SunSense Lip Balm SPF 50+

We all know the damage sun can do to our skin. Not only can it burn us and leave immediate physical damage but it can prove damaging longterm by producing cancer cells, age spots and wrinkles. One area of our body that is not exempt from this damage, but most people seem to ignore, is our lips.

Protecting your lips from sun damage is just as important as any other part of your body. If you want to keep your lips shapley, plump and cancer free the best way to achieve this is with a Lip Balm that includes a high protection factor. SunSense is a trusted brand in Australia for keeping our skin sun safe. I bought their SPF 50+ lip balm this summer to see if it can do the job for my pout. My review reveals if you can trust it too and if it’s pleasant to use:  Continue Reading

I don’t get pimples very often but when I do they can be a monster. I mostly get pimples from stress, which means they appear at really inopportune times, which also means I want them gone FAST. Ok, obviously anyone with a pimple wants it to clear fast. In my case, I don’t need a long term management system but what I do need is a good spot treatment. Azclear Action is an Australian brand by Ego Pharmaceuticals, the same people who make QV Skincare and SunSense. I am reviewing one of the two products in the Azclear Action line, the Medicated Lotion.

The Azclear Action products are specifically designed for breakouts of pimples, blackheads, acne and rosacea. 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
