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…

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!!!

She’s pretty, she’s witty, she’s an expert on writing about beauty and she recently popped a sprog.  No, I’m not talking about me…!  I’m talking about Zoe Foster Blake who launched her own skincare line, Go-To, earlier this year.

The Go-To range currently consists of a lip balm, cleanser, exfoliating facial pads, face cream and Exceptionoil – a nourishing body oil which I had the pleasure to trial.

Skincare Review : Olay Aquaction


Olay Aquaction review, Olay Acquaction range


During my recent travels, when I landed in Scotland, it was (unsurprisingly) F-F-F-FREEZING.  My skin immediately felt the effects of the long flights, the plunging temperatures and gas central heating and it literally started cracking up!

I was like – WTF?  I have family and friends to catch up with who I haven’t seen for almost 4 years!!  WHY ME?!!  I can’t let them see me looking like a frumpy bum!!!

Luckily, the smart cookie inside me must have anticipated this because before I left Hong Kong to head to UK, I had picked up a few products from the Olay Aquaction range and they miraculously saved my skin and it was back to normal in a matter of days.

5 Face Masks To Suit All Skin Types & Budgets


Palmers Purifying Mask, Quick Fix Mask for Dry Skin, Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, Ultraceuticals Ultra Energising Mask, Estee Lauder Nutritious


When I was back in my hometown Glasgow a few weeks ago, one of the first few things my lovely mother did for me was to book me in for a facial at the beauty salon.  I used to get facials ALL THE TIME back in my pre-Aussie days (before 2009) because :-

1.  I was vain (okay, I kinda still am!) and wanted to have amazing looking skin whilst I was flirting with all the guys (yes, I used to be a big flirt too!)
2.  I used to have a semi-stressful lifestyle where I worked really hard and partied even harder so I earned good money (back then!) and could afford/needed to pamper myself

Nowadays, facials at a beauty salon are a long-lost luxury for me.  Instead, I have to resort to good old DIY (even have to trim my own hair!) facials at home with face masks which I’ve had fun testing (anything non-nappy-related is fun for me these days haha!)

Anyway, let’s take a look at them together and maybe you’ll find one that will tickle your fancy…
