Review: Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair & Scalp Shampoo

I have mild psoriasis on my scalp and have been using my trust Neutrogena T Gel shampoo for over 2 years now but it does have a fragrance that gets some getting used to. When I saw that Puretopia also has a shampoo for sensitive and irritated scalp, I decided to try it hoping it may rival my trusty Neutrogena T Gel shampoo.

Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair & Scalp Shampoo ($10.99)

Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair & Scalp Shampoo ($10.99)

Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair and Scalp ($10.99) shampoo says

The combination of moisturising botanical cleansers, oat and wheat proteins in a fragrance free formula works to gently cleanse both the hair and scalp that is irritated and sensitive. The result will be soft manageable hair and a soothed scalp.

The first thing I noticed was how much the consistency of the shampoo looked like glue! I was hesitant at this point to wash my hair with this as I was picturing my hair becoming stuck with glue everywhere. Anyway, I pushed on and lathered it into my hair. Now, the shampoo spreads easily but does not lather up. This wasn’t an issue for me (but may be for you?) as I always shampoo my hair twice before conditioning. Without conditioning, my hair did feel clean but also very knotty. You definitely need to follow up with a conditioner or hair treatment. Afterwards, my hair felt soft and clean, and my scalp was not irritated or made any worse by the shampoo. True to its word, there is no discernible smell, just a very clinical, botanical scent which, I am assuming, is derived from the “botanical cleansers, oat and wheat proteins”.

Price-wise, it is a bit expensive compared to regular supermarket brands but when compared with premium haircare bands, the price is reasonable. As for whether it replaces my HG shampoo, not necessarily. Both are similar in price and I will be alternating between my Neutrogena T Gel and this Puretopia one as it’s very hard to find a scalp treatment shampoo that works!

You can purchase Puretopia products including this shampoo from Priceline and selected pharmacies nationwide. To find the nearest one to you, check out their stockist locator here.

Review: Designer Brands CC Creme

Designer Brands CC Creme ($14.99)

Designer Brands CC Creme ($14.99)

Prior to receiving this Designer Brands CC Creme in my mailbox, I had never tried a CC cream before. I only dabbled with BB creams briefly as I was so overwhelmed and actually came across one I liked on my first few tries.

This Designer Brands CC Creme promises a number of things – minimise the appearance of uneven skin tone, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and brighten dull, tired skin.

And after using it over the course of 3 months, I can definitely agree with the above.

In terms of coverage, it is not super heavy at all. In fact, it provides very sheer coverage. This may not be suited to your needs but for me, it was perfect. I have broken capillaries on my cheeks and some redness around my nose and the Designer Brands CC Creme provided just enough coverage so that the redness was covered without being too heavy on my face. It definitely felt light and would be great to wear in summer, as it contains SPF15. The consistency is not too water, or too thick. One pump was more than enough to cover my face and was easily buffed in.

Designer Brands CC Creme ($14.99)

Designer Brands CC Creme ($14.99)

I have used this for over three months now, and always reach for it when I just need to even out my skin tone without looking too made up. It makes for a great “natural” make up base.

The Designer Brands CC Creme comes in two shades – Light Medium and Medium Dark, and the shade I received, Medium Dark makes for great match. Not too light, or too dark, but just the right balance to brighten up my skin.

And a quick mention of the packaging. It’s very lightweight, handles clumsiness well and looks sleek!

The shade range is limited, so if you can find a match and are looking for natural coverage, have a look at this Designer Brands CC Creme. For your local stockist, call 1300 765 332 or check out their online store locator.

Review: Innoxa Full Colour Lip Creams in Citrus Cake and Lovable Lilac

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Citrus Cake and Lovable Lilac ($14.95)

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Citrus Cake and Lovable Lilac ($14.95)

These sleek, frosted tubes of pigmented lip colour is a new offering by Innoxa promising

A luxurious non-drying lip colour that combines the texture of a lipstick with the shine finish of a gloss! The weightless formula leaves lips looking rich in colour and feeling refreshed upon application. 

