Even though I was away in Japan for two weeks of February, I still managed to secure a few solid favourites to talk to you about this month!
And old favourite that I am ordering a fresh product of this month is the Moo Goo Fresh Cream Natural Deodorant (RRP $8.50) – which you can read all my thoughts on here! Switching to natural deodorant was one of the best things I did in 2016. It did take some getting used to, but I haven’t looked back since!
Another long term favourite is the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer (RRP $32.00). I’ve been experiencing horrible skin problems in the last few months (all hormonal issues, such a joy) and this concealer is the only one I trust to keep those pesky marks covered. It does tend to be more tacky than creamy, but I found that this type of formula lasts better on my skin. Not to mention it’s completely cruelty free and vegan! Boom!
Onto new favourites, I picked up the NYX Micro Brow Pencil (RRP $16.95) at the NYX-Mas Store Opening at Pacific Fair. This pencil is ultra thin, which makes it perfect for lightly drawing super fine brow hairs and outlining the arch for pomade. It really reminds me of Benefit’s Precisely My Brow, but it’s more affordable AND cruelty free. Can’t beat that!
Something that has been helping my hormonal skin IMMENSELY this month has been Skinstitut products (RRP $49 ea). As you may already know, I have been going to Laser Clinics Australia in Brisbane to help with my hormonal breakouts with Microdermabrasions and Chemical Peels. The skin care line recommended and sold by Laser Clinics Australia is Skinstitut (which happens to be cruelty free and vegan too!). Stand outs have been the Glycolic Cleanser 12% and the Retinol Serum. I am hoping to do a more in depth review on these products soon, let me know if you are interested!
And for a random favourite…
Lastly, a bit of a random favourite. If you haven’t yet binge watched Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix, get off this blog and go watch it! I watched the first episode and was… apprehensive. But after watching the second episode, I was completely hooked! It’s a horror comedy starring Drew Barrymore, so you know it’s good! The marital comedy between Barrymore and her on-screen husband Tim Olyphant is delicious good.
