Product Reviews

Hey guys! I thought seeing as my last post was all about my current skincare loves, I would now let you in on all my current makeup loves! It still amazes me every single day how much makeup is growing and all the new and exciting things that all brands are coming up with! Just when we think we have seen it all, a brand brings out something new that blows all us makeup lovers brains and keeps us guessing with what will actually be created next!

Take me back a year ago I was all about doing full glam every single day, but when I’m not working, I like to keep it more on the natural side, so I’ll be able to cater for the full glam gals and guys as well as the more natural glam gals/guys with this post! So before i keep rambling on, lets get started!

This little bottle of absolute heaven has been my number one go to for a natural, bronzed glow. The product is infused with Argan oil which is super hydrating for your skin so while it makes your makeup look fresh and flawless, its also helping give your skin that extra boost of hydration!

Pros: A bottle of this illuminizer lasts me MONTHS! The smallest amount (pea size) will cover your entire face and keep you glowing for days. I even sometimes multi use it by adding it over my foundation for a natural highlight without using powder highlighters. Its super light weight and can be worn by itself for a natural glow too! I love that it has the argan oil through it to keep your skin happy, hydrated and glowy!

Cons: I dont really have cons for this product, it is worth the price, however if you use to much your whole hands are glowy, so i suggest using a brush, thats more of a tip than a con though!

Price: $37.00  from

We all know how much smashbox slay the game when it comes to their primers, one of their new ones is the two in one primerizer – a primer and moisturiser in one! The formula is super light weight, super hydrating and just feels like the perfect base before you slay your face with makeup.

Pros: The product delivers 24 hour hydration which is perfect for my fellow Australians with the warm weather already starting to hit us! (thank god!) As I said, the formula is super light so when applying to the skin its not thick or heavy. Whats incredible about this primer is that there is zero dry time, so if you/re in a rush as soon as you place it on the skin you can get straight into your foundation base, unlike so many other primers!

Cons: Once again, theres not much negativity I can say about this product, only thing as a skin specialist, I still use a moisturiser underneath this primer as I’m pretty strict with my skincare routine!

Ive truly gone through a whole bottle of this so quickly! Not because its small or wastes quickly, but because i’m absolutely OBSESSED with it!! This new little spray by too faced is a multi use product, You can use it as a spray primer, a setting spray for your makeup and a hydration booster spray for the warm weather us Australians have been experiencing lately, Its honestly one you need in your makeup bag!

Pros: Its three in one, so its perfect for travel, its perfect if you dont want to use multiple products for your makeup and its PERFECT for the warmer weather we are getting! It smells like a tropical holiday and is honestly my go-to for everything. Its not sticky like other setting sprays and works so well when going for that natural glow!

Cons: Honestly cannot fault this product, the bottle is large so you get so much out of it. Its a must have!

If you are a mecca beauty junkie you would know all about the Mecca lit from within highlighter.. well.. now we have the mecca cosmetica lit from within illuminating drops and let me just say.. I’m OBSESSED! These little drops of heaven are multi use and will keep you glowing for days! the drops are super light weight and work in multiple different ways to keep you dewy, glowing and hydrated!

Pros: Ive been into liquid illuminators for a while now and after trying this one, what i love about it is how light weight it is, but how much of a natural glow it gives the skin. Its soft, silky and blends so easily! You can use this product mixed with your foundation, mixed with your moisturiser or serum for a natural glow and an extra boost of hydration or even on top of your foundation for a liquid heaven highlight!

Cons: The only thing I would change about this product is the size, I literally want all of the lit from within illuminator and NEED it all, but thats just me being greedy 😉

Have you ever gotten super angry after doing your makeup perfectly, then you go and set with powder and you look dry, powdery and it ruins your whole look? Well not with this bad boy in your life! These powders will set your makeup but keep your skin looking glowy, even and beautiful. The dim light colour is my favourite, but there are multiple to chose from that mimic different lighting effects.

Pros: The powder is super velvety which means it sets to the skin beautifully and makes your skin still look glowy and natural. The packaging and product is beautiful, which hourglass are so amazing when it comes to any product they produce and how they display them! The compact lasts forever and only the smallest amount is needed to set your foundation!

Cons: I personally cannot fault this product, but if you are someone who prefers a matte finish, Id suggest not going for something like these powders, however I would always suggest going into a local mecca and trying it on the skin, I’m sure you will fall in love with it!

Price: $67.00 available at

This heaven sent highlighter has always been one of my go-to favourites! This mineral based highlighter is super soft, so easy to blend and gives the perfect pop of highlight to the face. The colour works on me when I am pale and when I have a fake tan, which I love! I’ve even used this all over the skin when I run out of my hourglass ambient [powder and it set my foundation perfectly!

Pros: Theres 77 mineral complexes in this powder that glide on the skin so smoothly. I love the beautiful natural highlight this powder gives! Its soft, velvety and the perfect highlight for so many skin tones!

Cons: I find that i go through these pretty quickly, but thats only probably because I use it all the time!

So if you guys were not aware, Mecca have launched their new brand called mecca max for all your beauty needs at beautiful affordable prices, and let me just say – this foundation is my go to love at the moment! Its a medium to full coverage foundation, velvety and blends perfectly! Theres 8 beautiful shades to chose from and number 4 looks perfect with a fake tan! Ive gone through bottles of this foundation already thats how much i LOVE it!!

Pros: This product is SO affordable, yet SO good!! I honestly was blown away when i tried it. It blends so perfectly, its so easy to build up to full coverage and stays on all day! If you dont want to spend heaps of money on a foundation this one is perfect! You get the great quality for such a great price.

Cons: I cant fault this one either, only thing i wish is there were more shades so I can fill my whole kit up with them!

Anyone who knows my personally knows how obsessed I am with my liquid liners, and Ive found my NUMBER ONE in this perversion pen by URBAN DECAY.  The pen not only makes it easier to get that wing razor sharp and perfect, but you can achieve such a fine line with them which makes it a perfect pen for beginners as well!

Pros: i suffer from bad watery eyes (i cry when i laugh its actually super weird) so the fact that this pen is waterproof, and actually lives up to that makes me so happy! Trust me when I say i have tried so many liquid liners, and this one is by far my number one – so all my fellow liquid liner lovers – I suggest you give this a go, I’m almost certain you will love it too!

Cons: The only thing i can say, like many liners- I feel like it runs out pretty quickly, but thats probably because I use it every day – however you push the pen and it will drain out all the liquid, which means you get the most out of the product. Another thing I wish it had was more colour choice, currently only black available so it would be great to see some different colours!

I dont think I go anywhere without this bad boy in my bag! This has got to be my all time favourite clear brown gel, it literally keeps my brows in shape for a buy day – whether thats with work, gym, the warm weather- I touch my brows all the time and this gel just ensures that they stay in place like i had only just done them!

