Topic: Talkback / WANTED: 10 MEMBERS FOR A NEW DISCOVERY BAG

Has anyone received their DB yet?
It’s cutting it a little bit fine to test out the products thoroughly as our reviews are due on the 20th, this Monday.

Got home now to find the Discovery Bag is here – 2 lovely items this month!

Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub (smells wonderful!)
and
nutrimetics Ultra Care + Platinum Hand Cream – with reviews due by Monday I’m not sure I’ll see a reduction in the appearance of pigmentation on my hands in 4 days! Have applied it already and it too smells lovely!

Great DB! Thanks for the picture Kassalee.

Topic: Anything but beauty / What is Annoying you at the moment...???

It’s okay if there’s nothing, lol… feel free just to rant

People talking loudly on their mobile phones in shopping Malls or public transport..we really are NOT interested in what you did last night or are going to do tonight. Dim it down or wait till your in a more private place.

OMG that drives me mad too! People who talk loudly on their phones while in public toilets are even worse!
I hate it when people use their phones in the toilet. It’s so gross!!
It’s one of my pet peeves too. Sometimes I can hear my students on the loo from my office (around the corner from where the ladies toilets are).

1. It’s unhygenic
2. The other person doesn’t need to hear you wee
3. The toilet is echo-y. No one needs to hear your conversation at extreme volume.

Confession time…..one day I was in the loo, and the lady on the cubicle next to me was having a loud conversation on her phone. I let one rip! It was an absolute ripper! It was so loud that I was too embarrassed to come out of the cubicle. The lady says to the person on the other end of the phone…..OMG did you hear that!
Blushing as I type this!

Topic: Skincare / What are some of your favourite cream cleansers?

(Normal to dry skin)I’ve used Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser for years…I find it to be the best for really getting off all my makeup and a deep cleanse.Also love the Avon clearskin blackhead remover scrub,as it clears any spots up and removes dry skin.Virgin olive oil is what I use to take my eye makeup off with.

Topic: Skincare / Skincare problems

I have very dry skin and need some face cream, I don’t have any clue what to use anymore. Any suggestions? Also can I buy them online? I never have the time to go out and buy anything.

thanks

Have you tried a good face serum to moisturize your skin? try to stick to a all natural products though, most product out in the market have additives and chemicals and tend to dry out your skin…

Topic: Skincare / Skincare problems

I think following a regular skincare routine will help with most of the skin care related issues.. but you have to be strict and be patient with it though… I recently went on a skincare chemical detox and threw out all my products with additives and chemicals and bought a whole set of natural skincare products.. the thing is You don’t need dozens of products, just stick to a good cleanser, toner and a moisturiser and do it every morning and night..
Also a good natural face oil or a serum is a really good addition to your skincare regimen.. There are so many out in the market lately, I have seen some in Priceline or there are few good brands online too… At the moment I’m trying Crushed Pepper brand and so far I’m happy with the results… If you can find Rose hip oil, it’s also meant to be good for your skin..

definitely coconut oil.. Its so moisturising for your skin specially if you apply at night…
You can also use body lotion bars.. they are this new thing I came across online – made out of coconut oil and shea butter.. I trying Crushed Pepper brand and they are amazingly good.. love them :)

also you should try using natural skincare without any harsh chemicals in them…

Topic: Anything but beauty / What is Annoying you at the moment...???

Paula’s ‘beautypedia’ is annoying me!!

WHY on earth would she give something a 4* rating and then proceed to rip it to shreds and say it’s a terrible product. I read her reviews out of interest BUT I take them with a grain of salt as I think she is biased, as she’s also promoting her own products but I just don’t understand why give something a high star rating, then decribe it as something that has a worse review that a 1 star product. She even says ‘what a disaster’… In fact most of Origins products have this kind of review from her.

http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautypedia-skin-care-reviews/by-brand/origins/_/Drink-Up-Intensive-Overnight-Mask-to-Quench-Skins-Thirst

I don’t really like her site either MsSparkles. I don’t even bother to visit it anymore.
I’ve got some Origins Drink Up Intensive overnight mask, and I really like it.

I need to get out of the habit of visiting it.
Glad you like it! I’ve heard some great things about it and now that it’s coming into winter it’s probably going to come in handy!
Me too Ms Sparkles. I have a bad habit of looking at it. I agree with a lot of what Paula says, but seriously, who died and made her the absolute authority on the science of skincare?

Hey I noticed when I clicked on this it only had one star

Really This is what I see:
Work PC probably has gremlins, doesn’t like to work for me any other day.
If yours is showing 1 star, then that’s more reflective of the spray she’s given it! lol

I like using peanut butter in cooking or as a base flavour for cookies and desserts but think i’ve gotten a bit sick of it on it’s own over the years. I really want to try all these new healthy nut butters though or might try making my own one day :)

Topic: Make-up / Brush care + search for the perfect Bronzer brush

Hiya beauty babes!
I am constantly on the search for a better technique to brush cleansing. I have spent copious hours on google on so many blog sites that all suggest different ways to wash your brushes.

All of my brushes are by Real Techniques as they have not let me down for application and their life span seems to be infinite.

I wash my brushes every fortnight on a day where I’m not having to reapply or having a make-up free day. I use a gentle bay shampoo, a gentle dish washing liquid and a drop of olive oil to keep the brushes soft. I don’t think this is necessarily working for my brushes anymore as they haven’t been feeling as nice and I’m always finding excess product deep within the brushes still.
Seeing as we’re all self-acclaimed beauty experts on here, I would love some suggestions for a better brush cleansing routine/miracle product to make the process a little easier for me.

Oh and on a side note, I am on the hunt for a new bronzing brush. I am willing to spend a bit more on it if it is worth the investment.

Please send some suggestions my way gals! I would be ever so grateful xx

wow I never thought of putting a few drops of olive oil on them, thanks for the tip

I was wanting to buy a Maybelline Colour Drama lip pencil in ‘Minimalist’. Yippee! There was one left! But…..someone has opened the packet to test it! FFS why do people have to do that!
As for the Essence stand, OMG what a total mess! I wanted to buy a So Glow to try. They had 4 or 5 in stock, but every single one of them had finger prints on them. Yuck!

Topic: Make-up / Brush care + search for the perfect Bronzer brush

I’ve also got all the RT brushes and love them. I spot clean them with my MAC brush cleaner after every application and deep clean with baby shampoo every week. My RT miracle sponge is a bit of a pain to clean though but it does give a flawless finish so I’m not complaining (not really :p)
