Mesoestetic Dermatological Sun Protection

I started playing with the Mesoestetic sunscreen just before my trip to Bali. The high rated protection against UVA and UVB is exactly what I look for during the sunshine of Spring/Summer but like all sunscreen, each one can look and feel very different. I believe finding the right sunscreen for you is as vital as breathing oxygen, so don’t give up wearing it if you haven’t found one you like the look or feel of.

Mesoestetic is a high-performing cosmeceutical brand. Their professional products are used in skin clinics all over the world but few people know about their home-use products. This sunscreen is from the Home Performance line and a great starting point to get introduced to the brand.  Continue Reading

Sunscreen For Summer Travel

Possibly the one thing that was easy for me to pack for my trip to Bali was sunscreen. I love sunscreen and I use it everyday but going for an island getaway where I know there will be activities such as swimming means I have to factor in more protection than required when I am sitting in my office each day. I took that as my license to bring multiples.

Here are the sunscreens accompanying me on my holiday. Surely half a dozen will cover it?  Continue Reading

Priori Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser with LCA Complex

A gentle cleanser for everyday use is an essential for everyone. No matter what skin type you have, you should have one within easy reach that gently cleanses the skin, removes makeup, and is free of fragrance. Priori’s Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser works on that premise but boasts the power to do a whole lot more as well. Can a gentle everyday face wash improve your skin and help prevent aging? That is the claim and I put it to the test for this review. Continue Reading

O Cosmedics is a fairly new Australian skincare brand which officially launched August 2011. They are 100% Australian owned and made which is always something that makes me proud. The O Cosmedics skincare line is designed to be prescription only and it uses the purest medical grade ingredients combined with the most potent natural ingredients. It is a unique concept and even though the line isn’t massive (about 15 products) but the offering is concise for particular skin needs and concerns. I am reviewing the Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser because antioxidant’s are something we all need, no matter how good your skin is! Continue Reading

You all know how much I love skincare, and none more so than paramedical grade products. One brand that recently came to my attention is Cellnique and for some of my lovely Asian-beauty brand obsessed readers you may very well be familiar with their products. They recently just launched their brand new website and together with Cellnique, we are going to celebrate with a competition. First up, I want to share my thoughts on the new website!  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!
