The Coffee Scrub (& Some Other Gorgeous Products) You Need for your Most Amazing Skin Yet!

Hi everyone, today I am back with a review of some more Little Balm products. Little Balm is a brand in Sydney that hand makes all-natural and sustainable beauty products to incorporate into your daily skincare routine, and as with my previous review, these other products of their's did not disappoint!

Mocha Body Scrub
Wow, what can I say? This is my favourite body scrub I've ever tried! Firstly, it smells amazing. I love coffee and this smells just like a coffee shop. Secondly, I love how fine the actual granules are. I've tried a few different coffee scrubs in the past and this one gives me the most gentle yet effective scrub. It's also super moisturising and my skin feels sooooo soft! The scrub contains organic raw sugar, virgin coconut oil, sweet almond oil, fair trade coffee, raw cacao and vitamin E. The perfect combination for amazing skin.  I've been using it twice a week coming into winter and I love how fresh and soft it's keeping my skin! This body scrub is one of my winter skin must-haves! Hopefully, I'll be doing a post on my winter skin essentials soon, and you can bet this will be included on that list!

Restore Face Mask
Ahhh this mask smells like chocolate and leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean and refined! Just like the Glow mask, mixed with a few drops of water and this mask is ready to be popped straight on to your face for a luxury home spa night. With kaolin clay, bentonite claw and raw cacao, my skin is left feeling smooth and the appearance of pores and blackheads is significantly reduced. Oh, and did I mention it smells like chocolate?

Rosie Face Toner
I love this mist for refreshing my make-up. This mist contains bulgaria rose water, alcohol free witch hazel, aloe vera extract and rose geranium oil. It smells so beautiful and adds such a lovely glow to my finished face! Unfortunately, I can't use this as a toner during my skincare routine as it seems to sting slightly when I use it on my bare skin. However, this beautiful calming mist works well for me as a mid-day refresh over make-up and allows me to enjoy a moment of peace during a busy day. I can 100% recommend this face mist for this purpose!

Little Balm Glow Face Mask and Unicorn Oil Review

Today I have a quick review of a couple of products I've been testing from this small natural skincare brand called Little Balm. All of their products are handmade from natural ingredients in Sydney and they have the cutest packaging! I've been incorporating these two products into my routine for two weeks now so thought I'd share my thoughts.

The first product is the Glow Facial Mask. The ingredients in this mask include Kaolin clay, bentonite clay, rose clay, rose petals and rose geranium oil. Just mix it with a couple of drops of water and you have the perfect mask for combating problem areas without drying them out, leaving my skin clear and glowing. I've used this a few times now and have noticed my break out clear up fairly quickly after this. Another thing about this product that I'm obsessed with is the delicate rose scent this has. It reminds of a perfume I've smelt at Mecca but I can not put my finger on which one, either way, it's an extra bonus that makes using this product feel luxurious.

I also tried the Unicorn Multitask Oil. The ingredients include coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, jasmine oil, lavender oil and carrot seed oil. This also has a very pretty botanical scent and the instructions on the back claim that it can be used to remove make-up, as a cleanser or as a moisturiser. Personally, my favourite way to use this product was as a moisturiser. When applied overnight I would wake up with hydrated and super-glowy skin. To be honest I didn't find it worked well for me as a make-up remover and left behind some traces of mascara. For that reason I will probably stick to my usual Bare Minerals oil-obsessed make-up remover or Clinique take the day off balm for removing make-up and cleansing. However, I love the results when used as a moisturiser and I will continue to use it in my routine this way!

I hope you guys enjoyed this little review of two of my current favourite products from Little Balm! Be sure to check out their website here and Instagram (@littlebalm) if you're interested in purchasing these products!

What's in my Bag for a Night Out?

Happy Sunday evening! Tonight I have a fun little post providing a checklist of essentials every girl needs for a night out. While I don't go out very often anymore, I ALWAYS find that whenever I do I forget something absolutely essential! So here's a little bag spill flatlay and a list of my favourite beauty products and accessories so that you too don't forget something super essential on a big night out!

1. A pretty clutch - like this one from The Daily Edited. I'm so obsessed with this brand and love that you get your initials embossed onto any of their products!

2. Lash curler & an amazing mascara - currently this Caution mascara from Hourglass is my favourite! Available here from Mecca Maxima.

3. Lipstick - especially for touch ups as you drink through all those cocktails over the night!

4. A portable comb or brush - no one likes their hair becoming a bird's nest. This one is from Seed Heritage.

5. Hair accessories to put hair up - VERY essential in my experience. You never know when you or your friend might need their hair swept up in an instant! I am obsessed with this scrunchie and hair clip from Scrunchies Australia. So practical, yet so cute!

6. Blush for a pretty pop of colour - like this one called Chilli Mango from Fenty Beauty. Available here from Sephora.

7. Bronzer - so you can fake beautiful sunkissed skin. My favourite at the moment is the Hourglass Ambient lighting one in Luminous Bronze Light. Available here from Mecca Maxima.

8. Glittery eyeshadow - and these ones from Stila are SO EASY to apply! This shade is called Bronzed Bell. Also available here from Mecca Maxima.

9. Some stylish earrings - a must to finish off your look.

10. And finally your phone and cards! Obviously.

Hoping you guys enjoyed this cute little post! What else would you add to your night out beauty essentials checklist?

The Two Key Products you NEED for Effortless Beach Waves

Summer in the Southern hemisphere may have drawn to a close, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up effortless beachy waves. Yesterday I FINALLY got my hair cut after almost six months (I know, I know, I'm shocking!) And my hairdresser styled my hair into some effortless beachy waves using these two products above: Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray and Kevin Murphy Doo Over - and my waves just looked perfect all damn day. So I knew instantly that I needed to go back and purchase these products and then write a blog post about them!

My Hair Philosophy
So in case you couldn't already tell - I am very lazy when it comes to my hair. Skincare? Sure, I'll apply a 20 layer skincare routine no questions asked! But ask me to blow dry my hair and I will straight out refuse. So I've never really put much effort into styling my hair on a daily basis. However, I feel these products make styling your hair daily effortless and provide such amazing results that I think I might just start spending the extra minute on my hair. The results look as though you've definitely spent more than a minute on your hair!

This is the star product - it gives your hair a bit of grittiness to help give it that beachy texture. My hairdresser used this on my hair before blow drying as it also has heat protectant in it, but it can be used on wet or dry hair. This morning I used it on my dry hair to help revive the curls from yesterday and it worked an absolute treat! I'm obsessed with this and can not recommend it enough! I'll most likely be using it daily to keep my hair looking super beachy and fresh, even in autumn.

This is the ultimate multi-purpose hair spray you've been looking for. Part dry shampoo and part finishing spray, it prolongs the life of curls while removing excess oiliness - perfect for lazy girls who like to wash their hair as little as possible a.k.a. me. 

Did I also forget to mention the Kevin Murphy packaging is also so sleek and gorgeous? I don't know about you, but I'm completely sold and so grateful my hairdresser opened my eyes to such amazing hair products!

I'd love to hear in the comments, do you have any lazy hair day products that instantly pep up your hair? I could really get into hair products like this!
