The Ameliorate skincare range is designed for those with the skin condition, Keratosis Pilaris. 

The benefits of using their products is that it helps to hydrate dry skin, prevent ingrown hairs and makes normal skin feel absolutely soft and smooth. If you're after healthier looking skin, then definitely look no further. 

Keratosis Pilaris is also known as having 'chicken skin' where it's totally harmless and causes small, hard bumps which can make your skin feel rough. With the right products you can bring your skin on track in hopes of helping it feel and look healthier once again. As we head into the cooler season, we will notice how harsh and dry it can leave our skin feeling. 

Here are some top picks from Ameliorate which can help to relieve dry skin: 

Softening Bath Milk Oil 

Skin is left feeling moisturised and well replenished thanks to the Softening Bath Milk Oil by Ameliorate. It contains soothing colloidal oats which is ideal for creating a milky and  comfortable formula which looks to hydrate and soften the skin. For a lightweight product that absorbs easily onto the skin, this is the perfect bath milk oil to opt for. 

Nourishing Body Wash 

The Nourishing Body Wash by Ameliorate looks to gently cleanse without drying or irritating the skin. It has actually been proven to moisturise the skin for up to 8 hours which is a must for the cooler and dry weather season. 

The body wash comes soap-free, pH balanced and contains the unique LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex which cleanses, softens and moisturises the skin. Furthermore, it feels creamy and lathers really nicely on the skin. 

Transforming Body Lotion 

For an everyday transforming body lotion which feels incredibly lightweight and is designed for Keratosis Pilaris that both exfoliates and moisturises the skin, the Transforming Body Lotion is my favourite. It helps to smooth away any bumps and protects the skin for up 24 hours. Skin feels well moisturised and hydrated.

Maintain healthier looking skin and control acne with the Azclear range... 

For those who are looking to reduce and control acne/blemishes on the skin, Azclear Action offers a range of products that looks to solve that problem. It's an affordable acne-prone skincare range that's made available at major pharmacies including Chemist Warehouse in-stores and online. Recently, I revamped my skincare products around to incorporate three new products from their range including their Foaming Wash, Day Moisturiser (with SPF 30+) and Soothing Gel (with Avemide 15 & Vitamin B3). All of these products are designed to help with maintaining your skin and most importantly they're effective and non-comedogenic. 

Their Foaming Wash is a super gentle product and is best used for those with pimples and acne. As it is foam based, it lathers really nicely on the skin and is formulated to reduce acne. The Day Moisturiser (which comes with SPF 30) is a great day to day product as it helps to reduce redness and improves your skin's hydration. 

What I love about this moisturiser is that it's very lightweight and is not too oily on the skin. (It's non-comedogenic too). And last but not least I tried out their Soothing Lotion which is perfect for maintaining the hydration levels on your skin. It reduces any discomfort and irritation on the skin and it doesn't contain any fragrances, colours, etc. It comes in the form of a pump sized bottle which makes it hygienic and easy to use.

Now there's no excuse for your man to steal your skincare products... 
Essano (New Zealand's No.1 natural skincare brand) have finally introduced a line made especially for men, featuring 'Man'... a simple skincare range which helps to reduce irritation while improving the skin's overall appearance. This is perfect for all the men out there wanting to achieve glowing and fresh looking skin. 

Man by Essano was developed when Shane Young (Essano's co-founder) was suffering from irritated skin realised that the market needed to offer more gentle and natural products made suitable for sensitive skin. It is true that there are so many products that can prove to be harsh and strong on the skin. Man by Essano contains high quality natural ingredients which help to condition and calm the skin including Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Tasmania Pepperberry and Ginger extract. Hello good looking skin! 

Some products made available from their range includes their Everyday Moisturiser, SPF15 Moisturiser, Anti-Irritation Face Scrub and the Sensitive Face Wash. 

essano MAN is now available from Woolworths and Priceline worldwide.

For those after some moisturising, anti-ageing and plumping action... 

So for those after all of the above effects for the skin, mesoestetic Pharma Group have launched their latest 'ha densimatrix' which is essentially a concentrate based on hyaluronic acid. This key ingredient helps to fight the signs of ageing and looks to leave your skin feeling well moisturised and hydrated. It's definitely ideal for those after some moisturising effects especially during winter as the hyaluronic acid helps to prolong these effects. 

The serum comes in a water-like gel texture and it's not oily at all. Simply use 3-4 drops over clean and dry skin and massage this all over your face. You will instantly feel the effects of the product absorbing into the skin. I tend to use my facial serums at night because as we sleep, that is when our skin cells regenerate which means the product will absorb better. 

So if you are looking to achieve plump, moisturised and youthful looking skin, definitely have a feel for the ha densimatrix serum. 

