May/13/2018

Nearly a decade ago, I borrowed my mum's tube for the first time (this was when I was a poor student with no concept of how grotty it actually is to borrow someone else's eye makeup, simpler times...) It was the first mascara I had tried that DIDN'T end up smeared half-way down my face by midday (oily gal probs), making me look like a hungover, hard-partying panda who had been in a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

May/03/2018

I got this little gem with a couple of other "The Ordinary" products a several months ago, because they were cheap and I had heard good things about them.
I have combo oily skin that is prone to hormonal acne and generally looking a bit worse for wear (I'm an RN that works long shifts in a busy paediatric ward, so shift work, air conditioning and exposure to bacteria, viruses …

Primer/ Corrector - Deciem - The Ordinary High Spreadability Fluid Primer

May/03/2018

This little bottle was amongst the first 'The Ordinary' product I tried.
Initially I picked it due to the fact that it was only $10 and since my skin is fickle, a tenner wouldn't break the bank if my face rejected it. I've been burned by very expensive primers before, which promise so much but under-deliver in longevity, are from brands that test on animals or are just …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Antipodes Joyous Protein-Rich Night Repair Oil

Sep/01/2016

I have combination-oily skin which means I am both very dry and flaky AND oily over my T-zone at the same time. Weird, I know. I also have quite sensitive skin which, like people, doesn't do too well with change. Having spent a lot of time in hospital as a patient and an employee, my skin has been treated to crazy air-conditioning, harsh soaps, ridiculous shift-work hours and then the …Read more

Skincare - Body - Weleda - Sea Buckthorn Body Oil

Sep/01/2016

I've never been a body oil person. I've always found them way too greasy or vaguely sticky. "Put it on at night" people said, "You'll sleep through the worst of it!" Fat chance, I sleep on my stomach and an arm full of oil on my sensitive skin overnight has me waking up with pizza-face. No joke.
Enter this gem from Weleda.
I'm not going to lie …

Hair - Unlisted Brand - Eleven Australia - Miracle Hair Treatment

Apr/03/2016

I bought this product after using my sisters bottle for a week or so and really liked how manageable it made my hair. I have very fine, slightly oily hair that really lacks volume, unless I use volumising products specifically, or if it is very windy. The flip side to having super fine hair like mine is the tangles. So. Many. Tangles. Wake up in the morning? Rats-nest. Stormy outside? Snags …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Mecca Cosmetica - To Save Face SPF 30+ Hydrating Facial Sunscreen

Apr/03/2016

Woooo finally a sunscreen that doesn't have that sunscreen-y smell! Instead it has a floral scent and is genuinely nice to have on my face, I loathe strongly scented face products since I find them generally overpowering, but this stuff is lovely.
Texture wise it goes on very smooth and leaves a slight sheen that one may describe as a 'dewy glow'. By the end of the day …

I was sent this lovely oil along with its range-mate the Weekly Facial Scrub as a 'thanks for participating' gift after I had finished a focus session on what natural skincare means to me
~ (I promise this is 100% my own opinion and am not in any way affiliated with the brand, If I hated this product, I would let you know.) ~
I honestly wasn't expecting much, having seen …

Toners - Mario Badescu - Glycolic Acid Toner

Mar/11/2016

I've been using this toner for almost 6 months now (I stuck it out) and I have to say, I'm just not loving it. Sure it talks a big game being all full of glycolic acid (supposedly the heaviest hitter out of all AHA's) but in all honesty, I don't think its really done anything spectacular for my skin. The first few weeks I used it, it would sting like hell after applying it …Read more

Mar/11/2016

My first thought when I purchased this product (from the internet) was a) how much it smells like dishwashing liquid! (Whomp Whomp). My second thought was about how it had leaked a little through its flip up spout-thing and kinda coated the whole bottle in a slightly sudsy mess. I was apprehensive about using it on my face because of the smell but was pleasantly surprised by the results. I use …Read more
