NUTRIMETICS ULTRA CARE+ PLATINUM INTENSE SKINCARE PROGRAMME


Nutrimetics much anticipated skincare programme has recently been launched with exciting results and I feel extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to give this kit a go.

The Ultra Care+ Platinum Intense Skincare Programme is a powerful skin-boosting system.  The kit contains a Gel Creme and 4 concentrate dropper bottles.  Each concentrate contains luxurious botanicals and advanced technology of powerful active ingredients, for an intensive and rapid skin repair by targeting all signs of ageing for every skin type, at every age.


The Programme contains four different concentrates, each targeting a different skin concern. These powerful skin boosting concentrates deeply penetrate the skin for immediate and long-term results.

1 Detox concentrate
2 Anti-ageing concentrate
3 Anti-pigmentation concentrate 
4 Firming concentrate


This programme is not your typical skincare regime.  There is a specific way to use it to achieve optimum results.  

Every morning and night after cleansing and toning, apply 1 dollop of the Gel creme to palm.  Then add 3 drops of the concentrate.  Mix with your fingertip until creme and serum have combined. Apply over entire face.  Once absorbed, follow with your regular day or night creme.

How to incorporate your four concentrates within your skin routine:

Weeks 1 & 2 for 14 days - Detox concentrate
Weeks 3 & 4 for 14 days - Anti-ageing concentrate
Weeks 5 & 6 for 14 days - Anti-Pigmentation concentrate
Weeks 7 & 8 for 14 days - Firming concentrate


I rigorously followed these instructions every night for 8 weeks. My skin's appearance has improved dramatically.  Skin is smoother and lines appear softer. Complexion is clearer and healthier looking. Pigmentation on the apple of my cheeks have faded, that I no longer wear concealer to hide them.  Even though this routine is definitely different from my regular skin regime, I found it was worth the change based on my results.

The Ultra Care+ Platinum Intense Skincare Programme retails for $250 and is available for purchase on the Nutrimetics website -www.nutrimetics.com.au

REVIEW: IORA NATURALS SKINCARE + TREATMENT FOR ACNE PRONE + PROBLEM SKIN - AUSTRALIAN MADE, ORGANIC & VEGAN FRIENDLY


Last month I received a parcel from Iora Naturals containing a 3-step skincare and treatment pack. Normally I wouldn't be so excited for any type of skincare treatments as my skin is usually pretty good, but just over a month ago my skin had a nervous breakdown, with my rosacea going into overdrive and caused chaos on my face which also affected my eyes! Yes, rosacea can affect the eyes.  I was diagnosed with Blephritis.😭

Being at a loss on what to do with my skin I made an appointment with a skin specialist, but couldn't get an appointment earlier than two months, so receiving this skincare during my wait for the appointment was god-send.  I needed to try anything that could help.

REVIEW: [CERTIFIED ORGANIC] NATURAL PLANT DERIVED TANNING BY DIVINE COMPANY + EXCLUSIVE OFFER


The Divine Company is a premium Australian beauty company that features a collection of products for skin, baby and personal. Based in Northern NSW, all their products are certified Organic and made in Australia.

I was kindly sent two items from their body range to road test and share my thoughts.  The Naturally Bronze Gradual Tan and Exfoliating Body scrub. The gradual tan is 100% natural which helps to moisturise your skin, leaving it feeling nourished and looking naturally tanned. The tan is enriched with Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. 

This isn't a fake tan application but a gradual tan product.  The formula is designed to build colour gradually so it has a more natural appearance.  With any tanning products whether it be gradual or instant, it is always recommended to exfoliate the skin for optimum results.

BRAND FOCUS: MOOGOO NATURAL SKINCARE - PERFECT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY



MooGoo is an Australian natural skincare company. Their entire range is dedicated to making products with natural ingredients that are gentle enough for children and adults that target different skin issues.

I came across this brand quite a few years ago when I was fed up of skincare products for children not doing what they claim. I was introduced to MooGoo by a Pharmacist who swore by this brand as she used it on her kids and ever since then it's been part of our lives.

On recently I discovered that MooGoo also catered for adult skin, when I attended an intimate luncheon for MooGoo/DustyGirls at Porch & Parlour Cafe in North Bondi. They had a selection of products on display, most that I never knew existed!

REVIEW: DR BRONNER'S PURE CASTILE SOAP BAR AND LIQUID SOAP


Dr Bronner's soaps are renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness. A family run business that started 150 years ago in Germany. Dr Bronner's outstanding achievements include pioneering USDA certified organic personal care products, to creating Fair Trade projects across the world that ensure fair and just treatment of farmers and workers, while devoting profits to worthwhile causes and charities worldwide.

