Happy Friday! I’ve gotta say, I’m not really one for sheet masks anymore but I got this one from @medik8australia as a freebie with a recent Adore Beauty order and I’ve heard *very* good things about it. Has anyone tried these gel/cellulose masks before? Are they really that big of a step up from a traditional sheet mask?? 🤷‍♀️ [Image Description: Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask on white bedside table]

Another day, another cleanser 💕 the @thebodyshopaust Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter proves that sometimes simplicity really is best! Yesterday’s blog post is all about this buttery balm that melts into a silky oil, and takes all the makeup and grime of the day with it.

A few days ago I had a massive makeup clean out, and the area that faced the full brunt of my cull was definitely the lipstick drawer 💄 after a year and a bit of on and off mask wearing I’ve just reached a point where I only want to wear my favourites... Because life is too short for anything less than your favourite lipsticks ✨ [Image Description: dozens of lipsticks of various brands all scattered in a tray]

I used the @korres Wild Rose Moisturiser for the first time in ages last night and I’d almost forgotten how gorgeous it is! 🌹 I’ve reached for it again tonight because it’s such a hydrating cream with a slightly thicker, more indulgent consistency, and I need every bit of hydration I can get at the moment 🌵 Can always rely on these four faves for moisturising, skin nourishing goodness!

Products include The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser, Aspect Extreme B17 Serum, Jordan Samual Hydrate Facial Serum and Korres Wild Rose Moisturiser]

Anyone else’s skin struggling at the moment? The combination of lockdown and this cold weather has meant way too much time indoors with the heating on and my skin is not loving it 😑 Todays blog post is all about the cleanser I’m reaching for on my oily and shiny days. The @omorovicza Cleansing Foam as a great first cleanse for ploughing through sunscreens, and is what I’m loving on the days when my combo skin is feeling really unbalanced...

Q: Why are books often such different heights? 📚 A: Apparently it comes down to a whole heap of factors. The genre, whether it's a hardcopy or paperback, if the book is a new release or it's a later reprint, and if the page size is going to make a big difference to the number of pages/printing cost. Filing this away under ‘Things I Google While In Melbourne Lockdown 4.0’ 🙃

It took me a while to realise that the skin on my body isn't a big fan of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) 🙃 it then took me an even longer time to find a body wash that didn't contain SLS but that I still *actually* liked, but now I've found this one, I’m pretty in love 💕 It's kind on my skin, leaves me feeling clean but never dried out and smells very much like a much more expensive product I used to love 🍋 it’s lemony, sweet and fresh. If you're having trouble with really dry or itchy skin too it might be worth looking out for a body wash formulated without SLS or SLES. They’re not automatically ‘bad’ ingredients, it's just about finding what works best for you and your skin.

Happy Sunday all! I’m over here enjoying the last few days of Autumn (aka. my favourite season 🍂) before Winter arrives, but that means it’s time to round-up the products I’ve loved over the past few months. Some skincare, some body bits and a couple of books I *cannot* stop thinking about ❤️ Link in the bio x [Image Description: collection of seasonal favourite items on a white background]

Today is the second day of a snap seven day lockdown here in Melbourne 😷 so this weekend's plans include reading, baking, lots of telly and a little pampering too... Has anyone watched Mare of Easttown yet? 📺 I absolutely devoured it today and can't wait for the final episode to come out on Monday. If small town crime shows are your thing, check it out!

Talk about a highly anticipated delivery! I missed out on the first launch of the @spectrumcollections x @katiejanehughes a few months ago, but managed to get my hands on a set in the relaunch 🥳 they’ve already sold out again, but I hear there are more on the way! I haven’t used them yet, but initial thoughts are that they’re absolutely gorgeous (obviously... 😍), really well weighted, comfy tapered handles, and the have the softest bristles I’ve ever felt. Incredibly, they’re cruelty free too ❤️ I’m so looking forward to playing with these and getting them all grubby with products 😂 [Image Description: the Spectrum x Katie Jane Hughes 25 piece set of brushes. Each brush has an olive green handle, shiny gold colored ferrule and creamy coloured bristles]

Friday arvo deliveries! 🥳 I took advantage of the Click Frenzy sale this week at @adorebeauty to stock up two of my favourites serums (@alphahskincare Vitamin E and @aspectskin Extreme B17) plus a couple of lipbalms and a Gua Sha by @saltbyhendrix. Happy Friday everyone! 💕 [Image Description: Adore Beauty Haul on a round concrete tray. Haul includes Aspect B17 Serum, Alpha-H Vitamin E Serum, 2 x Dr Bronner’s lip balms and a light pink Gua Sha stone]

Yesterday’s blog review was all about the @medik8australia Press & Glow Daily Exfoliating PHA Tonic. This product majorly ticks the box when it comes to packaging (functional, environmentally considerate *and* gorgeous to look at?!) but what about the juice inside??
