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!

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.
