Foreo Luna Mini Device

It only occurred to me recently that despite my numerous mentions of Foreo’s Luna devices, I hadn’t actually shared a full review. Bad blogger! After nearly a year on sale internationally, the Foreo Luna face cleansing tools finally went on sale in Australia this past March. They launched with the Luna and the Luna Mini, the latter of which I’m reviewing for you.

I chop and change which face cleansing tools I use but in the electric devices category I’ve always loved the Clarisonic. To be fair, it was a genius innovation for its time but now there is competition in the sonic face cleansing market. Can Foreo convert me to the dark side? Read on to find out. Continue Reading

People For Plants rosehip, ginkgo, shea DAY CREAM

Organic skincare is nothing new but would you believe that most of the brands that claim their product is 100% organic are actually telling a few fibs? The fact is that there are so many organisations offering organic certification but none of them have the exact same standards. The People for Plant range is certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO), Australia’s largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce, responsible for certifying more than 70% of the Australian organic industry. They’re one of the strictest but that is exactly what PFP co-founders wanted. It’s also the reason you won’t see “100% organic” smacked on their packaging. Each PFP product lists the actual percentage of certified organic ingredients – like this day cream at 91.8%.

Anna Addicoat and Andrew Brown founded the brand with their good friend Jamie Durie (yes, THAT Jamie Durie) and as you would expect from Jamie’s love of plants, they only wanted to use the best in their product range. I’ve been learning a lot about this range since it launched in June 2013 and that is why I’ve chosen their Day Cream as the first review. Is it amazing or complete hogwash? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites June 2013

Happy end of June and let us give thanks to the end of another financial year. Why, you ask. Because if you are lucky you will have a tax return in your not too distant future and that means you can spend it one some hot new goodies for yourself, perhaps some of the hot new goodies I am featuring in this post. June was MASSIVE in the beauty sector and I was kept busy with 79 new launches for the month. That is more products than some online stores even stock!

Picking my favourites was as difficult as ever but I think I have come up with a curated list of life-changers. Take a look and tell me what you fancy. Continue Reading

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!
