Johnsons-Daily-Essentials-Refreshing-Facial-Cleansing-Wipes-300x262

Winter is when I am at my laziness peak. I am feeling so lazy right now I can barely write this review. So you can imagine just how lazy I am when it comes to removing my makeup each evening when all I want to do is crawl under my blankets. I do know better though, and no matter what I want to do I know that removing my makeup is essential before hitting the pillow. But no where did it say I have to drench myself with water trying to wash my face over a sink. No, no, I am allowed to cheat with face cleansing wipes and so are you.

The wipes I have just finished were the Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes from Johnson’s. I really regret choosing ones that were titled “Refreshing” because that is definitely what I didn’t need at midnight in the freezing cold, but that was the hand I dealt myself. I will explain in more detail in my review but let’s just say you want to leave these ones for warmer weather.  Continue Reading

Bedside Table Beauty

I know I am going on and on about winter lately but it seems to be especially cold really early this year. We are barely out of Autumn but the morning and evening temperature have me digging out the gloves, scarves and sleep socks. It also means I have been pulling out the fail-safe cold weather beauty essentials and keeping them within arms reach.

Today I want to share with you what beauty products you will find on my bedside table if you walk into my bed room right now. Continue Reading

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.

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!
