Top 50 Beauty

When you hear “Top 50 Most Influential People in Beauty” few would think a beauty blogger would fall into that selection. You would probably think of celebrities, fashion designers, makeup artists, beauty retailers and frankly anyone other than a blogger. However, for one very well deserving blogger, it’s undeniable that her influence is far greater than many of those you may initially consider and it has been cemented by the fact she has been included on a list created by one of the world’s leading authorities on the matter.

WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) is the industry insider in all things fashion and beauty. A few days ago WWD Beauty Inc announced first annual list of the power players who are shaping the beauty business today. You will see in the list below that there are a few surprises (including one of our favourite Australian retailers) but one that is no surprise to me or anyone that reads her blog is that of Christine Mielke of TemptaliaContinue Reading

SK-II Facial Regime Header

SK-II is one of the big brands I had never got around to trying. I had heard so much about it, I have friends rave to me about it and in all honesty it has been towards the top of my list of products to try for a few years, but for some reason it just never happened. That all changed earlier this year when I had the opportunity to have a facial with Fumi Yamamoto, the founder of Zen Facial in Sydney. On paper Fumi is a wellness and spa consultant, but what she does goes far beyond that. Her facials are the what dreams are made of. Her hands are like little magic wands that vanish flaws and create good-lookingness (the thesaurus couldn’t give me a better word for that one).

Fumi was going to use all SK-II products so I had a skin consultation before to find out exactly what products were right for me. Using the SK-II Magic Ring (a special camera used at SK-II counters to look at the skin through different light waves) we determined my skin was in pretty good condition but I definitely had a few concerns to work on, namely some pigmentation, dryness and of course my desire to slow down the ageing process. I don’t need to tell you about the facial, because it was amazing and I fell asleep, so I am going to share my review of the products I was prescribed and whether the regime worked for me.  Continue Reading

Oral-B Pro-Health toothpaste

The Oral-B Pro-Health toothpaste has been dubbed a revolutionary dental product by those in the know, but let’s face it, all we care about is if it works and if it tastes ok. Fancy shmancy technology? It definitely has that but I was skeptical that this toothpaste was really going to live up to all the hype. Credited as an all-in-one toothpaste, it claims to address all areas of dental concern rather than just picking one like other toothpastes. Cavities, gingivitis, plaque, sensitivity, enamel, tartar, whitening and breath – all round protection available in two flavours, Clean Mint and Fresh Mint. After using the Clean Mint toothpaste for the past few months I am ready give my final judgement and I think if you have teeth you will want to read this review.  Continue Reading

Tampax Pearl Super 18 pack

Women’s business is never a fun topic but I think it is an important one we shouldn’t shy away from. Just like all beauty categories, feminine hygiene is one that sees new developments discovered and new products released. Most of the time we will just wander down the personal care aisle at the supermarket, pick out the brand we know and trust, and use that until menopause comes knocking but there actually might be something out there that can provide you a more comfortable experience. I try to change things up once in a while and it has always worked in my favour. I figured I would show you some of the new feminine care products available and maybe next time you visit the supermarket you will find yourself trying something new.  Continue Reading

The Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign is an amazing initiative to get woman to grow their hair long and strong, then donate to have it turned into a free wig for cancer patients. In the USA, Pantene USA have been running this campaign since 2006 in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. To date they have distributed over 24,000 free real-hair wigs through the American Cancer Society wig banks. Now the campaign has come to Australia and in conjunction with Look Good … Feel Better, Pantene Australia hope to break the record of free wigs created and distributed across Australia AND New Zealand.

Yesterday, I participated by cutting my hair off and donating my ponytail. Today I want to share with you why I did it, and my journey in video and pictures. Continue Reading
