Posts in O Cosmedics

O Cosmedics is a fairly new Australian skincare brand which officially launched August 2011. They are 100% Australian owned and made which is always something that makes me proud. The O Cosmedics skincare line is designed to be prescription only and it uses the purest medical grade ingredients combined with the most potent natural ingredients. It is a unique concept and even though the line isn’t massive (about 15 products) but the offering is concise for particular skin needs and concerns. I am reviewing the Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser because antioxidant’s are something we all need, no matter how good your skin is! Continue Reading

Did you know Prunes have more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable? No really, I didn’t believe it either. Even Pomegranates. I always thought Prunes were just good for your digestive system. The thing is, science isn’t exactly my forte.

So, these are meant to make us look good?

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
