I am sure many of you have had this same feeling...you know the one where you find a skincare or makeup brand that you feel resonates with you and just seems to work? That brand where you pretty much have loved every single product in their range and hardly ever fails to disappoint. There are possibly a small handful of brands where I feel very passionately about and one of these is none other than Allies of Skin. I pretty much love everything in their range and I do think that Nicolas Travis' creations and formulations are definitely ones to watch. Recently, I had the amazing opportunity to try their latest creation - Bright Future Overnight Facial and whilst I was a little skeptical in how it worked (I had to learn how to REALLY strip back my skincare routine), I found myself really enjoying the results and just surprised at how effective this product really is. Bright Future is quite simply put an sleeping peel that aims to illuminate, regenerate and renew the skin. In true Allies of Skin style, the brand have yet again simplified the skincare rules and steps and created a product that aims to do everything in 30 seconds.Read More
I will admit, I find it really hard to make it to skincare empties as I do change up my routine quite often. There is however much satisfaction when I do make it to the end of a product though and for me it means that I can use or open up something new in my routine. These days I have learnt to not be so light handed with products and to not be afraid to use some things a little bit more generously/heavy handedly as if I went on the rate that I was at previously, I don't think I would have ever finished anything! In saying that however, this is my empties for this month, its not many but at least they are empty!Read More
I have been living in China for a little over a week now and oh my goodness, it's quite the culture shock! So many huge changes such as the language (I cannot speak a drop of Mandarin), getting around, where I go to complete the simple things such a groceries, navigating around the shops, online banking (to name a few) and coffee! Australian coffee how I would love to have a sip of your right now! I do feel like I am adjusting and slowly adapting to things but as cheesy as it does sound, Australia is and always will be home. I do miss things in Australia very much and I am missing my friends and family greatly. However, China offers new experiences and adventures and I do get to be with the Mr which is very, very nice too. Changes happen and we just have to adapt, adjust and make the most out of every situation. I am sure that in a few months time I will love my life here and will have new friends and have some amazing experiences that I can treasure and tell those at home about.
In the spirit of being a little homesick, I thought I would review an Australian product and talk about one of my favourite exfoliators that I use in my skincare regime: The Go-To-Skincare Exfoliating Swipeys.Read More
