WELEDA

100% Certified Natural
Since 1921

http://www.weleda.com.au

Weleda have been around for nearly 100 years, so needless to say they really know their stuff when
it comes to skincare and other household, beauty products!

With a range from facial, skincare, oral health, deodorants and body oils to men's skincare, natural
medicine, hair care and a mother and baby range. Weleda have had a long time to think of the needs
of everyone, and they really have done it all.

If you're looking to jump on that all natural, cruelty free, ethically sourced product band wagon of
products for you and your family, then you have come to the right place. Weleda is all that and more.

Click below to hear my thoughts about Weleda and some of my new and favourite products from them!
(Like, comment & subscribe!)

Weleda Skin Food ($22.95 / 75ml)
When it comes to all rounder multi-use products which pretty much do it all. They are hard to come
by especially the really good ones. I can safely and confidently say Skin Food is definitely on of those
absolute winners!

Skin Food is packed full of all natural goodness which is fabulous for especially dry and even
sensitive or ageing skin. It is high is it's moisturising qualities and quenches you skin's thirst like a
dream. Can be used all over the body to smooth rough dry skin. I have been using this on my hands
lately as they have become SO dry over winter and were beginning to split the skin between my
thumb and fore fingers. :(

This is great for both men and women too. My husband has his own tube of this in the bathroom
and using this as his facial moisturiser daily. He has super dry skin which even gets flaky, but when
he uses Skin Food, it keeps his skin looking soft and flake free all day!

Weleda Firming Day Cream ($41.95)
I love changing up my skincare routine as often as I can and lately I have been using this Firming
Day Cream (along with the matching Night Cream below) and what I treat it has been!

This day cream is made for Mature Skin... to be honest, being almost 35, I'm not sure if my skin
really falls into this category just yet, maybe it does, who knows? Regardless of the rules, I have
just been loving this product!

With it's blend of delicious pomegranate seed oil and a bunch of natural oils from argan kernels &
macadamia nuts which work together to activate your skin's regeneration, soothes and protects the
skin. Firms and reduces fine lines, improves skin elasticity and smells so good as well!

Suitable for all skin types!

Weleda Firming Night Cream ($41.95)
There's nothing like that freeing feeling after a long day of work, coming home to a piping long hot
shower, removing the day's makeup and applying a generous layer of nourishing, soothing and
calmly scented night cream to get you relaxed for the evening. It is seriously one of my favourite
things and by far my most favourite time of the day!

Again, this product contains oils from one of my fav fruits, the pomegranate as well as borage seeds,
and argan kernels. It also has golden millet which aids in the skin's regeneration, helping us age
gracefully and helping our skin turn over new young cells, keeping our skin strong and protected.

Over the past year to two years I have felt like my skin has lost some of that firmness and elasticity,
particularly on my cheeks and upper neck under my chin. So finding a firming skincare duo I can
use morning and night I feel like it just perfect for me right now!

Weleda Age Revitalising Hand Cream ($18.95)
Going back to the beginning of this blog article to where I mentioned using Skin Food as my hand
cream. I also keep this one in my handbag at all times and use it multiple times throughout the day
whilst I am either at work or out and about doing everyday mum things!

Designed for mature skin, again it can't hurt right? Sometimes I feel like in general if a product is
designed for more mature skin, then it will probably work harder at anti-ageing my skin before it
really begins to look tired and worn out.

With a blend of primrose oil from the beautiful evening primrose flower, the oil works to get rid of
those dry rough spots on your hands which I have been getting on the tips of my fingers lately! It
also has oils from macadamia nuts to protect the skin sealing in the moisture into the skin for softer,
hydrated hands. There is also something in there called Centella which stimulates the collagen in
your skin which to be honest, I had never even thought about collagen in my skin past my face
before. So there is something to think about!

Weleda Citrus Deodorant ($21.95) & Weleda Citrus Roll-On Deodorant ($16.95)
If ever there is a deodorant scent, the citrus from lemon makes the most sense to me. Not only does
lemon smell super zesty and refreshing and clean. It's also a natural antiseptic which neutralises body
odours naturally without blocking your pores. It also doesn't contain any nasty chemicals a lot of
deodorants have in them including aluminium salts!

