Types of Sunscreen & Product Recommendations in Australia

ego skincare, sunsense sunscreen

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.

Review : Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Cure Natural Aqua Gel

If you read Asian beauty blogs, you will most likely have already read the plentiful reviews of Cure Natural Aqua Gel.  No it is not a new product, so why am I reviewing this today??  Well, it’s because I wanted to share the backstory on how I acquired this…


Review : Johnson’s Night Pampering Facial Cleansing Wipes

ohnson's Night Pampering Facial Cleansing Wipes

Yesterday, I excitedly wrote a post which had an intro of “Let’s get intimate today and talk about vaginas!” BUT it isn’t ready as I haven’t had an opportunity to take photos for it yet (boo!) so today, you’re going to get a review on Johnson’s Night Pampering Facial Cleansing Wipes*.  Come on, I know you’re excited because the last time I wrote about their wipes here, I actually got comments!!  Yes, comments – remember them??  It’s the love you give bloggers who deliver you free content to read when you’re sitting in the loo! *HINT HINT*


Review : Proactiv+ Deluxe Kit

Proactiv+, Proactiv+ Australia, best acne products

Acne.  The dreaded skin condition that nobody wants.  And if you’re unlucky enough to get it, you will know it is a bitch to manage it.

I come from a family of acne sufferers.  My Mum was hospitalised after a crazy hormonal acne breakout after giving birth to one of my 6 younger siblings.  And out of my family of 9, only my Dad has acne-free, blemish-free skin.  As for me, my acne manifests on my back as bacne.  And this bacne had a bitchfit when my hormones surged after giving birth a few months ago.

Enter Proactiv+

Lancome DreamTone Dark Spot Corrector : Allow me to start off with a disclaimer.  I am a marketer’s wet dream.  Show me any beauty product beautifully packaged in pink and I’ll throw myself all over it like the girls when they met The Bachelor (oops, did I just reveal my new reality TV obsession?!).  This Lancome bottle is not only pink, but it is one up with ombre pink!!!
