Simple Spotless Rapid Action Spot Zapper

Pimples don’t stop making themselves present just because you turn 25. In fact, I believe I’ve had more pimples as an adult than I ever had as a pre-teen or teenager. Stress, diet, hormones and environmental changes are something that have contributed greatly to my recent season of breakouts. I have a pretty solid daily skincare regime but when the occasional breakout rears its ugly head I don’t go changing my entire routine. I break out a spot treatment instead.

Simple Skincare’s range expansion now includes blemish fighters. I recently picked up the Spot Zapper as I’m a sucker for trying a new release and the roll-on applicator intrigued me. Has it been combatting my pimples? Read the review below to find out! Continue Reading

Desert Island Beauty Packing List

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve been asked what my desert island beauty picks would be. My answer is always sunscreen. Hands down, it’s the most important because without it we would burn to a crisp, dehydrate and die. But what if you knew you were going to a deserted island for 4 days, with 3 of your friends, a heap of beer and delicious meals? What beauty supplies would you need then? Well, that’s the exact situation I faced when I jetted off to XXXX Island in Queensland.

As a guest of my friend, Helen of, I was challenged to live the good life for a few days on the XXXX private island along with our friends Sophia of Moulin Frock and Nicole of Confidant Liar. So what the heck do I pack? The battle between the lazy Kimmi and the prepare-for-any-situation Kimmi fought it out to come up with the perfect beauty pack list. These are the crucial items I packed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Proactiv Advanced Blemish Pimple Cream

I don’t know what it is but pimples have been attacking my face the past few months. I know I’ve been exceptionally stressed, and that accounts for the majority of my breakouts, but I’m thinking there is an underlying cause I need to investigate. I’ve never had many breakouts in my years and I was hoping to skate through life with few more. Seeing as though that hasn’t been the case recently, I’ve turned to blemish spot treatments to help me over a few lumpy breakouts until I get my skin on track. I’ve never used, nor had a need to use, Proactiv Solution products but when I found the little tube of Advanced Blemish Cream buried deep in a box of skincare products I thought now would be the time to give it a go.

Do you need acne in order to use Proactiv? Will Proactiv work for my dry, mildly-blemished skin? Does Proactiv really work for Adam Levine, Julianne Hough and Naya Rivera? My review reveals the answers, except for that last question (who knows what works for celebrities!?!). Continue Reading

Best new beauty product launches

Eeeek, is that really the date already? I know August is well and truly over but I can’t pass up sharing my favourites for the month. As for the delay in posting it, well, I blame New York Fashion Week. You’ll soon see why that took up so much of my time.

It was a somewhat slow month for new launches, with only 28 new products gracing my desk, but nearly all of them grabbed my attention and many of them will be fronting some big advertising campaigns over the coming months. I’m sure this won’t be the first nor last you see of them Continue Reading