The ha densimatrix by mesoestetic, RRP $129 for 30ml, available via https://www.advancedcosmeceuticals.com.au/

  • Reduce the appearance of your pores thanks to cell renewal, 
  • Reduce the signs of skin discolouration thanks to a brightening technology which interrupts unwanted melanin production,

  • ageLOC ® Future Serum - looks to target the signs of ageing. 
  • ageLOC® Radiant Day with Sunscreen - super lightweight and made for everyday.

It does retail for a higher price as it contains comprehensive skincare products that are potent and super effective on the skin. It's a kit aimed for those looking to target ageing skin and I can most definitely say that it does work to some degree. I've already observed my skin becoming more supple, soft and youthful looking.

Bellababy is a monthly subscription box containing an assortment of random beauty and baby products, perfect for all new mothers and mothers to be. 

The idea around the Bellababy box is that you get to try out new brands and products that are baby and mother related. For instance in this month's Bellababy box, there are products I've yet to try. This is perfect for sampling new brands and products before purchasing the full sized products at the supermarket. To get started with the Bellababy box subscription, simply head over here to join in all the fun. 

For this month's Bellababy box, I was quite intrigued with the selection of products which includes the following: 
  • Plunkett's Vita E Intensive Vitamin E Ointment (Full size) - This is perfect for smoothing over dry, irritated and damaged skin. I love how it's infused with rosehip oil which provides a great level hydration and moisture for the skin. 
  • Cleanears Wax Removal Spray For Kids (Full size) - I didn't even know this product existed until I received one in this month's Bellababy box. I've tried it on my little one and so far I think it does the job in helping to dissolve any ear wax.
  • Mater Baby Nappy (Crawler and sample size) - I do know that these are of high quality nappies so I definitely was impressed with having a sample in the box. 
  • Little Bellies Snack (Sample size) - My little one will be having solids within the next few months and I'm excited to introduce this snack to him once the time comes.
  • Mustela Gentle Cleansing Gel (Sample size) - I tried this on my little one last night and so far there wasn't any irritations on his skin which is amazing. I will be most likely purchasing a full sized product now that I know that it works for him. 
  • La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 (Sample size) - I love the products by La Roche Posay so I was happy to find this well known staple in the box. This product helps to heal minor skin irritations such as rashes, eczema, cracks and cuts that little ones may experience during their infant and toddler years, Not only can it be used for infants but adults also. 
  • Wotnot Facial Wipes Pocket Pack (Sample Size) - These are great for refreshing your skin or removing makeup. It uses 100% biodegradable cloths which is better for the environment. 
  • Modelco Luxe Creme Long Wear Lipstick - Truly a nice addition for all the Mums out there, especially when you are caring for a little one all day long. This is a creamy, buildable and highly pigmented lipstick which adds some colour to the lips.

Perfect for new mums, you can check out more information about the Bellababy box here

It's Autumn and what better way to show off which haircare products I am loving... 

Custom Create Colour Lustre Oil 

Hair oils are perfect for those with colour damaged or dry brittle hair. This Custom Create Colour Lustre Oil works amazingly well especially if your ends are super dry and frizzy (just like mine) and your hair will feel smooth and conditioned after the treatment. Furthermore, this product even protects your hair from UV damage so bonus points for that. This product is blended with coconut oil which just smells so blissful and adds that extra shine for your roots and ends. 

Volume Lift Styling Spray 

This Volume Lift Styling Spray comes in the form of mousse which is easy to work with especially if you have fine hair. You can look to amplify the volume with this spray by looking to spray in your roots and working up some body by simply using your hands or brush. 

Heat Protection Spray 

I can't get enough of this heat protection spray as it's made to penetrate, condition and soften the hair. It's perfect for preventing further damage from heat styling tools and I've been using this product religiously. The oil is actually organically sourced which means that you reap all of the high quality ingredients from this product.

Supercharged skin, yes please.... 

If you're looking to fight ageing skin, then you definitely need to evaluate which products work best for your skin. 

For a youthful glow I have been putting the Retinol 10TR+ Intense, Supercharged 1% Vitamin A Serum by Medik8 to the test. It's definitely a potent and advanced serum and it's perfect for those showing signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, etc.. 

Furthermore it acts as a super lightweight serum which absorbs easily on the skin. It does not feel heavy or oily which is great as you will be having this serum on your skin overnight. It's designed to complement your skin's nightly regenerative cycle as you sleep which is perfect because as you wake up, you'll start to notice a more supple and glowing appearance in your skin. 

Not only does this serum works to fight the signs of ageing but it also really helps to improve your skin's texture, balance out uneven skin tone, decongest the pores and giving them a minimised look in their size. It's definitely a strong serum that really looks to show results within a week especially focusing on ageing of the skin. With continued use, you can expect glowing and healthier looking skin.
