Paula’s Choice Skincare: Best Products (with video)

paulas choice thumbnail

My name is Michelle, and I’m a Paula’s Choice tragic. I first got into skincare around 2009. Back then we didn’t have all the brands we have now – and more importantly, we didn’t have all the skincare information we have now. Paula Begoun was one of the few lone voices in the internet landscape talking about the science behind …

Cheap Australian SPF Reviews: Coles, Woolworths, Aldi

Coles Woolworths sunscreen review

A lot of my favourite sunscreens aren’t the most budget-friendly. Unfortunately sunscreen testing and development is pretty expensive, and if you want to formulate an SPF product that’s really pleasant to use as well as being effective, it can be a long expensive process of trial and error. Enter: economy of scale. We have two major supermarkets in Australia: Coles …

Did we all have horrifying teenage skincare routines? I recently came across a photo of a TV Hits magazine cover from the early 2000s, and remembered how it was my first introduction to the concept of a skincare routine. I was a little obsessed with music magazines, and they often came with little samples of Clean & Clear’s 3 Step …

Reviewing More Cult Asian Products (With video)

Reviewing asian skincare and makeup products

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably tried Asian skincare products already.

emma lewisham pump jar

This is a sponsored post. Sustainability and environmental impact is a huge topic in everything these days, and it’s a tricky topic. It’s obviously something that the vast majority of us care about, but a lot of companies are approaching it in a way that’s easy to market even though it doesn’t make a lot of scientific sense. There’s a …

Eco Friendly Products? Zero Co Review

Zero Co Facebook Ad

My name is Michelle, I’m a millennial and I’m the opposite of a domestic goddess. And Facebook can obviously tell, because they’ve been serving me up Zero Co ads. Their branding is pretty much catnip for millennials. Obviously, I bought the whole set. I’ve now tried them all and I thought I’d review them because I think it’s a cool example …
