*Review: Natura Siberica – Body butter and scrub

A few months back in October I attended a bloggers networking event in Sydney run by the lovely ladies over at BloggersUnitedAu. There we had the opportunity to talk to and find out more about different participating brands. One such brand was Natura Siberica which, had just recently been launched in Australia.

Everyone received a different product from the Natura Siberica line up in the massive goodie bag that was given out to all attendees and I received the Oblepikha Siberica body butter and scrub in mine. The Natura Siberica range is currently available at Chemist Warehouse ranging in price from $12.99 to $24.99 – so all in all, a pretty affordable body and hair care range.
But before I get away with myself, I have to be honest and say that I don’t love the body butter and scrub. In general the body butter and scrub are ok but there are a few issues to raise in the review.

Review: Fig+Yarrow Clay Mask {Rose}

This was purchased awhile ago from Urban Outfitters with my Aromatica Damask Rose Soothing Gel purchase and as I had mentioned earlier, I use this clay mask with the Rose gel as my liquid base. You can use any kind of liquid base (water, aloe vera, honey and yogurt come to mind) but keep in mind that for it to dry, the liquid base you’ve chosen must also evaporate so for example, honey or yogurt may take much longer than water to evaporate. It was $16 USD without shipping.
Overall the mask is effective and when used with the rose gel it’s even better. Read on for full details!

Review: Aromatica 95% Damask Rose Soothing Gel

I had first lain eyes on this beauty on Tracy’s (@fanserviced) Instagram account. It was cooling, had a clean ingredients list and most of all it was rose. As soon as I knew that I was sold and of course the only online retailer that sold it (Peach and Lily) would only ship it to me if I paid the same amount in shipping fees. So I did what any poor, kbeauty aficionado would do – I Googled the crap out of it. Turns out it’s sold on the Korean Aromatica website but no, they won’t ship to Australia – another crushing blow but salvation came from the most unlikely of places. Urban Outfitters.
That’s right, Urban Outfitters and they sold it at the same price that Peach and Lily was selling it for. At first I was incredulous but then I saw “Free Shipping to Australia and New Zealand on orders over $50”. At that moment I knew this was to be. I threw it into my cart along with a Rose clay mask from Fig+Yarrow and to make $50 I added in an Anastasia Dip Brow.

I’m going to be upfront. I love this. But why? You ask. Well read on to find out why!

Review: Nuxe – Reve De Miel Lip Balm

As Priceline recently had a 40% off skincare sale I obviously went down to replenish some staples (Bioderma and La Roche) but along the way (if you’re following my Instagram account you’ll know) I ended up picking up this Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip balm as well as the Trilogy toner mist (but that is for another post).
The main reason why I bought this was because a friend of mine uses it and said it was pretty good so I decided – why not? It’s on sale and is only $12 (as opposed to $20)
Spoiler alert: I do like it but it’s not ‘blow-your-socks-off’ amazing.

Review: Mizon Nonstop Waterful Aqua Cream

I bought this awhile ago but never got around to reviewing it as it was such a ‘meh’ product. I have not been able to find a cream moisturiser that didn’t break me out so in my last ditch effort to find a moisturiser I turned to more ‘gel’ like formulations, which, this product has. It did not break me out at but at the same time I didn’t feel that this was particularly moisturising. The Mizon Nonstop Waterful Aqua Cream didn’t horrify me, nor did it amaze me but instead of just being an average product I found that I didn’t enjoy using it very much. Overall, it is a decent product that I just couldn’t warm up to it.

Review: Antipodes Divine face oil & Vanilla pod cream

A while ago Priceline had a 40% off all skincare sale on and based on a friend’s recommendation, I picked this Antipodes mini set to try out their products. Best thing was it had only cost me $12! It is a limited edition set but there seemed to be a lot of stock when I was there last (a week ago?) and they are still selling these minis at Priceline. Antipodes is a New Zealand brand but I believe they are available world wide at any good department store. Their main selling point seems to be that they use organic products and that their products have been scientifically tested. Even though they did get an independent test done with fibroblast cells, I honestly would take ‘scientifically tested’ with a grain of salt. I mean applying the product to live cells and applying it to your face is very different.
But anyway, this isn’t a scientific blog! It’s a beauty/lifestyle blog, so on to more interesting things!
