Topic: Anything but beauty / loyalty cards App

I tried the app for the first time today at T2 and they refused to even try scanning it as they said it never works :/
Will try it at Priceline/Woolies next week and see how it goes…

Did they manually key in the numbers?
They must have those old scanners mentioned in the app!

Topic: Skincare / Any Antipodes fans?

I have the saviour balm. I had pretty bad hayfever last few weeks and this balm saved my nose. I applied the balm very frequently on my nose, my nose was only slightly red and not flaky at all!

The balm melts into oil when my finger touches it, but it doesn’t look too greasy on my face. Definitely not too shiny for it’s staying power

Oh this sounds really nice and soothing Cocoabutter.
I get pretty bad hayfever so this balm seems ideal.

Okay, another item added to my Antipodes wishlist ;)

Hi CherryBlossom, I’ve been looking for a steroid alternative for eczema on my face and I got this from Myer.
http://www.myer.com.au/shop/mystore/antipodes-saviour-skin-balm-75g It is still discounted, not as cheap as a 40% Priceline but still cheaper if your nose really needs some love :)

For facial eczema, it was showing very slow improvement, but then hayfever came around and quite literally hit me on the face :(

It is actually the Alpha H Instant Facial and it says to use after cleansing and follow straight after with serum and moisturiser? Thanks for your suggestion Rosie.

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / Help! Bumpy skin!

I think I know what your talking about. I get it when my skin is too dry and I shave and don’t use a good body moisturiser after. I suggest using a good body exfoliant and good moisturiser after. I think your skin is dry and it’s a reaction.

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / Dermalogica and acne scarring

Hi Adelina633, I used to have both eczema and pimples. I previously used Dermalogica products while I was working in the laser clinic but none of the products in that range worked for me. My friend introduced me to Nu Skin Clear Action Set. She suggested I mix some of the products up since I have eczema but the cleanser was amazing. It has salicylic acid which is a plant extract that penetrates the pores and clears out the dirt and impurities. If you look for any cleansers for pimples, that ingredient is a must. For scarring, the night cream of the Clear Action Set is amazing. It’s got ingredients in it that helps get rid of the dark spots and scars. I’m surprised I can’t find much recommendations on this website. Ever since I started using the products from this range, I haven’t looked back to any of my old products. Love it!

If it’s just a regular prize from the twice weekly competitions they post, they usually just arrive unannounced in the mail.

If it’s something special ie complete a survey & the first 100, you usually get an email too. If it’s a post a comment and the best win, they usually email you too

Topic: Industry watch / I have an idea...WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK ?

I like the idea a lot – it frustrates me that there’s a number of brands / products I just can’t get in Oz without either paying exorbitant shipping, or finding that they don’t ship down under & I’d need to use one of those services that can ship for me but cost a lot

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / I am a little confused.

The right instructions when using skin care products is:
- Cleanse
- Tone
- Serum
- Day/Night Cream.

Do not cleanse your skin twice as that will dry out your skin as it gets rid of your natural oils (especially individuals with dry or sensitive skin)

Topic: Industry watch / I have an idea...WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK ?

So,i have been thinking (dangerous,i know) about how it is either impossible OR expensive to get items we carn’t get here sent from the US,UK OR EU and how we can overcome that.I have used shipping companies before and they can get a bit exxy….so what if we had a “friend” in those countries /continents who could send them over for us..I am a member of a FB page that has buying,swapping and selling as it’s theme for all things beauty.It has a few girls from OS on the page and i started a conversation about the likelyhood of doing a “buy for me” service,whereby you did your online shopping,sent the link to the site and the items you wanted to the person and did a paypal payment to them after they got the shipping costs to here estimated and they then forwarded the products on once they received them.After much discussion on the page (and a LOT of pros,cons and “what ifs” being thrown about,it was decided to be a great idea,with a few US girls offering to do it for us.I did A LOT of research,legality checking and asking the page"s admin and it was all OK’D except the pages admin said “NO” due to the fact that people created fake FB profiles and sent a lot of spam to the page…and if it went international,that it would increase tenfold (something the group did not want).So beauties,here is my question….IF something like this was to pop up,would you be onboard,what do you see as a potential issue (taking into account that it would be a Paypal only transaction with a longterm member..so Paypal insurance would prevent any mishaps),that proof of shipping would be sent and it would be a given that for the time and effort involved at either end (yes,if someone in the US etc wanted something from here,we also would do this) a small extra fee (one US girl put out there a $10 fee for petrol,shipping materials etc would be fair) would be applicable.

I have diverted a little from beauty with today’s post. I have been asked many times from friends who were at Emily’s 21st for the recipe of the Thai Chicken Balls that I served.

Here it is for anyone who may have a cocktail party coming up. These are great both hot and cold and you will have people coming back for more

Topic: Techie talk / Forums SUGGESTION for BH

This is such a fantastic idea, i think there’s always been an occasion where I didn’t realise someone has replied to a post until way later and I feel very rude. This would make keeping track of our posts and replies so much easier. And for the people who don’t post in forums it could be useful to have a notifications tab for reminders for when trial reviews are due or like when reviews get published or something.

Topic: Techie talk / Forums SUGGESTION for BH

I’ve only just started getting into the forum side of BH but it sounds like a great idea. Other sites with forums that I’ve been on (like essential baby) allow users to follow forum topics and individual users and receive notifications when something new is posted :)

I clicked on the scanner not working part of the app and it explains that some stores are still using old scanners which don’t work with smartphones & recommendation is to ask sales assistant to manually key numbers in as Mel suggested :)