Pros: The wand is super easy to use with 4 different lengths to decide how you want the brows to look (brushed up, more defined etc) the gel keeps your brows in place ALL day long and the product lasts forever! I use it every day and I’ve had mine for 3 months and there is still SO much product left.

Cons: Theres only one thing I can fault, is the smell of the gel – it might be because I’m sensitive to scents, but it actually isn’t the nicest smell in the world!

If you have not heard of this product, then I’m sure you have been living under a rock – this is one of the most popular concealers on the market, and I 100% know why! Ive been using this concealer for years and i can honestly say I am obsessed!

Pros: There are so many pros for this product, its creamy, full coverage, really easy to blend and works so well as a skin tone concealer of if you’re like me, going 1-2 shades lighter to highlight certain points under the face. This concealer has hydrating properties so it will not dry out when you are using it either!

Cons: Theres only two things I can fault on this product, it is small, so it doesn’t last long – and SOMETIMES it sits in my creases – but that also depends on my skin!

So before telling you why I love this product, you may see the photo above looks way too dark for my skin tone to be a highlighter – thats because bare minerals have created highlighters for different skin tones – and i chose the deep-dark to use as a bronzer. As soon as I saw the orange tone marble mixed with a beautiful dark tan colour, I knew it would look perfect to define the cheek bones! the product has a beautiful amount of shimmer, so if you are like me and love the glow in both your highlighters and your bronzers, that is easy to blend, this is a MUST try product for you!

Pros: This is a mineral based product, so not only do you know its good to be placed on your skin, but the buttery texture blends so perfectly and makes it easy to have a beautiful textured tone and not a harsh line. This line by bare minerals mimic the sunlight, so when your skin is in the sun, you look natural, glowy and chiseled to perfection 😉

Cons: Another one i cant fault, its SUPER pigmented, so make sure when you use it, to tap your excess off and slowly build your colour.

So guys, I hope you liked this one! It was a list of just a few of my go-to favourites, but Im currently writing a larger list containing eyeshadow palettes and my favourite lashes too, that will be coming next week so make sure you keep an eye out for that one! Thank you so much for reading and if you would like me to review or try any products for you guys, please dont hesitate to message me and let me know! ❤


Until next time,






Happy Tuesday all! I hope you guys have started your week off happy and full of positivity! I thought I would start off this week focusing on a post educating you guys on something I love, something I am passionate about and something I actually get to incorporate in my amazing job, Skin care. Ive been a skincare specialist now for over 2 years and I cannot put into words just how passionate I am about looking after my skin, and helping others look after theres. Today, I thought i would share with you some of my favourite skin care products and why Ive chosen them by giving you an insight into the ingredients and what they do for your skin.

My morning and night routine consists of 14-15 steps, so I thought instead of sitting here and making this posts impossibly long for you all to read, I would pick out some of my current favourites within all my routine and let you in on why they are SO good for your skin!

Guys, I suggest if you haven’t got yourself a skin care routine, to slowly start to educate yourself on the importance of having a routine and using the right products to benefit your skin. Everyone is different and each individual requires their own range of products/range of products to enhance their skin. If you feel lost or need some help with this, please do not hesitate to ask, I’d be more then happy to help you!

So, lets get started, I’m excited to introduce to you guys some of my all time favourites, maybe they will become yours too!

Have you guys heard of the peel off mask craze thats been going around? multiple videos of poor gals and guys in tears trying to pull off masks that are stuck to their face like glue, and ruining their skin? Well this mask does NOT do that and is so easy to remove off the skin.

Until next time,


Happy Tuesday all! I hope the start of your week has been productive and positive! Over the weekend I noticed that this month, there had been SO many things that I’ve been obsessed with and things that I think are really cool and addictive and thought I would share some of my current favourites with you all! The below showcase some of my favourite make-ups, clothes, brands, foods, places and things to do as well as so much more! Ive also added some things that are getting to me, things im stressed about and all around things Im doing/Obsessing over! I hope some of my favourites give you guys some ideas on things to do/thinks you also might think are really cool/dope! Okay, lets do this!


Anyone who knows me knows loved JB since he began bringing music out in 09′. I’ve been to all his Melbourne shows, spent thousands of dollars on concerts, met him 3 times. He is a large part of my life and seeing that everyone is starting to jump on the Bieber wagon is so dope! I am so super proud of him and his new album ‘purpose’ is for sure album of the year for 2015! I’ve chosen Sorry as my favourite song because not only is it so easy to jam too, but it has incredible lyrics and such a good beat! perfect for summer, I love it!


Okay- I’m obsessed with Grill’d. I only really allow myself to have one cheat meal/day a week and I swear i ALWAYS end up at grill’d I’m lucky that my boyfriend loves it too! The burgers are the healthiest ive ever had (I mean high in calories but they hit my macros well – carbs,fats,proteins) However, I ALWAYS order the same thing!!



Okay so this brand is so dope! I’m literally obsessed! Recently I have had to force myself off their website! I became familiar with the brand a month or so ago, then I saw that Kylie Jenner (who i think is so incredibly beautiful and her style is to die for) was spotted in some really amazing tights, and I noticed they were Dead Studios! They are super affordable and they have a range of pants, tops, jumpers, socks- all really cool ‘active wear’ which you can dress up or down, I’m hooked!

You can check them out at:



Okay so I recently did a post on my beauty instagram about my favourite brands, I named three of them, but If I really dug deep, Id say my most loved and definitely my favourite brand currently is ‘Morgan Taylor’ the bottles are super cute, the colour range is to die for and not only is the varnish SO easy to apply but it sits well, dries well and looks so nice on! Check out some of my favourite shades/colours!



Oh my goodness. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I complained to my boyfriend over the weekend about how much I wanted one of these things! I only enjoy bad food like, one day a week if that so because I didnt get it on the weekend, my craving is still so STRONG for one of these bad boys! The closest Starbucks from my house is the city, they removed it from my local shopping centre (no idea why it was amazing) I order the white choc mocha frappuccino with half strength coffee, as I’m not a large coffee drinker. Honestly, this frappuccino is to die for, you all have to try it! Its my treat this weekend for sure.


Seriously.. This is such an addiction.. I’m obsessed. I pay like $5.00 a month and its so worth it as I’m constantly scrolling through it and watching videos, tutorials and other crazy cool things.  For those of you who don’t know, the ‘Kylie’ app is an application that was created by Kylie Jenner and is a private app which you can only access if you pay for it. Its also available to sign in via the computer. The app literally showcases Kylies life. Her make-up tutorials, her favourite products, favourite clothes, private videos, question and answers, house tours! Its legit such an incredible app and ive learnt so many cool tricks from it!


