Treatments (Face) - Lancôme - Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum

Had this in a sample and it was amazing. At first it sat on my shelf for ages whilst I used up the other products in the kit (not sure how I feel about HydraZen).
Because I have no idea what’s actually in these haute labels (Lancôme, Chanel, Dior etc), I can never fully trust if things work or not. I had this for ages and didn’t use it for the above reasons. But when I did, wow. It really …

Treatments (Face) - Aesop - Parsley Seed Anti Oxidant Serum (Face)

2.0

I bought the deluxe full kit for $300AUD. I’d heard a lot about the serum and usually have had good experiences with “anti-oxidant” products. This serum doesn’t do much, it sits on top of your skin and even though the assistant said it could be used as a moisturiser alone, I don’t think it can. She did mention it was designed with the more humid-weathered cities in mind such as South East Asian …Read more

Palettes - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light

This palette is high quality, super handy and compact to have in your bag. But the colours do run orange. Not sure whose skin this would suit in orange hues but I still use it as the powder is so fine. I hardly touch the bronzer and the brown blush. I’d like to try MAC mineralization To compare.

Had to think twice about whether I would buy again or not. This very oily and nourishin cream is highly natural, so always worth more for our skin than chemicals. But the oil sits on the surface of your skin. It also smells of the more citronella-end of the citrus scent. The texture is amazing, that’s for sure. For a hand cream it might be ok if 1, you have really dry hands but also 2, you’re …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - NIVEA - Creme

Everyone needs a tin of this in the house. It’s basically a modern day salve- fix gardener’s hands, rub over rough patches in the winter. Help your male/less feminine partner with tough skin that gets neglected. Provide intense (but very surface-oily) moisture to dry hands. Reliable.

Blush - Models Prefer - Highlighter Glitz & Glamour

Best value highlighters out there, made by Models Prefer.
I love this quad because they are hues of rose gold, pink, gold and purple.
The shimmer is also extremely high and reflective, shiny like you see in IG MUA posts.
The other highlighter quads by MP are great but this one is by far the shiniest and "wet" looking metallic glimmer.
Reasonable price …

Toners - Models Prefer - Matte Setting Spray

Fantastic setting spray, great price.
Holds the make up in place and makes me feel more secure heading out with make up on.
Feels very wet to spray (of course) but will dry to a matte finish but not flat matte/dry colourless matte. It will still let your make up shine if your make up is meant to shine/highlight/be dewy.
I will defnitely buy this again.

Best body moisturiser you can get.
Super smooth and easy/fast to apply, great hydration levels.
Great smell.
Not too greasy.
My go to for the last 5+ years and I will continue to buy it.
If I could only choose one body moisturiser to use for the rest of my life, this would definitely be it without a doubt.

Everyone needs one of these in their bathrooms.
I love the Sandalwood one and it seems to suit my skin, the Rose one is ok too but don't expect it to smell like roses such as you'd get from Jurlique.
You must dilute this, dilute dilute and dilute again.
It's a great face wash (super diluted or it will dry you out too much) - it gets all the dirt off your face …

May/18/2017

This is my favourite Micellar water that I've tried.
It is well priced, lasts a long time, doesn't leave a residue, cleans effectively and the smell isn't too overwhelming.
It does a great job and is a great price for what you get.
Very happy with this and will keep using this for a long time.
I have combination skin, olive/medium/Asian skin, occasional …
