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.

Review & Swatch : MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless


MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless


After giving a not-that-fantastic review on the MUA Ever After Matte Palette, I wanted to quickly follow up with a better review on another MUA product I bought this year.  It’s from their MUA Luxe range – Reckless, a Velvet Lip Lacquer.  You know I love my lip products and this one is on point and I wish I bought more colours.

{ Side note : If you didn’t know already, I’ve resurrected my Lip Stalker channel here or go straight to my new YSL 52 lipstick swatch video here.  I’ve just reached over 29K subscribers & nearly 10 MILLION video views!  Just WOW!  Thanks for the support! }

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.
