Topic: Hands & feet / Advice - cracked, dry heels?

I have the same problem, as I"m in bare feet alot and it seems that carpet just sucks the life out of it. I use a smoothing foot scrub after using skin so soft in a foot bath, then use a heel balm and wear thick socks to bed. I also use a cuticle oil on my toe nails as I have a problem with splitting and cracking nails after I had my children.

Make sure your shoes fit well and are comfortable and don’t rub, makes calluses really thick and horrible that way.

This is the soothing scrub I use.

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / Best Beauty Subscription Box!

I used to buy LHI and gave away about 95% of it…I’d gotten a few boxes then took out an annual subscription big mistake. Now I get Wantable and I’ve been very underwhelmed the last 2 months. In July my box hadn’t been sent 4 days after the money was taken…I contacted them they apologised and it was sent straight away. I have that I hate trend eyeshadows…I received a bright blue eyeshadow…a friend said it looks like pool cue chalk lol. I contacted them again and again they apologised said they’d send a replacement item…a week later nothing…I contacted them again and now the item has been sent and they gave me a credit towards my next box. This month again payment taken and 5 days later no box sent…contact them again and I’m told it was an oversight and it will be sent the next day…2 days later it still hasn’t been sent it’s now a week after my money was taken and I’m still waiting for my box to be sent. To add insult to injury nearly everyone who ordered eyeshadow in the July box received a beautiful Tarina Tarintino eyeshadow palette I was looking forward to getting a neutral one or even the purple one…I love plum/purple shadows with my hazel eyes…I didn’t get that it was as though because my payment is taken at the end of the month..can’t help pay cycle…I seem to be getting the “left over” items. My husband wants me to stop getting it because of the lack of customer service I’m getting. This is a company that sells boxes for a living…why can’t they get it together and get it posted? Yes this is a bash on Wantable but I am telling you so you can see it from a perspective that isn’t positive. I love getting a box but I don’t think I’m getting a good service at the moment .

Post your story\issue on their facebook page – amazing how quickly things are fixed when aired on social media for the world to see!

Topic: Skincare / Natural Skincare Products for Oily Skin

So I have really oily skin especially in my T zone. I’ve tried using heaps of different brands but nothing seems to work. I’ve been using Sukin for the past two months and even though it has made my skin clearer my skin is still really oily. Is there are natural skincare brands that I could try? Thanks!

Awe Cosmeceuticals have an amazing, completely natural and light serum which I love as I’ve lived with acne-prone and oily skin my whole life pretty much! It’s called the Clearing Serum and it’s amazing to say the least. I use it on my skin every day. I used the Botani moisturiser over the top of it at night because it’s anti-bacterial and this moisturiser also works fro my skin while being very natural too. Hope this helps!

P.S. For a cleanser I love Aspect Purastat5. It’s expensive but it’s worth it to me because it’s looking after my face and works unreal as a cleanser because it’s gentle and works against bacteria too. It’s also very natural. It does tend to last for several months so I suppose it’s not as expensive as it seems at first outlay.

Topic: Hands & feet / What colour are your nails?

Latest mani! I had on just plain red nails during my in laws visit as I didn’t have time to do some fancy schmancy nail art. But here I am back with another one.

It’s my first attempt at doing some floral nail art which didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to but it’s not so so bad I think so I’m still posting it on here. I first did the roses on the tips of the nails but thought it looked a bit too plain so I added more along the base of the nails to create kind of like a border. It’s definitely more like an impressionist rose nail art but it’s still quite pretty and girly if I may say so myself ;)

Topic: Babycare / Bio-Oil® mums-to-be group

Congrats to all the bh mums-to-be! I have been quietly watching this thread and have just hit three months and announced my pregnancy to the bh office, so excited I can now take part!

It’s my first and none of my friends or family have young bubs, so everything is new to me… it’s so nice to get other mums advice as you freak out at everything and wonder if it is normal…

Does anyone have some tips on getting some good sleep while pregnant? I’m finding it so hard to sleep as I’m a tummy sleeper and feel like I might squash the poor thing if I sleep on my stomach, so am really uncomfortable, plus I still have lingering “morning” sickness that wakes me up in the night in between having to get up to pee a million times! Does anyone have any wind down or comforting rituals that work?

Congratulations!!

If you still feel like sleeping on your tummy at 3 months, there is no danger in doing so. Bub is protected by enough amniotic fluid and surrounding tissue that it will be quite protected. I just found it really uncomfortable although I can’t wait to be back to be tummy sleeping. It’s recommended that you try sleep on your left hand side as much as you can, and as your pregnancy progresses, try to avoid sleeping on your back.

The best thing I did this pregnancy was to invest in two body pillows, and put them either side of me. You tuck your knees and ankles up in one, and have the other one as back support. Then, when you need to roll over, you’re not having to drag one body pillow with you every time.

Yup, I definitely remember the gazillion bathroom trips every night. It eased a little for me, although I was still nauseous all the way through (still am at 39 weeks).

Not having anything to drink an hour before bedtime, and perhaps having an antacid tablet before you go to sleep could help.

Wishing you all the best :D

I heartily second the recommendation to sleep on your left side and here is why. I didn’t learn how important this was until I was pregnant with my second child and woke up one night choking on stomach acid and rushed to the doctor the following day. Your stomach empties from right to left – which means that if you are sleeping on your right side, your stomach acid is going the wrong way and due to pregnancy hormones relaxing the muscles of your esophagus, that stomach acid might just end up going all the way up your throat. Trust me, you do not want to wake up choking on that! If I wake up feeling horrible in the middle of the night, it’s most often because I’m laying on the wrong side and a quick rollover will usually help. A pillow between the knees is also helpful if you’re having lower back pain. Not much can be done about the frequent nighttime bathroom visits, unfortunately. Except maybe make sure you shut the bathroom door just a little bit louder than necessary so you’re not the only one enjoying these nightly sleep interruptions. ;)

The Lancome jar is glass and the scent of the Dr Lewinn’s is so pretty, I couldn’t put my finger on it either but now that you say it, I will go and smell the Garnier BB Cream! I will continue to enjoy my Dallas and make sure to keep watching the new stuff, it is intriguing and just keeps the audience saying…“no way” or “your kidding”. It’s just so far fetched to me but that’s a soap opera!

I’m really enjoying this cream, thanks for the trial. I usually miss out because I don’t check my email every day so happy to be envolved
