If there were just one minority of people who knew how to expertly shop for beauty products it would have to be beauty bloggers. I’m heading to the USA soon and it’s been a long time since I stepped foot in my beloved beauty store, Sephora. By now I thought Sephora would be shipping to Australia but as we know, that isn’t happening. To assist me in preparing a shopping list I called on my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which one product they deemed an essential Sephora purchase. Continue Reading

Happy end of June and let us give thanks to the end of another financial year. Why, you ask. Because if you are lucky you will have a tax return in your not too distant future and that means you can spend it one some hot new goodies for yourself, perhaps some of the hot new goodies I am featuring in this post. June was MASSIVE in the beauty sector and I was kept busy with 79 new launches for the month. That is more products than some online stores even stock!
Picking my favourites was as difficult as ever but I think I have come up with a curated list of life-changers. Take a look and tell me what you fancy. Continue Reading

Have you heard about Jojoba before? I have. In fact it was the first skincare ingredient I ever heard of. The Body Shop were the ones who introduced me to it way back when they first opened a shop in Bondi Junction. Their Jojoba moisturiser was the first skincare product I ever bought. I wasn’t even a teenager and the only reason I bought it was because it was tinted pink. This was way back when they had their original packaging (wish I had a photo of it to show you. Boy their packaging has changed!) and the brand was so new that everyone was addicted.
Back then I loved that little pot of cream. Was it smooth? Yes. Was it coloured pink? Yes. Did it smell nice? Oh YES YES YES. That was what I truly liked about it. Funny thing is, I never bought it again. I guess I moved on to trying other brands and other ingredients. Well, today I have come full circle and am back to giving the Jojoba plant another chance. This time with The Jojoba Company and their cleansing oil.
The strange thing that I have realised while trying out this product was that the Jojoba scent is very distinct. No doubt about it. As soon as I took one whiff of it the memories came rushing back. But this time, I didn’t it. Can ones nose change that much (well of course the outside can …. I did that back in ’08)? Continue Reading
