Posts in New Complexion

It is not often that a huge, multi-national cosmetic company chooses Australia as a test market for a new product. In the case of the new Revlon foundation, that is exactly what has happened.

Australia has been the lucky chosen market to test out the New Complexion Oil-Control Makeup. Aussie beauty buyers will be the first to put this formula to the test, and based on how it is received, tweaks could be made to the final formula before rolling it out into other markets. Is that exciting or what?!?!

Even when you have clear skin (like I raved about yesterday) you still want a good foundation. I am a fan of medium to full coverage foundations, but more than anything I want a foundation that doesn’t leave me oily. That is the most important factor for me. The sound of the new Revlon foundation appears to be up my alley, but what do I really think of it?

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!
