Posts in Juicy Tubes

For all you adoring Lancôme Juicy Tubes fans, you are in for a special treat. Right now, like today, like this minute … the all new and very limited edition Juicy Tubes by Yayoi Kusama are going on sale in Australia.

For a while now I have had my eye on the first collection of Yayoi Kusama Juicy Tubes. For some reason I haven’t been able to find these in Australia but maybe I didn’t look hard enough. Not to worry though because now there is a brand new collection and from the look and sound of it, these ones are going to be kick ass! For those of you who aren’t aware of Yayoi Kusama, don’t worry. I didn’t until I found out about her collaboration with Lancôme.

The new collection contains 6 glosses that are not only unique in colour, but also in fragrance. Yes, rumour has it that Yayoi actually came up with fragrances to match each of her creations. I think that is preeeeeeetty cool. Before I tell you what I think about No. 12 Exotic Bomb, let’s learn a bit more about the collection.

Standard Lancôme packaging on the outside. Fun on the inside!

The Collection

Today, reflecting the mood of her current artwork, Yayoi Kusama is remodelling Juicy Tubes around the theme of love. She offers Lancôme’s pop-princess gloss three unique designs that are as poetic as the most sincere promises of eternal love.

With dazzling shine, Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love is empowered by a prodigious texture that combines two new generation components. The first is a transparent “mirror oil”, which is more fluid and less sticky than traditional glosses. The second is a “Bouncy polymer”, encapsulated in the formula within chains of beads that are released on application to dress lips with a smooth, even, glossy finish. Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love’s texture plays with light and redefines the notion of mirror shine.

Fruity, energising shades

10 Crazy Yuzu, with radiant notes of yuzu, and boosted with a hint of basil.
11 Vigorous Fruit, where the raspberry fragrance is lifted by a touch of mint.
12 Exotic Bomb, whose gentle strawberry aroma is interlaced with pink peppercorn.

Soothing, floral shades

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
