This is quite possibly the most eclectic mix of monthly favourites I’ve ever done… (Shrugs shoulders). (more…)
Who hijacked March? Where did it go? I missed it! Here’s my (very random) assortment of beauty and foodie goodies I gave a good bash in February. Note, I would have put Vaseline Spray On Moisturiser and Avo Smash in here as firm favourites, but I’ve already raved about both of these (has anyone tried my Avo Smash recipe yet?) These two loves aside, here’s what else has been spinning my wheels lately.
Avon A-F33 Pro-Line Corrector Treatment – I’ve already raved about the Hydrating Cream from this range. Now I’m in love with the pro-line corrector treatment that my friend Toni thrust at me. “Try this” she said. Um, Toni, can I grab your bank account number? Coz you’re not getting this back, sorry. For the past two weeks I’ve smoothed this lightweight gel-lotion over my face and neck morning and night after toning (and before moisturising). Already I’ve noticed a visible reduction in fine lines and I swear the deep groove that runs through the centre of my forehead has diminished. Looks like Avon’s claim that the A-F33 molecule helps stimulate collagen carries some weight… I can see why this product has won a lot of beauty awards. Now I want my eye cream to run out so I can get A-F33’s offering.
Price: $60 for 30ml from your local Avon lady. (more…)
March? Seriously? Already? That zoomed past! Here’s a round up of beauty foodie favourites that pumped up my tyres in February. (more…)
Here’s my beauty and foodie favourites from January… There’s a few!
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Nude Eyeliner – Eek, what’s with the long product names? My super thoughtful friend lovely Caron sent me this from Aussie after reading my whinge in a blog post that Rimmel doesn’t sell this eyeliner shade in NZ (Kiwis: But we can get it online). I know what you are thinking… “Why the heck do you use a nude eyeliner for??” To wake up tired eyes, that’s why! You know when you are tired and the rims of your eyes go red? Well, run a nude colour eyeliner on the waterline (i.e. your inner eye rim) and you are sorted: The red is neutralised back to ‘flesh colour’. Because this pencil is waterproof it will last a lot longer on that part of your eye (‘coz it’s slightly damp). Genius. You can, incidentally, use a white eyeliner, but a nude shade is so much more natural looking. Rimmel NZ: Please start stocking this shade! Here’s a photo of me (right) wearing this eyeliner on my waterline.
Price: NZ$9 (from ASOS with free postage)
Here’s a round-up of my favourite beauty foodie things for December! (more…)
Here’s the goodies I was loving last month… (more…)
Here’s five inexpensive and affordable makeup products that are all tried and tested and are now staples in my makeup kit. In NZ (and Aussie) makeup costs a fortune due to the huge costs associated with transporting it into Paradise. So I’m insatiable with my quest for beauty bargains!
I’m often asked which products I can’t live without. That’s actually quite easy! To pick just one of these though – now that would be
tough impossible! Here’s my favourite five makeup essentials, products I’d never want to be without! … (more…)
