For those of you who don’t know I have really oily skin, I’m talking UAE oil rig status and with that comes god awful sore pimples and other goodies.. TMI? okay well you get the picture.

So unfortunately I have committed skin care cardinal sin and use Proactiv as my current skin care routine, I know this stuff is pretty harsh on the skin but when you’re struggling with break outs and find something that works, you know I’m going to hold onto that with both hands. I have however been trying to find some more gentle skin care products to try and phase out my current routine and boy am I glad I found this little gem.

I came across this toner water when I was lining up at Lush with my arms full of as much Snow fairy body wash a girl could carry (a story for another time) and as I was waiting in the line going out the door, the lovely sales assistant introduced me to my skins new best friend.

This toner water is a blend of a Tea Tree Water (Melaleuca alternifolia), Grapefruit Water (Citrus paradisi)Juniperberry Water (Juniperus communis), *Limonene (*Limonene), Perfume (Perfume), Methylparaben. This toner is amazing, it’s calming on the skin and feels so refreshing and makes my skin look plumper. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to do that but my skin definitely looks more supple. Don’t let seeing the word perfume there scare you away either, I don’t notice a smell at all.

I have slipped this into my routine to replace my original toner and my skin didn’t react horribly, which in itself is amazing since I can’t change my moisturiser without my skin having a fit.

this toner retails for $9.95AUD for a 100g bottle or $19.95AUD for a 250g bottle (pictured above) It doesn’t feel like I’ve even made a dent in my bottle and I’ve had it for a few weeks now.

I apply my toner by holding the bottle a few centimetres away from my face and spraying it directly on my skin, you could also spray it onto a cotton round and pat it on your skin.

I definitely think it is worth the money and can’t see myself living without it now.

Have you used this product, did you love it as much as me? let me know in the comments

Raising Eyebrows

Hey everyone, today we are going to talk about eyebrows and how I fill them in!

There  are A LOT of different brow products on the market from gels, to pencils and the new DipBrow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills, but I use something completely different. after hearing about the Brow Pomade I wanted to try it but being in Australia, American products cost an arm and a leg, so I was looking around for something similar and had heard about using the Maybelline Colour tattoo in Tough as Taupe to fill in your eyebrows so I thought I’d give it a go.

Here’s what I use to fill in my eyebrows.

Brow Comb

Start out by combing through your eyebrows with the eyebrow comb brushing any stray hairs into place, then with a small amount of product using short strokes along the top of your eyebrow, then with what’s left on the brush continue with small strokes through the body of the brow, and then picking up more product and taking it through the tail of the brow, extending it if needed and filling it in.

as you can see my left eyebrow is a lot fuller and more defined then the right.

the maybelline colour tattoo is a creamy product and I find that it is perfect for defining and filling in eyebrows. I have used it heaps now and it looks like it has hardly been touched.I purchased mine from Kmart for $11.95, but you can get it from Chemist warehouse for $9.95 (I was not happy when I saw that!!)

what do you use to fill in your eyebrows? are there any other tips and tricks you think I should try? let me know in the comments.
