Best Hand Wash and Cleansers

Clean hands are more important than you may realise. We learn about cleaning our hands as a way to avoid germs making us sick, but did you know that dirty hands could also be causing your bad skin? Today, try to pay attention to how many times you touch your face. We do it subconsciously and it’s relatively harmless, unless you struggle with breakouts and blackheads.

Everytime we touch our face we transfer oils, germs and bacteria from our fingers to our fragile skin. When you have large, open pores the nasties you deliver to your skin will sit in there and make themselves at home. Avoiding this outcome can be as simple as having clean hands. Don’t worry though, clean hands can now be an enjoyable beauty experience as well because now we have some delectably hand cleansers to brighten things up. Here are some of the ones I’m currently using.  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites April 2013

Wow. April flew by a little too quick for my liking. With all the madness of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia I completely lost track of time. Who knew 5 days of madness can create a black hole for time. I may have left it to the first day of May but I am not too late to share with you some of my favourite beauty products to launch in April … right?!?

April was a mammoth month for new beauty. A total of 87 new products crossed my path but not all were made equally. There were lots of new Mother’s Day gift-worthy releases but I am going to save those for another post. For now, these are the new April products topping my list. Continue Reading

Foaming hand soap is a new craze taking over our supermarket shelves and I am finding it rather intriguing. It seems the sensorial pleasure we associate with “foaming” beauty products is just becoming bigger as we have seen it in the past with hair dye, face cleansers and even foundation. Hand wash is may just be the next cab off the rank but I suspect we will eventually see a foam/mousse formula in nearly every beauty product category. Until then, let’s look at how the hand wash rates …. Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