As you can see, the frosted tubes and printed brand name gives these Full Colour Lip Creams a sleek look. They come with a doe foot applicator for easy precise application. These are available in six different shades and I was sent Citrus Cake and Lovable Lilac. Citrus Cake is a pigmented orange red. Lovable Lilac is a soft purple-pink which leans neutral-warm on me.

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Lovable Lilac and Citrus Cake ($14.95)

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Lovable Lilac and Citrus Cake ($14.95)

In terms of colour payoff, Citrus Cake applied with more pigmentation compared with Lovable Lilac which was a bit more sheer but was able to build up the intensity with ease. Both are creamy and have a glossy finish. Both did leave a very light stain after the gloss faded away. They felt comfortable on my lips and the gloss finish was not too sticky.

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Lovable Lilac ($14.95)

Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream in Lovable Lilac ($14.95)

In terms of wear time, they lasted about 2 hours without eating or drinking happening. This is as expected for glosses for me.

Review: Violet Box April 2015

Violet Box April 2015

Violet Box April 2015

Lonvitalite C2 Collagen Protein Wrinkle Removing Mask $9.95
As you all know by now, I LOVE face masks and this promises to smooth out lines, reinforce skin growth & enhance skin moisture.

Tini Beauty Eye Shadow (Pearl Fizz) by Rob Scheppy $16
Firstly, this is not the first time I have received an eyeshadow (or powder product) from Violet Box that has shattered in transit. This annoys me as I feel like these fragile products should be packaged just a little bit better. If I was a paying subscriber I would be very annoyed as shattered products = wasted time trying to put them back together or wasted money because I’d probably just throw it out as I can’t be bothered putting it back.

Pearl Fizz is a warm toned light champagne shade. It looks like it would have been a nice brow bone or all over lid shade. But I’m honestly too lazy to put it back together so I’m just going to bin it.

Evelyn Iona Natural and Organic Concealer (Flawless) $24.99
I’m  a bit unsure about this; it contains a lot of “oil” ingredients – coconut, jojoba and vitamin e. It has a lot of “slip” to it so I really am interested in trying this to see how long it’ll last!

Urban Skincare Co. Daily Hand & Body Cleanser ~$1.89 ($26.95/500ml)
Described as an alternative to soap, this hand & body cleanser smells like oranges & is supposed to be gentle enough to remove everyday dirt & grime without remove the lipid barrier.

Lipsi Cosmetics Aphrodite Powder ~$7.24 ($38/21g)
A finishing powder that absorbs excess oil. Ever since I returned from my holiday in the USA, my skin has gone oil crazy! So again, I am interested in trying this and seeing how well it can control the oil situation on my face.

Transformulas Eye Lifting Gel $49
Transformulas FaceContour & Tightening Creme $59
Satchet samples? Really? For what these products promise, I don’t think satchet samples would be enough to see results. One of the satchets just fills like it’s full of air. I have used other Transformulas products before and they have yielded good results so fingers crossed?

This month’s box was slightly disappointing. I understand there were some issues regarding a product but it just felt like the box was packed in a huge rush. Broken products, missing product card. Just not on the ball there, Violet Box. I think this may be the first box where it’s mostly made up of samples and deluxe samples with only one full size product (the eyeshadow) but even with the full size product, I can’t even use it because it’s shattered!

In terms of value, April’s box was very disappointing for me. This is the first box where I have been left disappointed. The broken eyeshadow detracts from the value of the box as I cannot use it, The lack of sizes noted on the samples mean that even just a generous estimate, the value of the box is close to or just a bit more than the monthly subscription fee.

Subscription boxes are available from $22.95/month. For more information on Violet Box, check out their website here.

