Posts in Annie Ford Danielson

By now I am sure you have all heard the whispers and maybe even seen some reviews of the new, and first ever, Benefit skincare range b.right! Radiant Skincare. Well today it goes on sale in Australia, so that means you can actually head into a retailer near you and try/buy the products you have heard about.

If you have heard nothing about this new line than you are in the right place because today I am going to share with you my thoughts on two of the products. My intentions are however to give more of the products a try so there will be more reviews of this range coming soon-ish.

Why A Skincare Line?

First things first, what is this line about? So after decades of creating amazing cosmetics and some noteworthy ‘skincare’ items (such as You Rebel, a tinted moisturiser with SPF) the brainy whiz kids currently at the Benefit helm, Maggie & Annie Ford Danielson, decided it was time to give their customers what they have been asking for. A skincare line that looks after our skin and works just as well when used in combination with make-up (something a lot of skincare doesn’t do).

Most of you may not be aware that Benefit is owned by Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton (aka LVMH). The parent company owns many brands, including other beauty companies such as Dior, so this has allowed Maggie & Annie a chance to access some of the best the world has to offer when it comes to skincare.

The Range

The debut skincare line is quite large, in my opinion. I love the packing and think Benefit have NAILED it. The caps look like corks and the heavy glass jars look great to display. This is a collection I would be happy to have on show.

Without further a due, here is the range:

  • Foamingly Clean Facial Wash – AU $38 / US $21
  • Refined Finish Facial Polish – AU $40 / US $22 / UK £17.50
  • Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ – AU $45 / US $28 / UK £19.50
  • Total Moisture Face Cream – AU $59 / US $38 / UK £26.50
  • It’s Potent! Eye Cream – AU $58 / US $32 / UK £23.50
  • Moisture Prep Toning Lotion – AU $49 / US $29
  • Remove It Make Up Remover – AU $38 / US $21 / UK £16.50
  • Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist – AU $47 / US $26 / UK £19.50
All fields look to be covered, but the one thing I am finding conflicting Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
