Palmolive Oil Infusions Review + Giveaway [Closed]

palmolive oil infusions

When it comes to body moisturisers, I’m pretty fussy. I like my moisturisers nice smelling but not too over-powering. I’m also not a fan of the thick ones that are hard to apply. I’ve been trialing the new Palmolive Oil Infusions range for the last four weeks and have been pleasantly surprised. If you read until the end, there may even be a giveaway☺.

Inspired by the essential oils trend exploding in health and beauty, the Oil Infusions range is enriched with an infusion of essential oils and botanical extracts including avocado oil, jojoba oil, jasmine extract, macadamia oil, rose oil and citrus oils.

The Palmolive Oil Infusions skin care collection consist of:

  • Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Moisturiser
  • Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Wash
  • Palmolive Oil Infusions Liquid Hand Wash
  • Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Bar

Body Moisturisers, Body Wash & Hand Wash range is available in:

  • Jasmine with Avocado Oil
  • Citrus with Jojoba Oil
  • Rose with Macadamia Oil

Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Moisturiser

This moisturiser has the perfect consistency. It’s ultra hydrating, absorbs quickly into the skin and does not leave skin feeling greasy at all. I use this straight out of the shower and 3 pumps is more than enough to moisturise my entire body. All three blends smell amazing and my favourite is the rose with macadamia oil.

Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Wash & Body Bar

Both products lather really well. For the body wash, use only a small amount is required. I like to use two pumps with a cleansing puff but there are bubbles everywhere so you can definitely use just one pump. The body wash leaves skin feeling cleansed less the dryness afterwards.

I’m pretty impressed with the packaging. I’ve placed the hand wash on my kitchen sink since receiving it and four weeks later the bottle still looks good as new. The hand wash feels luxurious and my hand feels clean but not dry. It’s our go to hand wash in the kitchen now. I’ve tested this hand wash on some seriously greasy hands and it has passed the test!

Natural Instinct Sunscreen Giveaway

Natural instinct sunscreen giveaway

Hi everyone!! I’m back from my trip to Brazil and US… boy did that go by quickly! To kick off my first post, Natural Instinct and Beauty & Things will be giving away one sunscreen pack containing three products: kids, invisible and a tinted face sunscreen.

Natural Instinct sunscreens are free from petrochemicals, mineral oils, PEGs, artificial fragrances, sulphates, parabens, silicones, titanium dioxide, and over 400 potentially harmful ingredients.

We took a tube of the Invisible Sunscreen with us to Brazil. The husband and I used it everyday for two weeks while over there. We didn’t get sunburned which shows the sunscreen was working its magic. However, I haven’t tried using it in the Australian sun yet so can’t comment on that but this sunscreen does leave a white cast. According to the ingredients listed on the tube, Zinc Oxide is what causes the white cast. To combat the white cast, pat sunscreen on skin. The white cast usually disappears once the sunscreen has been absorbed into the skin anyway.

Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush + Giveaway

Happy Wednesday! Oh my goodness, it’s November already and soo close to Christmas. You’re in for a treat today, if you or a friend/family friend has frizzy hair then this is the post for you!! Plus, there’s a sneaky giveaway at the end of this post.

Today I’ll be reviewing the new Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush. This brush is designed to de-frizz and smooth out the hair. So if you have the troubled frizziness then you’ve got to try this brush out. When I was researching on this brush, I found that it’s super popular in Asia and there’s a couple of more designs compared with what was released in the Australian market.

Static electricity exists everywhere especially in dry environment. That’s why your hair gets frizzy and messy easily. To help you get rid of this annoying issue, we bring easier solution: ionic styling brush. The ionizer generates negative ions to neutralize positive charge of static electricity. It helps to reduce frizz and bring back smoothness and shine to your hair instantly.

Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush

Let me describe my hair to you. My hair is straight and thin. There’s been a few occasion when I go to the hairdresser and they ask me if I have permanently straightened my hair and I say no. They give me a confused look, especially after washing my hair, it’s dead straight. The only time my hair frizzes up is when I roll around too much in bed and the following morning my ends are frizzy.

The most effective way to use this brush is when hair is a little damp and brush through from the roots to tips. So essentially, I use this brush the following morning and not after I’ve washed my hair. I would wet my hair and then brush through my hair especially at the ends.

The Ionic magic is activated by flicking the switch on the right of the brush, the Ionic icon will illuminate and that’s when you know you have some Ionic action happening.

The bristle cushion has just enough pressure so that it provides even distribution around the head. The brush is not waterproof so please don’t bring it into the shower. The brush bristles can be easily removed and washed by pressing the button under the bristles.

Being clumsy and uncoordinated, I would have preferred if the brush had a handle because I’m really prone to dropping things. However since I’ve been using it for 3 weeks or so, I haven’t actually dropped it yet and it does fit quite well in my hand.

The brush is operated with 1 AAA battery which is included in the box so it can be used straight from purchase.

This RRP for this brush is $39.95, it’s reasonably priced so great as a Christmas present.

In collaboration with Philips & Beauty and Things, we will be giving away one Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush.

To win this fabulous prize, all you have to do is tell me in 25 words or less “What do you do to de-frizz your hair?”
