Posts in NeoStrata

For the most part, facial cleansers are kind of the ‘easy’ skincare product to buy. As long as you don’t have an allergic reaction, have a scent you find offensive or make you even more oily/dry than usual, than you can’t go too wrong. Having said that, finding a facial cleanser that does more than remove dirt is far and few between. When I tried this NeoStrata cleanser, I thought it would just be another cleanser with nothing to write home about. I was wrong.

Female hand holding colorful shopping bags

With the Australian dollar being so strong at the moment, you may be finding it difficult to resist the temptation to jump on an LA bound flight to stock up on your beauty faves. The fact I live near Sydney Airport is especially difficult because if it wasn’t for the electric fence I would jump over and stow myself neatly in an over head compartment when no one was looking. Desperate much?

Well thankfully I don’t have to this week because I am heading to Las Vegas for a Blogging conference. Yes, they actually have a conference for that!

So what do you do if you can’t quickly make up some job related hoopla to get yourself over there? Order online! The Aussie dollar is almost on par with the USA, the pound is at an astounding 60 pence or more, and then there is the Canadian dollar that we are a mere .002 cents off equal. It is crazy times and god knows it might not last for long.

My advice is to take advantage while you can. Be adventurous, and if you have never tried online shopping, now is the time! Unfortunately there are still many sites that don’t offer shipping to Australia and it is a huge loss for them (*cough* Sephora), so let’s focus on the sites that do recognise our fine country as a profitable market.  Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