I actually adore all aspects of the app- I didnt want to post videos obviously as its copy right but My favourite is Kylies tutroials and house tours! So fun to watch! You can buy it from the app store or visit


Okay dont judge me, Ive had a set of these in my make up containers for SO long but never used them because I didn’t like the design. Dont ask, I know its such a stupid reason, but on Friday night I left my favourite MAC brushes at my Dads and needed something for the weekend so I found them at my Mums in my room and I am SO glad I did! These are so good! They are super soft, super easy to apply makeup with and so good with product. I adore them! I have not stopped using them at all this week! They are SO cheap too! Like 6-7 dollars a brush!



Okay so it isn’t a surprise that my fav TV show is Supernatural! It has been for years, but recently ive been addicted to the new Season (11) of Geordie Shore as well as the new Season (11) of Keeping up with the Kardashians! I’m hooked! So good! Such funny shows and so much drama!


EXAMS: I have 2 weeks left of school so exams are becoming super crazy! I’m always stressing about school and my grades!

PLANNING MY 21st: I turn 21 in less then 2 weeks and I have so many things I need to plan for my DIY family party its crazy! ah!

MY WEIGHT: I suffer from body dysmorphia so im constantly stressing about how i look, what I eat and feeling fat!


I adore this foundation. Im always SO picky with my foundations because I want to hide all imperfections- Im deffinetley not a ‘light’ ‘natural’ type makeup girl, thats for sure haha! I dont love spending $70.00 on a foundation..but its worth it and its long lasting! Some of my favourite things about this base is:



Okay so before anyone thinks I want these because materialistic things matter most to me, I promise that’s not the case! I’m due for a new car and the Voloster is everything! I’m obsessed with it! I also blog off my ipad and my main imac and I really really want, well need a Macbook to be able to blog, work and do school work anywhere, any time! These are just two wants of mine, and they have been for so so long!



So November/December are definitely my FAVOURITE months of the year! My birthday, summer, Christmas! so many things to look forward too!

THIS WEEKENDS FIGHT EVENT: My boyfriend, Ryan works for a sporting company called ‘Sting Sports’ they are incredible guys, check them out! ( Anyway, so my partner has gotten hold of some tickets to a Muay Thai event this weekend! He took me, his Dad and his best mate to a boxing event a few months back and we had the BEST time, so the fact that there is a new event and we get to watch it and watch the fighters fight in sting merch is the best! Im so proud of my boy and excited to watch some knock outs!

MY 21ST BIRTHDAY: Eep! I cannot believe in less than 2 weeks Ill be 21! My parents always say to enjoy the moment while I can because after you turn 21, time flies! I feel like that was the truth when I turned 18! Im excited and sad at the same time, just because… well.. once you are 21.. that’s the best birthday! what other ones are there to enjoy? haha! 7th of December is the date… just in case you all were wondering ;)!

MY 21ST PARTY: The week after I turned 21 im having a party at home, nothing major and I didn’t even invite most of my friends! Its literally just family, my boyfriend, his family and like, 5 close friends! Nothing major, just small  but i am SO excited to see everyone and celebrate the milestone! Ive planned the party along side my Mum and we have done a lot of it DIY so im SO keen to show off our hard work!! Ill definitely be blogging about these events!

CHRISTMAS: Okay anyone who knows me knows im OBSESSED with Christmas! Its my FAVOURITE holiday event! Ive had my christmas tree up since October! I love celebrating with family, I love the atmosphere, the tree, the food, the faces on my close friends and family when I give them a gift, its just beautiful! My boyfriends Mum is coming down this year, she lives in Sydney so im super excited to spend a Christmas with her and her husband too!

So guys, these are just a few of the things on my mind/what im loving currently! Let me know if you want any further info/details on the brands/products/things Ive stated!

I hope you all have an incredible week!

All My love and well wishes

hey beauty lovers! My July Bella Box recently arrived and I tested the products just so I could review
them for you straight away! Haha! I was actually so much more excited about this box then I was with he last because this box came with the proper cute little blue and white poker dot bb gift box and my last edition didn’t haha! I know I know, such a small thing to get excited about but it did! This box was very different to my last, this box was basically filled with products that were mostly dedicated to skin care and skin products, there was only one product in the box that was makeup related. I had a lot of fun testing all these products and hope that my review on all of them help you guys decide whether or not the individual products shown are right for you, and hopefully save you guys some money in the long run! Okay, Let’s get started.

4 piece gift set RRP: $39.00
available at:

okay so the colour I was provided with in my Bella box was a shade called ‘purple haze 04’ . This colour is super pretty and goes on more like a darkish glittered brown mixed with purple rather then a straight up purple pigment. The colour goes on so easily and blends well with other eyeshadows If blended correctly. What I found with this eyeshadow was that using brushes over it becomes a challenge. Because this shadow is more cream based, it is best applied from the stick to the eye rather then using brushes. I tried applying this product both ways and it works a lot better from stick to eye rather then using a burst. The product sticks to the brush and the finished look does not look as professional or clean. It’s a newly launched eyeshadow stick, however there are many other brands out there that supply these types of eyeshadows also. The compact design of the stick makes it very easy to store In a makeup bag or even in your hand bag to use on the go, as the stick Simone colour you don’t have to try and carry a whole eyeshadow palette out just to touch up your eye shadow.

– Easy to apply
– Eyeshadow is VERY long lasting and sticks to the eyelid very well, I noticed after wearing the shadow for 12 hours it was still on my lids with a high amount of shimmer and colour still noticeable
– Compact and easy to travel with.
– Good amount of shimmer within the product
– Range of colours are great.

– Much cheaper highly appreciated brands out here who stock the same type of eyeshadow
– Although this contradicts with the ‘long lasting’ pro, it’s an extremely hard shadow to get off. I tried using my hands and it was impossible, makeup wipes were used and I still needed to scrub a little, can be painful for the eye
– Price for the 4 pack- you can get this cheaper for individual colours and pick the colours you want and make your own 4 pack.
-Stick is easy to break, you need to be very careful when using it.

If you are a makeup lover, I would try this product just to have your own opinion on it, especially if you work long days like myself I can guarantee that the colour will stick to your eyelids and last throughout the day, however if you do more research within the eyeshadows on the market you will be able to find similar products from different brands for a cheaper price and of better quality. I suggest if you are a drug store product lover even look into portal, maybeline and Rimmel, they offer a great range with many more colour options to choose from. If you are someone who is really into looking after your skin also like myself I don’t suggest always using this product as it can be hard to remove and no one likes to scrub at their eyes or bring out erythema by just trying to remove makeup. Product also contains alcohol which is stripping on the skin which isn’t a positive either. Definitely a product I could live without however handy for hose on he go, long day working makeup lovers who need a product that will stay in place all day.

