Topic: Talkback / Best In Beauty 2014 Winners

Ahhhh! How exciting Anita!!!!!!!! I hope mine turns up later today. I’m going out for the day tomorrow so I don’t want to miss the delivery if it comes tmr otherwise I’ll have to cope without it through the weekend!!

And OMG I can’t believe the very famous straightener was included this year as I’ve read that it’s never been included in prior years BIB send outs. I’ve never owned one from the brand before so I cannot wait until mine arrives!!!! Excitement overload.

Would love to see images as soon as you can Anita!

OMG! My box has just arrived! Will post photos as soon as I unpack it! I am so glad my little one is at daycare today!

That’s great Anita1502! May I ask if the parcel was delivered by courier or by Australia Post? I’m working till Friday before my Xmas leave starts so I won’t be home to sign for any deliveries. I hope it arrives on Monday or after..

I’m in Melbourne by the way

It was Fastway Courier I think, definitely not Australia Post. I came back home from hospital, had a check up after my op, got all clear and started exercising with fitnessblender. I saw a white van through the window and then a poor guy trying to lift a huge box. I politely finished my workout ( 15 minutes more of waiting didn’t kill me) and then started unpacking. I still can’t believe it.

Bugger, I have got a new system in my iphone and I don’t know how to copy the pics to my pc. And the battery in my camera is flat, charging it now! I can’t upload the photos via my phone, don’t know how to. I am on the Sunshine Coast, in Palmwoods to be exact!. I don’t want to spoil the fun for other girls but I can reveal that OMG I received the very famous hair straightener! It is just impossible! I won’t be able to sleep tonight!

Omg!!! Seriously! I’ve got one of those famous hair straighteners, so I intend to give this one to my daughter in law. I’m not going to tell her yet though. She will be over the moon!

That’s awesome Anita! Where are you located? I’m guessing you are probably in Sydney, since you are the first. I’m in Darwin, so mine will probably be a few more days. How exciting!

Topic: Bodycare / what's a good 'family' body moisturiser?

I would say sorboline would to the trick. The Redwins one is good because it’s paraben free. The supermarkets also have good generic sorboline creams too.

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / My first Fake Tan, I need some help.

I always use disposable rubber gloves to apply my fake tan. You have a bit more control that way rather than a mitt. I also love to do a full body scrub (I use the frank coffee scrub) first as it’s awesome for removing dry flaky skin and is really moisturising. Good luck :)

Topic: Bodycare / what's a good 'family' body moisturiser?

I use St Ives in the pump pack. It’s lasted me a whole year, so with a family of four I guess the time would be shorter. But it’s great value and you get different sorts. Also good old vaseline body moisturiser in the pump pack is also awesome! Plenty of choices around, just depends on what you’re after I guess. And if you want it to be scented nicely.

Topic: Health & wellbeing / Lift Esteem

Just to let you beauties know that my thoughts are with all of you.
I have concentrated on the family crisis for the last few months.
I miss you all. I miss a lot of my life that I have chosen to put on hold while I prioritised others.
Hopefully, in the New Year things should ease and I will be back with you all more regularly.
Take care all of you, those who are struggling, those who support and those who do both.
xox

It’s lovely to see you Pink Hornet. I hope things are beginning to sort themselves out for you and that your health is holding up. As women, we all inevitably find ourselves in caring roles during family crises even when we are battling our own problems – it’s not an easy task. Do look after yourself PH. Hope to see a lot more of you in the New Year xoxo

Topic: Make-up / What's your favourite tinted moisturiser/BB cream?

I swear by Dr Jart+, for my fair skin it does the trick, has great coverage and leaves a luminous finish with a high SPF, my skin didn’t break out at all. Expensive but well worth it as a BB Cream. I got mine from fresh (online) as its hard to source these BB Creams within a standard department store.

Topic: Bodycare / what's a good 'family' body moisturiser?

I’m looking for a good daily body lotion, something that would suit family use – I have a teenage son and daughter and my son in particular has started to get quite dry arms. Any ideas? I would prefer something I can get from the supermarket.

Topic: Make-up / What's your favourite tinted moisturiser/BB cream?

I thought I’d create a topic for people to post their thoughts on BB creams, CC creams and tinted moisturisers, their favourites etc etc. There’s probably already a topic like this somewhere, but I couldn’t find it.

Creating this topic was also a teeny bit self serving, as I don’t have a favourite and have always been let down by the BB creams & tinted moisturisers I try. Any recommendations for pale skinned girls?

HI Jesse395,

You can also take a look here to find a BB cream best suited to your skin type/concern:

Topic: Help! I’ve got a beauty dilemma / My first Fake Tan, I need some help.

Hey Beauties,

On the Friday, I ordered Sukin Sunless Bronzing Gel from the beautorium and it’s going to be my first fake tan. Do you beauties have any tips or tricks or have any experience on apply a fake tan. Is there a check list of steps that I need to do before applying a fake tan? What is the best way to maintain fake tan for a couple of days to a week and what’s the best way to remove hair from your legs before a fake tan?

I read the article on Monday did help but only a little but want to know more and I am going to apply my fake tan at home. (http://www.beautyheaven.com.au/make-up/first-time-getting-a-spray-tan-13950)

This will be my first time applying a fake tan and I am not quite sure what to do.

The only two things that I know about fake tanning and fake tan products. St Tropez Applicator Mitt is a great mitt to use when applying fake tan (http://www.beautyheaven.com.au/body-health/spray-tan-fake-tan/26455-st-tropez-applicator-mitt) and it best to exfoliate your skin before a fake tan.

There the link of Sukin Sunless Bronzing Gel, the product that I am going to use. (http://www.beautyheaven.com.au/body-health/spray-tan-fake-tan/35686-sukin-sunless-bronzing-gel)

I can’t wait to read to your comments. Thanks for all the help and can’t see what you say about this topic.

I don’t really know much about gel tanning products, but I do know a bit about how to tan properly.

It’s really important to ensure you shave and exfoliate the day before, I have sometimes done it the day of and it works fine too. I exfoliate using a coffee scrub, such as franks, this does have oils in it so it can affect the tanning product if not washed off properly. Super important to focus on your dry areas, such as knees, ankles and elbows, you can apply a bit of moisturiser to these areas and then wipe it off before application.

I use a tanning mit to apply my tan (bondi sands), it’s really great for ensuring even colour and so your hands aren’t stained by the tanning product.

I sometimes do my tanning of a night, if I don’t have time to wait for it to dry properly and wash off the extra bronze coating. If I do have extra time, i’ll usually apply in the morning after my shower and then do some cleaning etc for a few hours and then i’ll wash it off. Obviously the longer you leave it the darker you’ll be. So it’s up to you.

I’ve read a few reviews about the product you’ve purchased and it seems like it fades after a week or so, evenly (which is great! No patches), it also darkens with each application you apply. The best thing I can suggest for maintaining your tan is to moisturise, and avoid exfoliating or using shower puffs!
