Lime Crime

Lime Crime Makeup on the Fashion Parade!  The model is wearing Circus Girl.  Available in Australia from http://www.whoelsaleskincare.com.au%20for%20$22.00/

Mineral Makeup - so many to choose from!

Price, Brands & Quality Ingredients
If you look around there are so many mineral makeup brands on the market it is hard to know which one to choose.  Some cost as much as $60.00 and $70.00 for enough to last 3 months, others can be as inexpensive as $36.00 and even less for smaller pots.

It is always worth checking what is in the makeup your buying so that you don't end up with an irriated skin after applying the powder!  Ask for the ingredients list and also make sure it is 100% Natural!

Some of the well know big brands do contain some ingredients that can irritate your skin, so just because it is a name you know does not mean it will not irritate your skin.

The colour of your foundation!
How many times have you purchased a foundation in a Department store, gone home and then realised that the colour really does not suit your skin tone. It's too bad that we were not able to get samples to take home to try in the real day light or in our own homes under our own lights!!  Cause if we were able to do that we probably would not have wasted our money! Right!

Samples
One of the advantages of the move to Mineral Powders as a foundation is that many brands will actually sell or give you a sample to take home to try in your own environment.  That way you can also ask girlfriends and partners if they agree the colour  of your foundation looks good on you before you invest your money.

Free Samples
One company - Wholesale Beauty Products in Melbourne is offering the opportunity for you to try the Sheer Miracle brand of makeup FREE- no potsal charges not charges at all.  It's all free, that's how confident they are that you will reall like this very economical brand of Mineral Makeup.  

If you would like a free sample of this brand then visit www.wholesaleskincare.com.au and see the link to ask for a free sample! 

Once you have found the right colour for you, you need to hurry back to buy a full size pot as it is on Sale for $26.00, down from $36.00

Skincare for all over your body Organic Spa Salt Scrub

You are probably like most people that think of their face when someone mentions skincare!

The fact is that there is skin all over over body and we really need to think about total skincare if we want to look our best all year round.  Throughout Winter we all rug up and keep our body skin covered, so it does not get a lot of sun or fresh air or attention, then along comes the Summer months and we want to uncover all the time.


Summer is when we want our body skin to be in really good condition and therefore we need to ensure our skin is smooth and hydrated so we get that great glowing tan and we keep it!  

If you are someone that likes to get a spray tan then you really must exfoliate your skin bfroe you go so you get an even tan.  The same for those that use a Self Tannning product at home.  Exfoliation will help to prevent those darker spots we get when your skin is dry and rough!


So looking out for an all over body scrub is a great way to improve your skin texture and remove all those dead skin cells.  Spa Salt Scrub by Elly B is really nice to use and it contains the best ingredients to improve you skin.  The price is reasonable and it comes in the cute little tub, so looks great as a Xmas Gift and at $30.00 for 300ms is really is a great gift!  

Read what Elly B say about their Scrub!
www.wholesaleskincare.com.au

Here is a sample of some of the looks you can create with Lime Crime Makeup. Let your creativity come through!


It' Party time



All the Colours of the Rainbow! 



The look of an English Rose



My Beautiful Rocket Lipstick $22.00(AUS)

How do you like to clean your face?

How do you like to clean you face?  I personally have to wash off a cleanser or use a face soap, I cannot just wipe off a cleanser as it does not feel right to me.

What do you prefer, I really would like to find out what the general view is on this?  Tell us your preference and why?

I have just reviewed a brand called Zora from Jordan, it is a mineral based range of skincare and it was very different from other products that I have used.

Facial Soap - Zora Mud Soap - this is a green bar of soap designed to really deeply cleanse your skin and provide a smooth and youthful glow.  Its has a great smell, however I could not find out what that was, as it does not say on the packaging.  It is made of lots of natural ingredients as well as minerals from the Dead Sea in Jordan.  It is a nice soap to use and my skin felt great after washing with the soap.

I also tried their Mud Mask on my face, and boy oh boy did that have a smell to it..just like Mud, well it was after all a Mud Mask so maybe I should have excepted that and it really did heat up my face.  My skin felt good after the mask but I am not sure I enjoyed the experience at all.

I then moved on the Organic Cleanser by Elly B - Purifying Cleanser, now this was really nice to use and smelled great.  My skin really did feel clean after using this one and the hydration was really good.  There is nothing worse than feeling all dried out after you clean you skin!!  I hate that.

The Purifying cleanser is $35.00 which is a good price for the 100ml and it is suited to all skin types.  You can buy this range online and from selected Beauty Salons or ask your Chemist to stock it.

    


Do you wash  or just wipe of the cleansers from your face? Share your views.

I would like to find some guest bloggers, so if you would like to comment or write form the blog on beauty, or fashion please email me your details - but first join as a follower please.  

Cheers for now and have a Brilliant Day!

How to keep your skin looking younger and healthier



If you want to keep your complexion looking as good as it can, then you do need to put some effort into maintaining your skin.

There are two key actions in my view that you must take every day and twice a day, and all up it will cost you about 10 minutues every day in total.......and everyone can find 5 mins in the morning and 5 mins at night.  No excuses, just do it!  


The two most inmportant things to keep those fine lines to a minimum are Cleansing and Moisturising and you should look to use good quality products for both of these actions.

1.  Cleansing the skin twice a day will really keep your skin fresh and glowing with health.  If you have a blemished skin then cleansing is key to reducing the inflamations at all times ( I know as I had oily and blemished skin in my teens)  Use a cloth with warm water to remove the cleanser as the cloth helps to exfoliate the skin.  You can use a simple face cloth or invest in one designed to help exfoliate (see picture below), either way just use a cloth!

