Review: Trilogy Everything Balm

Everything Balm_Productonly_

 

 

Well the names says it all -“Everything Balm” really is for everything, and in this economic climate its always a bonus to be able to purchase a product that is so  multi-useful. Another plus is the completely environmentally friendly packaging, 100% natural active fair trade ingredients and fragrances and no animal testing.

“Everything in here is real and natural and has no preservatives, creating beauty that is only skin deep, because no-one really cares about having good looking tonsils.”

This multi-tasker helps to save you time and money, its a great moisturiser for all skin types. Helps to hydrate your skin, great for the body, chapped lips, nails and cuticles, as a massage oil and also can be used to sooth nappy rash ( an alternative to mineral oil based baby care).

everythingbalm2One of the great things about the Everything Balm is the packaging, besides the cute little pouch it comes in it also features a spatula which makes it hygienic to scoop out what you need and doesn’t contaminate the rest of the tub! I found this very appealing as I use it mainly on my heels and lips. ( you are probably aware by now how I can be a tad OCD where hygiene is concerned)

If you have ever tried the Elizabeth Arden 8hour cream (still also a firm favourite as well) I would compare it to that, yes that’s how good it is!

I have been using this for well over a month now and I’ve barely used much at all, I can see this lasting a long time. All you need is a tiny scoop because when you heat it up in your hands it spreads very well.

This can be bought in two handy sizes the 95ml $30AUD(this is huge and will last a VERY long time, pictured) and 45ml $18AUD(perfect for travelling with). The ingredients include: 100% free-range honey, coconut oil, marula oil, rosehip oil, extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil and evening primrose oil.

everythingbalmI could possibly go on and on about how impressed I am with the product but I don’t want to ramble on forever. Instead I’ll leave you with another picture of the product.

This was given to me, but as always opinions are my own. I wouldn’t waste my time or yours by talking up a product I didn’t like or find useful!

Review -MOR Little Luxuries

 

Hey dolls,

Here is my review for MOR’s Little Luxuries range, the set I’m reviewing is the Lychee Flower scent.

 

(I didn’t leave the tin at my friends, I have no idea what I did with it 🙁 )

Sorry, been MIA yet again. It has been a busy week.

Changing of the Seasons

With the Australian summer just around the corner and the weather already heating up it really is time to get ready.

Exfoliate-

If you aren’t exfoliating regularly its time to start now!

Trying to save some cash? Well you don’t have to pay big buck for this you could easily DIY it, Click here for an example recipe. But there are many on the internet just do a search!

Have you tried exfoliating gloves before? glovesThey are  inexpensive and really do help.

Exfoliating is especially needed if you are a tanner.

Two of my favourite fake tans are

SugarBaby Suntanned Sweeties

sugarbabytanner

which is a really easy spray on tan and I find is a great ‘natural’ colour for my pale as the moon body!

Another I like is the Dove Gradual Tanners.

dovetanner

They are great for slowly building up a nice tan.

Please remember Guys and Dolls if you tan make sure its a fake bake as there is nothing cool about skin cancer!

The sun  also helps to age your skin faster so please remember to wear sunscreen !

Moisturise-

After exfoliating its really important to moisturise. There are many choices to pick from ranging from the cheap like one of my favourites

Nivea Moisturising Lotion niveawhich retails at around $8 depending on where you purchase to the more expensive

MOR Body Butter

( I love this, it was originally given to me as a gift and i 350_Pomegranate.Body.Butter.jpglove the scent and feel of them!)

Feet and Hands-

Out go the boots and in come the sandals. This is the time to start those neglected winter feet!

There are many heel balms and foot files you can purchase to do them yourself either between appointments or if your like me to do completely yourself. (I hate people touching my feet, i know weird phobia!)

Why not try a bright polish on those toes to get yourself in the summer mood!

For your hands another product I like is handsSally Hansen Hand Resurfacer

to help smooth those dry winter hands.

Face-

Going to the beach or pools,   the water and humidity really don’t mix well with makeup so we tend to wear less.

Lash and brow tinting  can help give a more polished look without having to apply makeup and can last a few weeks.

Lash tinting in particular can help open your eyes by defining and giving the appearance of longer lashes.

So what are you plans for getting ready for summer and what are the products you reach for?
