Do you mousse?

Ultimate Styling Mousse

Mousse usually brings back bad memories from the eighties and it used to be something that created semi-hairstyles like Cam Diaz in Something About Mary. However they have been re-invented and when I recently took stock of my hair products I found three hair mousses lying around, all from Schwarzkopf. This is one of the reasons I need to do Project 50 Pan. Mousse used to make my hair even more tanglier but thanks to the Tangle Teezer, this is not an issue anymore.

Winter Body Saviour

Moisturising during winter

Moisturising in winter can be so hard because it's freezing and it's the last thing you want to do before putting on your clothes after a shower. Also, why have they not invented bra-warmers yet? Oh well. I like things to be convenient and I am therefore loving this Neutrogena combo because they both come with pumps. It is just so easy, no unscrewing a lid required and the products are of a generous 250ml size so they last a while. I bought mine from Priceline for $12.99 each and I have not been disappointed.

Shellac

Shellac nail polish

Last year I jumped onto Shellac pretty quickly because I heard so many raves from girlfriends and I loved the idea of my nail polish not chipping too quickly. What made me stop getting it was that I wanted to change my colour more often and also the process is a little time consuming. For Christmas I gave a voucher for Shellac and got one back from my bf's sister so we organised to go last Thursday. My nails were in desperate need of a good file and shape because in my experience shellac makes your nails stronger (not like acrylics) I wanted them to get nice and long with no chips or splits.

When I first started having Shellac manicures done there were not many choices of colour but I saw that a lot of new ones had been launched since I last had it done. I knew I needed a neutral colour because of work and I don't mind a pretty pink so because you can layer shellac colours I got one shade of Strawberry Smoothie and one shade of Romantic. They are both different shades of pink.

Are parabens dangerous?

Are parabens dangerous?

The focus on parabens is becoming increasingly larger each year. When I was in Norway recently I couldn't help but notice that a lot of cosmetic products were labelled paraben-free but do they need to be? Is it just the new bandwagon we are jumping on or is it safe to "consume" parabens?

Perfect facial bronzer

Facial bronzer

When I was in uni I used to have a facial every month. It was just routine and a priority to me. Fast-forward to after graduation and I moved suburbs, worked full-time and I couldn't find a place that suited me. I have tried 5 salons in the past 2 years and I was just tired of filling out a new form everywhere and also being questioned (more like interrogated) by the beauty therapist about my skincare regime. One therapist tried to sell me a $250 serum which is diamond infused with water for hydration. I am 24 and can just drink more water instead. It grew quite tiresome and I just didn't go as often.
