The Botanic Alchemist Exfoliating Powder + Masque Review

When it comes to testing out and writing about new skincare, my favourite products are always masks and exfoliators. So when I came across this product from The Botanic Alchemist, I got even more excited as it is a 2-in-1 product, and I love nothing more than a product that multitasks! The Botanic Alchemist is a fairly new brand to…

My Natural Skincare Collection

I’m so happy that you all seemed to enjoy my natural makeup collection video! Here is the second part that I mentioned which is my skincare collection.  Skincare is something I’m trying to streamline a little. I’m guilty of ending up with far too many products that essentially do the same thing, so in this video I’m also having a bit…

The New Year Skin Detox

I always love the start of a new year. While it’s really just another day, it always feels like a new, fresh start, and it’s the perfect time to outline some things in my life that I’d like to improve. Of course, we shouldn’t just wait until a new year to make life changes, but it really is the perfect…

Best of Beauty 2017

Every year for the past couple of years now, I’ve done a “Best of Beauty” post, sharing my fave beauty finds from the year (you can check out my 2016 one here). You all seem to really like these posts, so I figured I’d do another one this year too. All five of these beauty products were ones I discovered…

Vestige Verdant Skincare – Luxury Natural Skincare #ad

Vestige Verdant is a new luxury skincare brand to hit New Zealand and Australian shores. Hailing from Estonia, this brand has quickly become international and is now popular throughout the UK, France, Germany, and the Middle East. Vestige Verdant skincare is marketed as organic and cruelty free which means it gets the tick from me. The Vestige Verdant packaging is…

Eco Tan Invisible Tan Review

There’s been a few days lately that I’ve had my shorts on, and it’s made me realise that boy oh boy my legs are pale! Of course while there is nothing wrong with being pale (and I often embrace it!), I do like a little bit of colour on my skin, especially on my legs. A slight tan helps to…

Trilogy Cleansing Balm Review

If you were a reader of my old blog, then you will remember how much I loved the brand Trilogy. It’s one of New Zealand’s most well-known and well regarded skincare brands, and for good reason too. I used to use a lot of their products, and recently re-discovered my love for the brand through this, the Trilogy Makeup Be…

Empties – Would I Repurchase?

I’ve been wanting to write an empties post for a while now, but had only had a couple of bits here and there I had finished. I swear I’ve run out of nearly everything recently, so I’ve got lots of products to share with you today. Personally, I love empties posts as they show what people really think of products…

Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask: First Impressions

Quite possibly one of the most exciting beauty releases that’s come my way lately is the new Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask. Reminiscent of a welders mask, this sunglasses style mask contains LED lights which work to help reduce acne and also improve the texture of the skin. Just a 10 minute session each day is all you need, and…

Does Dairy Free Help Acne?

It’s been over two months since I committed to a full dairy-free diet. For the most part, sticking to the dairy free diet has been really easy. I’ve become obsessed with plant milk and coconut yoghurt, and I haven’t had a bit of my beloved Whittakers Creamy Milk in over two months. I sort of missed chocolate at the start, and…
