I'm sunscreen obsessed - and it's been a journey to find the right sunscreen for my skin: what works well with my skin tone, what can manage my combination/occasionally dehydrated and sensitised skin, what works nicely under makeup but equally, what makes my skin look pretty good without makeup.

This is not it - I mean Ultraceuticals is my go to for everyday without fail …

Vitamin C serum is an essential product in my skin care regimen - you know, if you're packing minimal and whittling down your products to ESSENTIALS ONLY, Vitamin C is getting on that plane with me every time. I have tried a few: Ultraceuticals (too gel-like), The Ordinary (ok - dries sticky though), Obagi (amazing - not stocked by my beauty therapist anymore) and I have come to the …Read more

I love me a good masque, and I do love the ethos of NIOD/Deciem/The Ordinary. However, i immodestly dislike this masque.

I have given it a medium rating for price and packaging - I think both a fairly reasonable, the bottle isn't huge but you really only need a small amount to get full face coverage. So in that respect, it's decent.

The packaging does advise that …

BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - The base LB Cream by Lara Bingle

Apr/02/2016

This stuff is AMAZING - it's really presented as a tinted moisturiser, BB, CC cream, whatever the latest thing is. I feel like, now that I'm spending so much time and effort constantly chemically peeling and omniluxing, I shouldn't hide my skin under thick layer of foundation. So I've definitely shifted to more sheer products that can enhance my skin appearance …Read more

Sep/04/2015

This product is a-mazing; it is economical, it's not a huge stick, but I can get away with only using 3 swipes per cheek, 2 on my forehead and 1 per nose and chin, then I just blend with my fingers. Literally takes 15 seconds and looks flawless.

I had anticipated it might feel heavy and look caked on - far from it, it feels feather light and looks flawless. FLAWLESS!!!!!! I do …

Jan/04/2015

I had high hopes for this - given the price and all the hoo-ha about the artisan water and sauv blanc grapes it contains. However, it was a big fat nothing.

Felt ok going on, didn't particularly glide of feel softening, but then that's water for you - not in the least hydrating when applied topically. Used 2 x daily for 4 weeks but at the end i noted absolutely no …

Jul/23/2014

I really love this product. It's extremely versatile; can be used as a toner or as a hydrating spritz during the day (particularly in my air conditioned office). I use it, without fail, morning and night post toner prior to oils, then post oils prior to moisturiser, then sometimes again right before bed just for the heck of it.

It is light, pleasant smelling, cheap and …

This mascara is nothing special - yep, it darkens lashes and if that's all you're after, then this is your bag. However, you could always save $5 and go for Covergirl Mascara and get a product that thickens and enhances your lashes too.

Boom. Saved you time and money - you can thank me later.

I'm not sure I've ever given a full 5 lippies in all 3 catergories before - I'd have to go and check and right now i can't be bothered, since I am dying to tell you how amazing this stuff is!!!!!

So, i have shoulder length, fine hair - full process along the bottom panel and foils through the top half every 4-5 weeks, so my hair is being hammered a bit. It's …

Right after I post this review I am going to email all my girlfriends and tell them to go get a tube of this stuff - it is so amazing that I would stake relationships on it.

My skin is combination but dehydrated and prone to hormonal breakouts along the jawline, it's also a bit sensitive, could there be a worse combination? Anyone who has the same skin will know how hard it is to …