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2015

If you’re a last minute person like me, here are some last minute Mother’s Day gifts I’m sure your mum would love! Whenever I post these guides, I always keep my mum in mind. She is the most difficult person to buy for! If my sister & I ask her if there’s anything she has her eye on, she would always say no. She is the most selfless person I know & she is so independent – if she likes anything, she’ll just buy it herself.

With that in mind, I am sure these gifts will please even the most difficult of mums to buy for!

Glasshouse Candles
Each year, Glasshouse & McGrath’s Foundation release a limited edition Birds of a Feather scent for Mother’s Day. This year, it’s Pink Sorbet, described as a blend of grapefruit, watermelon & lemon. It also comes in a neon pink jar and would make a great storage container once you’ve used the candle. The price is slightly higher than the regular range ($42.95 v $39.95) but 5% of the the RRP (minus GST) will be donated to the McGrath’s Foundation. With the price tag, they are a slight splurge & definitely something my mum wouldn’t buy for herself.

Glasshouse Birds of a Feather Candle

If Pink Sorbet doesn’t float your boat, Glasshouse also has other amazing scents available in their range with my personal favourites being Tahaa, Rio De Janeiro & Montego Bay.

You can purchase Glasshouse candles online, or for local stockists, click here.

LUSH*
LUSH has released a number of great limited edition products & gift sets for Mother’s Day. Some of these include:

LUSH Limited Edition Mother's Day products

Yummy Mummy body conditioner – $32.50/500g
A strawberry scented cocoa butter, great for the upcoming winter. It’s heavy duty enough to combat dry skin & smells delicious!

Yummy Mummy Shower Gel – $9.95/100g; $16.95/250g; $29.95/500g
This purple shower gel contains silver lustre & smells like flowers. It contains seaweed extract to leave skin soft & lathers up nicely.

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb – $6.25
This gorgeous smelling bath bomb is a beautiful blend of soya milk powder, rosewood & Turkish oils which ensures that when mum gets out of the bath, she’ll have the softest skin.

Mother Superior Bubble Bar $9.95
Smells like cherry blossoms, this cute bubble bar bubbles up well & has a refreshing ocean-like scent. Great for mum to take a relaxing bubble bath!

Hand Creams
My mum is addicted to hand creams. She goes through them like crazy so I always like to ensure that she has a never ending supply of hand creams. Lanolips has 3 hand creams available:

Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

Antibacterial Hand Cream ($15.95/50ml) – this hand cream is great for everyday cleanliness as it works as both a hand sanitiser, instantly killing 99.9% of germs but with added hydration with the aloe vera & lanolin meaning no dry hands no matter how many times this hand cream is applied.

Lanolips Intense Hand Balm

Lanolips Intense Hand Balm

Intense Hand Balm ($15.95/50ml) – as its name suggests, this is more of a heavy duty hand cream if extreme dryness is a concern.

Lanolips Everyday Hand Balm

Lanolips Everyday Hand Balm

Everyday Hand Balm ($22.95/50ml)  - a great everyday hand cream aimed at maintaining everyday softness.

Lanolips products are available online, Priceline, David Jones, Terry White chemists, & Mecca.

Molton Brown Beautiful Hands Gift Set

Molton Brown Beautiful Hands Gift Set

For a beautiful hand cream gift set, you can’t go past the beautiful packaging of Molton Brown. This year’s limited edition gift set, Beautiful Hands ($45), contains 3 beautiful scented hand creams – orange & bergamot, gingerlily, & rhubarb & rose. You can purchase the trio online, and at Myer and David Jones.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea range*

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter

The Body Shop products make great gifts, but I thought I’d focus on the new Fuji Green Tea range. The range is infused with green tea leaves from the Mount Fuji region, for healthier, smoother & softer skin. With Winter coming up, the body butter ($23.95/200ml) would make a great gift. I love The Body Shop’s body butters as they don’t feel too heavy once applied but they do provide long-lasting moisture protection.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub

The body scrub ($29.95/250ml) would also make a great gift (maybe create your own gift pack?!) with Winter coming up. The body scrub contains little microbeads for gentle all over body exfoliation and smells very refreshing!