Quality soapmaking consists of choosing the right proportions of the right oils. Coconut oil is very high lathering, but can be drying. Olive oil gives a really soft and luxuriant lather, but in small amounts. By using both coconut and olive oils in the right ratio, Dr. Bronner’s unsurpassed soaps offer the best of both worlds: high lather with superb softness on the skin.

To top it off, their soaps also contain hemp and jojoba oils, which mirror the natural oils in the skin’s sebum, thus imparting a wonderful after feel once the soaps are washed away.

REVIEW: ECOSTORE SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER RANGE - CARING FOR YOUR HAIR AND THE ENVIRONMENT


There are lots of things to think about when it comes to haircare and finding the right shampoo and conditioner is one of them. Finding the products for your hair is vitally important as this is the base for anything else you do to your hair like drying and styling and can alter your end results.

Ecostore products are made from plant based ingredients, has no parabens, and is designed to prevent hair breakage by gently cleansing the hair without stripping any unnecessary oils.  Also as there is no silicone, there is no product build up that can cause hair to look limp, dull and unhealthy.

Ecostore products are kind to the environment. Their shampoo and conditioner bottles are made from renewable sugarcane plastic, which is 100% recyclable and helps to reduce our carbon footprint. The ingredients used in their haircare are suitable for our septic tanks. If you have proper grey water systems in place, the wash water from your shower or bath can safely be re-used on your flower gardens, lawns and trees.

The Volumising Shampoo gently cleanses to protect against breakage and replenish fine hair, while building body and shine. The shampoo is transparent and has no colour. It does have a gorgeous natural fragrance of bergamot & orange that is simply divine. It lathers up nicely leaving hair feeling clean without the dry stripped feeling. Hair feels light and incredibly clean.  What's really nice is that my hair had the subtle fragrance of bergamot and orange for two days

The Volumising Conditioner is enriched with Argan and Avocado oils to protect and nourish fine hair, while building body and shine. The conditioner has a thick consistency, conditioning hair leaving it soft and tangle free.

Even though the conditioner is quite thick it didn't leave my hair heavy or limp instead it gave it body without any frizziness.



The Dry, Damaged & Coloured Hair Shampoo formulation uses a unique blend of ingredients to nourish and protect dry or chemically treated hair and help prevent colour fade.  It scent is the same as the other range, orange and bergamot.

I colour my hair every 6 weeks and my hair from mid to ends tends to get quite dry and I can often see split ends forming. The shampoo cleanses leaving scalp felling extremely clean and hair feeling soft even before applying conditioner.  

The Dry, Damaged & Coloured Hair Conditioner has a unique blend of ingredients that help prevent tangles while adding body and shine and providing natural conditioning and protection.

Ensure you apply the conditioner mid to ends as it can be quite heavy for the roots. Hair is left feeling soft and healthy without any loss of body.

My personal tip, as the colouring at the roots is not as harsh as the ends I use both shampoos.  I use the volumising shampoo at the roots and the dry, damaged & colour care shampoo for mid to ends. This way I get the best of both!

Ecostore's shampoo and conditioner's retails all for $10.99 each.  Products are available at Chemist Warehouse, Priceline as well as on their online store shop.ecostore.com.au.

REVIEW: RIMMEL LONDON VITAMIN C BOOST MAKEUP ESSENTIALS

There has been a lot of hype around Rimmel's Vitamin C Foundation and Concealer range and I was super excited to have these land on my desk for review. As a mum and working full-time, being and looking fatigued is a regular part in my life. Hallelujah I say, to products that would fade the fatigue away! I also received the #Insta Fix & Go 2 in 1 setting spray, which is a first for me as I have never used a setting spray before.

BRAND FOCUS: FREESTYLE HAIR WRAP TOWEL + THE DETANGLER BRUSH


I love hair wraps. I have been using them for years. Before discovering hair wraps I used to wrap my hair in a big heavy towel that used to pull my hair as well as constantly fall off. After a visit to the hair salon and winging to my hairdresser, she told me that drying my hair wrapped in a towel causes hair breakage which results in frizz and that I was better off buying a towel turban.  That is when my hair wraps became a permanent part of my hair routine.

EVENT: L'OREAL PARIS COLORISTA HAIR COLOUR LAUNCH


I recently attended the launch for L'oreal's Colorista Innovative Hair Colour Launch which was held at Studio Neon in Redfern.  The creative space was lit in fluoro lighting and by the entrance an artist was painting an enormous canvas which was cool as hell.  On the other end of the floor were beauty stations and a DJ.

