NIVEA Sensitive Protect Deodorant Aerosol

Every time I review a NIVEA deodorant it always seems to be the same story. The last one I tried was Pearl & Beauty which I had high hopes for but in the end it didn’t tick all the boxes. The problem is that the NIVEA deodorants never seem to actually stop me from producing sweat, but each time they come out with a new one I get caught up in how slick the cans are and how they always seem to appeal to a problem I have. I have tried the aerosol and roll-on varieties many times but it is just something that doesn’t match with my body chemistry. When the new Sensitive Protect deodorants came out, and I read it was designed to help reduce rashes, I had to give it a try. My underarms are usually one of my most painful areas when my skin breaks out with an allergy so I was hoping this deodorant could work some magic.

I have been using Sensitive Protect aerosol deodorant for over a month and I am ready to share my review. Will it stop my itching AND hold back the sweat? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

There is something so lavish about a skincare line that is used in spas. I love a trip to the spa and I love it even more if I can bring home a little piece of it with me. Kerstin Florian (the lady herself) has over 40 years experience in spas so it isn’t a shock that her self-named line of skincare products are a spa exclusive. The line only arrived in Australia for the first time this year so I had never heard of it before. I wanted to try something simple for my first experience so I have chosen the popular Complete Daily Cleanser from the Correcting range to review.  Continue Reading

August is nearly over but I couldn’t let the month fly by without sharing my favourite new release beauty products that went on sale. It was a big month for new releases, with over 75 new beauty products crossing my desk and for the first time in months I actually have favourites in all beauty categories!

This is going to be a big one so let’s just get straight into it ….  Continue Reading

Until recently I had never heard of the brand Pevonia Botanica, but since they have been all over Twitter lately it is hard to avoid them. Now that I have read more about them, I was keen to try some of their products and the first one on the chopping block for review is their Dry Oil Body Moisturizer. I was drawn to this because of its pump bottle, but is that enough for me to call it a winner?

I have done a few reviews in the past on different facial cleansing wipes, including WOTNOT and Clean & Clear, but I always like to share new finds. This time, it is the Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes from the Nivea Visage Daily Essentials range.

Despite my love for skincare and taking the time to apply my 12 assorted creams and serums twice a day, there are some nights I just can’t be bothered. We all have them don’t we. It is late, or I am drunk, or in a bad mood, or I didn’t eat dinner until 9pm so now I am just bloated and need to lie down ….. I have an excuse for everything. So on those nights, I reach for a facial cleansing wipe. I also like to use facial cleansing wipes to remove majority of my makeup before using a regular cleanser. I believe the latter mentioned use of these wipes is why I go through so many packets each month. Oh well, just gives me more chances to review the new ones.

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