I have used other natural deodorants before with not many being all that effective. I have found
Weleda's Citrus roll-on deodorant in particular to be really good at keeping me fresh throughout the
day.  The roll-on provides 24hr protection however I only use it for about 10-12 hours before
showering again, so I can't say if it does last that long, but it does seem to last me the day no worries.

Weleda's citrus deodorant in the larger glass spray bottle is my favourite in term on packaging. Even
though it is glass, so I wouldn't carry this around with my in my handbag, it is a really nice product to
have at home to use throughout the day. I also love to use this as an air freshener throughout my
house. Particularly in my laundry where I have the cat's kitty litter tray and the bathrooms. It just
gives the rooms a lovely fresh boost, it's great!!

Weleda Salt Toothpaste ($9.95)
Just the name of this product sounds so cool to me! A salt toothpaste? That certainly is unique!
When you think about it though it makes perfect sense. The tiny salt particles work to gently buff
away the build up of plaque and tartar on your teeth giving them a good clean. Kind of like an
exfoliation on the skin, this works the same way only on the teeth. I love this idea, I think it is
genius!

You can rest assured this product is completely safe and effective for daily use as it was made
together with actual dentists. It doesn't contain any harmful chemicals like bleach, detergents or
preservatives. (It has enough salt in it for preservation).  It also does not contain fluoride.

The formula of this toothpaste does look a little weird. Reminds me of blended up red grapes. But it
does actually have a minty taste and scent to it, so it still feels much the same as any other toothpaste
you would normally use. I am absolutely LOVING this!

Weleda Children's Tooth Gel ($7.95)
When it comes to my kids and I am sure most parents are the same, you want what is safest and best
for them no matter the cost. Regardless, this children's tooth gel is completely affordable anyway,
which just makes it all the more appealing!

The pale blue formula contains no nasties, colourants, mineral oils or flavour enhances. It is naturally
flavoured with minty spearmint and fennel. It has calendula flower extract for healthy gums and silica
keeps teeth clean. My kids didn't even noticed I'd changed their toothpaste for a few days and then
they decided it was alright and gave me the OK to brush their teeth with it! Cheeky little
independents!

Again as with all Weleda oral care products, this product has been developed with dentists to ensure
safety and effectiveness for the health and wellbeing of you and your family.

Weleda Kids 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash
This product is so cute and one of the newest range of products by Weleda. (They really do think of
everything!).  Available in Lively Lime, Very Vanilla & Happy Orange. How cute is the packaging?!
My kids just love the little hippo on the front of the tube having his own little bath just like them!

As a mother, this 2-in-1 product is great because it makes bath time quicker and easier. The more kids
you have the longer bath time takes. So having a multi-use product is what I look for. The fact it is
also 100% certified natural and gentle on little bodies and doesn't sting the eyes is a great bonus!

You don't need a lot to wash little kids hair and as I wash their hair because it's a 2-in-1 product as the
formula drips down from their hair onto their skin they can wash themselves as I'm washing their hair
with the same product! Saves time and money because the suds from the hair also wash the body!

The lime scent is really refreshing and a creamy white colour. My kids really enjoy using this, next I
would love to try the Very Vanilla (Even for myself!) as that is such a calming scent and one of my
absolute favourites! Vegan and cruelty free, that is what I like to see!

Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream ($14.36)
Yes, I know this is a product designed for baby's skin, however I have to admit I couldn't resist
giving this a try for myself as well! What drove me to want to try this the most was actually the
creamy soft scent of the Calendula. It is slightly vanillary and lightly floral which as I mentioned
above is my weakness when it comes to scents. It smells absolutely gorgeous!

I don't think I have ever seen or heard of a facial care product especially just for babies. But when
you think about it, it is pretty clever. Babies have beautiful new born skin, yes. But it is also brand
new to our world. It isn't yet used to the polluted air, wind, air conditioning, etc. Babies skin can be
easily irritated and needs protecting as it adjusts and grows.

This facial cream is ultra soothing and great if you notice dry patches on your babies skin. I have
been using it on my and my 6yr old daughters face and it is so nice to bond together as girls
putting on our day creams together.

If you're keen to try some Weleda for yourself you can buy directly from their website online.
You can also find them online on a wide variety of websites. See them here!

If you prefer to shop in store Weleda is available at your local David Jones, some pharmacies and
selected health food stores. Find a stockist in your area here!

BOURJOIS HEALTY MIX

https://www.banggood.com/ECUBEE-Hand-Spinner-Chargeable-Music-LED-Fidget-Spinner-Finger-Focus-Reduce-Stress-Gadget-p-1153218.html

BOURJOIS PARIS

Healthy Mix Foundation & Concealer
(New Formula!) 

Review!

I have recently been trying out this foundation and concealer in the Bourjois new and improved "Healthy Mix" anti-fatigue formulation for everyday use for a few months now. I have never used a Bourjois foundation or concealer before however I have heard a lot of hype and positive reviews on the original formula of this foundation over the years so I was very keen to
get starting using this!
I have the foundation shade in number #52-Vanilla which is a pretty good match for my skin tone. I feel like I could maybe go one or even just half a shade darker though because this foundation is quite light on the coverage and this shade is quite light in shade as well. I tend to mix it with one of my other darker foundations in the meantime and it seems to be working well enough. :)
The pump style bottle is one of my favs in terms of foundation bottle designs. It is the easiest and quickest way to use foundation and minimises the mess and excess product wastage as well. The finish has a nice dewy glow without being too shiny and lasts throughout the day really well even though the coverage is on the lighter side.
I am sometimes off at work for up to ten hours a day at the moment and this still looks alright when I get home at night!
If your skin usually gets a bit oily though out the day then I would suggest you might need touching up with some power or blotting papers throughout the day, otherwise you should be alright.
When a foundation does more than just cover my face like this one going the extra mile with it's "mix" of vitamins including C, E and B5 than that's a great bonus and makes me feel good wearing it!
If you're after a light weight everyday foundation in both feeling and coverage that looks youthful, glowy and natural than this one might be for you. In my opinion I think this would make a great first foundation for young girls or for those who like to keep it natural, light and simple for day to day use.

This concealer is also quite light coverage in terms of hiding blemishes and pores. It does highlight well especially under the eyes though and makes a good contouring highlight without the shiny sparkle of some illuminators which when you're going for a fuss free everyday work look you don't really want.
I have this in the shade number #51-Clair Light. This matches well with the foundation above, again perfect for those with very light skin tones. If I purchased this in the future I would go one darker with the foundation, but stay with this concealer shade. 
The packaging is simple, clean and easy to use. The formula isn't too thick or runny, but just the right consistency to apply and blend with the doe foot applicator.
Overall I would say this is a good budget friendly, day to day concealer which would be ideal for those with good skin without many flaws as it is too light to cover big blemishes, pores or dark circles. A fair price though and a product which I am happy to continue to use on a day to day basis for work, running errands on the weekends and spending time with the kids.
Together this due is nice and simple. It doesn't appear cakey or heavy and lasts throughout my long days as a working mum.


You can pick up your Boujois Healthy Mix foundation and concealer from Priceline for currenly
RRP $20.30 (Foundation) 30% off!RRP $14.00 (Concealer) 30% off!

BULK EMPTIES


MEGA BULK EMPTIES!

So I haven't posted an empties in about a year after being so on point each month
for my first two years of blogging! My apologies! Life just keeps getting busier and busier as my
daughter has began school this year and I have finally gone back to work! Still, blogging is my
passion and I will continue to post as often as I can spare a selfish few minutes and indulge in my
guilty pleasure that is makeup, skincare, fashion, decor and anything within those realms.

So here we are with a bulk lot. It's actually two lots of empties all rolled into one as I took these pix
and then haven't had the chance to blog about them in ages! I also have another bin load of empties
sitting under my bathroom sink ready to be photographed for the next empties post I do! Until then
I will keep on adding to it and hopefully post it up when there is a decent amount of things to talk about!


L'Oreal Paris Preference Blonde Platinum x2
Since going back to blonde from my natural dark brown, I decided to try a few different brands and
products to try and get that lovely white shade like on the box, however as always my hair takes forever
to get to that shade and after using this is turned more of a brassy orange and so toner is my new best
friend!

Papulex Soap Free Cleansing Gel
This stuff I decided to use up as I'd had it in my bathroom stash for a few years and as cleansers go,
even cleansing twice a day takes at least a few months to use up and in between trying a bucket load of
other cleansers this one got shoved to the side and forgotten about. Was a good gel cleanser though and
kept my skin nice and clear.

Oral-B Pro Health Toothpaste
This particular toothpaste has been a favourite of mine for over a year now. It's one I keep going
back to and find myself re-purchasing. It has a good taste and I like the way it feels in my mouth.

Palmolive Shampoo & Conditioner Aloe Vera & Fruit Vitamins (Sachets)
It's always difficult to get a well rounded feel for products when it come to trying out a single
sachet. However these were surprisingly generous and gave me a decent amount for a single hair
wash. They had a nice scent about them and made my hair soft.

Colgate Dental Floss
Whenever I try a new dental floss it's either hit or miss. I find some to be too thick and hard to get
between the gaps and others fray and are of poor quality. This little mini is by far one of the best!
So easy to use and cut off the amount you need for each use. It doesn't hurt or cause tension, it
just does the job right and it a good handbag or travel size.

Hi Lift Powder Bleach For Hair
Since lightening my hair again I have been touching up my roots a lot at home with this stuff. This
product is very familiar to me as I used to use it years ago in my early 20's when I first began
bleaching my hair. It is brilliantly strong a lightening my super dark hair. Love it!

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation (Sample)
Rimmel do fantastic foundations for such an affordable price. I love their formulas and this one is no
exception! This sample was my first taste of the Match Perfection formula and since I accumulated
all these empties up over quite a period of time, I have since finished up two full sized bottles of this
stuff! Highly recommend!


Real-U Lite Moisturiser
Moisturising is something I always
do and this winter has been
especially harsh on my skin. This
moisturiser is so light weight feeling
and really feels as though it soaks in
deeply leaving my skin lovely and
soft.

Good Things Manuka Honey
I love honey in beauty products! The
scent is always so delicious and
calming. Manuka honey is also
delicious to eat and much richer in
colour and taste than regular honey.
This moisturiser is just gorgeous, I
loved it!

Heathcote & Ivory Bath & Body Body Butter
This was a little tub of moisturiser I received in a gift pack at Christmas. It was alright, to be honest,
there wasn't a lot inside the tub and there wasn't really much of a scent at all. Oh well.

Hi Lift Blonde Highlighter Powder Bleach For Hair
This is the same as mentioned above, just in a single use sachet packet. Must've bought this when
I was too poor to buy a big tub. haha!

Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Body Cream
I have used a few Nuxe products before and am liking them the more I use them. This was a lovely
product to use, especially on these cold winter night when I can actually see the scales on my dry
skin. Especially on my legs and the tops of my feet! >_< This sure fixed that!

Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Cream
Another brand which is a joy to use. Anything with Rose in it I am going to love. This body cream
didn't last long enough for me in this tiny sachet unfortunately. I like to moisturise head to toe and
this only got as far as my legs. Felt really nice though and didn't feel greasy or slimy like some body
creams tend to do.

V 10 Plus LX Advanced Lifting Cream Treatment
I can't honestly say I saw any difference after using this product. But it seemed nice enough. When
it comes to anti-ageing I'll try just about anything and cross my fingers it's doing something for me.
It can't hurt to try right? Let me know if you've tried this and if it's worth me purchasing it full size
as this is quite a pricey little brand so it had want to be amazing!


Elegant Touch French Manicure #102
I purchased these to treat myself a while ago.
I don't often get my nails done or even have
time to paint them these days honestly. I
bought these because I wanted my nails to
like nice and polished without chipping or
looking messy after a day or two. These
were just your regular french mani. Classic
and easy. I loved them!

Woolworths Select Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover
Nothing fancy here. Cheap and gets the job
done without fuss. No issues with this at all.
Have re-purchased many times.




Dove Beauty Cream Bar x 2
Used this a billion times before and will continue to do so. Dove is so well known with a great
reputation for it's hydration and creamy quality. It's like a soap and moisturiser in one. Almost.
I do still moisturiser afterwards, however if you're someone who isn't into lathering up on the cream
but don't like having dry skin, then switching over to a moisturising soap like this one would be a
great idea!

Palmolive Foaming Fig & Coconut Hand Wash
What an inspiring and unique scent this one was! I have never smelt fig and coconut together before
and let me tell you it is good! The sweet fig is mellowed out slightly with the cream coconut and
together they just seem to balance each other out really well! So foamy and fresh, I loved this!

MOR Pepperberry & Pomegranate Hand & Body Wash
I loved the skinny pump on this bottle as it made me use less each time and in turn made it last
much longer. This was a delicious yummy scent, sweet and a little zesty at the same time. MOR is
such a beautiful brand and their packaging always adds a touch of elegance and luxe to my bathroom.

Lush FUN Monsters & Aliens
This only lasted about a week! I got this for my toddlers to use in the bath for something new and fun
and they LOVED it! They loved the bright colours, the pretty smell of it and how it made colourful
suds when they washed themselves with it. It was also great to play with moulding into endless
shapes and things. Highly recommended if you have kids to bath. It'll keep them from getting bored
and fighting with each other, at least for a few minutes!


Puretopia Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub
Loved this scrub. You can read my full review on it here. Not too harsh or gentle, kept my skin clear 
and looking and feeling fresh. Such a lovely brand I recommend checking out if you get the chance.

Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub
Have also fully reviewed this product over here. This scrub is amazing, honestly I really loved this
and it lasted ages! (This was also my second tube!) Great at keeping zits under control and smelt 
yum!

I purchased this glue in a rush one day as I realised annoyingly that my regular lash glue, (You know
the teeny tiny bottle you get in the box with your falsies?) had completely dried up before I'd even 
ever opened or used it! Figured there had to be something bigger and better I could use, and found
this one for a reasonable price compared to the others around it on the shelf. Works pretty well, no
complaints, gets the job done and that's all I really care about at the end of the day.

This spot treatment reminded me as being really similar to the Garnier one which I have used and
loved for years! This lasted me forever because you seriously only need to use the tiniest amount
to cover your spot and it also tightens your pores! When I felt like my skin was looking a bit yuk and
my pores were too big I would apply a thin layer of this all over my face and sleep with it on over
night as you would with a night serum. Upon waking up in the morning my zits were almost gone
and my pores were definitely smaller!


Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Leave in Hair Moisturiser
This is one of those products I found in the back of my cupboard when I was packing to move back 
late last year! God knows how long it was hiding away there but I have since made sure to use it up
quickly! It was ok, not anything major to rave about. But I always put some kind of hair treatment
in at least weekly so I'm not too fussed about the brand or anything. I just use anything and hope for
the best! Had a pretty smell though. 

Speaking of scents, now this shampoo is delicious and smells just like green apple! I actually really
liked this shampoo, it's just a shame I am not a fan of the pretty basic boring packaging. The hubby is
more inclined to use this brand than me as it also helps with his flakey, dry scalp.

RIMMEL LONDON

RIMMEL LONDON

NEW!
 Wake Me Up Foundation & Concealer!


Let's be honest, putting on my makeup each morning is one of the highlights of my busy day. It's a
 few minutes each day where it's all about me. I like to take this time to relax and enjoy the process of
pampering, thinking about the day ahead, getting my thoughts together as I wake up. It's really quite
therapeutic for me. 

Rimmel London's classic Wake Me Up foundation has recently undergone a makeover and I have 
found myself reaching for it over all of my other foundations every single day over the past month
or so that I have just about finished them up!


Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation - Fine shimmer particles visible through the bottle!
(Purrdy!)

I will begin with the foundation which contains Vitamin C, SPF 20 as well as some hella beautiful
radiance pearls mixed inside it! It comes in six shade varieties - (Ivory, True Ivory, Soft Beige, 
Classic Beige, True Nude and Natural Beige), an easy to use pump style clear glass bottle and
 promises a radiant glow to the skin making it appear more awake and anti-fatigued.

The formula is a good consistency being not too thick now runny. It just sits on the back of my hand
when I pump it out and doesn't drip or begin running down my arm before I can get a makeup brush
onto it! It blends easily and smooth on my skin. It covers my pores, however not my larger ones and
you can still see a little acne scaring after application. So I would say this foundation gives about a
medium coverage. It does look super flattering, natural and dewy though and does an impressive job
at lasting all day! Honestly, this is one of the best foundations I have found in terms of being long
lasting. It stays put amazingly well even on my longer 7am-5pm work days. 