It was intriguing watching the artist working with minimal lighting.

BRAND FOCUS: NATURA SIBERICA LUXE BODY + HAIR CARE


I love using natural and organic products on my hair and body.  I love feeling the goodness, the smells and of course seeing and feeling the results.

BRAND FOCUS: QV SKINCARE RANGE - KIDS FACE + BODY


Growing up with three sisters, mum did her best ensuring that whatever products she used on our body was kind to our skin and gentle, especially that one of my sisters and myself suffered from mild eczema. 

Fast forward to today and I'm doing the exact same thing for my family. We are fortunate that we have endless choices of brands to choose from and it takes trial and error until you find the right brand and products for you.  It's simple products need to work with our skin not against us.

I choose QV. I have been using it since my son was born 10 years ago. My son suffers from a mild form of eczema which I've been able to maintain by using products that have been dermatologically tested and are pH balance, fragrance and colour free.

REVIEW: MATT MATT MATT LONG-LASTING LIPGLOSSES BY ESSENCE COSMETICS


Essence Cosmetics have released a range of 'matt matt matt' long-lasting lipglosses. From nudes to brights, these creamy matte formula's are on trend and give luxe brands a run for their money. There's nothing better than scoring a budget lipstick and wowing your friends when you tell them.

Matt matt matt lipglosses are a mousse texture with a velvety matte finish. They are all extremely pigmented, have staying power, and are definitely value for money.


These lipglosses are very lightweight and comfortable on the lips. I was extremely amazed by their creaminess and not overly drying formula as matte lipglosses can feel dry after sometime.  They have a sweet scented formula, I can't pinpoint the exact scent but it reminds me of caramel.


I'm loving their fun names (L to R) - Ready, Set, Impress!, Girl Of Today, Beauty-Approved! and  La Vie Est Belle.


The applicator works great, it's the perfect size, quite stiff and it houses just enough product to cover your lips.


Essence matt matt matt lip glosses retails for $4.95 each. They are available at all Target and Priceline stores. To find out more about the brand or pick up some tips & tricks visit their website here.

REVIEW: GRANTS OF AUSTRALIA NATURAL TOOTHPASTE FOR KIDS

Image source - Grants of Australia

We always want what's best for our kids especially when it comes to personal care, so it makes sense to make sure that whatever we give our children to use that it is safe to use.


Teeth brushing is an important and essential part of his daily routine and when they get to a certain age, I can't always be by their side to ensure that they aren't eating the toothpaste in the process. That is why it is important to me that my son uses products that are natural and do not contain any nasty chemical ingredients.

Grants Toothpaste was established in 1984 and is an Australian family company that provides is an 'all natural' oral care brand. They are certified Australian made and owned. Their Cruelty-Free range utilises all-natural ingredients and does not contain sugar, SLS, colours, parabens or fluoride, instead using a Calcium Carbonate base in Certified Vegan formulas. 


What is also important that children enjoy the flavour, this makes brushing teeth less of a chore and more of fun routine.



Grants of Australia Kids Natural Toothpaste is safe to use for all ages. They are available nationally in selected health stores or online at grantsofaustralia.com.au, nourishedlife.com.au and floraandfauna.com.au.

REVIEW: VIVA ANTI-AGEING SONIC FACIAL CLEANSER BY PURASONIC


I remember the very first facial cleansing system I purchased was battery operated from Neutrogena. You had to attach pads to the velcro. Who remembers these! These were harsh on the skin, stripping all the oils away.  That was 10 years ago.


Since then there has been so many different cleansing systems on the market but only a few stand out. I have used around 4 different systems and have to say this is my favourite thus far. It's small and compact, gentle on the skin and easy to pack when travelling. 

PuraSonic ViVA is a daily facial cleansing system. It works similar to an electric toothbrush, with it's oscillating brush head cleansing and gently exfoliating the skin. It gives you a cleaner, smoother experience without stripping natural oils or irritating the skin.

The PuraSonic ViVA kit includes - a sonic facial cleanser, a gentle brush head, charging dock and USB cord, USB wall charger and user manual.


As cleansing our face is the most important step in our daily skincare routine, it is extremely important to ensure that all makeup, dirt and sebum is removed properly as this leads to congested skin, break-outs and a dullness complexion.

We can look in the mirror and think that we have washed our faces properly but what the eyes can't see is what could be the root of most skin problems.


