Proactiv Advanced Blemish Pimple Cream

I don’t know what it is but pimples have been attacking my face the past few months. I know I’ve been exceptionally stressed, and that accounts for the majority of my breakouts, but I’m thinking there is an underlying cause I need to investigate. I’ve never had many breakouts in my years and I was hoping to skate through life with few more. Seeing as though that hasn’t been the case recently, I’ve turned to blemish spot treatments to help me over a few lumpy breakouts until I get my skin on track. I’ve never used, nor had a need to use, Proactiv Solution products but when I found the little tube of Advanced Blemish Cream buried deep in a box of skincare products I thought now would be the time to give it a go.

Do you need acne in order to use Proactiv? Will Proactiv work for my dry, mildly-blemished skin? Does Proactiv really work for Adam Levine, Julianne Hough and Naya Rivera? My review reveals the answers, except for that last question (who knows what works for celebrities!?!). Continue Reading

Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair Thermo Leave-in Conditioner

Not too long ago I was trialling a shampoo and conditioner that left my hair extremely dry and damaged. Despite the products stating they were to “repair” already dry hair, I seemed to have had a completely opposite reaction. My hair became so dry and knotty (even while using the conditioner) that not even a Tangle Teezer could get through it. It was upsetting and after 3 or 4 attempts at sticking to the products I decided I needed help from the outside in the form of a leave-in treatment just so I could put my hair into a somewhat presentable state. I had previously tried Goldwell’s Rich Repair shampoo and conditioner samples while travelling and found them to be too rich for my normal hair, so when this damage started occurring I instantly thought back to the Dualsense Rich Repair range as a potential solution.

I reached for the Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair Thermo Leave-In Treatment as a quick spray-in solution. Did it help me? My review tells all.  Continue Reading

Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Skincare

Having a skincare regime that addresses all your skin concerns and needs is absolutely vital for not only looking your best but feeling your best as well. When your skin is healthy it has a flow-on effect to all part of our wellbeing. I’ve been a long-time believer in the power of cosmeceuticals and medical grade skin care. One brand that has been pioneering cosmeceuticals for many years in Australia is Intraceuticals but until now I hadn’t tried their individual products, I’ve only had their in-clinic treatments.

During Fall/Winter my primary skincare concern was hydration so it was the perfect time to trial the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate range. I’ve been using the Daily Serum, Hydration Gel and Moisture Binding cream which make up their 3-step Hyaluronic Layering system. Did these products keep my skin hydrated during the bitter cold? Let me tell you in this review.  Continue Reading

Reef After Sun Repair Gel 150ml

Now that it’s warming up in the Southern Hemisphere you just know that a barrage of sunscreen and sun safety articles will be heading your way. Before I get into my heavy posting of sun protection loves, I’m going to give you a review of another essential summertime beauty product – the after sun gel. This review is about Reef’s After Sun Repair Gel but you probably know Reef for their sun tanning oils more than you would for anything else. The fact is that what you apply to your skin AFTER sun exposure is just as important as what you use during it.

Will this repair gel give you the necessary cooling, healing and hydrating powers? Let’s find out!  Continue Reading