89ml RRP: $60.00
Available at:

This is a sample product of a lightweight moisturiser that is suitable for all skin types. It’s purpose is to hydrate the skin and also help reduce the appearance of post acne dark marks, excess oil, shine and redness. I have never been a real big fan of proactive, and the ingredients they use to strip the skin and reduce the acne. The ingredients aren’t ones i agree with but then again, I personally have never suffered with acne in my life and haven’t used the proactiv line personally. My cousin however did and she swears by proactiv and how it helped clear up her skin. This product is something I did a test on as you will be able to see from the below photos/results. The smell of this product was lovely, and what I was very surprised about is it comes with a little spoon to scoop up the product and apply it to your face. Another thing that surprised me about this product was the amount. It states you need a fair mount for your face however I beg to differ, to cover my entire face all I needed was one small scoop! Pit covered my entire face and I still had product left over. The product was cold and smooth easy to apply and smells nice as well. Nothing worse then applying a product that doesn’t smell nice to your face and you have to smell it every time you breath! I’m not a proactiv fan as stated but I did like the feel of this product. I left it on my face for 8 hours and checked to see if my redness had gone down and it had! My face was also a lot softer then before placing the product on my skin.

-Only a small amount is needed for your entire face
-Product does exactly what it states it does
-Soft on skin
-Easy to apply
-Comes with spoon to apply the product.
-Smells lovely
-Reduced my redness/erythema.

-Some of the ingredients are ones I try and avoid in skin products.
– Proactiv advertise to use this product with z4 other products showing they just want you to buy all their products. I know this is the aim and what they need to do for their business but when they are pushing you to buy other products to get the full effect, that annoys me
– Expensive for a moisturising cream.

If you do suffer from acne and redness of your face, I suggest trying this product. I don’t condone the ingredients in their acne products but I know a lot of people who do and who swear by proactiv and what their products do. The product did reduce my redness and make my skin feel soft and smooth which is what the product states to do. I am going to continue using the tester bottle but personally wouldn’t pay $60.00 for the retail product, I prefer using sothys, payout or skeyndor products with ingredients I agree with and are specifically made for my skin type.

125ml RRP $12.99
Available at: Priceline and My Chemist Warehouse.

I personally like to steer clear of drug store skin care products if I don’t agree with their ingredients however I still wanted to give this product a try. I’m a lot more strict when it comes to what I use on a daily basis when it comes to my skin as I always want to ensure I use the best products that will benefit my skin in every way possible. This deep clean scrub is described as a gentle daily scrub that is developed with beta hydroxy and gentle micro beads to clean deep down into the skins pores leaving a smoother healthier looking complexion. There a multiple ingredients in this scrub that I don’t like to use on my skin at all however I still tested it to be able to review the product correctly. When it comes to a exfoliant/scrub for my face I like to use natural exfoliates. There is an amazing walnut scrub facial exfoliant made by sothys that is so natural and beneficial on the skin, I’ll defineltey make sure I do a review on it for you guys- that’s defineltey my first choice in facial exfoliant so but back to this product- the first thing I did was place a small pea size amount on my hand to feel the texture and smell the product and I was surprised. The product smelt amazing, like summer flowers. It’s a pale pink colour and the texture of the product was thick and very grainy, which is obviously expected for a exfoliating scrub. What I liked about the granular a in this exfoliant was how small they were, they were not irritating yet they felt like they were massaging my skin, like small pieces of salt instead of an irritating ball that feels uncomfortable on the skin. Before placing the product on my face I dampened my face with warm water then spread the product evenly through my fingers and placed it onto my face evenly, avoiding my eye are. I used my hands to make circular motions around my face to ensure the granules were moving and exfoliating the skin. I left the product on my face for 3-5 minutes just to check if the product would make my face sting or not, I’ve noticed with many drug store exfoliants or toners they can make my face sting like crazy and I hate that it just shows how bad some of the ingredients are, however this product didn’t make my face sting at all. Washing it off was easy aswell just warm water splashed into my face a few times. I then used a towel and dabbed my face dry. After my face was dry I run the back of my hand down it and I was amazed at how soft my face actually was I couldn’t believe it. My face smelt Amazing and felt amazing. I am actually very surprised by this product.

-Price. Retail product size is under $13.00. As the product didn’t give my skin a bad reaction I find that, that is a good affordable price
– Smell. The product smells so summery and so pretty, the smell remains after you clean the product off your skin as well.
-Texture. the texture was great. As stated above the granules are not uncomfortable and it is very easy to apply to the skin
-Softer skin. After applying the product my skin was super smooth and dead skin was removed.

– I don’t particularly love all he ingredients in this product. I deffinetley try my hardest to use products with natural ingredients that are most beneficial for my skin.

If you are someone who doesn’t focus on all ingredients in a product and are just trying to mainly focus on a product that does the job for you I would deffinetley say give this a try. It’s affordable, smells amazing, easy to use and I personally had no negative reactions. I really do love the granules within this product and how soft and smooth my skin felt after using it. Not much product is needed either when using so you will not be going through bottles and bottles and wasting money.

400ml RRP:$6.79
Available at: Woolworths, Coles and IGA.

Okay so I loves this product as soon as I opened the bottle. I am an extreme strawberry lover. I love the fruit and I love products that smell like strawberries so as soon as I saw this product in my Bella box I had a shower straight away so I could try it. I a, a lot my lenient when it comes to drug store/cheaper exfoliant a when it comes to my body. I am a lot my strict in what products I use on my face but for my body I like to try different products and see what works best for me. This body wash/exfoliant not only smells incredible but does exactly what it says on the bottle. The description of this product is ‘ a delicious exfoliating body wash, available in tantalizing fruit sents of Acai berry, passion fruit and strawberry. Promises to renew and revitalise the skin. Throw into your travel bag for fresh and invigorated skin wherever your adventures take you’ what I loved is that not only did the product remove dirt from my body after a long day outside in the dirt and sweating it out at gym, but it also removed all the deed skin from my legs. Before using this product I checked my legs and because of being sick my skin looked horrible. You could see the dehydration and dead skin build up and I hate that. My legs are chalky white and so easy to see imperfections. When I used this product with both a Loofa and exfoliation mitt I was so happy with results. I jumped out of the shower, dried and checked my skin again and I was incredibly happy. They looked hydrated, healthy and super soft to touch and still smelt like strawberries! I then applied a moisturiser and went to sleep and when I woke up my legs looked 100% better then they did 12 hours prior! I was so incredible happy with the results from this product and it will be one I keep in my shower always.

– Super affordable
-Easy to apply
– Smells amazing
-Super soft and nourishing on the skin
– 2 in one- exfoliant and cleanser for the skin.
– Great consistency.
-Does exactly what the bottle says it will do.
-Works so well combined with a moisturiser, you will tell the difference instantly.

– being picky I would say a fair bit of product is needed to exfoliate the entire leg however it does soap up and can be moved across he leg surface with circular hand movements.

