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

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
