Not only does this Ladybird bubble bar look adorable, it also smells divine! It has a floral scent with slight hint of mint from the peppermint oil. It’s perfect to perk up any day while leaving your skin feeling amazingly smooth. To use this bar, crumble it under running water and watch your bath transform.

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb

If your mum is into roses, you should definitely pick this up for her. It smells like rose heaven and there’s even rose petals floating around. It looks amazing when you drop it into your bath and watch it dissolve. This bath bomb contains Sicilian lemon, floral geranium and Turkish rose oil. Definitely a lovely addition to the Mother’s Day collection.

Will you be picking up any of these for Mother’s Day?

Winter Skin Care and Giveaway

How cold has it been in Melbourne lately? Lucky for me, I have two weeks off work but I can still feel the icy cold winds when I’m walking to the gym at night. The harsh cold weather really dries out the skin so today I’m going to show you what I use to keep my skin hydrated.

Moisturiser – At night, I use a thicker and more rich moisturiser to help give that extra bit of hydration. A good moisturiser will absorb quickly and doesn’t feel heavy. I wake up with smooth refreshed skin.

Rosehip Oil – There are many benefits of using rosehip oil such as diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving skin elasticity and texture. I mainly use rosehip oil in winter as it can really help with dry skin and evening out my skintone.

Eye cream – It’s amazing no matter how many hours you sleep in winter, it’s always a struggle to wake up. That’s why in the cooler months, I switch to an eye cream that helps with dark circles.

Face masks – I use plenty of face masks in winter. It helps to give you that extra boost your skin needs. Plus, it’s always quite relaxing doing a face mask while watching your favourite youtuber.

Body Conditioner – Have you ever got out of the shower with super tight skin? I have! To prevent that from happening, I like to slather body conditioner all over my body and rinse it off before getting out of the shower. A body conditioner will leave your skin smooth and sliky, definitely a treat for your skin.

Body Moisturiser – After the body conditioner, I then moisturise my skin with body cream for dry skin.

Hand Cream – Especially in winter, I always carry a hand cream around in my bag. As I mentioned in my other post, my knuckles would crack and it gets quite painful.

winter skin care lips

Lips – People with dry lips such as myself always ensure we carry at least one lip balm around in our bags or at our work desk. Carmex is a winter must have product because it’s known for it’s deep moisturising benefits. I still remember the first time I used the original Carmex lip balm – I got the famous ‘Carmex tingle’, it really feels like it’s working magic.

Hair care routine and products

Now that my exam is out of the way, I am back dear readers!!! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Today I wanted to talk about my hair care routine and products. Although it does change a lot, this is what I have been loving the past one and a half months.

My current hair routine My current hair routine

Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo & Conditioner – This stuff is amazing. My hair is left soft, silky and tangle-free. After a month of using this, I found that my hair doesn’t get oily as quickly and I can wash my hair every 4-5 days.

My current hair routine

Lush Roots – As reviewed here. I love how Roots leaves my scalp feeling cool and refreshed. I’ve been using this once every fortnight and if my hair is feeling really flat, I use it once a week. I’m getting really addicted to Lush products.

Kerastase Touche Perfection – This is a balm for people like me with dry ends. It helps to quickly add moisture to the ends of my hair. Some mornings I wake up having really dry ends so I whip out my Touche Perfection and my hair is looking healthy again.

Eleven Miracle Hair Treatment – I use this after I wash my hair and before I blow dry. I wait for my hair to dry a little and then slather my hair in this treatment. If you see me with shiny hair, it’s all thanks to Eleven Miracle Hair Treatment.

My current hair routine

GHD Heat Protect Spray – This is one of my favourite heat protectant sprays. Whenever I blow dry or curl my hair, this is what I use.

Indola Innova Wonder Blow-Dry – As you all probably know that my hair is fairly long and it takes me forever to blow dry. So when I was offered a chance to try Wonder Blow-Dry, I was pretty excited…a product that speeds up the blow-dry process? Yes please! After using it for a month, I can safely say that it does help to speed up the blow drying process by about 5-10mins. The spray does smell like alcohol and I’m guessing that’s what is helping my hair dry faster.

Tell me what’s one hair product you been loving lately?
