Skin after Easter: Foreo Luna review

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that I’ve had way too many chocolates over this Easter break and what happens when you eat too much chocolate, you break out, well for me at least.

This blog post today, is all about my new favourite cleansing tool for my face. I am currently in love with the Foreo Luna for combination skin. Now I have been eyeing this baby out for years and I never could completely commit because it was just so out of my price range. It currently retails for $249 AUD but I do know the mini ones are $179 AUD. I found this on sale at David Jones for 30% off and you bet I jumped up and down with excitement and monkey gripped that thing until I took it to the register. Sometimes I really love sale time!

I decided to grab the Foreo Luna because even thought the mini is so cute and travel convenient, I love how the flipside of the Foreo Luna helps with the ageing process. One side is great for cleansing and getting rid of all the dirt, sweat and makeup that’s stuck in you pores but the other side helps with anti ageing just by placing them on specific points of your face, they recommend 12 seconds for each spot. I figured with a 10 year quality guarantee that when I start to get older, I will be loving this a lot more for my face and if you didn’t know that when you hit 25 years of age that’s when your anti ageing products come into play. So look for products that are global anti ageing, then you’ll know you’re covered.

When I first used this I noticed an immediate difference, my skin looked a lot more radiant and fresh. Not only did it cleanse effectively, I worry less about those little expression lines. I also realised how much makeup I was missing when washing my face with just my hands. My skin also felt super soft that I had to refrain myself from touching it. It also has 8 different speeds. A good guide I like to tell people when using cleansing tools is that the slower the speed the deeper the cleanse and the faster the speed the more superficial or on top cleansing it is.

I love how it’s 100% waterproof, non porous which means no bacteria sticks onto it, gentle on my skin and what really is amazing is that once fully charged (which only took up to one hour), you can use it up to a year before it needs to be fully charged again.

If anybody is thinking about getting this product, I highly recommend it, best life decision you will ever make and even if you’re unsure, check out the reviews on their website. Don’t forget, the cleaner your skin, the better your products will absorb.

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this post and found out some useful information and I’ll be back with another blog soon.

Love, Caroline xx.

How I get fresh glowing skin

I think one of the best parts of my job, tiring as it is, is the fact that I get to try new products and when it comes to getting your glow on, I’m just all over that!

Somebody wise once told me that, nobody ever says wow, you’ve got beautiful, matte skin and I’m pretty sure I laughed so hard because it’s just too true, you really don’t. We all talk about that beautiful healthy glow and I mean who doesn’t want to look fresh and pretend that they eat healthy food all the time. The very first time I put this product on my face I instantly fell in love.

With a lot of products I try for the first time, I always think I’m in love with them in the beginning but then I realise it’s just not good for me in the end, like the 2 donuts I had today. I am currently using Red earth’s Illuminating Loose Powder in 01 Pearl.  This product is just amazing and unlike the bad donut decision, I don’t regret this at all.

I am a powder setter, I always finish my makeup off with powder no matter loose or pressed I pack that stuff on because it’s the only way I know my makeup will stay on throughout the day. This particular powder is so super fine that it makes your skin feel velvety soft, but even better once applied and blended throughout the skin, the luminosity appears instantly. I love how it comes with a powder puff because when you press powders into the skin, the better it sets your makeup. I team this powder up with Estee Lauder’s Double wear and for my skin it just works, not only does it look more flawless, but my skin really looks like it’s glowing.

It does also come in another shade and that is Magician which is more of a soft gold which works well on more warm tones. In saying that, there really isn’t too much colour once applied, but I can definitely see why they would have two because it can also be used on its’ own to help enhance radiance on bare skin but also used as a highlight. Make your cheekbones eat their heart out!

Let me know what your current favourite powder is or even if you’ve tried this one and until next time..

For firmer, more beautiful skin

Whenever I attend training sessions for work, I get so into whatever it is that is being talked about that after the trainer has gone I always buy a couple of things.

Sure when it comes to our skin we can get a little bit lazy. It’s the end of the day and all you want to do is hop into bed with your pillows and maybe some netflix and you just kind of forget about everything else.

Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to moisturise a lot more during the colder seasons and the only reason for this is because I can actually see how dry my skin is, whereas in the hotter seasons, my skin doesn’t get as dry and honestly I really just hate the feel of anything on my skin after I’ve had a nice cold shower.


I’ve currently jumped on the L’occitane wagon and I’ve been using their Almond range for a couple of months now.

First off, the Amande Shower Oil. When I first heard about this, I thought it was going to be oily and leave a slimy residue on my skin. Everybody knows water and oil do not mix so it confused me as to how this was going to work. After use I found that it didn’t leave that oily film, but it also cleansed and softened my skin.

I have however noticed that after I’ve used it my skin feels a little bit tighter which was great to see as I was taught that this was the beginning product to use in order to help firm and tone the skin.

Next up and probably my favourite from the range is the Amande Supple Skin Oil. This oil melts into the skin and reveals such a beautiful glow. It leaves me with super smooth and supple skin that I can’t help but tell people to feel me.  This oil is designed to work on the problem areas of the body, so your thighs or your belly, pretty much anywhere that you need some firming. It does take a little while to absorb into the skin, so give it a while before dressing as it does transfer onto other materials.

I bought this last product because my feet and calves always ache at the end of the day. I blame my boots but they’ve just been with me too long that I can’t get rid of them. The Amande Lighter Legs really refreshes tired legs. I like to massage it into my calf muscles and feet and honestly it feels 10 times better. It’s also great for increasing circulation around certain areas.

They do have another product in this range that I am dying to try and that is their milk concentrate which I’ve heard leaves skin even softer, so that will definitely be my next purchase. Make sure you try these products out, I love them and until next time..

The next best nail trend

I am probably one of the biggest fans of painting my nails, maybe it’s the fumes getting into my head, but I love taking the time to just do my nails.

When I have the time, I especially love getting acrylics done. I always ask if they can shape them into a point because that’s the type of shape I love. My nails are still recovering from my last set of acrylics and because I’ve been so hands on at work these past few months, I haven’t had the chance to get them done and instead I’ve discovered the next best thing!

I am in love with these fake nails by Elegant Touch. They were all the craze in London Fashion Week and I can see why.

There aren;t too many designs, but I picked up these two from my local supermarket. Inside contains about 2 or 3 sets of fake nails for both of your hands. All you have to do is measure the sizes that fit yours the best and then stick them on.

For me, they lasted around 4 days before they got to that dirty stage. I noticed that they don’t fall off as fast as the regular ones you glue on, but because the glue on the nails isn’t applied over the entire nail, there is a gap.

I love how these are super easy to apply. All you do is press them on. I found these particularly helpful when taking off my acrylics. My nails would always break, so I used these as a cover up for my real nails.

I’m also a huge fan of these minnie mouse ones.

Once you take them off, the remaining glue left on your normal nail can just be removed with nail polish remover. These are also really great for those last minute events where you totally forgot that you had to paint your nails.

Let me know if you’ve tried these and until next time..

Byeeeeeee!! xx.
