Beauty Bites Featuring FACE OF AUSTRALIA, Comvita, Kuu Konjac & John Plunkett

This week’s Beauty Bites is mostly short sweet morsels of beauty products I have been trialling.  But first up, allow me to show you what happens behind the scenes…

Behind the Scenes of Beauty Blogging :  Unfortunately, my beauty guinea pig blogging role is very unglamorous.  I’m usually in my pyjamas with my geeky glasses on and a box of products waiting to be photographed then swatched then trialled and then blogged.  Baby wipes are a must to remove fingerprints and dust from a product before photographing and to also wipe away swatches on my arm.

FOA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons, Macaron, Cupcake, Sundae

FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons : These cute little lip crayons are the bomb dot com.  Get yours quick as they are limited edition ($14.95 at  To see what they look like on my lips, you know where to go – - yes, I finally updated it today :P

Skincare Goodies From Comvita* : With Winter playing havoc on my skin and causing a big flake-out, I have been using Comvita Olive White Brightening Facial Exfoliant ($36 at to gently remove the flakies and replenish much-needed moisture with Comvita Intensive Hydrating Mask ($50 at  Last week, I went a bit overzealous with scrubbing my face with the exfoliant though and caused a little dry sore patch just under my right eye.  So I put on a thick dollop of the hydrating mask and went to sleep and the next day, my skin was all lovely again.

Kuu Konjac Sponge* : OMG!  My showers have not been the same now that this red Kuu Konjac Sponge ($7.95 at has earned a place in there!  It’s supersoft, spongy goodness to lightly exfoliate me from head to toe.  In fact, I caught my Husband ditching his shower puff and “borrowing” my sponge ball.  No way José!  I’m off to buy him his own Kuu Konjac Sponge so he can stop using mine!  There are a few types depending on your skin.  I’m using the red one which is for dry, sensitive and mature – hey, are you calling me old?! skin

John Plunkett Advanced Instant Wrinkle Filler* : My birthday is next month and it has sent me into mini panic mode as I am worried that the Wrinkle Fairy will visit me.  I do have fine lines which I have been trying to conceal with this Instant Wrinkle Filler ($34.95 at  It’s loaded with silicone so it does a temporary job at smoothing out unwanted finest of fine lines.  But for anything deeper than that, i.e. a wrinkle, it’s just not gonna work.  Le sigh.

Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed this week’s Beauty Bites.  Any products marked with * were press samples.  And in high demand are my dental-related posts so I will try and get one posted soon so stay tuned!
