Skincare Application Video Tutorial

Learning how to apply your skincare products is an important part of looking after yourself. Not all products should be applied in the same way and unless you were instructed on how to apply the products you’re using, you may actually be assisting your skin to form lines or lose elasticity at a faster rate. This is why I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how to apply skincare products.   Continue Reading

NYFW Beauty Products

I love travelling but for me the worst part is packing (and unpacking, to be honest). I’ve given you a few tips about packing previously but what on earth does a girl pack for New York Fashion Week? It’s a week of post-summer warm weather in a humid city, running around all parts of town, and glitzy fashionistas at swinging soirees. My beauty bag has to carry everything I need to survive the week and even after all these years of attending Australian Fashion Week I still have no idea what to pack until the very last minute.

I try to take miniatures of all my beauty products where possible and I try to avoid sachets or little packets, where possible. I recommend collating deluxe samples when they’re available as gift with purchase offers or as perks from your favourite beauty store (Sephora, I’m looking at you!). These are the beauty products that accompanied me to NYFW 2014.

Best new beauty product launches

Eeeek, is that really the date already? I know August is well and truly over but I can’t pass up sharing my favourites for the month. As for the delay in posting it, well, I blame New York Fashion Week. You’ll soon see why that took up so much of my time.

It was a somewhat slow month for new launches, with only 28 new products gracing my desk, but nearly all of them grabbed my attention and many of them will be fronting some big advertising campaigns over the coming months. I’m sure this won’t be the first nor last you see of them Continue Reading

Natio Renew Line and Wrinkle Serum

When I review a skincare product I like to team it with another product from the same line for at least half of the trial, when possible. I did this recently when I reviewed Natio’s Renew Line & Wrinkle Gentle Toning Facial Cleanser. A couple weeks after commencing use of the face wash I started using this serum from the Renew Line & Wrinkle line. The Smoothing Serum is said to help minimize the appearance of fine lines while repairing surface damage. While I may not have any notable lines or wrinkles yet, I am noticing the first signs of ageing and I want to do anything I can to put it off.

Did this serum help address my dehydrated skin and keep it looking youthful? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading
