UNISEX PRODUCTS I USE & RECOMMEND!

Straight out of our shared bathroom….

LISTERINE TOTAL CARE
I have always grown up being quite aware of my oral health and taken good care of my teeth. I’ve not
ever had a filling and would like it to stay that way. I am not actually a big fan of using mouth wash. I
find them too strong and overpowering, and this one is no exception. This product is actually one of
the strongest in terms of flavour I have ever used, however I use it becaues the benefits far out weigh
the pungent flavour.

With 6 big benefits in one including – killing germs, reducing plaque, freshening breath, protects
gums, prevents tartar build up and strengthens teeth. It is hard to say no and I cannot deny my mouth needs this and since I am now well beyond the 21st Day Challenge from when I first began using this
product, I can safely say my mouth looks, feels and smells a lot more clean and healthy. 

About a month ago I took my 4 and 2 yr old for their very first dental check up and also booked
myself in for a check and clean since I hadn’t been in more than 5 years! Happy to report all is good
and I am still cavity free! Yay!


NIVEA CREAM
I feel like I have been using this classic Nivea Cream since I started using skincare products. I am
pretty sure the first time I used this product I was actually ‘borrowing’ it from my sister! This product
is the perfect all rounder must have for every person, male and female! It comes in a variety of sizes, 
so you can have a larger size at home for daily use as well as smaller travel and purse size options
available. At the moment I just have this cute little sample pot which I received after applying for a
sample. 

The cream is thick and white and is great for dry and sensitive skin. Even safe enough to use on 
children and babies skin which has been great over the past 5 years with my two rascals.
Can be used all over the body as both a facial and/or body cream.
Currently on special at Priceline for $6.64 (200ml)

CK2 BY CALVIN KLEIN
I have been using this for a few months now and love that it is unisex and my hubby can also enjoy it!
 The clear glass bottle is so simplistic and minimal and matches any space I store it. The scent is very
 gender neutral, appealing to both men and women. I usually go for the sweet, floral and girlie scents, 
however this isn’t any of those things yet doesn’t smell at all masculine either. This is a really fresh 
and clean scent that doesn’t over power your nose. I have found the fragrance to last throughout the 
day and can smell it lingering on my skin if I smell my arm. πŸ™‚ This would make a great gift for those 
who have everything or are difficult to buy for as it would suit just about everyone!

Contains top notes of wasabi, mandarin & violet leaf. Middles notes of wet cobblestones, concrete
accords, orris root & rose absolute and base notes of vetiver, sandalwood & incense.


PRIMAL EARTH MOISTURISER WITH SPF
There has just been something in the air lately that has been attracting me to products from New
Zealand, (see my NZ skincare routine here!) and this being one of them! My husband visited NZ
for a few months before we met and has always raved about how beautiful a place it is, so I wasn’t
surprised to find the Primal Earth range of men’s products on his side of the bathroom. 

Being a naturally curious beauty nut who will try just about anything I had to see if it was any good, 
as I usually do with any new product I see in the bathroom. I am gonna try it – mine or not! haha!

This moisturiser is thick and white and contains an SPF 15 which you can’t even tell is there when
you apply it. There is no greasy feel or sunscreen type smell. The smell is actually very natural and
uplifting. I really like this one!! Contains Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Harakeke.
Available to purchase from Woolworths.


COLGATE OPTIC WHITENING PEN
This product actually comes in a set with the Colgate Optic White toothbrush but I have to say I 
only bought it mainly for the whitening pen! I have a bit of an obsession with whitening my teeth
as a frequent coffee drinker (more for the buzz and to stay awake and alert than the taste) my teeth
have suffered for it and definitely have had whiter, brighter days!

The pen is so easy to use, you just twist the bottom around until it clicks a few time and you will see
the product begin to ooze out the top. Apply this to your teeth and you’re good to go! I have been
applying this right before I go to bed so my tongue doesn’t get busy wondering around my mouth and
removing the product. I want it to work with maximum results so I let it sit overnight. I started to see
results after about a week and have kept on using it! 


NIVEA FOR MEN SENSITIVE POST SHAVE BALM
With all of the hype around this product recently of course I had to give it a go to see for myself
what all the fuss was about. Funnily enough my husband already had and uses this product so it
was easy for me to ‘borrow’ it! 

For women it is said this product makes for a killer makeup primer. I have tried quite a number of
different primers and have found pros and cons in each of them, however never actually finding a
holy grail I would keep on re-purchasing. So I have been buying and trying out new ones all the time. 

This product does have a bit of an aroma to it. It is quite pleasant though and not as strong as you
might expect a men’s facial product to be. Usually they seem to have a much stronger scent then 
women’s products in my opinion. After applying the skin feels smooth and dry surprisingly and
immediately ready for makeup which stays matte and shine free throughout the day! Gotta love that!

Do you use any of the above products?
Are there any you would been keen to try?

~  EMPTIES  ~
MARCH & APRIL

Previous – July / August / September / October / November / December / January / February 

~ MARCH! ~

So obviously time is flying by too fast for me to keep up to these days so I am combining two months
together as March especially was AGES ago! Plus it is almost the end of yet another month so a new
month of empties is again due for reflection and review.
Being at home 24/7 with my two toddlers plus being co-owner of our own business I help run with
my husband, free time to relax and blog/vlog and do my own thing is rare. However I am doing the
best I can with the time I have. Being busy sure does make the time FLY! I have come to realise this 
so much more over the past almost five years since becoming a mother. Seems like everyday second 
of everyday is go, go, GO! Frankly I need a break and time to breathe…
Come early August we are packing up our place we have lived in here in Brisbane over the past six
 years and are moving on to live closer to my husbands family about an hour and a half away to a 
more quiet neighbourhood.  I am really looking forward to a fresh start in a new place, having some
extra family around and with Imbi starting big school next year (which I am completely freaking out
and excited about) it should be nice to have some of my day partially calmed down and can focus on
just one kid at home which might let me relax a little. Maybe…
Anyway mini life update over, let get onto the fun stuff!
~  CLEANSERS!  ~
Peony Scented Bubble Bath
Back in January I received my $5 birthday voucher from Priceline in the mail and this is what I
spent it on. πŸ™‚ Mainly for the kids bubble baths, they loved it. Had a gorgeous scent and made great
white, fluffy bubbles!
Organic Care Lemongrass & Ginger Hand Wash (Review!)
Picked this one up again a few Beautorium’s ago. Why? Because it is amazing and great value!
Not to mention my whole family uses it and enjoys it. 
Hello Kitty Shower Gel
Received this in a gift pack with matching perfume. So super cute and made great bubbles in the
bath!
~  LOTIONS & MOISTURISERS  ~
Lanolips Golden Ointment
If you have really and I mean REALLY dry skin then this product is a must for you! So rich and thick
the lotion just soaks in and softens the skin instantly!! Honestly the best, most effective dry skin 
treatment I have ever come across!
Papulex Oil-Free Cream
This was a nice light weight facial cream. My skin didn’t irritate or break out whilst I used it. So I
think the fact it is designed for acne prone skin worked because my skin does tent to break out
when I don’t use products targeted to my skin type.
Frangipani Body Lotion
This smelt amazing. Nothing else too special about it though. Just your average body lotion from a
gift pack I was given for Christmas.
NeoStrata Skin Active w/SPF (Sample)
This sample was good. I got two uses out of it. I would use it again. 
~  SERUMS & TREATMENTS  ~
Sukin Facial Treatment Oil (Review!)
This is so hydrating and healing. I love it for my acne scaring and it just feels so so good!
Pumpkin Seed Organic Facial Serum (Review!)
This was such an interesting product to me. Simply sure pumpkin seed oil. That’s it! The only
ingredient. I had no idea how lovely a product is actually is. Found in my Pearlesque monthly
subscription box reviewed here.
Eminence Naseberry Treatment Cream
I used a dab of this whenever I eyed a cheeky spot coming on and bam, it just cleared it up and
helped the already nasty ones heal up. My skin is so good right now! Hope I can live without this
now it’s empty! I do have a bunch of other acne related products I have to replace this with though
so I should be good.
Sealicious Cuticle & Nail Oil
This tiny little bottle was in my Doll Connection goody bag and this was my first time using the
brand’s products. Really nice, I liked it! Made my cuticles nice and soft and I believe my nails are
stronger and longer now because of it.
Sealicious Hand & Foot Mask
Used this sample up in one go! Lathered up my tootsies and let it set. I don’t think I had ever used a
foot mask prior to this, so it was oh so nice to treat my tried aching feet!
~  HAIR!  ~
VO5 Silky Mist Miracle Mist
I used this on both mine and my daughters hair and it actually did an amazing job at detangling the
hair and giving it a lovely shine. Sadly, I don’t think this product is still available to purchase.
L’Oreal Paris Perfect Blonde Cream 
This conditioner came in my hair dye box which I forgot to keep for photographing for this empties
post. However it is the same boxed hair dye I used to use way back in my early 20’s when I first
bleached my hair. It stripes the hair of any colour so the base is ready for colouring. It does a hell of
a great job at lightening the hair in one go!
Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor Refil (Review!)
Here it is again. I go through these all the time. Cannot recommend this razor enough! The moisture
strip saves me every time. I just love it!

~  MAKEUP & NAILS  ~
Avon Cashmere Finish Foundation
This wore more like a tinted moisturiser in my opinion. Very light coverage. Would not particuarly
recommend it.
Revitanail Clear Base Coat
Brilliant! Love it, dries fast and up there with the best.
Napoleon Perdis Lip Gloss in Acapulco Pink
Pretty light barbie pink shade. Love it, it’s my go-to lip colour! Always!
Catwalk Purple Eyeshadow
Had this for far too long and glad to see it go. Much prefer eyeshadow palettes over singles to be 
honest. Much less fiddly and easy and faster to get the job done. The shade and quality was good
though. Had a nice subtle shimmer through it.
Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in #10 Pink Frosting
This was a gorgeous shade and this pot lasted me AGES! I would purchase this again, though I
might go for another colour to try something new.
Nars Optimal Brightening Concentrate (Sample)
Hard to have much of an opinion after just one use. Didn’t irritate and did not leave any kind of
residue. Was able to apply my normal facial moisturiser over the top straight away.
~ APRIL ~
Not so many this month. Just a few large bottles which I have to say I am still pretty proud of since
they are so large. Every one is a little win. πŸ™‚


~ HAIR! ~
Tresemme’ Split Remedy Shampoo
I have been using this shampoo/conditioner combo for years and have reviewed them here.
Does a good job at curbing those pesky split ends. Smells really nice and lathers up like a treat
with every wash.
John Freida Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Conditioner
With my DIY hair lightening comes DIY tone correcting! At the moment my hair is leaning toward
the gawd awful orange side and I just ain’t got time for that! So purple & silver shampoos &
conditioners have been my best friends at every single wash!
Scunci Hair & Body Art Tattoos
We’ve all heard about body tatts, but with hair tattoos being the new thing to do, it was a fun
experience to try these out and if you are interested, you can watch my video tutorial on these here.
~  BODY!  ~
Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Heavenly Lotion
This lotion is gorgeous! A gift from my husband a few years back which I have been savouring. 
However it was most likely past it’s due date so had to be used up asap!
Coast To Coast Lightweight Moisture Lotion
Another beautiful product. I have reviewed the whole Coastal range here. Lovely and light on the
skin. The fragrance is light and is so hydrating and soothing at the same time.
Puretopia Sensitive Care Protective Moisturiser
Coming into Winter, my skin is becoming dryer, hence why I am probably going through a few more
facial creams than usual. I don’t have sensitive skin by any means, but I still really liked this.
Stopped the dry feeling and sensation on my skin and soaked in fast!
~ Sample! ~
Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner
I wanted to love this, really I did. Props to Benefit for being innovative, however this product was just
a big fail for me. Maybe it was just the sample packaging and the full size is much easier to use? 
Please let me know, because this was pretty much impossible to use and dried out pretty much 
straight away. 


How are you going with your empties so far this year?

~  FEBRUARY EMPTIES  ~
WATCH/LIKE/SUBSCRIBE!

I usually tend to think of months with some kind of theme. With December being all about 
Christmas and January the new year & my birthday. February all me thinking all about hearts, 
red roses, romantic dinners and of course LOVE! πŸ™‚ 
So let’s see how many empties I managed to work my way through in this romantic month!
Let’s make it easy and go from the largest packaging to the smallest…
Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor w/ Coconut Milk & Almond Oil
I have said it before and I’ll keep on saying it, this is the best razor out there in my opinion!
I have tried a gazillion different kinds and this is by far the most unique and kindest to my skin
which is prone to itching after shaving. I love that I can use this without having to dig around to 
find shaving gel too! (Review!)
TRESemme’ Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment
Pretty nice stuff. Has taken my ages to finally get through it. But that can be a good thing! 
Would buy again once I am through with all the others I have to use first. πŸ™‚ (Review!)
Avon Naturals Milk & Honey Nourishing Body Lotion
You know how I love my body lotions and lather them all over my body on a daily basis. Well this 
one was in one of my most favourite scents – Milk & Honey! I LOVE it! The scent wasn’t overly 
powerful though, which in this case I would have preferred. Some products need to tone down their
overpowering scents, but this kind of scent can never get too much for me. It is just so delicious!
Bioderma Atoderm PO Zinc Intense Hydration
I have mentioned this product previously in another article here where I talk about the benefits this
product can have if you suffer from super dry skin. My skin isn’t prone to dryness, however this was
still nice to use. It came in my Blogstar prize pack a few years ago, so it needed to be finished up, so I
just used it anyway. Did a good job, I enjoyed it especially on my feet which do get the driest.
Coast To Coast Ultra Gentle Facial Polish w/ Wild Rosella & Oatmeal
I would classify this as quite a gentle exfoliant. Great for sensitive skin types. My skin is normal and
prone to breaking out every now and then and I was actually surprised at how well it kept the pesky
spots at bay. Lasted me ages and every now and then I would also use it to give my legs and feet a
gentle scrub. (Review!)
Dettol Soft On Skin Hand Wash in Vanilla & Coconut
Such an awesome household staple to have all over the house, especially with little ones running
around. I love these because this refill is used in an automatic battery operated dispenser which means
the no touch sensor senses when you hand is placed under it and squirts out just the right amount of
soap per wash, leaving little room for germs to spread! Also smells SO YUM!
Paleo Skincare Spearmint Tallow Bodywash
Received this sample in my recent Native Box which I have reviewed here. Make sure you check
that out for a mini demo so you can see how it works! πŸ™‚
This brand is new to me and I did enjoy using this. The scent was nice and not too ott. It lathered up
pretty well and made me feel refreshed and smelling minty for the day! 
Avon Shine On Shimmering Lip Gloss is Frost
I am sure that I am not the only one trying to down size their lip gloss/balm stash?
How do so many accumulate so quickly? I must have about 50 and have no clue how I am going to 
get through them all in this life time, but hey I can try! Recently threw away a heap which felt so
relieving! Anyway – The gloss is so cute and shimmery, I really actually enjoyed it. Occasionally 
doubled up using a tiny bit as a bit of a cheek high lighter. 
Lancome Juicy Lip Gloss 
Unfortunately this gloss seemed to separate in the tube. πŸ™ Half of the product was a beautiful grape 
shade with a hint of shimmer throughout and the other was just clear, sticky goo. Was not impressed
considering this is probably one of the most expensive lip glosses I have ever invested in. I expect
more from such a higher ended brand. 
And we’re done! How are you going with your empties so far for 2016?

~ MAX FACTOR ~

Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara

REVIEW!
I own a few other Max Factor makeup items in my collection and I have always wondered why I
don’t hear as much of this brand as some others. I feel like Max Factor deserves a bit more
recognition as their products are amazing!
I have really enjoyed incorporating this mascara into my everyday makeup routine along with others from the brand. Together they work well and I love the end result.
The sleek and posh black & gold tube is very classy and grown up looking as opposed to some other brightly coloured ones on the market. This makes me feel good to use for a change. I like the feeling!
The wand is easy to use and hold in my hand. I can apply steadily and coat every single lash, even those almost invisible ones on the inner corner on both the top & bottom. 
My lashes are nothing to brag about so I loved having them given a nice amount of extra length and volume to make me appear more awake, alive and with the illusion of slightly bigger eyes. YAS!! πŸ˜€ (I have always envied Ashley Olsen’s doll like beautiful big eyes!) My eyes don’t look quite THAT amazing, but using this mascara has definitely helped!
No overpowering scent or anything which I like when it comes to mascaras because then I definitely know when they need to hit the bin as soon as I begin to feel that waft of product creep up my nose!

Overall, this mascara has been great and I have been using it everyday. For night to add a little more drama, I found applying a few extra coats made a bigger difference in making them appear to have that slight ‘False Lash Effect’.
I would recommend for both day & night for those who want a more grown up, classy looking mascara that is versatile in giving you a range of looks from office professional to let your hair down party animal depending on how many coats you apply. πŸ™‚
Do you have a favourite versatile mascara?

January Empties!

Previous Months – January / February / March / April / May / June / July / August / September / October / November / December

So here we are, another year gone & the first month already done & dusted!
Can you believe it? Let’s take a look into my binned things for January…
~ HAIR ~
Puretopia Moisture Repair Nourishing & Strengthening Shampoo
This was a refreshing change to my regular hair care products. Highly recommend this one.
Full review can be found here. πŸ™‚
VO5 Anti Frizz Leave-in Conditioner 
This was alright. Tamed my frizzy hair a little bit. Don’t think you can still get this anymore?
Had this product sitting around for ages!
VO5 Silky Smooth Silk Serum
Same with this product. Had it for forever and FINALLY used it all up. Note to self – Serums take
a long time to use, so don’t go buying so many you dork!!!
~ BODY ~
Colgate Max White One Mouth Wash
Super, amazing, great, loved it! I have been using heaps of teeth whitening products this past
year and finally, I think my teeth are a little bit whiter. I have products like this one to thanks for that!
Palmolive Foaming Nourishing Hand Wash in Raspberry
Will never stop buying this! Smells gorgeous and foams up straight out of the pump which the kids
love!
Vagisil pH Plus Intimate Wash
Thank you to the lovely Livia from her blog for this as I won it from her giveaway a little while ago.
I just used this as an all over body wash. It also makes great bubbles in the bath! πŸ™‚
~ SAMPLES ~
PureTan Pure Bronze Dark Tanning
This was way too dark for my skin, however I still really enjoyed using it and the formula was good.
I have been tanning heaps lately so it was nice to try something new. Thanks to BH for including this
in my Beautorium order!
Carol’s Beauty Sun Tanning Enhancer Lotion
This is quite an oily formula, however really nice to use. I have been using this along with this 
Carol’s Beauty Tan Enhancing Oil in my everyday tanning routine to help prolong my fake tan.
It is also super moisturising!
Carol’s Beauty Sun Tanning Enhancer Oil
Again, really enjoyed using this over my fake baked skin. There are just the small bottles, there are
also full size ones available which I have reviewed here. πŸ™‚ 
Vagisil Fresh Plus Intimate Wash
Another sample of the Vagisil, I cannot recall exactly where it came from, however I am thinking it
may have been from a recent Elle or Cosmo mag? hmm..
Schick Hydro Silk Razor Re-Fill
This is an old favourite which I have been using for years. Does a great job, however isn’t my
absolute fav. That crown goes to the Schick Intuition, hands down! 
Arbonne Skincare Samples
Dug these out of my Doll Connection blog event goodie bag recently and decided to see how they’d
go. Pretty nice products actually, although a bit on the pricer side. 
Watch! – January Empties!

~  December Empties  ~

Previous Months – January / February / March / April / May / June / July / August / September / October / November


Today I share with you my very last empties post for the year 2015!
Late as usual, so my January empties will most likely be up after this one. Video has already been
filmed & is up on my channel if you want to take a sneak peak before I post it here. πŸ™‚
The past year was hands down the most productive and successful in terms of using up old products
and clearing out some much needed space in my bathroom!

Feeling good about that as I have begun the new year with a bang, continuing to focus on my
 de-cluttering and chipping away at it bit by bit not only in my bathroom but my whole house as
well. πŸ™‚

FACE!


Real-U Cleanse Gentle Foaming Facial Wash
This brand seems to have been getting quite a bit of buzz over social media and with bloggers this
past year and with pretty good reason. My skin has always been acne prone. I am (finally) old enough
now to have my skincare routine down to a fine art and rarely ever break out anymore. However I
do still occasionally get the odd pimple yet when I used this daily over a period of a few months I
didn’t get a single one!

Avon Clear Skin Blemish Clearing Foaming Cleanser
Another fantastic facial cleanser. As mentioned in many of my previous empties. This stuff is also
amazing for clearing acne fast!

HAIR!

Wella Pro Series Strong Hold Hairspray
I liked having a nice large bottle handy all the time. It lasted me ages and did a great job for
everyday hair styles.

Pantene Pro-V Colour Therapy Leave In Hair Moisturiser
This was a kinda old product which I was very happy to finally finish up before the end of the
year. Slowing getting through my hair moisturisers. I have no idea how I accumulated so many?

L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray
One of the best hair sprays I have ever tried. Holds my hair and curls/waves in place all day.
Doesn’t have that overwhelming scent to it either which is super duper!

Garnier Ambre Solaire Self-Tanning Multi Position Spray
With it being Summer and with me being naturally very white, I have dug through my bathroom
cabinets and found a few tanning sprays and lotions etc. This one was probably one of the oldest in
my stash, so like always I used this one up first. It was pretty good, I liked that I could point it in any
direction or angle and it still sprayed the product out really easily which made it great to get in harder
to reach places like the backs of my legs. πŸ™‚
Lanolips Lovely Lanolin Herbal Treatment Body Oil
Used this up by massaging it into my stretched out post baby belly. Liked this one and kept my skin
nice and hydrated and looking a bit less red.

Trefiel Lace Design Facial Mask
I posted an Instagram picture of myself wearing this a little while ago. It is a such a pretty mask.
Really hydrating and generously soaked in a clear serum. Super luxurious product.

~  So…?  ~
S u p e r s t a r !

Far from being a real life Superstar it is nice every now and again to spray on a sassy scent and
just pretend. Even if it is just singing into my hair brush whilst picking up dirty clothes and toys
around the house.

I am addicted to this scent lately. It is so nice and fresh and works for both day and night.
With top notes of passion fruit orange, pomegranate & passionfruit, middle notes of freesia, lilly of
 the valley & heliotrope and base notes of cedarwood, almond & musk. This unique blend makes me
 a little nostalgic as both the brand So…? and this particular scent reminds me of my youth and being
a teenager.

This 30ml bottle has a secure round dome cap and is easy to spray. I found the scent to linger
for a good few hours before the need to re-spray. A nice size to travel with and fits nicely into my
average size handbag.

A cool, sassy scent perfect for bringing in the new year!

Other fragrances available from the So…? range include –
 So…? Kiss Me
 Brit
 Eternal
 Sensual
Sexy
Sinful
 So…? (Original)

 Currently RRP $14.95 available to purchase from Priceline and
Big W.

~  Beautorium  ~
Beautyheaven Rewards

(December 2015!)

http://www.beautyheaven.com.au

One of those little things which make your day just that little bit better and more exciting than bills
arriving in the mail is when Beautyheaven open their (virtual) doors to their online shopping event
that is Beautorium. Where loyal members (such as moi) can redeem their points accumulated
from participation on the site for beauty products available in the ‘shop’! Hooray!

As usual I have absolutely NO self control (I did try, really I did!) and spent all of my points.
Yep my balance is back to literally zero! Time to get busy again with reviews, comments and
referrals for the next event rumoured to be held in April 2016. Too exciting! πŸ™‚

Enough babble, onto the items I spent all my points on…

Kora Organics Essential Body Wash
If you know me than you know I am Kora obsessed! I love the range of certified organic products
and ingredients. They feel so nice on the skin. I am so happy to have been able to pick up this
body wash for 750 points. It is a good 150ml and retails for $37.50. On the pricier side for a body 
wash so very happy to have picked it up for free! There were also a few other Kora products in
the shop, however I didn’t have enough points to splurge on them all. Hopefully they will still be
available in April. This one has been added to my Kora collection of Day & Night Cream &
 Luxurious Rose Hip Oil

MOR Pepperberry & Cardamon Hand & Body Wash
Ah MOR is such a luxury brand to me. I have always found their products to be ultra rich and
always smell ah-mazing! This one is no exception with the blend of Pepperberry and Cardamon
smelling very sweet and like black berries! Reminds me a little of Lush Snow Fairy. πŸ™‚
On the steep side at 500 points, however quite a large 350ml which should last a while.

Schick Intuition Coconut Milk & Almond Oil Razor
This product is no stranger to me having first used it in a trial for Beautyheaven and then continuing
to stock up on it in a past few Beautoirums. This is my all time favourite razor! The smell is so
yummy and creamy as it the formulation of the moisture block which makes shaving so smooth and
gentle and easy! I just love it! This cost me 260 points. (Review!)

T.B.N. Nail Colour in Little Miss Mila & In The Nude
There where quite a few other shades to choose from in the shop but I ended up settling on one of
my fav classic hot barbie pinks and a nude as I am slowing creeping into liking that kind of neutral
hue. Only 50 points each, a complete steal and I cannot wait to paint with these!

Romantic Colour Eyeshadow Palette by T.B.N.
I almost didn’t get this last product, however I spent all of my points on the very last day of
Beautorium and thought what the hell why not? At only 100 points I couldn’t resist. There was also
another colour variation available which were all black/greys which I feel would be a little too 
dramatic for me so I decided to go with these gorgeous soft pinks, burgundy, charcoal and white
highlight. I have not tried any products from TBN before so I cannot wait! So much fun to be had I 
am sure!

Previous Months – January / February / March / April / May / June / July / August / September / October 

Velvet Moisturising Beauty Bar (Review!)
This had a nice classic clean scent which was lovely to use and lasted ages! Really affordable and
the whole family helped me use them up. Even the kids seemed to enjoy, so gentle enough for them.
Very moisturising and non drying to the skin as well. πŸ™‚ 
QV Gentle Shampoo
This was a great little sample tube which I used on both my 2 and 4 year olds hair. It had a mild scent
and foamed up well and was very soft feeling. I liked how shiny and smooth it made my kids hair. πŸ™‚
Organyc Regular Tampons (Review!)
Not much to say here, great product, does the job and the kind which are better for the environment
get my tick of approval!
Sealicious Hand & Nail Cream
Received both this and the the Sealicious Foot Cream little sample pots in my gift bag from The Doll
Connection blogger event recently. This was my first time trying the brand and even though they 
were small amounts to try, I liked it after just a few applications.
Sealicious Foot Cream
This was one of those slightly minty foot creams which felt soothing on my skin. I really liked this 
and by morning my feet felt really soft and smooth!
Revlon Beyond Natural Lashes
I loved these lashes. They were slightly more bold than my usual choice, however still looked really
good, especially on camera where it’s less noticeable. I would buy/wear these again!
Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser (Buy!)
There are only a few facial cleansers which keep my skin looking clear and free from spots and this 
was one of them. Of course I have to use it twice daily which fits perfectly into my regular routine.
It didn’t dry out my skin and kept it looking fresh as well.
Organic Care Summer Mint Body Wash (Review!)
This was a huuuuuge pump bottle which I actually picked up in a previous Beautorium. I have finally
finished it up! It sure took a good while, which I don’t mind because it also made great bubbles in my
kids bath and the scent was very mild and the formula gentle on both my and my little ones skin. πŸ™‚

GIVEAWAY!

Unless you have been living under a rock then I have no doubt you have probably head all about
the famous Jamberry craze that seems to have swept the beauty community of late.

Jamberry is a US based nail wrap company which has just recently launched right here in Australia!

I was lucky enough to get the chance to sample these new nail wraps and I have to say honestly, they are so darn cute!

I much prefer to have my nails painted than not however being time poor and my priorities focused
95% of my time of my two little ones, it is almost impossible to comprehend sitting around for an
hour or so to give myself a mani/pedi.

What is so great about Jamberry Nail Wraps as you have probably already figured out is that they are
pretty much just like a sticker for your nails, and they look amazing, have zero drying time and last
just as long (if not longer) than some regular nail polishes!

As you can see Jamberry Nail Wraps come in a huge variety of patterns and colours. There really is
a style for everyone. They are such great quality and value, I think they would make some great
stocking fillers this Christmas, especially for young girls, teens and time poor mums like me. πŸ˜‰

The super lovely Erin Steffan, an independent Jamberry consultant can be contacted through
http://www.erinsteffan.jamberrynails.net and has kindly supplied me with x2 sets of Nail Wraps
to GIVEAWAY to two of my loyal readers/followers. Hooray!

To enter the GIVEAWAY be sure to be following me either on Instagram or Facebook or both if
you’d like to increase your chances of winning & good luck!
