Best New Beauty October blog post

You’d think October would be exclusively reserved for Halloween themed beauty but nope, Christmas is wiggling its way in. The best new beauty October products are mostly dominated with Holiday collections but I’ve tried sticking to just the solo new products that really thrilled me. I will be posting separate gift guides a little later on for all those cool Holiday collections.

For now, discover the best of the best with my Best New Beauty October round-up. Continue Reading

Bioderma Atoderm Nourishing Cream

Dry skin needs a lot of extra TLC in my opinion. If you want smooth, healthy skin you have to fight to keep it hydrated, especially in summer. Internal and external sources of hydration are important to all skin types but extra dry skin can take a little more work to keep the thirst quenched. My dry skin is pretty tough and can get through most conditions relatively unharmed but in summer my legs can get so dry they reveal scales.

I need a body lotion that will hydrate my dry skin but is gentle enough on irritations as well as being highly effective to work fast and help my skin build a stronger barrier. Bioderma’s Atoderm range is specifically designed for dry and very dry skin. Having had success with the body wash, I wanted to try the lotion. Here are my findings.   Continue Reading

Best new beauty products of December 2014

December may be the busiest month of activity in almost every respect but when it comes to new beauty launches there is very little going on. The opening of Sephora Australia was definitely the biggest beauty launch on my calendar but in other news there have been very few new beauty products hitting shelves this month.

Nevertheless, there were still lots of goodies to make my monthly task difficult. I’ve culled through over 20 new launches to show you my top picks. Continue Reading

Beauty Gift Guide for Beginners

When I was a teenager I was very curious about makeup and beauty products, and I was extremely lucky that I had a mother who never stopped me from exploring that interest. My mother wasn’t a major consumer of beauty products but she owned makeup and I had seen her use it, and she went to the beautician every now and then but to me it was like a foreign world that I longed to explore. My mother would let me buy little makeup kits or palettes every now and then, or she would buy me them as a treat, and thinking of this memory it hit me that they were some of the best gifts I had ever received.

I’ve posted a number of Beauty gift guides over the past few weeks but this one I’m dedicating to the girls and women who are just toeing with their interest in beauty. Whether it be you or someone you know, someone aged 8 or 48 … there comes a time for most women when that interest is sparked, and when nurtured and allowed to run free it can grow to become something wonderful. As I’ve always believed, beauty products aren’t a selfish commodity, they are a tool of creativity, of art and of self-expression. Continue Reading

Natural Instinct Body Lotion review

A good body lotion is as important in fighting aging as a sunscreen. Ok, that’s kind of a lie, nothing is more important than sunscreen but dehydrated skin does rapidly speed up aging so body lotion is quite important. If you’re anything like me than you’re probably super picky about body lotion – the smell, the texture, the level of hydration – it’s nearly impossible to find the right balance. Then there’s the ingredients, of which I try to avoid nasties because it’s being applied to my largest organ (yep, skin is your largest organ!). I hoped Natural Instinct’s Body Lotion would be my answer ….. but is it? My review has the answers.  Continue Reading