Overall as you can see there were many more pros then cons to this product. Like I said it would be a different story and I would be a lot more strict on this products ingredients if it was a product for my face but because i was exfoliating my body specifically my legs I was not as strict or worried about the products. I deffinetley suggest this product to you all. So easy and quick to use, comes in a range of fruity flavours to suit what you guys like best and really does hydrate, moisturiser and exfoliate the skin. It is so super affordable and so super handy to have in your shower!

25 pack RRP: $7.99
Available at Priceline and my Chemist Warehouse.

I have to give it to Bella box this time around! Everytime I receive a box and their are makeup wipes of facial wipes to try, they usually only provide you with one wipe to test and this makes it incredibly hard to review a product/properly try the product. I don’t know about you guys but it takes more than one small facial wipe tore move my makeup or excess dirt from my skin and to review a product correctly I require more than one small wipe to do so, what I loved about this Bella box was Nuetrogena has provided a pack of 7 wipes to try which is very generous!

When I opened these wipes I was actually incredibly surprised. They are a very large wipe and smell incredible. I don’t know about you guys but I absolutely hate using a makeup wipe or any product if it doesn’t smell nice. These wipes were super super soft to touch and super moist. I refuse to use makeup wipes if they don’t have a good amount. Moisture in them as I feel like I am using sandpaper on my skin if they are too dry. The description of the wipes state that they remove all traces of makeup, even water proof mascara, so I tested that as seen below. I placed a small amount of the above reviewed ‘modelco shadow stick’ on my wrist and let it sit there for a few hours. At the same time I also placed water proof mascara on my eyelashes and let that dry aswell. I then grabbed one of the wipes and used one small part of the wipe on my wrist. I had to move the wipe back and forth a few times to remove all of the product however it did not make my skin red as the wipe was super soft and had heaps of moisture so it wasn’t irritating on my skin at all. I then felt my skin after the moisture had dried. My wrist was super soft and smelt great!

Next was the waterproof mascara test. As you can see in the photos he results were fantastic! The mascara came straight off! I didn’t have to force it’s no I didn’t have to push super hard either! The mascara came off so easy! What I noticed with these wipes as well as they leave a oil on your face which is highly moisturising and highly hydrating! I really was impressed by these wipes.

– Super soft wipe and so easy to use
– Glides over the skin so easily and moisturises the skin while removing dirt and makeup.
-Removes heavy pigments and thethick makeup.
-Removes waterproof makeup easily and without effort/force.
– Large wipes
– Does exactly what they say they will do.

– Price. I don’t agree with how much it costs these days just for makeup wipes that get thrown put after one use. This is my only con for this product and it probably wouldn’t be a con of I hadn’t discovered targets $2 makeup wipes that remove all signs of makeup and exfoliate the skin.

If you don’t mind paying almost $8.00 for makeup wipes then I highly suggest this product. They are super soft, super hydrating and super effective when it comes to removing makeup, dirt and other build ups such as sweat after a workout and excess oils from the skin. Deffinetley a great product.

40ml RRP: $44.99
This is a bonus product added to the Bella box. It’s only a one time sample. The product is a an anti fatigue moisturising cream. I tried this product after cleansing my skin and I was very surprised by it. The cream was so so soft and super hydrating as soon as I placed it on my face. I felt super awake and surprisingly super relaxed! It’s hard to say if this product would continue to work as you only get a small amount to test. I’m not going to do pros and cons of this product as it’s very hard to review. It’s harder for me to give you guys advise on if you should use this product or not with the little bit I tried. From first impressions though. I deffinetley loved the feel and effect of this product and once I buy a retail bottle I’ll do a further review.

Spain guys, that concludes my product review on my July Bella Box subscription! I hope you guys got some vital information on the skin products used today and you are intrigued by some of the products and want to try them yourselves! Hopefully I can save you all some money when it comes to the products and you loved them just like I do! Stay tuned as still to come this week are my July favourites for my purchased products this month and my August wish list! Products that I would love to purchase this August!

Hi Beautiful People! Hope the start of your week has been incredible! Today I’m doing a review on my June Bella Box, Yes I know its July but the box for June has only just recently been delivered to my house due to a mishap with my first box which I will explain, so I’m finally doing the review for My June Box!

So, some of you may think I’m crazy and be wondering what the hell a ‘Bella Box’ is. I was the same when I first heard about it. A Bella Box is a small box of beauty products that is mailed to you each month to try for less than $15.00 a month. The boxes are sent out every month to subscribers for you to test, review and then you can even purchase the full size products from the website. I know that in different countries, there are different types of company’s who do these types of subscriptions, but In Australia, Bella Box supplies the products/service. So about a month ago I decided to subscribe to Bella Box, for obvious reasons, I love to try new products and review them, plus I work in the Beauty industry and its my profession so I definitely wanted to keep up with what is hot and what isn’t currently. I paid for my first June Box direct debit from my account and received it after about 1.5 weeks after ordering. I was so excited and I opened the box straight away, but as soon as I opened the box I was very disappointed, their shower gel product had cracked through all of the products, and they were all ruined! I had nothing out of all the products that I could salvage, they all had the shower gel soaked through them and I had to throw the whole thing out. The good news was, I emailed Bella Box and they sent me a new box out free of charge because I sent them photo proof of my damaged products. They were very prompt and quick with their service, I’ll give them that! So, I received my new box last Friday and immediately opened it up because I wanted to check to make sure everything was intact and not broken ha-ha! Thank god, it wasn’t.

I was very pleased with the products in the box, they may be small but they do give you the right amount of product to be able to test things and see if you do like them enough to buy a full size. The sign up process was very easy as well. They keep you up to date via email as to where your box is when its being delivered so you know exactly when you are going to receive it. Their website is the steps will take you through exactly how to sign up and how to custom your box and order. Okay, let’s move away from the boring stuff and move onto what I received in my June Bella Box and what I thought of these products!



Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm tube:

RRP: $6.95 also available at

I adore this lip balm! So the one I got in my Bella Box has Vitamin E and peppermint in it, and if you know me you know I love peppermint! Peppermint chocolate, Peppermint Tea, Peppermint candles, Anything! I adore peppermint so I love putting this balm on my lips! Its incredible! The balm is also loaded with coconut and sunflower oils and essential fatty acids and its perfect to keep your lips hydrated and soft. Its obviously very compact too so it fits in your bag or makeup bag so easily and it bright yellow, so its not hard to find when you need it!


– Compact

– Easy to find

– 100% Natural

– Very beneficial, I noticed a difference in the health of my lips within 3 days of using this.

– Long lasting


  • I believe paying almost $7 for a small stick is a bit steep.
  • The Peppermint can be a bit overpowering, if you aren’t use to it, it will feel like your lips are burning a little.


