8 May 2016 - Mother's Day & My Big News !

8 May 2016 is a very special day for me and will always be one I will remember. 

Today is my birthday and since it is the second Sunday in May, we are also celebrating Mother's Day today.

This Mother's Day is very special as I not only get to celebrate my beautiful mum but I also get to celebrate this day as a mother, my very first one.

Empties #15 - Products I have used Up !

This post is long pending, I clicked this long time back but somehow just didn't manage to get this up. 

L'Occitane Milk Concentrate - I don't know where to begin, my love for this product is too much. This is a glorious, luxurious body cream, if you are willing to spend a bit more money, I would highly recommend it. When I am feeling spendy, I will definitely repurchase it. Review HERE

L'Occitane Almond Scrub - This is from the same range as above. I quite liked it but its not my favorite. If you want to try something from the range, I would recommend the shower oil or the milk concentrate. Repurchase, mostly not. Review HERE

The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel - This is an amazing body wash from The Body Shop. I absolutely loved it. If you love citrus fragrances this is a must try. Its perfect for summer. Previous mention HERE

Schwarzkopf Ultimate Oil Elixir* - I really liked this mask. What I loved was that it was a 1 min mask, which is perfect for lazy people like me. It made my hair soft and shiny.

Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick - Review and Swatches

'The Only 1 lipstick' is Rimmel's new lipstick launch in Australia. I haven't tried much from the brand's lip department except the Kate Moss Nude Collection but knowing they are so popular in the beauty community, I was super excited to try this range.

What the company says
•    A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
•    The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power
•    Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application

The Only 1 lipsticks are very highly pigmented. I love that these lipsticks feel very nice and comfortable on the lips. They are neither matte nor glossy. There's a lot to offer in the shade department with 12 shades to choose from.

These lipsticks last fairly okay on me. I have had coffee and a full meal wearing these and they don't totally disappear like some lipsticks do. They wear off around the mouth, which is okay as I don't mind reapplying.

I have been getting a lot of wear of the red shade 'Best of the Best'. I love that its such a bold color, yet comfortable unlike bold matte formulas.

Review - Kosmea Rose Collection !

I was recently sent Kosmea's Rose Body collection and I was super excited to try the range as its an Australian natural skincare brand and the range is all about roses. 

Kosmea is celebrating Valentine’s Day 2016 with its new sensuous Rose Body Collection - beautifully packaged for 14 February. The range retails for 29.95. 

The Rose body collection consists of a body lotion and a hydrating rosewater mist.

If you are a regular reader of my blog you know I love face mists and the Kosmea Hydrating Rosewater mist didn't let me down. The facial mist smells absolutely heavenly and feels very fresh and hydrating on the skin. The packaging is simple and sturdy, and the mist sprays evenly. I use it before my moisturiser or as a refresher. If I am not taking a shower in the morning, I use the mist on a cotton pad as a quick cleanser/toner.
