Review : Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum


Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum


Let’s rewind a few weeks back.  I was holed up in bed (or more like, hogging the toilet) because I had suffered from lactose-induced gastro.  For days, I could not eat or drink anything without it coming up (or out the other end –> #TMI).  Yes, it helped shift the last of my post-pregnancy weight, but boy, did it cause havoc on my skin as I was severely dehydrated!!  Enter my skincare saviour – Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum*…

6 Luxurious Hand Creams You Should Try Today

I never understood my girlfriends’ obsessions with hand creams.  You know the girls who :-

  • Carry hand creams in their handbags
  • Have hand creams in their own car AND in their partner’s car AND next to the bathroom sink AND on their bedside table AND in the fridge (okay, I made that last one up!)
  • Apply hand cream every hour on the dot

Well, I finally get it.  Kinda.

Now that I’ve had a baby (it’s ALWAYS about the baby!), I can truly appreciate a luxurious hand cream which will not only keep your hands lovely and moisturised like baby soft skin but also, keep the dreaded hand wrinkles at bay!

Tried & Tested : Whitening Skincare


Estee Lauder CyberWhite HD Advanced Spot Correcting Moisture Lotion, La Clinica range, organic whitening skincare


As soon as I had given birth (and gotten over all the traumatic shizznizz – read my birth story here), one of the major things I wanted to deal with was melasma – the pregnancy pigmentation on my face.  Luckily for me, Estee Lauder and La Clinica sent through a few whitening skincare products for me to try.  I’ve been using the products on and off over the last 10 months or so and I’m finally ready to share my review.

Types of Sunscreen & Product Recommendations in Australia

Whether I’m in (my country of birth) sunny Scotland (*insert sarcastic giggle* because when is Scotland ever sunny?) or (my current country of residence) in Australia, I make sure that I slap on some sort of sun protection every morning because I do not want :-

1) wrinkles
2) pigmentation
3) skin cancer

Yes, some people associate ‘sun’ with ‘tan’ and they LOVE baking in the sun but no, not I, sir!  Don’t get me wrong though, I love sunshine as it is uplifting and makes me happy but I’ll go slap on sunscreen and sit in the darkest shade, thank you very much.

In case you’re not a skincare boffin, allow me to give you a mini sunscreen lecture along with product recommendations…

Lovely New Goodies from Imperial Leather


Imperial Leather Bodywash and Anti-Bacterial Handwash


After blogging about the Cure Natural Aqua Gel which triggered a memory I have of my Dad, I thought it was only fair to share a story about my Mum.  When I think of Imperial Leather, I think of my Mum.  She is a creature of habit so when she finds a product which works, she sticks to it.  She LOVES Imperial Leather soap.  That’s the only thing she uses in the shower and she also uses that to wash her hands too.

Anyway, new Imperial Leather goodies recently landed on my beauty radar – Imperial Leather Bodywash and Anti-Bacterial Handwash – and let me tell you, they smell divine.