I would recommend this product to others for sure, Yes I don’t agree with the price, but it is such a popular product and you do get what you pay for, Burt’s Bees is 100% natural and you can tell that it does exactly what is says it does. My lips felt amazing after just 3 days of using this product. Its long lasting too so you aren’t using tubes and tubes of it all the time. Burt’s Bees balm also comes in different flavors so done worry if you aren’t a peppermint lover like myself. If you are looking at hydrating your lips and bringing back the softness, then this product is definitely for you!


Universal Beauty Cosmetics Siren Tint Stick:

RRP: $19.99 Available at

I’m half and half with this tint stick. On one side, I think it’s a great idea and an awesome way to tint your lips, however on the other side; I feel like the colour option provided is way too bright and fake for the colour to ever look somehow natural or correct. The first time I tried this product, I tried it wearing no makeup, and I looked ridiculous, it obviously just didn’t suit, The second time I tried it was when I was just about to go out with my friends and my makeup was done, and it did look a lot better that time. I personally, don’t use this product too much, But for others who love a tint and pop of colour on their lips that’s lasting for a night out, then this is a product you should definitely try.


-Compact stick

-Easy to apply


-Does exactly what it says it’s going to do.


-Price. I personally wouldn’t spend $20.00 on this product.

– The colour of the lip tint isn’t personally my first choice, I toned down colour would be a lot better and definitely more natural

-The smell and taste of it when you either accidently lick your lips or smell the stick. Others may love this smell, but I personally didn’t.


I would suggest this product to a MUA or a Beauty blogger. Someone who is always buying the latest products or someone always experimenting with makeup and loves stand out lips. I would not suggest this product to someone who wears make-up just on the weekends, or has a set way they love their make-up to look or who is not confident in making their lips bolder and more noticeable. I personally won’t buy this product again, unless I can see a colour that I would like as a base.


Original Source Skin Quench Watermelon and Jojoba Oil.

RRP: $4.99 Available at Coles, Woolworths or Chemist Warehouse.

Okay so when I started this post I wrote about an issue with my first bellabox and needing to get a second one delivered due to a complication, My issue was that my box was not secured properly and this product had snapped and all of its contents had ruined all my products in the box. The team at Bella Box obviously replaced my box thank god, but I could not get the watermelon smell off my floor and kitchen bench for days, It was so funny, Well-Not funny then but funny now. Moving on. I do love this product though, I’ve used it in the shower the last few times, and it smells amazing. Its really soft on the skin as well and when using a sponge or luffa the soap really builds up making it so easy to clean your body. The product is also really moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling nourished right before I place my moisturizer on. The product has Jojoba oil in it and it definitely helps nourish your skin throughout winter which is always dehydrating for my skin.


-Super, Super affordable! $4.99 for a 250ml bottle.

-Lasting. A small amount will clean your entire body

-Smell. The smell of this product is amazing, and It does come in different flavours.

-Super Nourishing on the skin and so easy to use and apply.


The container is a cheap plastic and can break very easily (trust me I know) Ha-ha! Just be careful when using it in the shower, you don’t want to drop the Soap. Ha-ha, Get it? Okay ill stop now.


I would definitely recommend this product. The price is incredible, crazy cheap. The branch offers such a variety of different smells to suit your liking and is super lasting. I love this product and how easy it is to use. It does exactly what the bottle says it does and nourishes and hydrates the skin perfectly, and you smell amazing after using it too! Highly recommend to all!


Romy Nouveau Moisturising Body Balm.

RRP: 300ml $38.00. Available at

This Body Balm is used to nourish and hydrate your skin, To test it, I started to use it on my legs after applying the above shower wash. So once I dried off, I would apply this balm to my legs, and I must say It is such a great product! The Product combines eucalyptus and lemon grass as well as super moisturising ingredients to keep your skin hydrated, moisturised and soft. The bottle they give you makes it easy to apple aswell.


-Easy to apply

-Natural ingredients

– Not much product is needed to hydrate the skin

– Smells amazing


-Price.  All though I love the product, I personally don’t agree with it costing $38.00.

– Website. As stated on the card Bella box gives you with product information, there are similar products available online. It is very hard to find this exact product on their website.


Model CO Double Sided Facial Wipes:

RRP: $7.99 For 25 Wipes. Available at Priceline and

These wipes are to remove makeup, exfoliate and cleanse. I felt like for the price of 25 wipes, they should have been a lot better unfortunately. I don’t think the wipes are moist enough, which causes the makeup to not come off as easy. I found that with one wipe, not much makeup was coming off my face, I was actually pretty disappointed with them. One side it used to exfoliate and the other to cleanse, however you can use both sides of many different wipes to do so. I personally believe that the $2.00 facial wipes you can get from Target (Target brand) that come in exfoliation form, sensitive form, combination form, and are only $2. They work a wonder, so I would definitely suggest them over these.


-Smell Nice

-Soft on skin.



-Not as effective as they lead on.

-Don’t take all your makeup off as easy as they lead on.

-Do exactly what cheaper brands do.

So these are the products received in my June Bella Box, Im currently awaiting my July box! I hope this little review was helpful for you all and you took some great information away from this. I hope I save you guys some money on products that aren’t worth buying aswell guys! If you have any questions, feel free to tweet me @teganaudrey.

Kmart shopping Haul- What I got for under $100.00
Hey guys! Hope your week has been amazing! So I thought I would change up my posts this week and let you guys in on some of my shopping favourites. I’m currently a student so adjusting from earning a full time wage last year to now halving that and having to budget on everything it isn’t only stressful but extremely hard! Being a student, beauty therapist and makeup artist and having to buy equipment/products can often leave you out of pocket- spouse need to know where to shop and what to look out for! Now I’m not saying buying products that are poorly made or beauty products that have nasty ingredients- just products that are affordable and work well! This is my first hall post/affordable product hall and blog post about it but I’ll definitely start to do more depending on where I shop etc.
This post is about my shop to Kmart – for anyone who is into fashion or beauty and makeup stick around- this post is definitely for you! Okay let’s get started!
I only get paid monthly from my job (I know it sucks, it makes it so much harder) so I need to budget and even that can be extremely hard so choosing what products to buy and what I can spend. The other day I went to Kmart and did a complete hall and got so many products for under $100.00 it was insane! Okay so enough of my babbling on I’ll get into the products and items I bought and what I like about them and their cheap prices!

Kmart Woman’s Boots: $29.00

I adore these! They are super cute, super girly and so stylish! They go so well with black jeans or white jeans too! They’re high and surprisingly easy to walk in! The reason I purchased these is because I am a major boot buyer! They are my favourite shoe to wear! I am not a big high heel fan so when I go out I usually wear a nice pair of boots and these are perfect! They have a massive range so I suggest checking them all out, they’re are so many different styles. And they were only $29.00!!!



