The Beautylish Lucky Bag is a wonderful annual tradition produced by global online beauty retailer Beautylish. You may have heard the hype on Instagram and from your favourite influencers about the Beautylish Lucky Bag, an annual ‘lucky dip’ of sorts that allows you to pay a once-off price to get a mystery delivery of beauty products in value well exceeding the price you pay. It’s what I call Gambling for Beauty Addicts. It’s taken me until 2017 to try it because I’m not much of a gambler. I unboxed the contents of my Lucky Bag live on Instagram (make sure you are following me to see every unboxing as they happen!) but if you missed it you are in luck because I will reveal to you what I got in mine, and my review of the entire Beautylish #LuckyBag2017 experience.

Peach fuzz should be exclusive to peaches. Unfortunately that isn’t the case for me, I have that annoying fine, blonde hair (officially known as vellus hair) covering my body like most humans but luckily we no longer need to keep it. I have found a cheap, quick and easy method for removing my fine facial hair, I’m just mad I didn’t find it sooner.
If you have tried threading you’ll understand this concept easily. It’s the same thing but requires no coordination skills. It’s what I would call an easier alternative to threading with the same results. Let me tell you why EVERYONE should have a Facial Hair Remover Wand. Continue Reading
One of my long-time favourite Australian brands is Face of Australia. I’ve been using their products for years and they used to be a strong, reliable producer of certified cruelty-free cosmetic products. However, things have changed dramatically in the past couple years and it has saddened me. They ditched the cruelty-free certification (which makes their status a mystery as you are purely taking them on their word), promotion of new releases has been silent and their website is in desperate need of a makeover. Despite my own little pet peeves I feel going on, I can’t help but been drawn to their products when I do see them. For that reason, I will continue to review their cosmetics for now.
One of their more recent releases were an updated line of Tinted Moisturisers, now with SPF50+ as opposed to their earlier SPF30+ product. I’m not keen on tinted moisturisers generally because the tints are usually too dark for my skin or they appear muddy. I wanted to try the Face of Australia Tinted Moisturiser anyway as the appeal of an SPF50 was strong for me. Would this one be any different? Could this be the tinted moisturiser game changer?

For most women you will have never heard the word “vaginismus”. That little fact alone makes me feel sad and a little angry. When it comes to male anatomy and sexual dysfunction it would seem there is no shortage of information, education and knowledge but for females it’s rather absent. When sexual education was part of my schooling I felt uneducated. As a teenager, I wasn’t going to voice my concerns or embarrass myself by saying that there were things I still didn’t understand about sex so I relied on magazines, the internet (which was VERY limited in knowledge 15+ years ago) and TV/Movies to fill in the blanks. Funnily enough, none of those resources talked about female sexual dysfunction, especially Vaginismus …. and they still don’t. You could very well have this condition and not even know it. I believe this HAS to change if we want to raise a generation of well-informed girls and women who don’t fear their own body.
This condition isn’t just about sex though, it can even restrict which the ability to use tampons and have a pelvic examination. I’ve called on sexologist and all-round sex-pert, Chantelle Otten, to educate us with the must-know facts about Vaginismus. Continue Reading
Whether it’s warm or cold weather it doesn’t matter much to my hair lately – it’s always thirsty! Maybe it’s an age thing, maybe it’s an Australian weather thing – whatever the reason doesn’t matter because I need hydration and one of the easiest ways to get it in my hair is with a hydrating shampoo/conditioner combo I can use daily.
I’ve wanted to try the Moroccanoil Hydrating shampoo and conditioner for quite some time after having a good experience with the Moroccanoil Extra Volume range. I was still skeptical about how the Hydration range would work for me, as I previously have mentioned the hero product of Moroccanoil has yet to impress me, but I still wanted to give them a shot. My review shares if these products worked on my fine, dry hair. Continue Reading