If creating your own gift packs doesn’t appeal to you, The Body Shop has got your back. There are 3 pre-made gift packs ranging from $13.95 – $84.95.

Review: Violet Box March 2015

March’s box contained some pretty cool products which I am looking forward to trying.

Violet Box March 2015

Violet Box March 2015

Biology Equilibrium Body Lotion No. 304 $8.70/30ml ($29/100ml)
This body moisturiser promises to bring your body’s moisture levels back into balance using natural ingredients. It has a very organic, natural scent and the lemongrass scent, which isn’t my favourite of scents, is not too strong though it does linger. Not too sure if I’ll be using this as I don’t like lemongrass.

Bioderma Sebium Foaming Gel $1.50/15ml ($24.95/250ml)
I currently use a full size version of this foaming gel and have posted my thoughts on it here.

Doucce Mineral Matte Lipstick $29.95

Doucce Mineral Matte Lipstick in 903 $29.95

Doucce Mineral Matte Lipstick in 903 $29.95

First, I absolutely love the packaging. It reminds me of Guerlain’s heavy duty and sleek packaging but without the weight! I received this in shade 903 – a dusty rose shade that I normally gravitate towards if I’m feeling a natural lip. Props for having SPF 10 infused as well – any sunscreen protection is better than no sunscreen protection!

Doucce Lip Definer $29.95

Doucce Lip Definer in 456 $29.95

Doucce Lip Definer in 456 $29.95

I’ve only recently started using lip liners and I am glad that this comes in a shade that matches the lipstick. It takes the hard work out of guessing! This is in shade 456 and the Doucce lip definers claim to give a velvet matte finish and be waterproof.

Doucce Lip Definer in 456 & Mineral Matte Lipstick in 903

Doucce Lip Definer in 456 & Mineral Matte Lipstick in 903

Lonvitalite C8 Collagen Crystal Eye Mask $5.33 (32/6 pk)
I love using eye masks like these because you get instant results! These eye masks will help to brighten your eyes and remove the appearance of dark circles and fine lines.

Month after month, Violet Box continues to introduce new brands to me and ensure the value of the products included far outweigh the subscription fee. I think this is very impressive in itself especially having been around for over a year now and still managing to achieve this monthly.

Subscription boxes are available from $22.95/month. For more information on Violet Box, check out their website here.

A Gentleman’s Review: Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Range

Sometimes, we receive some great press releases in our inboxes and have to turn them down as the products are aimed at a male audience. Luckily, I have now managed to recruit a male guinea pig!

Introducing A Gentleman’s Review – a new feature on Beauty Snippets featuring my fellow male blogger whom we shall call Mr. L.

***

I’ve been using a variety of Schwarzkopf products since I was in high school (Their Osis Thrill Fibre Gum is an excellent all round hair product) so when I was asked to review their revamped 3D range, I jumped at the chance.

“the Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN range was the first brand engineered specifically for men, tackling the three key dimensions of masculine hair care: strengthening hair, refreshing the scalp, and activating the roots. The revitalised [3D]MEN range is available across all Australian retail outlets from March 2015.”

The two products I received are the Strong Hold Gel and the Texture Clay.

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel and Texture Clay

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel and Texture Clay

 

[3D]Men Texture Clay

Schwarzkopf Professional Texture Clay

Schwarzkopf Professional Texture Clay

 

The Texture

Schwarzkopf Professional Texture Clay

Schwarzkopf Professional Texture Clay

 

The texture was a smooth, light paste, unlike other matt finish waxes I’ve used before. My first instinct was that this product would be excellent for people with light, soft hair. When I washed it out of my hands, it felt slick and slightly greasy but came off without any soap. This is always a plus! I can’t imagine what products are doing to your hair when you can’t even get if off your skin!

