Jurlique Supreme Range + Activating Water Essence Review




Finally a new post on here, it's been way too long! Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the Jurlique Supreme range and their activating water essence. I have been testing their products out for about 1 month now and I have a lot of thoughts to share with you guys. 

First and foremost, these products smell amazing and their packaging is to die for! 

And if that didn't grab your attention, Jurlique is an Australian based natural beauty brand with an amazing story and ethos. All of their botanical ingredients are grown and handpicked on their farm in South Australia, which is so amazing especially if you are from Australia, into natural plant-based skin care products and are looking to support our local businesses and brands in this harsh time.

Without further ado, here is the review!

1. Jurlique Activating Water Essence - this is honestly such a lovely luxury product to add into your daily routine. I've been using it immediately after cleansing and tapping it into my skin with my bare hands. It adds instant hydration to my skin and also smells heavenly. I legitimately feel like I am at a high-end luxury spa when using this essence, and who doesn't want that?!

2. Jurlique Supreme Restorative Rich Cream - again with the spa-like aromatherapy sensation, I just love the natural scent from all of these products! This cream is super rich and nourishing and perfect if you have dry and dehydrated skin like me. It is also anti-ageing and just like the eye balm that I talk about next, I have noticed a gradual reduction in some fine lines, mainly around my smile lines. Is there anything this cream can't fix?

3. Jurlique Supreme Eye Contour Balm - if you just get one of these products, make it this one. This is my favourite product out of all the Jurlique products I have tried! Now I'm a bit sceptical about eye creams, I've heard many many dermatologists tout them as just glorified moisturisers, but there is something so special about this eye cream! I actually think it is the best eye cream I have ever used, and I try ALOT of eye creams! This cream is so rich and nourishing for the under eye area, every morning I wake up after wearing it my dark circles are banished and fine lines are gone. It's literally that amazing. I am also obsessed with the little applicator it comes with. The little metal ball is so soothing and helps reduce puffiness under my eyes instantly. Even when I run out of this eye cream, I will for sure be keeping this applicator to use with all my other eye creams!

4. Jurlique Supreme Rejuvenating Serum - and finally the serum! Such a great addition to my routine in both the morning and evening and has definitely made my skin softer and more radiant. It's a thinner consistency than their cream so will perfect to use going into the warmer months here in Australia. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for some light hydration and generalised skin brightening!

All of the Supreme range contains Jurlique's Biosome6 complex which allows for deeper penetration of all of their active ingredients into the skin, in turn producing even more amazing results in your skin! I would definitely recommend checking out their site for more information on all the amazing ingredients and technology they incorporate into all their products if you are interested in purchasing any of these products!

I hope you guys all enjoyed this review! Which product sparked your interest the most?

A Few Isolation Beauty Favourites




Wow, hasn't it been awhile since I wrote a post on here! Almost 6 months! In all honesty, having the motivation to write lengthy blog posts has been sparse lately. Obviously, with everything going on in the world currently, my year has not gone to plan along with a lot of other people's. Unfortunately, I think a few of my goals for the year will have to be pushed back to next year. One of them being that I wanted to go part-time in my job as a veterinarian to focus on building my creative digital business. Currently, my job is stable, and I have continued to work full-time hours through all of this which, while I am very grateful for, has also taken a lot out of me. And I know I'm not alone. All of my colleagues, too, are feeling extra strained as we work hard during the pandemic and extra stresses of everyday life currently.

However, I miss sharing my favourite things with you guys and making beautiful images for you. I am a lot more frequent with doing both of these on my Instagram (@anneinthedollhouse), so if you're keen to see more I'd definitely check out my account there. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy this short and sweet round-up of a few beauty pieces I'm currently loving.

1. Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser - such an amazing cleanser that deeply cleanses but leaves the skin hydrated. Packed with heaps of antioxidants and no nasty ingredients such as synthetic fragrances or SLS!

2. Youth To The People Superfood Firm & Brighten Serum - This is my THIRD time repurchasing this product! I haven't used it for months now because it's always such a splurge but while it's pricey it sure works! It brightens any acne scarring I have lingering and just leaves the skin glowy and plump. I have been loving using this every morning again recently.

3. Aesop Ressurection Hand Balm - I have talked about this SO much on my Instagram lately! Obsessed with this to keep my hands hydrated during all the extra handwashing, plus it smells divine.

4. Summer Fridays Jetlag Mask - okay so I've liked this for a while now but recently I have rediscovered it. instead of using it as an overnight mask, I've been using it as a 10-minute mask and then rinsing it off (as it is supposed to be used per the instructions). And guess what, I actually love it so much better this way! It gives the skin a quick pick me up and can be used at any time of day this way!

5. Bare Skinfood Multivitamin Creme - another product I've already talked a heap about on Instagram. Just a super nourishing cream which has been perfect for autumn, giving me that little bit of extra hydration I need coming into the cooler months.

Tell me in the comments below, what's a current favourite beauty product you've been loving during this time of isolation? I'd love to hear!

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Little Balm Holiday Collection Review




Today I have a post sharing my thoughts about all the new products just recently released by Little Balm. If you didn't already know, I'm a huge fan of the brand that hand makes all their products in Sydney so am super excited to be finally sitting down to write this post for you guys today!

