Having recently gone from dark hair, then a bit lighter, and then bleached blonde isn't exactly the best treatment for your hair. So when I made the big change a few weeks ago I was rather worried that my hair would be damaged and turn to straw. Luckily for me I was in good hands as the Brand Ambassador of Franck Provost Paddington, and my hair is still soft! I did however ditch all the cheap shampoos and conditioners that I had bought from the supermarket and invested in Kerastase Strengthening Shampoo and Kerastase Masque Therapiste and I can honestly say it does make a huge difference. Available at Franck Provost Paddington & Double Bay.
I am a big fan of the Hibou Naturel Skincare range because it is organic, and feels amazing on the skin. I am especially enjoying the enchanted range; and the smell of the toner and cleanser is exquisite; a blend of orange essential oil and vanilla infused jojoba oil. These products are suitable for those with acne prone skin as they contain botanical extracts that work as an anti-inflamatory. Made from 100% natural and locally sourced certified organic ingredients, The Enchanted Range by Hibou Naturel includes a cleanser ($22.95), tonic ($19.95) and hydrating lotion ($29.95) in a delicious unisex tropical scent.
The Organic Skin Co Purely Primer is a 'must have' in my makeup purse. Made with 78.1% organic ingredients this primer smoothes on easily and gives a great base for either foundation or BB cream. I have even applied this many times without moisturiser and personally, I feel like it's just as good as a moisturiser. Lunar is a botanically rich, mineral-based primer that hydrates, minimizes shine, and creates a smooth canvas for flawless makeup application. This primer has antioxidant rich formula as well as aloe vera and botanical extracts. It's fantastic and available online - all the products from this company are fabulous.

Do you ever wonder what you put on your lips? I've been wearing lipstick since I was a teenager and in recently times I've liked the long-lasting lipsticks until I realised how hard they were to actually take off, and if you get them on your fingers or other make up products they are difficult to remove also. That's why I like Burt's Bees lipstick. Great colours (14 shades) with 8-hour moisture. Made with 100% naturally moisturizing ingredients like moringa and raspberry seed oils to help soften and condition your lips all day long. These lipsticks do not dry out lips because of the ingredients, such as Beeswax, Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, and Vitamin E. $19.95
The Sephora Sleeping Mask is just that....sleep with a luxurious cream-gel texture that absorbs into the skin while you sleep. Use once or twice a week. The first time I used this mask I noticed my skin was brighter the next morning, and it doesn't feel like you are wearing a face mask at all; more like an intense moisturiser so don't worry about leaving stains on the pillow. $20