The Hold

Do as I say and not as I do! I normally apply my hair products to damp hair. This is because my hair naturally sticks up, it’s hard, dry, coarse and very thick. I went about my daily routine when I found that this product simply didn’t hold my hair like my other products normally do. Like most guys, I applied more. And more. Then realised it wasn’t working. Upon reading the instructions (oh wow! Instructions!) I discovered this product is for DRY HAIR (duh).

When applied to dry hair, this product shines (not literally as it’s a matt product), the hold was light but managed to keep everything in place. The look (as it states) is a dry matt finish however upon playing with the amount of dampness in my hair I was also able to achieve a semi slick look (just had to apply a little more product).

The hold isn’t rock solid and that’s great if that’s the type of hold you’re looking for.

Does it wash out?

Easy. As I anticipated when washing it off my hands, this product gave me no dramas and didn’t require a double wash.

Conclusion

Although not suited to my hair type, this product would be excellent for those of you who have lighter, thinner hair or hair that isn’t as coarse. Overall it’s great, the scent is subtle and barely noticeable and it washes out easily.

 

[3D]Men Strong Hold Gel

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel

 

It’s been a while since I’ve used a gel. Mainly because I’ve changed my style however I do know what I look for when applying a gel and had a few things in mind when trying this out.

The Texture

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel

Schwarzkopf Professional [3D]MEN Strong Hold Gel

 

This product is a semi thick consistency, but not like the cheaper tubs of gel you find in the supermarket. The product was clear (see above) and there was no presence of bubbles like you see in other gels. It isn’t overly sticky and washed off my hands with ease.

The Hold

Unlike some gels which are thick and goopy, this gel felt light without being sticky. Although I had trouble with the loose fly-aways on my hair part, the parts that were down, once set, stayed that way for the duration of the day. The hold was hard but not uncomfortable like some gels. I definitely had the confidence that my hairstyle would be consistent through the day.

Does it wash out?

I never really have issues with gels washing out, often they’re water based and this is not different. It washed out easily.

Conclusion

If you’re into a wetter look and don’t mind having your hair slightly harder and not pliable, this gel is for you. There was next to no scent once applied and I had no issues with the hold.

Review: Suigo Ultimate Control Shampoo & Conditioner

Image from http://paperdollsdiary.com/

Suigo Volume Control Shampoo & Conditioner

Because I am a bad beauty blogger, I didn’t get any pictures of the shampoo and conditioner before I went ahead and used and finished them. Sorry. So, here’s a nice picture from Paper Doll Diaries.

Quickly, Suigo

is a natural based product, with targeted ingredients collected by advanced methods.  It is aimed at targeting and solving various hair and scalp problems. Suigo products are available at professional hair and beauty salons only. Their exclusive salon formulation helps create our philosophy of Beautiful Hair, Beautiful Life.

The shampoo and conditioner has a thicker consistency than my usual products. They kind of look like condensed milk. The result is that my overprocessed hair feels naturally soft and smooth, with a slight level up of volume! I don’t know how else to describe it but there’s a lovely natural bounce in my hair as a result of using the shampoo and conditioner. After using the shampoo, there is no residue but there’s no super squeaky clean feeling either which means your hair hasn’t been stripped of its natural oils. The conditioner works well as it’s like an intensive treatment. This means that I don’t have to follow up with a hair treatment on my over processed hair.

The products are slightly more expensive than supermarket brands but considering the fact that the ingredients are 100% natural, I find that paying a bit more isn’t a big deal.

The prices are as follows for the shampoo and conditioner: $22.60 (260ml), $31.50 (680ml), $38 (1litre) and are available at selected salons.

Review: Rimmel Provocalips

Rimmel Provocalips

Rimmel Provocalips

Not so new to the Australian beauty market are these Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour, offering 8 shades which claim to be

Kiss proof , transfer proof, food proof, high impact endless color. No tight feeling or dry lips. Lips feel smooth and moisturized all day long.

