Spring Facial Hair Remover Wand Tool

Peach fuzz should be exclusive to peaches. Unfortunately that isn’t the case for me, I have that annoying fine, blonde hair (officially known as vellus hair) covering my body like most humans but luckily we no longer need to keep it. I have found a cheap, quick and easy method for removing my fine facial hair, I’m just mad I didn’t find it sooner.

If you have tried threading you’ll understand this concept easily. It’s the same thing but requires no coordination skills. It’s what I would call an easier alternative to threading with the same results. Let me tell you why EVERYONE should have a Facial Hair Remover Wand. Continue Reading

NYFW Beauty Products

You saw what I took in my beauty bag to New York Fashion Week but what about my makeup bag? Picking which makeup I take away with me is definitely the hardest task I have to face when travelling. It would be like choosing which one of your kids gets to travel with you, except the criteria I look at for my choices comes down to versatility, reliability and proven success at making me look good. Rarely will I take a makeup product that I’ve never used before because I don’t have the room to take more than one of each item …. except for lipstick of course. And eyeshadows. And lashes.

As I did with my beauty bag, I try to take miniature and deluxe sized samples where possible and palettes for items where I need a choice of a few colours, excluding lipsticks because I usually need to carry the lipstick around with me all day for touch-ups.

Without further ado, here’s the makeup that landed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Foreo Luna Mini Device

It only occurred to me recently that despite my numerous mentions of Foreo’s Luna devices, I hadn’t actually shared a full review. Bad blogger! After nearly a year on sale internationally, the Foreo Luna face cleansing tools finally went on sale in Australia this past March. They launched with the Luna and the Luna Mini, the latter of which I’m reviewing for you.

I chop and change which face cleansing tools I use but in the electric devices category I’ve always loved the Clarisonic. To be fair, it was a genius innovation for its time but now there is competition in the sonic face cleansing market. Can Foreo convert me to the dark side? Read on to find out. Continue Reading

Tria 4x Hair Laser

When I recently shared my beauty haul from the USA a great number of you expressed interest in a review of the Tria 4X Laser Hair Removal device. I was so excited to get my hands on this item that I vowed a review would be guaranteed. Unfortunately I now have to tell you otherwise. I will not be able to review the Tria laser due to a series of unfortunate events. Those events include a shoddy product, clueless customer service staff and panic-attack causing frustration.

Let me tell you the story and why I will not be attempting this product again in the near future.  Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
