Topic: Hair / Can you use Baby Shampoo on adult hair?

I agree with cat lover. I have coloured hair though and when i did happen to use it, my hair felt like straw it was awful and i found that it stripped alittle of the colour :( so i would not use it again, it is full of horrible chemicals that is supposed to go on a babies head, revolting stuff.

Topic: Hair / Can you use Baby Shampoo on adult hair?

Yes bmill229, you can used baby shampoo on your hair, but be wary that it really strips the hair and makes it ‘squeaky clean’. I’ve found that it’s a good thing to do once in a while if you’re experiencing product build-up on your hair. I’d never use it on a baby though!!

Topic: Hair / Can you use Baby Shampoo on adult hair?

Hi beauties,

I have been using Johnson’s Baby Shampoo to clean my make-up brushes of over a week now and I was wondering if I can use Baby Shampoo on my semi wavy hair. Also on my scalp and roots.

Thanks for helping me out.

Topic: Bodycare / Natural Deodorant

I was using Nutter deodorant for the longest time and was loving it but sadly the store that stocked became so incredibly unreliable !
so I’ve switched to The Body Crystal liquid roll on which is about $7 for 100mls and you can get it pretty much anywhere..
strangely, I remember trying the actual crystal one years ago and it did not work but the liquid roll on does.
:)

Topic: Anything but beauty / Things you do to make you feel happy instantly.

I have some lovely jewellery from TVSN. I love that they have unusual stones.
I was lucky enough to go to their jewellery showcase and see the pieces close up. I got to chat with the suppliers as well. So fun.
I can’t wait until your piece arrives Cat Lover. So good to spoil yourself sometimes.

Oh wow! The showcase must have been so much fun Pink Hornet. Yes, it is lovely the way they have unusual gem stones. I bought is a Tanzanite trilogy ring. What sort of pieces have you bought from them?

Topic: Anything but beauty / Things you do to make you feel happy instantly.

I was feeling really low and flat the other day, which I suppose is not unusual given that I suffer with depression. On a whim I did something I’d never done before – I bought a piece of jewellery from TVSN. It was so exciting. I can’t wait for it to arrive!!

Oooh exciting cat lover! I saw a ring I really liked on TVSN recently in my birthstone (sapphire), thought it would’ve made a nice engagement ring actually…but of course it was out of my reach (and I’m so far away from being a fiancée to anyone, it’s not funny!), so I’ll just have to window shop instead. That channel is dangerous!

Shopping can make me happy, but only once I find something in my size, something that I like & something that I can afford.

Music in general is what uplifts me. I had a big singalong in my bedroom the other night to one of my favourite artists – just cranked a song up & began singing along loudly. Felt rather happy afterwards.

Topic: Anything but beauty / loyalty cards App

I tried to use this today in BigW and Woolies (Everyday Rewards card) and it wouldn’t scan.
I didn’t try it in Priceline, is believe it or not, I didn’t actually buy anything there today (shock, horror!).
I guess at least they have your membership number to key in, but it looks like I’ll need to keep the Everyday Rewards card in my wallet.

A lot of scanners can’t read phone screens. At Coles they got extra scanners installed on all the registers – the reason is they’re “2d” scanners that will read any smartphone screen. So since then I’ve popped my loyalty cards in my phone to save space. I still keep my health food shop card cause their scanners can’t read phones and its a big, long number.

I started out using key ring but find stocard is way better.

(the scanners in Coles face towards you on regular checkouts and on self checkouts are on the right hidden under the flybuys display where they keep temporary cards – if you can’t see it just ask because phones won’t scan on the other scanners)

Topic: Bodycare / Natural Deodorant

I absolutely love love love the all natural deodorant made by a local company located in Burleigh Heads. The brand name is A BIT HIPPY and the deodorant works a treat, it’s been the only natural one I like that smells amazing (like a light musk) and actually works for me. At only $7.50 I’m more than happy to support a beautiful local brand :)

http://abithippy.com.au/mineral-cream-deodorant.html

Thanks, I’ve bookmarked that one in case fresca doesn’t work for me.

Unfortunately for me, I react to the aluminium in deodorants so I can’t even use the supermarket ones. They work great for a couple of weeks and then boom – unbearably itchy , red armpits.

Topic: Industry watch / Priceline v's Chemist Warehouse

I’d say Chemists Warehouse, just because of their fairly regular 50% off sales for cosmetics. They don’t have that many brands but I use revlon foundation, rimmel eyeliner and maybelline mascara so I often get bargins (and spend way too much) there. Their vitamins are always on sale too, plus my script only cost me $6!

Check out cliniques website for the packs. I’m tempted to buy myself the even skintone pack- 69 bucks, full sized serum, the moisturiser, the hand cream and the dark circle eye cream

I had no issues with mine either! I do hope there is actually less sneak peeks, it was very underwhelming to already know what was going to be in the box.

Topic: Industry watch / xmas 2014 gift packs

I’ve seen some Revlon gift packs, one that stood out to me is a pack of 5 matte/lacquer balms for just $29.95.

Also at MyChemist, there’s an exclusive Revlon gift pack that has 3 lip butters for just $24.99.

They sound really good, where was the Revlon balm pack at Stackcats?

Hey Linda sorry I forgot to mention in my original post, I saw the Revlon balm pack at Priceline. I remember it definitely has Sultry (matte) and Provocateur (lacquer), can’t remember the rest though

The MyChemist one is called Sorbet Kisses pack, I think it has the newer shades of lip butter. You get 3 lip butters plus a small lipstick bag

Topic: Industry watch / Priceline v's Chemist Warehouse

I shop at both & enjoy the shopping experience at both for different reasons.

I find beauty product wise, there’s only a few major makeup brands in CW – if I want real variety in brands, Priceline beats CW hands down. For skincare & body products they’re both quite similar in brands & prices, unless one has a special deal happening of course. Across both stores, I rarely seem to pay full price for my purchases which is good.

CW definitely is cheaper for scripts for me – often by a fairly big amount

Topic: Industry watch / xmas 2014 gift packs

There are some amazing gift packs around this year, especially from the big brands like lancome clinique and estee lauder.

I just brought my mum the clinique repairwear pack for 79 and it has a full size serum and others.
Just thought if anyone sees hears or reads about good gift packs this year, list it hear for others to buy and know about…

That’s a great deal for the Clinique set. I love how they gift box their sets too, I saw some on display in Myers the other day. Very colourful, I’d love one under the tree for me :)
