There are a few things I've been absolutely loving lately so I thought I would share them with you!
A few weeks back Remington kindly sent me their Silk Ceramic Ultra hair dryer and straightener and I've been using them both daily, as well as on my clients ever since. With a RRP of just $149 and $199 these are both great options for a more affordable hair styling system. I've been known to spend $400 on just one item in the past and had it break 6 months in which was not ideal.. and I've been searching for a replacement ever since. These have given me the results I want, without jeopardising the integrity of my hair, and at an affordable price!
The Body Shop has always been a favourite for me, ever since I worked there in the early 2000's... and with this pregnancy my skin has been so dehydrated and horrible! So I picked up an their Almond Milk and Honey Body Butter. This rich emolient moisturiser is specially formulated for sensitive, dry skin. I love that the products are sourced from Ghana & Ethiopa through fair trade and are all 100% cruelty free. Go The Body Shop!!
One product I just absolutely adore is Dermalogica's Age Smart skinperfdct Primer. It's velvety texture helps to smooth and minimise pores and even out textured skin. I often wear it on it's own (handy when you're late for the kindy run!) as it very noticibly reduces the appearance of my pores, which are probably my biggest skin insecurity. It's most definitely a luxury item with a RRP of $98 - but it's money well spent in my eyes as it helps me feel more confident in my own skin on the daily.
I see Gemma at Bare Waxing in Belmont every couple of months for Dermalogica facial, where she recommends the right products for me and tailors my skincare to suit.
Nude by Nature have released the most gorgeous sets just in time for Christmas. I've been loving the Sheer Light Pressed Bronzer & Sheer light liquid Bronzer Minis that came in a set with a kabuki brush and compact vanity bag for just $39.95 (RRP $72.80). I've been mixing the liquid with my foundation for a summery bronzey fresh glow.
Nude by Nature is available at Farmers as well as online
My current go to foundation has to be LA girl Pro Coverage HD. It's a lightweight formula but gives a medium coverage. It sits beautifully on the skin, works with both dry and oily skin and the best part... it retails for just $16NZ for 28mls of product! I get mine at my local pharmacy but you can find it online here
Lastly I want to talk about this brush that I was sent by Designer Brands. It's incredibly soft dense fibres make it perfect for packing on powder products, ensuring a long lasting matte finish. I've been using it on my clients for a while now and I reach for it first every time. Cruelty free and vegan, these synthetic brushes retail for just $14.99!! I am definitely going to pick up more from the range. Check them out here
