 

The Upbra range is available online via their official website here, where you can check out more styles and colour.
