Posts in Easy Wax Strips

The one thing that really stood out to me at the Alice McCall Spring-Summer collection recently shown at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week was all the sexy legs. Ok obviously the models are long, lean and thin but I was more surprised at the actual skin texture. Having been backstage at quite a few shows, it was funny to see that some of the models still went down the runway with visible fine white hairs on their legs.
Clearly this is something that is accepted in some peoples world, but in mine it is not. Yes, ok, throw things, yell at me, go ahead. While I totally admit it would be easier to not have to ever worry about hair removal and just go ‘naturale’, I personally think seeing a girl in a kicking dress with silky soft legs is more pleasant on my eyes than seeing the same girl with a kicking dress with furry dark-haired legs.

It would seem Alice McCall felt the same way as I, and made sure all her models had fluff-free legs to show off her adorable mini dresses. Veet came to her rescue by offering up Suprem’Essence Easy Wax Strips and Alice seemed pleased

“It’s always important to have our girls looking perfectly groomed to showcase the collection. Having the girls with beautifully smooth legs courtesy of Veet is essential grooming that gives them that extra air of confidence to take to the runway today. ”

I personally think it was a great match because the Veet Easy Wax Strips are quick, easy and mess free. Plus, the Suprem-Essence range has essential oils in the formula to help ease irritation and keep the legs smooth.

While backstage I pulled aside one of the Veet ladies and asked how you beautiful ladies can get ‘runway legs’. They offered up these tips:

For some people, mother’s day is seen as a huge milestone and another chance to celebrate having their mom around. I personally know many people who have lost their mother at a young age, or came close to it, and they are the ones who truly see some value in Mother’s Day. For those people, picking up a box of chocolates is not an option. They want to do something else, something more personal. For those people, I have an idea for you.

Back when I was younger my mother always made sure there was more than one birthday gift. It would either be a bunch of smaller things or a couple of items I really wanted ….. but either way, there was more than one. If you like receiving gifts, like I do, than this is the most exciting thing in the world. My mother would always wrap things individually which was fun for me, but as I get older I tend to like the ‘goody bag’ approach. Opening one item, be it a box or bag, and finding lots of fun things sends me over the moon. Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