Rimmel London Wake Me up Foundation & Concealer Swatched!
(Left - Concealer / Right - Foundation)

The contrast between the swatches of the above foundation and concealer is appearing much more
dramatic than it actually is in real life. My skin is not fair, but still quite light. What you can see in
the image with the shimmer in it is much more it's true to life shade. But anyway, let's get talking
about the new Wake Me Up Concealer!

Available in just three shades - Ivory, Classic Beige and Soft Beige. I would like to see a wider
variety of shades available, however the lightest Ivory shade does get the job done for me.

The consistency is only just slightly thicker than the foundation and conceals any redness, veins,
small blemishes and pores well. It is smooth and blends with ease. I have enjoyed using this duo
together as they seem to compliment each other well with their fatigue concealing and illuminating
glow particles.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation & Concealer swatches blended.

You can find Rimmel London's new Wake Me Up Foundation & Concealer and the rest of the 
Rimmel range from your local Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Big W, Coles, Target and
Woolworths.

PLATINUM MAKEUP BRUSHES


INTRODUCING...

NEW!

- PLATINUM MAKEUP BRUSHES -

http://www.platinumbeauty.com.au

So you probably own at least one set of makeup brushes. You have your favourites, you know those
3 or 4 you reach for every single time you put on your makeup? How great are the quality of your
brushes though? Could be better? Softer? Less hairs falling out of them? I know personally for me
that stray hair which falls out of my blush brush every! single! day! I could definitely live without!

Using a fresh, clean, brand new makeup brush is always a nice feeling and if you're after that kind of
satisfaction in your daily makeup routine at the moment, then let me temp you with these modern,
gun metal grey, shiny new, sooooft good quality brushes, available ever so conveniently as you do
you grocery shop at where else but your local Woolies!

There are 5 of these beauties in the Platinum collection and each with it's own essential role to play.
Let me run you through each of the 4 which I have been using in my collection over the past few
months.


Contour Eye Brush
This tapered brush is perfect for creating definition and shadows to your eye's crease. Blend your
shadow into this area and blend with these super smooth, soft hairs. Within a few strokes I have
found my shadow to blend effortlessly, even when I use my cheaper branded makeup!
RRP $10.00

Eye Shadow Brush
Aside from the Blush Brush (which I will talk about soon!) this Eye Shadow Brush is my most used
brush! If your budget is tight, then you could probably get away with skipping on the Contour Eye
Brush and just using this one to complete your all over eye look. I still prefer to use both of these for
creating a more defined eye and precise definition, however this brush with a little practice can do it
all.

The hairs on this brush are slightly shorter and the shape is more rounded. This makes it easy to pack
on your desired shadow shade all over the base of your lid. Then using your Contour Eye Brush (or
this one if you brush off the excess shadow shade before changing colours for contouring) blending in
your usual slightly darker shade into the crease and then highlighting along the brow bone, inner
corner of the eye and where ever else you feel helps you eyes to really pop and look larger and more
awake. RRP $10.00

Base Blending Brush
We all have our own preference when it comes to how we choose to apply foundation. For years I
just found it so much quicker and easier to just use my (clean!) fingers. This method works amazingly
well because there is no chance of leaving behind brush strokes and everything is blended and spread
out well and evenly from the warmth in my fingers. I do still use this method on occasion, however
since discovering the magic of the trusty makeup sponge, I pretty much apply my liquid this way.

So how does this Base Blending Brush come into it? Well generally I will use this brush with my
loose powder to set my liquid foundation as it seems to blend the powder out all over my face instead
of it just sitting where it lands so to speak. However this brush is also designed to use with liquid
foundation to blend everything out nice and smoothly and gives quite a flawless finish in the few
times I have given this method a try. RRP $15.00

Blush Brush
This brush is super light and nicely fluffy and just perfect for applying blush! The hairs on this brush
seem to just pick up the right amount of product to apply to the apples of my cheeks which I then
sweet slightly upwards towards my cheekbones. Then naturally following up with a little bit of
highlight. Everyone loves highlight right now! Including me, obvs! RRP $19.00
