Aloe vera mixed with a little bit of an oil of some type will help a lot.
Also, if you refrigerate it to save for the next application, the cold will really help soothe the burn.

Topic: Talkback / elizabeth arden christmas colour blockbuster2014

I haven’t bought this one, but I did buy something similar from Elizabeth Arden around 2 years ago and loved it. I’m still using it, as the makeup is mainly powder products & lasts and lasts. Great lipsticks & mascara too. One of their brushes, I use every single day for my eyeshadows. I found it great value for money, and 2 years on, I’m really happy I bought it.

Plus the beauty case they give with it, is fantastic. I’ve used mine for every trip or holiday away over the past 2 years

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

I decided to get my nails professionally done as I am going on holidays on Tuesday :)
So I have acrylic nails with a gel colour on top. I’m really pleased with the work my nail tech did and glad I chose a bright coral colour – perfect for summer.

That is a lovely bright colour, Belle. It certainly is a great colour for summer :)

Thanks IndieAna :) I agree!

Topic: Talkback / !! WARNING!!! HAUL:D

My mum was in singapore so I managed to get her to pick me up two lipsticks from mac for $27 each. Velvet Teddy and Creme cup. Then on Tuesday I popped into mecca after I went to priceline (bought a few things there just back ups of items) and picked up the nars tinted moisturiser and the too faced christmas set. This is such awesome value! 12 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 2 bronzers and a mini mascara. They are also individually packaged so you can gift each section individually for stocking stuffers.

Gorgeous haul, hun! I especially love the look of the TF set! I’ve also been hearing lots about Velvet Teddy of late so I might need to check it out.

Our Body Shop had 15% off storewide today only which I noticed as I walked by. So I managed to pick up something for me.
I like the smell of the Fijian Lotus purse spray. Total for the 3 was $19.40.

Oh, great buys, Cherry, and what a bargain price too! I’ve always been curious about TBS wash cloth/sponges…do you like it so far?

So I may have made another Sephora order that just arrived… Woops haha.

So many PRETTIES, Sass!

I especially love the look of the Give Me Some Lip, Liner and Kat Von D pack!

I know what you mean by ‘woops’, somehow I’ve fallen into the ‘Woops’ category a bit too much myself of late. :P

I think this is the best time of year to shop at Sephora. They have such great value packs where you can try out so many different things! It may cost a fair bit to ship it hear but to me it’s worth it :)
Yes, that’s true. I try to pick up a few things each time I buy so it makes the shipping fees a bit more worthwhile! :)

Topic: Men’s grooming / HELP ME !!! Cant get him to shave that beard!

If he don’t want to shave then don’t force him to do so. But you can do one thing you can change his look so he can look his best in his makeover. Get him some streetwear clothing and accessorise with nice watch or bracelet.

I know how you feel! I burned my arm with a straightener and the thing that worked best for me was aloe vera gel and lavender oil. It helped a lot and reduced scarring.

Topic: Bodycare / period pain and how you deal with it?

hot water bottle always helps me and i take 1 panadol right when the pain starts and i apply tiger balm as well eventhough it wont reduce the pain it just gives me some relief . and lie on ur stomach or lean fwd while in sitting position it helps to reduce the pain.

Topic: Bodycare / period pain and how you deal with it?

Nowadays I just “roll with it”. It sounds insane but I’m pre-PCOS and my period has been absent for up to a year at a time. During approximately 50% of my 20s my period didn’t appear. My period pain is noticeable but it’s a reminder to me that I may have some small hope of being a mother one day. I increase my water consumption and that’s it really (if I had a regular partner I’d surely see if sex were helpful in the premenstrual stage – nice idea misfortune8).

I suppose it makes up for the extreme period I had as a teen that was combined with severe migraines (which were an awful addition to being a chronic migraine sufferer), vomiting, diarrhoea and extremely heavy flow (pad changes at least once an hour). Water bottles and a lot of nothing was how I coped with it back then.

Topic: Talkback / ac on tour kit

I have been using it a fair bit, the colours are okay and it is comparable to the Anastasia Kit but it is a bit more difficult to blend. That being said you can work with it, and it is a lot cheaper. I think it has a lot of hype as there aren’t a whole lot of powder contour products available like this one by other ‘Drugstore’ brands.

It’s good for the price but definitely not ‘amazing’

i haven’t tried anastasia kit as i don’t want to spend that much money and i want to swatch the products first before i even buy it lol! i would love to have a creamy textured contour palette!!

Topic: Talkback / ac on tour kit

I’ve been trying to get my hands in it for ages but it’s been sold out. Back in stock online but the $10 postage makes it expensive. I think it’s meant to be back in tours next week. Would love to hear more reviews too :)

it was sold out everywhere and i think its back in stock in their australis website and if u sign up for newsletter u will get 25% discount. ya shipping charge is always expensive. and check out priceline too. have u swatched the product?

Topic: Talkback / ac on tour kit

I have tried it, and I find that most of the colours don’t work for me. I like the neutral brown and the yellow and pink highlight shades, but the other three shades are worthless as they don’t suit my skin. I think that the palette is great for the price.

i am worried abt that too whether the colours will actually work on my skin !! thanks for the reply!
