Best new beauty products Dec 2013

As 2013 comes to a close we are squeezing in one last month of new beauty launches that gained our interest. December is often a slow month for new launches as the focus turns to holiday gifting and repromoting of earlier releases, and this year was no different. Nevertheless, there were still a number of standout beauty products that got me salivating this month.

Take a look at our top new beauty buys and let us know what took your fancy this month. Continue Reading

It is never too early to care for your skin, and I mean never. Many people usually wait until they have something they don’t like about their skin before looking for something to solve their problem, but like most things in life prevention is usually the best solution. The new Anew Aqua Youth line from Avon works follows that manta.

Targeted at consumers in their 20’s, Anew Aqua Youth is designed to keep facial skin fit and healthy. The line was included as one of my favourite new beauty products to launch in October, and today I am reviewing the face cleanser for you.  Continue Reading

It is Halloween month and my most favourite time of the year to see spooky makeup looks and ghoulish nails. Other than Halloween though, the beauty front will be a little quiet for new launches this October. There were just over 50 products keeping me busy to consider for my monthly favourites but I got through them and I have come up with these top picks.

Don’t forget to tell me what has taken your fancy this month! Continue Reading

Over the last couple of months three brands have released brand new skincare products that could literally change the face of skincare. As I am such a lover of good skin, I wanted to share with you these new products so you can stay up to date on the latest developments.

If there is one industry that is constantly improving itself, it is skincare. A staggering amount of research and development goes into creating a skincare product, and not just new ones, even ones that have been on the market for years. Finding better ingredients and new delivery methods seems to be the one thing skincare scientists concentrate on the most. In my opinion, La Prairie, Avon and Skin Doctors should be very proud of their new developments.

Let’s take a closer look.

La Prairie – Cellular Power Infusion

One brand that will never cease to amaze me is La Prairie. Every single one of their products I have tried have made me fall head over heals in love. The new serum set is the first release in what will be a new category for La Prairie, Continue Reading

Best Beauty Advent Calendars

Picking the best beauty advent calendar for yourself each year is tough, I totally get it. This year the choices are even bigger and better so I’ve rounded up the best beauty advent calendars for you to choose from. Past favourites like The Body Shop, Look Fantastic and NYX Cosmetics are back with their beauty advent calendars, plus some new ones to spice things up.

Unfortunately, many sell out the minute they are released and by the time you see them touted by your favourite Instgrammers you’ve already missed out. Don’t worry though, there are still heaps around that you’ll love. Treat yo’self, ladies!  Continue Reading

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
