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

I probably couldn’t count the amount of beauty products I acquired in 2012. To be honest, I tried but I lost count after 1650 (wow, I feel sick but also very pleased with myself).

Today I am going to share with you the 12 products I couldn’t get enough of in 2012. Make sure you tell me yours in the comments!  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
