Product review: My Organic's Goji Miracle Mask

Product review: My Organic’s Goji Miracle Mask

I was a bit dubious when I first tried this product because I had never heard of this brand. Although a winning product feature was that it wasn't tested on animals and was made from all organic ingredients.  This is yet another hair calming and soothing balm. It can be used in place of a…

Product review: Natio's makeup range

Product review: Natio’s makeup range

About Natio  Natio is an Australian brand of cosmetics that is available in department stores and chemists in Australia and New Zealand. Underpinning their brand is a philosophy about creating make up and skincare that's kind to the environment and uses only plant-derived, vegan ingredients.

Product review: Palmer's Shea Formula Curl Cream

Product review: Palmer’s Shea Formula Curl Cream

Yet another great cruelty-free product, this one is far superior to its non-cruelty free competitors. I have tried many hair oils and frizz calming serums in the past but none actually do what they claim and stop my head from looking like a poodle that just walked out of a hurricane.  If you have frizzy,…

Product Review: Natural Instinct Skincare Range

Product Review: Natural Instinct Skincare Range

I came upon the Natural Instinct range via the new Chemist Warehouse which opened up in St Lukes Auckland.

Cruelty Free Product Review: Dream Cream

Cruelty Free Product Review: Dream Cream

As you well know, I am obsessed with trying out organic skin care from New Zealand and Australia. In the past I have reviewed Warbotanicals, Dermalab and other brands.

Two products that I would not recommend from Lush

Two Products From Lush That Are Less Than Great

Although there are a couple of real winners from Lush, (which I have mentioned in my previous post ere are also a few products that leave much to be desired. In the spirit of honesty and keeping my product reviews balanced, here are a couple of products that I have not really been at all…

Seven Products from Lush That Will Convert You To The Cult (Of Lush)

Seven Products from Lush That Will Convert You To The Cult (Of Lush)

As you probably already know, I am obsessed with Lush. Although for good reason, it does exactly what it claims on the tin. Which is completely refreshing given the amount of bullshit that's touted by cosmetic companies, all trying to make a buck out of crappy products. For a change, with Lush, what they say…