Scrap book album: $11.00

X2 Paper stacks for scrap booking: $1.50 each.

So as you guys may know I am majorly into arts and crafts and folio work- I have just started a new project where I’m creating folio looks and makeup looks to go with them from inspiration! That’s a Whole other project that I am so excited to shows you guys but for now let’s continue. The album has over 1000 pieces to use and the 2 books that were only $1.50 each with many pages of cute designs are perfect for my new folio creation! Earlier that day I checked out spotlight and art riots and they were so overpriced for anything to do with scrap booking! To get all of these for under $15.00 is incredible! (Pictured above)
Leopard print canvas shoes: $10.00

I cannot get enough of these cute little canvas shoes! I have different colours but have always had my eye on getting a leopard print canvas shoe but was not paying $100 for them like I saw them for at my local shops! Hell no. I’d rather spend that on makeup.. That isn’t much better… But it’s true haha!!! Honestly though for $10.00 could you really go wrong? They are super cute, super comfortable and go with so many of my clothes! They’re on sale from $20.00 so get your little butts to Kmart!! (Pictured above)
Baked eyeshadow quad: $8.00

I can not get enough of this palette! It is super super cute and super affordable! The colours are so pretty and pearlescent, in the photo I’ve added the colours do not look very visible but once they are on the eyes they do stand out! I highly recommend this quad to any makeup lovers out there- and for $8.00 you can’t go wrong.

Elf Concealer: $8.00

This cute little 4 coloured palette is my go too for cream contouring. I use the darker colours to emphasise my cheeks and the lighter colours to highlight under my eye area and cheek bones! It’s such a handy little kit and so easy to store! It’s nice and compact and the product is easy to apply! When I bought this kit I was worried about the quality and how it would stay on after powder and I was so happy that it stayed on and worked well! Elf has such a great product range and is super cheap and affordable!

Elf eye primer and liner sealer: $8.00

Okay so this was one product I bought and was amazed by it! It is super cool and fun to use! Okay so this stick is double sided- one side is an eye primer which you place on your lids before applying eye shadow and the other side is a brush that you can dip into any eye shadow you want.. And turn it into a liner! It absolutely amazes me- I love this and think it is so smart! Now you can have a glittered liner so easily! I always say how I wish some of my eyeshadow colours come in eyeliners and now that wish has come true- most Elf products are only $8.00 so you really can’t go wrong!

Eyelash curler: $3.00

Yes you read right- $3.00! This Curler is super cute! Smaller then my other ones yet works very effectively and well it comes with a spare liner too which is effective and helpful!

Mint cork board and whiteboard: $3.00

I’m obsessed with this! I am super into organising myself and knowing what I have planned for the week- this cute little half cork board half whiteboard is perfect for that! And $3.00 come on! What an absolute bargain! I’ve never seen one of these boards so cheap! It even comes with 2 magnets for your whiteboard!

X3 OXX eyeshadows (2 quads and 1 duo) : $2.00 each, $6.00 all together.

These are so cute! The two quad eyeshadows supply glittered colours that you can use all 4 for one look. I bought the brown neutral quad and the blue/purple quad. The colours a super stand out and look great on the eyes- I’m a massive fan of eyeshadow quads so these really hit the spot- and they were only $2.00 each so the choice to buy them was a simple one! I also bought x1 duo glittered kit whichever was also only $2.00 – this is a dark purple/black duo and I’m obsessed. The colours work so well for a smokey eye and again, for only $2.00 you can’t go wrong.

Not very important, but I also bought some glue and glitter- but they are average and prices were the same so it’s not something I’m going to bother talking about haha!
All together I paid $92.75 for everything and I was very impressed with all my products and purchases! Super affordable and products that last and are quality products!
I have some exciting news to share about adding videos to my blog by starting up a YouTube Chanel! I hate recording videos with me talking to a camera and I’m absolutely horrible at editing but I want to be able to show you guys products properly and explain myself better so I’ll be doing that very very soon!

until next time guys

Hey Guys! Happy Monday! Is It just me or did last week absolutely fly? I feel like I only just wrote last weeks product review! Okay, so this week I will be reviewing the hair fudge made by Manic Panic.

4 months ago I was getting very eager to go ombre with a stand out colour. I was trying hair chalks and wanting to actually get colours more permanent and real looking in my hair. I went to my local hair dressers and he would not bleach the bottom- He ended up putting a red colour in my hair which made my hair basically look the exact same as before I even walked into the salon! I was so upset! I paid $150 for nothing. I remember saying how I wanted to make the colour more vibrant, so I decided to go to a different hair dresser where they bleached the bottom of my hair then placed a ‘Manic Panic’ purple hair fudge onto my hair. I loved it! I loved the colour change however I until felt like the colour wasn’t AS vibrant as what I was hoping for. I remember, washing my hair for the first time after getting it done and how much hair fudge came out of my hair, the purple was starting to fade so quickly and turning into a weird green colour after 4 washes. I knew if I kept doing the purple the same thing was going to just keep happening, So I decided to try the Manic Panic ‘Atomic Turquoise’ fudge colour. I’ve been using this colour now for 2 months and I honestly am so glad I decided to try it!

PROS: The product comes in a easy to use container, so you literally don’t need to covert the product to a bowl or anything, you can use it just how it is, in the tub. The small container allows me to dye my hair twice without having to continue buy a new bottle every time I want to dye my hair. I found that because my hair wasn’t bleached completely and I had only bleached it once, the colour wasn’t as strong as a turquoise, however more like a teal, and I absolutely fell in love with the colour! At this stage I have no plans to change it any time soon. The teal definitely holds so much better then the purple colour did and I find myself not having to dye it as much as I had to when the base colour was purple. The colour is so easy to apply and it doesn’t even have to be in your hair for too long. When washing your hair, The dye that comes out does not stain your shower which is so important to me, as my bathroom has a white tile shower, so there would be nothing worse than the tiles being a teal colour after washing my hair. Why I keep going back to this product is because the colour range is extremely wide and they offer bleaches and pastel colours also, there is such an incredible range to choose from. I absolutely love having dark hair up the top falling into a teal ombre towards the bottom. It definitely beats just having one plain colour in my hair!


CONS: The price is pretty steep. It costs $25 for a small bottle of the colour which is a lot more then what you pay for a hair dye off the shelf, however I only dye my hair once a month with the ombre colour and I get x2 dyes out of each bottle, so it hardly adds up to being anything when I’m using all of the product efficiently.  Nothing worse than washing my hair and watching the colour run out when I use shampoo. I suggest using a colour enhancing shampoo to try and hold the colour as long as possible. The only other downfall I can say about the Manic Panic hair dyes are how they really do kill your hair, Before Dying it, my hair use to be around 10cm longer, and because of the original bleach and the constant colouring it is harsh on my hair- as expected though, It’s not a natural process.

