Brush Cleaning Made Easy | The Brush Bar

'I love cleaning my make up brushes!' said no one ever... I don't know about you, but my least favourite beauty task is cleaning make up brushes. I put it off until my brushes are so gross that it really isn't right to be putting them on my face. Yes, I am a failure as a beauty blogger. I recently received a couple of products to make cleaning my brushes easy.

The Power of Black Rose | Sisley Paris

We all love to have a bit of luxury in our life, and luxurious skin care is the perfect daily treat. But is luxury skincare worth the cost? Do the benefits really meet the price point? Or is it just a waste of your money?

Sisley Paris has just released a new addition to their Black Rose Collection, the luxurious Infusion Cream. I have been testing out the moisturiser for the past month and I have been impressed with the results on my skin. Is it worth the price point though?

A Little Helping Hand

Winter has officially kicked in here in Canberra with few -8 degree mornings and freezing cold days. It has being driving my skin crazy, leaving it dry and cracked. I get dry hands at the best of times, but winter makes them even worse. I have to make sure I have a stash of hand cream with me wherever I go - bedroom, desk, hand bag, car, everywhere! I wanted to share a few of my favourites with you today, in case you are on the hunt for a good hand cream to keep your hands hydrated and happy all through winter.
