FOA Cosmetics Tinted Moisturiser Review

One of my long-time favourite Australian brands is Face of Australia. I’ve been using their products for years and they used to be a strong, reliable producer of certified cruelty-free cosmetic products. However, things have changed dramatically in the past couple years and it has saddened me. They ditched the cruelty-free certification (which makes their status a mystery as you are purely taking them on their word), promotion of new releases has been silent and their website is in desperate need of a makeover. Despite my own little pet peeves I feel going on, I can’t help but been drawn to their products when I do see them. For that reason, I will continue to review their cosmetics for now.

One of their more recent releases were an updated line of Tinted Moisturisers, now with SPF50+ as opposed to their earlier SPF30+ product. I’m not keen on tinted moisturisers generally because the tints are usually too dark for my skin or they appear muddy. I wanted to try the Face of Australia Tinted Moisturiser anyway as the appeal of an SPF50 was strong for me. Would this one be any different? Could this be the tinted moisturiser game changer?  Continue Reading

Skincare Application Video Tutorial

Learning how to apply your skincare products is an important part of looking after yourself. Not all products should be applied in the same way and unless you were instructed on how to apply the products you’re using, you may actually be assisting your skin to form lines or lose elasticity at a faster rate. This is why I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how to apply skincare products.   Continue Reading

Desert Island Beauty Packing List

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve been asked what my desert island beauty picks would be. My answer is always sunscreen. Hands down, it’s the most important because without it we would burn to a crisp, dehydrate and die. But what if you knew you were going to a deserted island for 4 days, with 3 of your friends, a heap of beer and delicious meals? What beauty supplies would you need then? Well, that’s the exact situation I faced when I jetted off to XXXX Island in Queensland.

As a guest of my friend, Helen of SASSYBELLA.com, I was challenged to live the good life for a few days on the XXXX private island along with our friends Sophia of Moulin Frock and Nicole of Confidant Liar. So what the heck do I pack? The battle between the lazy Kimmi and the prepare-for-any-situation Kimmi fought it out to come up with the perfect beauty pack list. These are the crucial items I packed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Skincare

Having a skincare regime that addresses all your skin concerns and needs is absolutely vital for not only looking your best but feeling your best as well. When your skin is healthy it has a flow-on effect to all part of our wellbeing. I’ve been a long-time believer in the power of cosmeceuticals and medical grade skin care. One brand that has been pioneering cosmeceuticals for many years in Australia is Intraceuticals but until now I hadn’t tried their individual products, I’ve only had their in-clinic treatments.

During Fall/Winter my primary skincare concern was hydration so it was the perfect time to trial the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate range. I’ve been using the Daily Serum, Hydration Gel and Moisture Binding cream which make up their 3-step Hyaluronic Layering system. Did these products keep my skin hydrated during the bitter cold? Let me tell you in this review.  Continue Reading

Best New Beauty Products

I don’t want to admit it but … September is over. I know, it’s a shock considering it’s actually almost October but can you believe it? I swear it was only February last month but now we are rolling into the month of Pumpkin Spice lattes and Halloween-themed everything. Now that we’ve said goodbye to September let me show you which products launched that captured my attention.

Nearly 60 new products landed on my desk for their September launch and it was overwhelming just how good the competition between them were. The biggest competition was in the lips category …. so many new, shiny, pretty lippies! Which ones won me over? Let’s find out! Continue Reading
