NEW Superfood Masks from The Body Shop


The Body Shop knows what it’s all about. They realise that the epitome of ‘me-time’ involves a facial mask or two. The blissful moments spent relaxing in a warm bath with your face slathered in a skin-boosting mask is unbeatable in any women’s busy life. The Body Shop recently sent over two of their new face masks for me to do just that – relax and relish their skin-benefiting natural ingredients. These superfood masks are 100% vegetarian, and three (out of the five in the range) are 100% vegan. They’re also all paraben-free, silicone-free and mineral-oil free.

UPDATE + REVIEW – Kiehl’s #ChangeYourSkin Challenge


We’ve reached day 28 and I’m here to report back on my experience with the #ChangeYourSkin challenge. If you’re currently shaking your head, feeling utterly confused then head on over to this post and read a bit more about the Kiehl’s skin challenge I took up last month. I’m going to share my impressions of all the products I used and of course, a slightly more meticulous review of my two favourites products. This challenge was a variegated assortment of opinions – some exceptional, some uninspiring and unfortunately some substandard.

Pond’s #BeautifulHabits


This month, the month of July, I’ve partnered with Pond’s to share ‘Beautiful Habits’ as well as their ‘Expression Lines’ campaign with you. As a 32-year old, almost 33-year old woman, I’ve collected a couple of beauty habits throughout the years – some good and some bad. I think it’s only fair that I share the good with you as well as let you in on a little secret – you can love your expressions, but you can lose the lines they bring . The lines that converge on our faces are a reflection of the lives we’ve lived – the laughs we’ve shared with friends, the squabbles we’ve endured, the sleepless nights filled with worry and the smiles that touched our lips during cheerful moments. We wear these expression lines as a badge of honour. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t age gracefully and prevent those fine lines from taking up permanent residence on our skin.

Kiehl’s 28 Day #ChangeYourSkin Challenge with Beauty Bulletin


What are your skin concerns? As a *ahem* 30+ woman, my list of skin worries includes fine lines, mild pigmentation, dehydration and overall issues with skin texture and dullness. I’m not going to lie to you – getting old isn’t fun when your age starts displaying all the years of ‘living’ on your face. I’m looking forward to the next 28 days, as I’ll be participating in the Kiehl’s #High5ToGreatSkin challenge. The idea is to use the Kiehl’s products to #ChangeYourSkin. Yes, it’s that simple. Join me as I take you along on my skin journey over the next couple of weeks. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, about to rip open the wrapping paper to discover I was given exactly what I asked for – a barbie dream house. The adult equivalent of this is to open up a box of luxurious Kiehl’s products.
