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.

The instructions were simple enough: Continue Reading

Nad’s Ingrow Solution

My body always goes into shock when I remove hair, whether it be with a razor, cream or wax, which manifests as a cross between heat rash and razor burn. It looks absolutely awful and feels a million times worse. Burning, itching and inflamed skin is never a good companion, especially on your vacation. During my last-minute dash through Priceline prior to my vacation in Bali, I grabbed the Ingrow Solution by Nad’s. I have never used this particular product but I have had some luck with other razor burn solutions previously so I was hoping this one would be a winner.

Did it save my skin? Will it be a summer staple? Read my review to find out!  Continue Reading

Happy end of June and let us give thanks to the end of another financial year. Why, you ask.
