Balance Water (Review)

Hey Guys,

So i’ve been trying water from the company Balance.

Its locally sourced from a bottler who is only one of 5 who have a licence to bottle the spring water, which means they are not damaging the environment by using up all the natural resources.  The water is not shipped around the world so they don’t contribute to the carbon footprint, they are an all Australian product!!!!  The wildflowers are sustainably handpicked on private properties, so that means no farming.  

The bottle are PET and recyclable which is something I love about it! Contains no flavours, colours, preservatives, artificial additives, sugar or calories.

It has a mild diuretic property to help flush out all the things your body doesn’t want to keep, making you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Now this has made me feel so good, and I absolutely love it! My partner has also been drinking the water and he has found that he goes to the bathroom a lot more haha.

But honestly if your looking for a local water brand which has amazing bottle and is amazing quality then this is it!

You can find them at Coles and Woolies ;)

Lancome Paris - Teint Idole Ultra Wear (Review)

Hey guys, 

So today (and yesterday) i've been testing out the new Lancome Paris - Teint Idole Ultra Wear. Now i was lucky enough that when i got this online they has a conversion available so you could see what shade you were by comparing foundation you had bought from other brands. This was a life saver for me. It was pretty much spot on when i got it. 

Testing this foundation i needed it to pass 3 tests. 1) It would not rub off on my clothes, 2) It was able to last all day without fail, 3) would not make me break out the next day. 

So for the first test obviously it was easy to test. I ended up decided to wear it on a day i knew i would be doing a lot of physical activity at work. So imagine i've done my makeup and i'm now about to put on my work shirt. My hearts pounding as i don't want to dirty it because then its just extra laundry i don't want to have to do. But YAS! I've managed to put my shirt on and not get any foundation on it, now i know you thinking i might have tried everything to not get it on my shirt, but i swear i just threw it over my head and it brushed down by face. So this first test is a win. 

Second test up, i've gone all day wearing this lovely foundation which is quite light i might add. Now most of the time i find that some foundations will normally start to scale near the nose, but this did not happen with the Teint Idole Ultra Wear. I was doing a lot of physical activity, but i wasn't sweating like a pig at the gym. Another win, so 2/3 so far. 

The third test is really important to me. I find that after shooting, the next day depending on the brand the makeup artist has used, i could end up breaking out really badly. So today comes and we are in the home stretch. I've woken up to not having broken out. My skin is also not overly dry, which is great.

My three important tests have now been passed and i'm happy to say, i'm a happy wearer!! ALSO LADIES! It comes in 40 shades :D  

Lancome Paris - Genifique Hydrogen Melting Mask (Review)

So i luckily got a chance to try out the new Lancome Paris - Genifique Hydrogen Melting Mask, and can i say i was actually really impressed. The results were better then what i expected which is absolutely great! 

Initially when pulling it out of the packet i found it hard to pull out without getting my hand messy with the serum that they use. It takes some time to actually get your grip on the mask and get it onto your face. Can i just say that i was in no way graceful at it haha.

Once on your face you have the option of leaving it on the 10 minutes (usually before you begin your day), 20 minutes (in the evening) or 30 minutes (before you go to bed). I opted for the 30 minutes because why not. Now i must say that that mask is large because its make to fit all faces, so it took some time to place it where i wanted it to be. But once its on you may need to lay back to keep it in place. As said before, there is a lot of serum. After the 30 minutes, i took it off and washed my face. I didn't notice a difference straight away but i was hopeful that by the next morning i might see some differences.

Indeed the next morning i did see some differences. My face seemed to have more life in it, and i generally look terrible when i wake up. I also found that it made my skin softer then normally, especially after a whole day of shooting the day before. 

So overall, i was really happy with this product and would recommend for those who wear a lot of makeup during the day. I also found it helps for dry skin making it more moist if used for 30 minutes the night before.
