Review : Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

I liken Lush stores to Marmite (hey, I’m a British ex-pat but for Aussies sake, Vegemite) – you either love it or hate it.  And for the record, I don’t like Marmite nor Vegemite…and I also don’t like Lush stores because of the intoxicating headache-inducing scent you get from just being in a 5km radius of a Lush store.  So why am I reviewing a Lush product today?

Well, many moons ago { over a year actually *gulps* }, I got sent a Lush package…it also had a strong scent…and I avoided opening it for a while.  But when I did, I was pleasantly surprised to find a few products that actually smelt AMAZING and worked a treat.  And here is one of my favourite Lush products – Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub.

Review : Mary Kay Timewise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector

“You have grey hairs!” – declared my husband.  For him to notice, it is MAJOR!  Luckily for me and all the greying ladies out there, we have hair dye to combat this sign of ageing!

Another classic sign of ageing is wrinkles.  Unfortunately, wrinkles is not that easy to hide…

I am in my mid-thirties so wrinkles are a big concern for me.  A few months ago, I was offered Botox injections but I had to decline as I am still breastfeeding Bunty.

And then recently, I was offered Mary Kay TimeWise+ Volu-Fill Wrinkle Corrector to trial and I immediately said YES PLEASE!  GET THEE TO MY WRINKLES STAT!

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

 

best hand creams, handcreams, luxe hand creams

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.