2.A good Moisturiser, even if you have oily skin, moisturising the skin can help to balance it out and provide hydration - not oil- hydration. There are many moisturisers that work on oily skin so look around and find one that suits your skin type and budget.

Most skins are really craving a luscious and creamy mositurer that is made from natural and organic ingredients.  Always buy the best moisturiser you can with your budget and remember that the most expensive is not always the best.  Don't just by a name brand as that's what your paying for the name, but ,you need to make sure the ingredients are what your skin needs to stay healthy and radiant.

Buying the right products will make the expereicne of cleansing and moisturising your skin something you look forward too each day.

If you want to try Organic products I can highly recommend Elly B Organic skincare as the products are truely luxurious and creamy and do a great job and won't break the budget!

 Go for their Coconut Cleanser, it is creamy and smells great and will take off all your makeup. If you have the oily skin you will love their Purifying Cleanser.  As for the moisturiser I love the Aromatic which is really good on an oily skin or if you need a little more creamy moisture go for the  Essential Moisturiser - they are all excellent products.  The prices for Elly B clesnsers are $35.00 and the moisturisers are typically around $42.00 which is not that expensive really. 


                                   
You can buy Elly B from:    http://www.wholesaleskincare.com.au/  & get Free Post as well!
They come in great pump bottles so you do not waste product and you only pump out as much or as little as you need.  It is made here in Australia, so buy an Aussie product!

Mascara and what makes a good one

I don't know how many mascara you have tired in your life time, but I have tried  many in my research to find one that I would be prepared to sell.

There are some that are so complicated to apply that I gave up and some that had 3 different tubes of stuff to use, one was the white thickening fluff and then there was the black thickening stuff and then the actual mascara. OMG far to complex for me, but, that one ended up looking pretty good, in fact it looked like I was wearing false eye lashes, but all that fluff in your eyes, I am sure it is not good for you.

I tried the brand Blinc - they actually tube your lashes and do look good and sound like they are a healthy choice for you eyes, but they are so expensive.  I dont like to pay $35.00 or more for a mascara at all!

I have tried the cheaper stuff like BYS, now that was only about $12.00 and I can tell you it did a good job of seperating the lashes and then making them look thicker.  It compared to some that were RRP of $25.00 upwards..so BYS is not a bad buy.

I then found - Love Atti which I imported, it really is one of the best I have tried so far.  It is RRP of about $15.00 and when you do two applications your lashes will look really longer and thicker than they did before you applied it.  It does not clump up, it seperates the lashes.  I was very impressed with this one, so now I import the brand and sell it.

Makeup Artist Lauren Nolan of Melbourne has reviewed this product for us and she has given it her seal of approval.




So if you need a new mascara try Love Atti from http://www.discountskincare.com.au/

Organic skincare is the newest trend in Skincare

Skincare comes in many shapes sizes and styles, but the big trend really is to use natural ingredients and organic ingredients.

Why is Organic important you might ask?

When you look at how Organic ingredients are grown and derived it really makes a lot of sense to use skincare that has been developed with these types of ingredients.

No one likes to eat chemicals right?  So why put them on your skin?

Think back in time and you will know that many beauties from years ago only had natural plants and oils to use on their faces and they looked ok!  Natural skincare can give you a healthy and radiant complexion and there is nothing more youthful looking than a good complexion.  The Argan Gold Serum is really powerful with Anti Aging ingredients and it is made from 100% certified Organic Argan oil.

I have tried the 24hours face lift stuff which makes you face stiff and feel uncomfortable and I have tried a load of natural products which were rubbish as they were made by people that had no idea what they were doing.  Elly B is made with many years of expereince and a lot of love and care and thats why it is different.

This brand makes a brilliant Xmas gift as it is Australian made and just what the recessions needs us all to focus on - Australian brands and services.

I strongly recommned a brand called - Elly B Organic Skincare which is made in Australia and this brand is made from Organic and naturally derived ingredients.  If you like a nice creamy cream that feels like it is going to moisturise your skin then you will love this brand.


Give it a try as I think you will be surpised at how good it is, I know I  was.  The cleansers will take off all your makeup and leave your skin feeling moisturised and clean, so you dont need a makeup remover and a cleanser!

Priced from $22.00 up to $66.00 it really is affordable luxury skincare.
check out http://www.discountskincare.com.au/ for the brand!http://www.wholesaleskincare.com.au/

Facials in your own bath room


Gentle Exfoliator

Full Range of Elly B Products











Not everyone can afford to go to the Beauty Salon to have a facial. Prices can vary a lot from $50.00 to $500.00 depending on where you go. You can do a facial at home for a lot less and still use some really great products.



If you invest in a great Cleanser, Face Serum, Gentle Exfoliator and Moisturiser you can create a great facial at home.

Try the Elly B Organic skincare range which you could buy all of these products that would last you about 4 months for under $200.00.

You need to plan the time to do the facial, tell all the family to leave you in peace. Set up your bathroom so it is warm and comfortable, get all the products, towels and cloths you need ready, a few candles and a head band to keep the hair off your face.

Follow the directions on the products and work through the cleansing, scrubbing and then moisturising process and you will love the way you skin looks and glows.
You deserve a break from time to time and you deserve to use nice skincare, try Elly B you will love it. It smells divine and really is so creamy. Email any questions you have about the products and how to use them in a facial to jill@wholesaleskincare.com.au
