Desert Island Beauty Packing List

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve been asked what my desert island beauty picks would be. My answer is always sunscreen. Hands down, it’s the most important because without it we would burn to a crisp, dehydrate and die. But what if you knew you were going to a deserted island for 4 days, with 3 of your friends, a heap of beer and delicious meals? What beauty supplies would you need then? Well, that’s the exact situation I faced when I jetted off to XXXX Island in Queensland.

As a guest of my friend, Helen of SASSYBELLA.com, I was challenged to live the good life for a few days on the XXXX private island along with our friends Sophia of Moulin Frock and Nicole of Confidant Liar. So what the heck do I pack? The battle between the lazy Kimmi and the prepare-for-any-situation Kimmi fought it out to come up with the perfect beauty pack list. These are the crucial items I packed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Best new beauty products october 2014

October. It came, and now it’s practically gone. We still have Halloween to celebrate and it will kick off what is officially known as the madness of holiday season. Are you ready for it? Do you have everything you need? Do you have everything you want? NEVER, we know there is always new things to need and want, that’s why I do this round-up of brilliant new products each month.

Over 70 products new to launch in October landed on my desk and it was a tough gig picking my favourites, as it is every month. Surprisingly it was the Body category that had the most newbies but I guess this is expected as the temperature warms up in Australia and we start to bare our skin. Which were the most exciting of them all? I reveal them to you now. Continue Reading

Reef After Sun Repair Gel 150ml

Now that it’s warming up in the Southern Hemisphere you just know that a barrage of sunscreen and sun safety articles will be heading your way. Before I get into my heavy posting of sun protection loves, I’m going to give you a review of another essential summertime beauty product – the after sun gel. This review is about Reef’s After Sun Repair Gel but you probably know Reef for their sun tanning oils more than you would for anything else. The fact is that what you apply to your skin AFTER sun exposure is just as important as what you use during it.

Will this repair gel give you the necessary cooling, healing and hydrating powers? Let’s find out!  Continue Reading

Sunscreen For Summer Travel

Possibly the one thing that was easy for me to pack for my trip to Bali was sunscreen. I love sunscreen and I use it everyday but going for an island getaway where I know there will be activities such as swimming means I have to factor in more protection than required when I am sitting in my office each day. I took that as my license to bring multiples.

Here are the sunscreens accompanying me on my holiday. Surely half a dozen will cover it?  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
