My Experience with

So what is sleek? For those who don't know it is a makeup brand based in London. Sleek is a drugstore brand, very affordable and high quality from what I've seen on youtube. You can buy sleek cosmetics from London which means that we obviously can't get it in Australia.

And so begins my journey with In order to make a purchase online you'll need to make an account with them. This takes a few seconds, not a big deal. 

14th of August at about 9.30pm Australian time which is about 12.30pm London time:
I placed my order.The process was very simple, just follow the steps (you're reading this post so you'll be fine). They don't allow you to pay through paypal  so you'll need a mastercard, visa, visa debit card etc. 

I received an email stating that my order has been accepted (at this point the package hasn't been shipped yet). I double checked and made a minor error with my address (AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH). 

15th of August: 
I sent them an email with the correct address apologising for the mistake. 

Morning 16th of August:
I received an email back (fast right...) asking for my web code (you'll get this after your order is completed). So I sent an email to the worker assigned to me then a few seconds later received an automated email stating that he wouldn't be back at work until the 30th of August. REALLY...REALLY... 

I kept reading and noticed that there were 2 email addresses (for urgent queries): one for IT assistance and the other for sales and distribution (PERFECT). Well... So I forwarded the email with all the details. 

9.04pm, 16th of August:
FINALLY...I've gotten the confirmation email that the package has been dispatched with the correct address and now all that was left to do was wait... 

So just in case your confused:
(1) you receive an email saying that your order has been ACCEPTED
(2) you receive a 2nd email saying that they have dispatched/sent out your order (when your card is charged)

23rd of August:


They get a thumbs up for fast delivery and good customer service so I'd highly recommend checking them out. It took 6 business days, exactly one week including the weekend. Which was ridiculously fast.  

They've changed the packaging of the eye shadows which I found weird. But who really cares I can't wait to use these products.

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 

1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
