Haul: January-March 2014

So I have another haul post for you (hope you don't mind). These are things I've bought since the beginning of there year. And here we go. 


1. Beauty Care CO Makeup Remover Pads - $2.00 AUD

2. E.L.F Studio Blush in Candid Coral - $8.00 AUD


3. NYX The "it" List the naturals - $29 AUD
I had a $10 Coles Myer so I only paid $19 for this...BARGAIN 

4. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 700 Nude Delight - $7.00 AUD 
This is being discontinued so I decided to get a back up because it's one of my favourite nudes. And it makes me very sad they're discontinuing it. (image is down below)


I got a $50 Coles Myer gift card from my uncle for my birthday and decided to spoil myself and buy some M.A.C products. Plus I also got a voucher in the mail for 10% off beauty products (with exclusions). 

5. M.A.C Fix + - $24.30 AUD ($27.00 RRP)

6. M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer in NC30 - $28.80 AUD ($32 RRP)

7. Sample of M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer in NC35
I'm currently in between colours because I tanned over the summer so the lovely lady at the M.A.C counter not only matched me but was nice enough to give me a sample so I can mix the 2 till my tan fades. 

Cosmetics Fragrance Direct

8. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya - $7.00 AUD
That's right $7. If you have a CFD in your area I highly recommend checking it out. Their stock isn't as extensive as Priceline or Kmart etc but it's worth checking out anyway.  


They had their 40% off cosmetics recently and boy did I take advantage of it.

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 
30ml $24

"This super concentrated skin hydrating serum has a light formulation, which is easy to apply and works deep into the skin. The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

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…
