I have been using Kevin Murphy for over 5 years now so have really developed a love for their brand and products. I feel like I really no my head around each product, what it does, house to use it, what hair type it works best on etc. I think this knowledge comes after using a product for so long, and it just becomes second nature. My hair kit is bursting with products at the moment from so many brands I love. I've collated my top 7 Kevin Murphy products that I either get asked about the most and that are my firm favorites. Id hate to know how many bottles I have gone through of each! Read on to find out more!
Benefit HELLO HAPPY Soft Blur Foundation is the newest Benefit Cosmetic 'must have'. I am so pleased benefit has created a NEW foundation with a wider range of shades numbering from 1-12.

I was recently invited to the launch of this in to the NZ market and was absolutely spoilt with the entire collection to try out for myself. A slumber party themed launch with hot choc and the benebabes in dressing gowns.
Lets talk Dermalogica. Ten years ago when I trained at The Makeup School I was introduced to this brand. I was so pleased that it was the one skincare brand TMS used. I was lucky enough to use this everyday at training which enabled me to learn the ins and outs of each products and how they best work on the skin. I was recently sent a few extra Dermalogica products to add to my collection so I wanted to share with you my thoughts on each product and my new routine.
My tan segment continues reviewing more from the Bondi Sands collection. Im actually impressed how large their collection is. I have been chatting a lot about each product on my insgram and I wanted to give you a full round up and review of what I really think so far about the products I have on hand. I know some of you were confused as what to purchase so I hope this blog post helps you narrow it down to the tan you think is best for you.
I also reviewed their Liquid Gold Tan and Every Day tan you can read up about these products here.

As a young teen before my career I suffered from oily skin, I used to be afraid to apply moisturizer to it from lack of knowledge how to look after my skin I guess. Fast forward 10 years my skin has done a full circle and is now mostly dry all over. I try to take decent care of my skin and have always followed a good routine. I wouldnt consider my skin to be that bad. I have been using the same products (asap skincare) for several years. You know when you find products that work and give you the results you want you stick with it right? It wasn't until Clinique sent me this duo of their Smart Moisturizer and the Fresh Pressed Booster that I thought what better time to mix up my routine, try something new, hope for good results and take part in the 7 Day Fresh Pressed Challenge...
This year my oldest daughter suffered from asthma. This is something my family has never had trouble with so It was a learning curve for myself and her. We suffered from it most over the cooler months so I introduced a few different things into our lifestyle including this Protect. A. Bed Tencel Mattress Protector. Her Asthma was worse at night so I decided that it may be something to do with dust mites around us, the protein in dust mites can trigger asthma and they float all around us ready to be inhaled!
Brows. We all long for that perfect shape, texture, arch, volume, you name it. Brows are in. They are one of the most important features on our face framing the rest of our features and helping to create a more polished look. I dont no about you but I have spent years working on my brows. Ive tried it all. Waxing, plucking, threading, revitabrow, all the brow growth serums out there to help grow my very sparse and fair brow hairs. With no luck I finally bit the bullet and made an appointment at Lash Noir Ink - which I had to wait 9 months for... and heres my results.
Recently I was sent the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold and the Everyday Liquid Gold Tanning Dry Oil to try out. Ive been a long time user and lover of the Bondi Sands Tanning Foam so was intrigued to try something new with such good reviews already...
As a mum, looking after my skin isn't often my number one priority and im sure many other woman can relate that buying expensive skincare also isn't on the top of our lists. However it is important to look after our skin and try and get some routine in place each day. I was sent the NEW by nature Charcoal and Purifying Range to try out...
