Posts in Innoxa

It is starting to warm up in Sydney, Australia and with summer not far away I decided to switch to a lighter body wash. I never used to be a sweaty person but as I am ageing I am finding it doesn’t take much to draw a sweat. Either that or the globe really is getting so much hotter than before. Maybe it is a little from Column A and a little from Column B. Nevertheless, today I am giving you my review of Restore Body Wash by Australian brand Innoxa.  Continue Reading

This year we have teamed up with some of the biggest brands our fine country has to offer in order to give back to the amazingly supportive beauty consumers you all know you are. Competitions will be a big priority for us in 2012 and I am glad to welcome Innoxa as our latest competition partner.

Innoxa is one of Australia’s greatest brands and I am always so proud when I hear someone say they love something from Innoxa. It is like that person and I are soul mates. They make beautiful products from high quality ingredients and don’t test on animals.

Here is what we are giving away … Continue Reading

With our postal services chock-a-block with christmas care packages being sent to loved ones, I thought it would be fun to send out my own little beauty-inspired care package. To make it a bit different, I am going to make it all about Australian brands. If you didn’t know already, I am quite proud of our Australian beauty market and I don’t think it is fair for me to keep it all to myself.

The Competition

Up for grabs in this competition is what I would call ‘Australian Essentials’. Skincare, Suncare and of course … Fake Tan.  Continue Reading

I don’t get to celebrate the joy of Christmas, or any other gift giving holiday, so I don’t usually care much for gift guides or gifting ideas that come out at this time of year. However, I have come to the realisation that there are now people actually reading this blog (THANK-YOU SOOOO MUCH. I am finally no longer talking to open air), and those people may get to celebrate the fun that is the holiday silly season. For you, I am going to run a set of beauty gift guides. You may find a fragrance to treat yourself, or some skincare or cosmetics for the women in your life.

The first gift guide is all under $15. Did someone say Bargain Alert!

5 Beauty Bargains For Her Under $15

These gifts are perfect for stocking stuffers, office gift giving, Kris Kringle or Secret Santa scenarios and for anyone on a tight budget. Continue Reading

Just in time for a cold, depressing winter Innoxa have released a brand new range of lipsticks that will keep your pucker smooth and brightly coloured.  The Classic Colour lipsticks come in 12 wearable shades and are packed with good things like Vitamin E to make sure it doesn’t dry out our poor chapped lips. Sweet!

Today I am going to show you 9 of the new lipstick shades and share my thoughts on the product.

What I Say ….

  • First thing I notice, as always, is the packaging. These lipsticks come with a peek-a-boo colour block base so you can easily see which colour you are about to apply, and a shiny black lid. There is a very nice sounding click when you close the lid and you really have to actually pull to get the lid off. That means this packaging is handbag perfect.
  • The colour range is really nice, with a lot of subtle differences but enough of a variety to ensure a colour for everyone. Some of the colours are 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