This powerful cleansing device utilises sonic frequency to cleanse your skin in just 60 seconds and gentle enough for everyday use. It effectively removes dirt and impurities that are otherwise left behind by manual cleansing.

The ViVA's oscillations work within the skin's natural elasticity, gently massaging pores back and forth to help dislodge trapped make-up, dirt and debris.


How to Use
The ViVA is waterproof, so it's safe to use in the shower.  It is pre-programmed to offer a one minute cleansing program that consists of 20 seconds on the forehead, 20 seconds on the nose/chin and 10 seconds on each cheek.

The ViVA will briefly pause to indicate when it is time to move to the next position on your face, how smart is that!  It will then switch off when the minute is up.


For effective cleaning wet the brush head and your skin with warm water and then apply the cleanser on the brush head. Make sure you do not press the brush too hard against your skin as this will limit motion effectiveness.


There are two speeds. Use the right button with two arrows to change the sonic action of the brush head to your desired speed. It is recommended to start on the 'Gentle' setting for the first week. Once you are confident using your device and your skin has become used to using the sonic cleansing action, you can increase the speed to 'deep cleanse' mode and you can then graduate to a firmer brush head.


The brush head is simple to remove. Firmly grab the brush head under the base and lift it up from one side and it will click off. It is recommended that brush heads be replaced every three months.

Brush heads retail for $9.95 each, and there are three types - Gentle, Everyday and Deep Cleanse.

The ViVA comes in three colours - Midnight, Rosa & Satin. It retails for $69 and are available to purchase online at www.purabeaute.com.au. For stockists call (07) 5564 6767 or visit their website at www.purabeaute.com.au.

REVIEW: RIMMEL LONDON SCANDAL’EYES + BROW THIS WAY NEW RELEASES


Rimmel London have released some excited new products featuring eyes and brows! From reformulating Brow this Way to revolutionising Scandal'Eyes Bold Liner with a precise ball-tip applicator, it's no wonder there is so much excited in the air.  I want to share these three products I received to review.


Brow This Way with Argan Oil Brow Gel - RRP $12.95
I love brow gels especially when they work a dream. I have thick coarse eyebrow hairs and they need to be tamed, but some brow gels can be too sticky or thick and separate the hairs giving it the obvious gel look.



WHATS NEW!
Infused with Argan Oil, it made sense to add it to brow products since it's commonly found in haircare products. Perfect for taming those unruly rebellious hairs with a natural result.

I love the new formula and brush. The brush applicator is slightly different from the original one. It has a more tapered shape making it easier to tame and shape brows. My brow holds nicely without looking spiky and separated. Only takes a few seconds to dry.


It's lightweight, long-lasting formula is smudge-proof and fade-proof, perfect for all-day regardless of weather. Comes in three shades - Blonde, Mid Brown, Dark Brown and transparent gel.



Scandal'Eyes Bold Flick Liner - RRP $13.95
This waterproof liner comes with a ball tip applicator. It's long-lasting and fade-proof, staying on the eyes for more than 24 hours without smudging.


First impressions - surprised at the shape and round ball-like tip. This one took a bit of getting used to. I wasn't sure how to use the liner with the ball tip and whether it would be easier or more difficult to apply. I was able to achieve a nice graphic line using just one swipe. It was so easy. I love the feel of this liner because it helps to draw the line much easier that a normal liner.


It is formulated with rich black pigments, with maximum colour intensity and a high-shine glossy finish.



Scandal'Eyes Reloaded Waterproof Mascara - RRP $17.95
I love Rimmel mascaras.  I think I own the entire range.  This one is no exception.  One coat is enough to give me lush long lashes without the over applied look. 


Perfect for those hot and humid days when half my makeup falls off!  If you want to go for an afternoon dip and you don't want to come out of the water with your mascara half way down your face, this is the mascara to wear.  It is waterproof with no smudge or flaking and comes off easily with waterproof makeup remover.

The brush head has a tapered design to allow each lash to be coated evenly, giving the volume our eyes need to stand out.


It was so easy to complete to apply the liner.  Images below show all three items used. I used Brow This Way in Clear.  I know I need to tidy up the brow area!


The eye liner was super easy and for me that's a huge plus as I tend to avoid applying liquid liner due to my disaster history in applying.   The mascara has two coats and there is no clumping.


Overall, I am pretty impressed with these new releases.  What's your favourite favourite Rimmel product?


Rimmel London is available at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Kmart, Big W, selected pharmacies, Coles and Woolworths. For more information visit Rimmel's website here.