Ok. So when I first received these, there were no instructions to be seen – apart from “Step 1″ and “Step 2″ on the product! So trial and error and reading other bloggers’ reviews, I concluded that you should let the colour (step 1) dry first before applying the top coat.

Details first. As you can see, on one end is the lip colour, and the opposite end contains the top coat. The consistency of the lip colour is quite thin and runny. The top coat is designed to lock in the lip colour and applies like a clear gloss. Both applicators are doe foot applicators so application is a breeze. Due to the colour drying very quick, you do need to work carefully and quickly.

Rimmel Provocalips

Rimmel Provocalips

The big question, I think, is how do they feel once applied? Surprisingly, very comfortable! The colour on its own can be a bit sticky which is why you need the clear top coat which adds some moisture.

As for their 16 hour kiss proof, transfer proof, food proof claims? Well. I couldn’t really test it for 16 hours but I did for 10 hours (which is long-wearing enough for me!).

Close up, application starts looking a bit dry and manky. At the 10 hour mark, it wore off from the middle of my lips. However, the colour is still there and from afar, it doesn’t look that bad! But of course, close up, it does not look that pretty.

And now onto the swatches -

110 Dare to Pink – a milky pink
200 I’ll Call You – medium pink mauve
310 Little Minxk – fuchsia pink
230 Kiss Fatal – plum

Arm swatch - 110 Dare To Pink, 200 I'll Call You, 310 Little Minx, 230 Kiss Fatal

Arm swatch – 110 Dare To Pink, 200 I’ll Call You, 310 Little Minx, 230 Kiss Fatal

500 Kiss Me You Fool – fire engine red
550 Play With Fire – ox blood red
700 Skinny Dipping – brown-based nude
730 Make Your Move – rosy brown nude

Arm Swatch - 500 Kiss Me You Fool, 550 Play With Fire, 700 Skinny Dipping, 730 Make Your Move

Arm Swatch – 500 Kiss Me You Fool, 550 Play With Fire, 700 Skinny Dipping, 730 Make Your Move

My favourite shades are I’ll Call You, Little Minx and Make Your Move.

In terms of removal, you do need an oil-based makeup remover to easily wipe the colour off. I just used baby oil and they came off easily.

You can check these out at your local Priceline, Coles, Big W, Chemist Warehouse and Woolworths and they retail for $17.95AUD.

Review: Bespoque

Launched in June 2014, Bespoque Skincare offers you the chance to create a completely customised facial cream for yourself. I mean, who knows your skin better than you?

Bespoque - Skincare designed by you

Bespoque – Skincare designed by you

The process itself is very simple. You can complete the questionnaire online or in store at a Terry White chemist on an interactive display. The questionnaire is very intuitive and asks all the important questions needed in order for you to create a moisturiser that is right for you.

Examples of questions asked: Do you want a fragranced moisturiser? What are your skincare concerns? What colour label do you want?

At the end of the questionnaire, your results are shown to you based on your answers and you have the option of adding or removing the features. It also tells you the cost of your moisturiser which can range from $36.95 to $69.95. Once your order is placed, if you’re at a Terry White chemist, behind the scenes, it’ll take about 5 minutes for them to blend and create your moisturiser. If you did it online, no worries. You can come and pick up your customised moisturiser at your earliest convenience.

Bespoque - Skincare designed by you

Bespoque – Skincare designed by you

The process for me was very simple and easy. I created a moisturiser that was light and hydrating, with a rainforest scent, aimed at reducing the redness in my cheeks and exfoliating skin cells.

As for use, well, how can I fault it? I was able to create something that was aimed at my current skincare concerns and it does what it says. My redness isn’t as obvious, my skin is hydrated, it gets absorbed quickly and it isn’t heavy on my skin.

I definitely recommend this to everyone but especially those with constant changing skincare concerns or those who cannot find a moisturiser that agrees with their skin and/or skincare routine.
