Bad Product and Mini Shopping Spree

Hi all!

Today I went out shopping to spoil myself after working so hard all easter and because I'm finally not sick anymore :)

As you may know by now, I love Priceline, so of course I had to go there!

One product that caught my eye was the Innoxa skin care range. They had testers available so I used the Vitamin Enriched Lotion SPF15 (for dry to normal skin) just a smidge on the back of my hand. I just want to see the texture, smell, absorbancy and residue. Regardless of what I thought, I wasn't going to buy it just because I already had alot of items including a moisturiser that I wanted to purchase.

So happy I didn't get this product because it caused a massive irritation to the skin which I tested it on. It's still itchy and red several hours later and the product is definately washed off by now. I'm so thankful it was just a spot on my hand and not my whole face.... :/

Anyway, I won't bore you with details of what I bought but I just wanted to share my experience with the Innoxa moisturizer and let you all know that I do not recommend this product.

Take care
Annaliza :)

March/April Beauty Favourites

Hi all!
I haven't had alot of time to check out new products lately so I've mostly been sticking with old favourites and in some cases, I've also been re-discovering old favourites.

Here are some old favourites I've rediscovered:

Nivea fruity shine lip balm (strawberry)

As I've stated previously, I love lip balm. One thing I love even more is TINTED lip balm. Trust me, it makes a difference. Plus it smells like candy :P

Palmer's cocoa butter formula: moisturizing body oil
I have dry skin, so I moisurise daily. With the colder weather setting in, my regular moisturizer just wasn't making the grade. This has been my saviour. It doesn't leave any residue, just soaks right in, and leaves my skin with a nice silky sheen.

New products I've come to love:

Clinique even better foundation
This foundation not only matches my skin colour pefectly, but also my skin type. It makes my skin look so great on it's own. I don't even really need concealer or anything. Not to mention its staying power. I could wear this morning, noon and night without having to do any touch-ups. 

B collection by Bloom nail polish
This is one of my favourite nail polish brands. The quality is up there with the likes of O.P.I. They come in a huge range of colours all named after cities of the world. My favourites at the moment are Luxembourg and Amsterdam.

That's all I can think of right now. If I think of any more, I'll post it at a later date.
Good night!!

Its been a while...

Hi there!

So it's definately been a while since my last post. Sorry!! Sometimes life just gets in the way lol. Just been busy. busy with work, study and I've been sick the past couple of days :(

This post is basically just goiong to be a catch-up session. We'll just be like 2 old friends talking about whats been going on in our lives recently over coffee :) This is whats up with me....

Today is ANZAC day, which for those who don't know, is a day when all Australian's remember those who served in wars past. There are parades and the whole country basically stops for the day to honour them. It's a beautiful tradition.

Anzac day is definately not something that you can explain accurately in a few sentences and I didn't really do it justice. Sorry guys :(

It was also Easter during this 5 day long weekend :) Hope y'all got spoiled with lots of delicious chocolates!

This month, I also went to Supafest. Supafest is the biggest urban music festival in Australia (and I heard somewhere it's the biggest in the world). There are so many amzing artists that perform there. I got to see Tiao Cruz, The Game, T-pain, Busta Rhymes, Nelly, and Snoop Dogg. I had the best time. I'll defs be back next year!!

Hope you've all been safe and well.
I'll be back soon. Promise xox
