L'Occitane Verbena Verveine Fresh Shower Gel

Do you like to save a special scent for a time you think it’s more suited? I know, that sounds ridiculous. It’s something I never would have imagined I would do but when I first smelt the limited edition Verbena Fresh Shower Gel back in January I knew it was a perfect Spring/Summer scent for me. I’m not much of a florals and flowers girl, so the sweet, fresh, citrusy scent was exactly what I wanted during Spring. That meant that I had to stash away this product until just recently but now having used it for a couple of months I can definitely say the wait was worth it and the scent is just as I had hoped. So how did it perform as a shower gel? Let me tell you!  Continue Reading

Premium Spa Frangipani Body Wash

Sometimes a girl needs to feel like she can have a spa moment without going to the spa. Lately i’ve been feeling like I need that every morning. My stress levels have been ridiculously high and the only time I feel like I can relax for a minute (or 10) is my morning shower. When Premium Spa introduced me to their incredibly affordable line of spa-inspired body products I could quickly relate to their idea of making spa moments and every day thing.

I started off trialling their theory with the Frangipani & Coconut Body Wash because it sounds like a summer island holiday in a bottle. Considering it’s a blistering winter in Australia right now the possibility of a summer island holiday was incredibly appealing, even if it was only in my shower. Let me share how it turned out.  Continue Reading

Gift Guide Header (1)

Christmas can be a depressing time of year if you think about all the waste and consumerism, but it’s also a happy time of year and gift giving can be lots of fun. I like to think that a good way to take the sting out of Christmas & the holidays is by giving a gift of kindness, and in the beauty realm that can be done by choosing gifts that don’t use any animal products, or aren’t tested on animals, or simply contributed profits to charity. It would be great if we saw these options become more popular but for now the offering from a few select brands gives us more than what we need to bring some joy to our loved ones lives.

I have curated a list of my favourite cruelty-free, vegan or supporting charity gift ideas.  Continue Reading
