Supergoop Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum

Sunscreen is my desert island beauty product. There is no way I will go anywhere or do anything without it. I fell in love with Supergoop when I tried a sample of their Save Face moisturizer but upon seeing the anti-aging City Sunscreen Serum I thought that may be more suited to my aging skin so I picked it up along with a bunch of other Supergoop products during my recent USA beauty haul. Will this one stack up to my original love? My review below has the answer. Continue Reading

Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Facial Firming Serum

You may know Philosophy for their yummy shower gels, cute product names and inspirational messages, but don’t confuse them for a company that has token skincare products with no results. Behind the beautiful messaging of the products sits hard working skincare goods. If you are looking to try a new skincare brand or range, I always think a serum is a good place to start. A serum is usually the most hard working product in a line so if you find a serum works for you chances are the other products won’t be too bad either.

When Hope Is Not Enough forms part of the “Hope” line, which is one of the many skincare ranges in Philosophy’s collection. My review today is of the Facial Firming Serum. Read on to see what this product did and didn’t do for me. Continue Reading

How To Make Your Skincare Work Overtime

If you care about your looks or worry about ageing, even the slightest amount, you should be using skincare products. Everyone has different concerns, needs and preferences but the one common factor for us all is that there are skincare products designed to help us. The unfortunate part is that even if you are using a skincare product that aligns with all your important factors, the product still may not necessarily work for you or you may just stop seeing results after continued use. This doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the skincare product per se, but it could be how your skin is receiving it that is giving you less than ideal results. The good news is that there are lots of things you can do to give your skincare regime a kick up the butt and get it working overtime, and I am going to show you how.  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
