I have been a big fan of Moroccan Oil hair masks for years so when it was time for me to purchase a product to add a bit of shine to my hair, I thought that the Moroccan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray would be the perfect choice.

I wish that I had taken some time to read some reviews about this product before purchasing it because it has been a real disappointment and it's not as if it was cheap either!

When it comes to face products, I am one who prefers simplicity. This is mainly because I have had sensitive skin from a young age so I tend to stick to a product for the long term once I find it works. No matter how many skin care products I try, I always keep the Olay Moisturising Lotion in my cupboard for emergencies. If my eczema flares up, it is good to have a backup product that I know that I can trust and use without worrying that you will make my breakout worse. 

I have been a fan of the Olay Moisturising Lotion for years now so I thought that it was time that I shared my thoughts with you.

Hi Beauties! Having run out of my beloved Sukin Cleanser recently, I decided that it was time for a change because I felt that I needed a product to help clear out the pimples that I have been getting around my chin area recently. 

They are under the skin pimples so they aren't red, but show up as bumps underneath the skin so I thought that the best way to start to combat them would be to use a cleanser with exfoliating properties. The product I decided to try is the Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser because it not only exfoliates the skin but also has the added benefit of helping reduce pores.

Hi beauties! Ever since NYX arrived in Australia, there has been so much hype around their products so I couldn't resist but give into temptation and purchase some of their famous Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks from my local Target. I love the fact that lipstick can instantly brighten up your look, so I decided to purchase some beautiful bright shades - Indian Pink (which is a gorgeous coral) and Strawberry Milk (which reminds me of Barbie pink).

When Chemist Warehouse had 50% off cosmetics last month, I could not resist but pick up a few new goodies to try. Lucky for me (or unlucky for my wallet - depending on what way you look at it), my local Chemist Warehouse actually had a lot of stock for the first time ever! So, I ended up purchasing quite a few items - including this Rimmel, Wake Me Up ConcealerI had heard a lot about this particular concealer from YouTube so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

I really love the fact that there are now more and more companies producing locally made products - one of those is Scout Cosmetics that make a whole array of makeup which is cruelty free and made in Australia! (They make nail polish as well and you may recall that I did a review on those last week.)

I was recently given the opportunity to try their mineral lipsticks. Since I have been wearing them on a daily basis for the last couple of weeks, I thought that was ample time for me to be able to form and opinion and share my thoughts with you.

Given how much damage I have inflicted to my hair by constantly bleaching it, I try and stay clear of heat styling tools as much as possible in order to try lessen the damage. That means that during summer, I barely every blow-dry my hair. 

However, in winter it becomes near impossible to do this - I have very thick hair so to let it air dry in winter pretty much guarantees that I will get a cold since it takes forever to air dry. For that reason, I regularly blow-dry my hair during the cold winter months. 

So, when Indola Wonder Blow Dry promised to speed up my blow dry, while providing heat protection, detangling and banishing frizz, I was curious to give it a shot - because, let's face it, what girl doesn't want to spend less time drying their hair?

Hi beauties! Today I thought I would do a quick review of one of my favorite drugstore foundations at the moment. This Revlon colorstay foundation is formulated to work on combination and oily skin so I thought that it was right up my alley given that my t-zone has turned into an oil producing hot spot lately.

This is my first introduction to Scout Cosmetics nail lacquers - and I must admit that I am impressed. Not only are they 100% Australian owned and made but they are also fab quality! 

Scout Cosmetics uses, what they call the '5 free' nail lacquer formula to combine style, rich colours, shine and durability without exposing nails to harmful ingredients like Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor or Parabens.

Hi Beauties! Today I am going to talk about my latest discovery from Schwarzkopf. Given that I am not a natural blonde, I regularly put my hair through a lot in order to get the ash blonde shade that I love - this of course comes at a cost and means that my poor locks are incredibly dry and damaged.

The Keratin Restore Blonde Mask claims to repair internal structure of the hair and strengthen it so I was excited to give it a go and see how well it works for my hair.

Hi beauties! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I definitely did because not only was it my little sister's birthday but my parents came home from their overseas holiday as well. I am sure that we all have those kind of weekends when you are super busy, although the last couple of weeks have been like that too! In all honesty, I have gotten sick of having chipped nail polish and not having the time to do my nails as often as I normally would. When my sister mentioned how much she loved gel nail polish, I decided to try it out since it promised to sort out my chipped polish issue for good!

I decided to purchase the Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Kit from my local Priceline whilst it was on sale last month for around $75.00 - it usually retails at $99.95 so I thought it was a good deal.

Hi beauties! Today I am going to be talking about the latest fragrance by L'Occitane - the Néroli & Orchidée Perfume. If you are like me and like floral fragrances then you will love this latest addition to the L'Occitane collection! It reminds me of beautiful European long summer days - I can already tell that it is going to be a favorite once the weather warms up.