Oatmeal Cookie Sugar Scrub - If you want to get into the Christmas spirit in the shower then look no further! This scrub smells just like Christmas in a tub. The scrub contains raw sugar, oats, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, vanilla, cinnamon and vitamin E so that your skin is super soft and smells good enough to eat! This scrub truly smells like a tin of Christmas cookies and is an experience you need!

Double Shot Eye Serum - With sweet almond oil, castor oil, rosehip oil, fairtrade coffee, vitamin E and carrot seed oil this serum will have your tired under-eyes looking refreshed and awake instantly which is a lifesaver for the party season! As a bonus, while I've been using this eye serum for the past month, I've also noticed that my eyelashes are longer and stronger and I really can't think of any other reason for this except for this eye serum! And even after a solid month of use, it looks as though I've hardly touched the bottle! Such great value for money and an amazing product, it's a win-win!

Lemon Pie Lip Balm - Any of Little Balm's lip balms are great as an essential in your handbag and beauty kit but this limited-edition flavour is such a beautiful scent perfect for summer. My go-to lip balm for this warm festive season! My lips feel plump and moisturised after every application.

So there you have it, a review of Little Balm's limited edition holiday collection! I would 100% not hesitate to purchase any of these products and they also make lovely stocking fillers for those in your life who are interesed in all natural, organic, handmade beauty. If you are interested in any of these products be sure to head to Little Balm's website here or just click on the product name in this post.

Must Have Products for a Glowy Summer Complexion


Hi guys, back here with a quick little post today on my 3 must have products for a glowy summer complexion! So here we go!

1. Kosas Tinted Face Oil - this amazing buildable tinted face oil is perfect for thos lazy summer days when all you want to do is lie by the beach. It can give a light to medium coverage depending on how many srops are used on the face. I find 3 for light coverage and 4+ for medium coverage personally. I love how this also has a subtle glow and just feels light and nourishing on the skin unlike a heavy foundation. Just everything you need for some coverage in the summer time!

2. Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF 50+ Superscreen - This is a no brainer! I apply this after moisturiser and before my Kosas tinted face oil. It does not feel like a sunscreen at all! It's thin, pleasant smelling and moisturising. I am now finally in the habit of applying this daily under my make up! All of my make up seems to sit well over the top of it too.

3. Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Serum - Not only does this product give you the most amazing bronze glow but it's also got anti-pollution properties to fight free radicals that cause ageing in our skin on a daily basis. My favourite way to apply this is mixing it in with either my moisturiser or sunscreen. Just on pump gives a beautiful glow that is visible through the tinted face oil. It's such a magical product!

With all three of these products combined I have a good skin day everyday and I am obsessed with how glowy and radiant my skin looks whilst feeling as though I have noe product on my skin at all. I highly recommend all these products for summer! They can all be found on the Australian Mecca website.

Hope you enjoyed this little post!

My Evening Relaxation Routine with Awake Skin




Finally back with a skincare post today and I'm so excited to share with you my evening routine and talk about this brand! Awake skin recently launched at the end of June this year and is Tarte's sister skincare brand. So of course when they offered to send me a few of their products to review I jumped at the chance! All of their products have quickly been incorporated into my nightly routine after a long day of work so I thought I'd talk through how I use them in my routine. Enjoy! xx

1. Awake Keep Calm & Roll On Clarity Cream - this little cream has come in handy, especially when I'm feeling a little tense after a long day. As soon as I walk through the door I apply this little gem to all my pulse points. It smells like peppermint and is perfect to rub into your temples, wrists and neck when getting home from work. I've never used a product like this before, but I have to say I think this may be the biggest surprise for me out of this collection. I was sceptical that a little cream would help me relax but truly just a few minutes after applying this cream I feel the peaceful vibes settling in, helping me to start the process of winding down after a long day. Such a great product!

2.  Awake Lip Sleeping Mask - This mask is amazing! Very comparable to the Laniege Lip Sleeping mask that I have recently run out of and was using this past year. As soon as I've had a long shower, eaten a healthy dinner and watched a little Netflix I am more than ready for bed. I apply this beautiful thick balm as I get into bed and find that it lasts until you wake up in the morning, sealing all the moisture in your lips while you sleep. I literally can't get to sleep without my lip mask now, it's become such a staple in my routine!

3. Awake Dream Mist Pillow Spray - ahh this is the kind of product that makes me wish smellagram existed! This scent is so dreamy, hands down my favourite ever sleeping mist I've dried. Not too overpowering, and has a more fresh lavender scent that lasts all night. Just as I'm about to let my head hit the pillow I spritz my pillow with gorgeous spray.

4. Vegan Pillow Case - I have used this pillowcase EVERY night since I received it! It's just as soft and functions just as well as my silk pillowcase but is a good vegan alternative. It also holds the scent of the pillow spray all night long. Such a dream to sleep with!

Safe to say I've been having some of the best sleep of my life recently thanks to these guys. If you're interested in checking out Awake skincare I highly recommend every product I've reviewed here! Click here to check out their website!