So Guys, If you’re looking for a semi-permanent vibrant colour to brighten up your hair, I suggest giving Manic Panic a go, they stock them everywhere! (Australia: Hair house warehouse and Price attack are where I get mine from) There are so many colours and shades to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice- The lighter the hair the better the colour will hold- just remember that! Any Questions don’t be afraid to follow me on Instagram:  @teganaudrey and I’ll be happy to answer any of them!

For this weeks product review Monday, I give this product: 4 STARS OUT OF 5.

Good Morning Guys and Happy Monday! To kick start this week I’ll be reviewing the Fitbit flex wireless that I was given to as an anniversary present from my Boyfriend in December, 2014. Before getting this product I nagged and nagged for it! I just had to have it! Nothing makes me happier than being able to know how many steps I’m walking, how many calories I’m burning and having a cool little arm band wrapped around my wrist as well! Let me give you a little low down on the product. The slim device tracks your steps. Distance and calories burned. At night it is able to track your sleep qualities and can also wake you up silently in the morning through vibrations. There are many forms of the Fitbit but I’m reviewing the Flex wireless wristband product.

PROS: What I absolutely adore about this product is how easy it is to use. It sits on your wrist just as a wristband would and you give it a little tap to indicate how many steps you have taken that day, when you reach 10,000 steps- which is a daily goal it will vibrate and light up. What is so handy about the FitBit flex is that you download the app, and with the power of Bluetooth and a smart phone, you are able to see how many calories you have burned, how many steps you have taken, how you’ve slept and the distance you’ve walked/run. The app also allows you to challenge other fitbit owners to weekly challenges- you can compete with who can take the most steps each day- A fun way to keep you motivated with your fitness goals. With the wristband, you are able to take the small usb device out of the wristband and change it to a new band with a different colour etc. The colours and styles aren’t limited and you don’t even feel like they are on your wrist. Its come to the point now, that If I’m not wearing my Fitbit I feel naked and worry if I have reached at least 10,000 steps that way. It is so easy to charge. I charge it overnight, once a week and It has always been reliable with battery. There is also a website you can go to and start up an account to keep yourself on track further.  It is constantly motivating me to keep walking, keep moving, and shows me that if my walking levels are low, that I need to be more active that day and move around. The Fitbit is an amazing way to keep you on track. If you are a fitness freak or are trying to benefit your health or become more active, you need the Fitbit in your life!


CONS: When I go onto the app of my Fitbit Its often telling me I’ve already burnt many more calories then I know I would have.  I wake up, walk for only 10 minutes, or travel to work and my Fitbit tells me that over 1500 calories had been burnt, how though? I’ve hardly done anything!? When it comes to calorie counting I personally do not track it from what my Fitbit is saying, I stick to different forms of calorie counting like my cardio machines at gym or look up per how many steps I’ve taken what the calories would be. I don’t have many cons when It comes to the FitBit flex, however I had a pretty disappointing moment with mine last week. I charged it all night, put my wristband on, went for a very long walk and went to check my progress and no lights were coming on. I tapped and tapped and tapped, tried to sync the device with my app and nothing would work. I searched the web for a way to help and I came by heaps of people that the same issue had happened too! The best and most popular answer was that on the fitbit charger, there is a small reset button on the back that you can stick a pin into and reset the device without losing your stats. As soon I did this my fitbit came back on but was very low battery, so I needed to re charge my fitbit, which doesn’t take too long, so in no time I was back using my fitbit! Apart from those 2 small issues, I could not fault the device at all.


The flex is so handy, so easy to use and provides you with information that would really help your fitness journey!

Hi Guys! I thought that I would begin to do a weekly Monday product review. Anyone who knows me, knows I am always experimenting with new products I find, or trying new things- and half the time I end up regretting what I brought because there wasn’t enough reviews on it, or the reviews that the product had were all fake to promote the product more! So I thought, Maybe I could save another sucker for buying products some money if I review the bad experiences I’ve had, and also help people make the commit to buying a product if I myself loved it and believe its worth the buy! Okay, So onto my first product, I’m a sucker for trying anything that is supposed to help with weight loss, and 98% of the time, I’m NOT satisfied with the product, So to kick start my product reviews, Here is my review on the popular ‘Skinny me Tea’


PRODUCT: Skinny Me Tea.

There’s a tea that is constantly getting sold to young girls and girls with self-esteem issues, who want to lose weight or need help in losing weight. Almost 2 years ago I decided to try this tea. I had seen so many pictures on their Instagram and all these transformations. I’ve always struggled with hating the way I look- and being 18 at the time I wanted something that would help me with my goals as eating healthy and exercising just wasn’t doing enough, I thought at the time it wasn’t anyway. I decided to give it a shot because the photos and the results looked incredible. I searched their website (, found the product, and brought a teatox called the 28 day teatox (I don’t think they sell 28 day teatox any more, they only sell the 14 day teatox to use less product but get more money out of people) I was a bit thrown off by the price, paying $35.00 (which is what they charge now for 14 days) for 28 days’ worth of tea.. Really? But I dealt with it because I thought, hey $35.00 to get one step closer to my weight loss goals? I’m happy with that. So the tea took about a week to arrive, and the way it worked was you took one tea particularly in the morning, and then a different tea every second or third day at night. I must admit, I did enjoy the taste of the morning daily tea; It made me feel more awake and it was great to sip on while I was at work, however the tea that they asked you to take every 2-3 days at night time, was horrible. Not only did it taste horrible and disgusting to drink, however I would wake up around 3-4 in the morning from my sleep needing to use the toilet or vomit (sorry TMI but its true) It would give me the worst stomach ache, I would hold my tummy for hours at night and end up so exhausted because every time I had to drink this tea I would get so, so sick. My parents tried to get me to stop so many times, because they could even see how sick it was making me, but being young and stupid, I kept going thinking that the results would be worth it in the end. I got to the end of the 28 days, took a photo and I was the exact same weight, still bloated, looked the exact same, but felt worse on the inside! I paid almost $40.00 for a complete and utter let down! I spoke to some personal trainers after my experience and they were all in shock that I even tried it, they all has an understanding on the product and told me how bad it was and how much of an absolute rip off it was- they told me the best thing for me to do would be to drink green tea and lemon infused water and save so much money by doing it! I couldn’t believe how right they were! I look back on the decision I made to try the tea and realise how much of an absolute idiot i was! Ive since learnt the best way to lose weight is to stick to a healthy lifestyle change, exercise, drink plenty of water and be HAPPY. Honestly guys, this tea is not only a waste of money but isn’t good for you.The restless nights, horrible taste, upset stomach inst worth it, your health should be your number 1 priority and drinking this tea doesn’t help that at all! Save your money Guys! Give this one a miss!
