Sugar Baby

For all the fake-tan lovers, this is both my all time favourite DIY fake tan and bronzer range, which also happens to be not tested on animals! I love the Suntanned Sweeties Golden Glamour spray, and now they have sunblock as well! The bronzer power is great for a night out, and I rather like the 'Glossy Flossy' shimmer spray pre-beach - it's a tan enhancer with the just the right amount of shimmer. Check them out at

Fudge hair products have been my staple for over 10 years. The range is amazing, it's not particularly expensive compared to other salon only brands and they smell fabulous. My hair stylists always comment on how glossy and healthy my hair is. I don't know what I'd do without Fudge! They also have a limited range of styling products in supermarkets now at super low prices; I've tried a few and they're just as good as the salon equivalent. I have long curly hair and live a very active lifestyle, so between the gym, sun, sea and general outdoorsiness, it takes a lot to keep my hair in check, and with Fudge you'd never know my daily struggle!

Skinfood - Updated!

I've been trying a few of Skinfood's product's and have been unimpressed by the facial wipes and exfoliating cleanser. However, I absolutely adore the SPF 15 Moisturiser; very light and fresh feeling but provides great protection from the sun without making my skin break out. I've been using it for a few weeks and my skin has hardly been so soft and blemish free. Check out their website to read about it for yourself -  

Update! I've also recently tried the mud masque, and it's heavenly! I pop it on once a week and my skin is so much brighter afterwards. Definitely worth a try.

Yes to Carrots - Wider Range!

The below post was done right after Yes to Carrots hit our shelves here in Auckland. Since then, I've ventured to the Yest to Tomatoes skincare range. I have combination skin that is really prone to acne, and have slowly migrated to the daily exfoliating scrub, facial wipes and daily face moisturiser. They are some of the most effective products I've ever used, and I have tried all the leading brands, the salon products, supermarket ranges, everything. Might just be a good fit for my skin but I am a convert.

My routine now is pore scrub in the morning, followed by moisturiser, then at night a facial towellete to remove makeup and grime.

Have just discovered a new product in the supermarket in the 'Yes to Carrots' range of toiletries and skincare. I've started by trying the Pomegranate Lip Butter and am smitten - not over scented, color free so a good base for gloss on top and SPF 15. Yes to Carrots are PETA approved and carry the bunny logo, so rest assured your purchase won't be hurting any bunnies! Watch this space - I'll be trying more of the range as current products at home run out. You can check out the full range at:
