Best Hand Wash and Cleansers

Clean hands are more important than you may realise. We learn about cleaning our hands as a way to avoid germs making us sick, but did you know that dirty hands could also be causing your bad skin? Today, try to pay attention to how many times you touch your face. We do it subconsciously and it’s relatively harmless, unless you struggle with breakouts and blackheads.

Everytime we touch our face we transfer oils, germs and bacteria from our fingers to our fragile skin. When you have large, open pores the nasties you deliver to your skin will sit in there and make themselves at home. Avoiding this outcome can be as simple as having clean hands. Don’t worry though, clean hands can now be an enjoyable beauty experience as well because now we have some delectably hand cleansers to brighten things up. Here are some of the ones I’m currently using.  Continue Reading

Aurora Spa Ritual Grapefruit Seaweed Body Cleanser

One spa I’ve always wanted to visit is the Aurora Spa Retreat in Melbourne. It’s tucked away in The Prince Hotel, where I’ve stayed previously, but I never made it to the spa. Luckily, with their Aurora Spa Rituals product line you don’t have to be in Melbourne to get a taste of their beauty treatments.

Aurora Spa Rituals is a small but essential collection of products directly inspired by the treatments offered at the spa. They combine botanical recipes with modern technology so their products are just as effective as they are beautiful. I trialled the Invigorating Body Cleanser which has a unique combination of Grapefruit and Seaweed. Did it leave me refreshed, clean and uplifted? Read on for the answer.  Continue Reading

I picked up this deodorant during one of my crazy hauls. I loved the look of the CLEAN products when I saw them in Sephora but I had never tried any. Seeing as though I am always on the look out for new and different things, I thought this deodorant was worth a try because it has no animal ingredients, no sulfates, no aluminum and it has time-released fragrance to keep you feeling fresh all day. That is a lot of promises for one deodorant so how did it perform? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

It is Halloween month and my most favourite time of the year to see spooky makeup looks and ghoulish nails. Other than Halloween though, the beauty front will be a little quiet for new launches this October. There were just over 50 products keeping me busy to consider for my monthly favourites but I got through them and I have come up with these top picks.

Don’t forget to tell me what has taken your fancy this month! Continue Reading
