INTRODUCING OLAY WHIPS - JESINTA FRANKLIN BRAND AMBASSADOR - JUST LANDED & EXCLUSIVE TO PRICELINE


All aboard the #Olaywhipsau boat... 


If you guys haven't heard yet...Olay have launched their latest face moisturiser range featuring Olay Whips. As soon as I got to experience the product, I just knew that I had to spread the love about it. It's called 'Whip' for a reason and that's because it absorbs instantly and it's so lightweight on skin. I literally tested it on my hands and amazingly there were no signs of greasiness or oiliness. It felt like I was wearing nothing on my skin which is essentially what I want in a moisturiser as I have oily to combination skin. I love the fact that it's nowhere as near sticky which is a must when it comes to wearing a daily moisturiser. 

You can choose to wear this moisturiser alone or under your makeup for extra hydration and moisture. Most importantly, the moisturiser focuses on delivering powerful wrinkle results which is perfect for those who want to reduce the effects of ageing. 

So how the facial moisturiser works is that transforms from cream to liquid upon skin contact so that it instantly absorbs and leaves you with a lightweight feel. I can literally wear this on my skin on a daily basis and not worry without my T-zones becoming oily throughout the day. This facial moisturiser is simply amazing thanks to its advanced Amino-Peptide Complex II and innovative Active Rush Technology. 

Overall, I've been using this moisturiser every single day and I love how matte and non-oily it leaves my skin feeling. For a lightweight moisturiser which feels like you're wearing nothing, I would 100% recommend the Olay Whips range. 

Just landed and exclusive to Priceline, you can look to purchase your Olay Whips here

PRODUCT REVIEW: ELECTRIC BOTTLE WARMER, STERILISER 2 IN 1 BY EONIAN CARE




For all the mothers out there shopping for an electric bottle warmer and steriliser (2-in-1)... 

Recently I tried and tested out the latest Electric Bottle Warmer and Steriliser by Eonian Care, which literally makes bottle feeding so much easier and efficient. With the touch of a simple button, you can easily look to warm up your bottles and sterilise them within ten minutes (The dials are easily adjustable if you don't want to wait for the whole ten minutes - simply adjust by touching the minus or plus sign button...)

The product focuses on safety first as it's BPA free PP material which gives you a peace of mind. What I love about this device is that it automatically switches off when it dries up. You can use this for either warming milk bottles or baby food too - all within an efficient time. It takes 10 minutes to sterilise the bottles, 3 minutes to defrost and it has a 24-hour warming system (which keeps your bottles warmed to the perfect 37 degrees. The open-designed steriliser itself holds about 4 bottles in total including the teats, rims, etc. It kills 99.9% of bacteria without using any harsh chemicals. Most importantly, it comes with a LED digital display making it easy for you to view the times for sterilising and heating up your bottles. It definitely gives you a high-tech digital feel to it which is amazing for a steriliser and warmer. 

When it comes to warming up milk, there's no need to boil the kettle. I love how easy and efficient it is for me to now warm up milk with using this device. With the touch of a simple button, it does a solid job in keeping the milk warm even after heating it up. This is perfect for top-up feeds and fussy babies who love to drink their milk warm. Furthermore, it's even useful to warm up baby food which will definitely come in handy for me in the next few months. 

As for its exterior and overall design, it's aesthetically pleasing and it comes in my favourite shade - coral pink. I would love to see this range to come in more colours such as grey, black or white. 

Overall, I'm loving the 2-in-1 Bottle Warmer and Steriliser by Eonian Care. I'm so glad that I stumbled across this brand because now bottle feeds have become so much easier with the bub. I can easily sterilise and warm up the bottles without the hassle of using the kettle or microwave.

Pick your perfect pout... 

For natural looking lip tints, Bobbi Brown have released three new shades to their Extra Lip Tint Collection, RRP $54. Pictured above features their newest shade in Bare Raspberry, which is this luscious rosy, berry shade. It looks very natural on the lips and essentially works with the natural lip tone to enhance a rosy tint shade. Furthermore if you're after a subtle look for the lips, then you may love this range. 

These are super lightweight, sheer and incredibly nourishing for the lips. It's the perfect pick-me-up lip balm for everyday as it adds a little tinge of colour for the lips. What I mostly love about the Extra Lip Tints is that they easily blend in with your natural lip colour which is amazing. There's no sticky feeling with these lip tints and I have been using it as an everyday lip balm, with the added bonus of the lip tint colour which I love.

Pop some coconut oil onto the skin when you're at the beach as it helps to prevent further premature ageing of the skin.

The Rose Body Oil is a silky, smooth oil which works to rejuvenate and relax the skin at the same time. It's very calming thanks to lavender and chamomile extracts from the product which is perfect for winding down at home. If you're looking for a body oil which helps to re-balance your skin's natural oils, then this is the product for you.

Featuring a highly concentrated water essence for the skin, it includes Marshmallow Root which works to deeply hydrate the skin, whilst improving its ability to retain moisture. After using the Activating Water Essence by Jurlique, my skin felt more supple, soft and smoother. It does a really nice job to boost hydration levels for my skin and I'm incredibly amazed at the benefits of using this product on a daily basis. You can look to follow through with your moisturiser and serum after using the Activating Water Essence for an enhanced performance for the skin.
